FABULOUS hotel! Clean and great staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better the second time around"
I just love the location of this hotel. It is right near the Ponte Vecchio. My room and bathroom this time was much larger. I found the staff at the reception extremely helpful and responsive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect location in relation to Ponte Vecchio and Pitti Palace area of town, but not walking distance from train station, if that is important. Right on Arno River. Very close to best high end shopping area. Included breakfast was outstanding, but I did miss having coffee available in room. Hotel staff was most helpful and accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very close to many sights"
Lovely lobby, nicely-decorated room; however, the room was warm and the air conditioning wasn't available yet (we were there in early April). There was a nice breeze when we opened the window, but we got mosquitoes in the room that way. Aside from that little problem, the breakfasts were terrific and the outside spaces were lovely. Do ask for a room […] that opens to the courtyard to avoid street noise. Ours was an interior room and it was very quiet even though the hotel is quite close to the Ponte Vecchio.

"Great location with superb views."
The hotel is well located and we had superb views over the River Arno. The room was very comfortable, although, in our opinion, not to the four star level. Details, such as a box of Kleenex, coffee/tea making facilities and meager bathroom accessories were missing. The staff were efficient but not over friendly and not forthcoming with information on […] the area. The bartender was pretty unfriendly and made us feel as though our presence was a burden! The WiFi was not working. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Book a river view room (See photo)"
We were lucky to book a river view room...It had a balcony with double doors that opened over the river with direct views to the Ponte Vecchio...IT was a fantastic spot to enjoy an evening glass of wine. The hotel is superbly located in walking distance to all sites and excellent restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Super hotel in Florence"
We stayed at the hotel the last week in March 2013. The hotel room was wonderful and very large especially for Europe. We had breakfast every morning at the Hotel which had eggs, breads, fruit, meats, & juices. It was really very good. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The location is excellent, we walked every place in Florence, and it wasn't […] too far to walk to the train station for our day trips to Venice and Rome. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was our 5th stay at Hotel Berchielli. Great location right on the river and walking to any of the attractions in Florence is a breeze. Staff is great as is the facility. I would not think of staying anywhere else. Hotel has a fantastic breakfast room with staff and large selection of food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central, friendly, and efficient hotel in Florence"
A small hotel, beautifully located near many sights. The staff is friendly and efficient. Single rooms don't have the river view--you need a double for that. There is a bountiful breakfast buffet, and the welcoming service staff will bring tea or coffee to your table rapidly. Only one problem--the room was too hot. I highly recommend the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent location and service"
Excellent hotel in the heart of Florence. Easily one of the cleanest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will stay here again"
The only thing I did NOT like was the room was way too warm. Had to leave the window open all the time. On week-ends it was noisy with the window open. Everything else was great. Loved the location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Just spent two weeks traveling in Italy. Worst Hotel of the lot. I agree with the Brit comments. No way this is a 4 star. Lobby is nice, but the Hotel is just a bottom line operation. Impersonal staff, who ignore you for no reason. (with the exception of a couple of young ladies, who I assume are in training). Marginal no host breakfast. Rooms seem […] to be furnished with cast offs. Elevators are ready for a museum. Floor plan all chopped up. This is your basic tour package hotel and is run as such. 3 star at best.

"Great location, service and room, highly recommend"
This hotel is in the perfect spot. It's truly 4 stars - by Italian standards, which is a little less nice than American standards. The bed was very firm and the pillows were flat and very firm also, otherwise the room was comfortable, clean and nice. The bartenders were fabulous and everyone there spoke English. The free breakfast was excellent. The […] location can't be beat! Right on the river near the famous bridge, the Ponte Vecchio. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Where to stay in Florence"
The Hotel Berchielli is amazing! The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The view from our window overlooking the Arno River and the Ponte Vechio, transports you back to the Renaissance era. The hotel provides a delicious breakfast, better than most 5 star hotels. The staff greets you with a genuine smile and a boungiorno, catering to all your […] needs. I am flying back to Italy in April and plan to detour back to Florence for two nights at the Berchielli Hotel. A huge two thumbs up. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for your money!"
Good location, helpful staff - especially those in the breakfast room. We had a room on the 6th floor and it was quite warm; we ended up opening the window. We had drinks one evening in the bar, but there was no bartender in sight - finally had to ask at the front desk and they sent somebody. Overall, a very nice hotel - good value for your money!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could not have been nicer...."
