My WIfe booked a trip to Florence as a surprise birthday present, on arrival at Hotel David - a 15 minute taxi ride €10 from the Train station (we flew into Pisa and got the Train to Florence S.M.N) we were greeted by friendly staff who explained that our stay included a free soft drink and snack Mini bar, a welcome happy hour, free WiFi and even a free 10 minute call home
The room was spacious and had two balconies to relax on, and as an added surprise the hotel had put a bottle of fizzy into the room, we were welcomed by a hand written note thanking us for choosing Hotel David. Bed was very comfy and bathroom excellent with a good shower.
Usual hairdryer, safe etc in the room.
We were given a map and shown the best way into Florence which is a very nice walk down the river Arno and can be 10-20 minutes depending on where you decide to enter the main tourist areas.
After a long day (up at 4.45am) we decided to head back to the hotel for a relax and pop down to the happy hour at 18.30, what a great addition to our stay, had a couple of glasses of wine and some nibbles which the staff kept topped up until 20:00 (so lasted 1.5 hours!) afetr which we decided to relax on the balcony, we took some drinks up for the honesty bar where you just write down what you have taken, the prices are so cheap taht i would hate to think somebody would be less than honest!
Breakfast is continental with bacon, Eggs and again is kept well topped up, perfect to begin your day in Florence. After another day exploring we came back and asked for a local restaurant to eat that evening and were recommended a fantastic restaurant about 15 minutes walk away and in the opposite direction of the main tourist areas, very authentic with lots of locals eating there.
I would recommend this hotel to anybody staying in Florence, it has a lovely outdoor space, fiendly staff, clean and the perfect base to explore the beautiful Florence city.
Rooms 32 and 33 benefit from Balconies.
