“Good Medium Level Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We stayed for 9 days 'off-season' with extended family in other rooms. Overall a very friendly and pleasant stay. Room was large enough, had a small balcony with ocean view, and a convenient safe. Furniture was sparse. Bed was large enough and quite comfortable. Free WiFi was so-so. Air conditioning was a plus, but the manager turned it off for the building on two nights (off-season).

Breakfast buffet was good. Several excellent restaurants withing walking distance. Convenient to the beach and to the metro for trips to Ostia Antiqua and to Rome. Staff was very helpful and someone who spoke good English was always at the front desk (in the companion Bellavista hotel next door). Shuttle to airport available.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Hotel La Riva and Hotel Bellavista are under the same management. The members of our party who had r...

I spent 3 nights at La Riva Hotel this past summer, and it was really good! Although we asked for a room with a view to the sea, we didn't get one when we checked in. But, the staff was very kind and they made their the best to find us one for the next two nights. Having breakfast looking at the Roman seaside under a warm July sunshine was simply priceless...
The hotel is clean and not far from the station of this local train which takes to Rome downtown in around 30 minutes.
I would totally recommend this place!

Room Tip: Ask for a room located at the first floor!

Hotel La Riva is an O.K. hotel if you do not have other choices. The first room they gace us reeked of cigarette smoke and the manager on duty was a bit defensive about saying that they were non required to have non-smoking rooms. The second room they gave us did not reek of smoke. The rooms are tiny, even compared to the other rooms we stayed at during our trip to Italy. In addition, it appears that there were pigeons nesting directly above our ceiling; at first the noise was entertaining, it then became irritating. Lastly, each of the hotels we stayed in included breakfast, Hotel La Riva had the fewest breakfast options and the breakfast items lacked freshness.
