This was my second visit and even better than before. My room was spacious and the bed extremely comfortable. The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. I very much enjoy the happy hour as a way to relax and reflect on my sightseeing day before going out again for dinner. The location is excellent and while there is always some... More

Very friendly hotel, close to the heart of Florence. Staff excellent and cooperative, room pleasant and very clean. Food service very, very pleasant and great for having both a good start and a pick-me-up in the early evening. Met some nice people at the hotel, which is encouraged in many ways by the hotel staff. Will definitely return next time... More

This hotel choice was guided by TripAdvisor and we were very happy with the advice. Our room was amazing - a bedroom, sitting room with sofa and desk and a patio. The service was great - the Happy Hour was very nice. They were helpful when we were trying to get tickets to the Uffizi by telling us to get... More

We stayed here based on a recommendation from relatives (and confirmed by these Tripadvisor reviews) and all was/is as advertised! Very warm welcome from the staff/family...very knowledgable about the area and helpful with everything, yet they did not hover or push any particular idea too much. Warm and inviting room, plenty of space. We loved the location. We will definitely... More

This was my 3rd time staying at the Davanzati ('05, '08) and it's always a great experience. The staff is extremely helpful; they make all their guests (including Americans!) feel very comfortable; they give excellent recommendations for dinners & tours; and the room is always lovely. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy staying here. The location is... More

This is a family run hotel that treats you like friends. From the minute we arrived (yes, up a lot of stairs) we were treated like long friends. The people were great, especially Leonardo, Tomasso, & Fabrizio (sp?). It was great to talk with them and other guests at Happy Hour. Breakfast was tasty and enough variety. Theirs recommendations (restaurants... More

The Hotel is extremely well located. Its practically 5 minutes walking distance from the Uffizi and 20 mins from the accademia. The star of the place is its staff, they are extremely helpful and payed personalized attention to all our requests. The happy hour was good, though not extra ordinary. Breakfast spread was good, again not over the top. Our... More

This is a special hotel. Wonderful location, charming building (but be prepared to walk up two flights of stairs to get there - though staff will carry your baggage for you) and a staff that genuinely want to get to know you. Happy hour actually works as guests catch the spirit of the hotel and engage with one another. Highly... More

The Hotel Davanzati is well-located just minutes from the train station. Our room was small but beautifully appointed. It was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was very good and the "happy hour" was much appreciated! The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. The Hotel was simply charming!

Not the best hotel in the world, the best run hotel in the world. Truly impressive. Happy hour, location awesome. Facilities good. Stairs, but it didn't bother us at all. Good recommendations too. No downside whatsoever.
