“Wonderful spot in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We loved staying at Il Bargello B&B! We were able to walk from the train station easily enough and had no problem finding it. It is centrally located and within walking distance of all the best sights in Florence. Lynn and Gabriella were extremely helpful (I can't emphasize this enough) and were most willing to share their knowledge and recommendations. Lynn pointed us in the direction of the market as soon as we arrived and made dinner reservations for us. Gabriella was a life-saver when we needed to make last-minute reservations for accommodations in Siena. If you don't like stairs, this may not be the place for you, but we looked at it as taking the place of a mini-workout on the stairmaster every day! Lynn and Gabriella also highly recommended the 3-day Florence Pass - we bought them and are glad we did. It saves time not having to stand in line and allows use of public transportation. If you can, take the bus to Fiesole for the afternoon. Wonderful views and Roman ruins await you at this hillside town about 1/2 hour outside of Florence. Another great asset of Il Bargello is the rooftop terrace. We took our lunch there to relax for a mid-day break almost every day and enjoyed a bottle of wine every evening while taking in the evening lights and spectacular views from the top of the B&B. I would return to Il Bargello in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Choose a room with bathroom en suite if it matters to you.

Thank you so much for the review! There is always so much to do here and so many great places to eat. From fruit stands to gelatto Florence is a gastronomic delight.

Gabriella and Lynn were the perfect hosts, made us feel welcome and were a wealth of information. The terrace was a fabulous place to enjoy a little wine and the company of fellow travelers. The use of the kitchen facilities in the evening was a nice extra. WiFi was great. The only downside was that the room was very small with just a bed and a small table in the room. We could have used a chair. We think we may have just ended up in the smallest of their 5 or 6 rooms. The Il Bargello is in a great location, an easy walk to most everything. We loved our stay.

Great location, so close to everything in the middle of Florence! Really nice place to stay, awesome rooftop and lounge area so you don't have to just hang out in your room when you're at the hotel. Wifi access was great. Lynn and Gabriella were very helpful during our stay, arranging museum and dinner reservations.

We had a wonderful stay at the Il Bargello B&B! Perfect location, clean, everything we look for when traveling. Kitchen access was a great asset; loved the fresh fruit! Wireless access was terrific. The rooftop terrace was beautiful. Thanks to Gabriella and Lynn for your warmth and hospitality.

Yes the stairs are a challenge, but you can't beat the location in this beautiful old building. Gabrielle & Lynn were very welcoming & helpful with restaurant & taxi reservations, etc. Breakfast was great & a nice time to meet the other guests.Rooms were clean. The terrace was also a plus...we highly recommend...

The IL Bargello Bed and Breakfast embodied for us the spirit of Florence. This family owned property is managed with pride and care. The hospitality of Gabriella and her team was outstanding. They are warm and welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge and provide very reliable restaurant recommendations (thanks Lynn!). Our room was lovely and spotless.It is very conveniently located within the core of the museum area. In the morning you have a nice array of breakfast items to select from and they are ready to make you a delicious espresso or cappaccino - what more could you want? My husband and I had a wonderful experience staying at this bed and breakfast and were fortunate to have a lovely room with its own private balcony.

I visited Florence for 4 days with my sister, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Il Bargello. The location is convenient to the historic center of Florence. We had early morning reservations to the area museums so we missed breakfast each day, but we took full advantage of the rooftop terrace. It was a great place to enjoy an evening bottle of wine, listening to the evening bells & watching the sun go down. The room we had was comfortable, and the room rates were excellent. After a few days, we were even able to make the trip up the several flights of stairs without being too winded! It was a wonderful home base for our first trip to Florence.
