Hotel David is one of those special hotels I didn't think existed anymore- it's a place where you feel the warmth of being in your own home. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed. Gabrielle had our bags in our rooms before we even got to them, and in our room we were supplied with a free minibar and snacks. Happy hour has the obvious benefit of being free but it is so much more. Gabrielle has created a place of warmth where at happy hour people from all over the world meet, chat and relax in his lounge room. My son and husband are coeliac so require gluten-free food. This was catered for wonderfully at breakfast and happy hour. They both felt absolutely spoilt (in complete contrast to their usual experience of neglect). I just cannot recommend this wonderful hotel enough! We loved our time in Florence and Hotel David was a major contributor to that.

We visited a lot of hotels on our European vacation, but this one had to have been one of the best for a couple of reasons. First and foremost was the food. Not only was the breakfast amazing, but each night included a free happy hour with h'orderves and wine. Since we ate in the hotel, it freed us up to spend our food budget on more desserts and snacks out in the city. Additionally, the room itself was amazingly spacious and well decorated. We also enjoyed the location, which was in a neighborhood and not directly downtown with the rest of the hustle and bustle. And finally, the staff was first class and made us feel like family.

The Hotel David is a jewel. It is located a bit off the hustle and bustle of Florence, a pleasant walk from the Ponte Vecchio along the Arno. Owner Gabriele and the staff could not be any friendlier or gracious. Our room was clean, neat and offered a great view of Florence. A minibar in the room is supplied with (ready? ) FREE refreshments! Happy Hour ( with lovely homemade hot hor d'oeuvres) in the lobby gave us a great chance to mingle and talk with fellow travelers and the 9:30 nightcap offerings were always appreciated . The included breakfast was substantial and served in a very nice sunny room. The weather was too cool to enjoy the outdoor terrace but it looked like a great warm weather spot to have breakfast or a drink. We could not have been happier with our stay.

We started our first trip to Italy with two nights in the hotel David. The decor was beautiful. The view from both of our balconies was excellent. One of downtown florence and the other of the hills surrounding florence. The staff was amazing and all spoke English making it easy to get around. They have a great happy hour serving wonderful snacks and wine. As a bonus you can use their phone to call home for 10 minutes each day. Every morning a great breakfast is served to start the day.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor. The views were great and they have a lift

We stayed 4 nights in Florence at the Hotel David. Amazing service, great breakfast and well appointed rooms. The staff was incredibly helpful and available at all times. Since Florence is small and a very walkable city, the away from downtown location was a plus and proved to be a real benefit as we were able to view the annual city marathon by the river. A great experience.
