This hotel is set into the cliffs overlooking the lake with panoramic views from all rooms. Checkin is on the 5th floor which is also the level of the road through the tunnels. Be aware because the turn to the hotel is just after one of the tunnel exits.

The best views are on the upper floors so when making the reservation request upper levels. There is two different car parks, first on the 5th level which is open and the second is undercover under the hotel but it can be very very difficult to get in and out as some people dont know how to park. The hotel has a buffer style BLD which is great value for money but there are also lots of great restaurants very close by. Limone is a great little town and a wonderful place to holiday in. We would not hesitate in returning to Limone and the Astor.

Room Tip: Go for upper levels for views

This is aour 5the visit to Limone and I must say that the Astor Hotel is the best because of its location. When waking up and going to sleep, you see the lake. The previous hotels we stayed in (Royal and Caravel), also ok, but never directly to the lake and now that we have been to the Astor Hotel, we asked ourselves why we did not book this hotel previously, We only took only bed&breakfast and enjoyed the food every evening in the Montebaldo restaurant in the village.
The hotel is very neat, the staff is nice, but some are having problem with the English language, But...you are in Italy so...no problem.

My husband and I stayed here last month so he could participate in the annual Lake Garda Marathon. We used the past Trip Advisor reviews of this hotel to make our decision and could not be happier. The hotel and staff lived up to all expectations and we could not find fault with any aspect of our stay.
We opted for the half board option which gave us a huge selection at breakfast and a more than adequate choice at dinner and proved very good value for money when compared to the costs of the local Limone restaurants.
The majority of hotel guests were older German trourists and the friendly and helpful staff all spoke German fluently but had enough English for us not to struggle .
As we were driving, we decided to book a secure lock up garage located under the hotel - an extra 5euro per day- but could have easily and safely left the car in the hotel parking area on the road level.
The only minor gripe...no air conditioning as this is shut down throughout the hotel after mid September. We had unseasonably warm weather and some air conditioning would have been appreciated.

We stayed at the Astor for the week commencing 25 June. We wanted a small family run hotel with easy access to Limone but away from the bustle of the town. We booked through Thomas Cook and got a good price - £432 per head B&B. We were not disapponted - it ticked these boxes. and nearly all the others. The outstanding quality of the hotel is the staff. They are universally friendly, efficient and thoughtful, and attentive without being obsequious. Our room was all that we wanted - the bed was comfortable, adequate storage, air conditioning, which we used most of the time in view of the outside temperature, and a good shower/bath and general standard of furniture. Breakfast was well varied and nourishing - the usual continental offering of cold meats, cheese and fruit, plus various cereals and breads and their accompanying spreads. The dining room was bright and sunny, as was the star room of the hotel, the bar/lounge, which served a good range of drinks: for example my daughter got engaged in England during the stay and the hotel offered a very drinkable bubbly at a reasonable price with which to celebrate it.. We only ate in the hotel on one evening: the dinner was good if unmemorable, but the pasta sauce was described as "turnip tops" and we found it a bit greasy. We ate mainly at the Pizzeria near the beach which had a good selection of typically Italian dishes. The pool is well located just down the road and is of a reasonable size and very clean and well maintained, with adequate numbers of loungers and umbrellas. The hotel also is close to the lake's beach which is good for lake swimming in clean safe water. All in all we thouroughly enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I had a most enjoyable fortnight here in September with excellent weather and an average temperature of 25c. Our room was clean and nicely furnished, the only downside being the twin beds which didn't go together too well!! Our balcony had the most wonderful uninterrupted view of the lake, which was great for when we wanted to rest and see the ferries and boats go to and fro. The meals were very good with a good variety over the fortnight. We had a choice of 3 courses for the evening meal with a cold buffet for breakfast. A very pleasant dining room again overlooking the lake. At the top of the hotel was the lounge and bar with a patio terrace which we enjoyed our nightly after dinner drinks (my wife prefering a pot of tea - '...you English and your tea!!..') Down below was a very pleasant swimming pool patio area together with the hotel's own beach and pizzaria bar. The centre of Limone was only a 10 minute stroll away. The hotel staff were very pleasant and cheerful together with an enthusiastic lady cleaner who came in every morning and did a marvellous job. We can thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone.

