We spent a week at the Riva Lofts and really enjoyed our stay. It was close to the Paolo Uccello tram stop, only 3 stops away from Florence's main train station, so it made getting there easy. The location could be seen as a positive or negative; it is a very quiet, peaceful place, away from the crowds of the... More

We spent four glorious days at Riva Lofts and it was just prefect in every way. The location is great, away from the madding crowds, yet within waking (or cycling on bikes provided free) distance of the city centre. We used the impressive tram system a lot; so easy and convenient with a stop at the end of the road... More

This place is absolutely beautiful. Our room was large and designed with considerable taste and thoughtfulness. The hotel has easy access to the trolley that takes you to the train station and the middle of Florence. The concierge gave us excellent recommendations for restaurants and activities, including restaurants that catered mainly to locals. The continental breakfasts were delicious and freshly... More

Riva is an absolutely fantastic place to stay in Florence. The location is very quiet and relaxing while being only steps from a short tram ride to the heart of the city. The building is filled with amazing architectural features and room designs that you will not find anywhere else making Riva a unique and wonderful destination. The first class... More

Riva Lofts is a lovely place to stay whilst visiting Florence. It is as the description says on the outskirts which makes extra special because you are staying away from the crowds. It is a easy walk in on a fine day, or a convenient tram ride on a wet one, into the city to see the amazing sights of... More
