Reviewed 21 April 2013

Florence was packed, so I had to stay somewhere new - a delightful hotel at a reasonable price in an historic palace. Excellent location in via del Giglio - peaceful, but only a step from the station and the church of San Lorenzo, and its market; around the corner from Palazzo Medici and just a few yards from the Duomo and Baptistery at the heart of Florence.
The owners were absolutely charming. They gave me a warm welcome and were available for any assistance, offering advice and the odd coffee. I felt at home, but with my privacy. My room was also perfect for me. Small, overlooking the internal courtyard, with a nice little shower room and a useful desk. Breakfast was fine, and better than is often offered in family-run hotels here.
The only issue was that getting the internet and texting was not reliable, so as I was here for work, it was frustrating at times when it I couldn't get a signal. Otherwise this was a wonderful place to stay and now my favourite in Florence.

Excellent location--very near train station, located on a quiet back street. You can walk to absolutely everything. The proprietors Mario and Sr. Rela make you feel like you are guests in their home. Mario speaks excellent english and will give you wonderful advice for restaurants and how to get the best deals on attractions and shopping. Unique property and history of the building. Fell asleep gazing at the frescoes and felt transported back to another time, just delightful. Only advice to hotel would be to upgrade the mattresses, otherwise, it is perfect.

Room Tip: We had a large room with a double bed plus two singles/daybeds. Extremely high ceilings with origin...

I booked this little hotel for the frescoes and was not disappointed! We arrived by train and it was very close to the station on a little side street. Thanks to other reviews I knew to just look for the address and buzzer to be let in. The owner was courtly and helpful and our room for 3 of us was huge with 20 feet ceilings and the promised frescoes. Despite the age of the building our bathroom was large and modern and the tub was welcoming after our climb to the Piazzale Michaelangelo. More of a B & B than hotel, the European style breakfast was served in the reception/sitting area with the owner and his son (who looks like a young Dylan McDermott) manning the Cappuccino machine. We enjoyed our 3 night stay here very much!

My husband and I and 2 friends all had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Burchianti in Florence . What a wonderful find. Not only were the rooms breathtakingly beautiful, with frescos on the ceilings and walls, but the staff were the nicest people we met in Florence. We just wanted to hang out and talk to them our whole time there! Mario and his son took such good care of our party, giving great local recommendations, arranging tickets for us to the Vatican museum in Rome for our following adventures after leaving Florence (just after the Pope resigned, which was no easy feat) and simply being very pleasant, helpful, and going out of their way to make us feel at home in their hotel. We will definitely be back to visit both Florence and Burchianti and we will make sure all of our friends do so as well.

Our stay at Hotel Burchianti was great! They made us feel like family. Their suggestions made our trip more enjoyable. We will definitely stay there again upon returning to Florence. The accommodations were comfortable and the frescoes amazing.We were especially pleased with the location which made everything close at hand. There's a buzzer to get in that is located right outside the building. The elevator will take you up to reception.

Room Tip: Loved our large room with frescoes located a few steps away from the breakfast room.
