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.
