The Best Overall...No Competition

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 14, 2013

We have stayed with this establishment many times. Initially, it was because they have free parking but it has become our absolute favorite anywhere/anytime !!

The staff, the accommodation [and now with an entire new floor on top!!], the breakfast room, the location....I could go on and on. You need to try it yourself in order to become a recruit....and, believe me, you will.

Unique Quality: See above

Directions: On the Oltrarno side of the river....walk two bridges east of the Ponte Vecchio and, at the back of the tiny park....behind the wall and gates...is Hotel David.

Florence's Best Hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 23, 2010

My husband and I stayed at the hotel 4 years ago and loved it, so when I planned our family trip with daughters, son in law and grandchildren we booked it on our way out of Florence for
two nights. It was just as we remembered. Very large rooms, very clean and beautifully decorated - we all loved the shower and the free parking for our 2 rental cars (which is unheard of in Florence). Also, they have snacks, wine and Hors d'euvres every evening at 6:30 or so. The staff is very helpful and pleasant, free internet is also available plus the breakfast (which wasn't as good as years past but still its free). I love the "left bank" of the Arno - it is not as hectic as the other side and is a short pleasant walk to the Ponte Vecchio or a 5 minute bus ride. They have great restaurants on this side and some of the best gelato in the free world. Would recommend it to anyone and have done so many times.

Unique Quality: The location, free parking, the room size and bathroom size and cleanliness.

Directions: If you go to the Piazza Michangelo and follow the Viale Michelangelo sign when exiting you will arrive at the hotel, #1 Viale Michelangelo on your right.

Great place - just off downtown

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 18, 2008

We (self, wife and adult son) stayed for 3 days in August 2008. We picked this location after consulting other reviews by VT members and were quite pleased. Service was friendly and punctual. Our room, and the common areas, were tidy and nicely decorated. The hotel continues to offer a free wine & snack happy hour. They offer wireless throughout the hotel as well as providing a public use computer and a VOIP phone (free for 10 minutes/day/room). I was pleasantly surprised that these computer/communications services were included in the room price. I would have to note, though, that the overall price was much higher than reported in earlier reviews. We paid E155 per night for triple w. breakfast during August, the busy season.

Unique Quality: The location - just far enough away from the center of the city to be quiet and comfortable but within a 15 - 20 minute walk of most anything in the historic city center.

Directions: Southeast of the city center, just south of the Arno River.

Good Value and Even Better Service

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Eight of us stayed at the Hotel David from 19th until 22nd October 2007. Can't recommend this enough. After staying at a "functional" tourist hotel next to the "Tower" in Pisa this made a refreshing change. Although two bridges down from the Ponte Vecchio (15 minute stroll) this hotel is welcoming and roomy. The staff (and I mean all of them) were friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms are large and very clean. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. Even had a Happy Hour which was free. Just some red/white wine and nibbles but a nice touch. Within 50 metres in a regular "D" bus that pops you straight into the city and even ends up at the station if you want to use it to arrive or go home as we did. Cabs from the Station to the hotel was only 11 Euros between four of us so getting around was not expensive. They even gave a small discount to anyone called "David". Happy to be emailed with any questions. "A Presto"

Directions: South of Arno. Two bridges down from Ponte Vecchio. Close to Piazza Michelangelo for the best views of Florence

Fabulous Hotel in Firenze

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 20, 2007

Florence has a plethora of hotels to choose from so it can be a bit daunting trying to find the gem that lies in the sea of rocks. We found a lovely little hotel in Florence. It was a stone's throw from all the sights, in a slightly quieter area of town. The rooms are spacious and elegantly decorated, and eventhough they weren't particularly our style, they were very nice and clean. Rooms have A/C, which is vital in the summer and are fully sound-proofed. Also, for what is included, the price is exceptional. We will certainly stay here again.

Unique Quality: Relaxing Common Areas, Free Parking, A/C, Sound-proof rooms

Directions: Car: Certosa exit, Viale Michelangelo to Piazza Ferrucci
Bus: From Main train station, take bus nr. 23, D, or 13 to Piazza Ferrucci, cross the street to reach hotel.

Hotel David

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 1, 2006

Hotel David was in a great location for families. Close enough to the city to walk or short taxi, but far enough out of the crowds. It was located on the opposite side of the Arno, near Piazzele Michaelangelo. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were comfortable. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

Small 3 star hotel

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 27, 2004

Hotel David can be reached by car without hassle from the east and south. They have their own parking lot. We had no problem walking from the hotel to the Duomo area. The staff was great. They graciously helped with our baggage retrieval from Alitalia although we were spending only one night. The breakfast was good. The room was cool and had good beds. Some road noise could be heard but it was not at all a problem. A computer was available just off the lobby to check email and such. Great value. We reccommend Hotel David!!
