The Aquila d'Oro Hotel, Golden Eagle, itself it's nice; it’s located between Sirmione and Desenzano, in a great location for visiting the Garda Lake by car. It has a wonderful view of the lake and the structure is quite modern. The general comfort is adequate enough, and there’s a very useful parking. It has wi-fi, room cleaning and sleeping comfort of the bed are ok. The lake side rooms are nice. Very good value for money, definitely convenient. Looking at these matters, I may suggest it. The hotel also has a park and a restaurant overlooking the lake, but I have not tried. The breakfast it's served in a very nice glassed room and is quite large, although it offers more packaged products instead of fresh ones. For an Anglo-Saxon tourist, on the buffet are missing many dishes, but you may demand a La Carte. That said, there are several aspects that I didn’t appreciate. Firstly, the quality of room's comforts, in my opinion not at the same level of the international standards for a 4 stars hotel. Although it offers a lot, I didn't notice the finishes typical of this category, I've found everything basic in some way. For example, the bathroom dated and not so refined, the bed sides lack the courtesy lights, the walls are very thin and you can hear the sounds from the other rooms. The Hotel it’s sometimes a little bit kitsch. Eg, the decorations inspired by Klimt, which are pointing to the artist's stay on the lake, but they are too heavy and needlessly burdening the interiors. Instead I recognize that someone else may like this. So, just don't expect a great luxury, average and not too fancy, but good. I must say that I have noticed this in all the Garda region, it seems that in the area they haven't known how to reinvent themselves: everything from restaurant menus to the hotels has stagnated at 20, 30 years ago, which sends back to a kind of approach to the tourism tipycal of the 80's, an era of German and Italian tourists that has completely disappeared. I think that they haven’t well understood the needs of the modern tourists and I must say that the hotel staff gave me the same impression, not too friendly, with some behaviors that I found exceedingly confidential, but these are subjective issues. This does detract anything from the beauty and importance of the place: overall, the Lake Garda absolutely worth a visit and the Aquila d'Oro hotel can be a good place as HQ.
