With so many kind reviews it is difficult to find something new to say about this very pleasant Hotel after staying for 5 nights.
My wife and I stayed in early Feb 2013 and this part of Italy is much colder than when I used to often visit in the 1980's.(mild snowing two days)...climate change I guess,so it was satisfying to return to a always warm and convivial welcome after days out.
Placed just off of a busy road junction the Hotel desk hired us a vehicle(delivered) to the free adjacent car park (which gets busy weekends although the staff shuffle the cars about when blocked in)all with the minimum of fuss.
As mentioned before this place is spotless and the linen and towls are to be commended as was the ensuite toilet and shower room with a bidet.Two shower heads one rainforest and the other on high sliding connection were in a ample sized space(I hate confined shower cabinets) and the water power was top class.
Many clients enjoyed the early evening get together in the Hotel but we had booked different restaraunts each evening(see Cibreo review) and after being out all day mainly walking we didnt participate but it looked a good scene.
The streets of Firenze are not really pedestrian friendly(nor car as they are mainly banned other than trade vehicles and taxis) many streets are uneven and cycle dodging can become a new hobby,however with Hotel David you do need to walk to town centre which we enjoy but some may not and we only had a couple of taxis which are much more reasonable than the Portofino area of Italy!!
Thank you to all the staff for their unending helpfulness.
BTW ..Taxis from the Airport charge a set price of €20 to any hotel plus one euro each piece of luggage...which is nice...but watch they do not set the meter running as the guy on the way back tried to do.
