Rivoli for roamin'
Posted Jun 26, 2015 on Hotels
Above every other comment here please know that the complementary breakfast is the absolute best at Hotel Rivioli with fresh baked pastry and cakes, eggs, pancetta, fruit, and enough to make a lunch or late night meal to keep in your 'frig! It is an elegant facility that reflects the opulence of travel of a by-gone era which is somewhat obscured due to what must be insurance concerns from the Best Western take-over. Apparently the all-marble interiors which have been covered with carpeting and wall fabric, although tastefully done, must've eliminated slippery issues. The bathroom probably had a tub which must have been replaced with a lovely modern curved shower that unfortunately leaks - ironically creating very slippery marble in the one place it remains. The location is a bit removed from the main sights but is a couple of blocks from the Bourghese Gardens which was reviving in a city that is mostly cobblestone. Final note, the hotel works with a car service that (for less than $60 for both of us) got us to Fiucimo in under an hour and avoided getting our (now stuffed) carry-ons and back-packs onto the bus and train for the same amount. Thank you Hotel Rivoli!
