Located in the old town of Florence, the Rivoli Boutique Hotel offers class hospitality with charm, as well as spacious and elegantly decorated hotel rooms and suites. The Rivoli Boutique Hotel is a 4-star superior hotel that is set inside a restored 14th-century Franciscan convent, where guests can breath the charming and unique atmosphere of this ancient historic building in the city of Florence. The restoration has highlighted the architectural details dating back to 1500 such as arches and vaults, coffered ceilings and stone columns. Guests are welcomed in an enchanting setting full of cozy atmosphere, embellished by refined common areas, which are conceived as an oasis of tranquility away from the hectic pace of the city. The Internal Patio, which was obtained from a complete renovation of the Franciscan cloister, is now dedicated to relaxation and wellbeing, featuring an unforgettable 20 sqm-whirlpool that is also open during the winter with a constant water temperature of 36° C. The location could not be better, a few steps from the Santa Maria Novella railway station, the Duomo Cathedral, Ponte Vecchio Bridge, opposite the ancient and famous Officina Profumo di Santa Maria Novella, and the most important museums. In addition to the interior elegant and spacious patio, the Rivoli Boutique Hotel guests can enjoy the quiteness of the small "garden of medlar", an exceptional lounge where to spend moments of real relax; in summer time the garden is available for breakfast and dinners prepared and served by Benedicta Restaurant , 3 Michelin forks.

I found it to be a decent hotel which met our family of 5 needs: we had one triple and one double rooms. Clean. Good value for money in the expensive city of Florence. Few notes on the negative side: the breakfast has scarce selection of food. The carpet on the stairs is worn out - this spoils the “4 star” lobby look. The biggest complaint from my teenage boys was no wi-fi in rooms. We had to go downstairs to the lobby, which was busy and noisy at times, to research some information on the internet

I booked this hotel based upon it's unique description of being a converted monastery. It did not disappoint! There were so many little nooks to just sit and relax. I booked 2 rooms with the balcony. It was exactly what I was looking for in a hotel in Florence. It was such a pleasure to just go out on the balcony to enjoy the weather and atmosphere. The room was very quiet, we could not hear any noise outside of our rooms. Slept comfortably. The staff was so accommodating when we arrived and throughout our stay. The amenities in the room were so special. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Rivoli during our stay in Florence, it’s located as advertised in old Florence and it is perfectly situated as it is a walking distance from the train station as well as the shopping districts and many other restaurants. We didn’t use taxis or public transport to go anywhere absolutely everywhere we needed to go was walking distance. The hotel itself is well furnished and is very elegant from the lobby to the rooms. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful when we needed directions. And provided us with maps and great suggestions. When we had an early tour and would have missed our breakfast they prepared a breakfast box for us which I think is a great service to the guests. So far on our Europe trip when we have had early tours, although we’ve paid for breakfast in all our hotels we’ve had to forfeit it due to our tours being so early. This is the only hotel that has been considerate to us. Also on the topic of service, our rooms were always cleaned and the cleaning staff were pleasant when we did see them. Highlights: I especially enjoyed the bartender who was very pleasant and interacted well with guests as well as make great cocktails for us to enjoy! He made the stay here very enjoyable!! Also, the hotel has its own restaurant and the staff is very pleasant and the food is delicious. The food at breakfast was delicious and well prepared. Cons: The only con is that the TV is in Italian without an English subtitle option. Other than that our stay was beautiful!! The garden is beautiful and although we didn’t get much time to visit the jacuzzi as our days were jam packed! We heard many people enjoying that feature as well. All in all I would stay here again.

Spent one night there while on holiday (Rome and Florence). Couldn’t have been happier with our hotel choice! Luxurious feel everywhere! The breakfast is one of the very best I have had the chance to try during my travels!

We stayed at The Rivoli Boutique Hotel for 5 nights. It was a nice hotel with comfortable, clean rooms and a friendly staff. The in-room air conditioning was fantastic and provided a great escape from the Florence heat. We appreciated the included breakfast. It had a nice selection of pastries, cheeses, meats, and other breakfast items. We were glad that the hotel had an outdoor jacuzzi pool. It needed some updating, but my family enjoyed using it. The hotel restaurant, Benedicta, was very good and I’d highly recommend it to hotel guests. My only issue with the hotel was that there were several area rugs on the tile floors. They weren’t secured very well and created a tripping hazard and made pulling wheeled luggage difficult. Despite that minor concern, we really liked our stay at The Rivoli and would stay here again.
