Located in front of the Varese lake the hotel is comfortable and friendly. Even if on a raining day the view is still beautiful and peaceful. Relax during summer holidays is ensured. All around the lake the longest European pathways for running or biking offer a pleasant and enjoyable times.

We spent a long weekend in this hotel. Rooms are not large but nicely decorated and extremely clean. The beds are very comfortable and the rainwater shower a nice touch. Breakfast is quite good, with many fresh items - fruit, boiled eggs, croissants, and bread. Good coffee as well - choice of cappuccino, espresso, and Americano. All in all, a...

We spent 2 nights here in a very nice modern room. We were fortunate to be on the second floor with a view of the lake. They also have a nice restaurant and buffet for most meals. We found that for dinner that the buffet is all we needed to order.

We have chosen this hotel for a one night stay. The Hotel is located directly in front of the Lago di Varese. The Hotel room was nice and clean. In the restaurant you can sit outside in the garden enjoying the nice view. You can chose different menu’s, but We missed a little bit to eat ala card. The staff...

Everything about this hotel was excellent - the room, the food, the staff, the view etc. I need to use a wheelchair/mobility scooter and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Thank you.

Superb location on the edge of the lake. We had a lake view on the second floor and it could not have been better. I was concerned about the possible noise from a nearby fun-fair (there just for Easter) but I needn't have worried as the double glazing adequately took care of that. We ate in the restaurant for a...

This was the second time I stayed at Vecchia Riva, and once again it did not disappoint. The staff are great, both in the hotel and in the restaurant. The hotel's situation right beside Lago Varese is second to none, and the restaurant for both evening meal and breakfast is excellent. All in all a great place, that we will...
