“Great location, not a 4 stars though”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 via mobile

The location can only be matched by other hotels on the piazza, so very well located. Room was clean but small. Breakfast ok but without anything special (same jam, ham, cheese as in any other cheaper places, no fresh bread). Staff was courteous. Parking is conveniently located 50m away but you can park and drop off your luggages in front of the hotel. Overall ok but NOT a 4 stars by any mean, rather a 3 max. Location and price make it a 4, that's it.

Stayed August 2014

Beautifully situated hotel , converted from an old mansion and well modernised .Room was clean and comfortable if not very large ,bathroom was fine . Air conditioning worked well . The food was very good , an excellent selection at breakfast from the buffet , and four courses at dinner , all very enjoyable and the service was extremely efficient .The hotel is a few steps from the lakeside , very convenient for a stroll after dinner with many bars , shops and cafés nearby . We enjoyed our time there .

Room Tip: The rooms at the front can be noisy in the evenings due to all the activities on the lakeside

I have stayed in best western hotels before and have not been disappointed until now! The hotel is in a prime location on the lake with stunning views. However, the hotel itself was extremely disappointing. The rooms were very basic and definitely not value for money. The buffet breakfast was poor and service none existent, with the staff being very sullen. I wouldn't book this hotel again although will definitely return to lake garda which was stunning.

We arrived at Riva Del Garda late afternoon in May, 2014 without a booking and 'happened' on the Best Western Europa. Due to the wonderful location right on the lake with restaurants and shopping right outside, we thought it would be fully booked. However to our delight, staff were very busy but found they had two rooms available both with lake views and the rate was more than reasonable. Rooms were comfortable and very clean, wifi was available, and the food in the restaurant excellent value. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer due to our schedule.
Would have no hesitation in staying again and recommending to fellow travellers.

Just back from a weeks stay at Europa with Riviera travel. Location of hotel is spot on, we had a room with a lake view which was excellent. Having read reviews before we traveled we were a little concerned, one review said that the waiting staff were surly. This proved to be far from true, all the staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it, there was one exception, the "Gala Dinner", roast suckling pig was served but considering that I do not like pork that was my hard luck. Would certainly recommend this hotel and would not hesitate in staying there again.

Room Tip: Go for a lake view, maybe a bit noisier but what the heck, the views of the lake and the piazza are...

We chose the BW Europa on the basis of its location - which is superb, but the star attraction was undoubtedly the restaurant. We travelled with Riviera who appear to have negotiated sole occupancy of the restaurant terrace / conservatory for their clients, the views from which were absolutely stunning and will live in our memory for many years. We have come to expect mediocre food from resort hotels, so we were very pleasantly surprised to find such high standards for both breakfast and evening meals, particularly the antipasti buffet which was always attractively displayed and very tasty.
We had a room without lake views, and the room itself was adequate and comfortable, but not very attractive, which was initially disappointing, but the benefits of the rest of the hotel soon outweighed it. Several reviewers have commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, which we would fully endorse.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return as soon as possible.
