“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

My husband and I had a wonderful 3 night stay and it completely lived up to expectations,
the staff were beyond helpful. The position of the hotel was great as you can just sit out and enjoy the view of the lake or walk to the town, everything is in walking distance.
We also hired two bikes and rode to neighbouring towns which was fantastic, it really is a bike friendly area.
We would def recommend this hotel and are hoping to return very soon.

This was our first trip to Lake Garda and it won't be our last. The Lido Palace is a lovely minimalist hotel with outstanding views of the lake and mountains. We stayed in room 201 with lake and mountain views. We had a standard room which was very spacious and adequate with bath and separate shower room. Plenty of toiletries and towels. The room was spotless. One criticism would be the lack of a mirror in bedroom to dry hair etc. plenty of hanging spaced.


The staff were delightful and eager to help from the minute we arrived. Lovely gardens and swimming pool and spa.

Domenico and Maurizia were charming at all times and obviously enjoy working at the Lido Palace..

Marco kept us entertained every night while we were having dinner on the terrace.

Can't wait to return. Thankyou!

We have been to Riva del Garda many times in the past 20 years, but decided to seek a new experience this time. So here we are at the Lido Palace the rooms are minimalistic but totally charming and of good size, the hotel sits right on the bank of Lake Garda and the views are just amazing both by day and by night. The staff here are also something else, from the moment you get to reception you know that you have made a good decision to stay at this hotel. Then there is the bar with great lunch time dining, comfortable furniture and amazing staff under the watchful eye of Dominica. But this hotel has another amazing side, a restaurant that serves some of the best food we have had anywhere in the world.

It is in an area with great walks frequent steamers up and down the lake and a plethora of wonderful things to do.

This hotel has provided us with a holiday that can only be described as simply the best

Room Tip: Impossible they are all great value for money and outlooks include lake and gardens, just make a cho...

This trip was for my 50th birthday, so I emailed a few hotels months ago. Lido Palace replied very promptly to all my emails, so well done to the reservations team.
It is a modern interior but very comfortable. We had room 109 which, although was a normal room, had a large terrace with lovely side view of the lake. Good sized rooms with large comfortable beds and we didn't hear a sound from any neighbours.The only slght complaint would be that there needs to be a mirror by the dressing table, for hair drying etc.
All the staff were very helpful and friendly, front desk giving us bike maps and sorting our return transfer trip due to slight flight time change. Couldn't fault any of them.
We used the spa, beautiful area, and had a very good meal in the restaurant one night.
The location of this hotel is probably the best around, a few minutes walk from the centre, so away from the hustle and bustle, but a lovely stroll by the lake to restaurants, shops and ferries.
Riva is a wonderful place to stay, and we were so glad we stayed at Lido Palace.

Room Tip: Room 109 and 110 have a large terrace.

Good afternoon Mrs MidlandsSophie,
I want to thank you for your sincere feedback and sharing your experience during your visit in Riva del Garda recently nominate as the "Best place to live in Italy"
Be proactive, efficient and clear during the reservation process is part of our main duty and we are very attentive on that. I will not miss the opportunity to share with the booking office your level of esteem.
I am so glad you were comfortable, enjoyed the CXI Spa facilities and the beauty of the rooms although just adding a mirrow would be appropriate. We can afford it!
I hope we'll have the honor of hosting you again in the future!
kindest regards

I have travelled to Riva del Garda many times but this is the first time I have stayed in such a wonderful hotel there. The whole family (five of us) stayed there for five days to celebrate my wife's birthday. The location could not be better as it is close to the lake but also in very close walking distance to the centre of Riva and all the shops and restaurants. The staff are impeccable and are very well trained and helpful. The breakfast offers pretty much everything and was of high quality. The room itself was very comfortable (especially the bed, which is very large) and well equipped. My only criticism is that the bathroom is more style over substance and the hand basin really annoyed me. Also you must be prepared for everything to be very modern albeit in a classical setting. The swimming pools both inside and out are excellent and well maintained and there are plenty of sun loungers and places to relax undisturbed. It isn't cheap, but for this standard you wouldn't expect it to be. We loved it!

