Completely agree with all of the positive reviews. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring Florence. Every site can be reached within a 15 minute walk. And most a lot closer. This is the friendliest and warmest hotel I've ever visited. From the start Fabrizio made us feel totally at home and the staff couldn't have been more helpful with... More

We stayed here for five days and covered all of Florence. The location is great, as it is centrally located. Fabrizio and staff were absolutely terrific. Very friendly and helpful. They had great restaurant recommendations, touring assistance and helped us get reservations for museums. The room was large, clean and well appointed. The breakfast was very good. And the made...

We recently experienced 3 wonderful nights at the Hotel Davanzati. Fabrizio and his entire family could not be kinder and more attentive to every need. Riccardo took care of us at check-in and throughout most of the stay, making great restaurant recommendations and answering all our questions. The hotel is very clean, comfortable, and cozy. The breakfast room is warm,... More

We visited the Davanzati in 2011 after reading Trip Advisor's reviews and had a fabulous time. Returning this April with friends we found just the same level of professionalism and total dedication to the guests needs. As before, nothing was too much trouble for the team there and this meant our holiday was perfect! They even arranged wall to wall... More

We highly recommend Hotel Davanzati for anyone traveling to Florence. Everything was perfect - the incredible hospitality (prior to our trip, while we were in Florence and even after we left), the rooms (could not have been a better room layout for our family of four including our 14 year-old son and 12 year-old daughter), the delicious breakfast, the happy...

This is an awesome little family run hotel. THe Palace next door was built and belonged to the Davanzati family, and the courtyard below our rooms is named the Piazza dei Davanzati. It's a great little hotel, but not for weak knees.... You don't have to carry luggage, but you must walk up 26 stone steps to get to the... More

My husband and I stayed here over Easter weekend 2015. This was the fourth hotel we'd visited during this trip to Italy, so we have others to compare it with. Location: Can't be beat. You're within walking distance of all the sights. Staff: Great. They obviously know their stuff. They can get you reservations, give advice on things to do,... More

Family of 3, we stayed for 4 days/3 nights at the end of March. The wonderful folks, Fabrizio and family, communicated and coordinated much via email in advance and our various museum reservations were waiting when we arrived.They were so helpful (starting with our luggage up the steps) and personable throughout our stay it felt like staying with family.

Amazing hotel staff, great room, great location, breakfast was awesome. Totally comfortable and incredible in every way. Had to check out very late while my travel plans changed, Fabrizio and staff made me feel very comfortable and welcome, didn't rush me at all. Very attentive, very clean, very comfortable. I don't think I'll ever stay anywhere else in Florence again.... More

My wife, three daughters (14, 13 and 11) and I stayed at the Hotel Davanzati during our Spring Break vacation. The location is ideal, a block up from the river and easy walking distance to the Duomo, Uffizi, Pitti Palace, et al., many restaurants, and more gelato shops than you get to in a week (although we tried hard).
