Hotel David
Ranked #1 of 409 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We recently spent a week in Florence and Gabriele and his staff were the best.
The hotel is in a great location, and everyone at the hotel was so nice to us.
Their recommendations for restaurants were superb and the free parking
is non-existent in the city. The breakfasts were delicious and happy hour delights were
wonderful after a day walking the beautiful city. We would highly recommend
it to anyone!

Having arrived just yesterday from a 5 day trip to Florence, I had to come and write this review wile this experience is still printed on my memory. My wife, daughter and I stayed in Hotel David 4 nights in a triple room (number 2).

First of all let me tell you about the freebies, when I read them in the hotel site I though it was almost impossible, but it was true, a 10 minute call for free for a lot of countries, every day a minibar filled with some pepsi's, water bottles and beer. And from 6:30 pm till 8pm some drinks and aperitives that where awesome after a day walking around every inch of the city. In the end they also offered us some body and hair products the same they have in the rooms for you to use. The best part of the breakfast was without a dough the capuccino.

Second the staff, some of them were quiet until you had something to say, then it was always an open smile and they tried the most to help you with every request you have. For example on the first day we had a very specific request for the dinner and Sylvia ( hope I'm writing the name well) did not rest until she found us a restaurant that had what we wanted, she called at least 4 places and booked us a table.

For the hotel, it's amazingly beautiful, the room had a kingggg size bed and it was big enough for all of us. The only thing about the number 2 room is that it's near to a toilet but we were never bothered by it's use, the water pipes are a bit noisier but you can understand that because of the age of the city, but you only ear the one on your room, I've stayed in places where you ear the baths beside.

Overall we had an excellent stay in Hotel David, we even liked the fact that the Hotel was not near any of the major visits because when you needed to rest you could.

Fantastic place. Very attentive and friendly staff. Nice area, close to everything. Rooms are immaculate and large. Outdoor patio and afternoon / evening appetizers and wine add a very nice touch. If you so inclined you can walk here from the train station, perhaps 35-45 minutes. Otherwise just take the bus. We backpack and find it more convenient to walk and enjoy the sites.

Room Tip: Room number 1 is beside a public bathroom and the sound can be loud if people are slamming the door...

Hotel David, this privately owned hotel in Florence is a must stay. Located just outside of the hustle of downtown Florence,the service here rivals any major 5 star hotel, David is a small intimate hotel with a lovely garden patio offering happy hour each evening. Rooms are large and very well appointed, clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast, warm inviting lobby with internet access and a free phone call home daily to certain countries. Wheelchair accessible , which is rare in Florence. Well done Hotel David, and will will return again. Thanks for the honeymoon bottle of champagne.

Room Tip: Some rooms have balconies, but the garden patio is lovely ,spacious and very fragrant from all of th...

Simply the best hotel we've stayed in. We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our honeymoon. The staff were amazing and so helpful with their tips for utilising your time in Florence. The room was stunning and the view from our balcony was outstanding. There's a reason this is number 1 in Florence..... !!! We will be back !!

I do not normally write reviews but really felt compelled to after staying at hotel david recently. I have stayed in many hotels and many of them luxury 5 star and the service at hotel David is up there with the best. The hotel itself is not located in the centre of town but I was glad to be away from the hustle and bustle and it was a lovely 15 min walk along the river to get the centre. The ambiance of the hotel is lovely. The free happy hour at 6pm is the perfect way to start your evening and the breakfast is wonderful too. Fast reliable wifi, free drinks in the room and really helpful staff that cannot do enough for you make this hotel one of the best. Don't change what you are doing hotel david because its awesome! I will be back with my family again soon. Karen Beck

Everything that needs to be said about this hotel is in the thousands of reviews already on here so I won't repeat things too much. The staff can't do enough for you and that makes a big difference to your stay. Location, happy hour, the bar, bedrooms and breakfast are all perfect. Don't even think about booking anywhere else. Thank you for making our first ever trip to Italy a memorable one.
