“Great Hospitality, Spacious Room, Amazing Amenities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel David for 3 days in May, and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel itself is very contemporary, and our room was huge. Hands down the amenities at Hotel David beat out anyone else - free 10 minutes of international phone calls per day, free wi-fi, breakfast. This is an amazing hotel, especially for the price.

The only down side is that it's a 15-20 minute walk to the city center. But it's well worth it, in our opinion. We highly recommend Hotel David if you are looking for a great value hotel with friendly staff.

We loved the ambiance of this hotel with its shady garden at the front. Gabriel goes out of his way to provide guests with a memorable experience of their stay. The happy hour with its generous assortment of nibbles and wine was an enjoyable way to end the day with the opportunity to swap stories with other travellers. A big plus was the onsite parking and the bus stop was just nearby if you did not want to walk into the heart of Florence, which was only 15 minutes away. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast offering was substantial. Great value

This is our second time here in last 6 years.The hotel is just as good as the last time , if not better. Nicely located near to attractions (small bus ride or 15 minute walk). The service, staff, owner are very helpful and very accomodationg. The wine & appertizer offering before supper is great. Close to very good restaurants(authentic Tuscan cuisine). I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms newly renovated.

Dear Repeter Guest,

I thank you for coming back and finding the same atmosphere after so much time and with a heavy renovation in the middle! It means we are not just a meteora but we start to be consistent and this is important sign of quality.
My best,

My adult son and I stayed in this hotel in June. It is everything a traveller would want and more. Great service, breakfest, lovely rooms and terrace. I can't recommend it enough.

We chose this hotel because it was highly rated on Trip Advisor. All of the great reviews were spot on. It was fantastic! Large rooms and bathroom. Just across the river from the middle of town so far enough away to be quiet but close enough to walk everywhere. The people who worked there were great, always quick with helpful information, restaurant recommendations or whatever. I could not say enough good things about this hotel. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

My wife and I stayed in the Hotel David for 2 nights in April, and we both agreed that the service really marks out this hotel. The reception staff were always friendly and helpful whenever we spoke to them, from the initial welcome, to recommending an excellent restaurant to offering us an extra umbrella when it was raining one day. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk to central Florence and the Ponte Vecchia along the banks of the River Arno; the hotel staff advised is which buses to get from the stop opposite the hotel if we preferred not to walk.

From the balconies of the rooms on the top floor, it is close enough to the city centre that you could see the dome of the cathedral across the rooftops. As other people have mentioned, the drinks from the minibar are free, something I've not seen in another hotel. It is mainly soft drinks, but this is still a nice touch. There is also a happy hour in the evening, with free snacks and wine. There are 2 internet terminals in the lobby area, both of which are free to use, and you can make 10 minutes of overseas phone calls from the telephone in reception. Parking, which was behind a gate secured overnight, was also free. Given that a room at Hotel David was significantly less than many other hotels in Florence, all these extras made it excellent value and really added to the feeling of being welcome.

The room itself was clean and had a nice bathroom, and there were plenty of options at the continental breakfast. We had no problems with noise and slept soundly on the beds. I would certainly recommend Hotel David to any friends or family planning to visit Florence.

Booked a double room which turned out to be an amazing room on the third floor with two small terraces. Everything about this place is fantastic! Book now if going to Florence. You will not regret it.
