“Convenient, comfortable and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Room 24 was a treat with a beach and lake view. After insisting we were promised free parking, we got the ticket for the free lot and access to the hotel for luggage pick-up. Breakfast was first class with a bewildering array of local cheeses. At 80 Eur, a grand bargain.

Room Tip: Room 24 was a treat with a beach and lake view.

Sitting in our comfortable room with view if lake, castle wall and swans, we have had warm, helpful greetings and advice on local restaurants. Breakfast may be the best in Italy, sitting in the lakeside garden. Excellent value for a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Views in both directions are great. We were offered a choice.

Reviewers are right on that positives (location, gracious staff, HUGE breakfast, cleanliness) certainly out way the negatives (2 star room). Staying at this modest hotel in a 5 star town makes for a super deal. Simone is a photographers delight.. Loved the ruins.

Room Tip: A room with a view of the lake

We finised of our 2012 tour of Italy with a two night stay at the Hotel Grifone in Sirmione.
The hotel has a fantastic location right next tgo an ancient castle and I found myself waking up at night and forced to admire the spectacular views from our room. We were able to watch the sun rise over the lake from our bed, an experience only rivalled by the spectacular breakfasts served on the breakfast terrace. (The breakfasts were some of the best we have experienced during all of our travels)
The hotel, although an old building is spotlessly clean, unbelievably spotlessly clean and the staff were absolutely superb.
Our only gripe was that the matresses in our room urgently needed replacing as they were very very soft. Other guests in the hotel that we sopoke to appeared NOT to have the same problem.
Potential guests should also note that payment is strictly CASH ONLY - no credit or cash ards accepted.

We stayed one night in this hotel arriving from Verona. It is in an excellent location. The host gave me, my husband and mother a warm welcome and showed us to our rooms. The rooms are basic but clean and well maintained and the lake view is stunning. She was very helpful for information on Sirmione. We arrived to a beautiful breakfast in the garden overlooking the lake the next morning. The array of food was spectacular an assortment of cheeses, meats, pastries, cakes and lots of fresh fresh and delicious coffee. It was hard to leave the view from the garden. If ever I go back to Sirmione I would definately stay there again.

Another excellent 4 day stay at the hotel grifone.
Location is second to none, service is excellent. The owner cannot do enough for you. She is welcoming friendly always smiling.
Excellent value for money. A fantastic 2* hotel in my opinion should be a 3*. My 10th visit.
See you next year. I just love it
