We had a great stay in this hotel. The staff were very friendly & the service was great-lovely breakfasts. Situated in a great spot in Bardolino .. very near the lake but out of the bussle.It gave us an affordable way to stay in this beautiful part of Italy. Fantastic value for money & a perfect base for a holiday

We have just returned from a week stay in the Vittoria, where we had a lovely time. We weren't expecting much, given the TripAdvisor reviews and the price, but were pleasantly surprised.
The hotel is in a superb location, just a stone's throw from the bus stop, and a minutes walk to the main promenade.
The quality of the hotel itself was much better than expected. The staff were friendly (especially Laura on reception), although on occasions lacking in English fluency (but seemed keen to learn). Breakfast each morning was good, with a range of fresh options including brioche and cakes, as well as the usual med ham, cheese, rolls etc.
Our room was bright and clean, with air conditioning (essential in the 100 degree heat we encountered!) and was comfortable to stay in. Having said this, the bathroom leaves much to be desired. It is very small, and logistically challenging - the shower is in the center so its curtain hangs in the way when not in use, and does little to prevent the whole room becoming flooded when you do shower. In addition, there were no bedside lamps, and no refrigerator - quite a pain in such heat, when it would be nice to keep drinks cool in the room.
Nevertheless, these are minor inconveniences, maybe to be expected from a lower budget hotel. The hotel exceeded all our expectations, and provided a comfortable base for our stay. It deserves much better reviews than it seems to have received, and we would gladly return to stay again.

We have just got back from a brilliant week. The hotel is small as are the rooms - but so are the prices! The place is friendly, really good value for money and brilliant just to chill out on the patio. Free wi-fi too. Laura was especially brilliant.

Having taken into account the previous mixed reviews for this hotel, me and my girlfriend took a bit of a risk and booked a great late deal package for the second week of August. It cost £280ea, which is important context for this review.

The Vittoria is a family run hotel and the staff are very welcoming and helpful - especially the receptionist who has very good English.The location for the hotel is really good. It is not on the lakeside though and room views were limited. We were situated in the annexe and so our view was of the other section of the hotel and the roundabout. We did experience some noise on the Saturday night from the bar across the road, but during the week this wasn't a problem.

The hotel is just off the main road, so it is a very short walk to the bus station, pharmacy and the supermarket - and crazy golf. There is a fantastic patisserie right opposite the hotel, from which we enjoyed many lovely pastries and bought many gifts for our friends and family. The walk into the town takes about 5mins and passes by a small grocery store which is very reasonable for bottled drinks, fruit and such like - cheaper than anywhere bar the supermarket.

In the hotel itself there were no lifts, and the two flights – potentially 3 flights – were tricky with 2 x suitcases (what a gentleman I am). The room we had was very small; merely a double bed (made of 2 x singles) a wardrobe and a desk. It was difficult even to find room for the suitcases, which made it cramped, I tended to leave mine at the bottom of the wardrobe. There was only a small window, with shutters, net curtains and luckily a fan - it was extremely hot. As has been discussed in previous reviews the bathroom is a wet room, which can cause issues if not managed, my poor rough guide got soaked when I put it on the stool. The room, though small, was clean and cleaned everyday as would be expected.

The breakfasts were great, usual continental fare with lots of excellent cakes (is there a theme running through this review?!) Breakfast could be taken out on the front terrace or in the dining room. There was no pool, which we knew, but there were two terraces on the first floor of the main section of the hotel. One was shaded, overlooking the main road (which we were directly opposite in the annexe) and the other was at the front of the hotel above the breakfast terrace. We used this almost everyday to catch some sun on the loungers/chairs, people watch and to get out of the room.

Overall we were very happy with the hotel – knowing and experiencing as we did the limitations, although if we had paid the £595ea brochure price we may have thought differently. Bardolino is an excellent little resort and was absolutely heaving when we were there. This was our second year in a row on Lake Garda – Riva last year – and we enjoyed it just as much. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops with plenty of places nearby to visit – the 50min walk to Garda is easy and flat, Lasize is 1hr15m in the other direction and the Zeni wine museum is 15mins up the hill to taste the famous Bardolino wine. You can never get bored of relaxing by the lake, with your drink of choice, watching the lake gently undulate.

After reading reviews of this hotel on trip advisor my girlfriend and i got a little worried. We booked through crystal holidays after struggling to find a hotel in lake garda which was not half board. On arrival we were greeted by several members of the family which run the hotel and checked in mwithout any problems whatsoever. The room was no where near as small as other reviews made out. The location of the hotel could not be better literaly right aroung the corner from the bus stop, 2 minutes walk into the town center and promanade, close enough to all the bars and restaurants but not too close to be kept awake at night. The staff the daytime receptionist Monica was especially helpful getting train and bus times for us to goto verona, milan and venice on the public buses and train.
Over all this is a nice hotel for people who want to get out and about from the hotel but have somewhere clean and fresh to come back to, probably best for young couples as there is no lift .

We have just returned from a weeks stay in the hotel vittoria well
all i can say is we did get a good deal but if i had known before-hand i would have paid a bit more and gone to another hotel.On
arrival we were given a room no bigger than a broom cuboard that had a small window with shutters that was so hot you could hardly breathe and the shower was a hole in the floor no cubicle
just in front of the toilet so the whole room was wet after showering making it hazardess. Then that was not mentioned was the main road and the noise of people shouting and reving engines untill about 5 oclock in the morning we did not get a nights sleep for the whole holiday the best time to sleep is about 4 oclock in the afternoon when every where was quite.We did complain to the rep about the room and after a bit of a discussion we were give a room with a balcony which was a bit cooler but the noise obviously was still the same(we were charged 25 euros for changing rooms which we were not told about untill we were leaving so this left us short of money for the airport) Go to bardolino and lake garda because despite the hotel we had a fantastic holiday but avoid the vittoria.

We arrived to find a very small, yet well kept, room. The bathroom was basically just a wet cubicle.
Probably the biggest let down for us was the fact that we were lied to by latedeals.co.uk and Crystal and told that we would have balconies, when in fact, we did not. All of the 6 rooms with balconies seemed to be reserved for the non-English (Germans) and all of the English were put around the back with rooms so small you couldn't even pass one-another. For us, a balcony is essential, so this was extremely disappointing.
We would not go again, and we CERTAINLY WOULD NOT recommend Crystal or latedeals.co.uk
