the curtains in the rooms where ripped, the bathroom floor was dirty. you should also tell the clients when they book lake view, that there is a street inbetween and it is better book the side to the pool. the spa was very good, but on Sunday, there is now service, no candles lighted. the front office staff depends on the time of the day. the evening staff was very rude, the night receptionst nice and in the morning nice too. view street inbetween the lake and the hotel, bathroom floors, curtains,
comfortable room in a hotel away from the main tourist areas of lake garda. . Very isolated hotel (no restauarant in hotel) no bars or restaurants near by. If you dont have your own car transport to the most popular areas on the Lake is very diifficult. The hotel advertises a shuttle bus which only runs 3 times a day at times that suit the hotel and not the guests who may want to catch ferries on the Lake at the best times
Room clean, reception staff friendly and helpful. Services ok and the breakfast good. On site parking was an asset as it is located some distance from resturants. The bar staff were not attentive and non existent, we were completely ignored and left after waiting some 10 minutes for service. There was only 4 other patrons in the bar!!
Providing having a car the location is excellent to discover Lake Garda, Milan, Verona and others like Venice. nothing
pool very nice quite near road
Hotel was excellent - very clean, confortable, and super staff
The room was immaculately clean and we had a good sized balcony. The Reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly whenever we asked for any advice or directions. The hotel did not have a restaurant - only served breakfast. We found this a bit strange as there were no restaurants within easy walking distance. No tea/coffee facilities in bedroom which would have been appreciated.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel was quite isolated so had to travel everywhere by car or other transport.
location between sirmione and desenzano, swimming pool, terrace overseeing the lake, free parking , very helpful staff. internet too expensive (9 euros / day) , a little bit of noise coming from the road.
Everyone was friendly & helpful & this helped us relax as we had not been to Italy previously. No kettle in the room was my only bug bear
Relaxing atmosphere Expensive, no tea making facilities, charge for pool towels
quiet relaxing environment friendly helpful staff no
the internet connection was too slow for business on the day I had to use it, I gave up...
Friendly staff and good food
good modern hotel and in a central location for the lake and walking into the town beds are very hard and uncomfortable
Everything about this hotel is excellent. It is in a great location (only 5 mins from the main square in Desenzano), extremely clean, the staff were always very friendly and helpful, the pool area is very clean / quiet and relaxed, the room was spacious and had a great view from the balcony and the range of options on the breakfast menu was outstanding.
Great location close to center/restaurants, top service, great breakfast, very friendly, great parking facilities, very clean, nice pool. Rooms small, never enough toilet paper, noisy road in front (no problem in the rooms in the back)
The Villa Rosa is beautiful. We have stayed in many hotels in Lake Garda and this was by far our favourite. The staff are really friendly and helpful without exception. Breakfast very good.They have thought of everything and even have a lovely shower room next to the pool for late checkout and they provide a shower pack as well. Can't wait to go back. Well done to everyone at Villa Rosa!
Helpful staff, convenient and picturesque location, cleanliness, excellent and fresh breakfast selection.
Beautiful hotel right in front of the lake and a beach. It has a lovely terrace for breakfast and drinks in the evening, and very helpful staff. The hotel is a short walk from Desenzano centre - which is a vibrant place, with good bars and restaurants, and a very pretty port. Our balcony was supposed to look over the garden of the hotel, but we found that in fact it looked over the car park. This just meant we did not use the balcony - but the hotel was so nice otherwise it didn't really matter. The hotel is also on a main road, so it is not quite as peaceful as other hotels / other resorts on the lake might be - but it is not a particularly busy main road and still has idyllic views of the lake.
