Nice place, good location only 4 tram stops away from the city center. I will come back. Very clean, decorated with contemporary taste. Fine large bed, large bathroom. Fast wifi. Unfortunately.... I have booked a studio de luxe. There is no window where I can actually look outside. The large window has opaque glass, I feel a bit claustrophobic, and... More

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Riva Lofts, and stayed for the weekend with our family (12 altogether). This hotel is amazing, so so pretty. It is like a little oasis in the city. We stayed in Loft 8, which was amazing. I think its the best hotel room we have ever stayed in. It was like... More

Stayed here for one night in May with my boyfriend. We originally wanted one of the loft rooms but they were all fully booked. We had a lovely deluxe room though which was very spacious only thing I didn't like about it was that it was cold and also the shower had no curtain or door and splashed water everywhere... More

We stayed at the Riva Lofts in Florence and we just loved it. The owners daughter Alice was just lovely and helpful. She was extremely welcoming and the actual lofts are just fantastic. They are a short walk to the trams to get in to the centre of Florence (max 10 min walk) which means you have a tranquel place... More

Just back from a week in Italy and spent three nights at Riva Lofts. We had a nice stay but there are certainly areas to improve on but I do think that there is a certain "Italian way" which is part of the charm. I found the room perfectly nice, and clean. Reception staff were very polite and helpful, and... More

The website made it look spacious and upscale but that was definitely not the case. This is a boutique hotel with lots of potential. It has a great location (with easy access to downtown) but it is clear the owners have not invested in the hotel and it is starting to get run down. (I have pictures I hope to... More

Riva lofts provided excellent service, great recommendations for restaurants, locations to visit and all on a provided map. Very detailed and personalised to what we needed. The room was comfortable but maybe in need of a little maintenance as our spa bath wasn't working but overall a great space. Breakfast was European style with breads, pastries, juice and coffee etc... More

Website and marketing of Riva Lofts Florence is deceiving. Even though it is pretty and spaces are well-designed, it lacks in BASIC aspects of hotels / apartments of this category and price-range: 1. Cleanliness. We found spiderwebs at our room, plus stains on the furniture. 2. Comfort. Water was dripping from the A/C unit during the entire night, which made... More

Riva Lofts is just out of the main centre of Florence but this is more than made up for by the peace and security of the facility We were made very welcome by Frederica who advised us as to places to eat and visit There are trams that run to the centre of town each 5 minutes that costs 1... More

Great place to stay out of the centre, just a 10 minute tram ride from the main railway station. Comfortable rooms, pleasant garden and a pool that would be good in the summer. Nice breakfast room and lounge available. Pleasant staff who will arrange dinner reservations and give advice about what to do in Florence.
