Great little hotel.
Short walk from the bus station, we arrived early and our room was ready. Really friendly, helpful staff. We had a room on the top floor, facing the front of the hotel. They mention on the website the recent refurbishment and it has been done to a high standard. The place is spotless as well.
Room was a good size, large king size bed, a little harder than we are used to, but we got used to it. Chair and a small desk. Large wardrobe with a safe inside. Really nice bathroom, walk in shower and bidet. Good air conditioning unit. Flat screen TV, hundreds of channels, but none in English. 90% Italian and the rest German and Austrian. Great, super fast wifi, although it wouldn't allow auto join once you had signed in once, so you had to keep putting in the special username and password. No tea or coffee in the room.
Small pool outside, but the loungers are in the shadow most of the day. Small car park at the back of the hotel, but I read they wanted 35 Euros a day to park there. Still parking in Garda is very expensive. I noticed the lakeside pay and display was 1.50 Euros an hour.
Large breakfast room in the basement. Breakfast was really good - cereals, fresh fruits, juices, pastries, continental meats and cheese, plus scrambled eggs and bacon and a range of breads and toast, plus coffee and tea on tap. Very good. They didn't mind you taking stuff back up to your room.
Location very good. 5-10 minutes down hill to the lakeside. If you sleep with the windows open there can be some traffic noise.
Usual check out is 11am. On the day we left our airport shuttle wasn't until nearly 4pm and they let us keep the room for nothing. They also arranged the airport shuttle for us, 20 Euros per person that was added to the bill.
Overall, very, very good value. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
