This was our first visit to Riva and we discovered a gem. Every bedroom was different and the rooms appeared old fashioned but what comfort. The bathroom had a terrific walk in shower and a bidet, with plenty of space. The wall light was a chandelier and the bedside lights were ideal for reading in bed. There was plenty of... More

1. NO PARKING for visitors! Really?? You have to use public parking for additional 5euro fee. 2. Sound isolation is terrible. 3.No doors in bathrooms. Only a glass cover. If you make a big thing, the whole room stinks for a long time, because also there's no air ventilation in bathroom also! 4. Dinner menu is poor and you can't... More

Staff really tried to help with the internet, but it proved a real problem for me. I had work to do and ended up having to spend time in the lobby. The town of Riva Del Garda was so sweet.Nice friendly shops with yummy gelato and Italian specialties -- but the real star is the lake and the mountains. Be... More

I read a few reviews on this hotel before going as was a little worried. Location is great and is right by the lake with some really fantastic views, especially from the dining room. I few people have mentioned noise from the lifts; I was in room 413 which is about as close to the lift as you can get.... More

I stayed overnight at the end of January. The hotel, which is in a fantastic position right in the centre of Riva, has been done up in a "cheap and chic" style which doesn't really suit it. A number of things were disappointing: 1) Although the offer I had was for a family room (double bed + sofa) they only... More

1st star for location, 2nd for the view from the breakfast room – all the rest it was just disappointment. The room on arrival was cleaned, except shower area, which has been missed - empty bottles of shampoo were left on the floor together with some hairs. The room does not have DND sign, which would not be a problem... More

Stayed at the Grand Hotel Riva for Christmas. We had an excellent time. My husband and I were lucky enough to have the room with the large balcony over the front entrance. It was a spacious room and the balcony was great to sit out and have a coffee overlooking the square and the mountains with the lake to the... More

The rooms vary but the majority have fantastic views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The square is full of shops and restaurants, cafe's and tapas bars. Prices were good the bus station...

I stayed at the Grand Hotel in early December as part of a group on a coaching holiday. My room was very nice, large, clean and warm.I was in a twin bedded room, and the bed was to die for! The mattress was a memory foam one and I slept wonderfully there. There is also a safe, easy to work... More
