The one-star Hotel Il Bargellino feels as comfortable as your favorite aunt and uncle’s house. That is, if your aunt and uncle lived in the historic center of Florence. Bostonian expat Carmel and her Italian husband Pino are the ultimate hosts, and their welcoming 10-room hotel is a comfortable property with mid-range rates.

The medium-sized rooms are each decorated with antiques, bright accent walls and eclectic artwork. We loved the zigzag edging on an oak furniture set in one room and an elegant scalloped mirror in another. All rooms have modern amenities, including air conditioning, mini-fridge, coffee maker and free Wi-Fi. Bathrooms, some private and others shared, are utilitarian but clean.

An enormous rooftop terrace is (quite literally) the highpoint of the Bargellino. White iron tables and chairs set on a terracotta floor make it a great place for gaping at rooftops and bell towers. The friendly house parrot, Leopoldo, resides up there, and in warmer months Carmel is known to fire up the grill.

Il Bargellino’s location is enviable. It’s a quiet spot, yet less than five minutes from the train station and the bustling San Lorenzo market.

About the Hotel Il Bargellino neighborhood

North of the train station is one of Florence's most colorful neighborhoods. San Lorenzo is home to much of the city's foreign population, many of whom man the stands at the bustling local market. The area is the cheapest place to shop and snack in the center of the city. The streets around the market are home to kebab stands and Asian markets galore, as well as cheap clothing and shoe shops.
