Will stay here again.
Fantastic accommodation in a central location beside the River. Walk everywhere. Friendly, helpful staff. Buffet breakfast in lovely dining area. This was our second time staying here. Bus from Florence to Siena was faster and cheaper than train.

They gave us complementary champagne and clean the room every day. Truly friendly staff. Love the location of the hotel it was near many of the things I wanted to see.

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
Beautiful hotel but spoilt slightly by the Goofy figurines everywhere. Room was lovely, clean with a great view of the river. Breakfast however was very poor. Surprised no toast maker??? Despite breakfast being included in our stay, we chose to not bother for the 2nd day.

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.

Exceptional 10.0
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.
