“Lovely resort, but not the best hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2005

Lovely resort, but not the best hotel to stay at in Desenzano del Garda. I booked this hotel as it was a last minute booking and not many hotels were available in the area. If you have a choice, I would stay closer to the lake, this hotel was about 10 - 15 mins walk to the lake and 20 mins to the train station. Also right next to an electricity sub-station, so not the best surroundings! The hotelier did not give us great directions, we arrived by train and found the location of the hotel quite hard to find, especially with luggage, no pavements and the extreme heat! The rooms were spacious and clean, with a great power shower. Air conditioning did not work aswell as it could have and had some problems asking for help due to language barrier. The family who ran the hotel were very friendly, but spoke very limited english, this caused some confusion and delay when trying to pay at the end of our stay. The breakfast was continental and adequate. If you can, I would opt for a hotel closer to the lake, as the town is very pretty and quaint, prepare to speak some italian, especially when eating out or shopping. Great location if planning to travel to Milan, Verona and Venice, the train line runs through Desenzano to all these destinations.
