super views over the lake. Friendly staff. The best palma ham in the world. It was draped like a cloud of thin sheets succulent flavoursome over fresh chilled melon. Exquisite balance. No
We had a wonderful time at this hotel and would definately recommend staying there. The location was wonderful beautiful views and close to the town which provided an abundance of bars and restaurants as well as a ferry service to other locations. The hotel room was spacious and staff very friendly and helpful, particularly Daniel who arranged taxi's for us and gave valuable local information. The breakfast was very nice, lovely cornettos! The swimming pool was large and clean and not over chlorinated. It was also very quiet and most times we had the whole pool to ourselves! I would also recommend hiring a speed boat from salo to tour the lake, hotel staff also helped with this making the call and translating the necessary info! I wish I was back there right now!!!
The location of the hotel is superb. Our spacious room had a splendid view over the lake. The staff were friendly and efficient. The restaurant maintained a high standard. On the minus side: the air-conditioning in our room was barely adequate, the breakfast buffet could be more ambitious, and too many guests ignored the pool rules posted for the benefit of all in five languages. Value for money? Not really.
The swimming pool and sunbathing area is great. The location fantastic - right on the lake. Everything was very clean. Buffet breakfast was gorgeous food. Bathrooms were excellent, baths and showers. Some of the staff were surly and unhelpful, especially serving/clearing breakfast. The minute 10am arrived they were clattering around you whilst you were finishing your breakfast. It is a little old fashioned, the decor from the 70s/80s. No spa facilities are included in the price of the room. The breakfast is not a hot buffet. The in room bar only had two beers in it.
The position of the hotel and the view from our room balcony Hotel food was poor
Rooms were big with beautiful view and were cleaned professionally on a daily basis. The general hotel staff are very warm and helpful. It is a non smoking environment which was fantastic. The breakfasts are poor, but mostly the breakfast waiters are rude and unprofessional. It may sound petty, but does have an affect on your stay!
Location of the hotel, size of the room and terasse and view. Friendly staff especially in reception. Since we have travelled with baby and stroller we were expecting to takea stroller to our room. It did not fit to elevator since they are too small. Some other families had same problem. Breakfast is really basic for 4* hotel, no hot food and variety is very small - cheese, hamd, bread, fruits, jogurt and corNflakes. Parking is also unsuficient only 11 spaces for large hotel and website advertize free parking in front of the hotel. If you came late to the hotel you had to look for parkings faraway or pay 10 euro a day in paid parking near by.
Excellent position on Lake Garda gives spectacular views in restful atmosphere. Easy access to town and ferries. Friendly attentive staff. No
large simply furnished room with sliding doors onto spacious balcony with beautiful view good location inability to use the pool before breakfast
Magnificent View over lake from balcony Altho' the hotel was nowhere near full, bookings were still required for dinner. Bar closed early (if it was ever open).
The position of the Hotel - It's cleanliness particularly it's bathrooms and the charming village of Salo Unfortunately our visits were during the low season and so most service facilities were unavailable.
Location in beautiful surrondings at Lago Di Garda
location and peaceful atmosphere and friendliness of the staff trying to find it by car on arrival, the secure parking being a good 5-10 minute walk from hotel, the rooms on the first floor opened on to a terrace used by other residents
Hotel of good standard in fantastic location and very close to ferry port. Staff all genuinely friendly and helpful, Loved having breakfast in open terrace restaurant overlooking the lake to start each day. Was pleasantly surprised that sunloungers always available in small upper terrace over peak summer dates. Free use of quality city bikes a bonus we enjoyed but need to be fit for exploration out of town!
very good location, room with a great view!
Ideal location for enjoying the town of Salo and for exploring Lake Garda. The staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel food is good but I would not recommend a package including dinner because there are so many excellent and characterful restaurants close by that shoulld not be missed.
Nice views of the lakeside, very friendly staff, food ok. Perfect location as a base for touring Lake Guarda
Nice quad room on the water with view, excellent staff and very clean room. Very good breakfast provided. Many smaller rooms with balcony facing the water. Small wndow limited view of water (our reason for staying here); difficult to find the hotel (despite maps and MapQuest directions);
Nice location, friendly staff
The situation of the hotel at the lakeside and close to the boat departures was good also the southerly facing aspect of the hotel which was clean and with good service. No I can't think of any problems, although the parking is not very close..
