“Great location and service”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hotel was lovely. Clean, spacious rooms, free evening snacks by the bar, wine tasting in the hotel one evening from a local vineyard and a great pool.
Very short walk into the centre of Desenzano so very good location and has free parking too.

Great hotel, perfect location if you want it too busy .Five minute walk from the hotel to the center of Desenzano and ten minutes to the railway station for trains to Venice,Milan, Verona. Spotlessly clean, modern and well maintained with a nice outdoor swimming pool. Staff were very friendly and helpful.All in all a great hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are very quiet.

Just returned from 10 nights at the Hotel Nazionale with my family (including my mother). The hotel was very accommodating to our needs even down to helping organise our airport transfer. The hotel is impeccably decorated, with a quiet terrace and pool, only equalled by the professionalism and helpfulness of the very friendly staff. Breakfast choice is excellent and can be eaten in the spacious dining room or on the terrace. We found this a very relaxing holiday in an ideally placed hotel for exploring the lake, Venice etc. Desenzano itself, while the largest town on the lake still has the distinct piazzas, harbours and streets synonymous with Lake Garda. It also has excellent transport with the train station a leisurely 10 min walk from the hotel, a bus stop outside (to get to peschiera and gardaland), and the town centre and boats 5 mins walk away. We will definitely be returning to lake garda but will not require trip advisor as the Hotel Nazionale will be our 1st choice hotel. Don't be fooled by the 3 star rating, this hotel is better than a lot of 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Book and you won't be disappointed.

This was an excellent place to stay in Desenzano and ideally located. It was a short walk to the town centre and about a 10 minute, gentle uphill walk to the station for trains to Venice and Milan. The hotel is very well furnished and decorated and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. We found the staff to be, without exception, friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We spent one day relaxing around the pool area which was perfect. Breakfast was excellent and can be eaten inside or on the pool terrace. Would recommend and would like to revisit.

Room Tip: We booked superior rooms on the 2nd floor which were on the east side of the building overlooking th...

Stayed at the Hotel Nazionale from the 27/07/13 - 03/08/13 would highly recommend this hotel if travelling to Desenzano. The hotel is only rated as 3 star but should definitely be 4****. On arrival we got to the hotel at 10.30am and was really pleased the room was ready so was able to drop our cases off and explore the local area. The staff are really helpful about advise on how to get about ie the local train service and the ferries to the places round the lake. Everyday the room was cleaned and towels changed. The pool was a lovely relaxing place to be but not enough sunbeds, but we did what the German's did and put towels out in the morning. The breakfast which was included in the price was lovely and the Prosecco was a nice touch as well.

Room Tip: Stay in the poolside rooms - 120-127

Could not fault this hotel at all. The only thing and it really is the only thing is it's not down on the front where the action is. This however can be seen as a good thing because it's a bit quieter at night, away from the bars and it's only a 5 minute or so walk to town. The hotel is spotlessly clean, including the stairwell adjacent to the lifts. (These areas can so often be neglected.) The pool is lovely, and the whole place befitting of a higher rating than 3 star.

We chose the hotel based on comments from Tripadvisor for an overnight stop en-route to Venice & wished that we could have stayed for a week. Easy access from the motorway & excellent on-site parking. A short walk from the lakeside & charming old harbour of Dezenzano where several inviting restaurant terraces await. The multi-lingual staff were friendly & helpful. Our spacious rooms were upgraded FOC from standard to deluxe with small balconies enjoying views of the lake. Breakfast was particularly impressive & the poolside terrace is perfect for the first aperitif. We shall certainly return someday for a longer stay.
