Exceptional 10.0
Central location, wonderful staff
Loved our stay at Hotel Balestri, just booked to return again! Central location and is easy walking distance to everything. Room and service perfect. Staff helpful and speak English well. Breakfast adequate.

Poor 2.0
With the virus situation, the hotel insisted not to refund cancellation. Some may disagree they were merely following their rule and agreement made before payment was made. Some may argue in case of virus, an exception must have been made. You would know by now what I think. This review is merely the reflection of the virus situation. Nothing more, nothing less.

Very good 8.0
Great. But ditch Goofy.
Fabulous location by the Arno, a couple of minutes walk from the Uffizi and Ponte de Vecchio. Staff were very helpful and pleasant, especially at breakfast. Breakfast included bacon and eggs and many different cold options (including Prosecco!). Room was a decent size with incredibly comfy bed. Large walk in shower was very luxurious. Only 2 niggles for us- the wardrobe could only take 5 items of clothing and there was no drawer space, and for some very odd reason, there are dozens of Disney Goofy models all over the ground floor which make it look like a cheap theme hotel and ruin the ambience.
