Found in Florence’s old town, the Rivoli Boutique Hotel is a lovely 4-star retreat steps from the city’s Santa Maria Novella station and the fashionable shops lining Via della Vigna Nuova. This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner is defined by charming, Florentine touches, set within a 15th-century convent, with a patio and garden, Jacuzzi, gym and meeting facilities. All rooms are cosy havens from the bustling streets outside, with satellite TVs and air conditioning.
What was once the Franciscan refectory is now the breakfast room and reflects the style of the hotel with its warm and inviting decor. The extensive American style buffet breakfast includes a wide selection of cereals, hams, cheeses, various fruits, yoghurt, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. During the summer the breakfast can be served in the garden, an ideal way to start the day.
