Travel Blogs from Florence
Our final day in Florence. We started it with the Pitti Palace museum. It is the largest museum complex in Florence. It is comprised of several galleries - the ones we visited were the Palatine Gallery, Royal Apartments, Gallery of Modern Art, Porcelain Museum and the Costume Gallery. It was exhausting! The building itself is a work of art with …

With the Florence card, the public transportation system is included in the cost. Our hotel is 20 minute walk from the old city center, so we asked the hotel staff for directions to the bus stop (look for the 'D' bus 50 meters to the right of …
First I must start by wishing our dog, Aspen, a happy 4th birthday! I'm sure Andy's sister, Brenda and her husband Dwight made Aspen's day special.
Our first full day in Florence! We started with a buffet breakfast in the 1st floor breakfast room. It included eggs,bacon, yogurt, croissants (with chocolate in the middle!) and fresh orange …
We set out for the town of San Gimignano. This medieval town is known for it's 14 towers (which once numbered 72) and were once symbols of power & wealth. Once upon a time it was an Etruscan village. We decided to take a chance with all the luggage in the car and go for a walk in town. The parking area at the bottom of the town was secured with …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel David Florence
Family friendly hotel.
A great little hotel, with friendly, helpful staff and a large comfortable family room (shower only). We would stay there again.
Nice, quaint, hotel
We stayed at Hotel David Oct 2002 and we loved our stay there. It is a small hotel, almost has a B &B feel to it. The two gentlemen that worked there, one in the morning, one in the evening, were very helpful and friendly. We were greeted every morning and every evening as we came in from a long day of siteseeing. We had a quad room and it was perfect in size. There are not many rooms in the hotel and each room has it's own unique sense of decor. I would definitely stay there again.
Extraordinarily helpful staff
We LOVED this hotel. Perhaps a 20 minute walk from the major tourist sites, but for us that was a plus, as the neighborhood was relatively quiet and on a beautiful, tree-lined street. Local bus service is just a few steps from the hotel when the walk becomes tiresome.
Rooms were beautifully appointed and quite large by European standards, with air conditioning that WORKED (no small consideration this summer).
We were traveling by car, and the hotel has on-site parking, which made it easier for us to take our excursions into the surrounding area.
Most important, the staff was unfailingly polite, helpful and genuinely eager to go the extra mile for guests. The rates were also quite reasonable. I would and will stay at this hotel again.
Nice little hotel
Hotel David is a pleasant, small hotel located close to the historical center of town. The rooms are attractive and the staff is most helpful. It is in a quiet location with room to park your car.
