About the location
Riva del Garda is the northernmost town on Lake Garda and oozes Italian charm, with an historic old town full of winding passageways and a glamorous lakefront promenade.
The atmospheric central square – Piazza III Novembre – is the beating heart of the town, bustling with local boutiques and crowned by the 13th-century Torre Apponale, which offers breathtaking views of the lake from its 100-foot-high terrace. There’s plenty more to see and do, including visiting the fortified town museum and taking a stroll along the picturesque promenade. The town has a great laid-back vibe, and you’ll find many locals and visitors indulging in some downtime by enjoying gelato at the lake’s edge, or perusing some of the quaint shops dotted around the streets.
Thanks to the prime position at Lake Garda’s northern end, visitors can access several pretty towns nearby, including Torbole and Malcesine. The breezy waterside location also means that Riva del Garda is ideal for watersports, with windsurfing being a popular pastime here.
The hotel is 1 hour 5 minutes from Verona. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

Modern hotel with nice rooms, friendly staff and convenient parking. We stayed a couple of nights and the dinner provided with half board treatment was very good (when compared with the average in similar hotels).
COVID19 prevention measures were properly followed and we were pleased to find a complimentary kit with face masks and sanitizing gel in our room.
The skybar on the roof, used also for breakfast, provides excellent views of the surroundings and is great for drinks after dinner, often with live music.
The city center of Riva can be reached in 15-20 minutes with a pleasant walk along the lake.

Wonderful hotel with most helpful, efficient and friendly staff. Accommodation superb and spotlessly clean. Entertainment in evening very enjoyable and relaxing at poolside while listening to live music so special. Pool and loungers kept immaculate at all times. Restaurant food incredible especially Chef Special every evening. Cooked breakfast was available for guests with an early departure time. Hotel mini bus also available for those requiring such service.
