4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I have trouble sleeping when it's too warm... just a fan would've gone a long way to remedy this issue. Other than that, the room was very nice, the bathroom very modern and updated. Had a view of the center courtyard but at night the sound did travel in since we had the bathroom window open. The odd layout issues... More

This is a difficult review to write for me because my comments are not directed to the staff who were very hard working, professional and lovely. But I think that there is no point in my taking time out to write a review unless I can be genuine. My overall feeling about Hotel Rivoli is simple - I felt the... More

Unfortunately Novermber in Florence is considered a WINTER month and there is no chance to have the AC on (unless if you have a private apartment). Considered the... More

There are large and inviting common areas including a bar/lounge complete with a very pleasant server who offers snacks with your evening cocktails.The outdoor courtyard and gardens are lovely and very inviting after a long day of...

Just stayed at the Hotel Rivoli a few weeks ago for 4 days. We arrived in the late afternoon/early evening of the first day in Florence. The room was dark and dreary. At first glance it seems to be relatively clean. Then, after being in the room for an hour or so, we noticed there were flying gnats. We notified... More

Wow this hotel was so good. Easy walking distance to train station, very central. Walking distance to Il Duomo. Close to the markets. The Hotel had wonderful helpful staff, they all spoke English. The rooms had a very long bath, which was fantastic after a long day of lots of walking. We even had a terrace, with table and chairs.... More

Two blocks from the train station, this charming hotel is well situated and very well arranged. Rooms and furnishings great, wifi wonderful, breakfast excellent and dinner the best in town, maybe the best meal in Italy. Bathrooms lovely. Would stay again in a minute. Front desk reserved but very helpful and kind.

We stayed at the Hotel Rivoli for 2 nights after a cruise. The location in Florence was perfect. Easy walk from the train station and to all the sights. We had a lovely room with a balcony on the 3rd floor over looking the garden. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2014

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.
