This is how a hotel should be run. Not ultra posh, or pretentious in any way, but just good comfortable accommodation where the staff work hard to make it special, Spotlessly clean in all areas and bright, with friendly, attentive & efficient staff. There's great breakfast room where they'll offer to cook you bacon and eggs, which I sampled and it was good!. Breakfast is included in the room rate which is always a plus point for me. It's a reasonably priced newish hotel where everything works, the shower in our room was fabulous. The only thing they don't have here is a restaurant but there are so many to choose from in Salo that it really doesn't matter and is in no way a critisism, just an obvservation.
A very short walk along the adjacent narrow passageway brings you out on the edge of Lake Garda, with it's many fine shops, restaurants and bars. The promenade is long and a great place to take a slow stroll on a sunny evening, stopping along the way for a glass of wine or a beer of course, to sit and enjoy that incredible view with - bliss!
They made a mistake with our room which we'd booked through Booking.Com. It only came to light when we were leaving and the bill was more than we were expecting. When we questioned it and they investigated, it was realised that we'd been given a higher grade room in error. No problems whatsoever, they simply said, "Our mistake" and just charged the rate for the room we should have had. When - and we will - come back here we'll just book an upgraded room from the start, it was superb.
They have secure parking in a garage opposite the front door. Here, your car is parked in a "Cage" two storeys below ground where access is only granted to those who have the correct electronic key. The cage door works by a remote control and once down is pretty much impenetrable. Very secure with great peace of mind for our soft top car, all for just 8 euro per night. Having said that the area feels safe to walk around in even at night.
Fantastic hotel that I'd recommend very highly to anyone thinking of visiting beautiful Salo. Full marks from here and well deserved ..... keep up the good work, as this is now the hotel that all future hotels we stay at will be measured by.
Ask for a room at the front with a small balcony, it's a great place to people watch from.
