This hotel and city was the highlight of our 18day trip to Italy. We spent 4 nights at this hotel and could have stayed longer. The charm and location of this hotel made me fall in love with Florence. Our standard room was excellent with free wifi, a great view of the back lanes and hearing the church bells added to the charm. It makes you feel you are in a fairytale. Overlooking the Arno river 2 mins walk to Ponte Vacchio, you could not ask for a better location. While you will not want to spend much time in your hotel in Florence, this hotel lobby is so comfy it is a great temptation to just sit back and relax at the bar that offers snack and cocktail service and a very friendly bartender who speaks excellent English and tells great stories. The front desk staff and breakfast staff are all great and helpful in suggestting good eating places which are not tourist traps. Because it is colse to the river, watch out for the mosquitoes at night so don't open your windows. If you get bitten on the tfirst night like we did, inform the front desk asap and "they quickly talk to the mosquitoes and ask them to leave" so you can have a peaceful non- mosquito night.The staff have a great sense of humor. We would go back in a blink to this hotel which in my opinion should be a 5 star. Hotel Berchielli is truly a gem and the breakfast is just wonderful.
