Hubby and I are just back from a six day stay in Italy - we started in Venice for two nights, then Verona for one night and finally two nights at the Eden Hotel in Sirmione - and what a perfect way to end a busy short break! We booked a balcony room and were situated in room 207 which overlooked the Lake and provided us with stunning views from the moment we woke up. The hotel is situated in a busy and popular part of Sirmione but is an oasis away from the crowds. The gardens are beautifully laid out and peaceful and the decking area perfect for a lazy sunny afternoon people watching as the boats arrive throughout the day and early evening but surprisingly are not intrusive or annoying in any way. The hotel is 70s art deco designed and our room was light and airy and the bathroom well laid out. The breakfast room is at the back of the hotel and overlooks the lake and is again beautifully decorated and light and sunny. Breakfast is a selection of pastries, bread and toast, fresh fruit and yogurts, boiled and scrambled eggs and bacon and small smoked sausages. There is a selection of juices, jams and honey and fresh coffee and a selection of teas and fruit teas. The staff are extremely helpful and nothing is too much bother for them. We drove to the hotel and negotiating the streets in Sirmione to the hotel can be hair raising to say the least but we were lucky and had a Fiat 500 - we followed an Audi A6 into the town and it was an extremely tight squeeze! We were able to park in one of the three parking spaces outside the hotel but they also have a garage in which you can park at a cost of 10 Euros per night. Sirmione is beautiful and I can recommend a private boat trip around the island which cost 50 Euros for a 30 minute trip but is well worth it as you see the island from another view and get to see the thermal waters which are fed to three of the hotels in Sirmione and also to go under the bridges of the castle. The shower was hot immediately and I must admit the complimentary soaps etc were some of the nicest smelling I have come across and free slippers is not to be sniffed at! The only criticism I could make is the air conditioning which was a bit weak and when we were there (14th to 16th April 2013) the temperature was around 27 degrees, which made sitting in the room without the balcony door being open uncomfortable - could see this being a problem in the height of summer. Gorgeous shops, great choice of restaurants offering a variety of meals at prices to suit all pockets, great ice cream, lovely walks and "beach areas" - Sirmione is a real gem.

This is a modern hotel, right on the edge of Lake Garda. It's inside the town walls, so make sure you've let the hotel know you're driving if you're bringing a car with you as they'll tell the police in advance. The hotel has a small car park, although finding it is a bit of a challenge (it's through a very busy square, by the ferry terminal and you'll need to navigate lots of pedestrians and restaurant tables/chairs).

The staff are welcoming and very friendly, and the rooms are clean, modern and functional - just didn't have a great deal of space for our bags. Our room had a small balcony overlooking the lake which we spent a few hours watching the world go by with a glass or two of the local vino. Very civilised.

With it being our honeymoon, the manager did buy us both a beer to celebrate, which we enjoyed drinking on the hotel's sun terrace by the lake.

The hotel breakfast was good, with lots of fresh fruit. Service was polite and attentive.

Well other than lake Garda and sirmione being one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited ( and I've been to over 50 countries in the world ) the Eden hotel made the trip even more special. We had paid for a balcony room and it was so worth it for the stunning lake view. A really small and friendly hotel but I loved how modern it was compared to others we saw in lake Garda. Breakfast was the usual European continental but it was all very nice and we loved sitting in the breakfast room with a view of the lake. We found the receptionist very friendly and we want to get married in lake Garda and would love to have the reception on the front of hotel edens veranda.

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.

On the road to Venice, Sirmione is a surprising and charming medieval village that has be transformed as a trendy summer and year around destination on the shore of Lac de Garde
Eden Hotel offers a superb location within the core of the city center- beautifull boutique hotel design and courteous staff.
Ask the concierge to park your car, it will be less stressfull for you !

Room Tip: try to select one on the lakeside. Superb sunset

The Hotel Eden is a fine place to stay in old town Sirmione. It is located right next to the ferry landing. Our room had a lake view. Nearby parking was available for a price. Free parking was available outside the entrance to the old town. Our accommodations were first class, breakfast was sumptuous, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Booked this on our road trip. It was the cheapest hotel to come up on our google search so wasnt expecting too much. However, it was fantastic. A prime location right on the lake and in a busy piazza so plenty to see. The hotel staff were excellent and offered secure valet parking at 10 euros per day extra. The room was modern, clean and relaxing with daily maid service. The bedding was pulled down at night with complimentary chocolates left on the bedside cabinet for when we returned to our room.The breakfast choice was the best we had had. Our room had a view of both the Lake and the Piazza. There are loads of eating places and shops to wander around and also a lovely beach to walk along. As the hotel is inside the town walls, you do have to drive through a pedestrian area to get to it which feels strange but I highly recommend his hotel.

Room Tip: For the best view of the Lake, ask for a room overlooking the decking area which have balconys.
