I rented a studio suite on the lakeside from June 23-July 2, 2012. For anyone who knows about accommodation in Riva del Garda, or indeed any of the towns and villages on the lake, finding affordably priced, decent accommodation on the lake is generally not possible. So I recommend this place for the traveller who, while on a budget, likes comfort and is independent, i.e. you will be eating out at a minimum, if at all, and will be preparing your meals in your apartment from goods bought at the local grocery store, which is located about 300 metres away toward the centre of town on the main road, the Via Rovereto. The Porafina Beach is only a 5 minute walk away. The Sailing Club is next to the Residence and is a popular spot with locals, who are generally laid back and friendly. An excellent wine store called Delerium Tremens is only a hundred or so metres away, and a bank with ATM is within handy distance. Also, the regional bus stop is only about 50 metres away in the direction of the centre of town. So the place is well situated. I would highly recommend paying the extra 10 euros though to get a suite lakeside, as the Via Rovereto is busy at any time of the day through the summer and sitting out on a balcony streetside would not be a pleasant experience. You should be conversant in at least very basic Italian, by the way, as the genial owner, Mario, speaks virtually no English.
