This is an old, but nice hotel situated right on the picturesque harbor. Our standard room was fine, not many extras, but all the standard ones you need, except that wifi did not work in the room and we had to use the nice inside/outside communal landing on the 2nd floor, where the reception was great. The hotel is walkable... More

As a teenager on holiday with parents, this holiday was a trip of a lifetime and this hotel was ideal for me. It's nothing overly fancy but it's a great hotel because it covers everything you need for accommodation without distracting you from the beautiful culture and interesting, bustling town. Inside the room it was incredibly clean and tidy as... More

This hotel was very comfortable, pleasant staff and excellent varied breakfast. The best thing about the hotel is its location as it is right in the heart of the main centre of Desenzano and very close to Lake Yards. We had a room at the back which was fine but there was some noise from the walkway below and neighbours... More

We stayed at the Piroscafo for a week 7-14 September. It is a B and B hotel, but there are many eating places within a few yards of the hotel, we especially enjoyed the Gattolardo lovely food and very friendly staff. The hotel is in the most perfect setting overlooking the old harbour. The lake is just a few yards... More

We loved this hotel. It was at a prime location, in the middle of the harbour, which we could view every day while having our breakfast. We were right around the corner from the ferries and bus stop and just a 15 minute walk from the train station. The room was very spacious with a little balcony. Very clean and... More

What a lovely hotel in a prime position. This is a 3 star hotel with a 5 star location, well worth paying for a harbour view, book direct with hotel who are very helpful. Breakfast was perfectly adequate for a 3 star hotel, lovely fresh pastries, bread, ham, cheese and eggs. Local buses are very easy to catch nearby and... More

What a lovely little hotel! It has the most beautiful location, right on the little inner harbour, so all the town's amenities are a few steps away, yet good double glazing means there is no noise. The hotel is simply yet nicely furnished, and immaculately clean. The bedrooms are certainly small but perfectly adequate, with nice touches such as slippers,... More

Hotel Pirascafo is perfectly situated in the town of Desenzano, overlooking the picturesque little harbour surrounded by pavement cafes. It is handy for everything, right by the town square and just around the corner from the ferries and a short walk from the sunbathing areas of the lake. I would say the hotel is a quiet oasis of calm in... More

What can I say about this hotel that hasn't been said already? Excellent location , very picturesque, spotlessly clean, staff very pleasant and helpful. I am disabled and everything was in easy reach for me,location wise. I would definitely stay here again. The evenings were especially nice, sitting outside with a drink whilst live music played on the square, watching... More
