This was our second stay at the Berchielli and it didn't disappoint on being revisited. Far from it, in fact!
The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect. Everything is within easy walking distance and it is a great base from which to explore this beautiful city.
The staff are extremely helpful and courteous and were always able to help out with excellent English when our Italian failed us!
Our comfortable (if a little dated) room overlooked the river and it was a delight to open the shutters every morning to check out the weather and watch the world go by. My only regret is that there were no coffee making facilities in the room and we were very glad that we had taken our travel kettle with us!
Breakfast was more than adequate and set us up well for a day of exploring.
Do visit the ice cream parlour on the other side of the river just by the Ponte Sante Trinita. It really is sublime - the best ice cream I have ever tasted.
And don't hesitate to book the Hotel Berchielli. You would struggle to do better.
