“1st class place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2006

We are a party of 4 between 36-51
This is the 2nd year running that we have stayed at this superb hotel. We could not find any fault at all. Antonio who appears to run the restaurant is absolutely brilliant, he never gets flustered never rushes, but always manages to get everything right, we also did not have to wait long for our meals, even though the restaurant was full, and there only appeared to be himself and another person serving. The hotel staff are all very friendly, and can not do enough for you.
All the rooms over look the lake, and has a lovely snack bar with pool which is right on the edge of the lake, the staff at the snack bar are also very efficient, and friendly.
We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday. We plan to book again for the same time next year. It would make it the 8th year running that we have stayed on lake garda, the 6th time in Limone. Wonderful place.

  • Liked — it is clean and maid service is good
  • Disliked — could do with tea and coffee facilities
  • Stayed September 2006, traveled with friends

Just spent a very nice 7 nights at the Astor and could not find fault with anything. The rooms were spacious and very quiet as the rooms are well away from the main road. Nice balcony overlooking the lake with fantastic views. Only a 10 minute walk into Limone and the boat dock. The food was first class. A good continental spread for breakfast and a good menu choice for dinner. There was always something for everyone as well as an ample salad buffet. Service was just right for us, the hotel was quite full so we had a nice gap between each course as some of the pasta starters were quite large portions. The staff do a wonderful job as they are very busy at dinner as most people tend to arrive at the same time. Dinner is between 7 and 7.30pm but if you go down around 7.15pm you will find things not quite so busy. The hotel has a very nice private pool and beach area with bar and cafe serving very good lunches at very competitive prices. This hotel is definitely worth every one of it's 4 stars. Highly recommended.

The Hotel Astor was such a disappointment that despite booking for 4 days, we checked out after 1. The extra night penalty charge was a bargain - to have stayed here longer would have ruined our otherwise excellent trip to northern Italy.

So what's wrong with the place? Firstly we had no idea how this could have been given a 4* rating. The last time I looked, hotel ratings were not awarded for the view alone.

The bedrooms are extremely pokey, and can only have been designed as a tribute to Mussolini's prison architect. They are tiny, have miniscule beds (I am 6 foot and my feet hung off the end of the bed), with dirty linen. The furniture would have embarassed the marketing manager of Ikea - dreadful. But the worst element was the noise - you could here people in rooms all around just talking - worse, you had a full earful of ablutions and other unseemly activities!

The dining room is also very "package holiday". Poor lighting, tables crammed in with no privacy. Dinner is served between 7 and 7.30 - too early for us, but the food was OK (note though that the catering is intended for german package holidaymakers - but its not bad).

The receptionist was rude. The pool was tiny - the pictures on the website are a little misleading. And there are countless rules and regulations - no hotel towels in the pool, and no pool towels provided, so bring your own. Also you have to "inform the management immediately on arrival if you intend to pay by credit card". Hardly 4* treatment.

If you want a great view of Lake Gara, and like to stay in noisy dirty bedrooms, go for it. But be warned, this is really a 2* hotel with a 4* view. Discerning travellers should avoid!

We had been to Limone before but we stayed in the Hotel Astor for the first time in September 2004. Hotel was very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. They also have a great beach bar and restaurant which was great for lunch. In fact we couldn't fault it and intend to return next year.

Our first visit definitely going back, the hotel staff were very friendly.the hotel facilities & cleanliness four star.
The only snag was that we had to eat at 7pm but food always satisfactory and plentiful.
We did visit Venice and went all around the lake its very scenic, interesting with plenty to do.
Hope anyone else going finds it as wonderful as we did
