My Mom and I stayed at the hotel Rivoli during my first trip to Italy during the end of May, beginning of June. Overall, I would recommend the Hotel Rivoli. Here's why:
1. Room was large and comfortable. Very nice fixtures in the bathroom.
2. Location was excellent. Walking distance from train station, Plaza de Repubblica, and more
3. Bartender was very friendly, restaurant was nice for breakfast
1. Front desk staff was somewhat quiet, cold and reserved. I wasn't impressed.
2. Building next door to our room was undergoing construction and was very noisy overnight and early in the morning. The hotel itself was quiet, but our neighbors woke us up in the middle of the night.
