“A little gem in Riva del Garda!”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

I stayed in this little hotel with my boyfriend this month. We were travelling to Italy and thought we break up the journey by staying a day in Riva del Garda.

The rooms were really cute, I loved the wall sticker decorations! The bed was very comfortable, we slept really well. Our double room wasn't too big but we didn't need more space at all. The whole rome and bathroom were spotlessly clean.

The owner greeted us with a warm welcome, he was very helpful with everything.

The breakfast was delicious too, I loved the cappuccino!

Internet worked very well and fast too.

The views of the mountains were beautiful from our french balcony, our room was in the main building.

The location was great too, just a 10 minute walk from the old town and the lake, which was nice it was a nice and quiet street.

We are planning on going back to Riva, we will definitely stay at this hotel then! :o)

What a lovely place to stay. Small and very friendly it made me want to buy a place on the same street to holiday. 5 mins stroll outside the old walled town just away from the ridiculously priced hotels. Great value for money. The rooms were spotlessly clean. Small but perfectly formed. All white with beautiful bed linen and very comfy beds. Scandinavian style. I highly recommend this place to anyone. While you're there try the food at the vatican in the old town as recommended by the hotel, the best salmon i've ever had - in pink pepper sauce. Riva del Garda is a place for everyone, very very beautiful and clean and finished! Ski in the winter, mountain bike, sail, windsurf, stroll in the summer.

Room Tip: The staircase is a hard floor surface so for less disturbance take a room at the top (2nd floor).

Situated 10 minutes easy walk from the old town and lake. Easy to find when coming to the town, easy to park at the Hotel. Storage in garage for skis/ bikes etc. The owners manage the Hotel and are obliging helpful and very pleasant people

Lift to the upper floors. The rooms are superbly designed and equipped. Spotlessly clean and everything works beautifully. It was a really pleasant place to be. Balcony with views of the mountains. We loved staying here for the three days and will definitely return when we next visit Riva del Garda.

Breakfast was fresh and tasty and again we felt Marco would have provided anything we wanted. Although are breakfast need are simple.

Unreservedly recommended for everyone.

Room Tip: We were upgraded without asking to a 2 room apartment and it was very nice to have the sitting room...

I shared a fully furnished serviced two bed apartment, with another couple, locate at the back of the hotel.We stayed there for one week and we were very happy with the whole set up. Two large bedroom both with double or Queen size bed, very comfortable and clean rooms. Two large, clean and modern bathrooms, two balconies with nice view overlooking the mountains nearby. Very neat kitchen with lounge combine, overhaul a very nice and clean apartment.
Now regarding the breakfast !!! it was fantastic, with lots of variety of continental small-goods,eggs, cooked to your liking,lots of different bread, great coffee or tea, different juices, yogurt, etc......Marco and Francesca, could not do enough for they guests !!! Wow I call this hospitality with a capital H.....Location wise it is close to everything, only a short stroll to shops, boutiques, restaurants cafes, supermarket and wharf....Great place and great value for money.

we stayed at this hotel in sept 2012 for 3 nights, the hotel staff were very friendly, we arrived very late on the first night without prior notice and was given our key and advise as to where we might get something to eat before closing time, without delaying us with checked in details which we did the next morning.
room were lovely, very modern design and spotlessly clean, bathroom very spacious with great showers
breakfast was good, good selection of dishes
location is not far from centre of town, walking time approx 10 mins and parking spaces available at hotel
really enjoyed this hotel stay

Really lovely hotel in a great location , lovely short stroll to the center of everything. The decor is gorgeous & the rooms are just spotless with new towels & a clean room daily. Lovely continental breakfast with a great variety of everything along with eggs done however you'd like them.Marco can not do enough to help you & there is a real personal touch there.The bus station is 3 minutes from the hotel which is so a real bonus for travelling. We booked it based on tripadvisor reviews & weren't disappointed. Highly recommend & would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Back rooms have fabulous views & a balcony is always a nice extra

We stayed here in August 2012, and had a wonderful stay, the hotel exceeded our expectations. The location was good, just a few minutes pleasant stroll from the centre, our room was located at the front of the hotel and had no problems with noise, although the rooms at the back may have a had a better view, there are plenty of views to be seen when out and about in the town! Our room was beautifully presented, and very clean, it was simple but had everything we needed (the fridge was a good addition) The bathroom was very modern, clean and spacious, with an excellent shower, fresh towels daily were appreciated. The breakfast was basic but there was more than enough for what I wanted, a good selection of cereals, juices, breads cheese, meat and fresh fruit. The staff were helpful, welcoming and very friendly. I would recommend staying here to anyone visiting Riva, and it was very affordable to those on a budget. I'm hoping to return there as Riva was so wonderful! Thank you Villa Maria!
