We stayed here in June '14. We chose it because we don't like big impersonal hotels. The owners + staff are helpful & kind The breakfasts were fabulous, a stunning array every morning with so much choice plus you can sit outside by the harbour whilst eating. We didn't have a room with a balcony but it didn't matter. At... More

We were here for 2 nights as my husband had business. Perfect quaint location near the water which great views of the courtyard. We had a bedroom balcony which I utilized for people watching and reading while others napped. The owners are a pleasure to work with as we left our luggage while we could have our last lunch before... More

Desenzano is a great place to base your Lake Garda holiday in, and the Piroscafo Hotel is an ideal base. We stayed here from 13 to 24 September 2014. This is a small hotel which does only B&B like many others in the area. We didn't have a balcony bedroom, ours looked into a small central courtyard at first floor... More

We stayed here for a week in late Sept/early Oct and the situation was perfect. Although they only serve breakfast there are at least ten restaurants/cafes within about 500 yards. We are fairly agile but if you have difficulty with stairs choose a level served by the lift. The staff were excellent and one evening a guest had twisted her... More

We spent 8 nights here and loved it! We had a room with a balcony overlooking the harbour, probably the best view in Desenzano. Hotel Piroscafo is a small family-run hotel, spotlessly clean, with very friendly and helpful staff. Don't expect a 'chain' hotel - this is far more atmospheric than that, for a great Italian holiday. Rooms tend to... More

OK, first the positives: location and cleanliness. It's in the middle of everything and, yes, has a view over the old harbour. It's also kept meticulously clean, but frankly, I would expect nothing less. So maybe I was just unlucky, but I've never known a hotel room (no. 5) where there was nothing beside the bed (e.g. bedside table). The... More

We had a lovely two week holiday at the Hotel Piroscafo June/July 2014. The hotel is situated on an ancient harbour and the view from the balcony is beautiful. The staff are so polite, hard working and helpful. The sheets and towels were changed daily. The continental breakfast was more than adequate. The hotel sits on the town square and... More

This hotel is ideally situated. Central, station close by, water taxis across the road and restaurants all around. The staff were most accommodating, friendly and helpful. Beautiful walks along the lake. Lake Garda is stunning and many towns to explore! I recommend Piroscafo highly! Grazie, Marisa.