We liked the fresh design of an the hotel, and the view of the room. The 'fine cuisine' of the restaurant isn't that fine, quality not the best. We were served by very unfriendly waiters. In the bar of the hotel, same service than in the restaurant. It's a pity, because, that takes the charm of the hotel.
relax, enjoy, wellness
The hotel design is nice also the rooms are large and nice. Location is very good for Sermione and Desezano tours on Garda lake. Breakfast is great. Although we didn't have time for relax at the pool the pool looks great. Balcony was full of insects.
very quiet and peaceful hotel gives comfortable feeling the bar was very poor and was not any entertainment. there is not enough decoration
Nice design, comfort
helpfull staff. Situated next to a very busy road, which meant the pool and sun lounger area was not very relaxing. Hotel was new, and so very nearly there but little things effected our stay, there was no hotel information (time of breakfast, room sevices etc), bottom level of car park had no signs and entering the hotel from this level was still unfinshed. There as an additonal charge for use of the kitchen in the appartment which meant the fridge was switched off and no mini bar to keep drinks cool
Very friendly & helpful staff, very clean, large well appointed, very comfortable rooms & a nice pool.
Luxurious hotel: large apartment, balcony, swimming pool, quiet rooms. Friendly hotel staff. Transport problems to the Desenzano city railway station. You could have exact timetable of local buses. It was not even written at bus stop. There was no free transfer as promised on your internet website. Misunderstanding with local car rent: if client has to fill some documents before car reservation at your receptionist it should be said. We understood that first oral reservation a day before would be enough and next morning when a car arrive we should sign the contract. So we missed our expected rental car.
Modern comfortable hotel with large rooms. Excellent, friendly, helpful staff, good pool plenty of room. Good location, short drive to Sirmione or Densenzano, however you cannot see the lake because there is a road and trees in front of the hotel. Good value.
Fantastic room - spacious and well-appointed, and two bedrooms were perfect for our family. Really helpful, friendly receptionist. Great breakfast, family facilities and pool. The pool was quite cold
Fantastic apartment for a family of six. Air conditioning. Very clean and well maintained facilities. Near to a supermarket for drinks etc.We would come back again. Being charged to use the kitchen within the apartment (you should include it in the price).The children had many cuts on their feet and knees as the surface material of the pool was so rough. We used a box of plasters.
we had a very big room, 40m. the hotel has a pool, the stuff is very helpful, speaks english. breakfast was good.
Clean and spacious rooms, stylish The swimming pool not suitable for small children under 10 years, the surface is such that one easily gets wounds; the breakfast was limited in variety and some items were finished.
We stayed here for a week from 11 th August 2010. It was lovely. Every member of staff were very pleasant and obliging even with young children. The room was spacious and clean with maid service every day.As we booked a family room, the second bed was a sofa bed and I have to say, it was very uncomfortable and noisy. The breakfast was very good with a variety of hot and cold choices. Our kids loved the pool which was spotless and safe. Location is about 15 mins drive from the pretty town of Sirmione. I would definately recommend a car to appreciate the area, especially as the weather can be changeable. We toured the whole lake which is definately worth doing. I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again
Spacious apartments, great for families, easy car access, good location, nice swimmingpool, childfriendly. Pity the developers gone cheap on finishings, all furnishings feel rickety. Noisy location by road. If you want to use tiny kitchen (where microwave and fridge are) you have to pay Euro 25 extra...
The staff and the location The breakfast which was poor and the management who were rude
good service, friendly staff with addition of charges for baby cot and breakfast total cost was quite high but we do realise lake garda is a relatively expensive area
Beautiful location, Hotel was right on the waterfront and serviced by great staff.
Helpful and friendly staff, warm, clean rooms, good variety of food at breakfast good location
Waterfront location, good free parking, large choice of restaurants near by Outside noise Saturday night.
position and facilities
The hotel was well kept and had charm, central location and helpful staff. Coffee was not good, which you would expect being in Italy.Breakfast could be better.
The staff at the hotel were absolutely fabulous - the guys on the reception were particularly great.
very near to the center car park is not according to the standerd
I just wanted to break my journey up into the mountains. This hotel was perfect, brand new, clean. Wish I could have tried out the gym/pool but had to push on to Madonna Di Campiglio. Great Hotel. If I am here on business i will definitely stay here. No
Just off the highway Brescia Est. Friendly staff. Free parking. Satellite TV should be there. No english speaking channels.
staff were very nice. evening food very good hotel needs a spa/ relax swiming area etc. the breakfast was the same u need to change. and also sky film etc.
design and staff just the restaurant hours.
