Loved, loved my stay here. Florence is wonderful and Riva lofts accentuates the city's beauty. The rooms are spectacular and they think of everything. Staff is very knowledgable and helpful.

Great location, oasis feel, super staff!Posted 14/09/2013
Pros: Pool, bikes, garden, location, breakfast, room decor, very helpful staff.
Location: Close to airport, city center, arno river.
Stayed for 3 nights. Loved the feel of the place, very laid back and comfortable. Beautiful architecture, courtyards and garden. But easy bike ride or tram ride into city center. Overall a great experience.

A different type of Florentine holidayPosted 04/07/2012
Pros: Pool, sunbeds, great tips from staff
Cons: Breakfasts basic, size of outdoor area
Location: Not in the city centre - a 15-minute bike ride, half an hour walk or short tram ride into town. Peaceful area, a haven from the busy city.
If you've been to Florence before and are looking for a different experience, this is a good place to stay but not for s first visit if you want a proper city experience. Located along the river outside the city Riva Lofts is a restful and relaxing place to lounge around the lap pool and soak up some rays. Staff have great insider tips about different places to visit and dine in Florence, which are off the beaten track. Such as the world's oldest pharmacy tucked away near the train station. The hotel has bikes for guests to use to ride along the river cycle paths into the city, which is really good fun. Some of the bikes are very old and rickety but that is part of the fun, as long as the brakes work! Breakfasts at the hotel are quite basic and were slightly disappointing given the price of the rooms, which are certainly not cheap. Also the outside area is quite a lot smaller than it looks in photographs and not as immaculate as I was expecting, but still nice. All soft drinks in the room mini bar are free, which is very welcome when the mercury hits 37degrees! It's a great little haven if you want a relaxing holiday in a city like Florence.

Unique boutique B & B off the beaten pathPosted 25/06/2012
Pros: Architecture and design, and excellent service
Cons: There were initial signs of wear and tear in the bathroom
Location: Outside of the center of town, but accessible by foot, bike or car
Beautifully designed and outstanding service. The staff speak excellent English and suggested some great non-toursity restaurants. I liked that the B & B was outside the center of town (where the tourism industry can be a bit overwhelming) but accessible by foot, bike or car. For a unique boutique hotel experience off the beaten path, I would highly recommend this one!
