“Great stay, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I chose this hotel based on TA reviews and stayed for 4 nights in a single room in September 2013. I had an excellent stay. I was greeted warmly upon arrival and the front desk staff were helpful with my questions. The location is excellent--just a few short blocks to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi and Perche No? gelato. The room was clean, with a mini-fridge and solid wifi. I especially liked the in-room guest book where past guests had written thank-you notes and tips on what to see in Florence. I would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

My family and I planned to spend three days and two nights in Tuscany, to visit Florence, Pisa and Siena.
We decided to book an hotel in Florence, to spend the first day and night there and then to move by car the day after to Pisa and back again to Florence for the second night.
The hotel is a bit tricky to reach by car, even using the GPS, due to the one way narrow roads busy with tourists and people walking, however once there the hotel has a very efficient valet parking system. Basically a person comes in about 15 minutes to get the car key at the reception and brings the car to a nearby parking and, whenever you may need to use the car, it is sufficient to ask the receptionist and in 15 minutes the car is ready at the hotel entrance. It costs Euro 26 per day inclusive of placing the car in "lista bianca" (white list) with the local traffic police to avoid summons when entering in the ZTL (Zona Traffico Limitato - Restricted Traffic Area).
The hotel is very quiet and clean and we had a great time there, with Fabrizio excellent host. It is very nice also the availability of few ipads at the reception for reading "paper free", in total respect of the environment, a selection of English, Italian and French newspapers.
The location is wondeful, just walking distance from several "must see" places in Florence.
The only thing I wish could be improved is the breakfast selection, a bit limited in my opinion.
Overall a very positive experience in this hotel which I would recommend to try when Florence.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Hotel Davanzati during our recent trip to Florence. The hotel location is perfect and the room was large and very clean with many unexpected amenities. The breakfast was excellent and we especially enjoyed the early evening Happy Hour. Best of all, Fabrizio and his staff were fantastic! They had great recommendations for dinners and sight-seeing and made us feel incredibly welcome every minute that we were there. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Florence.

We stayed here at the beginning and end of our first trip to Italy and were totally pleased in every way. The location is great with being walking distance to the airport drop-off and all the sights in Florence. The breakfast and afternoon happy hour are excellent for meeting other guests and sharing your experiences. We had several excellent recommendations for restaurants from the owner and he was just a total pleasure to deal with.

We enjoyed our one night stay at Hotel Davanzati. We missed breakfast so we can't comment on that but the room and hospitality was great. The location can't be beat. I loved being able to walk to everything. And yes, the David is a must see!

We loved this hotel. From the great welcome at the front desk, the delicious breakfast to the evening happy hour, everything was well done. The room was spacious and clean, with a good bathroom. Location was just steps away from 2 good restaurants where we had 2 good dinners and one lunch, and all the sights of Florence were about a 5 minute walk. We would stay here again if in Florence.

This hotel is centrally located, spotlessly clean and wonderfully managed. Hotel Davanzati's greatest asset is their owners and staff. Before we even arrived, they had booked tours and made dinner reservations (Natolino - the best) for us. Because we were in Florence during the bicycle race, the city was tied up at different times. Our hosts went out of their way to find us the best route out of the city and make arrangements for us to get to our car rental location. Our rooms were nicely furnished and the bathroom modern and very clean. Breakfast was lovely with a nice variety and the happy hour was a very pleasant experience, all to make us feel welcome.
