We liked that the location was great - close to the centre and overlooking the river Arno. The breakfast room was beautiful - lots of mirrors everywhere! And the breakfast choice was great....as was the selection of coffee.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Hotel Balestri was an excellent choice for location and price. All staff were exceptional and the hotel was lovely. It was very clean and offered breakfast daily. Room was a tad small for two people that were not a couple. But well appointed and welcoming. Daily room service with fresh linens and a daily newsletter with ideas for your adventure. I highly recommend this hotel. The location was perfect a quick walk to all points of interest and easy to find since it is located on the Arno.
