The hotel has 54 guest rooms and suites, all with a mix of retro and contemporary decor. Every room has a single oversized black and white photograph of a movie icon covering an entire wall above the bed, a modern glass and marble bathroom with a bright red ceramic sink, a glass-top coffee table, a flatscreen TV, and minimalist furnishings. Superior rooms have either city or sea views, with some featuring balconies overlooking the waterfront. Junior suites offer more living area while the Riva Marina Suite has a top floor setting and multiple sea-facing balconies.
Located on Hvar’s promenade overlooking the marina, Riva is within easy reach of a handful of pebble stone beaches as well as lively nightlife spots. St. Stephen’s Square and its attractive cathedral are just around the corner while the majestic Spanish Fort is a 15-minute walk away. Several well-priced restaurants and cafes are just down the road from the hotel.
Food and drink
A generous buffet breakfast is served on the open-air terrace overlooking the waterfront in the warmer months. The hotel’s restaurant BB Club featuring Shrimp House offers a selection of shrimp and pasta dishes, pizzas, salads, and sandwiches. This is an ideal spot to enjoy cocktails by resident mixologists, glasses of Croatian wine, and views of the beautiful waterfront.
