Hotel is in the form of a lovely villa with a very welcoming entrance through a pleasant garden. Situated within walking distance to the centre of Desenzano. Room, even if a bit smallish, had a good-sized relaxing terrace with a nice side view of the lake. Hotel neat and clean with a very convenient underground parking. Staff helpful and pleasant....

The hotel is well located at walking distance from the port and the city center with restaurants. The hotel was perfectly clean and organized. The staff was especially helpful. We have changed our plan after the reception clerk ( Walter, I think) gave us his advise that happened to be better than any guide would have given. Breakfast was just...

Comfortable room, clean, good variety of meats, cheeses and fresh fruits at breakfast. A quiet and beautiful garden at the back with a pool. A quick stroll to the town's centre and the ferry, local busses and the out-of-town busses. This description could apply to many hotels but for the Piccola Vela, it's the staff who raise the bar. Genuinely...

Stayed in the hotel for a week, from start to finish a fantastic hotel with extremely friendly staff. The room was spotless, airy and spacious with fully working A/C. The breakfast in the morning offered a wide variety that would keep you going all day. The town centre is only a five minute walk so its quiet for residence yet...

Beautiful and quiet hotel just a couple of minutes away from the heart of the city. The guys at the reception were very helpful with any questions we had and provided us with a lot of info. The rooms were clean and had a great size.
