Since it is only for a few weeks, and since you have already indicated that potty pads on the balcony would be an acceptable alternative for you, why not just make a temporary potty patch on the balcony? That sounds so much less stressful for everyone involved, to me, and can be used while the dog is learning to feel more comfortable about the stairs.

Cover the potty pads with a square of sod = instant potty patch (you might want to put a tarp down underneath it all, to reduce long-term staining/damage). Change the potty pads regularly to keep it moderately clean, and clean the whole area really thoroughly after the visit is over. Or, if you can't find a sod patch, you could make a dirt box (take a large shallow tub, like an under-bed plastic storage bin. Drill some holes for drainage. Fill with some dirt, place on top of potty pads, change potty pads regularly). People build much more complex versions intended for long-term use, but in your case, three weeks worth of dog waste should be manageable.

Good luck!
