Very nice hotel for the price. Situated right downtown Florence which make it very convenient to travel within the city. Very close to train station. Room is quite small, like everywhere else in Italy!...not a big deal.
Very nice terrace on the roof. AC worked well but the fact that we have to leave the card in the room to have AC was a big disappointment. Everything else was pretty nice.
Wifi worked well (free of charge) and room was very clean.
Would recommend.

The location of this hotel is brilliant. The room was basic, but clean and everything we needed. The breakfast had a reasonable amount of choice and was a typical standard for a low-cost hotel. Machine coffee...in Italy? Maybe up the game there.

Staff were helpful and friendly.

Pros:
Location is awesome
Close to the main railway station yet in a quaint street. Basically best of both worlds.

The staff is really sweet and friendly :)

Cons:
Not a big deal but the room was quite small, as mentioned on booking.com

Definitely recommended

We stayed in Hotel Balcony for 3 nights during our stay in Florence. It is in a wonderful historic Florence building. The location can not be beat. Just a few blocks away from the Duomo, a 10 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio and a 5 minute walk to the Galleria. We walked 5 minutes from the train station, and the hotel was very easy to find. The breakfast is included and was good. They had yogurt, danish, rolls, nutella, coffee, juice, and a selection of meat and cheeses. The hotel does not have an elevator, but the staircases are short. We stayed on the very top floor and it was an easy climb up stairs. They do have air conditioning. The room we stayed in was small, but we liked being in a real Italian building. The bathroom was very nice and modern. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again, especially with the price and location of the hotel.

My family and I stayed at The Balcony in 2015. The hotel is located very close to the Duomo and gives a wonderful view of the Duomo from its balcony. Hence, the name. :) The room was very neat and clean. The hotel is managed very well by the owners. We had an early morning train to catch to visit Pisa and Cinque Terre. The owners were kind enough to pack our breakfast despite us leaving at 5.30 AM. They also took the trouble of finding out what we like and ensured that they packed that for our breakfast in good quantities. They are also a very jolly couple who love to chat with their guests. We had a thoroughly wonderful time during our stay there. We even have plans of going back to Florence. When we do, this is the place we are going to stay. Looking forward to it.
