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...

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...

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....

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...

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 Hotel Rivoli offers class hospitality with charm, as well as spacious and elegantly decorated hotel rooms and suites. The Hotel Rivoli 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 Hotel Rivoli 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
