“One More Time”
Reviewed 21 July 2010

We are on our fifth visit to Florence and will stay for the fifth time at Hotel Davanzati! We consider this hotel "a home away from home." Each yearly visit has offered us the opportunity to enjoy Florence and it's rich culture, people and quality of life. This exerience has been addictive for my husband and myself. My favorite memory is looking into David's eyes; sculpted hearts appear in his pupils. Michaelangelo conveyed that David had a heart for God! Thanks to the Cayla familia , Fibrezio, Tommas your team work has brought us tranquillity staying at your charming hotel. Serreala

Stayed here with my husband and daughter and was a bit distraught at trying to find the hotel and driving in Florence. We were immediately welcomed by Fabrizio who kindly told us where we could drop our car off and stored our bags until we returned. Fabrizio and his family were so wonderful throughout our 4 night stay. He recommended wonderful restaurants to dine at and took care of all of the guests. The happy hour was a nice time to relax before dinner and chat with fellow tourists. We had a very early flight and the hotel arranged early checkout and taxi for us with ease.

We stayed four nights and found the hotel location was perfectly located in a reasonably quiet Street within walking distance of the Santa maria Novella train station, Uffizi museum, Ponte Vecchio bridge, shops, eating places etc
The Hotel entrance is easily missed as it is up a narrow set of stairs to a lift.
The Hotel rooms and facilities were good.
The Hotel has a happy hour each evening which is a great way to meet other travelers.
Fabrizio at the front desk was exceptionally courteous and helpful

I used this hotel due to the positive reviews on Trip Advisor and it lived up to them - and more! For a start the staff are so friendly and helpful - we went on this trip to Florence to celebrate my partner's 50th Birthday and it was a surprise trip for her. I had asked if it would be possible to have flowers and pink champagne in the room on our arrival and, sure enough, it was there.
The room was very clean and has a character that embodies the best of Florence. The private balcony just adds that bit extra too, as does the free 'happy hour' where you get entertained with pre-dinner drinks etc.
The hotel is nice and quiet and yet so close to all of the superb sights of Florence. We availed ourselves of the offer to reserve tickets for two of the galleries and this saved us hours of queuing.
All I can say to summarise the Davanzati - great location, great service, great rooms and can't wait for our next visit.

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.
