Reviewed July 2, 2013

We stayed at this lovely small hotel for 6 nights in the very pretty village of Gargnano and fell in love with the place. The hotel is run very well and to a high standard. All the staff are friendly and helpful and we were made to feel extremely welcome, nothing is too much trouble. Our clean and comfortable room had fantastic views over the lake and the generous buffet breakfast on the patio was a great way to start the day. The pool area over the road is set in beautiful gardens. We had a fantastic time at this great little hotel!

Room Tip: Go for a lake view

I stayed at Hotel Europa for a few days during a business conference. I was very pleased with the room. It was very clean, tidy, and comfortable. I had a balcony that looked up over the mountain-side. I was pleasantly surprised with the attentive and friendly service. There was always someone at the front desk, whether it was 6am or 11pm. For a small family-owned and run hotel, this is exceptional service, especially in Italy, where 'normal' business hours seem to be from only 9am to 2pm. Also, they have free wifi, which I have also found to be scarce in Italy relative to the United States. My only complaint would be that the walls are a little thin, but that is not unexpected in an older villa this this one. Overall, I think this hotel is a great value.

My wife Debbie and friends Tim and Sue had a wonderful holiday here. Run by 3 lovely Sisters who make sure your stay is as pleasurable as they can make it. The hotel is very clean and tidy. Breakfast is on a lovely sun terrace and was one of the best continentals we have ever had including homemade produce and fruit from their own garden. The location was ideal with only a short walk into town and the lake side. Gargnano is a lovely little town with marvellous restaurants overlooking the lake. It is very peaceful and does not feel touristy at all. The town Salo has a little more life which is south of Gargnano. The beach was lovely although stoney and not too many people.At the front of the Hotel is a busy road and there is a short walk to the garden and simming pool. We had the Bougainvillea room with balcony with a view of the lake which were very happy with.

Have just returned from a stay in Gargnano, a tranquil, peaceful village on the banks of the lovely Lake Garda. We booked this hotel largely as a result of the high rating on trip advisor and the glowing reports. The room we had was large with good views of the Lake, spotlessly clean, but a little bland with everything beige and no pictures. The shower room was diminutive, with a radiator inside the small shower cubicle! The towel rail was also inside the cubicle!
The public rooms were extremely dated, with a strange display of products for sale dominating the characterless dining room. Breakfast was a disappointment - no fresh fruit (except grapes) just tinned peaches. The (red) Orange juice was tasteless. Dinner, which was provided as part of a package on two nights, was well cooked but the dining room has no atmosphere and nothing to encourage guests to make use of it.
Service was very good at all times and the staff and owners were helpful. A minor fault with the shower was rectified promptly.
Clearly we were expecting more - our expectations having been raised by the previous reviews. With some updating this could easily rate 5 stars,

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the road side.

Imagine if you will a place where time stands still, where the distinct alpine chime of a church bell resonates from a time long past and Bougainville framed windows look down on to the most perfect lake that glitters in the sun, and dances in the moonlight. Imagine quaint little alleys leading into the beating heart of a village where locals welcome the tourists as they would a long lost relative. This is the reality of Gargnano and of the Hotel Europa.
It is an idyllic place full of charm and hospitality and the hotel has all the modern amenities - wifi, air conditioning etc. that makes the stay perfect. Our hosts at the Hotel Europa always greeted us with a smile and a kind word and all of the staff could not have been more helpful.
We would highly recommend the Hotel Europa and the location to anyone planning a vacation to Lake Garda. It is comforting to know that there is indeed a little piece of heaven in existence on Lake Garda. Thank you, we will return!

My husband and I have just returned from this wonderful hotel owned and managed by 3 lovely Sisters who ensure that everyone has the perfect holiday. The hotel is immaculate with a lovely sun terrace for breakfast. The breakfast was the best continental we have ever had including homemade produce and home grown fruits all served by the wonderful Flavia.
Nothing was too much trouble, everyone was so friendly and helpful and the lovely olive oil bath products were a real bonus.
The position was perfect with only a short walk into town or the beach by way of a back lane. The little town of Gargnano is delightful with marvellous restaurants overlooking the lake with pre- dinner aperitifs being quite an essential ingredient to the perfect evening out! There is no bars with music here , it is very peaceful, picturesque and does not feel touristy at all. For more evening life, nearby towns of Salo or Limoni are more the answer.
The beach was delightful (stony) and not too crowded (unlike some beaches !!)The Hotel fronts a busy Road where there is a 50 m walk to the most delightful Swimming pool set within beautiful gardens and Olive Groves, there is no traffic noise here or if you take the lovely lake view rooms but with all the front rooms there will be road noise which may be worth noting. we would have liked a little fridge but otherwise our stay was truly wonderful and we did not want to come home! We truly recommend this Hotel to couples and families with small children .

Room Tip: The corner rooms on the first floor have the largest balconies and are spacious.

All the staff were very helpful and keen to make our experience the best. We upgraded to a corner room with lake views and nice balcony for a small premium.
The bedroom was nicely furnished and homely although the bathroom was very small.
We had a lovely breakfast on the sun terrace and there was a lovely pool in a pretty setting just across the road where they have very nice self catering accommodation available.
Would definitely stay again and recommend to our friends.

Room Tip: Lake view corner room.
