What they say about us
Great place, in quiet area in center, good price, super clean, owners lovely. In one minute you are at central market, train station and conference center. Travel to firenze lots for business, will return for sure
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.
My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights on our two-week trip through Italy this past September. We had a very lovely stay here, though the biggest downfall was the bed being a bit uncomfortable. No breakfast on site but plenty of nearby cafés for coffee or a quick bite. The hosts were very friendly and gave lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Minutes away from the train station and all the action Florence has to offer. Would highly recommend!
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
My girlfriend and I stayed here recently. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We particularly enjoyed the terrace for relaxing. The room was fine with a small fridge. Would have been perfect if the room had an en suite. Would definitely stay here again.
The combination of great location, fantastic hosts, and the large terrace made this a very good choice. Our room was lovely, and was one of those opening onto the terrace. It was wonderful to have no street noise while being in the heart of Florence. The hotel is a short walk from the train station, and walking distance to major sights.
Hosts Carmel and Pino's hospitality was exceptional. Information provided to guests (about special exhibits, major and lesser-known sights, where to buy things, etc.) reflects their attentiveness to guests' questions and needs. Their knowledge about options for transportation to the airport, including the relatively new tram, was very helpful.
This was our third visit to Florence, and we found Hotel Il Bargellino to be a very special accommodation. 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.
Just a short walk from the train station lies this quiet little property near all the major attractions that Florence is famous for. The rooms are clean and updated, some offering a rooftop terrace, and a chance to meet Cleo the owner's bird as she suns herself outside on nice Tuscan days.
Everything you would want to see - The Duomo, the Uffizi Galleria, The Academia, are easily accessible from this location. The location also is close to the train station which houses many tour opportunities for those who can't walk easily.
But what makes this hotel a special gem are the owners, Carmel and Pino. Their hospitality makes you feel like a visiting friend. If you want to experience the charm and character of Florence, this quaint hotel is the perfect introduction to the city.
Best to book directly with the owners instead of through a travel site. You will get the best personal service that way.
