“fantastic hotel and town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Lido Palace for five days this May and found to be everything we hoped for and more. It's the right size: it's been thoughtfully and beautifully renovated: and it's in a charming town (Riva del Garda) at the northernmost tip of Lake Garda. Lots of German, Swiss and Italian tourists. almost no Americans and everything is a short walk away from the hotel. Local wines (especially the whites) were fabulous and the food of course was perfect. Viva l'Italie!

Location by the beautiful Garda lake, staff, services, food, architecture and interior design - everything is special in this hotel. Close to city center where the little restaurants, gellaterias and shops are located, and at the same time quiet and private.

Room Tip: I would recommend a lake view room on a higher floor in order to have total view of the lake. Beauti...

Thank you Mrs Monica303506 for the nice and complete "picture" you have outlined on the destination, staff attitude, services and landscape. The historical building combined with modern interior design put the final touch on your postcard.
Thank you once again and I hope to welcome back in the future at the Lido Palace

Excellent hotel with uncompromising levels of service carefully balanced with respect for your space and privacy. Set in a stunning location on the shores of the lake and just 10 mins walk to the cafes and restaurants of the old town. A lake view room with a balcony is definitely a benefit. The staff are simply perfect, attentive but discrete. Your own quiet space, but not isolated. A most enjoyable 10 days in a perfect hotel.

Thank you very much Mr Simon B for your act of kindness versus our property facilities and for the acknowledgement of the high quality services delivered by the Lido Palace staff. It represents for sure a sort of wish to achieve the top-level and in this way I will share it with all the employees.

When deciding where to stay in Riva del Garda I have to admit I was drawn in by the very flashy website and stunning images. The trip was a surprise birthday present to my other half so I was very nervous about it living up to my expectations....
I am pleased to report it did, in every detail. On arrival the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. In fact at every stage of our 3 night visit the staff were almost beside themselves with helpfulness. We have stayed in a number of 5 star hotels and I have to say the service here is probably the best we have encountered.
The hotel layout is wonderful and the design of the restaurant/spa area is well considered and immaculately finished. Very minimalist inside but with touches of elegance throughout. Amazing location within stones throw of Lake Garda. 2 minute walk in Riva and easy access to a main road.
We ate at the Michelin star restaurant one evening and were not disappointed. Food was fantastic, no complaints at all. The breakfast food was also of a high standard, the coffee - superb.
All in all this was a trip we will not forget and aim to return to this hotel at some point.
I have 2 minor (and I mean minor) negative remarks. 1. The beds are VERY hard and so I recommend asking for a soft cover if you prefer a softer bed. 2. We had to call reception a couple of times for our 'complimentary waters' instead of them being delivered each night. These two things are very insignificant when taken in context to the whole experience. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is considering this hotel. Don't hesitate.....just book and enjoy :)

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have much of a lake view so remember to ask when booking if that is important t...

friendly staff made our stay a pleasure, junior suites are nice and spacious except a tiny TV in a large suite. Restaurant food and services excellent and reasonably priced. Breakfast buffet does not quite meet standards. Hotel is nicely located, quiet (which is seldom in Italy) yet closed to downtown shopping and directly at Lago di Garda. As usual in Italy rooms are ultramodern.

Room Tip: go for junior suite

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lido Palace. Though the weather wasn't perfect, the hotel was perfection! I highly recommend the Junior Suites, which are spacious and well appointed with king sized beds, seating area and work spaces. The bathrooms feature a large sink, bathtub, separate shower stall and toilet. Our only quibble with their design is that the bathrooms have no door, which can limit privacy. The contemporary design of the room, lake views and spotless housekeeping combined to make it a pleasure to enjoy these accommodations. We made use of the lovely hotel bar, Il Re Della Busa restaurant ( not to be missed) and the fantastic spa. A generous buffet breakfast was served each morning and included in our package rate.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The quaint town of Riva del Garda can be reached with just a five minutes walk. The Lido Palace offers a restful yet active holiday combined with luxurious surroundings and wonderful service. We cannot wait to return!

We stayed at Lido Palace on the 24.5-27.5.2013. Despite of experiencing slightly poor weather during our stay, this was compensated by all what we experienced in the hotel. Service from the start was great, restaurant offered excellent food with expertise and we enjoyed of the facilities what the hotel could offer. We spent a memorable stay and will surely come back one day.

Dear Ismo and Jaana, I am delighted to know that your experience at the Lido Palace has been excellent throughout the stay although the weather condition has not been as the period should be.
It is really rewarding to hear that the services and the staff behavior have in some way compensated the lack of nice weather.
I hope to welcome back at the Lido Palace
