My bride of 30 years and I took a vacation to Italy and celebrated our anniversary at the Hotel Davanzati in Florence - it did not disappoint! All of the reviews are true!
I started planning this trip 10 months in advance and booked this hotel about 7-8 months in advance. The hotel could not have been more helpful and accommodating in preparing for our trip, helping us book reservations, recommending restaurants and so forth. The rooms are great! The breakfast is excellent! The service is phenomenal (and I worked for 5 star hotels for years). I only wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel has a fantastic location in the old part of the city.
When my wife and I got back from the trip we talked about which hotel and which city was our favorite of the vacation (kind of like asking what's your favorite color) - but in this case, Florence and the Hotel Davanzati were absolutely our favorite city and hotel.
Fabrizio was a veritable fount of information - consistently helpful with a desire to make every question easily solved. His son Tommaso was supremely helpful with our emailed questions and museum reservations. As the website says Marcello, the patriarch was the most charming.
We would recommend to anyone and we will be back!