As many other reviewers have said, it was very difficult to fault the Hotel Astor. This hotel really was ideally located, set into the hillside and overlooking the Lake with stunning views. The center of Limone is literally about five minutes from the hotel along a lovely pathway passing olive groves and old lemon houses (although you can't see the lemon houses as you walk since they had very high walls).

The decor of the hotel was perhaps a little dated, probably from around about the seventies (but not in a garish way!), but we felt this gave it charm and it did not bother us at all. Since there were three of us, we had a triple room which was of ample size, and we also had a larger balcony than any of the other rooms.

The room was furnished with beds, a small television, a reasonably large fitted wardrobe and set of drawers, bed-side tables, good sized en-suite bathroom with a good shower, and a sliding door onto the balcony terrace. We could not fault the room at all and the cleanliness was superb, with a very hard working and friendly member of the cleaning staff who cleaned the room very thoroughly every day.

The staff in general were lovely people and acted as if you were more than just hotel guests. The hotel also has a lovely terrace on the top floor with a bar. The views from here were amazing.

As we were staying bed and breakfast we only sampled the hotel restaurant once (the restaurants in Limone were so nice!). The only problem here was that we were unaware that dinner choices had to be made at breakfast, but the staff were extremely accomodating and were only too happy to fit us in even though we had not followed the correct procedure.

The restaurant was a little restrictive given that you had to be there between 7.00pm and 7.30pm, but dinner itself finished at around 8.30pm and was delicious. The menu for the night we ate there had three choices for each course, and an excellent salad buffet too. It was a very nice meal and the staff were wonderful.

The hotel pool was absolutely perfect, a good size with a shallow end and a suitably deep end too, and also a baby pool. There were plenty of sun loungers which were always easy to get hold of (having stayed in some hotels where you almost never get a lounger this was a real treat!). The pool also looked as if it was located on the site of an old lemon house, although I cannot be certain of this.

Downstairs from the pool was a delightful little pizzeria, where again, the staff were excellent. The food was fantastic, if a little restricted to the typical tourist range of food! The pizzeria was also very close to the Lake and the hotel has a harbour and beach area on the Lake. It has to be said that some form of swimming shoes are required in the Lake as the 'shingle' beaches were sometimes a little more rocky! But if you climbed down a short ladder from the harbour then you didn't notice this so much. The lake was very cold but also recommended!

It should be noted that while most of the staff spoke reasonable English, German was clearly their forte, and menus and signage was often geared towards those speaking German. However, this is true of many places in Limone and the Lake towns in general, although hardly surprising considering that parts of the Lake used to belong to Austria.

One other point to note is that when you arrive at the hotel, you arrive on the road running above the hotel and you have to enter it down a flight of stairs to reach the reception (not great if you are lugging suitcases, as we were since we arrived by coach!) There was also parking available, although we did not use this. The reception is on the top floor, and you have to hand in your key every time you leave the hotel, which was a bit inconvenient but not exactly a hardship!

The only thing that might put people off staying here is the long transfer time from Verona airport, which we endured on a coach doing numerous hotel drop-offs around the lake. It is also a long trip to Verona if you are doing a day-trip. But if you are thinking of staying here, please do not let that put you off staying in what is a really excellent hotel in a lovely little town on the lake. I really wish I had not had to leave and would go there again in a second.

This was our first time in Limone, Lake Garda and I couldn't fault a thing. The Hotel Astor was fantastic, the food was excellent, the hotel was spotless, everything was really well organised. The staff were friendly and catered for every need. There was a really great restuarant next to the beach area which also served great food. I would definitely recommend this hotel and resort and I would go back again tomorrow.
