“A great discovery”
Reviewed 29 June 2012

The staff and management of this hotel go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We really appreciated the complimentary drinks and snacks in the garden when we returned from our day of sightseeing. The hotel is slightly away from the main tourist areas but that can be an advantage after a day immersed in the crowds of central Florence. We chose to walk to the main sites but the bus stop is just outside the door and staff at the hotel will sell you bus tickets and explain where to get off. The hotel is also close to the Piazzele Michelangiolo, with its fabulous views of the city. Leafy streets surround this area and give a completely different view of Florence. The rooms are nice but it's the service that really sets this hotel apart. Convenient parking, a laundry rooms, free internet and international calls, free snacks and drinks in your room, and the most friendly and helpful staff. Enjoying a glass of prosecco in the garden was the perfect end to our stay.

Not right in the middle of Florence but only a 15 minute walk to the Uffizi. The breakfast was good and you could sit outside if you wish. The happy hour at 630 pm in the eve offered some wine and treats to get you started. The rooms were nice with original Italian tile and upgraded baths. A nice family run place.

Room Tip: Street side can be a bit of a hum at night if you are there on the weekend.

This hotel was perfect for our stay. We love love loved the happy hour in the evenings. It was also fun to mingle with other guests from all over the world. Anything you need, they were happy to assist with. The room was great too. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when returning to Florence.

Sometimes when I read great reviews on trip advisor, I take everything with a grain of salt. I'm glad to say I booked my stay in Florence at Hotel David. I'm sitting at theIr courtyard right now, pleasantly enjoying their happy hour under the warm Tuscan sun. This place is simply beautiful and the location is great.

The staff has been super helpful and friendly, even helping us send our postcards. They gave us info on a local shopping centre in the area, where we shopped our little picnic meal. The rooms were large and comfortable. The complimentary services are just great, free wifi, mini bar, long distance call, amongst others.

I do look forward to coming back to Florence. And I would definitely stay at Hotel David again.

The hotel staff are the most friendly of any hotel in Italy! They really went out of their way to help us and make us feel welcome. They practically walked us to our bus stop, just to make sure we knew which bus to get on! They stayed late one night for us to finish our laundry because it was taking so long! Overall, the staff were just amazing. The rooms are very well kept and comfortable. There is a stocked mini bar, free of charge and free internet access as well as printing. Also, they have a small snack/drink area downstairs where you can grab sodas, waters, beer and so on. Then, you just write down your room number and what you took. This was super convenient and cheap compared to most places! The hotel is in a good location. The bus stop is right outside of the hotel, which is definitely convenient. We took the bus, for only around 1 euro per person, to the opposite side of Florence (by the duomo) and just made the walk back. This allowed us to hit as many sights as we wanted. I highly recommend Hotel David! We had a perfect stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 12. It has a nice balcony to spend your evenings on. Plus, there are rolling shu...

We seemed to be the only people staying here who had not stayed before and after our stay, knew why there were so many returnees. With his great sense of humor and good restaurant advice, Gabrielle (a) the owner, was a great host and he and his staff made this a special experience. He even came out to find us when we could not find the street to get to the hotel.

Breakfast, under the watchful eye of Maria is a treat with really fresh cakes among many offerings. This is not your typical Italian hotel breakfast.

We stayed here because we had a car but we will return, car or not because it felt like home.

The hotel is a very short bus ride away to central Florence but we liked being away from the tumult that is at the heart of the center of town.

We stayed here for 2 nights and everything was great. It is easy to understand why this hotel is so well rated. Great staff, rooms, breakfast, happy hours.. nothing much to add. If you are coming to florence you must stay at Hotel David.
