"My clients contacted me upon their return home and raved about the Hotel Balestri. I have copied the email - 'Hotel Balestri in Florence couldn’t have been more welcoming or better located. We had a lovely room on the 5th floor with an excellent view and easy access to the roof-top garden, which we enjoyed. Thank you so much for arranging it.' - Thank you so much for the obvious upgrades and special attention given to my clients. I am deeply appreciative." E.D. Valerie Wilson Travel and Clients