It was very clean and nice design Very poor on facilities
Golf was great, nice courses The selection of the food in the main restaurant was rather poor, and only the typical Italian dihes like Spaghetti and Lasagna were really good.
Ambiente Explanations only in Italian available, arriving at allmost midnight they needed about 35 minutes to bring the luggage to the room
Restaurant very expensive, facilities did not warrant a five star rating
it was quite familiar and the view to lake Garda is great. the room to the streetside are to loud because of the traffic and the tripple rooms are nerrow
Kindness of the staff, big room with balcony, position of the hotel, lot of vegetation surrounding the hotel building Small bathroom
the location is good and nice, quite as well, on the lake, private car parking the furniture is old, u have to take the luggage your self to the room, the breakfast is not variable, the wifi signal was not reaching my room, air condition is not excellent.
Well designed hotel. A beautiful terrace with the lake view. Well maintained garden. Small but nice pool. Parking. Good location from which you can reach all interesting places on the lake. No dinner is served at the hotel and there is no restaurant in the walking distance area. The hotel restaurant is only for special events. It was a wedding party just below our room and it was quite noisy. There were not enough AC adapters for mobile phones and laptops.
It has a very nice lake-view from some rooms. The staff is very kind. The breakfast was very good. WLAN Internet acces works only in the lobby and NOT in the room. :-( This was not mentioned in the hotel description.
Excellent hotel. Staff were lovely, food great and it was extremely clean and easy to find. Great position on the Lake with fabulous views. Best hotel in the area! We loved it.
location by the Garda see the vreal iew of the room is not relevat with the picture on web site, dirty windows, view can be to the street side
The location is perfect, on the lake and only about 200 metres from the town, and only E8 in a taxi from the train station. The town of Desenzano is very Italian, not many tourists. It was perfect for us. The view from our room of the lake was breathtaking. Breakfast was excellent, the staff were extremely accomodating. The swimming pool is cold but still nice! The internet is free and you can use it whenever you like. We loved this hotel and didn't want to leave!
Beautiful location next to the lake with very friendly and helpful staff. Great pool and well kept hotel and rooms. Very good value for money and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to my friends.
The location of the hotel was excellent with comfortable rooms and very good friendly and helpful staff Breakfast could be better and parking was difficult on some nights
great location, and friendly staff, small hotel with personality.
The hotel was really great. We stayed there shortly for business reason, but the staff was really nice and freaindly, the breakfast good and international, the rooms with the view to the Lake are really perfect. The room was clean and tidy. This is definately one of my favorite hotels. Looking forward to come back to Lago di Garda...
the rooms were very clean and fairly recently renovated, the staff was friendly and helpful there was no english tea :(
Iloved the location.Our room overlooked the lake with mountains in the background.Just fabulous! The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. Nothing was a bother to them. There was nothing I disliked.
The site - right next to Lake Garda. Fabulous bar and seating area with panoramic view of the lake. The manager and family sat and had their dinner at the bar seating area whilst the guests were having drinks. There is no restaurant for evening meals or snacks for guests.
Location on Lake Garda was stunning. Hotel gardens were lovely and led down to the lake shore. The view of the lake with the mountains in the background was spectacular, and to have a balcony was an added luxury and worth the extra cost. Staff were terrific and so helpful.Desenzano is a lovely area and worth visiting. Rooms were spotless and well looked after. Breakfast could have been better. Bacon and eggs provided each morning, but was always cold, not even cool, but cold. Fresh fruit was provided but not the best, days old.The rest was adequate, plenty of cheese and ham, and toast was available which made up for everything. and staff did their best to look after everyone.Have had better and worse.
the room was clean, nice bathroom. very good breakfast what is not common in italy.free parking, walking distance to the center with all the restaurants and bars. free parking off season personaly i dont like carpets in bedrooms although it looked clean. need better satelite television.
