Riva is a great hotel with stylish rooms, comfortable beds and a wonderful view of the harbor. The location is great - ferries dock just a few steps away and the best restaurants are just a short walk away. Breakfast outside on the patio overlooking the harbor was delightful.
The location can also be a bit of a negative, as loud music from the nearby bars like Carpe Diem goes well into the early hours. Though I had no trouble sleeping the two nights I was there - apart from being awakened briefly by drunken English guys chanting - this might not be the best spot if you're a light sleeper or traveling with kids.
The ladies at the front desk were some of the most pleasant and helpful that I've encountered. Goleta, in particular, was incredibly sweet, going out of her way to help locate a boat ticket that was supposed to have been left at the desk for me but wasn't.More
