Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.

Perfect location. Very reasonable rates - that include breakfast and a daily ‘happy hour’ for guests!

Leonardo was exceptionally friendly and helpful with all our questions and very responsive to whatever we needed. The Davanzati will be at the top of our list for a return visit to Florence.

The location of this place is simply amazing! You can’t be more central and close to everything you want to see and do in Florence! Although it’s located in an old Palace (next to Palazzo Davanzatti itself) the rooms are very modern and well equipped. We had a family room which was very spacious and had a small divide between the main room and the kids room. Aircon works wonderfully which is also very important on hot August days
Due to Covid hotel can’t offer bugger breakfast but you can preorder all the food in advance and have it either in your room or in the restaurant. It’s a good selection of continental breakfast with fresh coffee and juice
As hotel is in the pedestrian area- you still can arrive by car . Hotel arranged valet parking for us for €26 a day as we needed our car later to travel to the airport
Great place and great location!

This was my third stay in Florence and my third hotel. I typically like to stay in boutique hotels with a family vibe and this hotel didn’t disappoint. Matter of fact, I was originally booked at the sister hotel (Hotel Boccaccio) but had to change my reservation. Hotel Davanzati moved by reservation without any problem and even allowed me to stay in a larger room at my original booking price. The hotel staff (Cosini?, Leonardo, to name a few) were extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating in every way.
The room we had was very large, street side, with two big windows. It could get noisy at times, but the window is double paned and a noise maker is provided. The bathroom was very large with tub/shower, bidet, shelves, hairdryer, and towel warmer.
You could choose your breakfast time and menu each day and it was delightful. Nothing warm to eat, but the chocolate croissants, yogurt, meat/cheese, and fresh juices hit the spot. The cappuccinos were amazing, and the espresso jumped started your day.
We never rent a car, so location of our hotel is very important. Hotel Davanzati is located in the middle of city center. Five minutes from the train station (10Euros for taxi), five-minute walk to all the piazzas, Ponte Vecchio, many restaurants, shops, and grocery store. We walk everywhere, so this hotel was perfect for us. There are 26 steps that you must climb to get to the elevator, but it didn’t bother us. You can also ring the bell, and someone will come down to carry your bags up if needed.

We stayed here for five nights and loved it! I highly recommend Hotel Davanzati and look forward to returning in the future.

The staff at Hotel Davanzati were every bit as friendly and helpful as advertised in the earlier reviews! They gave us great recommendations for restaurants and shopping near the hotel and answered any random questions we had. A few minor issues in our room were fixed promptly after we mentioned them, and they carried both of our 40+ pound bags up and down the big staircase to the street upon our arrival and departure.

We also loved the nightly happy hours and had some great chats with fellow travelers!

The hotel is in the heart of Florence, about a 5-minute walk from both the Uffizi and the Duomo. The Accademia Gallery and main train station are about 15 minute walks (but definitely spring for the ~11 euro cab ride from the station if you have heavy bags like we did). Be aware that the location has a tradeoff: it’s a lively neighborhood, and you may hear noise from the street very late at night. The hotel provides a white noise machine in your room to help with this, and we’d also recommend having good earplugs.

Overall, we had an outstanding experience at Hotel Davanzati, and we would definitely stay there again whenever we are next in Florence.

Set in an historic building the hotel Davazati offers first class and comfortable accomodation. The room was excellent- spacious & spotlessly clean .and I loved the shuttered windows ! The hotel is set on the upper two floors of the building so there is a flight of steps before you get to the lift which takes you to reception. The hotel is very welcoming,mask wearing obligatory in communal areas & no happy hour during these covid times.
Breakfast is table service &served very reasonably till 1030am. The hotel.is brilliantly situated ..around five minutes walk from all the main sights. As a solo traveller I also appreciated that the location is on an upmarket street with a couple of great bistros across the road. Will return !

This hotel is a hidden gem tucked away right in the historic centre of Florence down a quiet side street.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming and provided great service at breakfast which was served at tables because of the covid situation. It was a continental style breakfast with some local offerings thrown in. If there's one suggestion I'd make it would be to offer some fresh fruit options at breakfast but I realise that might not be possible because of covid.

