Nestled in the heart of Riva's vibrant harbour, Hotel Sole offers stylish and comfortable accommodation in an enviable position. Situated on the town square and with Riva's famous clock tower as a backdrop, this spectacular building is steeped in history that comes to life in its vibrant walls. Harking back to days gone by, there is a piano bar with touches of gold and marble, a reading room with floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the square and a roof top sun terrace which offers unrivalled views of Lake Garda's cyan depths and the majestic mountains beyond. Rooms here are bright, airy and incredibly spacious with simple yet tasteful decor. The stunning Sole restaurant on site is the location of breakfast and dinner service and opens out onto the town square terrace so you can sit and embrace 'La Dolce Vita' with an Aperol Spritz in hand. 

A recently added spa adds an extra touch of glamour to this already spectacular building. Featuring a whirlpool, sauna, steam room and solarium, this is the perfect spot for tranquility, relaxation and resting any weary feet after a day exploring Riva's stunning cobbled streets or the neighbouring resorts via the ferry port just 50 metres away.

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