Perfect hotel in a central ideal location. There is a beautiful square with a Tiffany & Co. right behind the property. A delicious free breakfast was included. Very nice staff...my room was small, but it was in the back and therefore quiet and the price was right...I could not have been happier.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outstanding hotel, outstanding location!"
This is a beautiful, mid-size hotel in the heart of Florence. The location cannot be beat. You are a two to ten minute walk to all of the great art, architecture, and culinary destinations you want to see in Florence. You are a 15-minute walk or five-minute cab ride to the main train station for your day trips to Siena, Pisa, or Chianti. Wonderful breakfast, […] all very luxurious and nice staff. The rooms are "European", so don't expect a palatial bathroom or an over-size bedroom. But when in Italy, live like an Italian, and you will LOVE this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel in a good location!"
The hotel is located right along the River Arno, not too far from the Ponte Vecchio. Making it a good place to walk to everything...The Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens, all the different piazzas, restaurants, shops, etc. The staff was mostly helpful. Big piece of advice....DO NOT drive a car in Florence if you don't have to. It's […] a nightmare. Parking is almost impossible. Take a taxi from the airport, which cost between 25 and 30 euros. And then just walk if you don't plan to leave Florence. We did rent a car and drove south to Siena and then further south to Montalcino and spent a couple nites in a B&B there, which I would highly recommend. But you don't need, nor do you want, to drive around Florence to get from place to place within the city. The breakfast included at the hotel was pretty decent. There's a bar off the lobby which is a nice place to hang for a glass of wine and get something to eat if you don't feel like leaving the hotel for a nite. The bartender that was there the whole week we were isn't Mr. Friendly. I don't know if it's a dislike of Americans or his general disposition, but he didn't go out of his way to be nice or offer great service. And we spoke moderate Italian. Overall, we liked the hotel. It had what we needed and was clean and comfortable. I'd recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Hotel, Excellent Location, Great Value"
The location of the Berchielli is an A+ on the Arno River between the Ponte Vecchio and the Micheangelo bridge. If it's within your budget, treat yourself to a river view room. The view is truly breathtaking but be prepared for the traffic noise if you sleep with the windows open. The room and the public areas are quite basic- clean, comfortable, a […] little tired but well maintained. Staff are very professional and reasonably pleasant. The breakfast is good- the spread is good quality but it's the exact same every day. The hotel is located in easy, close proximity (walking distance) to everything you'd want to visit in Florence including the train station if you take a day trip to Pisa or somewhere else. Finally, this was great value for Florence, just don't expect Four Seasons or St Regis or Savoy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Thanksgiving Italian Style"
Wonderful hotel in a great location. Staff and service was great. Had a beautiful room for three with our daughter and a great view of the river. Only complaint is the noise from the traffic in the morning but it was worth it to enjoy the view. I stay in hotels about 80 nights a year and this was a very enjoyable hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Centrally located, walking distance to everything."
Beautiful hotel located right on the river. The service was outstanding. We stayed an extra 4 days since we loved it so much. We will definitely stay here when we go back. Massimo provided excellent service and made our trip extra special.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for a hotel in Florence with great location."
The hotel was very well located and in good condition, it was clear from entering it that it was classy and should have great service. The room was spacious and very clean and all the staff were very helpful. The buffet breakfast that ended at 11 am was great finally a reasonable hour to end breakfast for persons on holiday.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great boutique hotel close to many sights and shop"
Enjoyed coming back to the hotel each night. Giovanni the bartender was a welcome sight and made us the best martinis we have ever had! He was a joy to talk with. Look forward to seeing him again. He is a valuable asset to this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A comfortable, well located hotel."
The hotel is very well located - easy walking distance to all major sights. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a little small and somewhat dark, but comfortable and very adequate for my needs. I will definitely stay here again on any future trips to Florence.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was quite nice and the location was good. We were able to walk everywhere and it is close to the Uffizi. If you want to spend more time near the Duomo, you could walk a lot less with a location closer to that part of town. Overall, the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The only negative was the lack of a shower curtain and a sitdown […] shower arrangement. I see the pictures show it differently, but that was not our experience.

