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.

Rooms are elegantly furnished in soft, neutral tones, yielding an atmosphere of peacefulness and calm--welcome amenities at the end of a busy day.

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.

Just OK

Pros: Location Clean Cons: King bed was two twins pushed together with the crease down the center of the bed. Impossible to sleep. No shower curtain. Wireless internet at dial up speeds, very slow. Breakfast was not very fresh.

Berchielli Hotel, Florence

This was our second year in a row staying at this hotel. The location is great for walking to the attractions. We like the hotel except that the A/C had not yet been turned on for the season. We slept with the window open which was ok. Clean rooms and great staff. No shower curtain in the tub shower but not too big of a deal.

Atmospheric and Artful

Absolutely loved this hotel. Staff was gracious and helpful. Adored the bartender, [...], who made killer cappuccinos! Location was great, especially if you want to go to the Uffizzi Gallery. Could walk to the Duomo, and other historical sites and was located right on the Arno River. Beautiful furnishings and spacious room. Clean and artful bathroom. The breakfast buffet was fabulous and even offered gluten free choices upon request. Also loved the sound of horse hooves on cobblestone and the sounds of church bells in the air. Plenty of shops and cafes and restaurants to choose from. All in all superb.

If you happen to be gluten intolerant or have Celiacs Disease then just request meals that are "senza glutine" and most nearby places were very accommodating. Great risotto at most restaurants we went to!

Fabulous location with fine Italian ambi

I've been to Firenze too many times to count. The location can't be beat. The breakfasts were abundant with lots of choices. And you are in walking distance of everything that is the most important to see. It is not a huge hotel with tons of people coming and going, but it has a welcoming Italian flavor that satisfied all our needs. The front desk handled all our requests. For us, it was a gem.

Beautiful

The hotel turned out to be the most beautiful one I stayed in during my entire stay. The room was large and the bathroom marble just beautiful. The location was very good, a few meters from Ponte Vecchio and teh center of Florence. The view of the river was terrific. The breakfast buffet is definitely the best ever, lots of choices. Everything was fresh and tasty. I love their Prosciutos.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Piazza San Lorenzo (the outdoor market) is only a few blocks away and the shops on the Ponte Vecchio are just a few steps away as well.