Thank you Dear Mr Nick N for having chosen the Lido Palace while staying in Riva del Garda.
Just 7 months ago this area has been nominated the “Best place to live in Italy” by the major Italian newspapers and we are very happy to know that you enjoyed the stay with us very much. We are very focused and committed in terms of friendliness and service while the rest is done by the hardware such as the 1,500 sqm CXI Spa (including two swimming pools), two restaurants and comfortable rooms and suites. As far as the bathroom is concerned, although I may understand your point of view, the Archistar provided to furnished this facility with Corian material which is recognized as more hygienic and precious compared with marble.
I wish to have the chance to welcome back at the Lido Palace and in the meantime, I remain with best regards

This is a very impressive hotel in all kinds of ways. The location is ideal, the buildings impressive and unusual, the staff extraordinarily helpful, the rooms sleek and modern, the restaurant exceptional (and what a view! ), and a wonderful overall ambience.
Sitting at the outside bar after dinner and taking in the view with the excellent piano player in the background...we agreed life can't get much better (true...at some expense!)
Particular kudos to the front desk people, the restaurant staff and the manager...professional, warm and caring.
The coming together of the sleek modern style in the context of the grand old building is unique and for the most part works very well...although the bathroom sinks are form without function!
We highly regretted we had only one day here and look forward to return.

It is with great pleasure that I read about your recent experience at Lido Palace in Riva del Garda. It is wonderful to know that you enjoyed every details of your day with us, from the food and service of Re della Busa restaurant to the pianobar at the Balì Bar terrace as well as the ambiance and the harmony between the modern style in combination with the historical asset (Lido Palace is 115 years old).

We stayed here for 2 short nights as part of our 2 week vacation in Italy. We knew when we booked our room that this place would be special, but we had no idea it would knock our socks off! This hotel is like a little slice of paradise in Riva del Garda. The hotel's spacious grounds are in a gated area that make it seem like a private park that keeps the riff raft out. Every single person at this hotel was very friendly and seemed to genuinely care about us and making sure our needs were met. We stayed at 3 - 5 star hotels during our vacation to Italy, and Lido Palace was BY FAR the best! The breakfast spread and options are fantastic, as well as the patio you get to eat breakfast on. Dinner was splendid as well and we liked out large the hotel and grounds were. It did not feel like you were on top of the other guests or vice versa.

Our room was very spacious and overlooked the lake. We liked walking from the hotel, as the lake is very close for swimming - and gelato is right out the back gate as well. You can walk into the city center from the hotel also.

I wish I could be more specific, but this hotel really knows what they are doing. They put the guests needs first and don't treat anyone like they don't belong there. We really liked the spa also - I fell asleep on the water bed in the salt room for almost 2 hours!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In a spectacular location on the northern edge of picturesque Lake Garda, Lido Palace is a stunning Belle Époque building, set within 19th-century gardens filled with fragrant cypress, cedar and magnolia trees. Recently renovated, the Liberty Style palace impresses with contemporary interior design which epitomizes chic modernity. The rooms - almost a symbiosis of light, nature and elegant interior design - are modern, wide and bright spaces taking advantage of the contrast between the minimal style of the interiors and the romantic view on Lake Garda. The 1,500sq m spa offers a collection of globetrotting treatments, including a Finnish sauna, Mediterranean bath, Indian massages and Native American stone treatments. Its guests are invited to enjoy the serenity in an elegant setting tasting savory meals by Chef Giuseppe Sestito. Tremani is the hotel's more laid-back lunchtime eatery offering healthy imaginative meals. For intimate evening meals, Il Re della Busa is decadent and distinguished, with exquisitely rendered morsels of haute cuisine in sleek designer surroundings and backlit views of the grounds. The restaurant overlooks the gardens, which are a mix of manicured lawns and forested foothills, grab a seat by the window to gaze upon them as you eat. If it's a balmy night, get a table on the balcony deck. Fine-dining chefs are usually fiercely protective of their recipes, but chef Giuseppe Sestito will happily share some of the secrets to his creations. ... more   less
