the hotel overlooks a small harbour with about 40 fishing boats moored around it.it has citrus trees with fruit and 4 restaurants around it.the tourist information office is also there.a 5 minute walk will take you to the ferry and bus stops.the train station is about a 25 minute walk uphill so it might pay to get a taxi there,although...

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.

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
