Small hotel very close to the train station and central Florence. It was only a short walk to the hotel and we passed it the first time so keep a sharp eye out! Very nice bar within 2 doors and excellent restaurants within 2 blocks. Would definately recommend.

This is a nice hotel - room was small but bathroom great! People at reception were a tad arrogant and that was a shame as we hadn't really encountered too much of the spoken about Italian arrogance until we stayed here. Having said that the ladies in the breakfast room very lovely and the porter was very helpful (just not... More

Well located near the train station in Florence! With great bar almost next door and a few good restaurants within walking distance. The quickest check-in I've experienced on this trip ever - like 2 mins, so the staff where really helpful and knowledgeable. The a good size elevator, the room size was just a bit small but acceptable, the bathroom... More

Hotel Rivoli is a small hotel in an excellent location for walking/sightseeing. The lobby lounge is comfortable altho not big but there is another small sitting area and a lovely "living room" type room which is very quiet and attractive. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful altho their English ability varies. The buffet breakfast is plentiful and the dining... More

Of the hotels I've stayed at in Italy, this is my favorite. It's an easy walk to the railroad station and central Florence. The desk staff was helpful and the ground floor offered a very nice common area -- well, several actually -- with an excellent restaurant. My room had a walk-in closet with some sort of pant-pressing thingamabob, plus... More

Dear Guest, thanks for the nice comment. I'm really glad you appreciated our services. I agree with you when you say the Benedicta is really an excellent restaurant and breakfast lounge. Concerning your question about Bidet... I confirm that this "thing" is totally part of the Italian culture and probably you will find it in all Italian Hotels and private... More

Dear Dee, thanks for your impressions on the Rivoli. From over 50 years we try to give our guests the best of our attentions. The building is a fourteeen century convent an this makes the difference and sometimes is not appreciated by guests used to modern hotels. The location of the Rivoli then makes the difference.... walking distance to train... More

Very pleasant stay at this centrally located hotel. Excellent breakfast included with stay. Great courtyard for a late evening drink. Terrific staff. Within walking distance of all the major sites including Piazza Del Duomo, Galleria dell'Accademia and Piazza Della Signoria.

We had a very nice stay at Hotel Rivoli. It is a modern hotel with a good location in a quiet neighborhood, close to the train station and all the sites. Our room was spacious and had a refrigerator, separate desk/work space, comfortable pull out couch and large bathroom. The bar area is a nice place to sit and have... More

I was a little skeptical when coming down the street to the hotel, but that changed when we checked in. First, they were happy to upgrade our room at no cost and also gave us a tour of other available rooms. They then greeted our toddler with an awesome gift bag for kids. The room and bath were clean, spacious... More

In the hearth of Florence an elegant place that can be easily called "temporary home". The staff is very kind and professional and always ready to help! Thank you all! We specially loved the two gardens and the jacuzzi: so much green in the hearth of the city! Our room was spacious and quiet and had a big balcony with... More
