Hotel Balestri, Florence
Surprisingly Good
Very nice hotel with super friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were great (we came back for a second night as we enjoyed the first visit very much. A big thanks to Vania at the reception and bellboy Florin but all of the staff deserves credit. Easy to recommend and this is our "home" in Florence when we return

Very Good8.0
A hotel like this should provide free bottled water. When I called for water the bartender had an attitude and was quite rude. Charging 5 euro for a bottle of water is ridiculous.

A real gem.
Excellent hotel for the price. Perfect location, spotless, contemporary and comfortable. Staff was attentive, but not overly so. My room overlooked the Arno River with the Ponte Vecchio within view. Breakfast had plenty of fresh selections. Could easily walk to all the sights. Restaurants right outside the hotel. Would definitely stay here again and look forward to returning.

Fabulous Hotel in the Heart of the Action
The hotel staff was amazing - helpful and accommodating to the maximum. They truly went out of their way in every regard. The hotel itself is a pleasant blend of classic and modern, with rooms that are well-appointed and very modern and functional bathrooms. My only minor criticism would be that the room that we had was quite "compact" - even in comparison to others that we've stayed in while in Europe. The "desk" was only 10" in width (my 13-inch laptop hung off the edge) and was not very wide. Although there were 2.5 small "closets" - the availability of drawer space was minimal. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the room. The queen-sized bed was very comfortable, and the nightly turn-down service was much appreciated, making the stay quite "luxurious." Will definitely stay here again when we return.