"Perfect combination of comfort and location"
We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and I wanted something very special for my wife. Hotel Berchielli exceeded my expectations. The hotel is located just off the Arno river in Florence on the North side, an ideal location for visiting the Uffizi, Academia and the markets. The hotel facilities and features were superb, Breakfast was served […] every day and gave us a good start. I highly recommend it to anyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Stay in Florence"
Perfect location...close to everything. The entrance to the hotel is special as well. The room was a surprise, as we had to go up a flight of stairs after we entered our room. It gave us a nice storage area under the stairs. The room was average size...good size bed and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and nicely arranged. Very nice hotel and […] would stay again for sure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel and location"
Terrific location with some rooms overlooking the Ponte Vecchio. Close to all the sights, but just far enough away to be quiet. We'd stay again on any visit to Florence.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel Berchielli was by far the best of all the hotels we stayed in Italy. We appreciated the convenience of wifi in our room where other hotels required us to be in the lobby and/or charged for the use. Room was clean and spacious. Also, staff at the desk was amazing. Breakfasts were quite good and we couldn't beat the great location.We definitely […] would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Upscale hotel in chic neighborhood"
This is a first rate hotel near the Ponte Vecchio and as well, steps from nearby neighborhood shops selling designer labels. Large clean rooms, some facing the Arno. Bountiful breakfasts. Congenial, helpful staff. Would re-book here in a flash, if we were to return to Florence. July 2012Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Wow Hotel! A great experience"
This hotel was wonderful. A beautiful suite, great views with patio off our rooms, a separate suite for our granddaughter, and a grand palace setting. This hotel enchanted our granddaughter. Staff was very helpful and responsive. We would highly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was superb! The staff was attentive, helpful, and knowledgable. The hotel, itself, was beautiful and in perfect condition. It was a short walk to nearly everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view of the arno"
The room and the large windows overlooking the Arno was fabulous. Of you can get a room on the river side it is worth it. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was outstanding. The only negative thing I could say is that the air conditioning was not great but tolerable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfection: location, comfort, service & views"
Hotel Berchielli provided the perfect location to enjoy Florence--just blocks to the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and other landmarks. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a large window overlooking the Arno river. The bathroom was modern and well-equipped with a tub and shower. Luxurious linens and towels, an incredible breakfast buffet, and […] a pleasant, helpful staff, always ready to assist. We were there 5 nights, and it felt like a great value for the cost. I can highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"super convenient - yet quiet"
Great stay. Room large by European standards. Staff very helpful. Would be nice if shower weren't just a fixture on bathtub wall that sends water into bathroom floor, but that was a small issue. Terrific value!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice but did not meet my expectations"
This is a very nice hotel. They execute well in all aspects. It is generally a good place but my personal experience did not meet my expectations. I picked this place because the reviews talked about great views and nice rooms. I was planning some down time on a long trip and I wanted to spend some time in my room. The staff was friendly enough. The […] room actually had 2 flights of stairs inside of the room. When you open the door to the room you have to climb 2 small flights of stairs to get to the room. Not bad but it annoyed me. My room had a small window in the corner that looked out over the building next door. No view. The room was large enough but not really big. There was only a bathtub and it was rather small. A shower head was fitted in the middle decreasing the usable space further so taking a shower was somewhat unpleasant. It was not a room that I wanted to spend any time in. They had a "roof garden" but it was on the 4th of 6 floors. The view was not bad but not spectacular. There was no service in the roof garden and the chairs were awkward metal chairs that were very uncomfortable. The location was quite good. Easy walking distance to everything. If you stay here pay for an upgraded room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location and lovely rooms"
This hotel is amazing--beautiful rooms, stained glass, charming common patio. It is located just steps from the Ponte Vecchio and right next to a wonderful old church. It is close to fantastic restaurants and cafes and walking distance to other major landmarks. The food at the hotel in downstairs restaurant (just a few seats) is passable, but not the […] reason for the stay. The included-in-the-price breakfast was the best of the trip--eggs, croissants (of many kinds), breakfast meats, toasts, other pastries, fresh fruit and juices, everything you could want. An added perk is the terrific silver shop on the cobblestone street behind the hotel! I would highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Finally, a European hotel with a real shower!"
Well maintained and in an excellent location, I would highly recommend this hotel. The only drawback is the typical European small, hard bed. Other than that it was a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
