“A great hotel and one that we would stay in again”
Reviewed 10 July 2010

Upon arrival at the Hotel Davanzati, we were welcomed by Fabrizio with jokes and laughter. He was a wealth of information throughout our stay, and we felt extremely comfortable asking him for advice and recommendations. Fabrizio even sent a bottle of Chianti to our room to congratulate us on our honeymoon. The rooms were quite spacious, and the bathroom was the biggest that we encountered during our trip. Our room had an exposed brick wall that was actually part of one of the old city towers...very beautiful! Breakfast was nice! There was a variety of pastries, breads, and cereals offered, in addition to ham, cheese, and a bowl of fruit. Afternoon happy hours were a highlight. It was a nice way to transition from sight-seeing mode. The staff and family were friendly and eager to help.

We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again! Thank you Fabrizio and Family!

I have stayed at Hotel Davanzati several times within the past couple of years, and each visit has been equally enjoyable. Fabrizio and family are friendly, efficient and helpful - and genuinely lovely people. The rooms are nice, comfortable and always immaculate. The happy hour is a fun social event which has given me the opportunity to meet interesting travelers. The central location is great and makes visiting the sites of Florence extremely convenient. My cousin and I will be vacationing in Italy this September, and we are very much looking forward to our stay at Hotel Davanzati during our time in Florence.

Our family of 5 just stayed at the Davanzati and have nothing but great things to say about our stay. Great location, fabulous hospitality and the Junior suite with two lofts for our 3 children was excellent - read all the reviews the stay will be as good as you get in a beautiful city.

We got a recommendation and booked this small, boutique hotel. We loved it. The staff was fantastic and they have a great happy hour with wine, cheese etc. Its a great way to wrap up the afternoon. The room was small but clean and we would go back without hesitation.

We were on our honeymoon and one of our friends recommended this hotel in florence and since it gave great reviews i had book this hotel. When we arrive we already knew about the stairs so we rang the bell and the porter came down to carry our luggage up the stairs. We met Fabrizio and he was lovely and he gave us a choice of 2 rooms since we were on our honeymoon. He gave us a map and showed us where to go for the sights, pre-book tickets at the Ulfizzi and the Galleria of Academia, book us a 13hr Walkabout - Best of Tuscany tour which was fabulous. The tour took us to Siena, lunch at a farm, wine tasting, Pisa and San Gimignano.
We also remember the bed in our hotel room was one of the best we slept on while were in Europe. We also had a free laptop which we could use at no extra cost. That was handy when we wanted to use the internet.
Breakfast was ok but it was very similar to what all the other hotels around Italy offered.
The location was great and was not far at all to the sights of florence.
Would recommend this hotel to my friends.

I stayed with my wife in June 2010 for 4 nights -- The hotel location is great ,very central but thats about all.It is on the first floor which can be approached only by walking up a narrow very steep flight of steps - after a long day returning back with the task of then climbing up the stairs is not what one looks forawrd to.The breakfast was terrible all four days -- the croissants were stale & the fruit laid out on the platter must have been weeks old & had starting rotting with white fungus on most of them . Rooms were only cleaned & made at around 4 pm every day & the linen was not changed daily.Had to ask the staff to replace the bath soap & gel as they seem to conviently forget to replinish. There is no restaurant .The price being charged isequivalent to an international rated 4 star hotel whereas you only get a Bed & Breakfast place of cleanliness , service & facilities of a 2 star hotel. Guests book in this hotel based on TripAdvisors reviews which are totally misleading .Would never return or recommend this hotel to anyone.
