  • Couple

    The staff were very friendly and helpful although when I asked how far to Galileo airport I was told half an hour, it was actually 1 1/2 hours away!! Happy hour was an added bonus, free wine and snacks. The room we stayed in was a bit dated although some of the rooms the cleaners were attending to looked much nicer. Breakfast could have been a bit more interesting. Main sitting areas were very nice. Far away from the city centre - a swift 20 minute walk. Lovely hotel for honeymooners who would love to take their time, enjoy the sitting areas, free wine and stay for a whole week!!

    Hotel David exceeded my expectations in every way. The building was beautiful, well cared for, with flowers and great views of Florence and its surrounding neighborhoods. The staff was friendly and familiar, both professional and accommodating at the same time. I would give this hotel my highest recommendation for anyone traveling to Florence. Trust me, you will love Hotel David. Kevin Matson, Media Borough, PA.

    The Hotel should be proud of the work they do, no complaints whatsoever.

    A wonderful hotel. Happy hour was good - free wine and snacks. Also, everything aleady in the mini bar when you arrive is free - what a lovely idea! All the staff were very helpful and incredibly friendly.

    Location excellent, especially if you have a car and want to avoid the craziness of navigating busy Florence streets - easy 15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio along the Arno RIver; Staff friendly; Free parking; room spotless and comfortable; breakfast (delicious), wifi, computer, all included at not extra charge. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others as a quiet, friendly place to use as a base for Florence sightseeing.

    This was our favourite hotel in 5 weeks of travelling in the UK, France and Italy. We had 4 of us in the room, but it was so spacious that we did not feel at all overcrowded. Everything was nice - the bathroom, the breakfast and the staff, and we would recommend this hotel.

    It is a little out of town (1-1.5 kms' walk from the Oltrarno or city centre) and the little buses which you can use easily during the day did not run in the evening.

    The view of St Peters Basilica

    The breakfast was very poor. Coffee was cold (notwithstanding that I brought this to their attention) and food was very average. Further, there was a mix-up by hotel staff. I had pre-paid for the room and they tried to convince me that I had only paid for one night. It was sorted out but not very professional.

    The staff was extremely helpful and very welcoming. We enjoyed the apertif hour and also loved the common rooms. We were very comfortable here.

    Loved everything!

    Had a real shower rather than one in a bath, a short walk to public transport and cafes, near to the old part of Florence. Hotel offered a free 10 minute phone call, to some overseas places, each day of your stay. Also you could empty the minibar in your room once for free. 2 nice touches. Parking free onsite, but only a few spaces.

    We had trouble finding the hotel as the GPS couldn't fix an address, phoned for directions but got told to stop at a bar and ask? Eventually parked the car on a footpath and looked for it on foot, spent a couple of hours until I spotted the sign on the fence. Very noisy at night, into the early morning, with lots of people in those close cafes.

    Excellant location within easy walking distance to most sights in Florence. Rooms are sizable, and well presented. Free Car parking is provided at the location, (although I did receive a scrape on the hire car whilst parked there.)

    The hotel itself was very charming. The staff was helpful and the breakfast was lovely. It is in a great location just outside the city with parking available if you have a car. It was perfect for us.

  • Family with children

    It was a great experience to be there. People at desk is friendly and looking to help and serve. They have nice surprises for you when you check in (i.e.. the first mini bar is free...). It is not the cheapest but it worth it.

    The laundry is small and slow machines, so use it for few cloth (well, they have this service..). The parking is inside the hotel, but it is small..