The "Al la Carte" resteurant is a must, superb food the staff are fantastic and the location is hard to beat. The hotel is "old world charm" rather than a modern. Would recomend the Lake Veiw rooms for the additional cost. Travel around the lake very easy with the ferry just outside.
Everything was first class
i liked everything , especially the location directly at the lake , it gives a wonderful feeling the only negative thing is the heavy traffic on the road alongside of the hotel , although you can not hear it in the hotel
Clean and bright bedrooms and common areas. Friendly staff. Good food. Helpful staff. Location good as base for visiting other areas of Lake Garda.
The hotel gave us an ideal location to celebrate our wedding anniversary; centrally placed and offering good quality services.
A large hotel, ideal for older guests. Excellent staff, service, location.
Friendly Service Long distances to walk from room to reception
Fantastic position right on lake Prices of tea/coffee and drinks generally
Location to the Lake N/A
Lake view from large balcony. Quite a quiet area but shops and cafes in close proximity. Easy access to local ferry system.
Excellent hotel and would go back.
size of rooms & position Very dated decor, breakfast, staff, limited parking facility & lobby
Beautiful setting, great hotel and staff. Unbelievable views over the lake from the balcony. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The food was plentiful and a great choice to suit all requirements. Limited parking although not a problem during my stay.
Nice view on the Lake Garda. Hotel occupies historical building but well renovated and equipped with all necessary facilities for relax and spa. Spacious double room with lake view also has a balcony. Good bar service. Wi-Fi is not free of charge. There is a requirement to book a parking place in advance but hotel can't guarantee the fulfillment of own obligations (as it was in our case).
no specific positive comments is more a 3 star hotel; poor breakfast (payable extra items like cooking egg etc + low quality + every day the same); payabel parking of 10€ a day (not mentioned before); price/quality not in line
fabulous lakeside setting, excellent service within hotel, great pool area for chilled relaxation. Outside the hotel ther are several bars and resturants within 5 min walk with great variety of choice.
Proximity to lake,room had beautiful view and large terrace. Staff very helpful and made you feel at home. Sat on the upper terracwe drinking Champagne and strawberries and felt like film stars. We are already trying to plan our next visit, but dont want to spoil ourselves as this is a very special place.
the location was excellent with fantastic views over the lake and close to all the local restaurants. the pool and garden were lovely.its a great place for a quiet and relaxing holiday. we thought the breakfast was very poor. the same menu every day. also if you wanted fried eggs or freshly squeezed juices you had to pay E 4.00 for them.
Nice, peaceful place. Pool side deal for families with kids, romantic evenings with music by the pool ideal for couples. The lake just in front of the hotel.
Excellent service, great food, brilliant view, superb room None
Very relaxing surroundings and made feel welcome by staff... I felt the lunch and dinner menus could have been changed, after 4 days it is quite repetative
Peaceful surroundings and very relaxing
The restaurant is great, very nice food, the service of everyone in the Hotel was very good. nice view and nice decoration also. I will prefer a softer bed.
Total relaxation in a beautiful setting. Excellent menu and very friendly and professional staff. I must return!
Very friendly staff, lovely small hotel. Excellent restaurant. Will come again.
The hotel was in the most beautiful setting - because there were only 18 rooms the number of guests was low. The staff were very pleasant and efficient Rather limited lunch menu
Everything! Very clean,lovely luxurious touches...very comfortable beds, excellent food and presentation...Just lovely and romantic! I am amazed we found this little gem and we will be back!
The staff were unfailing in their attention and in particular we liked the sauna facility which was first rate. In their effort to present their food as haute cuisine the portions were often too small for the average appetite.
Wow Prices reasonable for food & wine apart from 2 Gin & Tonics costing 24€ admitedly they were large which we did not ask for, but felt that was still too expensive when you could get a bottle of wine for 14€
Big room with nice furniture,nice view over the lake,bathroom small but clean with everything you need including a hairdryer and soap,big window in the bath that was very nice. Breakfast was ok,not to much but enough. Tv to small with 5 chanels only,no free parking available on sight.
Friendly staff and great location. No baths in the bathrooms!
The meals presented by the hotel were great. It is a well managed family run hotel.
perfect view, slow service at dinner,carpet in room grubby,
Localization is great. 5m from the edge of the Garda Lake Very loud street in front of the hotel. It was rather impossible to sleep from 5am - every day. Mould on the walls in bathroom. Breakfast without any vegetables,and every day the same menu.
