“Absolutely fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Excellent! Rooms were a good size, very clean and comfortable, excellent plumbing, good lighting, everything seemed to be with the guest in mind.

We walked into Florence every day, just 15 minutes to the Ponte Vecchio. There are restaurants within 5 minutes walk of the hotel. I found the hotel to be just perfect.

Just returned from our third trip to Florence and Hotel David. It's a family run hotel and Gabriele, Chiara and all the staff provide outstanding personal service and a willingness to assist in any way possible. We had a beautiful room with a terrace which had fabulous views of the city. The room was also sparkling clean.

We love the location as it's less touristy and there are some great restaurants close by.

We will happily return to Hotel David again and again and again..................

Hotel David has everything you require for a great stay in Florence. The staff are very friendly and do everything they can to make your stay memorable. The hotel is clean and the rooms comfortable and stylish in a traditional way. Our room was on the third floor and had fantastic views of the Duomo and the city from the balcony.
Do not be put off that it is not situated in the centre, it is in quiet postion and it is a nice 15/20 min walk along the river to Ponte Vecchio bridge or you can take a regular bus from outside. Breakfast is good with a choice of cooked eggs and bacon, ceral and cold meats/cheese. Early evening there is a happy hour with complimentary drinks and nibbles.
Easy to see why this No1 hotel on Trip Advisor.

Room Tip: Room 30 has a great view of the Duomo.

Simply a superb hotel. Fabulous staff, comfortable rooms and lovely food. Ok, so its not right in the centre of Florence, but its an incredible lovely 20ish minute walk along the Arno to the Ponte Vecchio. Its near some very good restaurants, which the hotel staff will point out to you. If you're wanting a city break in Firenze, stay here - you won't be disappointed.

Everything about our stay here was perfect, huge clean and attractive rooms, bathroom and balcony, great breakfast, wonderful helpful and friendly staff. I liked the location being on the other side of the river away from the hustle and bustle of the main city and it was easy to get the bus back and forth with regular mini-buses very close to the hotel. We will definitely be back soon.

Nice to see that once again our location is considered an advantage to many more Guests who like to be a little outside the downtown area but close enough to walk there.

Hotel David is a bit off the beaten track, but still a very walk able distance from the city center (about 15 minutes). The rooms are impeccably clean, with updated bathrooms, and the staff are incredibly friendly. Mornings offered a full American breakfast with hot eggs and bacon -- a rare find in most of the hotels in which we stayed in Northern Italy. And of course, there was the nightly happy hour with complimentary appetizers and cocktails. The one downfall was that there were not a lot of restaurants from which to choose that were within walking distance at night, and it would have been nice to have been a little closer to town. However, the rates were very reasonable, and it really was a lovely jewel of a hotel with beautiful views of Florence from the upper stories.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a terrace. The view from our terrace was so peaceful.

Great base for a stay in Florence! Very friendly people, good and prompt service, clean rooms, nice (basic) breakfast, free sundowner with yummy snakes from the kitchen. Town center is in walking distance, but there is also a bus leaving in front of the hotel. For Florence not very noisy (especially rooms towards the back). Secure parking, free wifi, internet pc available in the lobby. Well-equipped, reasonably prices honesty bar, small refrigerator in the room.
We chose the hotel because of the good Tripadvisor feedback and were not disappointed.
