“B&B Il Bargello Rocks! Best stay thus far in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

Our stay at Il Bargello was like a honeymoon without even being on our honeymoon. Upon our arrival, we were met by the lovely Allison who was very accommodating and knowledgeable about sites, museums and restaurants – as well as the best places for shopping in town. The Canadian-Italian owner, Gabriella was a gem. She was ever so helpful with information, reservations and wonderful regarding our luggage mix-up at the airport – She actually went out and picked it up for us! WOW! The location was superb, as all the major sites and museums were all within a 10 – 15 min. walk. Our room was very clean and nicely appointed with a modern bathroom and all the amenities that any Canadian girl can ask for. I can still smell the freshness of the crisp sheets. Breakfasts were ample and delicious and there was never a problem enjoying a luscious cappuccino on the rooftop terrace. However, my best memories will be sipping a glass of red wine looking up at the starry night overlooking Florence.

This b&b was absolutely amazing. I stayed here for 3 nights with a friend and just loved it. The b&b is clean and spacious; the owners are wonderful and very helpful, and the location is the best! Right in the middle of everything in Florence and a short walk to the Duomo. Couldn't ask for anything better... highly recommended!

My husband and I had high hopes for Il Bargello, and we definitely were not disappointed. This wonderful little place is tucked away on a quiet side street right in the centre of Florence. The location couldn't be more perfect with most of the major landmarks and museums less than a 10-minute walk away.

Upon arrival, our bags were taken away while the friendly receptionist mapped out nearby restaurants, museums, scenic walks and anything else we might be interested in. Cafe Yellow is fantastic!

Our room was comfortable with typical simple Tuscan furnishings. The en suite bathroom was clean with plenty of towels available. It just doesn't get any better than waking up to the sound of church bells and beautiful morning light streaming in through the open shutters. Heaven.

The Canadian-Italian owner and her staff were all incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the area. If you needed anything, they sorted it straight away.

A few final points to mention:
1. Be warned, the B&B is located on the top floor of the building, which means walking up seven flights of stone steps. We felt so sorry for the poor laundry guy who had to make the trip multiple times.
2. The unlimited, free Internet access via a laptop in the lounge area was a thoughtful touch, which we really appreciated.
3. The view from the rooftop patio is unforgettable. Grab your glass of wine and watch the sunset.

This is a great place to stay...an enthusiatic and friendly hostess, very nice rooms, baths and common areas, it's quiet, and just a couple of blocks from most of the A-sights in Florence. But it is on the third floor by European count...fourth floor by American math... and it can be a tough walk at times. Gabriella and Alison are ready with good recommendations on side trips, on resturaunts, on off-the-tourist-grid places to visit. We would certainly return.

Wonderful location, excellent facillity, super dinner recommendation from Alison, perfect early AM taxi pick-up arrangements. Nothing but strong positive things to say about this B&B!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here .... but the 3 levels of steps are the only downside to the facillity

This is my second stay at Il Bargello and couldn't be happier! The rooms are very clean and the location is perfectly situated in the city center. The rooftop terrace is a great place to open a bottle of wine in the fresh air. The only downside is there are 3 flights of steps to reach the B&B with no elevator. If this is not an issue, I would highly recommend the Il Bargello!

As we had only spent 1 day in Florence on a 21 day Trafalgar tour, we had planned to spend 2 nights in Florence and wanted a place that was a central B&B. Il Bargello was perfect! Everything is close by, including a small supermarket type shop and laudrymat (don't laugh, after lugging suitcases accross Europe for weeks, this was handy!). The B&B is located in a very old building (and yes, those stairs!) which adds to the charm. The bed was very comfortable, shower lovely and the rooftop a perfect place to enjoy wine and cheese after a day of being emersed in the history and beauty of Florence. It was very quiet and we were allowed full run of the place - which was really useful. They have free internet there two which is a bonus and both of the lovely ladies there spoke perfect English and made us feel very welcome. Their advise and help was invaluable!
