Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stayed at Hotel David last month. We chose the Hotel because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor.
The Hotel was very nice. We had a lovely room with a balcony facing the Street. The bathroom was beautiful, brand new.
I emailed the Hotel prior to our arrival mentioning that we were celebrating our 30th Anniversary and they remembered and welcomed us with a bottle of champagne in our room. There was also a small cake and some delicious cookies. Very thoughtful, great customer serve.
The Staff at the Front Desk was always willing to help us out and answer all of our many questions and recommend some great restaurants nearby to eat. The girl that serves breakfast was very sweet, always smiling.
The Hotel is not located in the middle of the touristy area. There is a bus stop close by that will take you right to the Ponte Vecchio. Or you can walk along the Arno River.
All in all, great place, clean and wonderful staff!

everything you read here on TripAdvisor convinced me to book this hotel and it delivered as promised. The front desk staff including Chiarra and Vittoria were super helpful and had great recommendations on restaurants in both local and in the historic center. We were looking forward to using the laundry downstairs as we had been on the road for a week with carry on bags. No problems at all, clean and efficient laundry room with detergent, softener, baskets and iron. The happy hour was indeed fun and I looked forward each evening to chatting with the other guests. They also have two new big Apple desktops to cruise the internet. The wifi was fast and always available. The complimentary room snacks and drinks were great, as was the breakfast. We personally found the hotel to be a little out of the way (and we expected that) but the bus made it convenient and easily accessible but the service ends at 8:30 pm or so, and could force you call a cab or walk back after dinner (they eat late there). I walked into town a couple of times with my young daughter, it's pretty easy (about two kilometers to Ponte Vecchio) other than having to cross a couple of really busy intersections near the hotel without a crosswalk. We cruised the local neighborhoods, mostly residential and motor scooter sales and service sprinkled with a few shops and a very friendly gelato store which was much cheaper than in the old town. Talking to and seeing some of the same travelers in Venice at the TripAdvisor no. 1 rated "Hotel Ponte al Mocingo" gave me a sense of how powerful these reviews and ratings can be. These top rated hotels have an almost cult like following which identify and help make these places great and memorable places to stay.

We stayed at Hotel David in Florence for two nights after three busy days in Rome. It was a very welcoming hotel. The staff made great recommendations for hotels (not tourist traps). It was about a 20 minute walk to Palazzo Vecchio (along the rive with beautiful views). We were also able to do a nice run up the hill to Piazza della Signoria (great views of the city). Daily happy hour and breakfast were also very good. We highly recommend Hotel David!

My sister, nephew and I would like to thank all the staff at Hotel David for making our trip to Florence a very memorable and enjoyable experience. If you want a hotel where you will be anonymous and just another guest then stay elsewhere. If however you want excellent service by staff you who genuinely love what they do, then you will not be disappointed with Hotel David. We would recommend it to families and couples alike without hesitation.

I had high expectations about staying at the Hotel David, and they exceeded them all. Very courteous staff, I sent a few e-mails regarding questions I had about Florence and they were quickly answered. We were given a room on the third floor, and it was so beautiful and spacious. It had a balcony and you could see the gorgeous skyline of Florence with the Duomo in the distance. It was a special trip for us and they wrote us a special welcoming note and gave us a bottle of Champagne and a cake. The really care about their customers. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts with lots of choices, my wife loved the quiche. The room was exceptionally clean, loved the heated towel rack, and the shower was outstanding. Our trip was something we will never forget and the Hotel David will be something we will always talk about. I hope someday we get another opportunity to stay there.

Florence - great city - wearing its art at every corner
Hotel David - perfect - location great - service outstanding - view mindblowing - this hotel is run for the customer and you feel so valued!!
We cannot wait to return - a short break is not long enough in a city where surprises are found everywhere and at a hotel run as a home from home
