About the location
Riva del Garda is the northernmost town on Lake Garda and oozes Italian charm, with an historic old town full of winding passageways and a glamorous lakefront promenade.
The atmospheric central square – Piazza III Novembre – is the beating heart of the town, bustling with local boutiques and crowned by the 13th-century Torre Apponale, which offers breathtaking views of the lake from its 100-foot-high terrace. There’s plenty more to see and do, including visiting the fortified town museum and taking a stroll along the picturesque promenade. The town has a great laid-back vibe, and you’ll find many locals and visitors indulging in some downtime by enjoying gelato at the lake’s edge, or perusing some of the quaint shops dotted around the streets.
Thanks to the prime position at Lake Garda’s northern end, visitors can access several pretty towns nearby, including Torbole and Malcesine. The breezy waterside location also means that Riva del Garda is ideal for watersports, with windsurfing being a popular pastime here.
The hotel is 1 hour 5 minutes from Verona.Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

My husband and I recently stayed here at Kristal Palace for our honeymoon. We were absolutely blown away by beautiful the hotel was. Everything was so elegantly presented and clean. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed. Housekeeping came everyday and also turned down the bed at night which was a lovely touch. Every member of staff we met was incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable (Massimo, Uri, Jon Marco, Michelangelo thank you!). We were looked after very well! The food was amazing, breakfast on the roof was the perfect start to each day and every night it was something different and so beautifully presented! The hotel is in a great location, we could easily get to the lake, to the ferry taxi point and into Riva Old Town. There are many nice gelato places nearby too. We could not fault any part of this holiday and would definitely book to stay here again. Thank you to all hotel staff, this trip was one in a million!

Amazing hotel. Fine dining, excellent friendly professional staff. Nothing too much trouble at any time. Roof top pool with bar, where breakfast is served and evening entertainment - fabulous views of lake and mountains! Pool bar available from 12 noon. Happy hour 5.20 - 6.30 reduced drinks! Lovely rooms. Good location for walk to lake or old town. Free bag and flip flops to use from room to lake are provided but if not in room, you need to ask reception for these. Gown and slippers are in rooms too. Best hotel we have ever stayed in - can't fault anything. If going to Riva Dell Garda this is the only place to stay. Possibly bit more expensive but you will know it was worth it!

This hotel was recommended to us by people that have stayed here and everything they said about it was true. We have always wanted to go to Lake Garda and it is the most beautiful place we have ever been to, whatever time day or night we walked to the lake it took our breath away.Everyone working at the hotel were kind and gracious and couldn???t do enough for you. The food was varied and it was excellent, we didn???t have one meal we didn???t like. The room had everything we needed and we were lucky enough to have two balconies so we had the sun on one of them all day.A perfect holiday and we would like to return to the hotel again
