Central location. Quiet. Good air conditioning and shower. Comfortable bed. Friendly and helpful service in pre-booking taxis, hire car, flight seats. Lack of drawer space.
Excellent location. Spacious bathroom with plenty of hot water. Good heating system - needed in the depths of winter! The suite does not have a comfortable chair - let alone a sofa - since there is no space for it. The balcony with 2 chairs can't be used during the winter. Therefore "duplex double" is a fairer description of room 4. No pictures or rugs. Furniture reminiscent of Ikea. Since this is a Residenza and not a hotel - so no facilities except access to the restaurant after 10am for breakfast - I think this accommodation is over-priced.
The location was excellent, right in the centre of the town. The cheap quality bed sagged in the centre, giving us an uncomfortable sleepless night. Only a single topsheet, no bedcover. There were no proper curtains so one could not keep out the street lights. Noisy aircon. No safe. The two spare pillows in the cupboard were dirty and lacked pillowcases. Likewise the duvet. No satellite tv or English programs. No lift (we were 3rd floor.) The room was dusty. Altogether an uncomfortable stay. Check in had to be at certain times only. Not poor service, just no service. The only breakfast offered was a drink and sweet cake. 2* hotel at 4* plus price.
Very warm welcome and very helpful staff. Superb location. The hotel does not have a reception area nor any in-hotel staff, and it is not possible to enter the hotel without a key for the front door. However, one has to go to a restaurant across the Piazza Erbe to register and get one's key etc., and there is no indication to that effect on the door of the hotel. Finding out about that on arrival could be quite difficult from someone who does not speak italian. A second 'problem' is that there is no phone or other means of communication with the outside world in the rooms. Should anything happen, I guess one would be in some difficulty...
Beautifully appointed room, and very comfortable; top class interior design The room is serviced only by the family restaurant opposite. They are charming and very attentive people, but it's not quite the same as having concierge/receptionist service etc
Position of hotel is central,near restuarants and lake. Close to major points of interest eg.ducale palace.Modern renovation with airconditioning. Stairs only
Detailed renovation and modernization of an old building. Located on the main piazza in town. A most colorful surrounding with many historical sights Not for the light of sleep - a very noisy piazza, even with windows shut
The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is very conveniently situated for sight-seeing, shopping and excellent restaurants. There is no elevator, and it is very noisy.
The historical position of the Residenza and its restaurant. Excellent view over the old Piazza Erbe.
Room was brilliant and beautiful and restaurant was fantastic. Location could not be better.
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
Relaxing atmosphere Expensive, no tea making facilities, charge for pool towels
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.
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!
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 internet connection was too slow for business on the day I had to use it, I gave up...
Helpful staff, convenient and picturesque location, cleanliness, excellent and fresh breakfast selection.
quiet relaxing environment friendly helpful staff no
KNOWING LANGUAGE, NICE OWNERS PARKING,
owners/staff were very friendly and caring situated on a major rail track (24hr noise from trains); beds and pillows are uncomfortable; shabby look of the room
Very clean, nice rooms, superior service and fantastic hospitality
It is a very poor hotel compared to others in the same place (Laga de Garda). Its is also very expensive compared to others with similar price. The hotel also smelled terrible.
very friendly owners That the description or views did not mention that thr hotel was situated right next to the train tracks & on registration everyone was given ear plugs!
