Rooms

Elegantly furnished, the 76 rooms at Berchielli Hotel Florence combine soft, neutral tones, thick pile carpets and precious marble, all combining effortlessly to produce a warm and harmonious atmosphere. Rooms are completely soundproofed and include air conditioning, satellite TV, mini bar, direct-dial telephone, complimentary Wi-Fi, safe, hairdryer and deluxe toiletries.

Features

Since 1890, the Hotel Berchielli has been charming guests with timeless architecture, stately atmosphere and sophisticated adornments fully deserving of the hotel's four-star status. Stained glass windows, chrome and wrought iron works, fine marble and stone blend together effortlessly here, the end result which is more museum than lodge.

However, the hotel's welcoming and polished staff quickly dispel any notions of cultural solitude. Indeed, visitors are cherished as long-lost friends, a compelling reason why so many return year-after-year, whether for business or leisure.

Beautiful hotel

We really enjoyed this hotel. The location was good. The view from our room was spectacular. The window opened too. It was a beautiful hotel with a good breakfast and great coffee. The staff was very friendly. They got us a couple of museum tickets. The only complaint was the "king" size bed was 2 twins. But I read that that is very common in Italy. I would stay there again.

View of the Ponte Vecchio

The Berchielli Hotel was a wonderful choice. Superbly located, the hotel also has a great staff and a lovely bar (Giovanni, the bartender, makes this a great experience). Ask for a room overlooking the Arno with a view of the Ponte Vecchio. While the rooms are not large or very plush, they are clean and the bathrooms all updated. For the money, this hotel was terrific!

The restaurant Toto, just down the street from the back of the hotel (SS Apostoli) was terrific and gave great value for the price.

Nice hotel in great location

wonderful staff who called in our dinner reservations when we had language issues making them ourselves. Located in an area that isnt in the heart of the tourist traps. Nice view of the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Great experience.

Trip to Italy

Having received the Berchielli as a recommendation from a family member, we were completly satisfied. It is a bit of the old mixed with the new and a wonderful experience for our first time abroad. It will be our choice again should we ever have the privilege of returning to Florence.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Just stay local on everything. Trataories (Can't spell it but when you get there you will see), Pasta of all types / pizza / fish / hams of all types / lamb - don't be afraid to try anything-drink nothing but local wines (why would you go to Tuscan wine country and drink California or French wines?). Restaurants are expencive but nice to do at least once. Eat at 8:30 and later. That is when the locals are there. Every one likes for you to be there. Other than France who gives a rip if you are there or not.

Friendly Staff and Great Location

There's something very pleasing about being served by waiters in white coats first thing in the morning; and the little touches like a design in the foam of our cappuccino were what set this hotel above the bar. On top of that, the front desk staff was exceptionally accomodating and helped us take care of a pressing issue upon our arrival. Our room was spacious and clean, and the bathrooms were beautiful. The location was excellent, right on the banks of the Arno and only a minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Florence.

Location, Location, Location

This hotel is in a great location in Florence - Truly a shopper's paradise. I stayed here w/my immediate/extended family - Total of 3 rooms. The views were spectacular, the staff was AMAZING, and overall it was a perfect experience. The facilities are a bit dated, reminding me of the hotel from "The Shining", but everything else offered far outweighs this element. We loved Florence, and we loved Hotel Berchielli!!

Great choice for Florence stay

I researched many hotels before deciding on this one to stay a week in Florence. It turned out to be a great choice. First of all the location was great. It is a short walk down river from Ponte Vecchio. Always a great view. This made it easy to visit activities on both sides of the Arno. I recommend walking up to the Piazzale Michelangelo when you first get there while you have the energy and to give you a great overview of the city. We were there Oct 9-16. We lucked out on perfect weather. We took a taxi to the hotel from the airport which took about 20 minutes. It cost 25 euros, a little more since it was Sunday. At the Berchielli, the staff is excellent. This includes front desk, breakfast and daily maid service. We booked the basic room so was pleasantly surprised to get a nice room on the 5th floor with a terrace overlooking the courtyard. This was fine because we wanted it to be quiet with an inside room and it was. You do hear a church bell but it just made it more charming. The room configurations are all different. Ours included a desk and small stocked minibar with enough room for our own bottle of water. The bed was on the firm side but surprisingly comfortable. We slept well. The bathroom was clean with a shower/bathtub combo. If you like lotion or hair conditioner, bring your own. I thought the blow dryer worked well. One reason I decided to stay here was because it had a full buffet breakfast. There were scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, thin pancakes, rolls, bread you could toast, pastries, whole and cut-up fresh fruit, yogurt, custard, cereals, cheese, juices, ice, coffees and tea. I like a big breakfast so I don't need to worry about a big lunch and instead use the time to visit the museums and sights. I didn't find anywhere special to recommend for dinner but it was all fairly good with similar offerings. We took a bus tour to Siena and San Gimingano one day and would recommend that. We also took a bus tour one afternoon to Pisa which I enjoyed but wish I had time to see more on both tours we found on the internet. I couldn't imagine some of these places in the heat and crowds of summer since I thought it was fairly crowded most places we went. Expect lines at the Uffizi and Accademia which we got reserved tickets ahead of time. Also there can be lines at the Duomo both to go inside and to climb up to the top of the cupola for amazing views. May not be good for those afraid of heights or claustraphobic. Plan on going to the Cathedral's museum to learn about what it was supposed to look like. Try and catch a guide for better understanding. Visit the Piazzas especially della Signoria with the Loggia dei Lanzi. We really visited most museums and churches that were recommended by quide books. Something to appreciate and learn in them all. Plan on visiting the Pitti Palace and take plenty of time to see all the exhibits and gardens. There is always more to see at museums that you think. Prices may seem high for some but it's part of the experience. We also took a train to visit Lucca. Love exploring little Tuscan towns. Do your research and plan wisely so you can see all you want as well as take in the beauty and charm of the area like sunset on the bridges, eating gelato and enjoying evening walks. The city is well lit-up at night. It is full of every high-end name brand store. Plan to have enough Euros on you since most museums just take cash. Also be prepared that the museums don't allow photos to be taken and are well watched. I think so you have to buy the books. Be stealthy. This is a wonderful hotel and place to visit especially if you appreciate art, architecture and history. Yes, there can be mosquitoes so be prepared if you are not covered up.

Lovely hotel, good location

The room was large and comfortable. We had a beautiful balcony that was the highlight of the room. Bathroom was small with a strange shower. No English speaking TV stations. Breakfast was included and was very good. Hotel staff was helpful. It is not a 10 minute walk from the train station. It took more like 30 min. Would recommend taking a taxi as dragging the luggage though the streets was not fun. 5 min walk to the Uffizi and a 20-30 min walk to the Accademia depending on how lost you get. Good location for shopping as it's very close to the markets. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.
