“Definitely well worth considering this hotel...and my tips on things to do”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Just back home after a brill week in lake Garda. This hotel is one I highly recommend. Firstly the location is perfect for travelling as it is beside the rail station.....we went to Verona for the day and you can go to Venice from here. If travelling by train from bergamo airport via Brescia again you are so lucky as the hotel is at the door nearly of the station. Some train stations have a bad image / reputation as having an undesirable ambience and activity level about them. The ambience is lovely, the area very safe and noise not an issue.
There are many buses which travel from outside the hotel one being the free bus to gardaland. The bus around the lake e.g. To serimione and bordilino all leave from bottom of this street about 3 minutes walk away.
The port in peschiera is about 7 minutes walk from hotel on the edge of the old town.
Handy handy handy!
Only criticism, no swimming pool but we swam twice in the lake in serimione, found beach to the right at End of our street not great to swim in.
The rooms in hotel are clean, spacious, well serviced, very comfortable, we had a large balcony which we requested and a great safe in the room. Breakfast was 730 to 10 and was typically continental, well stocked and fresh.
I recommend eating in the evening in the hotel as food was tasty, well priced and service was good. Sometimes hotel food is seen to be more expensive than restaurants, well not this one.

We hired a moped from a place recommended to us by the hotel receptionist, it was at end of street at gas station. A German man runs it, he is great and is very safety conscions. He gave us route recommendations into the countryside to see vineyards and visit little unknown towns so we followed his itinery to San leoni, villaggio and then onto serimione for a dip.....what a day we had. Moped virgins at 49 and we will be back for more.

Verona is a Good day trip, it is 20 mins on the train. Do go and get train timetables day before you go as price of intercity train to Verona is 9.50 one way and regional train is 1.45 each way ! Very little time difference. Go early to get tickets, be warned as we nearly missed a train and there is considerable times between each. Go to the opera if there, we got tickets in uncredited bank in town for bout 19euro and seats were good. Opera is Long!, from 9.15pm to 1am but worth it. We booked a bus home, it leaves 1/2 hr after opera ends, receptionist will give you more info. Bring a picnic, no glass bottles!

Gardaland....great day. There is recession on in Italy too as is evident in lack of crowds for July. Posts from last year had me begging the others to book fast passes to avoid the queues. DO NOT GET THEM AS QUEUES WERE MINIMAL. Get the app which gives you info on queue times. We waited at most 15 mins but generally 3-10 mins which is fantastic for a theme park. We brought a picnic but food was not overly dear in the park. Lucky we did not book fast passes.

My goodness I could rant on and on but will end now! Enjoy :)

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony facing the front of hotel ? There is no swimming pool or fitness centre thus terri...

We stayed here in June while visiting Gardaland. We stayed here on our way from Florence to Venice. We spent to nights. The hotel is located across the street from the train station and across the street from the free shuttle stop to Gardaland. As this was our only reason for visiting Peschiera del Garda, this hotel it our needs perfectly. The hotel was nice, but was not a standout. There was no family feeling like we had experienced at other hotels. But it was clean and we felt safe.

Spent 3 nights there while on a biz trip. Perfect spot to grab the train in/out of local areas; Verona, Venice, etc. Excellent staff and attentive service although the language barrier might catch you with a few. Dining and bar staff are very nice and the free breakfast worked nicely. Got great nightly ideas on dining in town, all were amazing, do not miss La Torretta and L'Osteria! Rooms were very nice, I got a triple by accident, plenty of room, nice clean bathrooms too. Will visit again if in the region...highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Elevator is small and slow, maybe grab a lower level. Some train noise but not bad if windows are cl...

The hotel is conveniently situated next to he rail station (but we heard no noise in our room) and a 10 minute walk from the historical centre and Lake Garda. The room was large and spotlessly clean with a spacious balcony, The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was excellent. Free parking and free wi fi. Perfect.

My wife and I were touring Northern Italy by train and chose this hotel because of its proximity to the railway station. Well, it couldn't be nearer, so it suited us just fine.
Friendly staff, a comfortable room and a good base from which to visit Verona (by train of course) and Lake Garda by boat.
We are a bit too old for the theme parks etc around this area - but I imagine a good base to visit those too - there is a free bus service from just outside the hotel
Excellent value for money.

Were visiting Gardaland theme park with two teenage children in late August, so chose this hotel due to its close proximity to park and the free shuttle service which picks up from right outside the door. Shuttle runs every half hour in both directions from about 9.30 am to 11.00 pm (although they have a last shuttle back from the park at 11.15pm), When we arrived late in the day the reserved parking was already full, so the hotel owner gave up his own space in a secure garage. Drove through Peschiera del Garda to look at Sirmione on first day - both beautiful. Stunning breakfast. Staff helpful and polite and spoke good English. Rooms comfortable and large. Compared to other Hotels around the lake this is excellent value for money. Only slight negative was lack of power points in the room to charge mobile phones and other electronic gadgets. That said we would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
