Great location, close to main city tourist attractions and plenty of restaurants and osterias. Room clean, comfortable - we even had a balcony. Small bathroom but had all amenities.

This was a great find for my husband and I. We could get anywhere, were treated very well and thoroughly enjoyed our 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.

Very nice hotel with an excellent location. Sumptuous breakfast buffet and we also enjoyed the small bar where Giovanni was serving his very dry martinis.
