We paid about £570 for BB for a week. THis compares with £1265 for the Excelsior up the road. The Excelsior is a nicer hotel but not by that much! The big thing going for the All` Ancora is its position which is right on the waterfront. If you miss a pool there are plenty of places along the front where you cab swim. You can even hire small boats at some of them. Be warned that the transfer buses stop at the bus station because they cannot get to the hotel (It may be different for taxis) so you have to get your cases through the old town. (This only takes about 3-4 mins). The hotel is basic which is fine because everthing you need is right outside the door. The door to the hotel opens out onto an alleway in the old town - you can`t get closer than that! The staff are very informal and friendly and the rooms are kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast is basic but OK - they could do with a toaster. We only had to pay a total fo 7 euros city tax too!) I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend the hotel if you want a base and easy access to all the things Garda has to offer.
Its is easy to get around on buses they go from Riva at the head of the lake to Verona. The cost of a return ticket from Garda to Riva is about £8. I think you can then change buses in Riva and go down the other side of the lake. You should be warned that the cost of ferries can be quite expensive. We paid something like 55euros (return for 2) to go to Sirmoine. You are on the lake for a really nice hour each way - but the cost for a family of four could be substantial if you want to do a few trips.