Had a fantastic Holiday, Hotel was great & a brilliant location, Hotel restaurant & all others on the front were great & very well priced, would definately recommend
the situation by the lake, the kindness of the receptionists
All in all the appearance of the hotel and the rooms is rather shabby, and considering this, the price is rather high. Hence, it is not really good value for money.
good base to travel from. nice staff a bit shaby and no place for car parking. tv and hair dryer did not work. shower leaked
great room and hotel location
high service level, nice atmosphere,
Firstly, the staff, who were helpful, polite, informative,and responsive.Secondly, the thoughtful little touches, like scented candles, sweets, and a teddy-bear at turn-down time in the evening.Thirdly, the immaculate cleanliness of the whole place.Fourthly, free and secure parking. Finally, the superb position right on the lakeside and promenade. We would have liked a wider choice at breakfast - toast, eggs, crispy bacon, for example.
I had a perfect stay in the hotel. Food was exquisite. Location directly at Lake Garda also with a perfect view from the balcony of my upgraded room.
Nice friedly staff , good location very clean room
Friendly staff, cleanliness, value for money. I was on my own taking time out to write so the quietness was good and I felt safe. All my requirements were met
The location of the hotel was great. The 100km restaurant menu was great & the staff were very helpful. 24hour free internet access in the lobby was a great help.
Nice location and friendly staff
The room was bording - there was'nt any dekoration.
location of the hotel and the beautiful bedroom, staff were very friendly too the breakfast was poor and they ran out of some of the items also the service was slow
The location of the hotel is perfect - having breakfast on the terrace with the water lapping the boardwalk a few feet away was idyllic. Being able to meander along the lake shore walk at any time of the day or night without having to worry about driving or parking was a treat in itself. The are many restaurants to choose from within 5 minutes stroll & the town of Salo itself is beautiful. Loved the room!!!
The hotel is situated in a beautiful art nouveau building just outside the old town of Saló. The view over lake Garda is great, so are the deck chairs and the pool. The staff is fantastic - they'll bend backwards to help you with anything! This seems to be a family run hotel, where the family are perfectionists. A not too expensive luxury if you're stayin in the smaller, more modern rooms. I love it!
Lake views, good staff to residents ratio, setting, swimming pool and breakfast terrace. No nothing
This is the most wonderful hotel. The staff was amazing, the property amazing, the restaurant superb. Fabulous breakfast. I can't say enough positive things about it lest I fear there will never be room available again.
The atmosphere was warm and welcoming, building beautiful, service excellent. Ideal for a relaxing romantic break No
Hotel is very comfortable in a nice oldfashioned way with excellent service from the staff. An excellent hotel to relax in.
really nice staff, beautiful architecture main road too close, no balconies, interiors bit old
The hotel staff was exemplary. The terrace was very romantic both breakfast and dinner. Taking a drink by the pool was delightful. The room was a little outdated. It seemed everything had not been revisited since the 70's.
The beautiful hotel building. On site car park. The friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful staff they could not have been better. Excellent quality of the food. The well maintained garden. The close proximety (5 mins walk) of restaurants and shops. Ten minutes walk to the ferry linking Salo to all the other towns on the lake. The noise from the road whilst relaxing/sunbathing in the garden. There is only a hedge and pavement between the road and lawn with sun beds. Evening meals are a bit pricey.
The hotel is well placed on the edge of old Salo town and is an easy stroll to the nearby restaurants and shops.
service and the stuff gentle too small room
The location, the restaurant, the pool. The barmann was very arrogant and rude with the clients. Bevause fo thaht I would not recommend that place. It is a shame because everybody else were very nice and pleasant.
Location Recommended a ferry that wasn't running and a restaurant that was closed for the winter, they should have known better
hotel beautiful and staff created lovely athmosphere..food excellent and lovely setting thought the evening menu could benefit from a little more variety but quality and service excellent
The location is excellent and the hotel staff were very helpful and attentive. The pool was lovely and to be able to swim in lake garda from the hotel was also great. Our room was nice with a good view of the Lake from the balcony. It was just a short walk to the nearest town which was nice in the evening.
I liked the staff atention and the excelent food. No.
