Firstly it is exactly what we imagined after reading all the other comments. It is a spacious apartment spotlessly clean in a perfect location. The owner and other staff are charming and friendly. We have stayed in huge hotels before and you are just another visitor. At the Doria it's different and you really get a warm welcome. The cooking facilities are not great and I could never have cooked anything appetising than heating a tin of beans up. Air con was needed at 50 euros a week.
A lot of reviewers have commented on the noise. It never bothered us but the hotel is on a Main road. The bar is cheap and again the service is excellent and they have free wifi. You must try Doria spritzer. The imperial hotel next door is relaxing and quiet if you want some chill time by the pool ( the water is freezing).
We stayed for a fortnight and tried to visit as much as we could. Garda is perfect to explore other towns including Verona, Simmone, Bardolino, Malchesine and loads more either by ferry or local bus. We went with Crystal (Thomson) on a organised tour of Venice which was excellent and worth the money.
There is loads of places to eat, we enjoyed la losa just beware some places have a hidden cover charge. We loved every minute of Garda and the Doria was perfect for our needs. We would love to return and explore more and we would definitely stay there again.
