Hotel Il Bargellino
Ranked #116 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 July 2011

Il Bargellino is a gem. Close to station and easy walk to all the tourist sights in the historical center, this well priced hotel is the best choice you can make when traveling in Florence. The rooms all vary in decor, and amenities, but they are quite lovely, very clean, and some open up onto the terrace. The terrace, available to all guests, is the best part of the hotel....a place to kick up your feet, relax with a bottle of wine and a book, sunbathe, or have a dinner.

Carmel and Pino, proprietors, are extremely helpful in either Italian or English, and if anything is not to your liking or there is a problem with the room do not hesitate to ask either of them. They are happy to help, fix, etc..any problem you may have...although there were no problems on my trip!

There is excellent WIFI in the hotel too which is very very convenient.

I make of point of staying here every time I am in Florence and it makes my stay far more enjoyable. Oh, and there is also a wonderful little Trattoria Guelfa next door.....the food is delicious and not very expensive. Perfect when you just arrive and are not yet ready for the tourist crowds in the center.

Wonderful hotel, gracious hosts, and a real treat...Il Bargellino...Grazie mille!

Carmel and Pino's beautifully-decorated hotel (complete with rooftop garden and parrot) was the ideal Florence home. They were also fantastic hosts--funny and full of information. I would, without hesitation, stay there again--and recommend it wholeheartedly.

I have just completed 9 nights stay at the most lovely B&B in Florence.
Il Bargellino surpassed all my expectations-from the perfect location-a 5-10 minute walk to all major attractions, to the home away from home feeling of the rooms(#9 opens onto the beautiful terrace), to the gracious and helpful innkeepers-Carmel and Pino.
They even have an entertaining parrot-Leopoldo-in case, like me, you are missing your pets at home! Carmel and Pino were very helpful with directions, offers to make reservations, guides as to where to eat, drink and even introduced me to things in I had never heard of, such as the Ferragamo shoe museum-such a cool place!!
If you are looking for a charming and very reasonably priced B&B in Florence-give Il Bargellino a try-it was wonderful and I will go back!

Room Tip: try for a room which opens out onto the terrace!

Stayed here 2 nights in June, 2011. Room wasn't any great shakes, but it was clean enough. Hosts were friendly. I was surprised to see such a negative review close to the same time we stayed there. The lovely outdoor terrace was a delightful way to relax after a long day. I could see that it could get quite loud if someone decided to stay up late on the terrace. Yes, there's a 'locals' atmosphere with the TV on in the kitchen, but that's part of the charm. Our room had a clean sink shower but we used the toilet area down the hall, which was quite clean; no odors. About a 10 minute walk to train station and 10-15 minutes to Duomo.... that location was just right for us. For the price (half of what we paid in Venice for not a whole lot more), it was just right.
