Just a 10-minute walk from the Duomo, Hotel Rivoli is set in a converted Franciscan monastery dating to the 14th century.
Close to Florence's main railway station, Santa Maria Novella, this traditional property is within walking distance of the city's main sights including the Medici chapels, the world-class Uffizi Galleries and the Accademia (home to Michelangelo's David). The iconic Ponte Vecchio bridge, which crosses the Arno River, is less than a 15-minute stroll away.
Original features include vaulted ceilings and stone columns, and the lounges are dotted with antiques. After a day of sightseeing, relax in the courtyard garden where you'll find a heated plunge pool and a hot tub (open all year). Drinks and snacks are served at the garden bar every afternoon and evening. The restaurant serves classic Tuscan dishes with a contemporary twist and breakfast can be taken outside in summer.
The traditional rooms all have air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, minibars, free Wi-Fi and floor-to-ceiling windows. Family and balcony rooms are available.
