“Excellent service and location, comfortable rooms”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We just got back from a week in Italy. My wife and I spent a 2 nights in Florence. I highly recommend selecting the Hotel Davanzati for your accommodations in Florence for several reasons.

The location is excellent. It's walking distance to the train station, as well as many of the points of interest in Florence. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Fabrizio and Leonardo were awesome. They helped with map locations, reservations for museums, recommendations for restaurants, calling taxi cabs, and carry luggage.

The rooms are quite beautiful and well-appointed. We stayed in a small suite which had very modern amenities. Toilet, bidet, sink, shower, heated towel rack...all looked quite new and beautifully designed. However, the wood desk, window shutters, and other furniture kept the room grounded with an authentic "old world" feel. There was even a painting of the Mona Lisa on the wall.

The hotel offers simple morning breakfast of bread, croissant, yogurt, cereal, meat & cheese, water & juice. They also offer a happy hour from 6:30pm to 7:30pm with complimentary red wine or prosecco, and some light snacks.

The only downside to this hotel might be the stairs you must take to get into the lobby & rooms. From the street level, it's really only a short flight of stairs which will take you to the lift (elevator). The lift is small, but it will assist you with reaching the lobby and higher levels if necessary. Aside from this, the hotel is definitely worth your patronage. I know that when I return to Florence, the Hotel Davanzati will be my hotel of choice.

The hotel is about a half mile from the train station (Firenze SMN) and was easy to find. Our room was actually a suite, well appointed and comfortable with air conditioning, soundproof windows, a separate shower area, a divider between the bed and the sitting area and a large walk-in closet.

As others noted, the staff is friendly, professional and attentive. When we returned from lunch and realized we left a bag with our purchases at the restaurant, Fabrizio called them to confirm it was there and had them hold onto it for us. We will definitely stay here the next time we visit Firenze.

Room Tip: Our room (105) faced the street and it was fun to watch cars and people going about their business...

We lst visited Florence in 2006 with a group of friends when we stayed at this Hotel. We decided on a return visit to Florence and booked the Davanzati without a moments hesitation and without looking at any other properties. That's how good the memories were!

We were not disappointed! The Hotel is as friendly as ever. The rooms are lovely with every amenity you could wish for including three free wi-fi access codes! The breakfast with freshly made coffees and the evening Happy Hour are all as good as ever. The location cannot be bettered being really central within easy walking distance of everything you wish to see in the city.

Fabrizio and Tomasso made our museum bookings and our first night restaurant booking before we arrived and restaurant bookings for each night of our stay apart from one. Thank you to all the staff for making our second stay as good, if not better than our first.

We stayed here in March 2104. The stairway up fro the street adds to the romance of the location. Right on a central square in Florence easy walk to Ponte Vecchio, Tournaboni and all the sites of Florence. We were greeted by Tomasso, just one of the many family members who make you feel welcome. We stayed in a beautiful top floor suite with our own outdoor veranda. The evening happy hour afford you the opportunity to meet the other guests. The room was immaculate with agreat bathroom, bed and amenities. Ipads with newspapers, great WIFI and a laptop in the room. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Stay in room 304. its HUGE with a terrific outdoor veranda with table and chairs. Perfect for an eve...

We recently spent our night in Florence at Hotel Davanzati and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect, the staff are outstanding, and the hotel is beautifully furnished and impeccably maintained. We had a family suite with separate "lofts" for each of our two children that were big hits. The attention to detail and quality throughout really set this hotel apart. We can't wait to return to Florence and will absolutely book our stay at Hotel Davanzati.

Room Tip: The family sujite was perfect for our family of four.

From the first impression when we arrived to the day we left we could not have had a better stay. The room was spacious and comfortable. Hotel close to everything. The steps were not a problem for us. There is not a place in Italy that does not have steps so you get used to them. Highly recommend this hotel. You will not be disappointed!!!!
