There was a time when we couldn't imagine to go to the same holiday destination more than once, but Hotel David and the city of Florence has captivated us after our first visit
in august 2008. So we made a weeks return visit and enjoyed it once again. From the moment we made our booking on the internet until the last minute of our stay the staff was extremely helpful. The outstanding feature is their warmth and friendliness! It can be rain outside , no matter - the sun is always shining inside ! Everything there is done to make guests happy. Sitting in the lovely breakfastroom to enjoy their homemade breakfast is a great start of the day . This time it seemed that the selection has been
improved. Although we hadn't anything to complain about last year, it was really great to find meat like the " Prosciutto " and different sorts of italian cheese ( i think even the famous Pecorino was one of these ...) on the buffet ! Our best regards to Francesca, she was so attentive throughout the stay, always asked if we would like to have a capuccino or espresso . And then it was served with a smile, nothing was too much trouble.
This time a full mini bar was also included in the price !
We think the location is perfect. Hotel David is close to the heart of the city, yet far away
to be peaceful. We loved the walks along the Arno ( about 20 minutes ) with its beautiful scenery. It offers welcome relief from the crowds in the evening. For those who want to
take photos, here you have the best views over Florence around the corner, from the
Piazzale Michelangelo or San Miniato al Monte . Breathtaking !
If you don't like walking , you have a good busservice directly outsaide the hotel.
They even provide you with tickets, each for 1,20 Euro.
It's hard to put it into words how special a place it is. Atmosphere is something you
only can feel. You can read all the reviews but I promise the real experience is much better. We want to continue discover Florence - so in conclusion all I can say is that we will definitely come back !!!
We would recommend it to all who are looking for a memorable stress-free stay in one of the most charming hotel in Florence. The rooms are beautiful, perfectly cleaned.
Thanks again for the hospitality, best wishes from Sweden .
