We recently had a great seven night stay in historic Firenze staying at Hotel River. The hotel is very well placed overlooking the river Arno just 5 to 10 minutes easy walk to the fascinating medieval heart of the city and all the amazing buildings and artworks to be seen. At this time of year the centre is extremely busy with tourism and at the end of a tiring day, it is very nice to return to the tranquility of Hotel River and enjoy a good English pot of tea, available free 24 hours.
All the staff were extremely friendly, very helpful, spoke good English and happy to help anyone trying to speak Italian. Effervescent Esther has a smile for everyone and at breakfast she made it her business to say hello and be friendly to all guests. The breakfast was absolutely excellent with loads of fruit, cold meat selections, toast, rolls, croissants, etc etc.
The decor of the hotel is good, everything very clean and an excellent standard. There is a nice conservatory; a courtyard and a top floor terrace with great views of the Arno and south side of the river. Our room did not have a view but this did not detract at all as it was a nice quiet and comfortable retreat.
The hotel definitely made for a great weeks holiday and we would not hesitate to return there should we decide explore even more of a delightful city.
Thanks to all staff once again.
