          The staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. They let you leave your bags there after checkout and offer breakfast and dinner. The hotel is near the train station and close to all of the major sites.

          Nice stay in Hotel Balcony with a very good staff. The Hotel is clean and very well located, five minutes from Santa Maria Novella train station and five minute ago from the Duomo. If I come back to Firenze, it'll probably be there.

          How exactly do we drive to the hotel? I've seen that people have done it and that there is valet parking. I just know that driving in the area isn't ideal and can be very difficult, and it looks like it's in a ZTL area. We'll be coming from Milan Airport on a Saturday and will need the car unfortunately (covering a lot of land in a week). Thanks!
