My wife and I spent 2 nights of our honeymoon at Hotel Davanzati. We had very high expectations based on Tripadvisor reviews we'd read, but the Hotel exceeded our expectations in every way. My favorite things about the Hotel are (in no particular order):
1. the incredibly friendly and engaging staff
2. the wonderful breakfast included in the room rate
3. the romantic and mood-setting daily happy hour included in the room rate
4. the DVD and book library available to all guests
5. the quiet but central location
6. the staff's ability to make restaurant and museum reservations
7. a fantastic, comfortable feeling of home 5,000 miles away from home
8. incredible value.
An example of the personal touch of the hotel staff: They noticed on my passport that it was my birthday. When my wife and I returned from our dinner, there was a bottle of wine and a card from the staff wishing me a happy birthday in our room.
I give Hotel Davanzati my highest recommendation. It is not the Four Seasons in terms of opulence and grandeur, but for those who don't need such chandeliers over their bathtub, this Hotel has everything.
