Hotel Al Castello
Ranked #9 of 26 Hotels in Torri del Benaco
Reviewed August 20, 2008

I have never written a review on a web site before, but having come back from our brilliant holiday in Torri and stayed at Hotel Castello I really wanted to let other people know considering staying there how great it was.

It isn't a five star luxury hotel, but it is a friendly, family run hotel, the rooms are cleaned every day to a high standard, we were on a half board package and the food was great both at breakfast and dinner including service.

The hotel is centrally located, near waterfront, restaurants and bus routes and the air conditioning is great. I labour this point becuase we went to Torri for a friends wedding so there were a number of guests staying in various hotels in torri some who were paying £200 a night and their air conditioning was switched off at mid night and they were roasting. We had to switch ours off because it was too cold.

The only point i would say is that there are no fridges in the room and when the tempatures are as hot as we expereinced that would have helped, but over all we had a great holiday, the accomodation was great, torri is brillinat and i can't wait to go back again.

Having stayed in many 3, 4 and 5 star hotels we werea little concerned about this being a 2/3 star residence, but we need not have been concerned at all the hotel was very clean, staff and owners very friendly, nothing was too much trouble and the food to die for especially mamas home made deserts!!!!! exquisite. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel and resort 100%.

WE have just returned from a week's holiday there and the hotel was excellent.The small family run hotel had excellent home cooked food and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.The rooms are basic but clean.
Torri is a lovely quiet resort.The small shops and restaurants were good value and the area is mainly flat so easy to walk about.
It's easy to get the ferries to other towns and villages around the lake and this is a lovely relaxing way to travel.
A great place to go to relax and sample home cooked Italian food.

First time on Lake Garda, wasn't sure where to stay in the masses towns and villages. Chose Torri because it seemed one of the less-touristy areas.
Having not read much on this hotel, booked with some trepidation. Need not have worried; booked direct with the Hotel, who kept in touch via mail.
Staff were tremendous, very efficient and friendly. Check-in was seamless, room had excellent air-conditioning unit (at a previous hotel I had to sleep UNDER the air-conditioning unit to get any comfort). Room was basic, very clean, with a great view of the lake and castle opposite. Small bathroom, but no issues there.
The hotel seemed quite small, no bar area that I could see.

Torri is a great place to visit, locals are very friendly and accomodating. One thing I noticed was the abundance of Germans who strutted about as if the owned the town; being a fluent German speaker, I understood their conversation, most of it non-complimentary directed at non-Germans. However, do not let it put you off from visiting this charming town, and when you do I would certainly recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from our first trip to Italy. We stayed at Al Castello hotel. This is a lovely small hotel, ran by the Zucchetti Family, which lived up to my expectations of a typical Italian hotel. Set in an excellent location in the medieval town of Torri del Benaco and overlooking a very impressive castle on the shores of Lake Garda. The room (with balcony and lake view) was basic, but spotless and extremely comfortable. The air conditioning was much appreciated. We were booked in half board and had a great taste of Italian home cooking. It was delicious and very reasonably priced. Along with a good bus service, Torri del Benaco has its own ferry port so all of the other resorts on the Lake are easily accessible. Malcesine is a 20 minute bus ride and once there we experience the heights of Monte Baldo, fortunately it was a beautiful day, so the view from the top was breathtaking. Taking a 1½ hr walk in the opposite direction took us to Garda. Again, the scenery around the lake and the Lakeside towns were spectacular. We were going to go to Venice on a day trip, but to spend 2½hrs on a bus each way didn't seem appealing, besides there was plenty to do and see around the lake. We hope to return to Italy again in the not too distant future.
