We booked this Florence visit via BA holidays and chose the Hotel Berchielli as it seemed to be close to all the places of interest. We were not disappointed. Although the BA deal was a standard room the Hotel gave us a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the river with fantastic views of the Ponte Vecchio. The room was a good size with a large bed and plenty of storage space. It was very warm during our stay but the air conditioning was efficient enough to keep us comfortable at night and was not noisy. Being close to the river mosquitoes are prevalent therefore I recommend keeping the window shut at night. There is a busy road outside the hotel but this did not impact on us especially with the window shut and is nothing to get concerned about, in fact it adds to the experience. We had a B and B arrangement and found the breakfast to be ample for our needs. Some hot food is available I.e. Scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages but I imagine you could have eggs done differently if you ask. My only criticism is that the hot food was only warm bordering on cold at times. Plenty of cold options and cereals are available. Staff are friendly and helpful and special mention must go to the reception staff who are some of the most helpful people I have encountered at hotels, a big thank you to them for helping with transport timetables, taxis, phone calls to check arrangements and advice on travel all of which are essential in a strange city. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel their prices are very reasonable considering the location and the views. An hotel on the opposite bank charges up to £2000 per night for some of their rooms according to their web site. We will certainly use this hotel again when visiting Florence.
