....but a good 15 minute walk into town. Basic, but clean. Friendly efficient staff but no real bar in the evening. Head into town and go to Marilyn's Irish Bar, or their sister hotel up the road. Food is nice enough, and varied, though helpings aren't huge...

For a 3 star hotel it was reasonable. Room was clean and adequate although pillows were not plump and reception were not helpful in providing an extra pillow - domestic staff were more helpful and we got an extra pillow on the 3rd day. Food was fine - only 2 choices but adequate. The hotel is about a 20 minute... More

There are few so dramatic landscapes in Europe as those around northern Lake Garda and Riva is particularly stunning in its beauty, nature being particularly kind to it and the local area! Gardesana is really close to the lake and some of its spectacular views, this surely then being one of the advantages of staying in this interesting hotel. Rooms... More

We only stayed here for 1 night during a very hot July. For what we paid this was super. The location was good on two counts - easy to find with the car (Enough free Parking) and a few minutes walk to the lake. Admittedly its a 10 min stroll to the middle of town - but its a very... More

Travelled with the travel Department. The location is great for walks along the Northern Lake Garda with great views which was only a short walk away from the hotel. We had a double room at the rear of the hotel which had a very small balcony which was not practicable to use. The food although basic was sufficient if you... More

I stayed in this hotel for about 4 days. I found the staff to be very helpful and courteous. The food was good and the place was well within my budget. This was my first time visiting Italy and Riva Del Garda. Overall the experience was really nice. I would definitely recommend this place.

Stayed here for a week, travelling with Travel Department. Hotel is clean, and comfortable, we were in room 204 overlooking the front, hardly any noise from traffic or anything else. Nice balcony too. Breakfast was continental, nice selection. Evening meals were excellent! great choice, unusual combinations, really made a nice change, all food very well cooked and presented. The restaurant... More

This hotel was very clean and towels were changed daily. The room was very small, we had to squeeze past each other on the way to the bathroom and the balcony was only big enough for one chair. The pool was lovely but the entertainment which was only on one night was unbelievably cheezy. A guy with a keyboard playing... More

Breakfast is not so goód, Check-out is at 10 oclock and it is not very commen! The crew is friendly´, there is a free parking place in front of the hotel, the city center is about 5 km away and you need a car or bike otherwise only by walking.

We stayed here in April 2015 having booked through Travel Department. The hotel is about 10 or 15 minutes walk from the centre of the town, but it’s a relaxing walk along the lakeside (with stops to feed the ducks). The room was perhaps a little dated, but was spotlessly clean and kept this way throughout our stay. All the... More
