“Good location & value for money”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

In the centre of town, perfect for exploring the lake and arriving from the train station. Breakfast was plentiful and room was very spacious but a bit noisey if you are on the street side though and rooms were a bit hot. Free bicycle hire from the hotel is a great idea just make sure bikes are in working order before you take off 20k's and one pedal fall totally off!! Good value for money!

Stayed just the one nite mainly as a "pit stop" between the Cinque Terre and Bavaria,but as soon as we arrived wished we had more time,but because onward bookings already made could not stay longer.Hotel clean and comfortable and in great location with plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby.If you arrive by car,just pull up right outside the main door on the pavement,check in and you will be given directions to park your car 5/10 mins walk away.Took the ferry over to Garda and had a fantastic couple of hours there in the beautiful spring sunshine.This area must be awesome in the summer if this was anything to go by!But imagine it would be very popular too!Enjoyed our brief stay and would certainly stay again at the same hotel if we were visiting.

Stayed at this hotel some 20 years ago and it is as good today as it was then. It is not luxurious but the rooms are clean and everything you need is supplied. Our room had a balcony overlooking the harbour and it was wonderful to sit out late in the day and watch the activity below. This is an ideal spot to catch the ferries to other towns on Lake Garda and the Garda Restaurant just a few steps away was fabulous. The staff spoke English and were extremely helpful. It is also an easy train ride to Verona for a days exploring.

Room Tip: get a room on the lakeside with balcony

We stayed here over the weekend in mid September. We were upgraded to a room at the front of the hotel with a balcony over looking the marina great for relaxing and enjoying a glass of wine watching the world go by. The room was a good size with modern facilities and very clean. The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming. There was a well stocked buffet breakfast which provided a great start today with both hot and cold food. Give the scrambled eggs and bacon a try. The hotel provides free bike hire for hotel guests on a first come first served. There wasn't a great demand during our stay and we were able to use the bikes on everyday of our stay. The area is fairly flat and good for the casual cyclist. The terminal for the boats trips around the lake is just across the road and the hotel is a 15 minute walk from the station and all down hill. Take a taxi back only 6 euros. If you are looking for a comfortable stay in the Lake Garda area give this hotel a try. The town of Desanzano has ample restaurants to try and we found the food to be good quality. Pay a visit to the organic Gelateria round the corner from the hotel in the square by the church the ice cream is to die for.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the hotel even if you have to pay a little extra it is well worth the...

our room had sweeping views of lake garda and the main square which was lovely in the morning. the shower was a little broken, and the room overall a little clinical. the breakfast was ok - coffees were generous but the buffet itself was a little uninspiring. the gentleman on the front desk was charming and helpful, and recommended a great pizza & pasta place for dinner. a little pricey at 115 euros, but we did book last minute. good location on the waterfront. the train station is a 15 minute walk away.

We stayed at the hotel and decided to at at the adjacent restaurant "al Ponte". Best move we have made in Italy.
The belinni cocktails are the best we had in Italy - and at €8 each were much better value than any ther bellini cocktails we have had in Italy - these took some time to come but were made with fresh peaches and were delicious. The food was also inexpensive and great value for money.
We highly recommend both th hotel and restaurant.
Our room ( at €105 per double) had a four star view over Lake Garda that was the best one could imagine. Situated close to the ferry terminal, the hotel is ideally placed to explore Lake Garda. The only disadvantage is that there is no on-site parking, but you can park at the town's underground parking station and get a discount voucher from the hotel which provides all day parking for €9.
Hotel rooms are basic - but good value for 2-star accommodation.
Highly recommended as good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front - and you will get a great view. And don't forget to ask for a card...

Stayed here as a base for exploring lake garda. Had a balconyt overlooking the lake on 4th floor along with sun loungers and what a view, expecially for fireworks. Room was nice, seemed recently done up with fridge etc. Hallways etc looka tad old but rest assured room is nice. Theres also 2 friendly lizards hanging around the corridors which initially scare you but they don't bother you. Sleep is good, nice and quiet though air con is only fair enough
Breakfast is nice, lots of variety and no shortage of good food. Bus stop is only 1 min away for sirmione to verona and train station is easy to walk from (downhill) but i wouldn't be bringing bags back to it due to uphill. Milan is 1 hour 10 mins away, verona is 25 mins away on train.
Visit sirmione and perchiera, both lovely.
