Reviewed April 14, 2013

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

OMG! I LOVE THIS HOTEL! Okay,the day when we arrived we were all wet cuz of the rain,we had no idea where we were staying that night. We went to this hotel,they were so nice,and said yes we can stay there right away. They're really a lovely couple,felt just like home staying there. The location is really good,we can walk from the station to this hotel,everything is so good. And the restaurant Carmel recommanded us is so good,price is good,food couldnt be better and all the waiters speak english! Btw the room is really amazing,and comfortable,we had a wonderful stay in Firenze! Thank you Carmel and Pino! We're from Taiwan,and WE LOVE YOU:)

Carmel and Pino, are the most accommodating, friendly people you will ever meet. They are more like hosts than owners. If you need something all you have to do is ask! They booked museum tours for us and recommended delicious places to eat. The terrace is beautiful. You can hear the church bells and view the Duomo and relax. At night we drank some wine and all the guests got together and talked. We met some amazing people from Montana, and other various countries. It was so nice to mingle with other guests and learn about how people live in other places in the world. It was one of those lovely once in a lifetime experiences where strangers get together and bond over wine and cheese on a beautiful terrace in downtown Florence. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated, spotless and comfortable. Thank you to Carmel and Pino for such a lovely stay!!

Room Tip: We loved room 1 on the first floor. So lovely!

Since my first stay at Il Bargellino back in 2004 , my ideal " home away from home" was discovered. I stayed here a few more times. This small, charming and perfectly located hotel is superb. A true jewel of Florence. For many years I resisted writing reviews about it just to keep it a secret from the usual splash of tourists in Florence. For selfish reasons, of course ! But after a recent visit this year, I discovered ( once again ) that the owners of Il Bargellino are still as true and charming as ever. That the place itself will always be perfect : the lovely rooms, the upstairs terrace where all guests sit and chat after long days visiting the sights, the camaraderie . The ever smiling Carmel and Pino, always ready to help, with every detail of your stay . Once you step out the door: Florence is at your feet !! And when you return , it always feels like coming back home. I can't imagine Florence without it !!

Room Tip: Just ask Carmel or Pino for what you need !!

A group of 5 of us stayed here in late Summer and had a fabulous time. Carmel was away but Pino was extremely friendly and attentive and made sure that we all felt very welcome. Pino was very good-natured and patient with our pigeon Italian!

We had two rooms between the party - ours had a sink and shower inside which were all in good order and it no problem for us to use the toilet down the hall.

The whole place has a Mediterranean feel to it and is all kept nice and clean. The outdoor terrace is very large with plenty of sunbeds - it was wonderful just chilling after some sightseeing; soaking up some sun while planning the evening. There is even a funky pet parrot to provide that little extra character (quiet as a mouse after dark). The views over the Florentine rooftops from the terrace really helped set the mood for our stay.

There is a very informative and helpful booklet provided with the room recommending places to visit etc and Pino was very happy to recommend where needed, even finding us some nice parks nearby for a morning run.

Breakfast wasn't included, but coffee and small snacks are available; for the price we thought this was excellent value and would certainly return.
