We spent two nights at this hotel and found the location to be within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. Guido was most helpful with any questions we had, he spoke good English! The only downfall to this hotel was no elevator. We had to walk up several stairs to our room but it was worth it. Of... More

No doubt that Hotel Balcony is small & is not that modern, but its location is so perfect! Close to the train station & to Duoma. The owners are very polite & always answer all the questions, help out if it is needed. However the breakfast is not that fulfilling. My husband and I liked it)

23.8.14 for 3 nights We found this hotel wandering the streets having booked ourselves somewhere not fit for purpose. The rates were excellent for a walk in and the accommodation brilliant. Even a huge outdoor communal balcony to sit out and have wine at night. This hotel made our Florence experience special at an affordable price.

The location is simply excellent, very close to the Duomo and in walkable distance from the train station, which was very convenient to us, since we were getting an early train to Venice the last morning (the day we arrived from southern Tuscany by car, we left the car at Hertz and also walked to the hotel, which was easy...

For starters it should be said that getting to Hotel Balcony is no easy task. The GPS could barely find it but it's also hidden down a street you aren't suppose to drive on. However, having said that, once you do find it, it's a wonderful place. When visiting a city like Florence you won't spend much time in your... More

The location of the hotel is great and central for seeing the sites, it has excellent restaurants near by. The room whist basic is comfortable completely as per the hotel's rating. The staff are excellent in English and are very helpful. There is a great large communal baloney located on the first floor with views of the Duomo.

Finding the hotel was tricky- do not drive in Florence unless you really really have to, but when you find it, you will be happy with your choice. Unless you're chillin' in the Tuscan country side, you will probably overpay your accommodation so don't expect wonders for 90eur or so. The hotel is rather small, so was the room. But... More

Loved the rooftop patio as a quiet refuge from the busy city below. Convenient 5 minute walk to train station and cathedral. A quiet, comfortable (air conditioned!), and friendly hotel. Always received a greeting and a smile upon leaving or returning. The breakfast buffet was very good.

A budget B&B at 5 minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella Station and all the attractions. We have stayed here for 2 nights and it was convenient to catch the early morning trains for Pisa/ Lucca. Room was adequate and clean. Breakfast was average. The owner Lady was very friendly and caring and We 've managed to learn few Italian... More
