“Lovely hotel in a lovely location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

The hotel itself was lovely. Very well positioned, within a few minutes walk to the lake front with it's restaurants and shops.
Wonderful pool and garden, when we visited we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves most the time.
Great staff, always happy to help.
Third time to Lake Garda and the Gardone Riviera itself is simply stunning.
Tip :- go up into the hills as well as towards the lake, you can find some real gems serving real local cuisine.

It is a few years since we stayed at this hotel but we had a great time when we were there. The room was spacious with a nice view to the front. Whilst there is no lake view the location is very nice and quiet. If we hadn't been staying here we wouldn't have ventured up the hill and found a small old town area and very interesting gardens. As others have said the staff were polite and efficient the the standard of cleanliness was exceptional. When we were there only breakfast was offered so we ate out each night but we probably would have anyway.
Highly recommended in every way.

This is our second time staying at Hotel Villa Sofia, 4 nights two years ago and 2 nights right now (3-4/10/13).
As soon as we entered the hotel we felt like home.
The reception was great and very warm, we got the same room where we last time with a bottle of champagne and a welcome home blessing.
Great staff that taking care of everything and gives a warm feeling of homeץ
Excellent location for traveling in Lake Garda and great restaurants near by.
Recommended for anyone visiting Lake Garda.
Many thanks to Giovanna, Eva, Mara and Rodrigo for outstanding stay.

Room Tip: Rooms with lake view are excellent.

We stayed three night in September and can definately recommend this hotel. Quiet location away from the sometimes busy lakeside road. Clean comfortable roooms. Great breakfast and very friendly helpful staff. Gardone is a treat and we found some very good restaurants.

Well done and thank you!

Room Tip: Our first night was a disabled room at the back - a bit noisy and little in the way of a view. on as...

Charming hotel with wonderful staff ! The rooms are immaculately clean and very comfortable , go up to the terrace on the third floor for amazing views . Perfectly situated half way up the hill , a short walk to some great restaurants . Wish we could have stayed longer !

We enjoyed two days at Hotel Villa Sofia recently, and we are pleased to report that it sure lived up to the reviews given by other travellers here on TripAdvisor.

We had originally booked at the Savoy Palace Hotel, and stayed there for one night in advance to our stay at Villa Sofia, and let me just simply say that this hotel outdueled its larger hotel counterpart by a long-shot!

While it's not right next to the marina in Gardone, it's a short walk away and its position on the hill fits nicely with the charming atmosphere. The pool has chairs for just about every hotel guest and the pool was never overcrowded. We had a room with lake view, and what a view!

Highly recommended for a four star hotel in this region of Lake Garda! Would definitely come back!

Having just spent 5 nights at the Villa Sofia, I cannot recommend it highly enough! Incredibly friendly staff who spoke excellent English and were very helpful on all fronts! Great room, great breakfast and fantastic pool! All a short walk (either up or down the hill) to nearby brilliant restaurants! I will definitely be back!
