t miss !

from A TripAdvisor Member
The best hotel in Firenze, in my opinion.
We stayed 12 days on a double room on the 2nd floor. Be sure to ask a room with river view, especially on the 4th floor where you also have a terrace.
The rooms are super clean, the bed is also great, large and soft. The bathroom is super, with 2 showers. The cleaning service works perfectly.
The hotel is situaded in a very good area, the best in my opinion, you can reach all the major objectives in few minutes, the Uffizi galleries are within 100 meters close.
The breakfast is also very good.

If you go to Firenze, i sincerely advise you to go there !!!

Yours, Buju

Loved this place!!!!!!

from fashion_teacher99
My husband and I stayed in this hotel this past June and had a wonderful time! The room was huge and I requested a view of the river and got it! I could not believe I could see the Ponte Vecchio from my room!

The front desk was hit or miss as far as how helpful they were, but for the most part, they were fine. We are pretty self sufficient travelers. The front desk did recommend some great restaurants, but lets face it, there are a ton of great restaruants in Florence! I would definately stay here again!

I recommend going accross the river to the Piazza Michael Angelo at sunset, it is the most beautiful view I have ever seen! It could not be captured no matter how many pictures I took!

Balestri was the Best

from churchmouse
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Balestri October 2005 and were pleasantly suprised by the size of our room and the friendliness of the staff. Our room was comfortable and most importantly very clean. It overlooked the Arno River and the view was quite nice. The only negative was the strret noise at night prohibited us from sleeping with our window open. The breakfast buffet was average, but always served with a smile and in a nice dining room. The hotels location was convenient to all attractions and we walked everywhere(we are in our 40's).
Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great Hotel

from emforster
We stayed for 6 nights in early October. The location is magnificent - the Uffizi is three minutes away. Ask for a room directly overlooking the Arno. Ours was spacious, with two balconies and a modern ultra-clean bathroom. Breakfast was fine and the staff are uniformly friendly and helpful. This is a thoroughly professional hotel fully reflecting its long tradition of service. Highly recommended. - V&J.

Great Location and value

from Curveball2
We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip. First two nights were in a room on the third floor, which was very modern with a large and clean bathroom. The street noise outside is almost totally eliminated by the excellent windows. Staff was courteous but not intrusive.
Breakfast had a large variety of items for Europe. Location is superb, one block from the Uffizi gallery and most rooms have a view of the Ponte Vecchio. Our room for our last night was on the first floor. It was not quite as nice as our third floor room, but still a large bathroom. Overall this hotel is a terrific value and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a moderate priced hotel in Florence.

Wonderful location

from lelanni
Stayed for 2 nights from 26/10/05 Wonderful big room and spotless.
Breakfast served until 11a.m. and it was an excellent breakfast. Water, juices, coffee, a huge selection of teas. Fruit salads,yogurts,cereals,criossants, various rolls cheese , hams jams etc all served by the courteous and quiet staff. Some re decorating being done in room on ground floor. Hope it is a bar as at the mo the bar is the breakfast room-
not quite the right atmosphere.
Also rooms for disabled available
Would use again ,good hotel, brill location

Great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Great location right near Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio. Large room and bathroom (especially for Italy). Nothing super fancy, pretty basic but they definitely try to "Americanize" it as much as possible. Very clean! We were very pleased with it. Would stay there again.

Lovely room with a great view

from dreampod21
This would have been one of the best hotels that I stayed in over my two month trip in Europe except for one thing - the water temperature in the shower varied from freezing cold to scalding hot from one minute to the next. I only stayed two nights so I don't know if it was an ongoing problem. Other than that, the room was comfortable and spacious, the view from the balcony was wonderful (I could see the Ponte Vecchio), the air-conditioning was a huge plus, the price was right and the location was the best (only a couple of minutes walk from the Uffizi)! Staff wasn't the greatest but with all the pluses this hotel offers, it wasn't a dealbreaker. I'm surprised this hotel wasn't booked up months in advance when I went.

nice view

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent one night here. Had a nice view of the Arno river. Quite surprised that the air conditioning worked so well. Seemed like the bathroom was redone and it had a nice tub. No problems with having enough hot water in the morning. Breakfast was very good. Large selection of fruit, breads, pastries, meat. Hotel staff very helpful. Close to everything. View of Ponte Veccio from window, one piazza away from Uffizi.

A great deal on a very good hotel

from Julianna22
I just returned from a visit to Florence and stayed at this fine hotel. It is very conveniently located, only a few blocks away from the Uffizi Gallery. We had a nice room overlooking the Arno River. The staff was very, very helpful and knowledgeable. The room rate was 80 euros a night, which included a buffet breakfast. Very importantly, the hotel is air conditioned.

Top Local Tips for Florence

best paninis ever I Fratellini on Via dei Cimatori near Piazza della Signoria and Duomo. Walk up service for paninis and wine. The prosciutto with Tuscan salsa verde is a real treat. Also the wild boar, chingiale.

A couple great restaurants in Florence Try Sasso di Dante - Simple, friendly, reasonable prices. On a courtyard facing the Duomo. Don't miss Trattoria Icche Ce Ce - Via Magalotti 11. Family run, you feel like a guest. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Book ahead or get there when they open - they were turning down folks 30 minutes after opening.

museum reservations If you want to go to the Uffizi or Acadameia, make a reservation by phone (055.294883) or you will be stuck in a LONG line. Climbing the duomo dome is definitely worth the 6 euros and 400+ steps because you get to view the fresoes and staind glass windows up close and also get a fantastic view of Florence. I would also reccommend walking up to Piazza Michaelangelo and San Minato across the Arno. Restaurants to try- La Maremma, Osteria Benci, and Mama Gina are all close to the hotel. Others closer to the Duomo/Santa Maria Novella are La Profeta and Sasso de Dante.
