After searching numerous hotel sites for a romantic place at lake Garda we finally made our choice by booking our stay in hotel Nationale for 5 days. We have done some serious research and this was this best value for money hotel anywhere near the lake! Our stay was part of a trip from Rome (4 days), Firenze (2 days), Desenzano (5 days).
Remarkably the hotel is rated as a three star hotel, but considering all the luxury and service one could easily see it should be rated as a four star. So why is it so great?
As for all holiday locations you want to be near the main points of interest. Its very close to city centre for approximately 5 min walking, near the harbour and close to a car rental (europe car) agency. All the rooms have a good view.
We had booked a superior double room which was really great: it was very clean, comfortable and trendy. Also no outside noise. The only negative thing here are the beds, which are a bit hard. But it didn't spoil our stay.
The hotel breakfast is very fresh and divers - the pool scene is great, enough beds and umbrella's and a very nice garden - enough parking space - and last but not least the hotel is very trendy decorated.
The hotel staff is very kind and helpful except for one woman behind the service desk. I didn't recall her name, but she is the only female person (blond hair). Her attitude is very uncomfortable. If it was up to me as the hotel manager I would say get some proper education about handling hotel quest or get out. She absolutely makes no effort to make you feel welcome. Not a simple "good morning" or "good evening here is your key, have a good night"- nothing not even a simple smile.
Her attitude was the only unpleasant thing during our whole stay.
All together me and my girl recommend this hotel highly
Have a nice stay!
