This immaculate restored hotel has the feel of a local hotel. Our room was large, extremely large with two large windows facing the Arno River with a great king size bed with a crisp bedding and a duvet cover. The bathroom also was large and modern. Breakfast is included with a great variety of high quality bread , pastries, cheeses , meats , and a staff that will make you a fine doppio expresso macchiato —- well you get it.
The location is a five minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio , 189 meters to the Galileo museum , a 14 minute walk to the duomo and a 14 minute walk to Biboli Gardens
Staff is friendly and most helpful

Stayed in Deluxe river view room overlooking the Arno, very centrally located modern hotel within easy walking distance of all the sites, museum and attractions, very helpful staff and concierge all of whom spoke English well, strange bathroom setup that required you to climb into the shower (almost 3 feet tall) and not fully glass enclosed meaning water sprayed out on each end which proved somewhat annoying/wet, large breakfast area and daily lounge specials, staff provided good restaurant recommendations

Room tip: Definitely get a room with a view of the river if you want to enjoy the sights

The hotel is so conveniently located within a few minutes walk of many of the major sights. Easily situated along the Arno River, view of the Ponte Vecchio.
The rooms are lovely, clean and modern with a fantastic shower.
The breakfast was a step up from many of the other top hotels we stayed at and had
a very nice variety and great service.
We would stay here again.

Close to everything you read about in Florence, Balestri is a renovated, modern, boutique hotel that will make your stay dreamy. I loved the printed note informing the guests of the weather forecast, happenings in the hotel and what do see in the city on a daily basis! Strawberries and champagne upon arrival, view of the river and the bridges, I wished we stayed in Florence much longer!
Breakfast options can can be improved by catering to non-dairy, non-gluten audience, there is no gym, and terrace is really small, however, when you are in Florence, you don’t need much anyway.
Will be back!
