My husband and I have just returned from a break in Florence, staying at the Hotel Rivoli for four nights from 16th March to 19th March. We booked the complete package with Voyage Prive, including flights with Vueling, private transfers and meet and greet parking at Heathrow. The package included an upgrade to a superior room and breakfast was included. The location is excellent with all the major sights within walking distance. The staff were extremely helpful, the food was very good, with plenty of choice at breakfast. We stayed in room 115, which has a small balcony overlooking the courtyard gardens. It was extremely clean and comfortable - Best Western even offer you a selection of pillows to choose from! The flight with Vueling was direct to Florence (not Pisa as offered by many, with a longer transfer). The legroom on the flight was better than many airlines offer, and again the service was very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel for a stay in Florence, and would not hesitate in recommending Voyage Prive to anyone - we will definitely be using them again.
