I can see why Hotel David ranks so high in the favourite hotels of Florence. They are extremely helpful in every respect. There were 3 of us. Thre room was by far the biggest what we had in Italy, lots of room to move. The breakfast buffet was the best we had in Italy. There were many choices from savoury to sweet. The early evening "Happy Hour" was a great opportunity to meet other guests. We ended sitting out in the terrace several evenings quite late enjoying the free snacks and wine with other guests. It was the only hotel in Italy that had a computer what we could use since we didn't have our own laptop. They have a laundry room with washer, dryer, and ironing board for 4 Euros which we desperately needed as we had packed lightly and this was midpoint in our trip. Our room had a free mini-bar with snacks (if after the hearty breakfast, generous Happy Hour, and delicious Italian restaurant meals we were hungry or thirsty). The staff tried to warn us against a tourist-trap restaurant but regretfully we didn't listen as it was written up in several tour books and sounded fun. We should have known that Gabriele knows better! The hotel has a history as the family has been welcoming guests for 50 years. It is a nice mix of old Italian villa and new modern conveniences. The Hotel is about a 20 minute walk along the Arno to the Uffizi and tourist area. We enjoyed the walk but you can also take a bus and buy tickets at the front desk. Central Florence was very crowded as it was Easter Week. Students from all over Europe had holidays and they were ALL in Florence. We were grateful that the Hotel was a retreat and not in the centre of the hubbub. We look forward to going back at a quieter time of year. Thanks to the staff for an excellent stay.
