Returned to UK 2 days ago from Travelsphere coach tour based at the Hotel Brione. Very basic hotel room, no balcony, no air conditioning or fan in bedroom in 33 degree heat so very difficult to sleep especially as it was extremely noisy with traffic from the very busy main road outside. Asked to be moved to another room away from the traffic but hotel apparently full. One or two other folks from our party managed to get moved but had to pay a supplement. Another lady with asthma couldn't breathe in the bedroom due to the stifling heat, and was eventually given a fan on a stand.
The public rooms weren't air-conditioned either, and the lounge area consisted of only 3 or four settees in the bar (which reminded me of a working man's club in the UK). The only other seats were outside at the front of the hotel, adjacent to the bar, and next to the very busy main road.
Swimming pool OK but with plastic sun-loungers without cushions so not very uncomfortable.
Food average, breakfasts not very exciting with either cheese slices or ham (sometimes salami), various breads and jams, cakes, one fruit per day (either peaches or prunes), and one yogurt. Main course at dinner only choice of of one meat or one fish for main course (omlettes available by request). Service very slow, usually taking 75 to 90 minutes per meal.
As well as being on busy main road, this hotel was at least 20/25 minutes walk from centre of Riva (not 10 minutes as stated in the brochure).
We didn't enjoy the holiday due to the poor hotel, and would recommend staying elsewhere, but definitely not on the main road which was busy from about 1.0 in the morning to about 6.0 a.m.
