The hotel is situated just outside the castle entrance to the old town. The hotel is on the narrow penisular with lake views either side. Our room over looked the swimming pool which was heated by sulphar springs for health giving properties, and hence had an eggy aroma. The pool is surrounded by a grassed area with plenty of sun...

The 3-star Fonte Boiola, with one exception (its 5-star neighbor and sibling, the Grand Hotel Terme), is the closest hotel to the old town not actually in the old town (driving into and out of the old town, with the hordes of pedestrians on the narrow streets, does not appear to be a pleasant experience). The hotel offers a good-sized... More

This hotel is more like a four star. We would definitely return. Rooms were clean and large. Fabulous air-conditioning unit in the room which made the holiday very comfortable. The staff here are so helpful. They booked taxis and tours for us and even unlocked our safe when my husband locked our passports and money in by accident. Buffet breakfast... More

The hotel is very well located just the right side of the castle and old town just where you need to be in Sirmione . The hotel has a thermal swimming pool which was quite warm and had an odour of sulphur with a nice grassed area with loungers overlooking the lake .The access to the lake was fenced off... More

We stayed here because the hotel had a pool (was a spa hotel), but I felt like i was in the film Cocoon, full of old people shuffling round in dressing gowns and slippers. Plus the website nor information sent to us told us that our 2 year old couldn't go in the pool as it was too hot -... More

The positives; friendly staff, great location, parking available, use of other sister hotels facitilities The negatives; an older crowd, smelly pool (thermal pool using sulphar) - can smell in the corridors, looks like the decor hasnt been updated in at least 20 years. I likened it to an Italian remake of the movie Coccoon. You're paying for the location on... More

Nice 3-star hotel in Sirmione. Is located close the bridge (after passing the Grand Hotel Terme) that enters the historic centre (the Scagliero Castle). Has their own parking lot, very convenient, in my opinion, to leave the car even for days and stroll around by feet. The rooms are in good shape, good standards, with tea make facilities, clean and... More
