“Fell in love with Bardolino!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

First of all, the hotel!....It was a last minute booking, due to a hired minibus breaking down which had to be fixed at a garage nearby! Right! The hotel is very close to the Town, it is clean and has a lovely covered verandah to sit on with a beer or glass of wine! One very lovely young reception lady who was so helpful and cheerful and spoke great English! They done a good breakfast too....Now the negatives! The bathrooms weren't great! They done the job, but the wet room was very small, everything got wet and water came out the bathroom door and onto the bedroom floor, which was quite annoying and dangerous! There was one member of staff, a young male who really was quite rude and acted like everything was a chore and you were getting in the way!....Now for Bardolino!!! Wow, what a place! It was spotlessly clean with flower arrangements everywhere! I fell in love with Bardolino and would move there in a heartbeat! The church in the Town centre was the most beautiful place with amazing architecture and paintings! It made me quite speechless...and I'm not religious!!....The streets have lovely little shops and there is a surprise around every corner! The lake front is beautiful, especially near the harbour and the sunset was the best I've ever seen! Could have stayed there forever! Some lovely little restaurants and bars to sit outside and watch the World go by!! I will definitely be returning to Bardolino in the future, but will probably choose a different hotel!

The hotel was in a very good location, excellent staff, rooms and facilities were spotless, the breakfast was ample, plenty of choice, especially the fried eggs.
The shower curtain was also all right once we had mastered it.
Centrally located, with the bus stop around the corner, Bardolino shops and restaurants minutes away.
We would both come back again, as it was very good value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annexe were quieter, than the main hotel.

The advantages of this hotel: central location, easy access to bus stops, pharmacy, bakery and other shops. Five minutes walk to the town centre. Set beside a busy road yet if you keep the windows shut, there is no traffic noise at night. Air conditioning in the room means you can shut the window on a hot night and be both comfortable and quiet. The breakfasts are very good, as is the dining room itself. The staff are helpful and welcoming with the exception of one sulky young male member of staff.

The disadvantages: Due to UK Health & Safety laws, our agent was unable to allocate us a balcony room. The rooms are on the small side, which is fine if you don't intend to spend much time in them. They are also rather tired-looking and very basic - also fine if you just want to sleep there. The biggest disadvantage by far was the bathroom which was both small and hazardous. The whole room is a wet room i.e. the bathroom itself is a shower room. There is a shower curtain that you can pull round yourself but you find that it is no use whatsoever in keeping the rest of the room dry. So you can't really take clothes or towels into the room unless you are prepared for them to get soaked. After a shower is the hazardous bit as the water drains into a central drain set in the floor and the floor remains wet for a considerable time. You have to take great care at this point. The other disadvantage is that in our bathroom a raised metal bar had been set in front of the door to prevent the tide of water from spilling over into the bedroom. Unfortunately, it was at least 4cm short and therefore, could not always contain the tide so we had the bathmat on the bedroom side to soak up the overflow.
This apart, I'd recommend the hotel, as long as you aware of the shortfalls.

I made a mistake while booking a hotel for our holiday - I had no idea that there were 2 hotel Vittorios on Lake Garda. Needless to say, when I realised I had booked the worng one and saw the other reviews I was worried. I did confess to my husband before going and we decided to go with an open mind.
We arrived during Assumption week - a huge celebration in Italy - and the area was busy. The hotel is in the town centre, by a roundabout. But once the shutters were down and the aircon was on, it was pretty quiet. We did notice a real difference during the last 3 days of the stay when the celebrations were over as it did become considerably quieter.
Service at the hotel was excellent, and the rooms were cleaned every day. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and you could have cereal, fruit, and continental breakfast (including croissants and cakes). You could eat inside or outside.
The design of the wet room is a little curious, but actually did not pose a problem. By using the shower curtain as it was intended, there were no issues.
The staff were lovely and accomodating and you could really talk to them - not at all aloof like those I have encountered in 4 / 5 star hotels.
So, in conclusion, remember this is in the town centre and the wet rooms are quirky and then you will enjoy your time. It really is worth a chance!

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.
