Il Bargellino is a clean and basic hotel about 2 blocks north of the train station and about 2 blocks west of the indoor Central Market. It is out of the main tourist traffic areas but within walking distance of the center. This is a good location if you want to escape the tourist hustle and bustle and still be staying overnight in the old city. If you want the amenities of a 3-4-star hotel, this place is not for you. Besides offering a good value product, I see the Il Bargellino Hotel's major competitive advantages as:
(1) Great personalized customer service (museum reservations, taxis, directions, restaurants) and interaction,
(2) Access to the relaxing garden terrace (a paradise in the big city), and
(3) Excellent English speaking capability for monolingual Americans like us.
