Hotels in Sirmione Lake Garda

We are staying in Lake Garda for 5 days end of June, we have decided to base ourselves in Sirmione, as this seems to be the most popular and central town (flying out of Verona), is this correct? we would like to base ourselves where there is a buzz at night with a choice of restaurants and bars but also a good base for visiting other parts of the lake etc.

What hotel/apartment would you advise is best to stay in Sirmoine, the Acqua Resort apartments (very reasonable) have received some great reviews but my concern is the location is looks some distance from the Old City and which would lead to us getting taxis each night in and out to the old city plus there are no view of the lake, are my concerns wrong here and this resort is within walking distance of the old city eg 10-15 Minutes, the other hotel I have found (quite expensive) in the Old City is Hotel Eden is this Hotel worth the price and its location, we don’t’ mind paying the extra but it would want the wow factor?

Hi, from what I can find about the location of the Acqua Resort, it is not near Sirmione and is in fact in an area called Santa Maria di Lugana, at the base of the peninsula - it would be quite a long walk to the town. The Hotel Eden is far better located, being right in the Old City. This is a link to its reviews:

tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g187842-d3141…

Sirmione is a beautiful town and is very popular - as a result it is extremely busy during the summer months and at times it can be very congested. Its location means it is well situated for visiting other towns at the south of the lake but not ideal for visiting the northern towns. If you want to visit towns to the north as well as the south then perhaps you could consider staying in Garda or Bardolino on the eastern shore. Both towns are within an easy bus journey of Verona, have a good boat service and a wonderful evening atmosphere. There is a lovely lakeside path linking the towns of Garda, Bardolino, Cisano and Lazise - or even all the way to Peschiera. In contrast, the walking opportunities from Sirmione are limited.

Thanks for much for the quick response, thank for clarifying about Acqua Resort you have confirmed my concerns, but you now have me thinking that Garda or Bardolino could be a better option, could you recommend accommodation here?

Hi, would you prefer a hotel close to the lake or one with a pool? Something Boutique style or more traditional? An idea of your preferences would help us to make suggestions.

I haven't stayed in this hotel near Bardolino but I have heard great things about it:

In Lazise there's the relatively new Corte Valier Hotel on the lakeside:

In Garda the Hotel Garden is in a lovely quiet location:

There are many hotels to choose from to suit different budgets, so the more information we have the better we can help.

Something to consider is that some hotels prefer to take one-week bookings in the summer months. These sites may help you to find something suitable:

In historic walled town of Sirmione the hotel of choice is the Catullo may be small but I can assure you it is the best family hotel you are ever likely to encounter; just read the reviews. the pace is run by the same extended family.

However beautiful though it is Sirmione because of its' location is generally not considered the best choice of resort for touring the lake.

I've stayed at Hotel Eden, Hotel Flaminia and Hotel Marconi. They are all in an excellent location within the walls of the old town. Hotel Eden and Hotel Flaminia are on the lake front, with Marconi a few metres back. They were all very pleasant, with Eden and Marconi having large decks out to the water. If you have a car, Eden and Marconi have parking available on site, with Flaminia you can drive in to drop luggage, but then need to go back out through the gates to public parking around 500 metres away. Hotel Eden has the ferry berth on the doorstep, Flaminia is maybe 100 metres away and Marconi another 100 metres. Any Wow factor is being on the lake, with a beautiful town to walk around in the evening when the day trippers have left.

I booked through www.booking.com and had no problems getting stays of 2-3 nights during June.

Thanks for all the advice much appreciated we have decided on Hotel Eden in Sirmione, I know around Garda maybe a better option for locatioin but as this is our first trip I would like to be based in Sirmione (hope I won’t’ regret it)

We would like to take a day trip from Sirmione to Malcesine, what would be the best option to travel to Malcesine, by ferry or driving, also we would like to hire a car for a day or two what are the best scenic road trips to take.

Thanks in advance
