Hotel David, we love you. It is easy to see why this hotel is so highly reviewed by those staying here. Wonderful welcoming people from the front desk on throughout the hotel. The location is in a residential area (with free parking right at the hotel---a premium in Florence!) so it is more quiet than most hotels. There is easy access to the major sights. Although we had a rental car we decided to park it at the hotel and walk everywhere. That was easy given the hotel location. Breakfast was abundant and good. Welcome drinks and munchies are out every night for guests--that's a nice additional touch. The minibar in the room is stocked with beer, juice, water, and refilled daily with no charge. When was the last time you encountered that in a hotel? There is also an honor bar for more substantial drinking, and cake and fruit out for guest consumption. Two publicly accessible PCs make internet use easy. Most rooms have a patio of some kind which is great to sit out on in the evening, or use to have lunch if you grab something as takeout. Our room, #31, was the best in the house---large, with bedroom, sitting area, and patio with chairs, table and lounges. There are lots of nice and quirky art touches throughout. This might be the best bang for the buck in Florence.

Room Tip: Get a top floor room. If you can reserve it specifically, ask for room #31--even the reception folks...

The little extras is what makes this hotel stand out above any that we have ever stayed. We went here for our honeymoon, and we had a bottle of champagne waiting on us in the room. There was a free happy hour with snacks each day for you to enjoy by yourself or talk to fellow travelers. The mini-fridge comes stocked with beer, sodas, and snacks for free, and it is refilled each day. The staff goes above and beyond to help you and make your stay special. Hotel David simply is excellent. It is across the river, but it was not a far walk to anything in city center, and we actually enjoyed it being more quiet when time for bed. Thanks for making our honeymoon special!

We selected Hotel David because it was top rated on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The location was a bit of a walk (~20 minutes) from the main tourist attractions but its a lovely walk along the river. And it's in a quiet area. The taxis in town are reasonable and arrive at the hotel within minutes of calling them.
The staff was very responsive and helpful. And we were surprised that breakfast and afternoon drinks were included as well as items from the room minibar. They also gave us a little surprise when we left (I'll keep that a secret so you can be surprised too !)
The room was very nice and clean.
I highly recommend Hotel David

Can I just say THANK YOU to everyone at Hotel Daivd. What a place I can see why they are number 1. Service is outstanding , Room wow we could not believe it when we saw it and it was over looking the old town, Breakfast Marie was fab what out of her way for us. When we arrived the owner he made us feel very welcome and What and helped with the bags showed us the room and the free mini- bar and told us about the happy hour (it sould be happy hours). So if you are going to Florence stay here you would be mad not too.

Room Tip: So rooms have a fab view of old town and patio area

We found this hotel via tripadvisor and it has lived up to its rating with ease. The hotel is very clean - there's always someone busying at keeping it that way. The staff are friendly and helpful - and always have time to do so; we were never in a queue for anything. The breakfast options were good. There were no disturbances at night - our room on the ground floor was very quiet. There were a number of surprises, too (I don't want to spoil them for you, but we were given a parting gift when we checked out, and every evening there was "happy hour" at no cost!). Full marks to everyone at the hotel, which we heartily recommend. Oh, and there's a convenient taxi rank right outside.

This was one of our favourite hotels that we've been to,quaint ,very pleasant with a "homey"-feel kind of hotel. We stayed here last in the last week of August so the weather was nice, not so hot and humid.The hotel itself is very clean. The service was excellent. We arrived early and were warmly welcomed by the owner. they allowed us to check-in early and the room was ready. The room was spacious for a family of four. The kids had their own beds . We loved everything about the hotel,the staff were very friendly and very helpful,no bother at all.One of the best part about staying here is the happy hour ,from 6.30-8.00pm,free drinks,wine,beer and savoury snacks and you get to know other guests staying in the hotel which was nice.Breakfast was delightful.There is also a free mini-bar during the duration of your stay which is a treat.The hotel is close to town,you can get bus tickets from the reception.Or you can walk by the river Arno and enjoy the view.
Overall the hotel is a great place to stay in Florence.We would like to stay here again,already planning for the next holiday.

Service: it is definitely an outstanding service as the staff is committed to make a nice stay for the guests. Being helpful on different requests (e.g. reservation for restaurant) and always friendly/smilling.
Value: I still feel it is expensive (I guess they take advantage of being no 1 on Tripadvisor)
Sleep: the bed was quite good but we were disturbed one night with the toilet flushing all night (neverthless fixed for the second night). The bed is original as it doesn't have feet supported on the ground but on the ceiling
Cleanliness: this is well cleaned
Location: it is not right downtown at your footstep but easily reachable by 20min on foot to reach the heart of historical centre
Room: it is completely renovated/refurbished with a nice atmosphere. Room is large and the staff welcome you with nice gifts, such as a cake and personal written welcome card
