“Old world beauty”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 via mobile

I wish I could have stayed more than two nights! It's a lovely hotel with lots of old world touches. Great location to see all the sites, along the river and walking distance to the Uffuzi Gallery. I stayed in a pretty double room with a nice sized bathroom, and with a tub! The staff so gracious and helpful, and the included breakfast is a nice way to start your morning. I will definitely be back!

Hotel has absolutely prime location only a couple of minutes walk from Ponte Veccchio with its jewellery and souvenirs shops. Rooms have (some of them) fantastic view over Arno river. I cannot say anything about breakfast because I had to leave the hotel very early to catch a flight (though the reception stuff was kind enough to pack me a breakfast box).

Location is a great advantage of the hotel, yet for those coming by car it is the greatest disadvantage. Parking (valet, not on site) is 37 euro per night (nearly 50 dollars), so for who stay longer than 2 nights taxi could be cheaper. Really big headache to sneak into pedestrian zone, navigator always turn you in circles telling the roads are prohibited for driving.

If you finally get there relax and enjoy Firenze. As I mentioned Ponte Vecchio is merely a stone throw, Duomo, Capella Medici and Piazza Repubblica are a few corners away, Mercato Centrale for gourmets is only 10-15 min walk.

To those who do not like long after dinner walks: you will find Toto restaurant very conveniently located, and much more important - full of incredibly tasty food. Try any, you cannot make a mistake

Room Tip: Room with the view to Arno river

Nice hotel in a great location ideal for sightseeing in the historical part of Florence. Rooms are spacious and clean. We had room facing courtyard -without view- but on the other hand quiet at night.
Pleasant and helpful staff at reception.
Would consider going again in future.

Stayed here for 3 nights we upgraded to a river view room well worthwhile. Excellent location between ponte vecchio and next bridge with access to some excellent shops and restaurants. Staff very friendly especially Giovanni the bar man! Everything very close at hand. Do the city your it is well worthwhile and good value for money. Breakfast excellent with a good choice of food. Lots of good bars and restaurants in the streets behind the hotel so worth a look. The hotel are happy to give you recommendations as well we did take them up one night and it was excellent.

This is a great hotel and a perfect location. You really can't go wrong staying at the Berchielli.

The staff is very, very friendly, they are taking care of just about anything you can think of. The rooms are extremely clean and the breakfast buffet is well thought out (ask if you miss something).

I would not stay anywhere else anymore coming to Florence!

Stayed here during a short break to Florence and if we ever to return to Florence I would not stay anywhere else. From the moment we arrived all of the staff did their best to ensure our stay was a great one. A lovely breakfast room and rooftop terrace enhanced our stay.

Room Tip: Try for a room with a river view

We have just stayed at the Berchielli for a week and it certainly lived up to its reputation. The staff were always polite and helpful. On leaving we ordered a taxi to take us to the station. In a matter of a few minutes the taxi was there and our cases already loaded by the porter - very efficient. Location couldn't be better - Ponte Vecchio 2 mins away, most other important locations no more than 10 mins. Because the hotel is on the banks of the Arno there is restricted traffic access along the front so there is no traffic noise. The lack of a restaurant isn't a problem, there are dozens of good places to eat with 5 mins of the hotel's front door. Do get a Firenze card if you are staying more than 3 days, it's definitely worth the 50 euros. Unless you want swimming pools or spas, choosing a 5-star hotel instead of the Berchielli would be a waste of money.
