The level of design and architecture and attention to detail here is totally on point. The pool and outdoor area is great (except for all the little mosquitoes and bugs, which is my ONLY complaint, but a constant annoyance). The common area is awesome - love the "honesty bar" concept and that soft drinks in the mini bar are free... More

Okay, the rooms in Riva Lofts are extremely comfortable and nice, the swimming pool and garden are gorgeous, and breakfast and coffee couldn't be better. But what makes the hotel really outstanding is Juliette and her colleague at the reception. They show you with pleasure and knowledge where the best restaurants and original shops are, they make reservations, and book... More

Riva Lofts was a relaxing place to come home to after long days touring Florence. The tram into the city center is just 1 block away and takes just a few minutes into town. It is ideal if you will be traveling Italy by car since parking in the center is not possible. The rooms are modern and lovely and... More

Loved it, an urban oasis on the Florentine fringe. Fabulous staff who couldn't be more helpful, delicious Italian breakfast and excellent coffee. Highly recommend, if just for the river views alone and the wonderful park on the other side.

What a find in Florence!! A beautiful, modern hotel/apartment style property, situated about 10 minutes from the heart of Florence. After a lovely welcome from Alice, we were shown to our fabulous 1 bedroom apartment. We were three travelling together, so with the addition of a rollaway, there was still plenty of room to spread out. What I loved though,... More

Wow! This was our first visit to Florence and now, thanks to Riva Lofts, it won't be our last! The Riva Lofts is discretely hidden and yet easy to find. The entrance is adorned with beautiful white roses and good security. We were greeted by lovely staff who were friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was gorgeous! Chic, stylish, spacious... More

Some places you would just like to keep to yourself. What a wonderful place. We had a perfect stay from start to finish. We were welcomed by Juliette, a warm personality, who immediately showed us the other hidden gems of Florence on a map (restaurants, shops, non-touristy must-see-sites, ...). We followed her advice and were taken from one surprise to... More

This is a beautifully and thoughtfully designed hotel, with a very helpful reception addressing all your questions with care. They helped us with museum and restaurant bookings, and excellent suggestions for where to find great gelato! The rooms are very clean, and ours had a jacuzzi. The breakfasts are in common room, and have delicious selection catering to different tastes.... More
