In The Heart of Florence
Great location, near Santa Maria Novella and all major attractions
What they say about us
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.
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 was an amazing host with excellent knowledge of the local areas and great recommendations for food and activities. We staying in room 8 which opened out onto the terrace (would highly recommend!) which was very spacious and clean. The room had everything we could need including towels and a hairdryer. Excellent location being within a 10 minute walk to the train station and extremely close to the centre of Florence and all of the attractions. Thank you!
My husband and I stayed three nights at Il Bargellino. We had never been to Florence, so most of our stay involved being away from the hotel. The location is perfect, you’re walking distance to every attraction. Carmel and Pino were great hosts - always providing helpful information and available to call a cab. I felt safe and secure in the establishment. The room is a good size but the bathroom was small. However, for the price, I really shouldn’t complain. Our room was always clean and the patio was nice - I did my makeup outside every morning. If you’re a light sleeper, such as myself, bring earplugs because while the chirping of the birds is a wonderful sound, it is less wonderful at 4 AM. 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 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
