My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and just loved the Riva Lofts. We will absolutely stay there the next time we're in Florence and will recommnend it to all of our friends.
Don't be concerned about the location. True - its not in the center of town, but that's one of the best things about it! The tram stop is literally a 5 minute walk (maybe 4) and the tram runs from 6am to midnight - we never waited more than 6 minutes for a train. Once on the tram, you're in the center of town in 10 minutes, where you can then walk to everything. We never took a taxi the entire time we were in Florence - day or night.
The property is beautiful, very peaceful and calm which was perfect after having just spent time in the center of Rome. The rooms are large and interesting and have all of the amenities you want or need. The "living room" was a great place to relax and the breakfast service is great - coffee, tea, juice, yoghurt, pastries, hard-cooked eggs, bread, etc. It was so nice not to have to find a place for breakfast every morning - great way to start the day.
The staff was incredible - they were so nice and welcoming and had plenty of recommendations for restaurants and sights to see. We took their recommendations for lunch and dinner most days and each time, they were excellent.
This place is a great find - I'm just worried that the word will get out and we won't be able to get a room next time we're in Florence!
