After mistakenly thinking we were staying at another Hotel Gardenia in the Lake Garda region, I was very put off by most of these reviews when I realised my mistake. However, after coming back from what was a perfectly adequate stay for the price, I feel I must say a few things in the hotel's defense. The room was fine, with a very clean and spacious bathroom. We too booked a twin bedded room with Expedia and turned up to find that we had been allocated a double (perhaps the problem lies with Expedia's communication with the hotel?), but a camp bed was added within the hour with no fuss. Breakfast was plentiful, on the first morning we made sure we were there early after the comment about it running out 30 mins before the end, but this is just nonsense. There is adequate food up until the last minute. The pool is enormous and great for proper swimming. The location is fine, there are many bars and restaurants within walking distance and you can walk to the lake within 10 mins. On the negative side, the hotel staff are not the most charming (but pleasant enough) and the walls are very thin, so you don't want to find yourself next to any noisy children! All in all, there is nothing wrong with this hotel. If you want 5 star luxury, but only want to pay for a 3 star, then don't go, but if you are more realistic about what you get for your money then I'm sure you'll have a nice stay.
