“Two great stays”
Reviewed 8 October 2009

My husband and I recently stayed at the Berchielli both before and after our Tuscany villa rental. Both times we were very pleased with everything. Our rooms were exactly what we asked for and were ready mid-afternoon. We booked a river view for both stays and were glad we did. These rooms are large (by European standards) and both had two large windows over looking the river. The baths were nicely done and extremely clean. Yes, the first did not have a shower curtain, but we worked with it. (The second bath did have one.) The other nice aspect of our rooms were how quiet they were. We heard no noise from within the hotel, and despite the location on the river, the street outside the hotel is not busy at night. The location is hard to beat. Other than the Academy and San Marco, we were only a ten minute walk to most locations and less to the Uffizi.

The staff was always pleasant and helpful. When we told them we would miss breakfast on the last morning because of an early plane flight, they ordered a boxed breakfast for us to take with us! Otherwise, breakfast in the dining area was excellent. I would definitely highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

On my first visit to Florence it was nice to stay at a hotel so centrally located. Besides that, there isn't much that this hotel offers for young people. Most of the staff have been working at the hotel for years and seem unhappy. The hotel is old and in need of renovation. The carpet looked old and there is no doorman to great you or help with your bags.

The room and bathroom were a decent size and the free breakfast was also pretty good, but I will stay elsewhere next time.

I stayed here for 4 nights, the staff was excellent. especially one of the men at the front desk, he knew it all. was great about where to go, what time, etc. It was so clean, the bathroom was sparkling - not what I have seen in other euro "4 stars." It's right on the arno so a perfect location, walking distance to everything. only thing is that it took about 15 min to walk to the train station, other than that - fabulous. it's a little hard to get to in the beginning but just follow the way to the arno/uffizi and you'll find it.

Hotel Berchelli had so many wonderful amenities, but it was the fabulous staff that made our stay so special. The front desk, the breakfast staff, the bartender, and even the luggage handlers were all so helpful.

Our room didn't have a special view of much of anything, but the room itself was perfect. Individual a.c. controls, gorgeous bathroom, and especially free wi-fi in the room were all we wanted.

The location could not be better with the Ponte Vecchio so close and just a short work to the Uffizi, the Duomo, and the Accademia. Breakfast had everything we wanted and was delicious.

The Berchielli was my favorite hotel of all our Italian stay.

As everyboby said , location and views cannot be beaten... Hotel is good , but if it were in another location , it would have been a two / three star hotel at best. Breakafast is excellent . Free wi fi . Parking is extremely expensive (but all hotels in the area charge the same). Overall a great , value for money ,stay as long as you get a room with a full view.

This hotel is a jewel. The location is fantastic... a few hundred meters from the Pontevecchio. The staff are brilliant: Very helpful, proud of their work and knowledgeable. The hotel is very clean and breakfast amazing. I booked it because it had breakfast included and what a saving when there are 5 of you travelling! You can have drinks/tea on the rooftop terrace. Only request would be for them to redo their bar area... a more cosier one would have been perfect. Highly recommend this place!

Hotel Berchielli is 2 short blocks from the total mahem that is the Ponte Vecchi (Old) Bridge. However, the hotel is quiet and serene. Easy to get in and out, and walk everywhere.
I did not spend a lot of time researching, so was very pleased with the experience here.
All the August requirements were met - excellent air conditioning, very comfortable bathroom and quiet area, even with the windows open. Large shutters along with the curtains to keep out daytime heat.
Bathroom had very nice fixtures and toilettries, linen hand towels and terry bath towels. Also bed linens by the Italian company Frette. Sheet freaks, you know that name! Cool, crisp and delightful.
Helpful people at the desk, lovely waiters at breakfast and full American breakfast included. Eggs, bacon, cheese, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, cappucino. Will definitely hold you through to a late lunch.
I would recommend!
