“Never Disapoints”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

I have just returned from another stay at Hotel Davanzati. Each time, my wife and I have brought a different set of friends with us. Each time, they cannot stop telling us how impressed they are with the wonderful way that Fabrizio, Tomasso and their family and staff operate the hotel. The family style ambiance, mixed with all of the best services and features makes this hotel an outstanding choice for a stay. They seem to attend to all your needs so seamlessly that you think you are at home. Everything just seems to flow. Whether you need reservations for dinner or tickets to one of the historical sights or tours of the city, nothing seems to phase them. It just all gets taken care of. The complimentary wine/prosecco hour they have is intended to establish a gathering spot for all of the guests to share the highlights of their day. It done in such a way that all guest feel comfortable mingling. You can't ask for more than the Davanzati.

Room Tip: Take a room not exposed to the pedestrian area below.

Don't be put off by the steps leading up to this hotel because every step is worth the journey. We could not have been treated any better by any of the staff. Nothing was a bother to any of them. The room was beautiful, spacious and clean with a very comfortable bed.

An abundant breakfast each day and Happy hour every evening are what makes this place stand out. It is a very intimate family run hotel and the warmth is obvious from the minute you enter. It does not have a restaurant to dine in, but with so many fantastic choices close by, this is not an issue.

On check out, we mentioned that we were driving to Siena, so the owner offered us his GPS to use while we were there! Such a wonderful gesture and a marriage saver!!

And right next door is the beautiful private museum, Palazzo Davanzati, which should not be missed ofF your to do,list.

I could not recommend this hotel highly enough.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel, with our 4 years boy and our baby. The location is superb, at the heart of old Firenze, 3 minutes walk from offizi ,doemo, and the famous bridge. It's serounded by restaurants and very easy by all means. The room is large, nice deco, clean and elegant. At night can be noisy if you sleep with open windowe. You get free wi fi and laptop in each room . The hotel serve free wine at the evening happy hour - very nice costume . The breakfast is o.k, not more than that,include only made products. The best thing about the place is their service which is outstanding , always polite, always try to do more, always feel like home all most. We asked for help with tickets , with restaurants and few. I will recommend this hotel defenatelly

We enjoyed a second stay at the Hotel Davanzati in April, this time bringing relatives along with us, and it lived up to everything we had promised. A perfect location, in easy walking distance to every important attraction in central Florence. Pretty and well-furnished rooms; bathrooms can be a bit small but beautifully renovated [good fixtures, all ceramic tile, large and fluffy towels on warming bars]. Breakfast is substantial and tasty, and the 6:30 p.m. free happy hour is sheer delight [great for passing the time before the late evening dinner hour preferred in Italy]. But by far the greatest attraction to staying at the Davanzati is the level of friendly personal service provided by the staff, now in its third generation of family management. They will see to your every need, from museum tickets, to dinner reservations, to unique tours around Florence and the surrounding Tuscan countryside. [They are now operating a second business called "I Just Drive", which I have reviewed separately.] With our second trip, we are beginning to feel that Florence is "our city" -- and the Davanzati is definitely "our hotel". Excellent rates, cash discounts. It's the BEST.

Room Tip: We have only stayed in the double rooms with king bed (extremely comfortable) and single pull-out so...

We have stayed here before. The location is great. They do warn you about the number of steps to reach the hotel and it was not a problem for us. The evening reception is enjoyable. This family-owned hotel is very welcoming and a great place to stay.
