The small, 10-room Hotel Il Bargellino is run by a friendly couple and geared
toward budget travelers. Situated about a five-minute walk from the main train
station, this value hotel is within walking distance of most major attractions, yet slightly
off the beaten path. Rooms are colorful and cozy, but dated and a little shabby, and equipped with mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers. Amenities are limited to a lovely outdoor terrace with a resident parrot and free Wi-Fi. Travelers might also want to consider Locanda dei Poeti, which is just down the street and offers a bit more amenities, including a small public kitchen and free breakfast.
Basic budget hotel with dated, antique-laden interiors
The hotel is a basic property that's reminiscent of an Italian grandmother's house, with oil paintings on
the walls and old wooden cabinets lining the narrow hallways topped with antiques,
doilies, and potted plants. The vibe is homey, though dated and a bit shabby. The hotel lacks common areas like a dining room or lounge, but it does have a spacious outdoor terrace furnished with several small
metal tables and chairs, which is also home to a colorful resident parrot that hangs outside
on the railing.
Located on a quiet, narrow street in central Florence, within walking distance of many sights
The hotel is situated on via Guelfa, a typical narrow street connecting
the city center with the main roads. The main train station, Santa
Maria Novella, is less than a 10-minute walk, and several main monuments are within walking distance, such as the Duomo, which is about 10 minutes away. Florence Peretola Airport is a 20-minute drive away or 25
minutes by bus. There are several bus stops within a 10-minute walk offering
easy access to surrounding cities and outlying attractions. Cafes,
restaurants, and gelato shops are on every corner, but the hotel is slightly tucked
away from the heavily trafficked streets.
Colorful rooms with old furniture and mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffeemakers
The selection of rooms range from tiny singles with shared
bathrooms to spacious quadruple rooms with private bath, bidet, shower, and
shared access to the hotel’s patio terrace. All rooms are colorful with vibrant walls in multiple hues and furnished with old wardrobes, desks, chairs, and small chandeliers. There are no TVs in the rooms, but Wi-Fi
is free, and all are equipped with kettles, mini-fridges, microwaves, and espresso makers. Air-conditioning incurs a nightly fee. Private
bathrooms are tiny, with small showers, and some units have showers directly in the room, which might pose privacy issues for some.
Free Wi-Fi and outdoor terrace, but no breakfast, parking, or dining area
The Il Bargellino is a simple property run by a husband and
wife duo who are helpful with tour reservations, restaurant recommendations, and luggage storage. There's free Wi-Fi access in every room, but the hotel
does not offer breakfast nor does it have a bar or restaurant. There's also a lovely
outdoor terrace available for guests.
