Hotel Galvani
Ranked #20 of 26 Hotels in Torri del Benaco
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2007

Contrary to the guests who wrote previous reviews, we were very impressed with the hotel. Except perhaps for families with small children (one has to cross the road at a tricky point to reach the beach), the location is ideal: you are only a few minutes from the center of Benaco, and allowed to enjoy the breathtaking view of the lake from your room balcony or pool area without the stress of noisy/mass tourism, which characterizes many other spots around the lake. One senses attention to detail overall: from the tastefully appointed rooms (and bathrooms!), the fluffy towels and fine table linen and cleanliness of the facilities to the breakfast presentation, the quick response to the guests' needs and wishes, etc. - during our 8-day stay we had absolutely no complaints and will come back and recommend the hotel to friends!

My wife and i stayed in this hotel for two nights in July, 2005. The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk outside of the town. The rooms are not the biggest and the shower room is tiny. The advantages are: view of lake from the front of the hotel and outdoor pool. The hotel, as most others around Garda, are set up for German/Dutch tourists, the tourist information is generally in German. I did not think the staff were rude but i also did not find them particularly helpful either. I would not recommend this hotel, and if anyone was unsure about which of the lakes to visit i would definitely recommend Como before Garda.

The Galvani is an attractive hotel, on the main road, overlooking the lake. Our room was small but clean though the miniscule bathroom was a problem, very difficult to move in the tiny shower. The meals were adequate but the service was extremely slow. The whole holiday was spoilt for us by the fact that the family who run this hotel appeared to dislike British people. We were totally outnumbered by German guests -no problem there - and the staff couldn't do enough for them but treated us with disdain to the point of rudeness from start to finish. We felt uncomfortable all week and were very happy to leave (no 'goodbye' of course) even though Torri del Benaco and the weather were beautiful. We have never had this problem in other Italian hotels.

I stayed at Hotel Galvani for 4 nights. I had a double room to be used as a single in order to have a nice view on the Garda Lake.
Single rooms are only available on the back.
The Hotel is rated as a four stars, but I think that it's too much...
I had a half board treatment, and food was not really italian style as the majority of the guests of the hotel were german. An example: pasta was over cooked and one evening for "entree" we had tunafish with onions! Not really a fours stars treatment!
The personnel is not very kind but the hotel is clean and nice.
Location is quite good because is on the lake, but the hotel is not located in the centre of the small village "Torri del Benaco"; it is on the main street that connects all the villages around the lake, with heavy traffic especially during the week-end.
The overall impression is good, but in my opinion it does not deserves the price.
