Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What can we say about Hotel David? A lovely little hotel close to the river and convenient for walking into Firenze. We loved the happy hour and the breakfast and the staff who managed these. After touring in the city it was so nice to come back to the happy hours. The rooms were clean and quaint. There could be noise from the road, but shutting the windows kept it quiet. We didn't realize that the heat was on at the radiator until a few nights so be sure to turn it off at the source if it is hot. The living room next to the lobby is very nice and there is an allowance of cold drinks and coffee machines 24/7 by the living room. We hope to stay there on our next trip. A good value for a local hotel that we all enjoyed very much!

The room was super spacious and comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Free parking in the hotel premises. Walking distance from the city centre, or you can take the bus to get there directly (bus station in front of the hotel). We got helpful information about the area/restaurants from the lovely staff and they made the dinner reservation for us (thank you Rukman!) Did I mention the daily happy hour and free drinks??? 🤌

Hotel David was further from the centre of town than we had expected. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise!! After visiting the popular, extremely busy tourist attractions in Florence, it was a pleasant relief to return to Hotel David.. The front desk staff were very kind, patient and helpful and had great dinner recommendations. It was a welcome change to have dinner where locals ate. Our room was small, but met our needs comfortably. Lovely bathroom with a great shower. We visited Florence in a seasonal transition and for April, it was unseasonably warm, 28°C to be exact! The front desk was kind enough to provide us with a fan for our room, which made a world of difference, thank you! The breakfast room was cheerful and bright with a lovely buffet. Hotel David offers an amazing complementary happy hour(s) with wine and beer offerings and a wide variety of finger foods. My husband and I have been travelling for 35 years and have only come across this once before. It’s unheard of today and very generous. The only regret we have is that we didn’t stay here on previous visits to Florence! Thank you all for your hospitality.

Hotel David is a true gem. Not too far from the centre of Florence (20 mins walk) also on a bus route. The staff are excellent- providing plenty of information and they clearly want you to enjoy and make the most of your time in Florence. The hotel provides all you need, and is very clean. Breakfast offers plenty of choice as does happy hour with a range of beer /wines and delicious snacks. Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thank you to all the team at hotel David for making our stay so enjoyable.

Fabulous, spacious, well equipped and comfortable room with a balcony. We visited Florence for our wedding anniversary and the staff had left us a ‘happy anniversary’ message with a bottle of fizz to help us celebrate!! The staff were just brilliant, nothing was too much trouble - even finding and booking an emergency dentist when we needed one. Happy Hour with drinks and snacks in the garden every night was a real bonus and much appreciated. Hotel David is a short riverside walk into the main (very busy) town making it the ideal location. We will be recommending to all our friends and almost certainly coming back!

Hotel david is a good hotel to stay in florence, especially if you are on a budget. Our room was spacious and clean with a big balcony overlooking the dome from far. The breakfast was limited in variety, but it was good. They also have a happy hour in the evening where they offer free wine, but we always missed it. The bus station to the city center is just outside the hotel. You can buy the bus tickets from the hotel but. You can always use pay and go through your credit on the bus. All the hotel crew are friendly and provide an excellent service.

I am so stupid that I most probably would not have booked hotel David if I had known that it is only a 3* hotel. And am I happy I booked a 3 night stay in their Junior suite? One of the best - if not the best - hotels I have stayed in Europe. Their hospitality was absolutely overwhelming, the room with it's huge terrace was a delight, lovely breakfast ( thank you, hard working, happy looking breakfast lady) the location was a huge benefit especially with soooo many tourist in Florence and we walked to the city center eventhough bus stop and hop on- hop off stops were right in front of the hotel. If we return to Florence, I will not even think about staying anywhere else
