“Lovely Hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2014

We have just stayed for a week at the Antico Borgo, the Hotel is lovely, well located, the rooms are lovely, extremly clean and the staff were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was good with plenty to choose from, Dinner however was a little disappointing the first course is a help yourself buffet which was lovely, we tended to fill up on this as the second and third courses which are served to you are very small and on some evenings were not to our liking, puddings okay though, we also felt that we could not linger and finish our wine at the table after we had eaten as they were clearing tables all around us and resetting them for breakfast. We had a lovely holiday and would definetly stay at this hotel again but only on B&B basis.

Room Tip: We had a balcony which was lovely

I booked this for four couples and we stayed for 5 nights at the Antico Borgo. This is a lovely hotel in a great location. The staff were great and very helpful, especially the head waiter in the dining room. All the food was very nice and if there was something that one person did not like to eat, there was no hesitation of changing it. The breakfast was excellent as well and there was plenty on offer. We had a lovely rooftop balcony and even though we are located in the town we did not hear any noise at all. All in all a great holiday and an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor with a lovely balcony and as stated it was lovely and peaceful.

My boyfriend and I recently enjoyed a 3 night stay at the Antico Borgo (2nd-5th April). From beginning to end our stay here was fantastic! Every employee we came into contact with were exceptionally helpful, friendly and very genuine. Our room (gorgeous!!) was located close to the solarium (outdoor sun terrace), which was a lovely place to spend the evening before venturing into the town. As for the food, the ordering procedure was very practical; the 3 course evening meal was selected at breakfast and brought directly to your personal table at whatever time you arrive that evening. The food quality was great, we experience some real Italian treats such as Canneloni Spinaci Ricotta, Lasagne, selection of cured meats (I would highly recommend opting for)....also some great deserts, the favourite being the Berry Pane-cotta! Unfortunately we didn't catch the names of the wonderful staff, but I believe the female to be the manager who gave us great advice & information about tourist aspects of our stay. A lovely gentleman, middle aged, constantly working, made our stay that extra but special with his kind & passionate service.

The town itself is simply 'stunning'. Head north and visit the local waterfall (15min walk). If the weather is nice & the lake calm, definitely hire a pedallo...a couple of blissful hours would go unmissed...maybe even take a bottle of champaign on with you!!

The boat trip is recommended to see the whole lake & surrounding towns. A lot of bell towers...worth a climb for €2 to see the panoramas!

Sirmione is also worth a visit, takes a while on the boat but it is a very picturesque town with some interesting history such as the ruins of an ancient roman villa! Aquaria, the thermal spa in Sirmione is lovely & something to experience.

Overall, we loved our stay and it made our first holiday together extra special :)

Good clean rooms, friendly service, they arranged all our car parking passes etc, balcony essential, wonderful views of the old town, shame about no pool/spa but in a central location. PLanning on returning again next year.

Didnt sample the food as was bed and breakfast only, breakfast was fine also.

Overall- A great platform to launch your holiday from.

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Antico Borgo and did not want to come home. It was everything and more we had hoped for. We requested a quiet room at the back of the hotel with a balcony and got exactly that. The balcony was secluded from which we had a lovely rooftop and mountain view. As it was September the sun had disappeared over the mountain by the time we returned from our adventures but we made the most of the early morning sunshine which we were very lucky to have for most of the week. I have missed the nearby clock chiming seven to signal time for us to rise. Which incidentally does not strike through the night. Back to the hotel. The courtesy of all the staff are second to none and we would particularly like to thank the Receptionist, Katia, and the Head Waiter for making our stay so memorable. We only stayed for bed and breakfast but will have half board on our return, which will be the same time next year and we propose to book soon in order to secure the same room, which was on the fourth floor. The room number will remain our secret! The room was spotless, with a lovely shower room and the towels were changed very frequently. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is central but very close to the lakeside. The bus service to surrounding areas is good and very reasonable and the lake trips to Limone and Malcesne are not to be missed. All in all we cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room at the back of the hotel.

We have just returned from our week long stay and we were not disapointed. The hotel is very well situated in the old town. It was very easy to get about being so central and all the shops restaurants and cafes were within easy reach. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the restaurant Manager and his staff very pleasant. We requested a lower level room and were given room 101 which was very well situated for the lift although we could not hear it. The room itself was large modern bright and airy and the window overlooking said shops was double glazed so we had a fab nights sleep with no noise from outside at any time of day or night. The air con worked well and was not noisy. Bathroom very good standard with walkin shower. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean.
Regarding the food, breakfast was quite adequate with a good selection. Evening meal was satisfactory and there was a very good choice, but sometimes it could be described as somewhat bland. However, this was a minor issue.
We would definitely go back to this hotel as we liked the ambience, the location and the staff.

We stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks ago for 5 nights on the KGB deal by Holidaysbooked.com.

With regards to the booking through holidaysbooked, it was pretty easy and quick to book with them. I had read previous reviews stating how they were not informed of the inclusive/exclusive drinks etc however we experienced no problems at all. The transfer was worth the extra £50 as we were met at the airport within 10 minutes of arrival and the minibus was very clean. Although, for those who have never experienced the thrills of Italian driving, you may be shocked especially when driving through the tunnels through the mountains at high speeds.

With regards to the hotel, overall I was satisfied by my stay. I usually stay in 2-3 stars back in England so this 4-star was quite different. The furnishings within the room and restaurant are very modern and clean. Our room was relatively small and did not include a "view" but we spent most of our time outside of the room so didn't think this was a problem.
The reception desk staff were very helpful, especially when having problems with our electric within our room. They fixed it within 5 minutes of us informing them!
The food was a little weird compared to English cuisine and the courses were quite small, however you do get 4 courses and I was very full after every evening meal. I was disappointed at the lack of Italian food available within the hotel though. I was looking forward to lots of pasta, pizza etc but we could only saw pasta on the menu once. However the meals were very quick and the restaurant manager was very friendly and welcoming.

Overall, we had a great holiday and enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

One thing that I will suggest to improve the hotel would be the electrics within the room. I was quite confused by the electrics/air conditioning and it took a while to work out how to use it. So perhaps a guide provided within the room would be helpful to other guests.

Also, a tip for those thinking of hiring bikes in Riva del Garda: We hired two bikes for a full day for 15 euros each. This was the cheapest we found in Riva (other places were more like 20-25 euros each). The shop was called Happy Bikes and is situated on the main road between Riva and Torbole. There are a few other bike shops along this road, however this one was the cheapest and the nearest to Torbole. It took about 15-20 minutes to walk to it from Riva centre, hence why it is probably the cheapest. Happy Bikes were very helpful and guided us on where to go. In the end, we biked along the river, up through Arco, Dro and eventually through beautiful vineyards and orchards near Sarche (25k from Riva).
