Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Hotel Rivoli
Booked a room - maybe not !!from TartanD
Before I left I had emailed the hotel twice to confirm that they had our booking and to also inform them that we would be arriving late (11.30pm).
My booking was confirmed and I was told "Don't worry about your late arrival we will hold the room for you"
You can imagine how annoyed I was when we turned up to be told there "were many room problems" and told that we would have to go and stay at another hotel in their chain.
This seemed to happen to another guest in a previous review for this hotel.
As it was the other hotel was fine but disappointing that we did not get the chance to stay in the hotel that we actually booked and paid for. This other hotel was also cheaper per night than the Rivoli and we were not offered any kind of compensation.
Well done Rivoli!from A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent propertyfrom qtfolc
Nice Charming Hotelfrom Dublin_Dude
Will definately stay at the Rivoli sometime in the near future
s sleep!from Roberto_NW_Italy
The valet parking facility is actually very convenient, and the fee is not very different from what local garages would have charged you when access to the historic centre was allowed in the past. The hotel will also remove for you the "limited traffic zone" violation fine (68 euro I think) that gets automatically triggered whenever someone drives into the bounds of the historic centre without an appropriate permission.
The hotel, a monastery in the distant past, has a pleasant historic feel. Our "superior" room had a small waiting room, LCD TV and a large and extremely comfortable bed. The bathroom was long and narrow but well appointed. Nice breakfast room with on average decent quality food (although fruit juices are all but natural!)
The hotel is only steps from Santa Maria Novella church and railway station, and therefore minutes away from many of the most the stunning landmarks (Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio).
Would definitely come again and recommend it, given location, overall quality and value for money.
A Great Hotel!from A TripAdvisor Member
The bartender from india was extremley nice. He reffered us to our best meal in Florence at Bucca Mario. He was very nice and very informing.
The hotel is a very easy walk to the train station, about a block. The hotel is right on the same street as the Piazza Santa Maria Novella which is a great place to just hang out at night. It is a very short walk from the Duomo. The Ponte Vecchio is also within walking distance about 15 minutes. The real David is also in walking distane. The hotels location is just superb. Tons of gelaterias and good restaurants all around the hotel.
This is just an amazing hotel and i recommend this to everyone who wants a nice clean hotel with moderatly big rooms great service and a great central location to everything.
Rental Car held prisoner, but not a bad placefrom redrayandredkay
Then found that to park car at a garage that is not owned by the hotel, was about $25.00 a day. Beware of driving a rental car there but if you do, get good directions and plan to budget in parking fees.
Did not even get offered welcome drink (which may have alleviated our stress at trying to find the hotel, but after thinking about it, it may have taken more than one).
Not far from train station.
Hotel room was clean, bathroom was a little small but not uncomfortably so (it is Europe so expected).
Breakfast was good and plentiful. Not a complaint but dont expect your bacon crispy.
Walking distance to shopping and many sights. Map was available at hotel desk but not detailed so look at purchasing one outside somewhere.
May stay here again if we come in on a train but using rental car, probably would look else where.
Really good hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good location: 2 blocks from Rail Station, and you can walk to all nice places of Florence (Cathedral, Ponte Veccio, Pitti Palace, etc etc)
The room was big (remember that it´s Europe!), absolutelly clean and nice!
We took a superior room (20 Euros more a day)
Bathroom REALLY GOOD, including a small whirlpool!
People absolutelly nice.
We couldn´t enjoy the pool (remember that temperature was around 8 degrees C)but it looks GOOD
I would go back if I´m in Florence for sure!
Very pleased with Hotel Rivolifrom A TripAdvisor Member
In spite of this one inconvenience, my family had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Rivoli.
Top Local Tips for Florence
Pisa and Siena Florence is a great place to visit but try to find time to stop off in Pisa - the tower was impressive and the surroundings! Siena is a must and is best visited by Bus - which is cheap and well worth the effort.
Great Restaurant Go to Ciro and sons restaurant, Piazza della Madonna, behind the Medici Chapel in Florence. The food is great, out of this world, we have eaten twice on two different visits, it's a family run restaurant very friendly, great wines and try the lemon liquor as it is freshly made. It is not a cheap restaurant but not expensive but worth every penny.
Ufizzi Museum Make sure you pre-book your tickets . This is so important you could be waiting up to 4 hrs for entry.I booked on line day before leaving UK payed printed off a voucher then handed it into museum, entry time no more than 10min.
