We stayed for 2 nights at the hotel. We had two rooms.
Pros: the location is amazing inside the walled city of sirmione steps from the castle and a 20 mn walk from the ruins. Art deco decor. Free parking at their sister hotel about 12 mn walk. Hotel Eden is 1/2 block inside the walled area and driving is tight. The hotel is on the water and the view is wonderful.
Cons: when we visited in early fall.The a/c was off "for the winter" (it was cool at night) but the rooms were muggy so we had to open the balcony door to get fresh air and were treated to the noisiest, bug-filled nights of our 2 week trip to Italy. Room doors banging, trash collection truck at 4am, people yelling, babies crying. No soundproofing. Music from the lobby or restaurant until late. Upon arrival we found ants on our floor and these were quickly cleaned by the staff. The rooms had dead bugs on the walls. The free breakfast was inedible. Watery cappuccino, stale croissants, tiny worms in the strawberries. The room safes are tiny but even worse, they were placed on a shelf directly above the fridge in a cabinet. The heat of the fridge heated the contents of the safe! Not warm but HOT! Thus I could not keep anything electronic inside. Finally the shower door malfunctioned and my husband was trapped inside. A kind gentleman who spoke only italian quickly came to the room and used a screwdriver to wedge open the door. The next day the hotel sent someone to fix the shower door but no one from the hotel made any effort to apologize! We were on the first floor (lobby is floor zero) and anyone could have hopped from another balcony to ours and come inside. There are also steps adjacent to the balcony that an agile person could climb to gain access if balcony door is open for ventilation. Not recommended.
