This property had it all for our recent trip, after a few hectic days it was a great relief to find the hotel only a short walk from the train station. It has a lovely pool with a shady garden. The staff were all nice and friendly. The breakfast was as good as you will get anywhere with a great choice. Quiet location with only a short walk to the lake and town centre. Our family room was very comfortable and spacious. All in all vey relaxing place.

Stayed in this hotel in June and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a family run hotel and staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good and tea/coffee and drinks were served during the day when requested. The pool was very clean and the surrounding area very well kept with no shortage of sunbeds. The garden provided shade also when required. It is only a few minutes from the train station in Desenzano where you can visit Verona, Venice, Milan and many more places of interest. It was about 10 minutes walk to the harbour where you can board a ferry to the neighbouring towns on the lake. The only down side if you are not too good on the walking is the uphill back to the hotel from centre but the hotel nevertheless is in a very good location. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and look forward to staying there again in the near future.

Room Tip: Room with a veranda

The hotel is not recent, but well enhanced with new bathroom and good airco equipment. Our room was second floor with a view over the Garda-lake. Very clean and spacious. English spoken personnel, very helpfull and friendly. As the wheather had just changed to summer the airco needed a re-boot, but this happened immediately. Breakfast was extensive and complete, while many guests were present. Good service! Hotel has very nice swimming pool. Location is ideally suited (5 - 10 min walk to and from Desenzano city center. Parking facilities. Overall we felt we had a great stay at Benaco.

and...the dog was a real joy!

Room Tip: some lake side rooms have a balcony without direct sun, which can be nice during a warm summer

The location is very good for the railway station, where buses also leave for various destinations including Sirmione. The welcome was fairly understated and we had to ask for the wi-fi details. The hotel is a grand old building with a very nice aspect to the front where there is an immaculate swimming pool area (which never seemed very busy). This does mean noise carries and we could hear people above us and next door very early in the morning. Breakfast unremarkable. The rooms were clean and spacious. Don't stay here if you don't like or are allergic to dog - Stella is incredibly well trained though and personally we were fans!

I stayed at the Benaco hotel in June 2014. It is a lovely quiet hotel and the people who run it were extremely helpful and kind. They also have a cute collie by the name of Stella who was the star of the week!

It is a three star hotel and the rooms are spotless and mine (110) was more than big enough.

The location is excellent. Just a five minute walk from the train station at Desenzano - which is perfect if you want to explore the nearby cities of Verona (20 mins), Venice (1.5hr) and Milan (1.5hr).

The walk to the lake, harbour and main part of Desenzano is about ten minutes max. It is a very pretty and safe area.

The pool was very refreshing, and Stella, who is trained not to go in to the pool, likes to race any swimmers to the other side. Very cute and funny!

The staff went out of their way to be helpful and made my stay even more enjoyable.

I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Especially for the location and for Stella!

Room Tip: Room 110 overlooks the pool and you can just see the lake too!
