The Hotel Balcony is what it is, a good value 2 star hotel in the heart of Florence. Its not flash but it is more than adequate. It's clean and tidy and has decent size comfortable rooms and it was surprisingly quiet considering the location. The location is excellent, half way between the station and the Dome, right on the edge of the old city. The continental breakfast was good, of a reasonable quality and there was plenty of it, my only fault there was that the coffee was horrible. The staff were friendly and very helpful with all our needs.
This was the best value accomodation that we could find in the centre of the city and we would go back without hesitation. The only reason to look elsewhere is if you are willing to pay 50-100+ more for somewhere posh.
