This is a beautifully and thoughtfully designed hotel, with a very helpful reception addressing all your questions with care. They helped us with museum and restaurant bookings, and excellent suggestions for where to find great gelato! The rooms are very clean, and ours had a jacuzzi. The breakfasts are in common room, and have delicious selection catering to different tastes....

We have just spent four nights at Riva Lofts and would recommend it to all who like ultra modern, chic, fresh, comfortable and above all welcoming places to stay. Our studio was great. The common area was spacious, comfortable and practical with large and small dinning tables and a very large sink-into sofa in front of a log fireplace. We...

Rooms spotless, service superb, free wifi jcompared with ?25 per day offer from...

This is a gem of a hotel if you are willing to walk a little. Unlike other Florence hotels, the rooms are spacious with high ceilings and a separate common living room with a fire place, sitting area and nice dining table - perfect for those nights when you would rather eat in. The service is also exceptional - Juliette,...

Stayed here for three nights in September 2012 and didn't really want to leave. What a great place! Great staff! Great room! Perfect location!! If you want to go into the city to see the sights, you can walk to the train which takes you into the ancient city of Florence. Or you could just hang out at Riva, by...
