Hotel Berchielli
Ranked #46 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 April 2011

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!

We stayed at this lovely hotel on the recommendation of a friend and were so happy we did! It was beautiful -- large room right on the Arno, beautifully appointed bathroom, and we thought very reasonable for the location, amenities, etc. We took advantage of the nice bar where we were able to get a snack and a drink when we came back exhausted from sight-seeing and walking miles!
Anyone staying here will not be disappointed. It was the perfect place for our 4-night stay in Florence.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 203 with river view

If you are looking for a good value, comfortable and extremely friendly hotel in Florence. Look no further. The Berchielli has it all. We have now stayed there for around 15 years, and it has never let us down. The brilliant staff have mostly been there for many years, so it feels exceptionally comfortable when you walk through the door. Giovanni who runs the bar is a barman, Sat Nav. and restaurant guide all rolled into one. We stayed at other possibly more "Fancy" hotels before the Berchieli,. But this one ticks all the boxes for us. Thank You Berchielli, for looking afer our familly and friends so well for so many years. Tony Peirson.

Have just returned from a fantastic city break in Florence- highly recommend this hotel for the following reasons:
We booked a triple room through Expedia & were expecting a doouble and a single in the same room- we were delighted to find we had a double in the main bedroom with a single bedroom attached & two bathrooms! Wonderful decor and very clean. Our room was on the 4th floor and looked out over the roof garden- very pretty.
The location is a real plus point for this hotel- it is about a 5-10min walk from the Duomo and situated right on the beautiful River Arno- literally steps away from the Ponte Vecchio. The staff were very helpful, polite and friendly.
The breakfast was delicious- a great continental spread (especially the tasty pastries) & very friendly waiters.
The only two negatives I can think of are: 1) showers were not too powerful (as you quite frequently find in older hotels); 2) air conditioning was not particularly effective (it was nearly 30oC when we visited so needed good air con).
Overall I highly recommend this hotel- it surpassed our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would definitely return!

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.
