The holiday we took was out of season, so RIVA was quiet and this was an ideal time to visit. Hotel Centrale is, as the name suggests in the main square and so was ideally placed for access to the ferries and shopping and restaurants. Accommodation was very comfortable, the bedding was changed every day. The meals were excellent with a menu that changed every day and the staff were friendly and helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Centrale in Riva del Garda.
