Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 October 2009

Perfect Florence hotel for base of operations! Free, secure parking, large (and quiet) rooms, firm bed, air conditioning, marble bath w/ tub, balcony, and a friendly staff. Very reasonably priced accommodations with free phone, internet, evening cocktails and other ammenities. We found this property to be in a semi-residential area, across the Arno from the city center, but right at a main bus stop. So in 10 minutes, you're at the Ponte Vecchio! Get the map from the front desk with all the bus routes and some great restaurants noted as well. All in all a great, convenient spot to stay in Florence!

We stayed at the hotel David for 3 nights and we could not have been made to feel more welcome. The staff is wonderful and they accomodated my request for a room with a balcony on short notice. The free happy hours and free computer and internet access were perks that came in very handy. The front desk was always willing to provide suggestions of restaurants or things to do and they were very helpful with making reservations at museums and restaurants. The shuttle ride is very helpful especially as the hotel is below the Arno river and so not as close to the center as town as I would have liked. It was a bit of a walk every day (at least 20 minutes) but the nice staff and the large and very clean rooms and free breakfast were very memorable. This was my favorite city to visit and I hope this hotel continues to get the rave reviews. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in Italy and we would definitely rate Hotel David as the best hotel out of all the hotels we stayed in. The service was excellent and Chiara could not have been more welcoming as we trudged up the driveway with our heavy suitcases. She explained the freebies on offer at the hotel and we were most appreciative of these-free 10 minute call daily home to Australia, free mini-bar, free internet, free "happy hour" and to top it off a bottle of champagne in our room with a card congratulating us on our wedding anniversary. It is these touches that make this hotel stand out from all the rest. The room was spotless and the breakfasts were fantastic, in particular the cappuccinos. We have already recommended this hotel to our family and friends in Australia and we were pleased that we had the opportunity to stay there for five nights. Our only regret (in particular that of my husband) is that we didn't get a chance to ride in the "Pope Mobile"-maybe next time when we return to elegant Florence and the wonderful Hotel David!

We stayed at the David Hotel in September 2009. The hotel was very clean and well furnished with all the necessary commodities, it felt like home away from home. We had a room with a balcony facing the garden, it was wonderful to sit and relax enjoying the ambience. The staff were very helpful, friendly and well spoken. As it was our first visit to the country and because of our short stay, we attempted to do as much sightseeing as possible. We always had so many questions to ask as well as seeking guidance, yet they were always extremely pleasant and willing to assist. From the room to the breakfast, as well as the “happy hour”, the free internet and the convenience of making “10 min” free international calls shows the kind, welcome gesture and the importance of having a good and comfortable stay! We definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the beautiful town, Firenze!

We stayed at Hotel David for our one-night stay in Florence, as part of our honeymoon trip.
The hotel is located off the center of the city, but in a quiet and green area of Florence. Upon our arrival, the staff were very friendly and made sure that we had a special "honeymooner" treatment. Our room was charming and comfortable (furnished with an antique Tuscany bed). At breakfast, we enjoyed excellent pastries and a great capuccino!
Hotel David was an excellent choice for us!

A well run hotel which manages to be both professional and friendly. The fact that is
not in the historical centre is a bonus as the centro storico is now so congested it verges on the oppressive. In saying that the hotel is only a 15 minute walk along the river to the Uffici which is both pleasant and relaxing to do. Because of business I am
a frequent traveller to Italy and so have have had good and bad experiences with accomodation. I would rate the Hotel David as the best for value and service I have stayed in
