“Doubt there's better value - great”
Reviewed 6 April 2011

Walked passed it three times which is easy to do when looking for almost anything in Florence. Like the Tardis inside with no indication from outside of a classy reception and bar plus relaxing sitting area. Side entrance not exactly easy to find from the street.

Directly on the Arno and close to everything. Rooms brilliant and breakfast until 11am which is rare for hotels nowadays.

Reception people were so helpful it was almost embarrassing and almost second guessed me on occasion.

Pino Grigio 16 euro a bottle in the small bar which we found was a fraction of what was charged at some of the overpriced and pretentious restaurants.

Paid £150 per night double room B&B through Expedia (sorry Tripadvisor) including local taxes. Not cheap but for the position and quality would be hard to beat.

In a word - brilliant.

Generally good staff (front desk seemingly overworked at times) and clean rooms overlooking the Arno. Mattresses and bedding were very comfortable. Rooms a bit noisier from street noise than Lungarno Suites.

This is the first time I have booked a hotel via the internet, and not through personal recommendation. I read some of the reviews, and hoped they were true - they are, the hotel is excellent. Our rooms were exactly as requested (twin, non-smoking with a bath in the bathroom) and were extremely clean, comfortable and more importantly, silent. We did have a few mosquitos in our room, due to us leaving our windows open, but these were quickly sorted out by the hotel staff. Breakfast was delicious, with a huge variety of things to eat. The hotel is in a fantastic location, with easy access to all the historical sights.

This visit was our 6th stay at the Berchielli, booked another 4 night break for October 2011, cant wait, perfect location with a river view, friendly staff nothing to much trouble for them, and the breakfast is of a high standard. good indication of how well this hotel is reguarded is the number of returning clients you meet on your stays, so I think that says it all.

Our family of 6 LOVED this hotel. The location is wonderful, steps from the Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi Museum. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Our triple room offered 2 bathrooms (!) and a private bedroom for our son (in addition to a spacious bedroom for us). Room 422. The breakfast (served from 7-11 AM) is more like brunch offering eggs, bacon, pancakes etc in addition to the delicous breads, cereals, meats, cheeses, fresh fruits. My sons loved the hot chocolate. The staff is not pushy or overbearing. They simply meet any need/ answer any question you may have. The price is great for the experience you will have. Wish I were still there.

He had a road trip in Italy and stayed in Berchielly 3 nights.
The hotel is located few steps from Ponte Vecchio and all main attractions. Traveled with a baby, 1 years old, and found it very comfortable.
Definitely this is the best city center hotel room I have ever stayed. The room was huge, clean, nice decorated with Florence atmosphere and a small balcony with perfect river view. Also very quite, don't worried about the traffic. Bathroom was large and spacious clean. Internet access a bit slow but free. Breakfast offers plenty of choice and the staff very kind and helpful. Hotel also offers parking 28 Euro per day but we parked in public area 10 min waking distance. Will stay here again when next visit Florence.

When I was choosing a hotel for my wife's 40th I really wanted something special. After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I decided on the Berchielli. The reviews are right. It has a great atmosphere with really professional staff who were really helpful. We really enjoyed the breakfast, the pastries were especially good, as was the hot chocolate my daughter had most mornings.
The hotel itself is in a great central location, right on the river, giving you very easy access to the shops and restaurants on both sides. There were some really good places to eat near by. I'll be putting reviews up for them separately.
