“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Apt was clean, manager was very kind and helpful, speaks good English.
We had all the dishes, good electric items such as toaster, kettle... The place is spacey and 5 people can sleep there.
Only we had no internet and view was not so good. Also leaving time is very early - 9 in the morning.
However, I suggest to use it since location is good, close to everything, you have parking and you can walk to any place in Riva. Also the manager can help you all day from morning till 8.a.m.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Positives - the apartments are a 10-15 min walk to the centre of Riva, but they are very close to the beach and ideally placed for walks / cycling to Arco and Verone. The apartments are stylish, very well equiped and the owner / manageress was very helpful indeed. There is a supermarket at the end of the street and an area to park a car.
Negatives - we booked a deluxe apartment expecting a balcony (the expedia description states that each room has a balcony - most apartments have these except one or two). We had no place to sit outdoors and were placed in a rather dark apartment beside the car parking area.We were there for a week and we had nowhere to sit for a morning coffee or an evening drink! If this is important to you, make sure thay you make this a specific condition of the booking at Residence Desiree - Expedia does not make this clear when accepting your reservation. This was a 'major' disappointment (hence the lower rating)on an otherwise great holiday. Riva was a superb destination, but there are better options than the Residence Desiree.

Room Tip: Do not accept a room without a balcony.
