We recently stayed here for two nights. We are a large family and had booked two rooms. The location is probably the only good thing about the hotel. Although it is not a very nice part of Florence. Close to the train station and not to far to walk to the Duomo. It's a very old hotel and they use...

DirezioneRivoli, Responsabile reception at Hotel Rivoli, responded to this review

Dear Mr Sandfeld, I'm really sorry that you didn't appreciate our hotel and services, probably the Rivoli is not really the hotel for you. You are totally right when you say the hotel is very old, as the building is a XIVth century Convent. The other comments you make are personal so, I can not argue with this. I only...

Can't beat the location of this hotel. Close to the Central train station, an amazing church, and the river. Easy to walk to the major attractions in Florence, including the Ponte Vecchio for you shoppers:) The hotel rooms are fine, though they are very modern and come with no directions. We enjoyed the bathrobes and the upstairs spa with jacuzzi,...

Everything about this hotel is fabulous! The rooms are generous in size and it's in a great location. Generally people in Florence were rude, so the hotel was a great in- betweener because everyone here is lovely! Great stay, wish we could stay longer, eat at the hotel restaraunt Benidicto it's magnificent! No complaints!

Loved this hotel. We were on the 3rd floor, quiet, with a nice view of the clock tower. Room was spacious and clean; beds were very comfortable. Location of hotel was perfect.

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