The staff were excellent and had a reasonably good understanding of English. Their recommendations of were to eat and go were also very good. The weather was bad one day, but no fault of hotel, they even had umbrellas (no charge) you could use to go out.
This is our second visit and the hotel is modern and remains to a high standard. We think this should be 4 star. Ideal for anybody who wants to stay at Desenzano.
The staff were very friendly & helpful. Hotel should be a four star. Very central, and fantastic hotel. HIghly recommend this hotel. Pool was also excellent. Everything was perfect. no complaints.
Excellent location and good quality rooms and public areas Yes the hotel pool was just being constructed and we were not informed of this. The builders started work at 8am and we obviously did not have the use of the pool which we had particularly wanted. Very disappointed that we had not been informed of the construction work because under the circumstances we would have booked a different hotel
beautifully refurbished hotel with pleasant view and excellent location for transport and boat trips on the lake
The hotel is very modern and clean. It is a good size, not too big nor too small. It is well positioned for easy access to harbour and restaurants and train station. Although on a main road, it is set back and was very quiet at night. Staff were very friendly. Great value for money. Rooms were very comfortable.
Location, rooms and staff Paying for internet
Clean, modern spacious rooms, nice pool and bar area. very good all round. Pool wasn't heated, so was a bit chilly by early September!
the staff at the rececption was very friendly and kind. The rooms are new and with a lot of light, big and comfortable. Walking distance from the city center
It was more than expected.
The relaxing ambiance, the friendliness and hospitality of Maria, grounds and villa are well kept and very clean. Entrance well secured. Bedlights too dark (for reading) in the double room.
location, the room is nice and clean.
The house was really pretty and very centrical. Nice room, nothing to envy to a luxury hotel and very quite as well. The personal are very friendly and speak English too, in ovrall a very pleasant experience. The swimming pool was empty but it was october so it is normal
The hotel was very clean, the room was big and comfortable. The lady that owns it was very very nice and speaks good enough english. You get a set of keys so you can come and go as you please. The location is great - really close to the train station and also to the center of town and the boats.
the staff were so friendly and willing to help.service was excellent.views were magnificent.id definitely go back.its so close to everything and the location is ideal.its my favourite place we loved everything
Position of the hote in the center of the town right next t the lake was great, staff were helpful and firendly and the breakfast was good. The hotel restuarant was also very good.
Excellent lakeside location with great views. Helpful and informative staff. Good variety at breakfast.
Overlooking the lake or old harbour. Very nice location. Nice hotel. Parking is only available at a nearby public parking. Internet costs 4 EUR per hour, and connection was very bad. Should be included in this pricerange, and of better quality.
marvelous views of the Lake garda. balconey is great. Proximity to the old harbor and center of town.
Nice breakfast, excellent, central location. Would recommend future visitors to invest into room with balcony (splendid view over the lake). Shower facilities a bit basic (shower curtain). Very slow lift.
Friendly staff, nice breakfast, perfect location (beside town centre, about 150metres from ferry terminal, beside bus stop, and 10minutes walk from train station).
Hotel Vittorio is superbly centrally placed to enjoy the lake & harbour views. Our lake view room had been updated recently. The breakfast that the hotel offered was substantial & tasty. Desenzano is a lovely resort with enough restaurants & shops to easily sustain a weeks stay. Whilst our lake view room had been recently updated to a nice standard the hotel's corridors & public areas are overdue a cosmetic upgrade. The advertised satelitte TV was disappointing for English viewers in that there were 3 news channels available.
Very friendly hotel, very clean, excellent sea front views, good breakfast All good
Good location for exploring the towns around Lake Garda. Near town centre and ferries. Reception staff friendly and helpful. Parking on site.
Close to train station and very quiet! Great place to relax!
Good hotel, everything is ok. A little bit far from the city center and beach.
The location of this Hotel was excellent for our needs as we wanted to travel to nearby towns. Train station was very close and car hire shop very close. The swimming pool is placed in the main entrance to the hotel however I did not use it but if I was using this I would prefer a little more privacy. Would be better placed at the back of the building or alternatively fenced off.
