Getting to Riva Lofts from the airport was quite short (15 min) by taxi - should be around 25 Euros. Lovely accommodation with generous space. Stayed in a studio room (no.4) divided between living room downstairs and bedroom upstairs. I'd recommend buying simple groceries from market and make your own dinner in the kitchenette as they have good stove and appliances - unfortunately I didn't get to take advantage this time. Communication with staff is quite instant via email. Eleonora was mostly there to help us when needed. Riva Lofts is slightly off the city centre - about 30 min walk to city centre by the river. Nice walk in the evening. Usually in the morning we took the tram / bus. It's lovely place for couples who want to have romantic time away from busy streets and enjoy the view of Florence.

Unfortunately we just stayed for one night. Next time we will definitely stay longer and hopefully in summer so we can use the awesome pool and its garden area. The staff are highly professional and speak excellent English. We loved that we could use the hotel bikes free of charge and ride into the city center along the Arno river in just 10 minutes. We could even use the bikes until 1pm and park free of charge on our departure day. Hope to be back soon! All the best, Pia and Stephan

Traveled to Florence as part of our first tour of Tuscany. We found Riva Lofts website by chance, booking our accommodation went smoothly. We drove to Riva Lofts, it was easy to find, unfortunately all parking spaces were taken. We found a space just across the street, otherwise there are other options nearby. As soon as you open the main gate you will be amazed with the beauty of Riva Lofts! We were very lucky to be upgraded to a Deluxe room but we were not expecting such gorgeous room! We opened the door to our room an went upstairs to find the most beautiful room! Spacious, high ceilings, beautiful design, gorgeous interior design, charming terrace, every little detail is delightful. Laura (best concierge) was in touch with us since we booked, always replied to our emails answering all our queries. All staff were always welcoming, friendly and professional. Breakfast had an extra cost, please go for it! It is simply delicious and you get much more of what you expect. The hotel is not in central Florence, but you can use one of their bikes or take a tram. We opted to cycle and within 10 minutes we were at Ponte Vecchio. The garden and communal areas are beautiful, the swimming pool is clean; there are hammocks and sunbeds to relax in the garden. It is also worth to mention that with the current COVID situation you can see how all staff has been trained and are well prepared to deal with every detail. 100% recommend you to stay at Riva Lofts, you will not regret it!

A great place to stay if one is after stunning design by a known architect. Every detail is done with much care. And so is the staff: very kind and helpful and easy going. You can stroll along Arno to reach Florence, the lively quarter Oltrano is close and with good weather you may enjoy the beautiful garden. Also our dog was very welcome. Definitely the place to stay in Florence.
