We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location was perfect, as it was close to both the train station and the Duomo. We also really enjoyed the hotel restaurant. The jacuzzi looked great, but we didn't get a chance to use it. The breakfast was very good here too.

I have to say that the staff for the most part is nice. I had a lot of trouble with the wifi connection and the wifi seemed to only work in the lobby. The two rooms my family and I had were very small. We could hear everything in the hallways. The first night stay was decent and my second... More

This hotel used to be a monastery. Beautiful courtyard! Has a nice little pool/jacuzzi! The location couldn't be any better! Close to the train station, easy walking to all of the sites. The room was huge! Nice big bed, beautiful window overlooking the courtyard. The service was great! Very helpful, you can tell they love where they work. I tell... More

A group of us stayed here for 4 nights while in Italy in May-June. We had a lovely room in the corridor off the restaurant area. It had a charming little terrace that was partioned off from the outdoor seating of the restaurant by plants. Nice and quiet when the restaurant was closed. The hotel was very clean, the staff...

We chose this hotel for its close proximity to train station and the its central location to the heart of the city. We were not disappointed with this hotel's decor and ambiance. It has an excellent restaurant, very good service and is reasonably priced. A lovely continental breakfast is included. We were very satisfied with the cleanliness, efficiency, price and... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Rivoli for 9 nights as part of a music festival. There were 24 people in our group. In comparison to other hotels of his level in Florence, I believe we struck the jackpot. Originally built in the 1300's as a Franciscan Convent, the building has been modernized while retaining many charming features including central... More

We only booked this hotel the night before we arrived and we were not disappointed! As an old monastery, the hotel has a lot of character and combines the old with the new very well. The rooms are a good size, however, the location of the hotel is perfect for those travelling by train as it is about a 3... More

This is a 14th century Franciscan convent restored to a wonderful, exquisite hotel. When you stay here you feel like you are staying in Florence (Firenze). The rooms overlook the beautiful patio and view of the terra cotta tile roofs give the feel of Italy. The rooms are comfortable with arch doorways and reflect the beautiful history but with all...

Such a lovely place to call home! We stayed there as part of a choral group last week, and the staff and facilities were wonderful! The large contingent of Americans for this choral week stayed in several hotels in the area...however, I think ours was the best because it felt uniquely Tuscan. When I come to a country, I want...

We stayed at the hotel for 10 days and from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast buffet was excellent and we would recommend the hotel restaurant for dinner. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean and had a beautiful balcony over looking the garden.
