The hotel is a lovely older property with a small number of rooms, so the feeling is that of a boutique hotel rather than a huge anonymous chain. It's quiet, and very well located for visiting the Uffizi and the Duomo, or for a quick stroll across the Ponte Vecchio. And the buffet style breakfast is plentiful and with lots of options. In addition the staff was pleasant, helpful with information or restaurant bookings, and we were relieved that they all spoke English so well (because our Italian is deplorable to nonexistent). Molto grazie for that!

Lovely room with balcony overlooking river.
Breakfast could be improved. It was unusual to be asked to pay extra to have eggs fried rather than scrambled! No toaster. Always had to remember to ask for milk whenever ordering tea.

Perfect location and an outstanding view. Breakfast was beautiful and a good variety. The hotel is elegant and has a touch of whimsy to keep it real. Excellent staff and supper comfy rooms. We will return.

Everything exceeded my expectations; I’ve previously stayed at the Balestri and enjoyed every time. This time I and my partner stayed in one of the fifth floor suites - 503 with the river view. When I visit Florence again, I want the same room!
I would have wanted more glasses, for example, and more towels.

Great ratio quality/price, good breakfast, friendly staff, great location by the water (ask or book a river view room), very nice interior design
Private parking offered by hotel at huge price 48€/day, noise outside all day (if you have room towards Piazza Mentana) and from the hall (vacuum cleaning early in the morning and in the afternoon, doors closing making big noise)

The bedroom offered a superb view across the Arno and along the river to the Ponte Vecchio. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and sparkling. The service was impeccable.
