Took a while for us to find the hotel- it's fairly tucked away. Only 10mins walk from the lake, but nearer half an hour from the centre of Riva itself- actually in an area called Barone. So bit of a trek from the ferry with our bags getting there, but the owner handily drove us to the bus station on check out, which was appreciated.
Having reserved a '25m2 studio room' through expedia, on arrival we were given a regular double- when I questioned this, was told the person in that room was 'sick' so was unable to leave. Hmmm. Also told the rates were all the same, so no discount for having a smaller room than booked.
After the dubious start though, the room was newly refurbished, comfortable & clean with a nice bathroom. The quiet location was appreciated for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was good. Overall, good value for money if you don't mind being a bit of a way out of town.
