The staff was always extremely helpful and fluent in several languages; the location on the Arno River just steps from the Ponte Vecchio was unbeatable; and the wonderful complimentary breakfast buffet every morning started my days off well. I can't wait to go back!
Lovely hotel, great location, very helpful staff, great breakfast
room small by US standards, probably average for European hotels
Hotel Balestri is conveniently located, very close to Uffizi Galleries, Ponte Vecchie, Museo Galileo, and many other attractions. It was very clean and the front desk staff were very helpful and attentive.
The hotel doesn't have a bar, per se, but will serve customers from a limited alcohol menu.
The hotel's location is excellent. You can walk to most of the popular tourist attractions. The breakfast was good and the breakfast room was pleasant.
The only thing unpleasant, was the room freshner smell. Opening the windows helped temporarily.
Staff were excellent - helpful, and charming. Location was superb, right next to the Uffizi gallery, and on the banks of the river. I liked the charm of the foyer area and the no-nonsense but well appointed facilites. I would definitely use the hotel again.
A little more attention to lighting in the room (bulb not replaced, for example), plus non-slip shower flooring would reassure.
The hotel is lovely, large, well appointed rooms with a nice bathroom. The location is great, right on the Arno. It is a great value, and more of a 4 star than a 3 star hotel. Highly recommended.
It would be nice if they included boiled eggs with breakfast rather than charging for them.
the staff was very helpful and pleasant and very attentive to your requests. Breakfast was very good. European style, but very good. We had a room with a river view and the view was beautiful. The room was quiet for sleeping and yet just a short distance away, there was much activity, nice restaurants and in the evening, near the Uffici and the Piazza Senioria (not sure of spelling) there was always a young musician playing music. It was very romantic.
No, my experience was very positive.
The view from the room balcony over the river was breath-taking. Great location for site seeing.
Lovely hotel with helpful staff, catered to a more mature clientile
