We are regular travellers who use Trip adviser to find hotels.
After reading Florence hotel reviews the Davanatzi sounded good , except we are aged in our thirties !
For younger ones , this hotel ranked No.2 would probably be fair ,as it has all those steps and it is well located with lots of action and noise all around ! If you want to rage and drink and socialise all night !
We wanted to do more sightseeing of museums and touring ,thus, needed sleep, which we did not get at this hotel, so we moved out.
We carefully researched other options , and discovered Hotel Boticelli,
ranked down at number 52 .!
It is also only 3 stars ,and was centrally located also only 5 minutes from the Duomo.
For hotels here, you need to request a room at the back , as there are many bars on every street.This hotel had no street at the back, so that part was quiet and we slept liked perfectly. Also the Boticelli hotel amenities and staff were excellent
There are heaps of other hotels here, so, be specific of your requirements when you book, because being at he top of Trip Advisers ranking ,I now discovered, does not mean the hotel will be good for everyone.
I might say, this is the first occasion TA has let us down !
On this trip ,we used the No.1 ranking hotel in Istanbul , Goreme, and
Ghent , so far and hey we're all good
