I reserved Hotel balcony and pleasantly surprised with their service. Pros: a) Walking distance from the station as well as all touristic sites b) Inexpensive c) Cleanliness d) Wonderful service and... More

This hotel is an absolute gem in the heart of Florence. The Father & Son who run the place were an absolute delight and could not do enough to help during our stay. Yes, the rooms are very basic but they are comfortable and clean. The reality is we spent all day out sightseeing, so just wanted somewhere to come... More

Many of the other recent reviews match our experience exactly. Realy wonderful hosts, including phoning round dentists when a crown came off a tooth helping to get a highly satisfactory repair done, without loss of too much time. Fantastic location within sight of and about 3 minutes walk from the Duomo, AND quiet as well! Beautifully clean, and with a... More

A bit dated and quite basic but excellent location. I got a very good rate and it was only for a night so it did not bother me. The couple who run the hotel are very friendly and hospitable. Breakfast was basic but sufficient for us.

The welcome is the best part of this hotel. It is like you are a guest of their house and they want to make you very comfortable. They succeeded. Very nice, really! Also they give you good tips for the attractions and restaurants. The hotel is cosy and comfortable in general. The rooms are clean and with enough furniture and... More

The hotel is in the perfect location. Close to the train station and even closer to the Duomo and the centre of town. Staff are very friendly and helpful. When we arrived at the hotel we were given a map and shown points of interest. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. Great breakfast. Would definitely stay there again if... More

Very cozy, clean, calm and quiet hotel for little money. Friendly staff, helped us in getting lost luggage, a special thank Guido. Large balcony, where in the evenings you can relax with a glass of fine Chianti. And fantastically convenient location. Alexey, Vera. Russia.

Literally down the road from the Duomo/city centre (you can see the Duomo from the balcony), Hotel Balcony is located perfectly as a home-base to explore the incredibly walkable city of Florence. As other travelers have noted, it is also a short walk to the train station, which is great if you have heavy luggage to carry or are travelling... More

The location of the hotel was fantastic. A short 10 min walk to the train station pulling luggage. The young man working the front desk was amazing and spoke very good English. Upon arrival since we were seniors and there was no elevator our bags were taken to our room which was very clean and comfortable.Upon checking out our bags... More
