Our children got a really really wet bed (the material was full of dark spots like a gorgonzola). The first night was not good one to sleep (there is no a person in reception in night-time). We got the dry things for a second night for a bed, and they were sorry, but during the night the raindrops fell from... More

The only thing that is really recommended at this hotel, the location right on the lake and the nearby town of Riva del Garda. The staff is neither friendly nor helpful. Besides Italian, one speaks only broken English. The room is horrible, styrofoam pictures and dusty kitsch.The kitchen is one and all from the flea market / the bulky waste... More

We spent a week at the Residence Vechhio Porto. Our apartment was really unusual, it is carved out of the mountain. Although some of the apartment was a bit dusty, it was generally clean and the linen and towels etc were spotless. The terrace had a gas bbq so we only really used the inside of the apartment to sleep... More

I just returned from 4 days at the Excelsior. It was wonderful. The suite we had was perfect for our family. It was very clean and the view was amazing. We could jump in the pool or the lake for a swim. For those of you seeking it all, you will find it here. Even though the Residence does not... More

Very nice view, but I definetly cannot recommend this appartment to anybody. During the season the appartment ist very expensive and has severe shortcomings: the furniture is old, the appartment is not clean and it smells badly. At the ceiling there was fungi.The full price has to be paid in advance (the renter knows why).

There are few reviews of this residential hotel - and those I could find were not so positive. Our experience was terrific. The people who run the hotel were extremely helpful and responsive to the few things that I wanted but did not initially find in the apartment. We stayed in Suite 117 - it was odd, unique and wonderful... More
