We usually spend our holiday in Nice but decided to try Menton for a change, so we booked a week at the Hotel Riva, following reviews we had read. We booked a sea-view room (almost a year in advance) as these are quite popular. Another reason for choosing Menton was that we wanted to attend one of the open-air music... More

Hotel is straight on the beach only disrupted by a 2-lane street, so if you do not want to end up like Emily, sitting on a hood of a car, beware the traffic,especially the many scooters. Bear in mind the road in front of the Hotel is closed for trafficduring weekend nights tough, biiiig area to scroll and walk towards... More

We stayed for 1 night here. The hotel was very clean and modern with beautiful views. We had a sea view, the only thing was the 2 balconies either side of us were very close and we felt the need to put the security shutters down when we left the room and during the night. It is about 20 minutes... More

We stayed 2 nights and had a seaview. The lobby is very nice with a pro'fessional staff. Good garage. Little room with modern ensuite. We slept very well. At the seaside, you only need sunny days......and we got them ! From the hotel to the old center of Menton, which is pleasant, you have to walk about 20 minutes. I... More

The Hotel Riva could be easily overlooked because it is tucked in between many larger hotels, but stay here and ask for a sea view. This side is noisy with motorcycles if you leave the deck door open. Leave it open anyway. A 15 minute walk to the train station. A 20 minute walk to the old town centre ville.... More

Really well run hotel with great staff. Rooms are simple but really good for the price. The highlight is the rooftop which has a good deck and spa looking over the beach. Could spend all day up there. The hotel also has also a health spa club offering massages but book ahead as we couldn't get in on the day.... More
