“Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2010

Had a lovely 2 night stay here (though could have stayed a lot longer). We had flown in to Pisa and were heading off in to the Chianti area for 3 nights after Florence so we chose this place largely due to the free parking, as well as the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor.

We absoloutely loved it here - so cosy, welcoming and helpful. Rooms spotless, well equipped and charaterful. Lovely buffet style breakfast with smiley service. Not the most central location but accessible by car as mentioned, and a nice walk through Oltrarno to the historic centre (buses also available though we didn't use them). Plus we quite liked escaping the tourist hoardes and seeing the young Florentines out and about in the area.

Thanks to all at Hotel David for making our stay so enjoyable. We hope to return in the future!

This is a lovely hotel on the outskirts of Florence. It is very service oriented. I would definitely stay here again.

We spent 2 days here and it was unforgettable. This was the best hotel we ever stayed in Italy. The hotel which is a converted mansion is 15 minutes away from the city center by walking along the river Arno. It has a private garden and free parking space is available. This hotel makes you feel that you are a family guest, not a costumer. The room was spacious and full of antiques which is a plus. We didnt here any noise in the evening and it is fantastic to hear birds singing in the morning. Free internet which is fast and free minibar are adding values. But the most important aspect is the staff. Chiara was amazing. She did her best for an unbelieveable stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Dear Guest,

There is nothing better for an hotelier to have his Guests happy for their sojour they have spent! All the efforts in low season to set the organization give the final result with the posts of the people who post important feedbacks of the value of the hotel and this is what makes us so focussed on our job! Thank you!

My best,

Gabriele Cecioni

This Hotel was charming, friendly staff, spacious clean room and secure parking at the front door. Happy hour between 6.30 - 8.00pm, free wine and nibbles. Free mini bar in room. Breakfast was nice too. Great value for money.

This is one of the best small hotels we've ever stayed in. Excellent location only a short distance from the Ponte Veccio, lovely bedrooms and public rooms and above all a welcoming and efficient staff.
It is family-owned and this shows in every aspect of the hotel services. A highlight of each day was an early evening snack/buffet with wine in the hotel gradens, an opportunity to relax and chat with other guests.
A real gem of a hotel and well-deserving of the high ratings with Trip Advisor.

We selected this hotel because of Trip Advisor reviews and it's all true--Hotel David is a charming and fantastic hotel that makes every effort to provide an inviting, comfortable stay. This is the first time I've taken the time to write a review. We were there for 5 memorable nights. The hotel was beautiful, immaculate, well-maintained and had the most helpful, friendly staff--Chiara, Sabina, Michael and the young man that made me delicious cappuccinos. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. We stayed in 2 different rooms (as we extended our stay) and both were beautifully, individually decorated. Lovely, new tiled bathrooms, wonderful shower. Spacious quiet rooms--wouldn't know there were other guests

Loved those FREE extras--scrumptious breakfast, evening happy hour with wine and appetizers served in lovely garden, Internet, Wifi, phone call home, generous mini-bar which included many drinks and snacks.

Conveniences: laundry facilities (small fee), bus tickets available at front desk, taxi stop right in front, many buses stop a few steps away, short walk to great locals type restaurants (see their list).
While the hotel is not located in the center of Florence, it is a pleasant, 15-20 minute walk along the Arno River. The advantage is it is located in a semi-residential area away from the crowds. And bus stops are close by.

We chose this hotel because of the ratings and we were not disappointed.
We had a quadruple room which was very spacious .Breakfast was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful.
They have free internet which works very well and happy hour.
It's a 15-20 min walk to the center of town, but it's a nice walk along the river and the scenery is worth it,.
Would definitely stay there again.
