“hotel giuliana”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

went this hotel 2nd september 2012,firstly it is a german hotel hence german food, the towels are clean but well worn (ready for drying the dog with) the bedding some sheets have holes in the blankets look like world war two issue,the owner when asked for lets say ice in a drink the reaction you get is like you asked to borrow money.the food is rubbish (breakfast is ok) when l go to italy l dont exspect liver and onions for dinner.with salad .yep every meal time you got salad with gravy.in 6 days pork was served 4 times.the wife who cant have cream or cheese was treated like a leper.although its a 3 star hotel it should be downgraded to 2,would not go any were near this hotel again one last thought if you drink in this hotel the same drinks will vary each night one night 6 euro the next 9 euro,good rip off

Room Tip: book a different hotel

we had an excellent holiday at this hotel.It was our third visit.The hotel is situated in a quiet area of Riva,a short walk from the lake.It is very clean,the food is good.It has a large out door swimming pool.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the swimming pool get the afternoon sun and have a balcony.

Have just returned from a week at this hotel. Would not recommend at all. Owner and staff are rude and unfriendly. Unless you are German you won't receive any welcome. They do not communicate with you on any level. Food is desperate, poor selection of cheap products given. Breakfast is fruit, cheese, ham, watered orange juice, criossants, rolls (don't look for butter its hidden) and cereal. Dinner consists of soup to start or noodles, meat (which is a thin slice) with one potatoe diced and no veg ! Salad selection available to those who like to have in October. Desserts also awful. Beds are hard (partner said rejects from San Quentin prison with horse blankets to cover you). If you want to enjoy your holiday don't go there.

Stayed recently at this hotel and it is definately a hotel of contrasts. first the good points:

1) nice size air conditioned room, very clean with a decent ensuite along with flat screen tv showing several english channels, sky news, bbc news etc.

2) excellent pool area with nice patio furniture

now for the bad points:

1) totally agree with what everyone else has said about the owner and staff. The hotel is run by a very rude lady who only understands english when it suits her, and she is very unhelpful and co-operative. The restauraunt staff only seem to know two words of english which are "tea or coffee" and look so disinterested in their work that it makes you think "why are they working here", they make no effort to speak to you and whip your plate away as soon as you put your knife and fork down. The owner seems to have issues with her neighbours, if you are sitting out on the terrace in the evening having a drink they keep coming out and telling you to keep the noise down and on one occasion a tomato was thrown in our direction from a resident of the building concerned.

2) the food is dreadful at best with the portions being so small that as a result i ate out on three occasions during our six night stay. The starters are always a watered down soup or some form of pasta with the main course mainly consisting of two slices of meat and a few potatoes all of which was very bland and tasteless. No vegetables were offered during our weeks stay and the only accompliment to the lousy food was a salad bar with the same items on it every night. The sweets were a total waste of time and minute in size so i would suggest only staying here on a bed and breakfast basis as riva has so many nice places to eat. Breakfast is also lousy with a few bread rolls and some wafer thin slices of ham and cheese, don't bother with the orange juice as it's watered down so much that you can see straight through the glass.

3) the pillows resemble sand bags and the sheets and quilts are very 70's.

all in all this could be a really nice hotel if it wasn't for the terrible food and lousy staff/owner. If they could put these things right it would be a great place to base yourself to explore the lake garda region.

We staye at this hotel the same time as the lady and granddaughter who were upset.The rooms did vary considerably it was pot luck which you got.Breakfast was a barely adequate continental type the only warm thing was a boiled egg,apoor selection of cold meats/cheese,watered down fruit juice.Evening meal,the meat was the only pallatable part,people did go out to eat elsewhere for whatever reason.There were two people on our coach who spoke fluent Italian and picked up on the bad attitude of the hotel management toward us as a British coachparty.There was no entertainment in the evenings but the sociability of the tour party made up for this.Compared to other residents (none British) we were treated as second class holidaymakers for whatever reason.i.e.we got a cup of tea or coffee(two if lucky)others got a pot full,they got extra fruit with desserts and second helpings of starter course this may sound petty but is it necessary! The only plus side was the pool/sunbathing area,location.A typical you get what you pay for hotel,glad we did our homework before we went there were no suprises within our price range.Love Lake Garda but won,t use this hotel again will find one where the landlady at least smiles at you and thanks you for your custom.

My Granddaughter and i have just returned from this holiday in Lake Garda which is a beautiful place ,but the room we had in this hotel had a small window with a tree straight outside blocking out the light , when we opened the window insects flew in. I had springs coming up in the matress,a noise from the air conditioning went on all the time along with every time a tap was turned on in a nearby room we could here the noise.The room was all brown ,walls ,brown blankets,bathroom ,it was wthout doubt depressing ,my complaints fell on deaf ears as the owner claimed she did not understand English, but when we ask for a glass of tap water with a so called meal the request was refused as you had to buy a bottle from them ! so she understood when money was involved !.As a non meat eater i was given a few chips on a large plate for dinner or tomatoes with two bits cheese on top.I would rate this place as the worse i have ever stopped in and too top it all when i said we would sleep in the lounge rather than stay in the room i was threaten with the police! and told if we could sit around the pool for two hours away from the room.We were both in tears after a few nights in this place.Glad to be home.

We stayed here as part of our first ever coach trip and first trip to Italy, Riva del garda is one of the most stunning places we have ever been. The hotel is in a great position , five minutes walk from the lake ,the rooms are basic but clean, the food however a different matter! bland ,tasteless terrible! great if you don"t want to eat Italian, I did"nt expect to find liver and onions on the menu and neither do I want pasta with boiled broccoli .Although we had payed for an evening meal we ate out most of the week, a vegetarian in our group was told to eat the salad buffet! The owner is a very very rude and angry person and the waiting staff very unfriendly, there are plenty of good value restaurants and a supermarket close by so eat out, Go to Riva but don"t stay here!!
