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.

      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

  •   Hotel Il Bargellino is just a 10-minute walk from the train station, and only about a minute away from Via Nazionale, but it's on a quiet street away from the crowds. You are only minutes away from the Duomo and within easy walking distance of everything in the historic center of Florence.
    The room is quite large, the terrace is lovely, and the hosts are friendly and helpful. The building is old, and I love the high ceilings and marble stairs. Breakfast is not included, but there are plenty of places to eat nearby.

      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
