Reviewed 17 September 2011

Spent 2 nights at Davanzatti and had a great time,superb location.The staff were great,very helpful with any questions we asked, and they booked a table at Aqua Al 2 which we we had an excellent meal.The only downside was a climb of stairs at the hotel when you arrive but dont let that put you off.The happy hour was great with drinks and nibbles free.

We stayed for 5 nights in early September, and loved the Davanzati and Florence. We can only agree with all of the glowing testimonials to the hotel, which is comfortable, clean, friendly and very welcoming. Fabrizio couldn't have been more helpful, and all of the staff were very accommodating. The hotel has a cosy feel about it, and was an oasis to return to after long hot days of sightseeing. The air con was a joy, and for a 3 star hotel, they certainly go the extra mile. The stairs could be an issue for some people, but thankfully wasn't a problem for us, and after climbing to the top of the Duomi, they were a piece of cake. Can't wait to return to Florence and the Davanzati. Thank you Fabrizio and Co.

We have recently returned from another wonderful stay at Hotel Davanzati. It was our 4th time staying there, the last time being 4 years ago, and it was just as warm and wonderful as we had remembered. Fabrizio and family are extremely helpful and kind. The happy hour is a lovely way to meet other guests and the hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of Florence. I would stay there any time I return to this beautiful city.

I have stayed in many hotels all over the world and sometimes in 5 star establishments but this gem of a hotel tops them all. It has charm and character and the best service you are ever likely to experience. It is very much a family run business and Fabrizio, his son Tommaso, his father and all the staff go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Their attention to detail is commendable and its no surprise that they are No1 on Trip Advisor. The hotel is very central and most attractions are within walking distance. The happy hour every night with other guests and complimentary wine is most welcome and even the prices of the mini bar in the rooms are the lowest I have ever seen in any hotel (which usually charge a premium for extras). They even managed to remember that it was our friends anniversary and left a nice bottle of chianti in their room which we thought was excellent considering that we booked the rooms many months earlier. Well done Fabrizio and family you richly deserve all the accolades and awards that you receive.

Room Tip: Our friends upgraded to a suite for 30 Euros per night extra and we thought that this was worth the...

As a travel professional and owner of a Destination Management Company, I have incredibly high standards for accommodations, and the Hotel Davanzati met or exceeded all those expectations. Not only is the location absolutely ideal for anything one would want to do in Florence, the level of hospitality, personal attention and expertise is superb. Fabrizio, Tomasso and the entire family and staff took excellent care of all our needs. From the wine in our room celebrating our anniversary, to the wonderful breakfast each morning and the amazing happy hour each evening, the staff made us feel right at home with their family. It's just the kind of experience you hope for when traveling to Italy. We have already recommended the Hotel Davanzati to friends who are planning to visit Florence. We can't wait to return to this charming hotel.

WE arrived in Florence to stay at Davanzati Hotel for 1 night to discover that we had arrived a day early!! We were greeted warmly by Fabrizo who got us alternative accomodation within minutes. My hubby & I were most impressed by the welcome we received and have decided that if we ever return to Florence this is where we want to stay. I can easily understand why this hotel has received such good reviews. Keep up good work Fabrizo and hope to meet again.

My family of 5 stayed in two rooms for one night in July. The location is very central and easy to get to, we walked with our luggage from the railway station. There are a few steps up to the hotel but there were plenty of retirees staying there who seem to have no trouble. Fabrizio gives you a warm welcome and goes to great lengths to answer your questions and provide advice on what to see where to eat etc.

We had reserved two superior rooms but only one was available so we also had to take a standard room which to be frank was a significant step down. Go for the superior they are only a bit more expensive but a lot better.

The hotel has gone to a lot of trouble with the extras which will set it apart from most other places. Computers in every room, a collection of books to borrow, even iPads for reading the news. There is also a happy hour which is a great gesture but the quality of the drinks available is such that if you are at all discerning you will go elsewhere to one of the many bars nearby. Nevertheless, the total package is excellent value and the location could not be better.
