The best part of Rivoli Boutique Hotel is the garden and the terrace of selected room and the close vicinity to Firenze SMN Station. Reception area is average. Some areas of the hotel are a bit "worn-out": the stairs with old carpet, old furniture, creaking bed springs, mattress with indentation in certain areas. It would have been a delight if...

Dear Guest, thanks for your appreciated comment, this gives me the opportunity to inform you and other guests that we are working on renovation the building and in the next future also the rooms will be refurbished.

This is a lovely little hotel in a great location. We especially loved the grand breakfast buffet. The room was very very clean and efficient. The hotel staff couldn't have been nicer. Super friendly and gave us lots of good advice. We loved it.

We, a party of 4 friends, stayed at The Rivoli for 4 nights and we all could have stayed forever. Never have we felt so at home and comfortable in our surroundings. If you are going to run a hotel then this is the way to do it. In our opinion it has the highest accolade of Faultless.

The Rivoli is situated in a great location in the center of Florence in front of main station Santa Maria Novelle which meant that I was able to walk to all the places I wanted to visit, Comfortable beds, the room was large enough, the buffet breakfast was filling with a good variety of food, lovely, friendly and nice staff.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the old town of Florence, the Rivoli Boutique Hotel offers class hospitality with charm, as well as spacious and elegantly decorated hotel rooms and suites. The Rivoli Boutique Hotel is a 4-star superior hotel that is set inside a restored 14th-century Franciscan convent, where guests can breath the charming and unique atmosphere of this ancient historic building in the city of Florence. The restoration has highlighted the architectural details dating back to 1500 such as arches and vaults, coffered ceilings and stone columns. Guests are welcomed in an enchanting setting full of cozy atmosphere, embellished by refined common areas, which are conceived as an oasis of tranquility away from the hectic pace of the city. The Internal Patio, which was obtained from a complete renovation of the Franciscan cloister, is now dedicated to relaxation and wellbeing, featuring an unforgettable 20 sqm-whirlpool that is also open during the winter with a constant water temperature of 36° C. The location could not be better, a few steps from the Santa Maria Novella railway station, the Duomo Cathedral, Ponte Vecchio Bridge, opposite the ancient and famous Officina Profumo di Santa Maria Novella, and the most important museums. In addition to the interior elegant and spacious patio, the Rivoli Boutique Hotel guests can enjoy the quiteness of the small "garden of medlar", an exceptional lounge where to spend moments of real relax; in summer time the garden is available for breakfast and dinners prepared and served by Benedicta Restaurant , 3 Michelin forks. ... more   less
