Bed and Blanket: Our last choice for accomodation...

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.

Hotel Vittoria: Our 'Find' in Riva

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.

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.

Albergo - Ristorante - Bar

We stayed in the `Albergo - Ristorante - Bar` in `Drena` (Trento) : a little village in the hills, only 30 minutes from Riva del Garda.
The owner of this little hotel is a bosomfriend of my mother-in-low.
She is a Belgian who married an Italian.
Their names ? Therese and Roberto : two friendly people where we are always welcome!
By this way I can thanks them for their hospitality and their delicious food !
