“Great surprise! Cheap, cosy and newly refurbished hotel in ischia downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Our stay at the Rivamare was a great surprise: the hotel is right on the beach, 3 min walk from the city center, it has been recently refurbished, rooms are small but cosy and very clean with a/c, tv, hairdryer. We paid only 60€ so i strongly suggest it to anyone who wants to stay in the center of Ischia. It is only 20 min walk from ischia ponte which is one of the best attractions of the island. Try the Giardino degli Aranci - the restaurant at the top of the hotel street - it is an unexpecyed folkloristic experience.

Lovely hotel only ten mins walk from the ischia marina and located 10 feet from the beach. Plenty of restaurants, shops and cafes nearby.
Hotel is nice, clean and hidden down a quiet street. The single room is a tiny, tiny space tucked in along the passage at the back of the hotel. The bed is a French day bed, at 5'8 I was touching the end of it, so I don't recommend this style room for anyone taller! The bathroom is clean but awkward to manoeuver, and the shower height can be adjusted. Hairdryer doesn't work and toilet had issues.
Staff in morning are very welcoming, full of compliments. Private beach access is provided and for seven euros you can chill here all day. Breakfast included but you are better heading to a cafe for a real coffee and brioche!

We stayed at the Hotel Rivamare for one night only. We chose this hotel based on price, location and the Trip Advisor reviews and given that it was August, high season for Italians, we were afraid we would not find a quality hotel. Not the case here. It's close to the main port and if you're going for value, you can't go wrong with Rivamare. The free breakfast was the standard Italian offering...pastries, breads with meats & cheeses, yogurt, cereals, coffee machine, juices. The staff is very friendly and the room was a nice size and clean. We were happy with the hotel and would definitely recommend.

We stayed at the Rivamare for 3 nights at the end of September and, after seeing some of the other hotels we were deliberating about, were so glad we chose this hotel. The location was perfect for the small beach (i.e. right on it) and convenient for exploring the island and strolling around Ischia Porto during the evening. There is a small charge to use the small section of beach in front of the hotel but, as we only had a short break and the weather was mixed, we just strolled along the beach and had a swim on one of our days without actually paying for the facilities. We would advise booking one of the seaview rooms with terrace, The room (309) had a huge terrace and was spotlessly clean, the staff extremely helpful and the breakfast ok

We stayed for a weekend and we loved it. the staff was very friendly and professional, the room was very clean and the balcony on the Mediterannean Sea was huge. We did a lot of sightseeing around the island (that is beautiful) but probably should have just stayed in Ischia Porto and enjoyed the beautiful hotel and its terrace, the food and the nice shopping. Hopefully next time! Highly recommended.

My sister and I stayed here for 5 days and had a great stay. The staff are very friendly and most helpful with any queries about Ischia and where to go. The hotel is within 5 minutes walk of Ischia Porto and transport but is in a very quiet location on the beach. The room was spacious and clean and extra pillows were provided when requested. The breakfast each morning was sufficient and delicious.

We arrived at the Rivamare hot and tired, and were immediately offered a chilled drink on the terrace. A great start!

We stayed in room 309, which has a HUGE terrace (see pics) with 180 degree views of the sea. It had a table and chairs, deckchairs, and still loads of space leftover. Our room was not big, as it had an extra bed in it, but it was clean and prettily decorated. It did smell slightly of cigarettes (possibly coming from the room next door) so perhaps it would be better to request a non-smoking room if this bothers you. The air conditioning was the best I've ever experience, essential in July as it gets very, very hot.

All the staff that we met were delightful, always gracious and smiling. Breakfast is served on the lovely breakfast terrace, and consists of the basics, bread rolls, croissants, doughnut type creations, yoghurt, fruit juice and cereal. All fresh and still plenty to choose from even at the end of breakfast time.

Ischia itself is beautiful, the main street is full of pretty shops and restaurants, and is lined with oleander trees. It was busy with people wandering until gone midnight even midweek while we were there - a really lovely atmosphere. The Rivamare is only one minute from the main street, but it is completely peaceful and right on the beach. Perfect location, I would definitely stay there again.
