I can only emphasise the glowing reviews already written. The location, service, comfort, attention to detail (special sound proofing glass fitted to windows and white noise machine), extras like free wifi, happy hour, ticket booking, make this a superb small hotel.

We stayed here for only two nights while we were in Florence. The hotel is beautiful, great breakfast, and front desk staff were VERY helpful. It was very busy and only one person working the desk, but he took his time with everyone and made sure they were satisfied. Gave great recommendations and drew a map on how to get to certain destinations. Our room was very nice, cool and clean. We loved it! We did have a problem with our TV, but were too tired at the end of our day to watch TV or really care to complain to have it fixed.

We stayed for 7 nights in August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The city reaches very high temperatures and our room was kept beautifully cool. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was great, with good water pressure.

The room was kept very clean and the service we received was brilliant. The happy hour is a lovely idea and the breakfast offered a good choice and provided an ideal start to the day.

Another key benefit is the location - near all major sights and the train station, which was very useful for meeting tours and getting to and from the airport. We walked everywhere and there was a huge choice of restaurants nearby.

I would recommend it highly and would most certainly stay there again!

We are a family of three and stayed at this hotel for three nights in mid July based solely on testimonials through tripadvisor. We can attest for all of the positive reviews written. The location is ideal, the room we had was street facing but quiet, functional and had a lovely ambiance. Breakfasts were very decent with superb coffee and the happy hour is an added bonus. The hotel is well managed and the staff are professional and courteous. We were warned about the 26 steps leading from street level to reception when we booked. Carrying three large suitcases up these wasn't ideal but we managed OK although I would however point out that these steps may prove challenging for anyone with mobility issues. Would stay at Hotel Davanzati again in a heartbeat.

The hotel is in a great location, convenient to all the main attractions of Florence yet small and full of personal service. Our room was small, even by European standards, but bed was a king and very comfortable and everything was well laid out. Plus we didn't spend much time in the room anyway. Both the included breakfast and the evening social time with food and drinks were first class. We enjoyed meeting and getting to know several guests from different countries during the included social time. The hotel reception area is located on the second floor, so all must navigate the first set of steps, but staff will come down to the entrance to carry all baggage to rooms. Staff helped secure passes to museums before arrival and provided us excellent recommendations on dinner and places to visit among our list of possible extras. We are planning a return to Florence next year and will certainly be returning to Davanzati.

An ideal place for families with small kids - central, rooms with "two halves" that enable you to have you kids with you, and a father-and-son team running the hotel who cannot do enough to make your stay fantastic. Highly highly highly recommended,

We (family of 4) had a suite room here for 2 nights in early August. The room had a king bed and the staff put in 2 very nice single beds where the sofa would have been. Quality of beds appointments and bathroom were all great. We also had a little roof top patio. If Italy was not in a heat wave when we were there we would have used it. AC worked great. Breakfast was a nice continental with great coffee. They also have a free happy hour during the apertif time with light snacks and wine each evening. Staff is there 24 hours and were very helpful with all requests. Location is great. Easy walk to anything in downtown Florence and the bridge and the shopping street equal to the magnificent mile in Chicago but on a quiet side street. We slept very well. One of the reasons Italians are in great shape is because if the number of stairs they climb in these older buildings. There is a small elevator which was helpful to get the suitcases up. But after that I think it was 50 steps -not consecutive- from street level to our hotel room. They advise you that you need to come up stairs to get to the lobby before completing your reservation. It was fine for our family but jic you have anyone with mobility issues in your group this might not be the best hotel for you. It was well worth the effort to access the beautiful room and made us feel less guilty about all of the great gelato we were eating:)
