We booked the Flowers apartments based on the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and the brilliant website for the Flowers which give lots of detail and photos on each apartment. Lilliana was helpful prior to arrival and throughout booking.
The apartments are right in the centre of Desenzano, a 3 minute walk to the boat station, a 15 minute walk (uphill!) to the train station and directly above or 30 seconds walk to excellent bars, restaurants and ice cream shops. Our apartment, Violetta, on the 3rd floor was immacuately clean, stylish and beautifully presented with top of the range kitchen and bathroom. For self-catering the apartment is well equipped with everything you might need and a supermarket selling delicious fresh pasta and bread is literally across the street. The photos on the website do not do the building or the apartement justice! There was some street noise, particularly as we were in town when there were two street parties (election related) but on a normal night it was peaceful and restful, and you cannot beat the location.
The boats run regularly and you can be in Siminone within 20 minutes and, on the hydrofoil, in Malchesne within 1.5 hours. Both are highly recommended as excellent daily trips.
Top tips for eating - Columbo (one minute away) serves excellent, high quality food although is fairly pricey. Restuarante Garda Pizzeria (which is to the left from the main road) was excellent and full of locals when we arrived, away from the main centre gets you more for your money as it was reasonable as well as very tasty.
