“Paradise!”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

This hotel is something you should not miss if visiting Sirmione. The old building is fascinating and the rooms are comfortable. The only thing I miss in the room is a fridge; now there is no place to keep any foods or drinks cold. The location is perfect, and so is the service. The breakfast is great, including sparkling wine, no better way to begin your day than sitting in the morning sunshine on a terrace facing the lake! I definitely want to come back. We stayed here in the end of September, and the weather was lovely, warm but not too hot, and no masses of tourists in this hotel or in the town.

We just returned from staying at Hotel Grifone and feel we have discovered a little gem in an incredible location! While not fancy, this hotel can boast superior service, comfort, and attention to detail. The owner, Ensa, is so charming and works very hard to make sure you have a pleasant and comfortable stay. We had a room overlooking the lake and facing the castle. It was so beautiful! It is cozy and clean. It's like staying with a friend. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and held a great variety of meats and cheeses, breads, yogurts, juices, tea, coffees, and even hot chocolate. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Pay the little extra for a balcony room if available...so worth it!

We were lucky to find this hotel in the old part of Sirmione. Most hotels were closed at this time of year, but this one was open, and we were SO pleasantly surprised... from the PERFECT location (right on the lake and right next to the castle, to the incredible hospitality of Ensa, the owner. She was charming and very kind. You can tell that there is a lot of personal care and attention to details, from the many beautiful flower boxes, the very clean rooms and common areas, to the excellent breakfast with a wide selection of meats, cheeses, breads, juices, etc.
It was easily the best night of our European vacation. Thanks Ensa, for your hospitality, your smile, and for making our stay with you so wonderful!!

Room Tip: Spring a little extra for a balcony room... they are WONDERFUL! Overlooking the lake and castle. Ca...

Fabulous stay...we are here now! Enza is a superb hostess and such a lovely lady. The hotel accommodations are terrific (not plush but certainly comfortable, clean, convenient. This town, this locale, this time of year are all magical; church bells, early sunsets, quacking ducks, few tourists, cool temperatures. Put this town and Hotel Grifone on your 'bucket list'. Ciao, ciao!

We arrived in The Grifone to a great welcome from a very pleant owner who wanted to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The views from our bedroom were spectacular and the breakfast on the balcony, which was included in a very reasonable tariff was excellent.There is a small beach beside the hotel where we swam in the lake and this only added to a great experience.
The hotel is spotless and very comfotable and when we left the owner came to the door with us and wish goodluck. We will be back
