Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Just 100 meters from the ferry port and overlooking Riva's main square and affluent harbour, the Hotel Centrale boasts one of the most enviable locations in the entire resort. The hustle and bustle of the shopping lanes and quaint cafes sits just a stones' throw from the hotel and the bus station and ferry terminal on your doorstep make it easy to get out and about.
The ethos of the hotel is one of simplistic elegance which is reflected in the pale pastel colours and works of local artists adorning the walls. Rooms are comfortable and simple, yet provide everything you need for a stay in the centre of resort. Evening meals for our guests on half board offer a chance to dine from the a la carte menu which sports regional favourites such as spaghetti vongole and scallops with fresh chili and lemon oil. All of these and more can be enjoyed on the al fresco terrace with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and crystaline waters, perfect for watching the sunset with an Aperol Spritz!

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 45 mins by coach.

Hotel Centrale is home to a wonderful restaurant with a large dining room which spills out onto a sun soaked terrace overlooking the lake. Evening meals consist of three courses which can selected from the a la carte menu where you can find traditional dishes such as slow cooked cured meats, homemade pastas and of course fish caught fresh from the waters of Lake Garda. 

Pools and Beaches

Two of the most renowned are Pini Beach which is a known haven for windsurfers amongst the swaying pine trees on the luscious grass and Miralago Beach which is much quieter with its pebbled slope into Garda's crystalline waters as well as a floating platform ideal for relaxing in the sunshine.
