“Even so”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

A green, eco-friendly hotel with very helpful and nice staff. The room and bathroom were clean and well-equipped. The breakfast is super! The bar prices are not high, absolutely affordable. There is an outside pool, but for the cold days you can find a Finnish sauna and Turkish bath inside the hotel, where you can relax. There are city bikes for free, but you can hire great mountain bikes, in case you would like to take some better trips in the mountains. At the reception you can find lot of possibilities for trips, or hiking in the surrounding area. The free beach is really close, and there are great restaurants by close. Negatives are the free wifi in the hotel, which is extremely slow and water-pressure in the shower is annoying, sometimes you have almost no water.

If you don't want to live in the middle of the tourist central, it is a really good place for your holiday. It is possible, that you can find better places to stay, but this is absolutely recommended hotel.

Just back from a great week in the Gabry Hotel on the outskirts of Riva Del Garda. This is a lovely hotel about 800 metres from the old town. You can walk to Riva by the roadside or take a lovely amble on winding footpaths adjacent to the lakeside. There are many good reataurants nearby and plenty of ice cream for afterwards.
Hotel Gabry is run by a friendly family who are just there to make your stay special. Lovely clean modern bedrooms have it all, with balconies giving a great view. The breakfast is absolutely stunning with a wide range of foods available including home made cakes and pastries, locally sourced jams and honey. And all this can be taken on the verandah overlooking the large pool (with a separate childrens section) . It was just a bit too chilly when l took a dip one day.
Riva is a great base to travel round the lake or across it by boat and you dont have to go too far to take in some of the other highlights of this area - the Dolomites, Verona or even Venice.
We had a lovely time in Gabry, thank you, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a 1st floor bedroom. They have a great view and some have extra large verandas with 2 steame...

We stayed at Hotel Gabry Apartment which we reserved at the same day as we arrived. The Apartment (number 20) was located some 200 meters apart from the hotel. That was an aparment at apartment house, second floor. There were three bedrooms, two bathrooms, quite big living room and a kitchen with refrigerator and freezer. Two balconies. Furniture were sparse. Clean towels were available daily from the hotel. Cleaning was only once a week, so there were no cleaning during our stay. Hotel breakfast was included, and the breakfast was excellent. Hotel pool was quite small but nice. Personel at reception very friendly and helpful. Few minutes walk to the lake and some 15 minutes walk to the old city. Bikes available for loan at the hotel. Very good choice if you need a quiet place to sleep and change clothes at reasonable price.

This was our second stay at the Gabry and we have booked for next Oct. It's spotlessly clean ,nice rooms, helpful staff and very good breakfast make it perfect for us. You can walk into the town fairly easily or drive, although you have to pay for parking a lot of the time. Another plus for the hotel is free parking.

In 1989 I was a coach driver for a company called Scots Gray's of Darlington. I helped as second driver to take tour to Lake Garda. We stayed at the Hotel Gabry..I was really impressed at how the hotel was run. Since that trip I have been all over. Greek Islands, Caribbean, Egypt, Turkey and more. Although I could not get Gabry out of my head. The thing was my wife liked a beach resort (you know sun bed, sun oil, toasting and lashings of after sun) In 2004 I found out I had D.V.T. So to go to the sun I had to drive. 2004 was the year back on the road and the resort was Jeslo Italy. A three day run? So stop overs. First night Germany Rudishiem B&B fantastic. Second night Italy. Thought Oh the Gabry Riva,remembered from my early days of travel. Got there and realised we needed an extra night. Gabry did it, although we changed rooms.No problem. A nice two days in Riva and at the hotel relaxed. Went down to to the Hotel Cambridge in Jeslo 4 stars and a dump, paid big money. You paid for everything,the pool if you wanted a sun bed, the beach if you wanted to be on it,plus more for a sun bed, if you wanted to sit privately for you food extra.After two days my wife just wanted to go home. So at a great loss withdrew and returned to Riva and the Gabry. At least for a stop over and they just fit us in. Next morning after counting up my coppers and a bit of begging we managed a extra five nights.

My wife is now smitten with Riva and the Gabry and we have driven down every since. Last year we did not go.England and was penniless. This year we are on the up and GOING BACK DOWN.

If you want total relaxation and love being looked after by local caring people please do it. Taxidave

I have booked for this Year in July /August and we are taking our little King Charles Cavalier,she will be a welcome guest.

Room Tip: All rooms are good the upper floors are better and cheaper.

This hotel offered good size clean modern rooms. There was a varied good selection for breakfast. I think it was one of the best buffet breakfasts i have experienced in Italy. The price was good value for Lake Garda although you didnt have a view of the lake, but a short walk and you are by the lake side.

The hotel did not offer an evening meal but there are plenty of restaurants in the town.

I spent one week in Gabry hotel with my family during July. I chose this hotel because of positive reviews on Tripadvisor and also because of accepting dogs as we travelled with Italian greyhound. The accommodation itself was very good.

The hotel is located outside Riva centre in relatively quiet place although just next to busy road. It is about 20 minutes walk from the centre of Riva and we used this way every evening. The only problem for people with dogs is the fact that dogs are not allowed to access main Riva promenade between June and September even if on a leash.

We stayed in superior room Olive, which was spacious enough even for 4 persons and little dog. The room had spacious terrace equipped with stylish furniture.

There was wide range of dishes for breakfast and everything fresh and of a good quality. We could decide if we want to eat outside on the terrace just above swimming pool or inside. The dining room was never crowded although we were there during the main season. Staff were helpful and friendly. There is free WiFi at the hotel which I always appreciate. You can borrow bikes at the hotel but we did not use this opportunity. The area around swimming pool was not crowded as well and we never had a problem to find free sunbeds which is not the case in many other hotels we visited during main season.

If we decide to go to Garda lake next year again (which is a realistic scenario) I will chose the same hotel again.
