What they say about us

  •   I don’t get the bad reviews, we had a lovely stay. The owners are available if needed, but not overbearing. The home is sparkling clean and stunningly retains its features from a time gone by. The eclectic mix of art is superb. It’s easy to throw open the shutters and windows, and be mesmerised by the comings and goings below. Yes, the streets are cleaned early, is that not a good thing! I take earplugs wherever I stay, it just makes sense. The indoor food market is only round the corner, it’s fantastic and upstairs the variety of restaurants are top notch. Will I stay here again- Definitely.

      This was our second stay in this hotel. The easy walking distance from the train station, wonderful hosts and terrace made this once again a very good accommodation choice.
    The large terrace is a peaceful oasis where we relaxed with beverages and snacks on a beautiful October afternoon. Guests in all rooms have access to the terrace (including rooms such as ours that don't directly open onto it).
    The information that hosts Carmel and Pino provide to their guests is exceptionally helpful and complete, including a booklet in the room (local tips, where to buy things, info on major and less well known sights), pamphlets in the lobby, and their availability to answer questions.
    Room 6 was lovely, furnished with antiques. This spacious, comfortable room, with a very large bathroom, was especially appreciated after more than three weeks of traveling.
    Thank you again, Carmel and Pino. More

  •   A very clean functional room with daily room service and very quiet too. The large patio was a big bonus...a beautiful spot to relax with a glass of wine or snack after a long day of sightseeing. Carmel was very helpful in any manner that we required. The location was perfect, minutes to restaurants, coffee shops, and local historical sights.
    We had 5 enjoyable nights and would recommend this cute hotel.

  •   I booked a single room for a one week stay Knowing that I would have to share a bathroom, so I was delighted when I was shown to my room that there was in fact a shower and I would only be required to share a w.c. in an upstairs bathroom. The hotel really is only a 10min walk from the station,and only a 15min walk from the historical centre of Florence.This hotel is very much a budget hotel with few facilities, no coffee making options or in-room tv ect., but it does have a good deal of charm and everything is clean and tidy and your hosts are friendly and helpful
    The single room is on the ground floor at the front of the hotel and is directly by the street, so I found the complimentary ear-plugs helpful. My bed was made every day and towels were changed as necessary. Wi-fi was poor in my room but much better on the roof terrace which is available to all guests and not just those with a room giving direct access. On the three occasions I visited the terrace I was given a coffee and tartlet by my friendly host. More

      This is the second time I've stayed here. Carmel and Pino really go the extra mile to make your stay special. The hotel is charming and small. The terrace is beautiful! Espresso on the terrace is a great way to start the day. There's a fancy coffee maker in the room that makes outstanding espresso. They also leave a little donut or danish which is a really nice touch. The location couldn't be better. It's an easy walk to everything. The train station is a short five minute walk. There's too many excellent restaurants within a five minute walk to list. I would never consider staying anywhere else in Florence. I can't wait to return! More

  •   Carmel and Pino are enthusiastic hosts that help make your stay in Florence a great experience. Easily walkable from train station as well as only 10 minutes from the Duomo. Can’t say enough about the great hospitality. Also enjoyed the spacious terrazzo in late afternoons.

      I had the best experience staying at Hotel Il Bargellino at the recommendation of friends. Logistically, the hotel is very convenient to both the train station as well as most attractions. The hotel is clean and lovingly decorated and maintained. It really captures the character of the city- particularly the beautiful terrace!

    Even better than the hotel, however, are the kind and gracious owners Carmel and Pino. I was traveling alone and they were so welcoming and helpful. It was a really special experience that I won’t forget. I hope I can be lucky enough to return someday.
