This is a great old hotel in downtown Ybor City - within walking distance of the old city charms. We visited Ybor City to enjoy the history of the town and were so happy to stay at the Don Vicente, with it's lovely decor and beautifully kept rooms/facilities. Our room was comfortable and had a balcony overlooking the street. Don't... More

It's great to see you enjoyed your stay, Judi -- it sounds like you got a chance to explore Ybor City and really get a sense of the area. Good tip about the balcony, by the way -- if you ask us, there's really no better view in the city! All the best, Tessa Shiver (Owner) More

Do not hesitate to stay there! I usually like modern furniture and home styling, but it is impossible not to marvel at the stunning lobby and rooms (ours: 302, with a balcony on the street). It makes you feel like a 19th century lady. And the people at the front desk are just super sweet and available. Breakfast is sugary... More

Marina, I'm so happy to see that we could treat you to a Victorian holiday! It sounds like the staff were able to take great care of you, which is exactly what I like to hear. Hope we'll be seeing more of you the next time you're in Florida! All the best, Tessa Shiver (Owner) More

As a frequent traveler I seek good value with as much exposure to the area's cultural history as time will allow. Working in Tampa one week afforded me such an opportunity. The Don Vicente Inn was saved from demolition by the Shiver Family, who now manage this quaint, historic hotel.

Russell, I'm so happy that you were able to join us for a business trip -- it sounds like the backdrop of the hotel was a welcome change to your work week! Hopefully you'll get a chance to come see us again, either for business or on vacation. Until next time, Tessa Shiver (Owner) More

Offered restrooms to the general public for we were there in the hot 92 degree sun waiting for the sunsation tour that evening. Basement was the old morgue. Must go see basement. A... More

I'm so happy to hear you were pleasantly surprised by the hotel! There's nothing better on vacation than to come back to a beautiful room, and it's great that we could make that come true for you. As far as the basement goes -- it sounds like it didn't spook you too much! Can't wait to see you on your... More

I wanted to stay in a hotel that was not a chain like Marriott, Sheraton, etc., and this definitely did not disappoint us! My mom (who was with me) likes old historical buildings that are refurnished, and this building was quite a sight. When you walk in, there are photos of what it looked like beforehand. It took a million... More

Very classy, historical, beautiful, grand yet charming hotel. Converted building owned by Mr. Ybor which this area of town is called due to Mr. Ybor's large tobacco business that used to exist in this downtown part of Tampa called "Ybor City". My room was a classic! A King sized bed with enormous, grand and very attractive glass chandelier above the... More

We stayed in the beautiful hospitality suite. The hardwood floors were stunning as well as the period furnishings. We had French doors leading out to the balcony. The room was clean and had all your modern amenities. I loved when we checked in I had to sign that I wouldn't take the chandelier, which would have looked amazing in our... More

We stayed for our anniversary and loved it. Our room even had a mini iron balcony . Most rooms have 12 foot ceilings ours had a king size bed and hardwood floors. The room was larger than most chain hotel rooms and staff friendly.

Gave us instructions on what to see and do in Ybor. The room was clean and nice. My only complaints were 1. very hard uncomfortable and cheap bed. 2. Paper thin walls. We had very rude, neighbors...

Well, well. I've been to the Don Vicente a number of times, for an event or a few drinks, and stayed here twice now over the past 3 years. The location is very convenient to walk all of ybor city, like 20 city blocks worth of walking. Awesome restaurants, museums, flower and gift shops, and many. many clubs for dancing...anything...
