My wife and I stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Continental in Lovere. It's an adequate place to spend a few nights, but not a great hotel.
The hotel is conveniently located, just on the outskirts of Lovere, on the Lago d'Iseo. It takes around 10 min to walk into the centre of town, and there is a pavement all the way there. The hotel has an underground car park, and is well suited to people touring the area by car.
Our room had a view over the lake towards the mountains, and was decently sized, with a large bathroom. There was a small TV, which unfortunately has no English channels (in fact, only has Italian channels, no French or German etc). The light in the corridor outside the room didn't work, and the staff acknowledged this fact when we arrived, but showed no signs of any desire to fix it, so this meant that we had a bit of a fumble in the dark to open the door every evening. The room was not brilliantly clean when we arrived, in fact there was a 2-Euro piece in the corner of the room, which shows how sloppy the cleaners must be! And my wife had to ask for a bottle of cleaner to clean the bath on arrival.
There is breakfast included in the price of the room, which is served as a buffet. There is a small selection of cereals, yoghurts, cold meats and cake. And you can order coffee as required.
The best feature of the hotel was definitely the staff, who were very helpful, and were happy to provide advice (in English) on local facilities, and to print out directions when needed. They really made it a pleasure to stay there, and compensated for any weaknesses in the accommodation itself.
So, to summarise, this is a well-located hotel, offering rather average accommodation, but with great staff. Stay there, but only if you get a good rate!
