“Great location and great service”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

My stay at the Berchielli was over the superbowl. Trying to get a ticket was difficult, howerver staff made a few phone calls and we got the reservation. Upon arrival one employee indicated to the other we were from the Hotel Berchielli. We were then upgraded to the VIP section with the promoter. This made for a great nite out in Florence. The rooms are well appointed, very clean and had nice linens. The breakfast was quite good with fresh fruit, juices, cold cuts and cheeses, pastries, scrambled eggs, bacon, and patries. The bathroom was missing a shower curtain, however others in my party had similar rooms but included the shower curtain. We did not get to enjoy the outside siting area as it was too cold, but it looked nice. The location is the best part of this hotel, as it is on the water and close to everything. I would love to give this hotel a 4 1/2 star rating, but cfannot give it 5 stars.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a shower curtain, if important.

Hotel is perfectly located on the Arno river near the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. Staff is exceptional. The manager, Massimo Fraus, demonstrates a true interest in his guests and their comfort--willing to go the extra mile. This attitude extends to all of the staff. My wife and I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view--worth extra money

We stayed at the Hotel Berchielli for 4 nights, including New Years Eve. We had booked a deluxe river view room, and what a view! Room was very clean, and spacious. Staff were very helpful and polite, without being intrusive. Breakfast was included in the price, very large selection, great quality. Hotel is so close to everything, and there are some fantastic restaurants just behind the hotel in Via Terme. Would highly recommend, and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a deluxe river view room.

Location, location, location. This hotel has it. Just steps from the Arno River and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, and so close to everything. Our room, located on the inside of hotel overlooking the side alley, was spacious and comfortable, with a large balcony - every direction provided picturesque window boxes and shuttered Tuscan windows. Bathroom was also spacious and appears to have been newly renovated. Bed was quite firm, too firm for our liking, but as we traveled through Italy we realized this was the norm. The only negative we can think of, is the the walls are thin. At times it felt like our neighbors were in our room - even during normal conversation. Other than that, everything was great.

Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Any request we had was responded to immediately. Guiseppe the bellman was great! Always had smile on his face and asking how are stay was going. The breakfast at Hotel Berchielli was our favorite of all the hotels we stayed in during this trip. Quite elaborate with an excellent variety, and it was the little things like chocolate drizzled custom designs on top of our cappuccino froth that made it extra special. We definitely plan to stay here again on our next visit to Florence!

Other hotels we stayed in during this trip: Palazzo Ravizzo in Siena, and Hotel Diocleziano in Rome.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the Arno River, costs a bit more but worth it I'm sure. Our stay was...

We visited Florence mid October 2011 and, as usual, consulted trip advisor to help select our accommodation. Whilst it took us a while (and a noisy traipse across the city with our trolley suitcase) to get to the hotel, we were blown away with the location so close to Ponte Vecchio, and the Uffizi.
Some elements of the hotel felt a bit old fashioned (the many lamps took us a while to figure out) but overall it was very clean and comfortable with great sized rooms. We had a couple of drinks at the bar and found the staff friendly, and both enjoyed seeing what pattern would be on the top of our cappuccinos at breakfast.
The concierge got us tickets for the Uffizi for entry just a couple of hours after we asked too - very helpful.
We had a few issues with travel adaptors and some very strange sockets, but managed to remedy with a trip to the supermarket so probably just a lack of research on our part. The hotel is obviously made up of a few buildings and initially we found it a bit maze like to get to and from our room...
A great and comfortable base to explore the many sights Florence has to offer - whilst remaining surprisingly quiet.

Dear Customer,
we wish to thank you for the nice review.
Our electric sockets are standard italian therefore clients will need adapters to serve this purpose.
At the front desk we provide the main international adapters on request.
Accept our best regards.
