“Contemporary and Comfortable”
Reviewed 4 August 2007

Riva Lofts is very spacious and comfortable, and the modern decor was a welcome change. Bathroom was a bit dark, but the shower was wonderful. Bed was very comfortable, and the room separator lent ambiance. Nice wide open living space with a small table and chairs by the kitchen area (we had a deluxe, non-loft room). Flat panel TV and chairs at the far end of the living space (but won't need that in Florence).
We had a corner room that opened up to the pool/garden area, and we kept the door and window open in the evening for the breeze. (Note, air con was not working, which did not matter in early June, but would be a drag in July/August). The bigger lofts have a view of the Arno, and look very large and dramatic.
Walk to the Ponte Vecchio took us 20 minutes give or take, and due to construction, it's a bit doggie 1/2 km from the hotel, but then it becomes quite nice - and if you are not in a hurry, wonder the neighborhoods - there are some wonderful restaurants in Oltrarno.
Alice was fabulous - very helpful and considerate. The grounds were lovely, and the pool looked inviting (a nice feature for the warmer months). If you want something older, closer to the Ufitzi, and "grandly Italian", then Riva Lofts is not a good fit. But if you are looking for modern accommodations with every convenience, in a smaller, more intimate setting away from the crowds, then I recommend the Riva Lofts.
