My husband and I spent several nights in the "annex" this past week. The apartment (#4) was beautiful - larger than we even needed with a living/kitchen/bathroom area downstairs and our bedroom overlooking the living area with an amazing view. Everything was clean and in good working order. I loved the location, with a scenic walk to the historic center.... More

We spent 3 nights in one of the new Suits. The Suite was cozy and veeery big! The view is amazing and the Staff are very friendly. We thank Sara and the Gentleman at the Reception (maybe the owner, sorry I didn´t ask his name!) for the nice welcome! If you are looking for a big place where you can... More

Dear Guest. Thank you so much for your stay and your words. Our position on the lake is super! The Mini/Economy apartments with private access to the lake are very requested and like so much.

Very good location and great to be practically on the lake. But, the rooms are in need of upgrading. And there are too many rules regarding everything. Friend are not allowd to visit unless it has been approved by the management. Unfriendly staff. Will probably not go back..

We spent a week here, on the ground floor right on the lake. If one is tough enough - and lots of kids and northern Europeans were - it was just one jump into the lake. There is an elevator to get to your room, a nice swimming pool ( a bit warmer than the lake), and the owner is... More

We booked a couple of nights on the day prior to arriving, as part of our 12-day European road trip from England, and we were so glad we did ...

We stayed at the Hotel Excelsior for a week in July this year. It is situated right on the lake a few minutes walk from the town of Riva del Garda. Our one-bedroom apartment was the glass box built on top of what is a much-extended historic hotel. It had the most amazingly beautiful view around the lake and back... More
