Tucked away up a narrow flight of steep stairs, the Davanzati is a place of light and comfort. The hotel is very well-located, within 10-20 minutes of walking of all Florence' charms, a 15 minute walk to/from the station and a 26 euro taxi ride to/from the airport. The rooms are warm and functional, and the daily breakfast, simple and filling. The charming team at the reception is incredibly helpful with reservations, information and directions, and unfailing in their welcome. A particular charm is the evening aperitif sessions where guests gather by candlelight to chat about their days over wine, before the onset of their evening plans for Florence. Each room comes equipped with a laptop and internet access which was super useful for us.
One small, niggling complaint - the windows in the room where we stayed, opened up over a rather noisy part of the old town - especially in the wee hours of the morning, and between 6 am and 730ish when the vans come to get the garbage and recyclables and u wake up to the crashing sounds of glass bottles being carted off! But, then peace returns, and with it the sunlight and tolling of church bells.
