Although installed inside a historic building, the Davanzati never rests on its medieval laurels: There is still a laptop in every room for guest use and HD movies streamed to your TV, and lobby newspapers now come on an iPad. Rooms are simply decorated in the Tuscan style, with color-washed walls; half-canopies over the beds add a little flourish. Room 100 is probably the best family hotel room in Florence, full of nooks, crannies, and split levels that give the adults and the kids a sense of private space. The complimentary evening drink for all guests remains part of the Davanzati’s family welcome.