The location was great, pool was nice and room had a great view
The views from the lobby area out to Lake Garda; the garden setting that opened from the lobby; the excellent breakfast; the attentive staff. My massage was disappointing. Cold room, no candles or heated massage table, too much bright light; no soothing music. Massage itself was too light. We must do it differently in the US.
Proximity and access to Lake Garda
Wonderful staff, great views of the lake. Easy access to boats to go up and down lake.
It was a great location. Easy walk in to Gardone for lovely water front, good restaurants (especially set back from lakeside) and ferry service. Friendly staff and delicious breakfast right next to the lake was a great start to the day. Surprising to have no tea / coffee in room but room service was very quick
Relaxed surroundings Location hard to find,a little too far from the center.
Friendly staff and good restaurant
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Nice, cleen and well equiped family run hotel few hundred meters above Lago di Garda with charming view of the lake. Hotel is very near town of Salo and half hour drive from venezia-milano A4 motorway. Some rooms could be noisy because of nearby roads.
The view, easy to find, not in the centre of town but two minutes fron town, parking food was good but basic. Breakfast "buffet" poor. Coffee from a machine except for one morning
staff was friendly, food was excellent
The cosyness of the hotel and the friendly personnel. Perhaps some people do not like the situation outside the town. It should be clearly indicated.
We enjoyed our room and the facilities. Our daughter liked the swings and small slide as well as the pool. Dinner and breakfast were delicious. We really could not see Lago Garda. Perhaps the top floors could but not from the ground.
Nice hotel with polite and educated staff. Quiet place for relaxing with beautiful view. Romantic atmosphere. Beautiful operetta night and nice restaurant. Price. More comforts were needed (SPA etc). The photo was not corresponding to the room that was given to us. Every morning outside of our suite was an annoying noise from the cuisine of the restaurant.
great swimming-pool and scenery.
The interior style, the staff and the location were all excellent, but without hesitation the restaurant food and service, were exemplary. Send the rest of the world's service industry's staff there for training! Perhaps a double bedroom should have a double bed and not just two singles pushed together [and inefficiently held there] - but then as I was on honeymoonmaybe I am being a little picky. Oh....
The hotel was a perfect place to stay on a honeymoon with attentive staff, beautiful interiors and an incredible terrace with views over the Lake. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Its a 20 minute walk to the Lake garda boats but the extra seclusion does provide a far more personal experience.
We went for our honeymoon so it felt like we were spoiling ourselves - luxurious, awesome views, wonderful food and drinks. Most of the staff were fantastic. We felt one or two of the restaurant staff were not as attentive as they should be.
The setting and gardens. The service and very helpful, friendly staff. The restaurant. We had a wonderful stay. We thought our room was a little small for the price and it was crowded with 2 large suitcases. There was no lift to our floor. Is this consistent with a 5-star hotel?
The location and view The size of the room and the bathroom
attention to detail and beauty of the biulding and surroundings gardens
Very nice terrace overlooking the lake, excellent meals at the restaurant, very friendly and helpfull staff poor Internet connection with charges
The hotel owner (Maoro) was very helpful, location of the hotel was excellent, room were cleaned on daily basis and the breakfast was also very nice. Overall, we were very surprised by the high standard of the hotel- definitely worth every penny! Would stay again. no
Fabulous location with only minutes to walk to the shops, restaurants and water. . Parking was a bit difficult. It was case of parking down the street and waking back, then going and moving the car again to the car park which was not very close by. A bit of a task when there were 6 of us!
Good location. It has a very good breakfast service and very friendly and helpful staff.
The manager was very helpful, the location was excellent, breakfast was generous, it felt very secure, clean and modern. It was expensive and lacking in character. Our room suffered from traffic noise in the morning.
Central location and parking facilities for motorcycles air conditioning would have been an added bonus in the heat of 40 degrees
The Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was good. Location - in the center of Salo In our room there was no Aircondition - but at the days we stayed there was no need for Aircondition. A fan was a the room but was not used
Situation, good breakfast. Old premises.
Old, but nice hotel with helpful staff in the middle of town. We enjoyed our stay.
The hotel was right in the town of Salo which was great. The room was small but clean. The breakfast was fantastic and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.
Position in the town; kind staff; very acceptable price; peace at night
Roberto and his wife were truly outstanding hosts and we really felt "at home", so to speak. After a few days, the walk to the hotel parking lot for our car felt quite long
Great position None
Fantastic staff!! Beautiful view. The room was very clean but a little bit old fashioned. But the view was so amazing who really wants to look at the room.
