Reviewed December 4, 2013

We started our first trip to Italy with two nights in the hotel David. The decor was beautiful. The view from both of our balconies was excellent. One of downtown florence and the other of the hills surrounding florence. The staff was amazing and all spoke English making it easy to get around. They have a great happy hour serving wonderful snacks and wine. As a bonus you can use their phone to call home for 10 minutes each day. Every morning a great breakfast is served to start the day.

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor. The views were great and they have a lift

We stayed two nights at Hotel David on our recent trip to Florence and we had a great time. The staff, breakfast, service, and happy hour are great! We will definitely recommend Hotel David to our family and friends who visit Florence. Hotel David is No. 1 on Tripadvisor for a reason!

We stayed 4 nights in Florence at the Hotel David. Amazing service, great breakfast and well appointed rooms. The staff was incredibly helpful and available at all times. Since Florence is small and a very walkable city, the away from downtown location was a plus and proved to be a real benefit as we were able to view the annual city marathon by the river. A great experience.

Hotel David was such a great place to stay. The rooms are very large and comfortable. They offer free wifi and breakfast. I almost forgot their happy hour. Every evening they offer wine and other beverages along with little snacks. We enjoyed that time very much and made sure we were back in time to go. They also have a great lounge where you can just relax. The staff was very helpful. The bathrooms have been recently renovated. It is not in the heart of the city so you do have a 15-20 minute walk across the bridge to all the attractions. You can also take a 10 minute bus ride. I would definitely return to Hotel David next time I am in Florence!

Room Tip: Each room is unique so you can call ahead and book one that suits your needs.

Our family of 5 stayed at Hotel David for two nights in August. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very comfortable, clean, and roomy. The lobby/lounge area was a welcoming place for us to play chess, use the computer, and relax. The breakfast was enjoyable on the patio, as was the happy hour. Laundry facilities were useful as this was the middle of our trip to Italy. It was a short walk to the city and attractions, but the walk was enjoyable. My next visit to Florence will definitely include a stay at Hotel David.

The Hotel David is a fine hotel with well appointed rooms. The service is excellent; the people attentive. A very nice feature is the opportunities they create to bring together guests. We had a number of occasions for talking with fellow travelers about their adventures.

The hotel is a solid 15 minute walk from the main sites in town. We didn't mind, especially given the fine weather during the two days we were there, but it would require transport for those not so inclined to walk or during foul weather.

Room Tip: We had a nice balcony on room 12

Dear Guest,

I'm very happy you had good time and I thank you for the suggestion you gave to other travelers that our location is not downtown and you have to be ready for a good 20 minutes to arrive at Ponte Vecchio bridge or 3 minutes with public transportation.

Perhaps it is pointless to add a five-point review to so many others, but my wife and I were so satisfied with our two-night stay that I thought I should echo them. On all the positive aspects of the Hotel, a special mention deserves to be made to the free parking facility, a very rare thing to find in Florence. Also, the breakfast selection was superb. In addition to good rooms and comfortable bathrooms, the David is unique in providing free services like the early evening aperitif, and free printing from its two brand new Macs. As mentioned by so many other reviewers, the staff is extremely helpful and simpatico.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms next to the breakfast area. Room 19 is right next to it. Better get a room on the second...
