Domenico found us at the train station and I am always cautious. I have to say Domenico was great and the Hotel was pleasant and clean and food good and close to the faclities. Its not a 5 star, but thats not the way to enjoy the country. Dean and Jannath

Balcony Hotel is an excellent choice for who wants to explore Firenze by foot. Close to the train station the hotel has a familiar environment and its owner Francesco is very friendly. He has treated us as we were someone from his family. The breakfast was very nice with fresh breads and the machine's capuccino was perfect. All of our...

Spent 4 nights here in early October at 95 Euros per night for a double (twin). Got very quiet standard European-sized room in back. Room and common areas immaculate. Big pluses were hot water and water pressure, choices at breakfast, friendliness and helpfulness of staff, location (between Santa Maria Novella and Duomo; 300 meters from bus and train stations).

Been meaning to write this review for some time. Selected the Balcony after much research on Trip Advisor (booked directly) and my wife & I spent 5 nights here in mid September 08. Even before our arrival, Francesco had been more than helpful in booking times for us at the Uffizi & Accadamia and from the time we checked in...

I've been meaning to write this review for a few months now. I attended a conference in Florence last April and needed a reasonably priced hotel in the centre of the city. I found Hotel Balcony on Tripadvisor; the reviews looked good so I decided to stay there. I wasn't disappointed. The hotel is in a great location, near the...

I'm a regular visitor to Firenze and have stayed in some pretty mediocre and overpriced hotels. So I've been looking for a place like this for a long time. A truly great little place to stay -- excellent location, clean and comfortable, and cheap as chips. The balcony is a terrific place to unwind and rest your feet and eat...

My mother and I stayed at the hotel Balcony for five nights and have had a great time there. The rooms are perfectly okay and clean, big enough for two persons and the beds and pillows were excellent. Although the stairwells smelled a bit smokey sometimes, the rooms didn't.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
