“Great lake view”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

Charming older hotel on busy main road next to the lake. Ask for upper floor room with views of the lake from the balcony. Large rooms were very comfortable. Street noise, but not bothersome to us. Family run business with lively, amusing host who was very efficient and helpful. Don't miss Villa Carlotta just down the street, and it's exquisite botanical gardens. From here, easy ferry rides to Varenna and Bellagio which are the main attractions. If you have time, it's worth a hike to the castle ruins above Varenna for spectacular lake views.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in July 2013 as one of 11 Intrepid Tour guests. A friend and I were fortunate enough to have scored a spacious room overlooking Lake Como. The decor of our twin room was clean, very tidy and modern. As we were so close to the road we did find it noisy day and night but earplugs took care of that. There is an adjoining dining room where we ate breakfast and had one dinner there. The food was delicious with adequate portions and well priced. Service from all the staff throughout our visit was fantastic. This boutique hotel is located close to other eating places, a small grocery market and the ferry terminal to take you across the lake to other beautiful towns. I would certainly return.

We stayed here during our visit to the Lake Como region and found this small hotel met all of our needs. The family run business simply could not do enough for us and made us feel very welcome from the start. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, free WiFi, and many with amazing lake views as did ours. Overall the property represents great value whilst not forgetting the perfect location for all your touring in and around Lake Como and surrounds. Great value, highly recommended.

Having previously stayed for five days a while back and found this hotel excellent in all respects, my wife and I opted to stay for ten days for our recent vacation. We were not disappointed. The same family owns and runs this hotel in an efficient but very friendly, relaxed and personal way. Our room was large,clean, airy, well apponted and comfortable with lovely views of Lake Como. Everything was done to ensure that our stay was a happy one.
Nothing was too much trouble. To illustrate this, at the end of our visit we discovered that our flight from Milan to the U.K. had been concelled. But thanks to the combined efforts of the family members wew were able to get on another flight at short notice. That is great service.

Room Tip: All rooms have lake views but second floor rooms also have the advantage of a balcony.

The room was spacious and clean. The food was delicious especially the croissant (even the french guest said so). Our MPV had a flat tire on our way out of Como but not that far from the hotel. Stranded... we decided to head back to the hotel and Andrea, the host help us communicate with the car rental people in Italian and read our car rental contract and told us what we entitled for signing up for the insurance coverage. We are grateful for such a nice gesture. Flat tire or not, we already decided to come back here for every single year. Hotel Riviera offered the best of everything... the best location, best food and best service. Thank you Andrea for the good times and the bad too!

Stayed there a few years ago. The host had a great humor and was very amiable. The room overlooked the lake, was comfortable and the food and drinks in the restaurant were very good.
It was convenient to walk the area or ferry the car across the lake, Good hiking. It is a hotel where I would go for a long while and feel it is worth it.

Being the end of the season we found ourselves being the only guests at this hotel. Our twin room was a good size with a renovated bathroom and effective heating. Use of the free wifi in the foyer was convenient. The staff were friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to see and do in the local area. Fortunately the hotel's restaurant was still trading so we could dine here easily without having to travel into Menaggio each night. Handy location to walk to the local bus stop if you want to catch the bus to the ferry which travels from Menaggio to Bellagio late in the season.
