Rivoli is a very central hotel, five minutes from most places of interest. We had excellent service from all staff there. The superior rooms were a good size and the bathroom adequate.
The restaurant offered a 10% discount on the first meal which was good as the prices in Florence are exorbitant. We had an evening drink in the lounge which was very comfortable before going out to dinner and again when we came back which was most enjoyable. Nearby restaurants were very good and the one we tried twice was Le Martinicca.
Would I use this hotel again, most defiantly.
