This was all one could ask for in a hotel in Europe. The location was perfect - convenient to everything but not in a congested or noisy area. The room - two double beds - was clean, large, and comfortable. Temperature in the room with a/c was perfect. Loved the huge walk-in closet with a safe; the bathroom was unbelievable for any hotel, but especially one in Europe. Hotel personnel were friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was served in a large, light, comfortable area and the array of food choices was fantastic. Servers were friendly and helpful. Overall, one of the most comfortable hotel stays we've ever had in Europe. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room on second floor through the courtyard overlooking the hot tub, terrace area was excellent. The...

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in february. The location is excellent, close to the train station and within walking distance of the main sights. The staff were friendly and helpful, we had a minor problem in the bathroom and they sent someone up immediately to fix it and offered to move us to a different room, but we were happy to stay. The breakfast was really good. The only negative comment i would mention is that the bed was uncomfortable, it was actually two single beds pushed together, which often seperated, apart from that evertything was perfect and i would stay again.

We have just arrived back from a three night stay at Hotel Rivoli. From the time we arrived it was absolutely stress free. The hotel is only 5 minutes from the station - having got the shuttle bus from the airport for 5 euros which drops you off here. Really nice warm welcome from the staff and really lovely room given with a small terrace overlooking the internal courtyard. There was adequate heating too, as our trip coincided with the extreme cold weather across Europe. As has been said in previous reviews, the hotel is 5-10 minutes from all the main attractions and shops. It makes it so much easier especially when you are not staying for that long. Breakfast in the hotel was really good, all nice and fresh and the welcome from breakfast staff was very cheerful without being over the top. Check out was easy too and they looked after our bags for the day as our return flight wasn't until the evening. I would definitely recommend the hotel to friends and anyone else.

Our stay in Hotel Rivoli BW was a very pleasant one!If I could quickly summarize the strong points of the Hotel:
-Friendly staff
-Very good position, just 5 minutes from the train station (SMN) and 5-10 minutes from the main attractions of the centre (i.e. Duomo).
-Fantastic restaurant! If you're staying here - give it a try.
The decoration/style/furniture looks a bit old but it doesn't make a bad impression, it is...romantic in a way.
I have to say that I didn't like the pillows (bit hard for me) but that's a minor.

The hotel is consistent with the level of 4 *. Great location, huge by Italian standards, number (303). Windows closed street noise almost inaudible, but the internal soundproofing is poor. Breakfast is even anything other than the usual continental delights there are eggs, scrambled eggs, sausage, fried bacon. Black coffee so-so, but if you order a cappuccino, then we can drink. Staff at the reception is not very friendly, but his work does well. Maybe this is a plus - do not shake hands 20 times a day. Plumbing normal, with no surprises. Cleaning quality. Change of linen daily.
