Florence 3 nights low season from £648 per person

Sister hotel to the Santa Maria Novella and the L’Orologio, the Balestri reopened in January 2015 following a complete renovation. It is located in the heart of the Santa Croce district,400 metres from the Ponte Vecchio and close to the Uffizi Gallery.

The views from the rooms at the front are exceptional, particularly at night, and take in the river, Piazzale Michelangelo and the hills of San Leonardo. The 50 bedrooms are decorated in a simple contemporary style with dark oak floors and comfortable beds – rooms on the 5th floor are decorated in a more glamorous style and share a roof terrace with wonderful city views. Our prices are based on rooms with Arno views. An excellent breakfast is served in a ground floor room with tall, arched windows overlooking the river.
