Recently spent 3 nights at Riva Lofts and was absolutely blown away by the hotel and the staff. It is absolutely amazing and I can't recommended it enough. The staff were incredible: welcoming, full of great recommendations and happy to help book tables and generally organise our fun! Nothing was too much trouble and within hours of arriving I felt at home. The hotel itself is beautiful. Our room was huge and had a seperate lounge and dining area. The decoration was classy and everything looked brand new. The soft drinks in the mini bar were included in the room price as was a jar of fresh biscotti (both refilled daily). The communal area was also very large and had a well stocked honesty bar. There is also a log fire which you can get going whenever you like. Breakfast of fresh pastries, cereal and coffee was also included. We were there in winter so didn't make use of the garden or the pool but looking forward to going back when its warmer.
The location isn't perfect, walking from the centre of town takes about 30 minutes and we did end up taking quite a few taxis when heading out for dinner. But its only a 3 minute walk from the hotel to Paulo Uccello tram stop, and then a 8 minute tram ride to the city centre. So this should definitely not put you off. The location also means you get luxury at a much better price than in the centre of town.
I was there as part of group of four friends and it worked brilliantly. Its also the perfect location for a couple on a romantic break (think candle lit drinks and wine in front of the fire...). I'll definitely be going back to Riva Lofts and encourage anyone going to Florence to seriously consider this as a place to stay.
