I found this family-owned hotel through TripAdvisor and enjoyed four days there with my family. Davanzati is a lovely, clean and ideally located hotel with very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated rooms and newly renovated bathrooms.
All members of the family and the staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful. That is exactly what makes this hotel great. The natural warmth and kindness of these people and their superb hospitality made us feel like guests in the house of good friends. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

We enjoyed our staying in this hotel. The staff is friendly and helpfull. The hotel has been rebuilt and is very confortable. It's clean and it's situated near the most interesting places of the city. I will reccomend it to anyone coming from Italy and abroad.

I surprised my wife over the Christmas and took her to Bologna and Florence having the privilege to be able to stay at the Hotel Davanzati was a superb experience
Parking is a problem outside the Hotel but they have arranged a valet service to garage your car
The location is perfect and rooms spotless and the staff are so professional they are very relaxed and friendly
Will stay here again
All rooms are no Smoking be warned
For a hotel one year old they have done a great job

I found this hotel through TripAdvisor and enjoyed my seven days there from 24 Dec to 31 Dec 2004. It is run by a family and they take great pride in their property. My single room with double bed was a little cramped but quite comfortable. The bathroom was well-sized and even had a small window that allowed for good ventilation. Breakfasts were solid with good coffee.

Davanzati is located very close to the Duomo (I think only the Savoy is really closer) and a short walk to Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria, the Museum of the History of Science, the Accademia, the train station, and everything else. I _very much_ appreciated the two free Internet access points in the public areas. It made a huge difference to me in figuring out the bewildering schedules of museums, restaurants, and other happenings. In addition, Fabrizio and Tommaso were very good about making recommendations and reservations for museums and restaurants.

Their rates are quite reasonable given where they're located in a major tourist hotspot. Highly recommended.

My partner and I were fortunate enough to spend four wonderful nights at the Davanzati in October. The location was superb, right in the heart of historic Florence, and the accommodations were brand new, well furnished in classic Tuscan style and spotlessly clean. Our room was large, comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty (especially the custard-filled cornetti and apricot tart). But what really makes the Davanzati special are Fabrizio, Patrizia and their son Tommaso. They went out of their way to make our stay a pleasure, from suggesting restaurants and making dinner reservations to booking train tickets and museum reservations. Their knowledge of Florence is invaluable, and their warmth and hospitality made us feel like guests in the home of friends. We can't wait to stay there again.

We have just returned from a 2 day one night stay at this hotel......firstly the location of the hotel is perfect, simply perfect...the rooms were spacious and had fridges, cooker, balcony and comfortable beds.....but the rela winner is the host and owner...he could not have been more helpful.....when it turned out that the restaurant he recommended was closed he drove us himself across town to another place........he did not charge for bottles of water from the mini bar and was so nice it was not true...PLUS FREE 24HR INTERNET ACCESS!! never had this before
