4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the Hotel Nazionale for one night as part of a tour of Northern Italy. The hotel is well located for both the train station and the Milano-Venezia highway. We got the train, and it is a short walk down the hill from the station. The short walk back up the hill the next day was harder work!... More

The Nazionale is an elegant hotel in the center of Desenzano. The staff is extremely friendly, ready to advise when asked. The property is well groomed, a large underground free parking garage makes the life easy. The breakfast is rich, the service in the dining room is very prompt, and I think the hotel should seriously consider offering evening meals,... More

We were fortunate to receive a complimentary upgrade to a suite and the room was very modern, very spacious and comfortable. The view was of the lake in the distance and facing the main road but with the balcony doors closed you never hear a thing. The breakfast buffet is very good, well stocked and in a lovely restaurant area.... More

We would agree with all the positive reviews read before we arrived. Room 212 with balcony overlooked the hotel pool, and was as quiet as can be expected in an Italian resort. 15 minute walk uphill to the railway station - 5 minute downhill to the ferry. 5 minutes to Grand Shanghai for the only Chinese food in town, and...

It's taken a while but I've finally got round to adding my review. To keep it short l would agree with all the good points in previous reviews so I won't repeat them however most of the negatives mentioned I find unjust. People seem to forget they were in foreign country so you can't expect all the staff to speak... More

I chose this hotel based on reviews which were all really good. Perhaps we were unfortunate with the room number. Room 119 - the balcony overlooked the Audi car dealership, so therefore of no use as everyone in the showroom could see you. The room itself was basic, the bathroom was modern and large considering the size of room. Breakfast... More

This is a nice modern hotel, good rooms & bathrooms. However I felt what was lacking was good customer service, not from just one or two staff but all we came across. Such a shame as the hotel itself is lovely.

Rooms are pleasant and clean. Bathroom modern with good water pressure.(important to me. Desk staff not overly friendly. Not much English speaking. Convenient to town center. Fine for this type of vacation where not much time is spent at either your room or hotel. Would have liked a coffee pot in room.

The hotel, room and pool were all very pleasant. Apart from Giovanni, the reception staff were unsmiling and barely looked up. The chambermaids were very helpful but the chef/ older waiter was extremely rude. Desenzano itself did not compare favourably with Malcesine.
