Il Bargello was the perfect stay for us, right from the cheery “we are on the 3rd floor” and the welcome sound of footsteps as Massimo hurried down to help us up the steps with our luggage, to the whole friendly ‘family’ experience.
The rooms were spotless and comfortable; breakfast was the perfect start to the day with freshly made cappuccinos, different types of bread, cereal, yoghurts and fruit juice.
It is very well situated within easy walking distance of all the major highlights of historic Florence, some of which can be seen from the secluded roof top terrace over a glass or two of wine, glasses and corkscrew provided, naturally.
Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Gabriella; she has a wealth of local knowledge which can be invaluable when deciding on how to make the most of the vacation, from advice on the best ice cream shop to the perfect place for an evening meal.
We really enjoyed our stay at Il Bargello and would not hesitate to stay here again.
