We spent a week at the Residence Vechhio Porto. Our apartment was really unusual, it is carved out of the mountain. Although some of the apartment was a bit dusty, it was generally clean and the linen and towels etc were spotless. The terrace had a gas bbq so we only really used the inside of the apartment to sleep in!! Its in a perfect location and is a lovely walk along the Lake side into the main town. Its position is perfect. If your expecting 5 star luxury then this isnt the place for you, but if you want a stunning location, right on the lake in relaxing and welcoming accommodation then this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Apartment 117 sleeps four but is only separated by two steps so are not really private. Would suit...

I just returned from 4 days at the Excelsior. It was wonderful. The suite we had was perfect for our family. It was very clean and the view was amazing. We could jump in the pool or the lake for a swim. For those of you seeking it all, you will find it here. Even though the Residence does not have any hotel like services, the staff is very friendly and helpful, everything you need is a 10 minute stroll down the promenade. Restaurants, ship departures, the local spa and grocery stores are all within comfortable walking distance. We used our kitchen to prepare simple, quiet breakfasts on our lake side terrace. One day we were having so much fun we stayed in our suite all day, made lunch, swam and watched the ships come into the harbor. For the sporty types the Residence is situated directly on the via Ponale hiking and biking paths. The hiking path has breathtaking views over the north end of Lake Garda. We hope to come back next year. CJD Naples, FL- Bad Aussee, Austria

We spent 2 weeks at the Residence Vecchio Porto Excelsior and realy had a wonderful time.
The view from the hotel is just brethtaking. You are right on the lake, and in the back of you have the montain ( some of the roms even have walls carved into the montains... not yours since we were in Suite 45 that overlooks the whole place ).
When staying in the hotel you can realy feel that it is a historical place. How it is rooted in the late 19th century, but alos in the 1930's and the "dolce vita" of the 1960's.
Our room was just fully renovayed with an architectural twist to it since you couls see the whole metal struture supporting the roof. It was never realy too worm even in the hot sume days. During the day you could let all the windows open and feel the light breth coming from the lake.... and at night everything would could down. So we never had to use the air conditioning. The kitchen had all you needed to prepare a nice italian meal... witha brand new fridge, dishwasher and washing machine.
The pool was never crowded and and there were always enough room to enjoy the sun and refreshing atmosphere around it.
The people of the hotel were extremely kind and helpful. They could tell you everything about the history of the reagion, where to go and what to eat... and even all about the shops in Riva or in the nearby small cities around the lake.
A wonderfull place, very quiet, where just looking at the view is apeasing...

Very nice view, but I definetly cannot recommend this appartment to anybody. During the season the appartment ist very expensive and has severe shortcomings: the furniture is old, the appartment is not clean and it smells badly. At the ceiling there was fungi.The full price has to be paid in advance (the renter knows why).

There are few reviews of this residential hotel - and those I could find were not so positive. Our experience was terrific. The people who run the hotel were extremely helpful and responsive to the few things that I wanted but did not initially find in the apartment. We stayed in Suite 117 - it was odd, unique and wonderful for us. The most dramatic bathroom you ever have seen - and spacious. We loved it.
