“Excellent location & a friendly, helpful service”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Me & my wife recently stayed in this hotel & it was a truly pleasant experience. We requested a room with a lakeview at the very top floor & it was granted. The view of the lake was lovely and the sight of the sun rising over the lake each morning was simply beautiful.

The hotel sits across from the harbour, making it very easy to hop on to a boat & visit the rest of the lake. It is also centrally located and is very close to excellent restaurants.

We found all the hotel staff to be very helpful with anything we needed. We will certainly be staying here again the next time we visit Desanzano.

We booked the hotel based on previous reviewers and the process was quite easy with booking.com. Emailed the manager to request room above 1st floor and he kindly replied to confirm this. Room was actually 406 on top floor with terrace/balcony and this was ideal with superb views. Pleasant sitting out with an evening drink! Arrived on Sunday pm and road in front of hotel was closed one way near ferry terminal so had to do a detour to find other way in. This is normal for Sundays so beware if arriving by car.
Receptionist very helpful when checking in and gave us discounted ticket for underground car park 5 minute walk away. 9 Euros a day parking but no alternative really.
The hotel is a little dated but has been modernised in the foyer where free wi-fi can be found aswell as good reception in room.
Excellent choices for breakfast, hot and cold, with drinks being served by the busy staff and replenishments of food being continual.
Hotel Vittorio is ideally situated on the front and close to a wide range of shops, restaurants and interesting sights. Ferry terminal is one minute away! The Tuesday market sets up slap bang in front of the hotel, stretching both ways and by 3pm all is cleared and streets cleaned!
We enjoyed Desenzano and found it a good base for touring round the lake or ferry-hopping to other resorts.

Room Tip: Rooms on 1st and 4th floors have terraces/balconies while 2/3 floors have small balconies. Seemingl...

This hotel is right on the harbour and is perfectly located for everything, not far from the train station and very close to where can catch the boat for trips around the lake. Plenty of restaurants nearby, room was clean and a good size. Only criticism is that location of our room (by the small harbour area) meant it was a little noisy at night due to closeness to all restaurants, our room also had very poor wi-fi service. Breakfast is very good with a lot of choice.

We chose this hotel purely for its location, it was our wedding anniversary so upgraded room. I had arranged champagne to be in the room on arrival.

We were a little early at the hotel and on arrival, the receptionist told my husband that the champagne wasn't ready and wouldn't be long. (Bang went the surprise !) We waited for over an hour for it to arrive once in room and gave up waiting as we wanted to explore area, so told reception we would be back at 5, arrived back at hotel just after and still no champagne in room around half hr later it arrived with a bowl of strawberries. Kind of went past the stage of actually wanting it by then.

Our room was ok, the shower had mold on it and the tray that holds the toiletries had fallen off and was on the shower tray.

The plug socket in the room under the table was literally hanging out, the balcony was dirty to the point that there was a metal can that had been left behind on it.


Location wise hotel is perfect, short walk to ferry stop, and restaurants/shops etc.

Dear Madams and Sirs

thank you for being our guests !

Sorry that champagne in the room was not a surprise for your wife but you arrived really very early , in the morning and rooms are available from 13 , sometimes also before.
We usually do not serve champagne for breakfast and it is not possible to put a bottle in the room too much in advance , we put it in an ice bucket and for one hour it is ok but more you will find just a bowl of water instead of ice ! Becouse of this we prefer to serve it with fresh fruits when you are in the room ( it is a surprise also in this case ! why not ? ), it not possible for us to know when you arrive, when you go out or come back and so on, this is an hotel not a college. We also didn't know you do not like strawberry, sorry for this , we always serve champagne with fresh strawberry and poeple usually appreciate this, sorry you was so disappointed for this , may be you are allergic ? If you told us before it was not a problem for us to serve something else .If you found something broken in the room you had just to tell us and we always repair it as soon as we know. Sometimes guests do not pay so much attention to Hotel's things and do not use them correctely , so may happen that they break something but is not a problem for us to repair it !!
Nevertheless I hope you had a nice time in our town and a romantic anniversary watching the sunset on the lake drinking finally a glass of good champagne with your wife on the balcony !!

This hotel has a great location, right beside the port in Desenzano. We had a clean room with a modern good bathroom and great beds. Our room at the fourth floor had a big balcony with a stunning view. It was lovely to sit out there in the evenings, and even if the hotel lies near the restaurant area, it's peaceful without any annoying noise. Everyone of the staff we met was service minded and made us feel welcome. Good value for money, and we would like to come back here.

Very clean and friendly hotel situated by the lake. Lake view rooms are worth the extra. Rooms are a good size with very good bathrooms. Breakfast is excellent. Good value for money. Staff are very friendly. The hotel is located near to the ferry station and opposite the bus stop for the train station (for Verona, Venice and Milan). Desenzano is ideal for touring Lake Garda.
