Residence Cristine
Reviewed July 3, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Pay the 10 euro supplement to get a lakeside suite.

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The apartment block is located at the San Niccolo marina about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Riva along the lakeside path. Torbole is about 20 minutes walk along the lake side in the other direction. Both places have a good choice of bars and restaurants. There is a Spar shop about 5 minutes walk from the apartment and a larger supermarket a bit further along the road. There are also numerous bars and restaurants close to the aprtment block.
The apartment was spotlessly clean. Towels are provided. It is a studio flat with a small kitcenette area and separate shower room. The kitchen has a fridge and two hot plates, no oven or microwave. There is also no kettle so take your own. There are pots, pans, cutlery, plates and glasses provided. There is an air con unit. The flat has a flat screen TV but only Italian TV channels.
The flat has a balcony with table and chairs. There is also a dining table and chairs inside.
The bathroom is compact and the shower cubicle is tiny but functional.
The sound proofing in the building is a bit suspect and we could hear quite a bit of noise from the neighbouring flats.
Hotels in Riva are quite expensive. The Residence Cristina provides a good value alternative. It is in a good location and the lake view flats all have nice views over the marina and lake. I would avoid the non-lake view rooms though as these overlook the busy main road. The block has parking for each apartment.
The website has a little film of the accomadation which is faintly amusing and actually doesn't do the place justice. If you are lacking mobility it may not be the best location as there is quite a bit of walking involved in getting to and from the town centre.
All in all we very much enjoyed staying here and would return again.

Room Tip: ask for high floor lake view room

For price 275EUR/5nights/2 persons with lake view is good, but when outside temperature is about 5degrees of Celsius, heating with Air Conditioner only is very useless, so we had almost a cold in the room :(. But equipped modern, nice...in summer it must be worthy.
