We stayed at the Davanzati for 5 nights in late April 2009. The hotel staff - Fabrizio and Tomasso were very responsive and helpful on the e-mails prior to our stay so that helped a great deal in our preparations.
The hotel location is great. Near enough to the main areas and tourist attractions and not too much within the crowded and noisy parts of Florence.
We were pleasantly suprised with the room we got - a family room double storied and with 4 beds - one double bed and 3 single beds. It was perfect for us. Rooms are all generally very clean and tidy, though the housekeeping seems reluctant to provide extra towels if needed. Each room even has a laptop with free Internet access!
In the evenings, the hotel has a happy hour where there is free flow of some snacks, house wine and champagne! A very nice touch indeed.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel for those who are travelling on a budget and only willing to spend no more than say 100 to 150 Euros per night for the room. It has good value for money.
I would highly recommend the Tuscany Tour which the hotel can arrange. It includes Siena (a must see) and a tour of a winery and vineyard and wine tasting (fantastic!).
