We have stayed at Best Western Hotels all over Britain and have always found the hotel to be first class and the Rivoli is no exception, friendly staff and very comfortable rooms. The rooms we had were air conditioned which is a must when the temperatures are in the mid to late 30's. There is a garden terrace with a jacuzzi where you can cool off on very hot days. The breakfast is excellent and caters for many different tastes

The hotel is on a typical dusty street near the station but inside it is beautiful. There are areas to sit and chill out which are nicely decorated and contain elegant furniture. We ate breakfast in the hotel and used the jacuzzi, both of which we enjoyed.
The staff were very attentive from the room maids, the waiting on staff and the reception staff. I would particularly like to praise Francesca in reception who was patient and resourceful in my time of need.
We had a lovely stay in this unique hotel.

Our party of 11 including 3 children, and 2 teenagers all loved this hotel. The family room, a self contained duplex, was cute and comfortable. The small pool was a fab way to cool down in 35 degree temperatures. We all had our excellent breakfast in the shady, vine clad garden terrace. The staff were friendly and keen to help.
The hotel is right at the heart of Florence and within a short walk of the station and the main squares. We would undoubtedly stay there again.

This hotel was less than five minutes walk from the main station - ideal! Warm welcome, great room, and so close to anywhere you want to be.

We really enjoyed the open-top bus tour (which starts on the other side of the station) and it gave a great overview of Florence. We didn't use the pool or any other facilities as were only staying a couple of nights - but would definitely stay in this hotel again :)

If you want a nice reasonable priced hotel close to the centre this is the one for you.
Great breakfast. Nice rooms lovely small garden terrace. The family room is a duplex and was excellent.
Breakfast included
Valet parking for 20 Euros
We booked through Kyak, though the family room had to be booked direct through Best Western

What a great hotel! Excellent and attentive staff. No on site car park but they have a company who come and take your car to storage until you next need it. Room 202 was large superbly cleaned and air con that worked well and quietly. Pool is very small so we did not use it Had dinner here one night and very good value. It is a short walk to all the major sights in town and I recommend this hotel.
