“What a great find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

I arrived at the hotel purely by chance, just following the sing at the main road and my gut feeling. And what a find! In front of the hotel is a lawn area at the lake, from where you can walk along the shore to Riva del Garda - a nice stroll of maybe 10 minutes.
The hotel is very pleasant, friendly staff, nice room. My room was on the ground floor and had a little terrace, which was nice in the evening (shared with the next room and overlooking the parking, admittedly, but then that was very convenient with the luggage).
The restaurant serves good food, and breakfast is a nice buffet.
As for the bad point: Wifi, while free, was slow to downright disconnected during late afternoon, but picked up again in the evening. And the rooms are not as noise-insulated as the might be, so if someone has to check out at four a.m. for whatever reason, you might notice...

Bellariva Hotel was one of the best hotel finds I've ever experienced. It's location is perfect, situated right on Lago di Garda (there's a small park between the hotel and the lake with great walking and biking trails), and it's only a short walk - along the lake - from the old town shopping area. The rooms are clean, the staff is very nice and helpful, and the prices are very reasonable. The only critique I might have is that via Franz Kafka (the hotel's street) is a bit difficult to find. But then I realized it's right next to a Flora Gelateria, so that was a bonus!

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so if you don't like steps, try and stay on the first floor.

Well-located boutique hotel on the lake-front in pretty Riva del Garda, this small hotel has a very welcoming restaurant that turns out good fare at extremely decent prices. Gino and his staff are all smiles and very helpful. Families with small children are taken care of properly and there is the option to stay in self-catering apartments next door (with parking space) that gives families with children the extra space that you do not always get in a hotel room.

I stayed here earlier this month on a brief business trip to attend the Riva Expo Exhibition. On arrival the receptionist was very helpful and friendly and when we were allocated a twin room, this was quickly rectified as per my reservation to a double.
The location is excellent - right on the north shore of Lake Garda with beautiful lake and mountain scenery.
The room was very dated and extremely small which was disappointing but bearable. I did have to change hotels however due to the very poor wifi internet availability. Being there on business, wifi access is always essential but the owner / manager was always dismissive of responsibility saying that it must have been our device(s) that were defective!? 2 smart phones, a laptop and an iPad?? Interesting theory and nice try but extremely frustrating considering the nightly price.
The food in the resto was very good and the staff all welcoming and friendly.
Word of warning though, at check out, I went through all meal receipts and there were mysterious additions that had been added. When bills had been put on the room during my stay, this was always quickly agreed to but no copies of any bills were ever provided (only at check out). When I questioned each anomaly, bottles of wine, main courses and other additions were removed without question!!? I'm no detective but I got the feeling this was pretty common practice so be prepared.
Due to the overall experience, I won't be returning to stay at this hotel

The hotel is nearby the shore, beautiful Lake Garda. The food are excellent at the restaurant. Close to shopping mall. Small room. Old facilities. Poor internet connection which I'm disappointed about.

Bellariva hotel has an excellent staff. They were very helpful and nice. The hotel has a good restaurant and the food is priced right. The location was perfect for us, only 15 minute walk from the city center. We were travelling with a car and the hotel has free parking which was totally heplfull because public parking isn't close by.
