We are staying here for four nights and are very impressed. Only booked last week and staying in Room 103 , a little dated but immaculately clean, small room and bathroom but efficient shower and no shortage of hot water, decent sized towels too, unusual for small hotels. Very good sized terrace overlooking road so a little noisy from traffic... More

This small family hotel is ideal for solo travellers offering single rooms with no supplement. Arriving on April 5th with the Travel Department group for one week, I used it as a base to to visit Lake Garda popular sites, walking to Torbole and Arco, then group trips to Venice and Verona and the Italian Alps. The bedroom is small... More

Food was excellent throughout the week and Davide & restaurant staff were great. Buffet breakfast had plenty of choice and was excellent. Reception staff... More

We stayed here during a Travel Department holiday. I checked Tripadvisor before we went and found they scored well on (a) cleanliness (b) food and (c) pleasant staff. All this turned out to be true! it left me wondering if Hotel Gardesana could be given another star! They especially excelled in the attitude of all the staff we met. Well... More

My wife and I were transferred to the Gardesana when our other choice was full. A very friendly reception awaited. Although the room was small it was spotlessly clean. Everyday was the same. The food was excellent and being able to order at breakfast meant we were served quickly at dinner. All the staff were very helpful and couldn't do... More

Just returned from a 1 week stay organized by Travel Department. Our weather could have been better but this did not stop us from having a lovely time. Everyone was really friendly and the hotel was really clean and food delicious. We met some lovely people on our trips (industrial knickers!) and our guide Antoinetta (very informative) made sure everything... More

A nice compact little hotel. Bedroom good with nice facilities and veranda. Nice diningroom with good breakfast and great evening meal! Nice swimming pool out back. The staff were very helpful and friendly during our 1 week stay. The only downside was - no lift!
