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.

Having spent a couple of days in Garda in a rather more up market and expensive hotel overlooking the lake, first impressions of the Piroscafo were not particularly good. The entrance is less than inspiring and our mood was not helped by the lack of lift to our third floor room. However, taking price into account, I have to admit... More

On arrival the setting in which the hotel is situated is absolutely lovely just as you imagine. Desanzano is a wonderful place to base yourself with excellent restaurants and cafe's all around we found the ones which were up the small back streets to be a better standard but all we're very good. Whilst we were there we saw that... More

Spent 7 nights at the Hotel Piroscafo from 9th June 2014. We had a really good week thanks largely to the hotel and it's terrific location. We were lucky enough to have a room with a balcony overlooking the picturesque harbour. The room was quite small, but comfortable, with air conditioning and en suite bathroom. The only slight issue we... More

We stayed in the Piroscafo for 3 nights in June 2014. I booked the hotel due to it's excellent reviews on this website and Tripadvisor. The hotel is situated right on the front of the very pretty old harbour right in the middle of Desenzano. Everything is within walking distance. We had a room which did not look out over... More

Right in the heart of Desenzano and only a few blocks from the ferries. The hotel overlooks a small inlet where fishermen moor their rowboats. We could actually see one of the restaurants we ate in from our terrace, Breakfast which was included was the typical continental fare you get throughout most of Italy. The only negative was the size... More

It is located on the main piazza and very close to the boats. It is a beautiful location. The hotel has bar that has happy hour every night. They serve you... More

A fantastic little place on a picturesque boat harbor and piazza. If possible, book in advance and request balcony rooms on the front of the hotel. Enjoy the view with a nice bottle of wine and antipasti as my wife and I did. Very helpful and pleasant staff and an above average breakfast buffet. You won't be disappointed!
