We stayed for two days and this place was lovely. It's about a 20 minute walk down the river from the centre of the city or 5 minutes if you use the tram (which no one ever seems to pay for). Unusual for Italy, but this place forgoes the chintz and tat for tasteful minimalist style. Daily maid service with... More

We stayed in loft number 7, a deluxe suite, as a treat for two nights at the end of our honeymoon. If you book a deluxe suite, request the other one! The room was an austere and cold concrete box with little light. There was no sofa and only two spindly chairs to sit on if you want to watch... More

The room was amazing with a great view of the Arno River! The breakfast was really nice and the staff were excellent in helping give advice on where to go and what to do! The pool was quiet small but still nice for a quick swim!

Lovely area of solitude, guaranteed to be surrounded by only a small number of delightful other people. Luxury standard of accommodation. We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith but found it not to the same standard as their usual hotels. The staff were less engaging than usual and in particular the breakfast was not the standard we've had anywhere else... More

Riva Loft, well suited on the south side of Arno River in Florence, is beautifully crafted with every attention to details. It's a sanctuary away from the tourist trips and close to local restaurants. They also have bikes-to ride to city center it's about 15 minute bike ride or a short taxi ride. It has a swimming pool, a common... More

This is a special place - the architecture is stunning. The studios are high ceilinged, the ambience relaxed but cool. It is expensive but you get extravagant space for your money. We had a lovely canopied bed in our studio. The studios can get quite hot but the air conditioning is by the bed and is welcome. The bicycles provided... More

Very charming and relaxing boutique hotel very close to the ancient part of Florence. Beautiful garden and pool area, very spacious and beautifully designed rooms. Only negative point was that the AC did not work at its max, so the room was a little sticky.

Beautiful hotel... but you must walk through the ghetto to get to the beauty of Florence. Don't judge Florence by the space between the Tram pick-up and drop-off. Find a hotel in Santa Croce, somewhere near Duomo and the leather market on the other-side of the river.

We recently stayed at Riva Lofts in Florence, Italy. The rooms were large and beautiful and the staff were exceptionally nice and helpful. There is a tram station very near the lofts which takes you to downtown Florence (just three stops away). The hotel is next to the Arno River and across from a huge park. Because it is slightly...

Just outside the historic centre (10 mins by bikes, provided by the hotel, complimentary), the property is beautiful, along the river Arno. Lots of complimentary amenities, great advices from the staff, we should have stayed there the entire week (instead of spending any time at the Westin) This si clearly for the discerning traveller... so all those who are looking...
