Overall fantastic locations, 3min walking distance from ferry to bellagio. 2 swimming pools in front of the hotel. Friendly staff. Very loud music outside hotel on daily basis. Avarage food. Big let down is out of date standard of the rooms( sort of 60'S decor). Our friend room was smelly, supposed to get fan in the room. Expensive price for... More

We had a great 5 night stay here. The location is fantastic right on the front, ask for a room with balcony is possible, fantastic views. Breakfast is more than adequate just continental, fresh coffee and loads of salami on request! The family who run it are laid back, friendly and helpful. We visited with friends and others who were... More

Super convenient to the the ferry. Can walk to Villa Carlotta with a short walk. Awesome view of Bellagio across the lake. Breakfast won't knock your socks off, but was certainly plenty. Simple decor. Like any hotel worth staying at in this area, it is right on the main street; as we had the windows open for the breeze off... More

The Riviera is an excellent place to stay,- centrally situated on the lake, with a car ferry across to Bellagio regularly, and from there on to almost anywhere. The room was quite large, with a large and well appointed bathroom; breakfast was a very good buffet, and within an easy walking distance, there are a number of quite good restaurants,... More

Spent a week at Lake Como with some long time friends. The trip was a wonderful experience and it was especially nice staying at the Hotel Riviera, we felt like family being there. Our host Andrea always offered great suggestions on where to go and what to do, and was always there to welcome us back from our excursions, with... More

What a delight this was - so very reasonable and my Osso Bucco on polenta mash was 'to die for' - just as I had pictured for my Italian holiday - dining al fresco under grape trellis overlooking magical Lake Como, across to Bellagio. What a sight. Waiter crossed the road from inside dining of hotel, but we Aussie ladies... More

I just returned from a week at Lake Como.....wish I was still there! There were nine of us in our group, all friends. We all agreed Hotel Riviera was perfect for us. The family treatment is so much more than what a larger establishment can give. Andrea had great suggestions for us to do that will forever be in our... More

It didn't start off to well(I'll explain later) but ended great. Andre ?? and his sister were the perfect hosts, very friendly and gave some good pointers for what to do. Also Cocoa was very friendly:) Typical Continental breakfast which was great and lovely conversation with Andre at breakfast. Of course the rooms with a balcony are the best, but... More

After traveling for 12 hours we arrived pulling our 24 inch suitcases a block from the ferry to the Riviera. From the moment we saw the building we knew it would not work out. We did check in however and upon the lugging our 24 inch suitcases into a tiny elevator, getting off in a dark, old, dingy hallway we... More