Quality hotel, Very friendly staff, good location for visiting the lake region, would visit again. Beds not comfortable(hard),Breakfast menu could be more varied.
Breakfast was awful, bread, cheese and ham? No iron, not even when requested told its not allowed for safety reasons? Are we not adults?
Very friendly staff !
Staff most helpful. Breakfeast very poor - no fresh fruit, nothing warm to eat. Not good at all considering the price and in comparison with other hotels in Europe.
Freindly staff, extremely helpful and clean Noisy plumbing in the morning,unexciting breakfast options
Comfortable and efficient. Close to centre of town. Staff helpful.
There was nothing special about this hotel that made it memorable. Staff were very friendly is about the best thing I can say about the hotel. Rooms were also quiet. Room was quite small. Wireless internet connection did not work. Pool area was noisy and not very relaxing. Food was expensive. If underground car park was full then there was very limited parking around hotel.
High standard furnishings and very clean. Very friendly and helpful staff.Nicely situated, pleasant grounds.
The staff were friendly and helpful, The pool was clean and so in general was the hotel. Mainly frequented by couples, though a few family rooms in the garden annex The rooms are a bit dated and the mattresses need to be changed as they were very saggy.
Staff were very friendly and helpful I didn,t realise that the family rooms had bunk beds in them.
hotel staff were very helpful and polite.The rooms were excellent.The location was brilliant only a short stroll to the lake.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly and the pool was lovely. Breakfast was excellent. Rather noisy outside with the busy road but quiet in the room with the excellent double glazing.
Wonderful food, friendly and helpful staff. The room was lovely - clean and well maintained. The view of the building site :) but then, I wasn't there for a holiday, and the workers weren't overly noisy, or early starting/late finishing. The only other suggestion I'd make is to have tea/coffee facilities in the room.
Front and back green and well designed gardens. Pool. Spaciousness of hotel. Attention to detail in bedroom and bathroom. Proximity of town center and bus stop if needed.
Lovely pool and solarium. Very friendly and helpful staff Bathrooms need updated. Our sink was cracked.
The hotel has beautiful garden which from was own entrance to our familyroom. The room was big enough for 4 persons. The pool and the pool area with beach chairs were lovely. Take into consideration, that the pool is so deep, that children without ability to swim can not swim without help of parent. Breakfast was ok. The location of hotel was brilliant. The parking area was good. Recommend. Our refrigerator (liquor cabinet) was off, when we arrived - evidently by accident. It taked over a day that we could storage cool drinks and snacks for children. Also in the bathroom some of the "beauty care" boxes were empty when we arrived.
Location at the lake, no problem parking. Good restourants in the area Location + partking
Great hotel with friendly staff and excellent location
The view from pur room to the lake. The size of the room and the free wi fi.
Location, right on lake shore, close to port for lake boats and busses and a 15 min walk to station, but best was the first day there was a cyclone, trees coming down, hotel windows breaking, general chaos, but the staff remained calm, polite and attentive - well done! Nothing, it was great.
Very friendly staff, room was clean, breakfast was fine, swimming pool was fine the room was slightly small-sized
The staff were very helpful, they lent me a road map to help me get around, they also let us watch the tv in the library after we had checked out, and the cappuccino is one of the best I have ever had. There were a lot of spiders, both in the room and on the balcony. We stayed in another 4 star hotel in Spain immediately before this one, and there was quite a big difference. I think Estee should probably be a 3 star hotel, as the rooms were small for the price, there was no internet connection, no bath tub, and some dilapidated furniture.
Location Lack of aircon in the rooms. Not sure it rates being listed as a 4* hotel.
Hotel just refurbished beautifully and was very clean. As a small hotel the staff were very helpful. We would recommend it highly The internet connection was very weak, often went down.
Hotel very central and staff very friendly and helpful. View of the lake from restaurant fantastic Restaurant was closed for evening meals.
