    The hotel is in a great location, close to everything. A special convenience is private parking. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and clean. The staff is very kind and helpful. The breakfast is very good and there are plenty of choices for sweet and salty dishes. Despite being in the center, it is pulled into a quiet street and is very comfortable to sleep. A special plus is a beautiful roof terrace with a beautiful view of the lake.

    No boiled eggs at breakfast. Somewhat small/narrow bathroom (204). Otherwise nothing to complain on.

    Location close to the sea even though a little far away from railway station etc. Friendly staff. Good value for the money.

    The hotel is located a short stroll to the centre of town. It has a lift so it was nice not to have to carry bags up 2 flights of stairs. The breakfast is good and varied. The staff are very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the gentleman who was on reception on the morning that we checked out when I left my jacket in our room.

    There wasn't a fridge in the room. It wouldn't hurt to provide small fridges so that a cold drink is always available. Especially in the hot weather.

    Location was good and the rooftop was a nice place to relax. The staff were very helpful.

    Stayed in room 120 and felt it my duty to report to management that we'd found a broken shower tap. I even took a photo to show them. The management then accused me of being heavy handed and breaking the tap. He said the maids check every room after guests check out and insisted I was to blame. He said they were very expensive taps. Having examined the tap I'm positive it had been broken for a long time and this was part of some scam/ con to get more money out of guests. The manager (guy in his 40's) started shouting at us so I started shouting 'policia' back. I felt this was a matter for the police. In the end we were only charged 90 euros for the room - which was more than the hotel should have received, based on the fact that bees/ wasps were ironed into the bed sheet, air conditioning didn't work correctly, and the general setup was below average. I would suggest people chose a different hotel. Lake Garda is not a cheap area in Italy but in hindsight we should have spent a little more money staying in a far nicer hotel. Booking.com, if you are reading my post, look at the previous posts from others too and please investigate this hotel!

    The rooms are very basic, nothing special. It's a solid 20-25 minute walk from the train station and I felt like there were closer hotels that I could have stayed at that may have been a little more unique for my stay.

    Really nice and helpful staff. Wifi was strong and the breakfast is very nice and a convenient start to your morning. Location is one block from the water and roof deck was nice to sit at night. They have a plethora of travel brochures but it's best to go to the information center in the main square to plan your full itinerary and get bus schedules, ferry information, etc.

    We had the room with direct road view, that's why we heard the noises. But it was bearable.

    Very nice hotel, сlose to the center, port and beach. Spacious room with enough comfortable bed and large light bathroom. The breakfast was very good (as for Italy). The hotel made a good impression.

    Really good staff, we felt welcome. The room was nice and of a reasonable size, clean, with a decent bathroom. The third floor gives access to a nice terrace with an amazing view of the lake. The Hotel itself is about 5 minutes walk from the lake and the town, really easy to find, with a convenient parking. When needed, the hotel staff called us a taxi. The breakfast was good and with quite a big choice of food, once again the staff was really friendly.
