    Cleanliness and location

    Staff seemed reluctant to assist although they did but begrudgingly at times. The hotel offered nothing to rave about but also nothing to warrant a full blown complaint. Average accomodation at an average price.

    The friendly entrance and the fact that they always wanted to help you if you had a question

    Fabulous

    Why didn't a member of staff empty the ashtrays in the central courtyard, what a shame it was unkempt and grubby.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel location was great. Located on the Arno, it was within walking distance of many attractions, museums and restaurants. I really liked the convenience. Hotel clerks were not very helpful and were stuffy. Breakfast was decent. Free parking is available out front if you were lucky to find a spot. Compared to other hotels in same area, it was a decent value.

    Roof sprang a leak during a heavy rain. Dripping water woke us up!! Not a big problem but definitely a surprise.

    Good

    We enjoyed the self service breakfast and being able to sit on the terrace in the evening. But we had a very poor view from our window in the room. We also got bitten a lot by something at night something flying around in the room, but I suppose that was because we had the window open. The staff were helpful and we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel River overall.

    Fabulous

    Triple room was ample, with nice remodeled bathroom. Also appreciated being accommodated with early check-in.

    I have no complaints. Good value for the money.

    Very good

    The location was good. We could walk to the shopping district, the restaurants,and all places of interest. We were given the room facing the river . The staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast was sufficient but lack of greens and salad. Overall we are satisfied with the cleanliness of the Hotel.

    It's a nice hotel, just along the river, good view, and very quiet.

    Superb

    Excellent location, especially if you are planing to attend at the Firenze Marathon - it starts practically in front of the hotel. It is very close to the most site seeings as well. Clean room, friendly staff. Breakfast is a little bit basic, but has the most important things.

    Our room was a little bit small, but I guess it is a common problem for all hotels in the historical center of the city.

    It would be ok if we had payed to stay in a 3 star hotel

    We booked it thinking it was a four star hotel it is no more than a standard 3 star. The breakfeast is very basic and there is no WiFi except in the hotel lobby.

    Very good

    Essendo in sedia a rotelle ritengo di poter consigliare ad altri viaggiatori disabili questo hotel. Posizione buona per la visita alla città. Buon rapporto quaità prezzo.
