Stayed in Florence for 3 nights for a break from Venice. Loved it! Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The free wi-fi was appreciated (we had to pay in Venice). The hotel staff were efficient and just friendly enough to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. The best person for us was the barman who we found on our first afternoon when it was pouring with rain. We enjoyed a most delicious and reasonably-priced bottle of Pinot Grigio (16 euro). After that, he was happy to bring us our drinks to the rooftop terrace each evening and when I asked for coffee at the end of the night, it was delivered promptly. One night he even brought it to our room as I'd forgotten tyo wait for it (too much Pinot Grigio!!!).
The view from the room was awesome. I am a big fan of the film 'A room with a view' so was thrilled with all aspects of Florence. I'd definitely go back to this hotel.

We had booked two rooms - one with river view which was spacious and very nicely furnished. On arrival, we requested the other room to be upgraded to a river view which they immediately did and without charging extra for that. Staff is excellent, very friendly. Breakdast was included in the charge and had a good variety - infact, whenever we requested for any fruits or additional items they immediately provided that too. We will definately stay in this next time we come back. Special thanks to Simone and Antonio whom we spoke to most of the time. We have travelled so much and stayed in so many different hotels, this is at par with one of the best ones. The only downside is the bathroom tub which doesn't have shower curtain, everytime you take a bath the water is splashed throughout..

Our 1st floor balcony room overlooking the Arno and Ponte Vecchio was perfect. In fact. we spent 5 days at Hotel Berchielli and everything was perfect. The entire staff, front desk, bell, housekeeping and restaurant staff, was professional and friendly. When we made our reservation, we were warned about noise since our room was 1st floor and right on the front of the hotel (I definitley wanted a balcony). How nice for the staff to be so professional to warn us in advance, when most others would not have mentioned it at all. We loved being on our balcony, sipping wine and watching the passing tourists. Breakfast was beyond expectation. A lot to choose from. One concern was that they do not keep heat on the eggs, bacon and sausage as hotels in the U.S. do. I asked them the warn my eggs every morning, and they did without hesitation, making them delicious, and me happy. Hotel Berchielli is a very nice place.

The hotel was really good.

First, were upgraded to a suite upon our arrival (we were 3). The room was very nice.

The Hotel is 5-10 minutes from everything but in a quiet street, with less noise, very close to the Ponte Vecchio

The hotel offered Free Wi-Fi and a huge buffet for breakfast which was really amazing.

Only thing is that they weren't ready for us when we checked out at 6 am ( we lost 10 minutes and they had to send the bill by post) but the rest was so good that we can't complain.

The hotel is at a very central location. Walking distance to all the key sites. The room is beautifully decorated and spacious. The service is great. I would stay at the same hotel whenever I go to Florence.

Hotel Berchielli is oddly picturesque! Our room had an old world charm to it, with big windows that opened wide to a gorgeous view of the Arno river.

The bed was firm but relatively comfortable. Our room had a separate living area and a comfy chair. The wireless internet worked ok. The bathtub / shower did not have walls or a shower curtain and was a little awkward to shower while trying to keep the floor dry!

The location was excellent! We walked everywhere (even in the rain) and only got a taxi to and from the train station (because our bags were too heavy to lug there).

Hotel Berchielli is a really nice hotel and definitely lives up to its four stars. Our room was spacious and definitely big enough for me and my wife with two large suitcases.

The bathroom was also quite large but as many have pointed out it lacked a shower curtain. This was not a big problem though.

The front desk staff was always helpful when we needed anything.

The breakfast buffet was really good with both cooked food like sausages, bacon, scrambled eggs and pancakes and lots of bread and hams and cheese. They were often out of pancakes and usually they didn't refill it while we were eating either so that's the only bad thing about the breakfast we found. But since there a lot of other stuff to choose from it's not the end of the world.

We tried the roof terrace one night and it was nice but could use some lamps. It was all dark out there only lit by surrounding buildings. We didn't try it during the daytime though.

The hotel room has a small minibar which you also can use as a small fridge to keep a small bottle of water cool, which is always nice. There's also an in-room safe but you have to sign for a key at the reception.

The rooms have regular keys that you hand in at the reception like old times. For security reasons it would feel better with a key card that not anyone can step up to reception and claim.

The location was good, but as many have pointed out Florence is small so most hotels are in a good location. We did not have any problems with noise at nights and slept well.
