“Perfecto! You're going to want to stay here again, and again, and again!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Stay here.

You'll be happy you did.
Everything about this place was great!
Super friendly from the second I walked in the door.
Being a Bostonian, after reading Carmel was from Boston, I instantly felt drawn to stay here.
I was traveling solo on this part of my trip and this place was EXACTLY what I was looking for + more.
Comfortable, clean, inviting, tons of character.

TIP: Hang out on the patio, drink some vino, chat with other travelers, learns some tips, make some friends, relax.

After having such a good stay in at this hotel in Florence, I didn't want to leave and go to my next destination, Venice!

Is it too soon to come back?!
Thanks for everything Pino, couldn't have been a better experience!

You will see me again!

Ciao

We have just returned from our vacation in Italy and 3 days in Firenze. We found this lovely hotel by recommendation from an owner of another property we stayed at in Tuscany. Carmel and Pino were very friendly and accommodating. Carmel and I exchanged several emails during our planning process and she was even so kind as to help us with making reservations for the Accademia museum which is just down the street from the hotel. Everything was so close and within easy walking distance-market, Duomo, museums, restaurants etc etc Especially the train station which was literally about 3 short blocks which was great as we didn't have to go very far to catch our train back to Rome to catch our flight home. The room was very clean and we in particular enjoyed the rooftop veranda where we met some other American travelers and shared our travel experiences. We were the novices in the group as many were much more experienced travelers. A very homey atmosphere. The parrot with an attitude and mind of his own was a delight. We definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence. If we are to return to Firenze, we certainly would stay here again.
Grazie Grazie, to Carmel & Pino for your hospitality.

Room Tip: We stayed on the main floor and did not experience any noise.

Stayed for a week and the location is brilliant. 5 mins from the station and 10 mins from the main sights and the Cathedral.
The owners Carmel and Pino were lovely hosts and can give all sort of advice of where to go.
We had a front room that was cosy and adequate, with fantastic period decoration, chandelier and a lovely mirror both stood out.
There are also rooms at the back of the hotel that open out on to a lovely communal patio where you can relax with a few beers or a bottle or two of Chianti!
Would definitely stay again. Thanks for a great time in Florence!

Great centrally located hotel in Florence, Italy. The owners, Carmel and Pino, are great hosts and make you feel right at home. Carmel and Pino are very helpful with directions, restaurant suggestions and making reservations for all the museums so you can avoid the lines. The large outdoor rooftop terrace is awesome for relaxing for morning breakfast, in between sightseeing adventures, and for a drink before dinner. Bathrooms were just upgraded. Il Bargellino is a very welcoming and comfortable place to stay. We will definitely stay there during our next trip to Florence.

Room Tip: The triple has a huge newly renovated bathroom. The rooms along the terrace have double door access...

We stayed only one night due to our itinerary but wished we could have stayed longer! The location is very convenient to transportation and only a short walk to the sights. We enjoyed the neighborhood setting, near the train station but seemingly a world away. We stayed in room 6 and found the renovation to be quite nice (perhaps the best shower in Europe?). The hosts were very helpful and friendly. We will stay here again given the opportunity and wish that we could have stayed longer!

I'm a repeat customer over the last 15 years and have to say that Il Bargellino is consistently such a welcoming, comfortable and convenient place to stay. Carmel, Pino and Rosita go above and beyond the call of duty and really make you feel at home in the middle of Florence.

Room Tip: Rooms are all great. Even those without bathrooms are fine, as are the shared bathrooms.

Had a great stay, perfect location for seeing all that Florence has to offer. Carmel and Pino as mentioned in other reviews are expectional hosts. Having a terrace outside room allow us to enjoy some outside down time. Carmel proudly showed us the beautifully renovated Room 6 that had been mentioned in a earlier post. The location of the hotel is close enough to all you want to see, but out of the tourist area madness. Ask Carmel for some dinner recommendations as we had some lovely meals there by.
NOTE: For bike tourists, Carmel and Pino locked our bikes in their garage for us.Also were kind enough to allow us to cook breakfast on the terrace.e