The room was comfortable with very effective air conditioning (much needed in the heat!) and absolutely spotlessly clean. WiFi also worked well.

The biggest selling point is the location which is central but quiet enough to get a good night's sleep.

I'd also flag the very nice staff. Everyone seemed to be enjoying their jobs which is great to see.

I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting fabulous Florence!

This is a charming small, family owned boutique hotel in a great centralized location. The rooms were super clean. Heated towel racks, air conditioning great breakfast and happy hour. The shower/bathrooms were small but great water pressure. The staff is the friendliest you will ever meet. They arranged for a private driver to take us to a winery, called for a taxi to take us to the train station and answered out endless questions. The private driver (with a Mercedes van) was so friendly, accommodating and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Attention to detail is what sets this place apart. Don't hesitate to book if there is availability. There is a reason that this hotel has a 5 out of 5 with almost 4000 reviews. Have you seen that before? I can't say I have with that many reviews! Simply spectacular!

The family owned business truly knows their business. It is run with care, precision and dedication. We stayed during the pandemic, in November 2021. Extreme care was taken with regard to masks, cleanliness and breakfast service. There is a notice on their website about climbing stairs, one long flight of steps. If this is not a problem, don’t sleep on this hidden gem. The entry way to the hotel is through a open entryway, street level, where guest must walk up the flight. Once you have arrived, you’ll definitely realize you have chosen well. Breakfast was plentiful and the cozy room that it is served in makes one feel at home.

Arriving at the street-level doorway to the Davanzati Hotel, the visitor is faced with 22 steep steps up to the elevator to the lobby but it’s worth the climb – or you can ring for someone to come down and help. You don’t need a car here (there’s nowhere to put it) because this is downtown Florence, a short and interesting walk to everywhere that matters : Signoria, Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, and good restaurants by the score (notably the excellent Hostaria il Desco just around the corner). There was an imaginative way around the complications of Covid at breakfast-time. The location alone makes the Davanzati a winner but it also offers spotlessly clean rooms, exceptionally helpful and friendly staff, extremely competitive rates (especially off-season, a good time to go) and beds to tempt you to sleep in when you know you should be out admiring more of this endlessly beautiful city. You may want to ask for a room with a window you can open; ours couldn’t. But otherwise, perfect.

We stayed at the Davanzati in October 2021. We had been travelling in Europe and we had seen how many of our favourite spots had been adversely affected or closed by Covid. We were worried that the Davanzati might also be negatively affected. To our relief the things that we like most about this family run hotel have remained the same. The location is great, the staff (including Fabrizio, Ricardo, Tomas, and Leonardo) strive to provide you with the best service and the facilities are very clean.

During our stay there were some concessions to Covid rules. To manage numbers under the Covid rules we were required to select our food choices and book a specific period for breakfast in the morning. That did not stop them from serving us great cappuccini. The evening “Happy Hour” was not open due to the Covid restrictions. These were similar to restrictions we encountered elsewhere in Italy. I hope that with declining case numbers these restrictions will soon be lifted.

Otherwise, things were very familiar and pleasant. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Canadians are required to have a PCR test before returning home. The staff tracked down a clinic that could do a PCR test within the time constraints and when the on-line registration failed, they intervened over the phone to get us booked and tested. For Americans, the easier antigen test was readily available nearby.

Florence was remarkedly busy compared to other European cities we visited on our trip. Despite the city being so busy the folks at Davanzati recommended and were able to successfully book excellent restaurants. I suggest that you consider sending an email to the Davanzati or giving them a call before you arrive to get some recommendations and have them make reservations in advance. They made reservations for us at Vini E Vecchi Sapori, Caffe Cibreo and Natalino. We still have to try Osteria dell'Enoteca, Trattoria Moderna and (if we are feeling flush) Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura.

The location is ideal - close to the Ponte Vecchio, the Piazza Repubblica and the Piazza della Signoria. You can walk to all the wonderful sights. They have maps and good suggestions at the front desk. Have a great stay.
