I reviewed this hotel in 2008. Nothing about the physical nature of the hotel has changed. Rooms are still outstanding and you real feel you are in the heart of Tuscany. The hotel is right on Piazza Signoria across the Piazza from the Palazzo Vecchio. The difference this time is the ownership. Claudia and Bruno now own the place, but according to Bruno, it is Claudia's place. They are both fantastic. They helped us immensely. Bruno even sat down with us to have a couple of bottles of wine one night. He even helped us with a change to our dinner plans after he told us the place we were going "could not tie the shoes" of the place he recommended. He was right. He has a million stories that would make a great book or movie. We love them both. One caveat, there is no elevator, so if you cannot walk steps or carry bags up steps you may have an issue. But if you can stay, don't hesitate. It is fantastic.

We absolutely loved our stay here. The hotel is in what feels like a secret corner of the busy and dramatic Piazza della Signoria, in walking distance of nearly every major sight in Florence. The hotel is in a former convent and so has large wooden beams and deep-set windows that look right onto the piazza. The breakfast was simple but satisfying with fresh fruit and cappuccinos, and Bruno and Claudia were friendly and helpful and helped us send out our laundry. The shower was large and modern - not true at other hotels we stayed at! - and the wifi was strong (ditto). Would return without question.

I stumbled upon Casa Garbo when booking for Florence and booked it mainly because of its great location (near Uffitzi & Ponte Vecchio). The location was GREAT - overlooking Palazzo Vecchio. This is billed as a B&B and it is, technically but it felt more like we had our own personal apartment in the center of Florence. We took the room with a view over the Piazza. The Piazza was where all the action was, but the room had nice thick windows and the action finished early. The owners don't live on site but were available during the day to help us arrange taxi & laundry services. We felt free to come and go as we pleased. Felt more like an apartment with breakfast & maid service.

Room Tip: We upgraded to a room with a view of the piazza

Extremely charming old work hotel in an amazing location. Nothing was more than a 10 minute walk and lots of wonderful restaurants, museums and shopping right out the door. They have a very small breakfast room so they brought our breakfast to us in our room each morning which was lovely. The staff was very helpful with dinner reservations, directions and calling a taxi. We were a family of four and had a large room on the top floor and a smaller room on the floor below for our teenage boys - it was the perfect set-up. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Our room was amazing, but didn't have a view of the piazza. If that's important you should request it