After my insisting on changing room due to very old noicy air ventilator in the toilet, they found another room. Breakfest was good. Vieu on the lake during breakfest is relaxing. Rooms need maintanance and renewal. The price was too high for out of season. In rest of nights we payed lower price.
it was there very peacefull en calm and had a beautifull garden with a great swimming pool the staff was not fiendly
The swimming pool, the arranged event on Saturday evening with a singer and dances, the surroundings and the service; the breakfast was very tasty and diversified; quiet & relaxed atmosphere;
It was very relaxing and the pool was fantastic. The staff were friendly and we felt very much at home.
Nice premises, nice staff, quietness -
Great pools within beautiful and spacy garden. Nice rooms. Resonnably quit hotel. Own free parking, restaurant, Wellness. Good breakfast.
Clean good value hotel with good swimming pool facilities. Breakfast was a disappointment.
Most admin staff very friendly - Breakfasts were fine. Pool areas and grounds were the best part. They reserved quiet room with Balcony and quite good view, as we requested. Arri for evening meal about 8.30 ( 22 E each) Maybe was late for them, they served us our steak with small amount of potatoe, went to get veg etc and there wasn't any left. Had to ask for cheese for afters as this wasn't on buffet either. Shld have everything, if still serving dinner. Room decor poor - was not as clean as should be - under bed was very dirty - do not expect to be cleaned under bed evryday at all, but on first day of stay, it should be clean! Decor needs doing (Rm 215 Didn't complain as we were out most of days) Hotel situ - should be made bit clear how near (within walking dist) it is to restaurant/bars etc. Not much within walking distance and although you can get to Lakeside, there isn't much to do there in evenings.
The room and conference facilities were good and convenient for me, since I did not have to travel. Food was good but not exceptional. I also liked that I could rent a laptop and internet connection for 5€ for the whole weekend. Front desk staff was very helpful. I can't think of anything.
proximity to conference center.
Most important: good WiFi connection for cheap price. Big rooms - friendly staff - free parking - "Familia" shopping center right next door - 200mtr from fiera. But still quiet rooms. I used their (nice) sauna, but was not informed I would be charged (for € 8,-)
The wather Staff had no clue about anything related to the village or travel arrangements within the village. The hotel did not even have a map of the village, I got one in a drug store!!!
Everything was as described - staff very helpful
nothing specific noise childern running around making a noise not once or twice but numerouse times, so much so that i had to complain twice!!!
1) Just a couple of comments, the room had an extra bunk bed, so wasn't much spcae available. 2) B/fast room, we were invited to stay in the reception area eating on a small round table with no table cloth, simply becasue they had a bike racing team that was given priority to the main room. Totally unacceptable!
Good staff, cheap wirelles (5 Eur/day), big room breakfast can be better
I liked your polite staff, many fruits on breakfast and good location near the beach. Swimming pool is smaller then it seems on photo.
Everything. Location, facilities, staff, everything. The best European three star we've ever stayed in. we will return to this hotel in the future.
Staff receiving us was friendly and showed experience and good language skills loacition as we travelled by triain, needed taxi.
The staff were very helpful and it was very clean. The pool didn't seem to be open, but it was slightly out of season.
Nice environment, peaceful and quiet, free garage, super location (shortest way to beach of lake Garda), nice balkony, good breakfast (choice of fruits was very nice!!!) - everything was very good!!! Thank you! no, everything was OK
friendly atmosphere nice and relaxing and pleasant location near village a lack of drawer space in room-also coat hangers.
an excellent hotel in all respects
This hotel was a very acceptable place for an overnight stay. I particularly liked being able to go up on the roof and enjoy the autumn sunshine and the views of the lake, A peaceful and unfussy hotel for a September visitor Not really. Its restaurant is probably more geared for the holidaymaker, offering simple food at designated times (e.g 7.30pm to 8.30pm in the evening). My business colleague and I chose to eat out in Desenzano which has many eating places and which is a reasonably pleasant 20 minute walk along a treelined road
Nice hotell with good premisis. The total impression of the stay went down as the people in the reseption did not make you feel very welcome. we also had to wait for nearly an hour to get our room (was not available before 3 o clock)
Quiet, comfortable and clean room. convienient location and reasonably priced.
