Bellavista Hotel Deluxe Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This boutique apartment hotel is ideally positioned in the centre of Riva, between two Piazzas and facing the lake. Our apartment was spacious with a double bed, chairs/table, sofa-bed, TV, a large bathroom and a galley-type kitchen which was very well equipped with all the necessary utensils. The bathroom did not have a shower; a very nice bath with shower attachment was provided instead; hot water was plentiful and with good power so a shower was not missed. We had two balconies: one with chairs and table, the second accessed via a tiny door from the kitchen. Both balconies had spectacular views of the lake, mountains and piazzas. We did not use the air-conditioning – just opened both balcony doors at night to enjoy the breeze. A secure bike garage is a short distance away (3euro per bike per night). The staff were very helpful when we approached them; otherwise they remained discreet but always friendly. This hotel is ideally located for an adult holiday and we could find very little fault. A minor annoyance is the charge for changing the towels during the week (20euro per person). In a hotel of this quality it is expected that towels will be changed as a matter of course. However, this will not stop us returning to this perfectly located and well-run hotel.

Room Tip: Only the 4th floor apartments seem to have true balconies - the other floors have the railings-acro...

Our visit to Riva del Garda was intended to be a breather, a holiday from a holiday. We intended to book a holiday with a lake view, just for the sole purpose of relaxation, and we were correct. This hotel has all the available amenities that would make a stay pleasnt. There is the air conditioned room, clean toilets (pity it doesn't come with a bath), hot water boiler, and good comfortable beds.

Other services include the free breakfast, (fresh eggs, fruit, fresh bread, cereal, different types of ham, various cheeses, fresh coffee, and juices to name a few) and a complementary entrance to the spa.

Hotel staffers were hospitable. Overall, this is quite a recommended place to stay.

Room Tip: For a fee of twenty euros per person per night, you could get a lake view of Riva del Garda, if it i...

We had a studio apartment with a small kitchen which was well-equipped for its size. The whole place is clean and well maintained. The only negatives we experienced were:
1. We wanted 2 separate beds but got one big bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was hard as a rock!
2. The receptionists did their job but it felt a bit frosty. Perhaps I'm wrong but I would blame the invisible owners.
and less important but worth a mention:
3. Your rubbish isn't collected - you have to deposit it in a bin somewhere...I don't know if any other apartment-hotels in Riva do this.
3. They change your towels and sheets once a week. If you want your apartment cleaned you have to pay.
By the way, THE TOILETS DO HAVE SEATS! (I was expecting to sit on cold porcelain!). They don't have lids, which was fine by me.
All in all, it's a good hotel in a central location (short walk to all restaurants) and would deserve an "excellent" review were it not for the above-mentioned shortcomings. None of the rooms has a terrace as far as I know, but there is a terrace above the restaurant which guests can use

Dear client,
I am happy that you enjoyed the flat you reserved

The Residence is in the old town in the pedestrian mall and on the main walk along the lake. For this reason not only the clients but also all the people living in Riva del Garda have to throw away the waste into the foreseen sites of destination.

Obviously you have reserved your holidays in a Residence, a Self Catering Accommodation, as well as for the cleaning as well as for the changing of the towels for the bathroom and the bed linens, that will be changed once a week. On request the change can be made even before.
The apartments have French style balconies, whilst the ones in the upper stair there are huge private terraces, the Residence has also a big terrace with view on the lake “Sonnenterrasse” reserved only for its clients.


The staff of the Residence Bellavista has tried to fulfil all your requests in the best way in order to satisfy all your requirements.
If ever you had any other problem I would have preferred you to let me know.

I hope you were satisfied about your stay and that you have spent a nice holiday here.
If you come back to Italy I hope you will book again a holiday at the Residence Bellavista.

Best regards
The Hotel Manager

We have just returned from a stay at this Hotel in Riva. We booked the Self Catering Apartment. This was very good value for money with lovely views of the Lake. We had a welcome breakfast included on the first morning and the hotel itself was spotless. Very nice interior to the Apartment, spacious and very clean.
We were worried about hidden costs after reading reviews here, but there were none, all costs were as per agreed.

Staff were very friendly . Would recommend it for anyone wishing to stay in Riva

Dear client,
I am really happy to read your review in which you say the staff of the Residence Bellavista is as you describe “lovely”.

The Welcome Drink and the Welcome Breakfast and the present at the depart are services enjoyed by the clients who book at the Residence Bellavista and I am really glad that this is written in the reviews.

The care of the details is our specialty. I am glad that you appreciated the system of the music and the technology we have installed in our structure.
In the bathroom and in the rooms there is a display where the client can select the kind of music he prefers (ambience, jazz, radio, soft, blues) and listen to it in silence.

I hope that Riva del Garda has still got something to offer you that you have not visited yet, all the tourist attractions because in this way you can come back and stay in our structure.

Thanks again for your very nice review
Best regards, see you soon

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 4-11 August, I would have give it a 'good' rating had it been available on your site. We had a self catering apartment which had everything you would need for a week's holiday. We did not plan on doing any real 'cooking' just made light breakfast and lunch and found the kitchenette (incl fridge) was fine for this. The apartment was clean as was the bathroom, and the towels were changed regularly.
You are requested to take your rubbish to bins nearby the supermarket which is about 5 min walk away. We found the staff at reception to be pleasant and helpful.
Our apartment overlooked the 'courtyard' which contained 4 dogs - a previous reviewer remarked on them also, we never found this to be a problem as they never barked once.
The air-conditioning was very welcome as the weather was very hot during our week in Riva.
A couple of restaurants we would recommend are Al Vaticano and Maffei, both of these were only a few mins walk away - the food was served hot and service very good. For a coffee, ice-cream or light meal we would recommend Cristallo cafe, facing the lake by the ferry port, also only a few mins walk away. The hotel had a 'wellness' centre which we did not use, they also had a sun terrace on the roof - an outdoor pool would have been the icing on the cake.
Would recomnmend and return.

Positives:
Room is very spacious and clean.
Stayed in room with a lake view - lovely view (pay extra for room with view).
Small gifts received at check-in and check-out.
Adequate selection at breakfast.

Negatives:
Ultraviolet light in the shower is off-putting.
Carefully check hotel guide for hidden charges! e.g. use of A/C is an extra 10 euro, not mentioned at check-in
Security device installed in the minibar - if items are removed for more than 30 seconds, you will be charged, even if you had no intention of consuming them and put them back!
Toilet had no cover.
Balcony door had no curtains, public could see through glass windows.

Dear client,
I'm reading with attention what you write and I appreciate although the negative points your review.
I wish to inform you that if you had told us immediately about the problems, we would surely have clarified these points and found a suitable solution for your requirements.

The blue LED in the shower has been installed in order to create a relaxing atmosphere with the colours of the bathroom that many other guests appreciated.
In the room there is a book with information where the additional cost are indicated for the clients that stay in a Self Catering Accommodation; that’s why they can't be defined “hidden cost”. In any case I apologize for the bad interpretation of the contains.
The mini-bar in the room has a computerized system and memorizes only the beverages that are really consumed by the guests.
Toilets had no cover, for reasons of hygiene, but had the seat, so that the chambermaid can clean better for our guests. In addition this is a protection for little kids, because closing the cover they can pinch their fingers. In all kindergartens in Italy all toilets are without it.
In the furniture of the rooms was not expected to put the curtains, but the interior shutters.

I hope you have the opportunity to read my detailed answer.
I would be glad to welcome you at the Hotel Bellavista the next time you will be in Riva del Garda.
If there is a new opportunity to have you like our hotel guest we send you our
