“My new favorite hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

My family and I just got home from our trip to Florence and I can't say enough good things about the Hotel Davanzati. It is a charming hotel with a perfect location. The rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious (and even had a towel warmer in the bathroom!). The service was exceptional and Fabrizio went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and at home (he even hosted a dinner on Christmas for all guests at the hotel). If all of that wasn't enough, the hotel had a wonderful happy hour each night and complimentary breakfast in the morning. I can't wait to plan our next trip back to Florence and the Hotel Davanzati.

Room Tip: rooms looking out onto the courtyard are quieter than those looking out onto the street.

We stayed here for the first time in Nov. 2011 and liked it so much we came back in 2013! The hotel is conveniently located to all the sites in Florence. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and very clean. Fabrizio, Tommaso and all the staff there make you feel so very welcome. We especially loved visiting with them at breakfast and in the evening during their happy hour! They have iPads and many books available for their guests and always eager and able to help. We can't wait till we can come again! Wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Friendly staff, convenient location, relatively large rooms, clean. Complimentary aperitif nightly, and complimentary 1st breakfast. You do have to walk up 26 steps from street to reach their elevator or can walk another shirt flight to lobby. They will help with your bags from the street if you let them know you've arrived. They are helpful with tickets, reservations, anything you may need. Very nice all around.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, right from the moment we booked online, all communication was prompt and personal. Fabrizio and Tommaso helped us sort out our travel arangements and made excellent recommendations for eating out. Room was pretty small with no view, but clean and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but again fresh and a good selection of produce. A particularly nice touch is the "happy hour" every day from 6.30-7.30pm when free Chianti or Proseco is served with nibbles to guests, what a great way to start the evening! Located an easy walk from the station and even closer to the divine shopping! An unforgettable trip, thank you.

We traveled to Florence in November to visit my daughter who was studying there for the semester. All the reviews were spot on!. One incredible thing that no one seems to mention is that the hotel is completely nonsmoking which is very important to us. All hotels in Italy are required to have nonsmoking public areas, and many designate nonsmoking rooms, but these often are still on floors that allow smoking or may only have been sprayed with Fabreze before you arrive! We booked the Westin as a backup, but the owners at Davanzati were so friendly, helpful and inviting, the hotel is so charming with so many warm touches, and our room was so delightful (towel warmers and heated bathroom floor!) and quiet that we asked if we could come back for two more nights at the end of our trip and canceled our Westin reservation! We didn't regret it one bit! Don't let the stairs scare you! They will help you with all your bags and anything else you might need. I have a close friend who lives in Rome and she promises to recommend this hotel to all her visitors when the come to Florence. Florence is also very expensive, but the price for our room were exceptional given the level of quality and service we received.

Room Tip: Our triple room was large, charming and had a wonderful bathroom and shower. I think it was room 305...

This is a family owned hotel/B&B. You get to know the whole family (they all work there). They are warm and hospitable and will book anywhere you want to go. They even have their own driver. One day a beautiful Mercedes SUV took us and another couple for a day in Tuscany, which was the highlight of our trip. The rooms are cozy and they have a little happy hour every night so all the guests can relax and socialize. We made many friends there and everyone speaks perfect English! Would absolutely stay here again. Loved it!

Room Tip: Tell them you're on your honeymoon!

I have already planned my 4th visit to beautiful Florence and, of course, will stay at the wonderful Davanzati Hotel. This time I will be bringing my grand niece--who has been with me on the previous 3 trips--as well as my niece and her daughter so they, too, can enjoy all Florence and Davanzati have to offer. I look forward to seeing Fabrizio and Tommaso again next year in early May. I know we won't be disappointed. Ciao
