      This is one of the best hotels I have stayed at for a number of reasons as follows; free laptop and internet in your room, free tv and movies, free drinks and nibbles every night, room includes breakfast, rooms are spacious and cleaned every day, the staff are friendly and helpful, the hotel is centrally located to all the major attractions and is in a lovely part of the city and easily walkable from the train station. There are a large number of restaurants in the area plus it is close to the main shopping streets. It is also very close to the river.

      We were in a quiet room, I understand that some rooms over the street might be noisy, however the hotel provides 'white noise' machines. There was one in our room but we never needed it. The hotel will do bookings for you - we didn't use the service but spoke to others who had.

      We were glad we booked here and not near the train station which seemed to be an unpleasant, crowded and noisy part of the city.

      I chose this hotel off of other trip advisor reviews. This is an excellent hotel. Fabrizio and his family went above and beyond for us. I had them get our museum vouchers which save time waiting in line. Free cocktail hour and breakfast which they opened earlier for us the morning we left Florence. Hotel room was spacious even for a family of 4. Bathroom even had a US plug. Lap top in every room, iPads in lobby. This is a family run hotel, they we so kind and helpful with every aspect of our stay in Florence. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

      This hotel is off of a side street, so most of the time it was very quiet. It was very easy to walk to all the sites in Florence. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is normally set up at 7:30. When we told the owner we would be leaving at 7 on our check out day, he had breakfast ready at 6:30. The owner drove us to the airport since the hotel now provides car tours and shuttles. We appreciated having the lap top computer, wifi, and a tv with English speaking channels and movies in our room. The wood shutters over the windows made the room dark and easy to sleep in. One Friday night a bar had loud music in the street but it stopped at 10. There were books to read by chairs and couches in halls.

      Room Tip: Our room 303 was quiet. It was away from the elevator and up only one flight of stairs from the lobby.

      An excellent family run hotel, well situated with large airy well kept bedrooms, which are well sound proofed and have good shutters to block the sunlight for sleeping.

      The family operates a "happy hour" each night with complimentary nibbles and Prosecco. The lights go down and music is played, great fun.

      The emphasis is on being just a little different and a little funky (in a good way), this is achieved without a problem.

      Centrally located, although the entrance is only a single door you might initially miss. The three generations of the family look after you very well and we would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Florence in the "mid range" hotel band - in fact anyone travelling to Florence, why pay more?

      Looked after our car and this was brought back at our request and sorted out the extra charge required by the city for travelling into the centre. Streets are tiny in the very centre with many one way streets and pedestrians/scooters/bicycles, OK but just take it slow. If you do have a car, it's definitely worth contacting the hotel first for directions as you have to go through a restricted zone - which you might not realise is ok to do.

      It's also worth noting that our sat nav system did get a little confused both on the way in and out of the centre of Florence, as the one-way systems do tend to change (at whim seemingly) so you have to follow your nose a bit - it's worth looking at the map on the screen, to see where you are ultimately headed!

      My bride of 30 years and I took a vacation to Italy and celebrated our anniversary at the Hotel Davanzati in Florence - it did not disappoint! All of the reviews are true!
      I started planning this trip 10 months in advance and booked this hotel about 7-8 months in advance. The hotel could not have been more helpful and accommodating in preparing for our trip, helping us book reservations, recommending restaurants and so forth. The rooms are great! The breakfast is excellent! The service is phenomenal (and I worked for 5 star hotels for years). I only wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel has a fantastic location in the old part of the city.
      When my wife and I got back from the trip we talked about which hotel and which city was our favorite of the vacation (kind of like asking what's your favorite color) - but in this case, Florence and the Hotel Davanzati were absolutely our favorite city and hotel.
      Fabrizio was a veritable fount of information - consistently helpful with a desire to make every question easily solved. His son Tommaso was supremely helpful with our emailed questions and museum reservations. As the website says Marcello, the patriarch was the most charming.
      We would recommend to anyone and we will be back!
