My husband and I recently returned from a 3 week trip in Italy, with 5 days in Florence in the middle. Our stay at Hotel Davanzati was truly wonderful! Our room was spacious, beautiful and very clean. We had a separate walk in closet which was a great feature. The room was a calm and quiet respite from the busy city, and we did spend a couple of hours there every day relaxing before a late dinner out. Very quiet and comfortable, despite all the activity at the height of tourist season!
We enjoyed a glass of prosecco or wine (or two) and snacks each evening after tromping around Florence all day. Met some lovely fellow Canadians (Calgarians) who we enjoyed having a drink with!
Breakfast was very nice with a good selection of yogurts, meat, cheese, buns and breads. Good cappuccino!
The hotel is centrally located, within walking distance to Everything!! Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi, Pitti Palace, Markets, high end shopping, the Arno river, etc., etc. Even if (when) you get lost in the maze of streets, you are never far from the hotel. Great location! The 26 steps to get into the hotel just makes it more cozy! (By the way, check out the Davanzati museum next door, worth a visit, though not always open!)
Staff were friendly, accommodating, and very helpful.
We loved our visit to Florence and we loved this hotel! It's our go to accommodation in Florence!
