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.

      I recently stayed here for 3 nights in room #2 on the main floor (shared bathroom upstairs). This place was such a treat!! Fantastic hosts, lots of character. This was a great room for solo traveler on a modest budget. Grazie mille!

  •   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.

      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.

  •   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.

      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.
