On our way to other parts of Tuscany, we decided to spend 2 nights at Hotel David based on the reviews and they were spot on!
pros: friendly, clean beautiful rooms, great breakfasts, great recommendations on restaurants, beautiful views of the Dome from our room.
cons: NONE
A truly first class place and Chiara made it even more special by giving my wife a present for her birthday. as if an upgrade was not enough.
This family knows customer service and small pleasantries like happy hour and ability to call any country to speak with family makes thei a specail place. We shall defintely return and send our friends here

We were curious how a quaint family-run hotel could be the top-rated hotel in such a well-traveled city such as Florence. After staying as a guest for five nights it became clear that Hotel David is something very special, and we have stayed in many brand name high-end hotels. The level of service and caring the staff provided could not be better. No request was ever refused and all inquiries, no matter how mundane, redundant, or possibly ridiculous were cheerfully answered to the fullest extent. A staff member even took the time to walk us to the bus stop across the square as insurance we knew where to go.

The cleanliness of the rooms was outstanding. As an example to the attention to detail, when the housekeeping staff saw we had used an extra blanket on the bed one night, the next time the room was made up the blanket was incorporated into the bedding. All the consumables in the room were refreshed every day, unlike many other hotels we have stayed with. Clearly the housekeeping staff reflected the same high standards exemplified by the operating staff.

Every evening there is a wonderful happy hour with good wines and snacks. We enjoyed the hospitality while chatting with fellow travelers, trading tips and information that further enhanced our trip to Florence. One evening, even though the time for the end of happy hour had passed, the staff left some wine and snacks out for us as we talked in the courtyard. This level of consideration for the comfort and happiness of the guests is certainly the norm at Hotel David.

A wonderful breakfast is served every morning offering a variety of meats, cheeses, eggs fruit and much more. Freshly made cappuccino, espresso, or many other hot drinks were expertly prepared and brought to your table either inside or on the quiet outside patio.

I could go on about the other great services like the “honesty bar,” as we called it, where you help yourself to a variety of drinks or snacks and record it on the ledger, the lending library (bring the book back next time you visit), or the amazing concierge service provided by the front desk. But like us, the best way to see how a hotel rates such consistently high reviews is to stay with them. You will then see, as we did, how the unfailingly high marks are superbly earned.

A beautiful comfortable hotel 20 minutes walk from centre of Florence. Well furnished with good water pressure and windows you can open. Lovely bath products and a free mini bar in the room. Staff are so friendly and service first class. Free wine and snacks every night and home made cake with tea and coffee when you feel the need. A free 10 minute call to Australia everyday and of course free Wi Fi. This is the best value Hotel we have ever stayed in.

Great location: on foot to Piazza de Duomo, Bobola Park, Ponte Vecchio, and other widely known Florence attractions. Free parking, a lot of extras: mini bar, wi fi etc. Bus tickets on site.
Large rooms carefully designed: tasty mix of old and modern. WE LOVE THE SHOWER!
The only minus- street noise for light sleepers.

Room Tip: Ask for the quite one

There's nothing spectacular about the Hotel David, but the room, with roomy balcony and pleasant view, and the location approximately 3/4 to 1 mile away from the main city attractions made it a very good place to stay. Breakfast was typical and fine. Internet went well. We had a rental car and it was, by all appearances, quite secure. Staff was pleasant. We'll stay here again if we return to Florence.

Room Tip: Book early. Ask for a room with a large balcony area.

Dear Guest,

Nice to see that you liked the new room with view to the city but remember that there is only 2 like that so you have to ask for that room in specific!
