we recently had a seven night stay at this hotel with my wife and three children 12, 13, and 15yrs. We stayed in their three bedroom apartment The hotel is in a great position for a family holiday on Lake Garda. We found the hotel to be very well run, great breakfast and very good staff, very nice pool area, underground car parking. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Just off the square near lots of restaurants & a 5 min walk to the ferry boats around the lake. There are 3 different restaurants all good especially the courtyard restaurant, there are tables on the cobbled street, it's very quaint & quirky. Our room overlooked the street which could be a little noisy but the shutters kept this to a minimum, there was a huge round bed & jacuzzi bath in the room, the only downside was the shower/ bathroom was small.
Lovely, quiet, small hotel which has good transport links to get out and about, both on the lake and by train. Room was comfortable (bed great level of firmness for us) and good size. We went for a suite, found it unusual that the other room had 2 single beds rather than a sofa bed which is what we are used to. Tap started leaking and was repaired very quickly. Good shower. Walk to town is about half hour, buses every hour for 1 Euro (bargain!), also to Sirmione which was more expensive but sometimes worked better for boat times.

Stayed here for 5 nights in July with my husband and 2 children (11 and 13) in a family room (No. 49). Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel very clean and well cared for. Lovely gardens, especially the quiet rear garden with the lemon trees and vegetables/grapes being grown. Front garden contains the larger pool and although well landscaped is slightly noisy due to the main road, however that did not stop us from relaxing in and by the pool at any time as the road isn't that busy. Only had breakfast in the hotel but it was well presented, plentiful with a large selection of breads, fruit, meat, cheeses and pastries to choose from. Our room was at the back of the hotel - exceptionally quiet area which was great. The only slight issue was the hair drier - not very powerful but to be honest it was so hot I just let my hair dry naturally for a change. All in all we loved our stay here and would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to friends and family - in fact I already have.

Desenzano is one of the liveliest and most cosmopolitan lake resorts. Its pretty little palm-fringed harbour is lined with restaurants and cafes, and the narrow streets off the attractive arcaded piazza are filled with fashionable shops. The weekly market is very popular. Shingle beaches lie to either side of town and Gardaland, Italy’s biggest and most popular theme park, is only 20 kilometres away.
