“Wonderful !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We stayed for three nights in February and had a wonderful time.
Gigliola gave us a lot of useful advises, which made our trip even better.
I was sceptical about the town and B&B, but I must admit that really enjoyed the trip. Location is very good almost everything is in 5 minutes walking, room was perfect with nice balcony and fastastic view to the lake and mountains.

Room Tip: I would recommend the rooms with balcony with a view to lake and mountains. Chilling out in a late e...

We stayed there 5 nights in October and it was absolutely wonderful!
The welcome from the owners, the knowledge of the area, they are real ambassadors of Desenzano.
Rooms are so clean, breakfast fantastic, had a great time there every morning. We followed all their recommendations, and of course got their homemade jams and salami to take home!
Looking forward to going back to The Tower of the Old King.
Thanks a lot Gigliola and Alex!
We need some more dances of the Sun here!!

Gail & Dave H. from Ontario, Canada. This was our first trip to Lake Garda, Italy and because of our wonderful experience at this B & B we definitely will return many more times. We laughed and learned every day while there since our hosts were so much fun and provided us with a wealth of information regarding the history of this region. It is truly amazing how well we communicated with our very poor grasp of the Italian language, and their much better mastery of English. Our room had a large balcony which provided us with great view of Lake Garda as well as the historic town and with the 2 patio doors made it very bright and cheery. The rooms were very clean and we certainly appreciated the handy little necessities left in our bathroom each day. We looked forward to our breakfast each day since it was delicious, offered a wide variety of homemade specialties and lots of lively conversation. We feel this town of Desenzano is the best base for touring this region since it is only a 10 minute walk to the train and 5 minute walk to catch the numerous boat tours offered for Lake Garda. This area is clean, upscale and has no graffiti so made us feel safe and welcome. There are numerous great restaurants and shops within easy walking distance of the B & B. The town has a few slight "hills" to climb but nothing like other Italian towns. We would highly recommend his fabulous B & B for anyone wanting to enhance their trip. If a lake view is important to you then be sure to ask the hosts for that, otherwise there are lovely castle and garden view rooms too.

Room Tip: Our lake view room was spacious and bright and also very quiet. There is a wonderful interesting s...

My husband and I were on our way back to Milan after a trip to Slovenia to visit family, and I wanted to visit a place off the normal American tourist map. I decided on Desenzano del Garda. I looked on trip advisor to see where we should stay, and found this b & b. I chose it because it looked very Italian. I like to stay in a place that reflects the culture of the country that I am in, and this place was perfect for us. Our room was on the second floor and had two doors and a balcony and we could see the lake. It felt like we were visiting in someone's home, like we had in Slovenia. Very relaxing for us, with the doors open and the fan on. There was no air conditioning, but that was not a problem for us. The breakfast in the garden was wonderful, and it was fun talking with the owners-they were very nice and friendly even though we didn't speak their language. They recommended a very good restaurant for dinner. I would definitely recommend the Tower Of The Old King for someone who wants to experience Italy.
