Elegance and sophistication overlooking the Arno and Ponte Vecchio

Since the late 19th century, the Hotel Berchielli has been charming guests with its timeless elegance and sophisticated atmosphere, a true gem that fully leverages local craftsmanship and the finest materials. With breathtaking views over the Arno River and Ponte Vecchio, the hotel is a combined resting place and destination for discriminating travelers looking for the ideal base from which to discover all of the city's local treasures.

  • Prime location overlooking the Arno and Ponte Vecchio

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.

FLORENTINE JEWEL

HOTEL BERCHIELLI WAS ABSOLUTELY THE PERFECT CHOICE FOR US. SITUATED ON THE PONTE VECCHIO, WE WERE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF ALL THE MAJOR GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS. MASSIMO, FRONT DESK PERSONNEL, WAS AWESOME WITH HIS ATTENTION TO HOTEL GUESTS AND PROVIDED SPECIAL SERVICES WE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE ON OUR OWN. WE WILL AGAIN CHOOSE THIS HOTEL ON OUR RETURN TO FLORENCE.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

ANTICO FATTORE RESTAURANT WAS A SHORT WALK FROM THE HOTEL AND WAS FANTASTIC! WAITERS WERE HELPFUL IN ASSISTING CUSTOMERS WITH THEIR MENU AND WITH MAKING SUGGESTIONS FOR ENTREES OUTSIDE YOUR USUAL COMFORT ZONE. A SPECIAL DESSERT (FRIED APPLES) WAS A DELIGHT.

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!

A jewel.... Incomparable!

Perfect setting for new visitors and old timers alike. Location on the River Arno makes the hotel charming and close to the key attractions of the old city. The staff excels in all aspects....never saw a frown. We were the envy of all of our family who also were staying in Florence. We would return to the Hotel Berchielli in an instant.

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.

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.
