“Genuine hospitality and good value for money in charming garden”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

Panoramica is a pleasant family run three star hotel located on the hill above the bay of Salo. The hospitality is genuine, the smiles are real and you are left with a feeling that the world would be just a little bit nicer if more hotels were run this way. We took half pension which included typical Italian breakfast (great croissants) and three course home cooking in the evening; not top restaurant standard but satisfyingly authentic. The clientele when we stayed was over 80% Italian, always a big positive for me; the more locals stay and eat somewhere the less likely it is to be a tourist trap. Other towns on Garda, particularly farther North, tend to be overrun by German and Austrian tourists especially on holiday weekends, so Panoramica, like Salo itself, had a more genuinely Italian feeling to it.

On the downside, as other reviewers have pointed out, the hotel is located between two roads on the main road out of town, and can be noisy when the weather is sunny and bikers are out, having said that it didn't disturb me as much as I expected; the rooms are pretty soundproof when the windows are shut and there is A/C. The panorama from the first floor is nice, but I am sure the second floor has more of the lake visible. We walked down to Salo every day which is a pleasant fifteen minute stroll, though more exerting on the way back up. By car it is maximum five minutes to the car parks on the outskirts of town. The garden near the pool is nicely laid out , and a nice place to relax under the few olive trees despite noise from the road. All in all a great three star hotel run by a friendly helpful family.

Room Tip: Take a top floor room for a better view of the lake

Hotel Panoramica is a fabulous hotel. The owners are friendly, kind and outgoing. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. A/C, WiFi, swimming pool and absolutely amazing meals in the restaurant. We feel so very fortunate to have stumbled on this gem of a hotel. Marco immediately replied to my email messages and questions and reserved the room with no charge. We will definitely be back, we'll bring friends and family and give recommendations at every opportunity! Thank you Novelli Family for a warm, welcoming and relaxing stay.

During our family vacation in North Italy, we searched for a not crowded hotel with warm atmosphere. I sent mail to agritourism Italy and received reply from the Hotel Panoramica in Salo. Although we did not know the exact dates we will arrive to the hotel, Marco Novelli was kind to reserve the rooms for us without any pre-charge! The rooms were waiting for us when we arrived to this unique hotel, quiet and with home atmosphere. We used the hotel as a center place for our travels in North Italy. One of the amazing things in the hotel is the kitchen that prepared amazingly tasty Italian food! Each course during Lunch or dinner was excellent and did not cost much! Better than any restaurant in the area.
We cannot close our review without mentioning the Novelli family, Lucian and Alberto the parents and Luca and Marco the sons who always made sure our stay will be comfortable and enjoyable! Thank you so much!!! We definitely will stay again in this hotel!

Room Tip: Rooms are quiet . The hotel is in a awalking distance to the Garda lake. There are rooms that face t...

Wonderful, family run hotel, with very friendly staff, very good service, very pleasant atmosphere, and good location. If you are planning just to relax and stay away (at least during the night time) from the hustle and bustle of Salo or the other Garda Lake towns, I recommend this hotel. It is atop Salo, with swimming pool, short drive from Salo centre or a 20 min walk. This is great because you can relax away from the crowds. If you are with kids, this is great! They have a small playground, nice kiddie pool and a lap pool. Marco and his brother are very friendly, joyful; the atmosphere there is really nice. Hotel is freshly renovated. It trully is a 3 star (European) hotel. Very good breakfast (included), free WIFI. You will enjoy your stay here!!!!

If you go to the Garda lake, and you don't know where to stop - Make your stop in Salo
If you are in Salo, and you don't know which hotel to choose - Choose Hotel Panoramica !
It is a 3 stars hotel, just re-opened after renovation, very clean, with a swimming-pool, lift, good restaurant, fare prices - but most important: The wonderful worm hospitality of the Novelli family who runs the place. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it !!!
