“Amazing family run hotel”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

Fabrizio was very helpful, from where to eat to organising tickets to main attractions for us. He was very attentive. His father welcomed everyone in the reception area. I wish I could speak Italian or him English, I'm sure he would have a lot of stories to tell about the area and the beginning of the hotel.

The hotel provided a lot of modern technology such as ipads to read the newspapers & laptops in each room. The wifi was strong even in your room. It never dropped out. The beds were extremely comfortable. Even though our room had a street view we never heard traffic. It was nice to have multiple tv channels in English.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs, asks for a room on a lower floor.

I loved this place! We stayed in a family suite with our three sons for four nights. The staff (family affair), are second to none, nothing is a problem. The location is so convenient to all Florence attractions. Will definitely be back!

I probably spend more time in the air than on land meaning many hotel stays in different places. Having been a guest in hotels from Las Vegas to Dubai, nothing has come even close to the Davanzati for me. The highlight really is the impressive team of father and son (both incredibly charming by the way) who take care of everything: restaurant recommendations, museum tickets, taxis, trains, you name it. More than one stay there has made it a point of reference not just for me but I see from the reviews it’s the same for other guests as well so...this is definitely not your average hotel!

Ring the bell and they will bring up your bag. Beautiful small boutique hotel, larger than normal rooms, modern bathroom and all amenities. Great location near Piazza della Repubblica. They recommended a couple of good restaurants right around the corner. Easy walk to major sites.

We returned to the Hotel Davanzati for the second time and found it to be as great as we had remembered from our first stay. This time, we were joined by our three kids and chose a very nice suite which, for us, was perfect. The location of the property is convenient to dining, shopping, and touring and Fabrizio and Tommaso were helpful and accomodating as advertised! They are great at arranging dining and tours and making everything easy for their guests. The complimentary breakfast is very good and the evening happy hour is nice as well. Our suite had a separate master and two other sleeping areas perfect for the kids. There was a small library with reading for adults and kids and even free video games and movies. The stairs are not a problem at all, just be prepared to had off the luggage to the bellman. The suite was a little pricey but worth the money based on what we experienced. Our kids rated this the best lodging of our entire trip and we will definitely try to return!

Room Tip: Each room is a bit different so work with management to select the one best for your needs.

Fabrizio and Tommaso were very helpful from beginning to end. You can ask anything to them from restaurant choice to money exchange or souvenir. Upgrading the room for my anniversary was a special treat. Do not worry for stairs. It is worthy to use this hotel.
