“Unique boutique B & B off the beaten path”
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!
“A different type of Florentine holiday”
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.
