Although we were a bit taken aback by the modest entrance with the long staircase to the elevator, we absolutely loved the Davanzati. The rooms (picticularly the "upgrade" room) were lovely. The hotel is in a super location. Even though the hotel is located in the middle of town, shutters on the windows make the rooms very quiet. The Fabrizio's make you feel like you are staying in their family home. The evening happy hour (included in the rate) is a wonderful transition from a day of sightseeing to an evening out. They are most helpful with dinner and sightseeing reservations. Among the nice touches are a library of dvd's and books, a lap top in every room, and comfortable bathrooms. ,

Great Hotel, Great Service! Great location, Great Value. Father and son combo here who helped us with every need. Answered all of our questions. This place has a great breakfast and a happy hour with free wine and snacks. You can buy drinks as well for a small fee. Hotel is centrally located and you can walk to everything. I am really looking forward to my return to Florence and staying here again. Thanks hotel Davanzati!

We were surprised when we stepped out of the elevator and saw a clean, nice lobby. Then we entered our room and were pleasantly surprised as to how nice it was. The staff, being all related except for one, made our short stay so pleasant. The happy hour was wonderful and much better than most we have been to. Thank you for making our trip a success.

On our 9 day trip of Italy (Rome/Florence/Venice), the Hotel Davanzati was by far the best hotel we stayed it. Definitely lived up to its #1 rating and was worth every penny. It is a steal at their rates compared to other similiar hotels.

First and foremost, it has the most comfortable bed you will find in any hotel in Europe. After a long days of walking and tours the bed at the davanzati is the perfect way to get some rejuvenating and restful sleep

The rooms are well sized, we stayed in a superior double room at all the hotel in all three cities and the room at the Davanzati was the biggest by far

The breakfast is very functional and fits your early morning needs

Most importantly the staff is very (I mean truly very) helpful in helping with restaurant bookings, tour bookings and s forth. Their restaurant recs are spot on. Just ask them what your willing to pay and what you want to eat and they will guide you to the best food in Florence. We enjoyed our dinner restaurant so much that we went there both nights for dinner

Bottom line: If you are going to Florence do yourself a favor and stay at the Best Hotel in Florence - Hotel Davanzati

For a family of four (2 adults and 2 kids in college) from the south that has stayed in Ritz Carlton's and Four Seasons most of their life we knew staying at a 3 star hotel would be different. Believe me you won't be disappointed! The staff at this hotel were very responsive to all of our emails before we left and Fabrizio, Tomasso, and the rest of the staff are even more attentive and more hospitable once you get here. Every need we wished for was taken care of with a smile. If you want to stay in a great hotel in the center of Florence look no further. This is the best of the best and as I said in the beginning their hotel and service are both over the top!

Can't say enough about our 2 day stay at the Davanzati.Our room was beautiful.We had the deluxe junior suite and with 2 baths and 2 lofts it was perfect for a family of 4 to spread out.
The location is close to all sites and the value for this great location is good.
Fabrizio and his team are wonderful hosts.We loved the happy hour.

Hotel Davanzati lived up to all our expectations.... and more. The location is perfect and the staff helpful and friendly. The little extras like the wine in our room for our anniversary and the free drinks during happy hour made it an unforgettable holiday. We will most definitely return.
