“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

It was a pure pleasure to discover this hotel with great location on the sea, but also with nice view on the mountains. I had a mountain view room, at sixth floor (room 605) and the view was really spectacular. The hotel is newly renovated and you can see this in every design details. The entrance, the terrace and the breakfast room are very smart and bright, the colours are beautiful and the furniture is modern and ergonomic. The best part is the staff: the reception people are friendly and helpful, the chambermaid did an excellent job (the room was spotless) and the breakfast ladies can smile even early in the morning.
The only minus is the distance to the old town and the rocky beach near the hotel. A much better beach is “Les Sablettes”, 20 min walk from Riva Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor and don't avoid the mountain view rooms.

Hotel Riva is excellent value for your money. Very easy access by bus from Nice, the bus stop is right next to the hotel. Hotel is clean and fresh, they have a good AC and a secure luggage room in case you need one.
Hotel Riva is just across the street from the nearest beach and rooms facing the sea have the most amazing view. Breakfast is quite expensive, but you can always enjoy your own breakfast sitting on the balcony admiring the fantastic view!

Room Tip: Choose the room with a seaview!!

we stayed here for a week recently. had a room with a balcony, 3rd floor overlooking the sea. was excellent.
sound proofing was not great so if that's an issue that may be not so good for you. the housekeeping staff were excellent, the hotel staff were maybe a bit aloof........ certainly not friendly...... on the day we were checking out we had checked the time for check out and it was 12 noon...... as we were not leaving Menton till that evening we ahd wanted to stay in room till nearer 12 but were still going to make sure we were checked out BY 12. at 11.30 there was a phone call from reception just to make sure we were definitely going..... I don't think this was needed. Also we hired bikes and attempted to leave them on the deserted terrace and the "barman" who had never spoken to us before rushed out and said we couldn't leave them there and suggested putting them between guests parked cars and the railings on the other side..... potentially damaging the car........

Room Tip: sea view 3rd floor or above

Very polite and service minded personel at nice and quiet hotel. The hotel is located about 10 min. nice walk from the Old Town and just across the water front. Unfortunatly, we did not have rooms with seaview, which we at a sligthly higher cost absolutely should prioritize. Nice and clean rooms with balcony, aircondition and ok beds. A nice breakfast buffet with possibility to eat outside.

Recently, we spend two nights at the Riva Hotel in Menton, France. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was ample with clean beds and bathroom. A few days prior to our stay..we had made arrangements to leave our large luggage while we traveled onto Santa Margherita and Cinque Terre. Our arrangements fell into place without question. Upon return, the hotel was marvelous, great location for walking into Old Town and touring Menton, and the 110 bus from Nice Airport stops directly in front of Riva. The continential plus breakfast was an additional 13 Euro but much more than cafe & croissant.
I would recommend the hotel to any who wants to be out of Nice and close enough to Monte Carlo to go for lunch or dinner.

Room Tip: Right on the border of France & Italy. Easy travel to Monte Carlo for lunch r dinner by bus, Re...

Planned to stay for 1 night but stayed for 2. Very clean and updated modern decor. Right on promenade with bright colourful lobby and very helpful staff. It was the nicest hotel over our 2 weeks travelling vacation. The hotel is booked solid over the Formula 1 race this coming weekend with returning clients over the past couple of years. Menton is a refreshing place to stay over the crazy prices and crowds of Monte Carlo and Nice...you will love the Riva Hotel!!!
