“Felt right at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed for one night in October. If we had known of the welcome and free extras we would have planned to stay longer. From the offer of a free 10 minute call home each day, to the mini bar that you only get charged for if you request a refill, the happy 2 hours each night to mingle and sup with the other guests, the use of the laundry and the fresh tart in our room on arrival. All this and also one of the friendliest welcomes we received in our 2 weeks in Italy made sure we are recommending "David" to all our travelling friends. Easy 20 minute walk back into town and reasonable range of cafés on their side of the river meant the location was good for us. We were driving and the off street parking was a plus as well. Congratulations to all the staff on making our visit an enjoyable one.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Was a lovely stay in this hotel.
The service excellent and warm. The check in was fast and efficient. Staff very helpful.
The room service was excellent, they really try to do their best you can tell.
The decor of the room is warm and cozy but with a touch of Italian of course.
I love this hotel, enjoyed every moment of my stay.
Will be back soon as I can!
Thank you David hotel to make our holiday in Italy memorable!

Made two nights and had a very pleasant stay. First of all, the room with high ceiling was felt spacious, and separated bathroom was functional. In the room, there is a mini bar, and first filling was free of charge. Good Breakfast, and in the evening there is a lounge with minimal fee for drinks (snacks can be taken). From the Santa Maria N. (SMN) station, it is suggested to take line D, and the hotel is located at the end of the line so there is little chance to miss the place. For the tourist the place was a bit far from the Centre (Duomo, Bridge etc.) but frequently operating bus 23 can take you to those areas easily. All in all, the hotel maintains the good quality as exemplified in numbers of review made thus far.

I agree with all the other positive reviews. The hotel was comfortable, the staff was great, the dinner recommendations were very good, and the location was very convenient. The only (minor) downside was the mosquitos in our room when we arrived. The staff gave us some plug-in mosquito repellent that worked well. Our advice when in Florence is to not only see David-the statue-but stay at the David!

Staying at the Hotel David was one of our most pleasant experiences from a multitude of accommodations we have booked over the years. Access to snacks,wine, coffee, comfortable seating areas and the nightly wine and cheese gatherings all helped to create a truly memorable experience. The staff are professional, polite,available to answer questions and assist whenever needed. It was a great way to end our holiday and we will definitely be back in the near future
Quite frankly I cannot think of anything. A real gem.

We chose this hotel because of the reviews on Tripadvisor & were not disappointed. Everything was every bit as good as previous reviewers had described. The staff were so cheerful & helpful with their excellent command of English. They put us Brits to shame! We loved the breakfasts & the evening Happy Hour with snacks & wine, but my husband really appreciated the bottles of beer for 1.50 euros - so much cheaper than anywhere else. Our room was large, bright & airy, with a lovely tiled bathroom containing a huge shower, which always provided constant hot water - no variation of temperature. The toliletries were lovely & of generous size. We liked the availability of several English language TV channels on the large flat screen set. Buses stop close to the hotel & the services are frequent. The staff sell tickets (which have to be validated in the machines on the buses) & are happy to advise which bus to take. Since we only saw a small fraction of the delights of Florence, we'd love to return & would certainly want to stay at the Hotel David - that is, if we could get a booking, for this hotel is very popular!

We booked in for 4 nights following the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. All of the staff were helpful and nothing was a problem for them. The accomodation was very clean, and decor was to a very high standard - clearly money has been spent on this property. Staff were very helpful in giving advice on various places to eat and we sampled a range - the map they provide have eateries marked on it.
In terms of location, it is a 15 minute stroll from Ponte Vecchio (have I spelt that right?) which suited us. If you want to get the bus into the centre, the number 23 stops just around the corner and seems to run very often. The hotel can provide bus tickets. If you get a 24 hour ticket for 5 Euro, you could try what we did ie Used it to get the 23 into town for dinner, then in the morning, got the 23 to the terminus to catch the number 7 to Fiesole. Then the same evening, half an hour earlier than the previous night, we used the ticket to go into town again.

Room Tip: We had one of the basic rooms and that was perfectly adequate for our needs
