“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The first time that we stayed at the Europa was in 1989! Like a recent reviewer we also have spent many happy weeks, always in a lake view room - probably out of the 25 years we have visited Riva about 15 or 16 times, and as Hoola13 said "always at the same Hotel" Our paths must have crossed! We have seen the previous family grow up and now move from the Hotel business. The new managers are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is excellent. There is a help yourself salad/buffet before the starter which is beautifully set out. The Gala Dinner once a week starts with a sparkly drink and vol au vents in the lounge. The cook and kitchen staff must work very hard to produce such a wonderful range of food which is on offer each evening. We booked in December 2012 for our stay in July, 2013. We asked for a lake view room with balcony. Marion on reception said in her e.mail that she could give us the lake view, and would do her best to get us a balcony. On our arrival we found that we had both. Only one little thing. The air-conditioning is controlled from reception. Each room has to ask at reception for their choice of whether they want it to turned on off each day. As far as the room is concerned, we found it to be modern, comfortable, not noisy and the bathroom had adequate supply of soap, shampoo etc. We travel by car so do a round trip of Europe each year staying in many hotels. The Europa is great.

I have just returned from my 16th visit to Riva, 13 times at this Hotel!! (twice this year!) I cannot recommend it highly enough, The staff are wonderful, very helpful at all times and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is excellent with a huge choice for dinner each evening and they hold a weekly "Gala Dinner" with live entertainment. The Hotel is spotlessly clean, spacious and bright with a lovely large lounge having open balcony doors overlooking the Piazzas and lakefront below. They have a "Happy Hour" between 5-7pm each evening with reduced price drinks, they also have bicycles available for guests to use free of charge. The Europa is in the perfect location and is ideal for less mobile guests too as everything is on the doorstep, also, the buses to the western side of the lake stop just outside the main entrance. I have booked again for next year and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are perfect for people watching!!

Spent one night in Best Western Europa in Riva during a weekend. Had limited options since most of the hotels were overbooked and Riva is an expensive place (at least for accommodation) during summer.
The good points: The location is good, and if you are lucky you can probably get a room with some nice lake view. The stuff is quite helpful and friendly and a very positive thing is that their english is quite good. Rooms are also spacious (compared to other options in Riva).
The bad points: The hotel is quite old and needs renovation. While this is not necessarily bad, the problem is with the rooms that have no soundproof (we could clearly hear conversations from next room). There are no blinds in the rooms, meaning that you get up very early in the morning by the sun. We had very few amenities (soap, shampoo) although we booked a double room for 2 persons.
Breakfast is average for a 4* hotel.
The pool..well, I doubt if it can be considered as a pool or a big jacuzzi. It is literally 5x2 meters and on our last day it was closed for maintenance (probably because it was Sunday and most of the guests were leaving) without any notice from the reception.
I would have given a better score if we hadn't paid 150 euros for 1 night!

Recently spent a week at this hotel, first week in July 2013 with Riviera Travel.
A truly outstanding hotel with great food and I cannot speak highly enough of the staff who were so polite and helpful.
Riva is a lovely place to stay and the position of this hotel on the lakeside makes it that much better.

Room Tip: You need to ask at reception to have the air conditioning in your room switched on.

Recently spent a week at this hotel, and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Perfect location right on the lake edge and close to all restaurants, bars etc.Very friendly staff both on reception and in the dining room. Included breakfast and dinner were first class, with the evening meal very varied. Right next to the ferry stops so ideal if you want a trip to other towns around the lake (which we did).
Asked for tea and coffee making facility and was provided with 2 cups and a kettle which had to be plugged in a socket in the bathroom. No tea or coffee provided, but quickly solved this at the local shop. Good aircon which could be regulated inside the room (other reviewers said otherwise).
All in all a great little hotel. Paid extra for a lake view which we thought well worthwhile.

Room Tip: pay extra for a lake view.

Just returned from a week at this smashing hotel. Although it's a Best Western hotel it's more like a small family run hotel. The rooms are a little small but that's no problem. The aircon works a treat but you need to ask reception to turn it off at night if it's a bit too cold for you. The hotel itself is very clean and well looked after. And the location on the harbourside is exceptional.

The staff are very helpful and nothings too much trouble for them. My wife had some problems with the hair drier in our room but that was rectified within 5 minutes of reporting it.

We stayed on a half board basis and the breakfast buffet is good. However, the evening meals are even better. They are 4 courses with an antipasta buffet first course which is lovely. Its so good that if you are a little late eating some of the most popular dishes may have run out. You need to preorder your 2nd course and main meal the previous evening which is unusual but it worked out fine for us.

All in all a very good hotel in a lovely setting in Riva. Consequently I would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel with a lake view are a little more expensive but seeing as we sp...
