We travelled to Riva in late August 2014 for 8 days and 7 nights. We found the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Our room was on the second floor and faced the lake which was about 150 metres away and not visible from the room. The balcony easily accommodated two chairs and a table and we spent some considerable time... More

Just returned from a brilliant week at the Gardesana. Hospitality, service and pool area were excellent. Rooms a bit tired and small but spotless with nice bathrooms. Meals were lovely and varied and restaurant staff very attentive and eager to please. Will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Gardesana last week on a Travel Department holiday.The hotel is in a good location only about three minutes walk across the road to the lakeside. Riva Del Garda is a beautiful little town. The food was very good. Davide and the two lovely young waitresses were very efficient and friendly. The hotel is spotless, the pool... More

We stayed here for a week with a Travel Department package which included an evening meal. As with all three star establishments one has to accept a number of factors. The room was small but spotless and with a tiny balcony overlooking a pretty little pool area. There was no room safe for valuables. There was a large ceiling fan... More

After reading many great reviews about this hotel we were sadly disappointed at the final result. We had a nice balcony but it only overlooked the back of the hotel in front. There was no air conditioning so we had to sleep with the balcony doors open which resulted in much noise from the street below. We were not told... More

The hotel is good value, reception staff helpful, bedrooms clean and tidy. Beds are a bit low and furniture is a bit cheap. But the bed was comfortable. We stayed just bed and breakfast and found nice places to eat close by. Breakfast was good lots of choice, cheese, ham, breads, cakes, cereals, yoghurt and hard boiled eggs. The restaurant... More
