What they say about us

  •   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!

      The hotel is a 10 minute walk from The Duomo, the train station, and within easy walking distance of other attractions.

    Rooms acceptable. Rust in the shower, but price good. One coffee pod per person per day, plus a small cake of some sort. But they’ll usually give you a couple of extra, or charge .50 per pod, which is normal elsewhere. Fridge in room. Bed comfy.

    Rooftop patio is used by the family. Festivities start at 8 and go on to the wee hours on a weekend night. The night we arrived, there was not a chair to be had or used by anyone not invited to their dinner. Wood fire was festive, but smoke drifted into every room. This is not the place to stay to recover from jet lag. Echoing in halls is also pronounced because of the hard floors. Room came with earplugs, which should have been a sign. A little of that is to be expected at this price.

    WiFi nonfunctional throughout 2nd floor. We learned the owner sometimes shuts it off. Ask people at desk and they’ll tell you about the 2nd server.

    Lots of return guests. Hotel safe. Just a few blocks from the main Mercado. People will talk to you on the patio. Owners very helpful with tips in person and by email. More

  •   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

      We arrived with 3 adults and 2 children. It was easy to find right out of the train station. Carmel was friendly and so accommodating. Our room had three beds, two single and a king. The bathroom was quite large, and VERY clean. We were able to walk anywhere we wanted to go, and never used transportation the whole 5 days we were there. Food was available within a block, but please, root out the small, family owned places; it’s worth it! We bought meats, cheeses, fruits, and wine and ate out on the homey and comfortable terrace. I can’t say enough good things about this place. I felt at home. 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 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!

  •   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.

      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
