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 in or out of Florence with early or late trains to catch. Upon our arrival, Guido gave us a map, talking us through the main sights and places to visit. (all in walking distance) He helped us carry our luggage up and showed us to our room. The room itself (a triple room) was a good size (larger than some rooms we'd stayed in during our trip) and bedroom/bathroom were both clean. The room was modest but perfectly comfortable for the three of us. Breakfast was fine, not spectacular but perfectly adequate. Staff were very nice and accommodating. When we'd come and go from the hotel we'd always receive a very friendly Ciao from the reception desk. Would recommend, had a very positive experience staying here and I imagine the balcony would be very nice in Summer.
