“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

This was a great B&B. The rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast was included; cereal, fruit, yogurt, juice, bakery, coffee. Great way to start the day! The place is centrally located. Everything in Florence was an easy walk fromthe B&B. The only draw back were the stairs; however they worth it. Great way to burn the calories. I would recommend this place as a wonderful place to stay!

We loved this place. It was so nice to have access to a kitchen and living room with a computer. Rooms were clean and spacious.. it was quiet @ night. Breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal, yogart, and cappuccinos to order...perfect. Gabriella and Lynn were very attentive and helpful. The best part was the wonderful patio looking out over Florence. It was a lovely place to sip wine and rest your feet after a busy day visiting museums.

A friend that lives in Florence recommended Il Bargello, we were not disappointed. It is clean and everyone there is very helpful. The stairs are a bit rough when you arrive and leave with your luggage but the location just cannot be beat. And the bathrooms are very nice too.

We had a great time at Il Bargello. The best thing to do after hours of sightseeing is kick back with a bottle of wine on the roof terrace before your late dinner. We spent 2 or 3 hours hanging on the roof, chatting with other guests (who, luckily, were very friendly). Our room and bathroom were the largest there than anywhere we stayed in other cities in Italy. My only possible complaint is that although there is breakfast, which is convenient, the fruit and pastries are not fresh daily. Lynn had great recommendations on places to eat and even made some reservations on our behalf before we arrived.

Il Bargello provides a true home away from home. Upon first meeting Gabriella and Lynn, I felt as if I'd known them for a while; they're so friendly and full of great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. The B&B is in an amazing location -- just a few minutes walk to the all the major attractions -- and has a rooftop patio with lovely views. (Other guests have posted photos.) The rooms are comfortable with each having ample room for luggage and its own bathroom. The rooms do not offer televisions, although one is availble in the shared living room. With so many things to do and with such gorgeous scenery, who wants to watch television while in Florence anyway? The B&B aslo offers a laptop in the living room for guest use and free wireless internet. Breakfast is served daily until 10am. I highly recommend staying here.

We will give 4.5 stars to Il Bargello (Tripadvisor does not allow half star).

Gabriella and Lynn communicated with us via emails before our trip. We went during low season, so the entire B&B was essentially empty (there was only 1 other girl who was staying there).

We stayed in the Michaelangelo room, which was roomy - had 2 twin beds (put together to make it a "queen" bed - but all 3 places we stayed in Italy did the same thing), a small desk, 2 nightstands, a closet, a safe, and a small ottoman. There were heaters and A/C in the room.

Pros:
1. Breakfast was simple but yummy - we had juice, breads, Nutella/jam/butter/PB, yogurt, and cereal. The cappuccino machine was not working on our first day, but Lynn fixed it on the 2nd day.
2. We really liked the kitchen and living room area. We helped ourselves to juice/tea/coffee in the kitchen during the day, and there was a microwave that we could use (but never needed to). There were tons of books that guests could borrow/read in the living room. I read one of the books on Uffizi prior to visiting the museum and found it quite helpful. There was a laptop in the living room area that's free for guests to use. There was also free WiFi for guests.
3. we were too busy to relaxed/enjoyed views from the terrace, but it looked like it would have been lovely to sip tea/coffee there.
4. Food/restaurant recs from Lynn

Neutral:
1. Street noise: tolerable, but it's not during tourist peak season. Although it's on the 3rd floor and it's next to a smaller alley, street noise still reached our room (but it seemed to be a common "problem" in Italy since most buildings were older and have thinner walls/windows).
2. Stairs: we figured it's a good way to burn the calories that we consumed from eating so much gelato/pasta/pizzas.
3. Location: it's about 10-min walk to most major attractions and there were many restaurants nearby. However, Florence is really small, so chances are no matter where you stay, it will be relatively close to everything.

Cons:
1. Water pressure from shower was weak
2. No shampoo/soap provided
3. Although our reservation emails said check-in was before 2pm, it turned out no one would normally sit at the reception desk unless you notified them otherwise. There was a change to our itinerary so we arrived 2.5 hrs earlier than expected. I did email Gabriella the evening prior to notify her of the change, and I figured since we would arrive before check-in time, there should be no problem. However, when we arrived, Gabriella said that we were lucky that she happened to be home early that day, otherwise we would have waited for 2.5 hrs on the street w our luggage.

Room Tip: Michaelangelo room was at the end of the hallway and was roomy.

Was pleasantly surprised by Florence and blown away by Il Bargello. Very comfortable, very convenient to just about everything we wanted to see. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Outstanding value.
