    Didn't have control over the air conditioning, it went off at 11pm and sometimes woke up sweating. Not a huge deal as we were able to open the windows.

    Hotel is on a beautiful quiet street in Riva close to downtown, amazing and friendly hosts, very clean facilities, delicious buffet style breakfast. There is a great rooftop patio with a beautiful view of Bastione and Santa Barbara that is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of local wine.

    Queen bed had poor quality twin mattresses pushed together which also kept separating so we could not sleep. Must have one queen mattress on a queen bed for us to return to the property.

    Location very good / friendliness of staff / quietness

    Nothing really the only minor thing was because we have a big car it was a little difficult to park but didn't put us off.

    This is a fab family run hotel and very modern loved the decor. The breakfast was very good the owners were very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the walk into Riva and felt the hotel was situated in a good quiet location we would stay there again.

    Very comfortable, stylish, clean, quiet hotel. Good location. Every day we had a lovely walk from the hotel to the lake, it took us about 20 minutes. The center can be reached in 5 minutes, unless you want to drink a delicious Spritz in Bar Roma. Very pleasant owners. Good price. My husband and I will be happy to spend our next vacation in this hotel.

    We loved both Villa Maria and Riva del Garda! The hotel was refreshingly modern which was lovely for a change. Everything worked. And parking was easy. The walk into town was delightful along a leafy avenue. Riva was possibly the loveliest town we saw in Italy. Clean, interesting and beautiful with great food. We caught a public ferry to Limone and Malcesine which were both fascinating. If you plan to do this make sure you buy the day-ticket then you can hop on and off , its about €20.
