06 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: A brilliant breakfast for very good value! Very good location too, and agreeable staff. The restaurant linked to the hotel was also very good, and the 10% discount for guests was a nice gesture, although the cover charge per person almost made it worthless. The rooms were pleasant, despite our being slightly disappointed at having bunk beds. Nonetheless, the views from the balcony were stunning and caught the afternoon sun very nicely.

Liked: My expierence was excellent. Marcello greeted us upon arrival. Gave us a tour. He then showed us where the local bus would be for a connection the next day. The breakfast buffet was the best we had in over eleven places on our trip. Mario, was also an excellent communicator and help. Riva is a first class operation.

Kathryn Dodd

24 June 2009 Kathryn would recommend this property

Liked: Room was very clean. Near to the lake, but no view and very small rooms. Good for a stopover but not for a holiday! Service was interesting, and breakfast looked good but we went across to the gran mercato across the bus shelter and got lots of exceptionally cheap and good bread etc =) The hotel parking is very convenient for only 5 euro / day.Como was nice to wander around, but note its a 4 hour round trip by boat to get to Bellagio! If you have a car drive up towards Mennaggio on the other side of the lake for a while - its beautiful and convenient to check out the villas and towns all around the lake.

Liked: It was perfect. The private room was really nice (although it was a bunk bed) and the bathroom was very clean. The hostel staff was so helpful and funny too. I can't even describe how good the breakfast was compared to other hostels... it was a FULL buffet. Also, you must eat there for dinner. Best food in Como!
