A fine fine property in the Santa Maria Novella area of the city; almost a neighborhood in itself with excellent restaurants, easy walk to the Duomo & city center. A room with an interior terrace was excellent. Most attentive staff. A breakfast so good (try their famous hot chocolate) that non guests come there for the start of the day.

Where do I start. The outstanding friendly, helpful hotel staff. The excellent restaurant with great Florentine cuisine. The garden patio at the restaurant. The wonderful Breakfast. The excellent, friendly, professional restaurant service staff. The garden patio area at the hot tub, where wine and spirits are served. The exquisite modern rooms. It was all luxurious.

My wife and I trained to Florence and thoroughly enjoyed our stay/experience at Hotel Rivoli. The staff were friendly and purposefully helpful, the room spotless and breakfast was wonderful! Also, in walking distance of train station and many restaurants/cafe. Will stay again when in Florence!

This hotel was the perfect choice for our visit to Florence a few weeks ago. The location was perfect. Steps from the train station and 5 minute walk to the Duomo and all the popular tourist sites. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were unique but very clean. Breakfast was excellent with a choice of hot... More

A great base for exploring Florence. The hotel is close to the station, with many restaurants and cafés close by. It is within walking distance of the major sights of the city. The interior is beautifully decorated, and there is a lovely lounge for relaxing in. The bar is good with a wide range of drinks to tempt you. Breakfast... More

Dear Guest, thanks for spending here those nice words on our house. The origin of this hotel in fact is a XIVth century convent and we try to keep the "original" relaxing charme of the building. I'm really glad you appreciated it. We all hope to welcome you again at the Rivoli, and we greet you with our sincere Arrivederci... More

Excellent hotel that could be a five star . I can find no fault with this establishment. Breakfast was plentiful and fresh. Service was great. Room was spotless and cleaned every day. Very quiet. My best recommendation.

This hotel was a gem in Florence. it is a quaint hotel with many interesting rooms and features. The staff was very helpful when I had to remake reservations for our airline tickets allowing me to use the computer to print boarding passes, etc. The breakfast buffet was good, with just enough variety to make the start of the day...

A short walk from the train station this wonderful old building offered charm and a beautiful room. The common areas were very pretty and provided an at home feel. Frustrating to pay for internet but still a good value hotel with an excellent breakfast and friendly staff. Went out of their way to assist us with a tour booking. Very... More
