We stayed for 5 nights at the Hotel Berchielli in April 2011.
The location was excellent - on the river about 100 yards from the Ponte Vecchio.
The hotel was elegant and the staff were all friendly. They were happy to recommend places to eat, and to advise on places to visit.
The buffet breakfast was very good, with food ranging from healthy fruit, cold meats and cheeses to good old eggs, bacon and sausage.
As the hotel, is near the Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi Gallery is very close, along with the Palazzo Vecchio. The Duomo, Palazzo Strozzi, Santa Croce and Accademia are in easy walking distance in one direction, and the Pitti Palace and Piazzale Michelangelo (to get the best views overlooking Florence) across the Ponte Vecchio in the other.
Thoroughly recommend Florence and the hotel .... and the ice cream!
