In late May 2011 we stayed at the Hotel Europa on Lake Garda as part of a Riviera Travel booking. On arrival we found the staff most courteous and helpful which continued throughout our week’s stay. Our room was located overlooking the lake, harbour and piazza and we found the extra cost (for the view) well worth it.
Our room was comfortable and a good standard, plenty of wardrobe space and a safe inside, which cost 1 euro per day if you wanted to make use of it (there’s a 10 euro deposit per week). The bathroom had a bathtub as well as shower (over the bath) and was kept spotless each day by the cleaning staff. Everything worked well and there were the usual complimentary toiletries provided.
Breakfast was informal where guests could choose where to sit and weren’t restricted to set tables like some hotels. A few mornings we ate in the first-floor conservatory adjoining the restaurant overlooking the piazza and lake, which was a lovely way to start the day. Breakfast was typical continental, with hams, cheese, yoghurts, croissants, cake, rolls, cereal and toast. Also available at no extra charge were fresh eggs which you could boil to your liking. When we stayed, the staff were very good at quickly replenishing the breakfast food items. There was no stern lady watching every move either (see some previous reviews!)
In the last few weeks the hotel has started to serve evening meals but as we ate out every evening we can’t comment on the quality of the hotel meals.
Would we stay here again? Most definitely – the hotel is perfectly situated for easy access to the town of Riva and regular ferry crossings to Malcesine and Limone.
