We had a great time staying here again after having visited the Hotel David once before six years ago. There are not enough adjectives to describe what a lovely experience it is to stay at the Hotel David. First, they went above & beyond re-scheduling our stay after numerous changes because of covid, etc. They were never phased & provided support at every turn. Everything they do is top notch: all of their friendly & helpful staff were there to serve us as guests no matter what we asked of them & made our stay even more pleasant; the breakfast & happy hour they provide are a treat to enjoy; and the quiet location is a relaxing retreat from all of the touring & walking. They make you feel so welcome! (although at times I'm sure we seemed like some crazy relatives who showed up & didn't have their act together? Lol) Even during these times of mask wearing & social distancing, etc., they somehow made everything work safely. *Your understanding & gentle reminders to wear our masks was appreciated & we continue to work on doing better :) Hotel David -- please never change your oasis of calm & comfort in Florence. You made the special "celebration stay" for our family one to cherish & remember! You're simply the best & a one of a kind of hotel in Italy. Mille Grazie to all!!!

Hotel's Favorite
A bit quirky hotel, but with lots of character. But all staff are lovely and always there to help you. Great recommendations for restaurants. It's just outside the limited traffic zone and within walking distance of all sights, but they also sell bus tickets at the counter - which you can even sell back if you don't use them - every detail you can imagine is well thought of... With free parking (other Florence hotels charge easily 35 euros per night) and so much love from staff it is a real bargain. Nice breakfast in the garden, and very special: a free aperitif in the evenings, which is an opportunity to mingle (at safe distance) with other guests.

We love Hotel David, Truly excellent and attentive service in a beautiful hotel with lovely rooms and public spaces and extremely careful attention to Covid safety. Not only the staff and premises are amazing, but the included/complementary breakfast and apperitivo hour (at outside tables for safety) make this hotel an incredible value. Even parking on site, if you need it, and convenient Oltrarno location with a 20' walk to Ponte Vecchio or 1 minute walk to a stop where compact busses whisk you down along the Arno if you prefer. Highly recommend for your Florence stay.

Spent 4 nights her. A 20 minute walk from the centre of Florence along the River Arno. Or a 5 minute bus ride for 1 euro. Bed were comfortable and despite being on a main road the shutters gave or room peace and silence. The service was quiet and unassuming but efficient. Would highly recommend a stay there with the added bonus od several local restaurants to try.

We just returned from three weeks in Italy. The Hotel David was by far the best place we stayed in during that time. Our room was on the top floor. It was large, with an excellent bathroom, but by far the best part of it was the two (!) private balconies attached to it. The staff was extremely helpful. We needed laundry done, no problem (unlike at the four star hotel we stayed in elsewhere.) They also arranged a car and driver for us at short notice. The breakfast was excellent, plentiful and varied. The included aperitivo in the garden was a lovely addition. While the hotel is not right downtown, it was an easy walk to the historic district. There was a taxi stand right outside the door, and buses were an easy alternative for those who don’t wish to walk. We cannot recommend this place more highly.