The staff were very welcoming and helpful, speaking many languages according to their guests. Great location and the added bonus of covered secure parking - which is very rare on the italian lakes
2 Comments. Owner, Filippo Bassetti & wife, Roberta, couldn't have been nicer, or more accomodating in every way. This being late October, & learning we would drive the next morning to Munich,...Filippo immediately and totally voluntarily got online to check the weather forecast for The Brenner Pass. Snow forecasted. Again several times the next morning, they both voluntarily checked forecasts. When information didn't seem to be updated as often as they liked, Filippo called regional police to verify Pass was open/being plowed. Hotel's Location, truly lakeside, with pedestrian strolling lane between hotel front and lake, situated on a bay of sorts on lake's west side. Can park in front to unload/load luggage. Can't think of anything... View is well worth the stay, as is the staff.
A family business which provides excellent service. No need to mention your room number when requesting the key, they had it in their hand ready. They could not do enough to help.
Fantastic views, very relaxing Could supply tea/coffee making facilities in the room
The familiy that owned the hotel were amazing couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The food was great, I never eat at the hotel but did so after a tip off by another couple staying there, if your fed up of the tourist pizza/pasta/panini fare try hotel commercio for fantastic home cooked quality but cheap food, you won't be dissappointed.
the hotel is very clean, nice rooms and staff was very nice,good breakfast. rooms and shower little small .
Very friendly family run hotel. Staff helped overcome communication difficulties for a non-italian speaking Brits. Breakfast was really good - you could eat enough to last the day! Balcony overlooked the square and gave us real insight into how the locals lived.
Location, clean hotel, good food
The Hotel's central location is great for Lake Garda (100m), for the town of Salo and for access to the surrounding area. We chose it for the good sized family room and the included breakfast. It was great on both counts and having use of one of the two car parking spaces outside was an unexpected bonus - the benefit of travelling out of season! We really enjoyed our stay. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. All good :)
Convenient location, could see Lake Garda from our balcony. Close to shops and restaurants. Parking available though note shown in description. Bathroom a small modular unit; road noise if window open.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms were a decent size and comfortable
We really enjoyed the location of the HRC at the centre of the nice city, to have chance to perceive everyday life of historical place, however being three/five minutes distance from the lake and the beach... N/A
Very nice staff, breakfast good and we liked Salô very much Maybe some more possibilities for parking the car.
Room was big and clean. Great breakfast. Nice staff. Great location.
Indoor pool,views, awesome hotel gardens/terraces Dated facilities; room wasn't very big, no chest of drawers, no tea/coffee facilities and 2 of 3 power points didn't work.
The hotel was extremely comfortable, beautiful views, lovely pool and excellent evening meals. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The grounds lovely and well looked after and very clean and good length pool but deep and indoor facilities too! Certainly recommend for couples and older families! Not far from resort and lake. Breakfast's were a little lacking in choice and variety, disappointing lack of fresh fruit. Very steep walk up to hotel from main road, so car would be advisable. Watch out for the cost of drinks including water, they don't tell you nor offer any wine list with prices!
The staff were very pleasant. There were extensive grounds to explore. There were two very clean swimming pools. The restaurant was excellent both for the breakfast and the evening meal.
funky decor, very cool. friendly staff and superb location. romantic spot
a very nice friendly hotel in a lovely location where we had a very good dinner with good service
Lovely setting on Lake Garda, rooms comfortable, helpful staff, breakfast ok. Needs a note putting on website regarding access by car to hotel - it is pedestrianised outside the hotel and only a tiny sign and intercom on a post to gain access - had to be shown by a policemanafter going round narrow streets several times. !Car parking not near the hotel.
Beautiful location right beside the lake. Pretty building and nicely decorated. Access for vehicles in a no car area worked well for unloading and a good car park is quite near. Staff very pleasant. No air con.
Room interior decoration particularly soul destroying. Although it is situated in a superb position, this family business ran by very nice members of the family have not taken the initiative to bring their business up to the 21st century. Ripe for a takeover/
location,helpfulness in offering free parking during our stay,selection of choice for breakfast. none.
The attitude of the staff was very good indeed and the food was excellent A pity that there was not a lounge to relax in during any bad weather or to enjoy the views
