“Best hotel experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has all the benefits of a great b & b (unbelievable service and many personal touches) . The outlook from the room is great. A little walk into town but the hotel is near some great authentic restaurants which have oodles of character. An oasis from busy city streets.

All the other excellent reviews should give you the idea, but this hotel is simply outstanding. From the moment you walk in, the service is incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave us amazing recommendations for dining that fit each night perfectly, and guided us to transportation throughout the city. The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, classic and unique with great views. Ours had a spacious balcony with a classic florentine view. The free mini bar adds to the hospitality, and if that's not enough, there is a happy hour every night with free snacks and cocktails. This is a place where you truly feel welcome and at home. There is nothing more we could possibly have wanted from our stay.

I’m glad we took the recommendations of so many others here on TA and booked our stay here. Although a bus go directly between the train station and hotel, we took a short taxi ride which was very inexpensive.

Upon checking in, we were given a warm welcome and information about the hotel and the area. Breakfast was quite good, but the room is small so it can’t handle many guests at one time. This wasn’t a problem though since you can wait in the comfortable lobby with a coffee and they will inform you when a table is available.

Since there was three of us traveling, we got a family room. The beds were VERY comfortable. Actually the most comfortable beds of our whole trip through Itay. The room was large and so was the bathroom. We especially liked the heated floors and heated towel rack.

The hotel is right outside of the center of Florence and only a 15 min walk to most things. If you want to take a sightseeing bus, one stops right outside of the hotel. There is also a reg bus stop and the hotel sells tickets at cost.

Already Trip Advisor's top hotel in Florence, the Hotel David hardly needs further recommendation but our four night stay here couldn't have been bettered. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and immaculately clean and ours on the third floor had a balcony and view over the rooftops to the hills. We appreciated the use of the internet, the free happy hour drinks and snacks and the coffee available whenever required. To round it off, the staff were delightful.

This was a great hotel. We had a room on the top floor overlooking the city (only a few have this great view). The staff was friendly. The room was big, very clean and really comfortable. It is about a 15 minute walk from the Uffizi but it was not too bad if you don't mind a walk, the area seemed safe to walk around even at night. would recommend this hotel to anyone that is ok with a bit of a walk for a great place.

We did a 12-day tour of Italy, staying in Rome, Orvieto, Florence and Venice. The Hotel David was by far our favorite hotel. Our room was exceptionally spacious and included a living room and outdoor balcony. Since I have allergies, I really appreciated the wood floors (rather than carpeting). Delicious cappucino in the morning and plentiful happy hour in the evening were a nice plus. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. Everyone speaks English. We walked to the center of town each morning and took the bus back at night. This is not a luxury hotel, but rather a well-run, quaint inn where you won't forget you are in Italy. If you are lucky enough to get a room here, you won't be disappointed.
