“fantastic views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

This was a very nice hotel with fantastic views over Riva,but the only disadvantage was that it is on a steep hillside,there was however a short cut to the lake,,and a free shuttle bus but this was not run all day.Staff were very pleasant,but hotel could have done with extra staff at the evening meal.We were not happy with the seating arrangements at meal times but this was due to us being with the Travelsphere group

Very clean pool area. Swim or overlooking the Dolomites!! - bliss!!
Will be returning next year!!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking lake a must. Balcony recommended!!

I travel widely ; this year I have visited 5 different countries and stayed at 8 different hotels all rated 4 star and above however this was my first solo holiday and I was truly impressed with this hotel and the brilliant service I received and I returned regenerated and I can wholeheartedly recommend it And will return again and again
I have food allergies and Marco and his staff were extremely considerate of this ,so that I enjoyed wonderful breakfasts and delicious four course dinners every night ,the food is scrumptious .
The hotel is spotlessly clean comfortable and being small though having all the amenities of larger hotels including a wonderful pool and spa , and free wifi throughout (and the staff are so friendly and helpful )it is an ideal location for anyone considering travelling alone and the location is magical
The attention to detail and customer care was excellent and thankyou Marco and all your wonderful team

We have just returned from a holiday on Lake Garda and stayed at Hotel Benacus, Riva del Garda and I would like to thank the management and staff for a very enjoyable stay with them. We foune the hotel to be ideally situated, elevated from the town with splendid views and because of its elevation the hotel enjoyed a very tranquil and peaceful recluse for a relaxed holiday. The hotel is very pleasantly furnished and well equipped with the dinning area having a overhanging balcony enjoying views over the pool ,lake,vinyards and town. A visit to the hotel website will confirm my high opinion of this very impressive hotel.
Once again, "Thank You Marco and your staff".

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and a balcony if available

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay at the Hotel Benacus and would reccomend it to any-one.The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. A mini-bus was availabie to take us to and from the town centre and the views over the lake were fantastic.

Had a brilliant holiday at this hotel would recommend it to anyone as had superb food very clean and all the staff were very helpful and friendly.The hotel has amazing views of the lake and mountains but is situated on a steep hill so need to be fit to walk up but free minibus shuttle is provided twice evry morning and again in the late afternoon.Would have liked to have stayed longer,

We've just returned from a week at this hotel, booked through Travelsphere. We weren't sure what to expect of a 3 star hotel in Italy but Hotel Benacus really was lovely, immaculately clean throughout and with the most wonderful views of Riva and Lake Garda. We paid a little extra for a lake view and it really was a joy to wake to those views every morning. The rooms have air conditioning, though we didn't need to use it (unfortunately!) and are generally very well appointed. Our bathroom was a good size and was cleaned and fresh towels provided every day. Some of our group stayed in a 4 star hotel down in the town and although they would have had easier access to the town, I would opt for the Benacus any day because of its beautiful location. The hotel offers a courtesy shuttle bus service down the hill twice during the morning and back again twice in the late afternoon and although we didn't use it, several of our group needed it because of the steep hill. But because of its situation we never heard any traffic - only birdsong. The food was lovely, with an excellent selection at the morning buffet and also the evening meals and all the food is freshly cooked by the chef. The staff are friendly and a credit to the hotel. I would certainly go back to the Benacus and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Definitely try and get a room with a lake view.
