hotel entrance off Via Disciplini
This was the first and only hotel we checked. We were so impressed with the manner of the desk clerk, and her insistance on our seeing the room prior to making a decision, that we accepted unconditionally.
The location is smack dab in the middle of the old center, within a minute or two of everything. The hotel entrance is rather modest as you can see from the photo, and it has no lobby as such.
The rooms are spotless, modest, and rather small. We expected the room to be a tad damp and cold, but to our great pleasure, it was very comfortable, almost cozy. No seating except for a wooden desk chair. Beds were very comfortable, and we slept wonderfully that night. The bathrooms are tiled, no odours of any sort, and our room had a simple shower compartment, with ample liquid soap.
Heating was supplied by a central system, not hot water pipes, so I assume it has A/C as well, but I don't know for sure. Sorry, my oversight.
Rooms include a shower, bidet, safe, lots of thick towels, and extra blankets. The door has a card system as opposed to keys, adding to the security factor.
There is no doubt that Ma Kettle and I will return to this hotel next time we visit Riva.
Unique Qualities: Hotel Vittoria has an attached restaurant called Ristorante Kapuziner am See, which serves typical Bavarian food. Access is off the hotel side, or via Viale Dante. Excellent meal, great service, wonderful atmosphere, reasonable price. We wandered the centre for an alternative, but our hotel restaurant seemed to be the most appealing for us that night.
Breakfast was simple, but included boiled eggs, breads, rolls, meats, cheeses, cereal, yogurts, and German style coffee, not espresso. We had the breakfast room to ourselves that morning, which says a lot about the hotel not skimping on service during off season.
Address: Via Disciplini, 18, 38066 Riva del Garda (Tn)
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Right in the middle of the center. Perfect location.

We did not stay here, but did inquire about rates, and snoop about the lobby.
The location is ideal, situated within the old town walls, facing the harbour. Staff were pleasant and quick to help, and the lobby had a relaxed feel about it.
Prices quoted at the end of Oct 2005 were quite high at 120 euro for a double room. Of course, that does include breakfast.
Unique Qualities: Great location, overlooking the harbour, and within the old town walls. Lots of restaurants within two minutes walking time.
Address: Piazza Catena 9, Riva Del Garda, TN 38066
Comparison: about average
Bed and Blanket...
Ma Kettle and I had travelled the length of Lake Garda, without finding any available accomodation in any town we visited. It was the end of tourist season, and 95% of the hotels had closed for the year.
We were most concerned that this might have been our last and only choice. Obviously, it had been for someone. We noticed this rather firm bed, including a red blanket folded neatly at one end of the park bench, during our early morning trek to the Sita bus station.
Address: Any park, Riva del Garda
Directions: every town has one.
Had a musty odor in the lobby...
Ma and I had already found our hotel, but this one looked rather neat. Upon entering the lobby however, we detected a slight musty smell, and no note of the usual cooking odor normally associated with an attached Ristorante.
The location is ideal, once again, immediately in the center of the old city.
The room clerk was very pleasant, and most obliging in giving us various prices. For example, a double room would run between 84 - 96 euro per night.
Unique Qualities: Location, location, location.
Address: Via Montanara, 2 I - 38066 Riva del Garda (Tn)
Comparison: about average
Directions: The hotel lies within the ancient walls, only 150 meters from Lake Garda, and a few minutes from the Congress Centre.
