    A gate at the back onto the path by the river would be safer than walking on the road. Great having bicycles but they need a service badly.

    The shared lounge area with music was fabulous. Access to the kitchen would also be good. Loved the outdoor pool area. Parking out front. Location.

    My room downstairs had no good lights.

    Very nice, modern, simple and good taste. The front desk team are helpfull and full of good advices such as restaurants or stores. Great bed linen. My room was nice but the lights could be better, a little dark. Breakfast is fine, simple but tasty. I would recommend and would stay there again.

    Not much in the few blocks around so it is a bit of a walk to get food, etc. But only about a 30 minute walk to most major attractions, or 4-stops on the tram, or they have bikes available for use!

    Beautiful property and wonderful staff. Nice that it's a little bit outside the old part of the city and away from the crowds.

    Staying at the Riva Lofts was a true luxury experience. First, you're in Florence, one of the most beautiful places in the world, but then Riva Lofts elevated the already-surreal by being an oasis just outside of the tourists, traffic, and noise.

    No windows that could be opened to let in fresh air, apart from the little one in the bathroom in our apartment. Avoid room number 1, as you can really hear the traffic on the main road when it gets busy. The shower - the design of the water falling everywhere - I am just glad I did not have to clean the bathroom after all the mess! Could not get used to the bathroom door opening into the bedroom instead of the other way around ... but could easily be changed? PLEASE could there be an electric kettle provided, as some people do miss their cup of tea before going to sleep and the electric stove does not work. I could not see anyplace around the area that had groceries/food/restaurants for something quick to eat apart from going back into the city area.

    Breakfast is served from 8am and the reception arranged for the breakfast to be available for us from 7.45am because we were taking a tour. The outside area is fabulous! Especially at night! Loved the hammocks - great idea!. Gorgeous overall atmosphere, and the new tram only takes about 15 minutes ... straight to the main train station/city centre (much faster than a taxi)!!!

    Nice location on the River Arno, just out of town - 3 tram stops from the station. A wonderful oasis away from the tourist crush of central Florence. Great place for walking and running

    Need a mirror in the living area. It's not enough to only provide one in the bathroom. Lighting could be improved.

    Fantastic staff. Great breakfast choice and very comfortable room with super bathroom - including fluffy robe! So lovely to have free soft drinks provided in the fridge.

    One major blip at the beginning. Check in was awkward as we didn't have passports with us (we actually live in Italy but are not italian). Driving license does not count as ID. Thankfully I had a copy of my passport saved on my lap top and happened to have my laptop with me. Otherwise I'm afraid we would not have been allowed to stay and our wedding anniversary weekend would have been ruined.

    Breakfast, hotel design, room space.

    Would love a possibility to get some food / snacks during the day. Only drinks and bisquits available.

    Loved this place. The yard with a pool was wonderful and mostly in shadow. Great location just 4 tram stops away from the railway station, out of the central city but close enough.
