We stayed at the Hotel Davanzati for three nights as part of our honeymoon in Italy. Fabrizio, family and staff were exceptionally welcoming and helpful, and we loved Pierluigi's happy hour (especially the free Chianti). The room itself was clean and comfortable and it was a nice touch to have a selection of DVDs & games for entertainment. We'll definitely be staying here again.

Stayed at the Davanzati in September of 2008 - it couldn't be faulted. Fabrizio and Tommaso's hospitality was outstanding, the hotel was beautiful and the location was perfect for exploring the city.
We've already booked to return again this year.....GO, you will not be dissapointed.

tomasso and fabrizio were kind, friendly and incredibly helpful from the time we booked the hotel to the time we got into our cab to come back. they helped plan our daytrips and made the process effortless. their suggestions for restaurants and watering holes were right on and the happy hour every evening was delightful. we have already recommended them to multiple people and will return again. the location is perfect and in-room laptops are a great idea!!

At first glance we were a little worried, it is in a great area, but on a "quieter" street and there is no fancy lobby on the street level. You have to walk up stairs to get to the lobby, and the hotel was not really well marked. Actually, our taxi had to drop us off about a block away because the street was blocked off to cars (when we were arriving). But this made the hotel very quiet, even during the day.

Inside the room was GREAT and the room we had was large (#103)! Very new and updated with cool design, comfy bed, you would not believe that you were in this old building. The people who run the hotel were GREAT!!! They were very helpful. The breakfast and "happy hour" were GREAT. The only thing missing to some of the fancy 5 star hotels would be the lobby.

Oh, and they supply a computer in the room and internet access that worked quickly and every time we used it! Our room had two flat screen TVs, not that you will watch TV in Florence.

We would go back there.

My work allows me to stay in some of the best hotels in every continent of the world but there is this small hotel in Florence found through Trip Advisor
that could teach them all something about service
The Davanzati is a family run affair with Fabrizio and Tomasso the main players(Father and son)
They arranged every thing for us,they arranged times for the museums,times for all the major attractions in Florence,we skipped all of the lines as our american friends call them
The restaurants that Tomasso booked for us were superb and we enjoyed the atmosphere so much that we revisited it again on our last night in Florence,we enjoyed the wine that much there, we managed to
leave the camera in the restaurant
My better half rang Fabrizio from the UK to see if we had left it in our room and he tracked it down to the restaurant for us, retrieved it and shipped it back through UPS to the UK...
It was my partners birthday whilst we were there they arranged a dozen red roses for me delivered spot on time on the morning of her birthday
a complimentary bottle of wine was left in the room with a birthday card for her from the hotel..a nice touch
The pics on the hotel website do not do the hotel justice it is much prettier than they show it to be and as for position i doubt there is any where more central and quiet
We had a first floor room overlooking the main street and there was little if any noise noticeable
In 32 years of business travel in the minimum of a 5 star hotel I have never been so well looked after as I was by the owners and staff of the Davanzati
They quite justly deserve the No 1 rating on T.A.

On our second stay at the Davanzati, we once again were impressed with the wonderful service Fabrizio gives to his guests - restaurant and museum reservations, all questions happily answered, fun "happy hour," perfect location, free use of inroom laptop computer with internet, and comfortable, yet reasonable, rooms. Most of all, one feels welcome here.

Thank you Davanzati!!!
