We loved our stay at Il Bargellino!. Carmel (formerly from Boston) and John are great hosts. This lovely hotel is within walking distance of all major sights in Florence. Carmel gave us some great information as to sights and restaurants. The hotel has great rooms decked out with antique furniture. We had a room which opened up onto a huge terrace available to all guests. We spent part of one afternoon on the terrace with their pet parrot and the neighbor's cat. Very clean. We would definitely stay here again!
