LHP Hotel River

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great hotel about 10 minutes' walk from the city centre. Breakfast was brilliant and the room really good - plenty of space for 3 adults. Small rooftop terrace was lovely to sit with a glass of wine and look over the river in the evening, watching the sunset.

While we were waiting for our room to be ready, the hotel offered to hold our luggage in their luggage room. When we returned to the hotel one item of our luggage (containing our cameras and computer) had mysteriously disappeared. It's now been 4 weeks and no one from the hotel is communicating with us - what a terrible hotel.

My husband and I visited Florence as part of our summer holiday trip through Italy. Hotel River was lovely.On arrival the staff were friendly and welcoming, the room was clean and well equipt, pefect.

Superb location next to the river Arno. Ultra chic and modern bedroom unfortunately it felt like being in the basement bedroom window parallel to pavement so kept curtains closed for privacy with a scrap van outside as our view. However some compensation spent most of our time enjoying the sights which were all only 20minutes walk away. Great selection for breakfast and staff were very friendly and helpful.

The River Hotel was in a perfect location, approx 10 mins away from the center walking alongside the Arno, perfect. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and the hotel was both stylish and very clean and you could take breakfast in a most delightful conservatory.

The hotel is below the 4 star it is so post to be the air conditioning works ok but you cant turn it off the door key some times worked and the food is so bland that you need to go out for breakfast the eggs are the powderd egg and as a bad effect for the rest of the day the safe works on and off we found soom good restaurants for good food one like the sole kitchen good food for lunch and good tapas for tea just buy a drink and you can eat as much as you wont

We were lucky to have a balcony overlooking the river at the front of the hotel. It was just stunning. The road wasn't too busy and no noise was heard from the traffic. The room was modern and clean with everything we could wish for. Breakfast was fantastic. I would definitely chose this hotel again as it was a pleasant stay but in a perfect position for sightseeing but not overly busy. Get booked!

We were here for 3 nights. Booked an superior room ( which basically the same as the classic rooms, besied they got their own decorations). The room is big for Italian standard, but small for north-europeean or american standards. You got a very good air condition. excellebt breakfast which you can eat in a wintergarden. The hotel offers all kind of services it seems, and the hotel has a terrace at the 3rd/4th floor which you can enjoy your late nights after at warm day (closes at 23 o`clock). It is just 10-15 minutes walk from ponte vecchio and has a very good location. The hotel has its own parkingservice, but no free parking in front of the hotel, only for loading of bagagge. Will stay here again.

Lots of positives for this small, peaceful and friendly hotel close to all the main sightseeing places. The rooms are good size, modern, smart and pristine. Lovely bathroom, comfy beds. The breakfast offered good choice, fruits, cheese, meats and pastries. Staff were all welcoming and helpful; Giuseppe helpfully loaned us a travel adaptor as we forgot ours. The hotel has a number of good quality, great value restaurants within 0.3km. It was very hot in Florence during our visit and the air con worked well in the room. Only minor issues: the outdoor area overlooks the river, which is great, but is really only a balcony. Drink prices are high, similar to that you would pay in one of the main squares. We asked for a wake up call on the final day, but it did not happen (the taxi arrived though and we had our own alarm just in case). Hotel River would certainly be my first choice when we return to Florence, thank you for great hospitality.

River Hotel is well positioned on Aaron River and and easy walk to town and Ponte Vecchio. While rooms were small we were fortunate to have one with little balcony. A perfect place to cool of with a glass of Proseco late evening. No view but quiet. Hotel is notable for friendly staff who really do go extra mile to assist you. Our second visit and we would definitely return
