Dear Guest,

Thank you to have put us on your personal podium! Our location is not a secret we are 20 minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio bridge!
My best,

The positive feedback left by others were spot on about Hotel David. We were particularly impressed by service we received from Chiara, who pointed us to the great restaurant locations including her favorite pizzeria [Gattabuia] ; Ernesto, who took care of our early taxi reservation back to the Firenze airport and Vittoria, who showed us how that there is a remote button to lower the blinds if you are staying in the quadruple room on the first floor [which is very spacious] like we were and who brought us cappucino's and hot chocolate to our room when we missed the breakfast! We can attest to the little things that others have mentioned but I do have to mention about the surprise we had when we checked in. We reserved online and I guess we had a special offer to a free lunch at Trattoria Bordino in the Ponte Vecchio area which turned out really nice! I would not recommend buying the three day bus pass since you can easily walk back and forth from the hotel to the Ponte Vecchio area. If you do wish to take the bus, it is easy enough to catch the D bus right into the town, however there was no direct way to return to the hotel [at least we could not figure it out] and we spent considerable time on the bus going on its route. Much easy and faster to walk back to the hotel if you can manage it.

Having a first trip overseas as a single parent with teenagers it was a bit overwhelming! Until we reached the Hotel David. The staff was so incredibly helpful we actually cut short the end of our trip to return to Florence and the Hotel David. They helped with extrememly accurate and easy walking and driving directions, called cabs, suggested great restaurants, and even moved and parked our car for us. It has to be one of the best places we have ever stayed. And the room was great with 3 beds!

Room Tip: no restaurant but happy hour snacks and breakfast were awesome

We loved this hotel. The attention to detail, the friendliness of the staff, the location, the rooms and breakfast were top class! Just little things like our luggage being taken to our room whilst we checked in, then to find a cake on our bed with a little note wishing us a happy holiday, a complimentary mini bar and snacks just marks this hotel out as the best we stayed in on our tour of Italy. Would highly recommend this hotel to friends & family, it really is top notch.

During our trip to Italy my wife and I have also visited the beautiful Florence. We booked the hotel after David searched the internet for what he did for us. The hotel is in a good central location about 10 minutes walk from the Duomo. The rooms are very well maintained, renewed and very clean. What struck us was the friendliness of the staff, they are great. I hope to come back again in Florence and will book definitely here
