This hotel is superbly located in the heart of Riva, a perfect base for exploring. Riva del Garda is a beautiful, quaint little town with a lovely selection of shops, bars, restaurant but this is a review of the hotel so....
Good points; definitely location, great bar just outside to the left where mojitos were only €5 and we were brought lovely nibbles. Staff very helpful, rooms very clean and ours very spacious with 2 good sized bathrooms, albeit at the back of the hotel and traffic noise at night. The size made up for it, I think it was a family room. Fridge, hairdryers, safe etc. and plenty of wardrobe space but no tea and coffee making facilities but that's a continent thing. Car park at back of hotel which has to be booked I believe. Did not have a lake view room but we were sailing all day so didn't really need it!
Lovely breakfast and breakfast terrace, great fresh juicers you could use and boiled eggs you could do yourself. Great selection of just about everything!
Not so good points; Pool tiny, about 2 people max, has a tidal flow system where you press a button and swim against the flow, ok but deceptively photographed on the website. Sunbathing terrace looked nice but didn't get a chance to use it. No pool towels I took mine from the room. On that note, the towels were rather skinny and worn out, I love a good hotel towel but these were not.
No air con and it was hot even in May, so if we came back to Garda which we will, we'd definitely stay somewhere with aircon. That said we had an absolutely fab stay here.
