Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

With its brightly coloured yet unassuming exterior, the Hotel Antico Borgo which is tucked away on one of the many cobbled streets of Riva del Garda offers premium and contemporary accomodation and service. Communal areas are sleek and glossy, its crisp white walls teeming with abstract and modern art pieces whilst the rooms themselves are bright and airy with fantastic amenities. The ultra modern dining room with its simple furniture and elegant lighting is home to the morning breakfast service which offers both hot and cold options including freshly baked breads, cakes and pastries with delicious coffees, teas and fruit juices. Dinner is a four course affair from a set menu with both regional and international fare on offer such as grilled swordfish with locally produced and infused lemon oils, feathered steak cuts with Trentino wine sauce and of course homemade pastas. There is a stunning rooftop terrace which is open throughout the day and into the evening, offering an ideal spot whether you just want to get away from it all and bask in the Riva sunshine or head up to take an after dinner aperitif and watch the moon sparkle over Lake Garda's azure waters. A short stroll through the cobbled street will bring you to the town square where you'll find plenty of boutique shops, bars and restaurants along with the ferry port which allows you to visit Riva's neighbouring resorts such as the stunning and quaint Limone and Medieval Maclesine
