We've just returned from a week at this hotel, booked through Travelsphere. We weren't sure what to expect of a 3 star hotel in Italy but Hotel Benacus really was lovely, immaculately clean throughout and with the most wonderful views of Riva and Lake Garda. We paid a little extra for a lake view and it really was a joy... More

Stayed with a friend as part of a Travelsphere group. It was dark when we arrived and we were greeted warmly by the English speaking manager, Marco. What a brilliant surprise when we stepped out onto the balcony the following morning( we had a room in the roof). The view of the lake and mountains was unbelievably beautiful. Breakfast is... More

Staff really good. Food tasty, but lacking in veg, but good salad chose. Paid for balconey and view, which was lovely. Down point bathroom was a cupboard in our room. Town was down the hill, not so bad after you had done the walk up and down a couple of times. Not a good choice if not fit. Shuttle bus... More

Recently returned from a Travelsphere holiday to Hotel Benacus. The hotel has incredible views over Riva, the food and staff were also both excellent. Because of the excellent weather we were able to dine on the veranda everynight and this made the evening meal particularly special. Our room was clean with air conditioning and when we returned from our day... More

Pros: Excellent pool, great sun loungers, incredible view, friendly staff. Cons: Noisy rooms - you can hear every door slam. Location is only useful if you are OK with being taxi/car/cycle distance from lake and town. You can certainly walk down the hill to the lake but it would be a hike up the hill. Overall really enjoyed the hotel... More

We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our stay at Hotel Benacus with Travelsphere in the first week of July. To celebrate our Ruby Wedding we had a table for 2 and an awesome apartment with views to Mt Brione which we really enjoyed.
