If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Florence, this is the hotel for you. A brisk 20-30 minute walk from town. Comfortable rooms with a free mini bar. A happy hour with wine and snacks and a chance to mingle with others.

Just finished our stay at this wonderful hotel. Situated in a brilliant position for all tourist interests and bus stops right outside of the hotel to take you into the chaotic city centre, this hotel offered everything we wished for and provided the most superb customer service.
Not swanky in any way just a very comfortable typically Italian hotel . Staff who go the extra 5 miles to help and look after every need of their guests.
Happy hour free drinks every evening, free 10 minute phone call to most worldwide destinations and lovely departing gift of toiletries.
Comfortable rooms and quiet air-con!
Continental breakfast that is perfectly adequate and well presented.
The most unpretentious of hotels that offers five star customer service.
Can't recommend highly enough!
A quick comment on Florence it throngs with cars in all pedestrian areas so you need eyes in the back of your head and as road surfaces are very old and uneven the ultimate comfort in shoes!

Room Tip: Room 30 is very spacious and comfortable with fabulous terrace that offers great views of Florence...

I would echo the previous comments, very friendly, helpful staff, nothing was too much trouble. The extras were fantastic, free wi fi, free 10 minute international call each day, and of course, free drinks and snacks each evening. Great breakfast and pleasant, leisurely walk into the city centre.
Large bedroom, with spacious bathroom, very clean, and quiet, even facing the road.
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone, thanks to all the staff for making our stay so wonderful.

The hotel lived up to all the above & beyond service that is given in many reviews. Truly first class with their warmth & recommendations. However, avoid room 14. Very disappointed in the room and the bathroom window on the same sight level as the neighbor's balcony. We could see and hear the folks on the balcony clearly while using the toilet. No shade on window...just fogged glass. Very very weird layout.

We reserved our room 6 months prior and appear to have gotten the worst room. Heard some others got tremendous rooms only booking a few weeks earlier at same price point.

Other than this issue, strongly recommend Hotel David.

Dear Guest,

I have spoken with you personally and despite I agree that it is a strange setting but as I told you in person sometimes when you convert an old villa into an hotel this things might happen but to be honest there is a fogged glass and a roller shutter.....and regarding other Guests who booked closer to date than you and had a better room depends how long you and the other people were staying and also how the bookings where matching with the others.
I apologize not to have been able to change the position of the bathroom window but is was the only solution possible.
My best,
Gabriele Cecioni

I seriously regret not staying at Hotel David longer. Immediately you feel how that extra mile in service can make the difference. It was more than just being efficient and polite. There is a warmth that can be immediately felt in this family run business. The rooms are simple but practical and clean. I agree with previous comments about the bathroom being wonderful and bed comfy.
The location is ok. A 10 minutes or so walk (or shorter bus ride) to the main part of town, but its a nice stroll along the river. It will be my first choice if I have to chance to return to Florence.
