We wrote to the hotel via e-mail several times and the courteous and efficient hotel staff arranged reservations ahead of time at several museums and restaurants. They confirmed our status via e-mail and also presented us with a listing of what had been arranged when we checked in. No matter what the request, the staff was quick to respond and very helpful. We were given excellent tips on food, cash machines, and taxi info. The location was superb, making it a short walk to virtually everywhere and anywhere in Florence. The room was large and attractive. Yes, it was rather expensive, but for the location, assistance and peace of mind it was well worth it. They offer a significant discount for paying in cash.

Found this location through trip advisor. Lived up to expectations. From check in we knew this would be a good holiday.
The happy hour was excellent. Met some great travelers and swapped stories.
Definitely stay here if coming to Florence.

This is a very sweet place. Just make it up the steep steps from the street and you'll be rewarded with a tasteful and refreshing hotel. Free wine at the happy hour, meet fellow travelers. We did for of us in the suite. A good value. Would def. one back.

This hotel was very well located for exploring Florence. It was one of the few places in Italy where we were able to get adjoining rooms for us and our kids (family of 5). It is close to shopping and restaurants. They booked our tickets to see David and our pizza cooking class. The hotel is in a very old building so it is interesting. It was clean but not fancy. It was fine for our needs and reasonable priced. Breakfast was limited but fine and the cappuccinos were great.

Room Tip: They do have adjoining rooms for 5 that have a private patio.

This was a highly recommended hotel and it didn't disappoint. It's located in the heart of Florence and makes all sightseeing convenient. Right there near restaurants, shopping, the market, the churches, movie theater, the square....you can't ask for a better location while still preserving quiet as it's on a narrow street. The family that owns/runs the hotel (3 generations) are kind and personable and really want to help you make the most of your stay. They recommended an activity that we were thrilled to do....travel/tour in a Bentley Limo for 1.5 hours with Prosecco to a bluff overlooking the city while learning about this glorious city. It was thrilling. Yes, the tour company is part of the same family but it's fun, exciting, convenient, and the views were breathtaking. We got out there at the copy of David and took photos then walked to a bar and got another drink and toasted to this glorious city. The rooms and nicely sized, clean, and the happy hour at the hotel was a huge treat. We ran into people from our home town, Jacksonville, Florida! Free wine and appetizers along with a lovely breakfast each morning along with personable hosts....just wonderful. There are quite a few stairs to reach the lobby. You must consider this when making arrangements to stay.

Loved the Davanzati. The hotel is in a great location. It is close to all of the sights the Uffizi the Accademia the Duomo etc. The staff is equally terrific.They were always available with help and advice reservations etc. There are steps not bad but one flight and then an elevator so that is something to keep in mind.

This is a great place for a vacation in Florence. The hotel owners Fabrizio and his son Tomasso were incredibly friendly and helpful. They treated us like family. Their dinner recommendations were perfection. The location of the hotel is nothing short of spectacular. Nice touches included free happy hour Prosecco and snacks, a simple but excellent breakfast buffet, free wifi and laptops in all rooms. It was a wonderful place to start and end each day in this wonderful city. Make sure you review the Rick Steves episode on Florence. Rick's friend on the tour was Tomasso from the hotel.
