A short cab ride from Santa Maria Novella train station through beautiful, winding streets brought us to this historic, European boutique hotel that gets an A+ in all categories. Hotel Davanzati is steps from the romantic Piazza della Republlica, superb dinning and historic sites including a short 5 minute walk to the Uffizi Gallery. If this ideal location were not enough, we were welcomed to this family-run gem by 89 year young Marcello, his son Fabrizio and grandson Tommaso. Don't worry if you can't speak Italian. These worldly and extremely cordial hosts are fluent in English. I have promised myself to honor them during my next visit by learning some conversational Italian. My wife, 14 year old daughter and I were in awe when Fabrizio opened the door to our room. Our quiet, impressive accommodation was a perfect blend of antiquity and modern comforts featuring exposed brick and a wonderful brick archway, stately wardrobe, modern bathroom and picturesque courtyard view. In the morning we enjoyed delectable offerings in the hotel's attractive, cozy breakfast area. Our only regret is not being able to taste a breakfast cake Fabrizio made and was bringing in at the very moment we were getting in our cab to depart. We will certainly stay here our next visit to Florence. Warmest regards to Marcello, Fabrizio, Tommaso and to their cordial and professional staff! Look no further than Hotel Davanzati.
