The Balestri is a 4-star boutique hotel with a great atmosphere overlooking the River Arno. In the Santa Croce area, it is but a short walk from the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery.
Having been refurbished, the building retains all the architectural charm of its period. The communal areas of the hotel have an elegant and nostalgic mood with Art Deco-style furniture, large windows, vaulted ceilings, large mirrors and marble flooring. Drinks and light snacks are served in the bar area with comfortable seating.
Thanks to the recent restyling, the 50 rooms over five floors are spacious and elegantly furnished, having received great attention to detail and every kind of comfort. Many offer privileged views of Florence, with the most exclusive having romantic private terraces overlooking the river.
From the rooftop terrace, you can admire the Cathedral, Giotto’s Bell Tower and Palazzo Vecchio.
The Hotel Balestri is the ideal destination for lovers of tradition who want to immerse themselves in the most classic and authentic Florence.
