Albergo Garni Eden
Ranked #20 of 33 Hotels in Torbole
Reviewed 8 January 2014

My wife and I stayed in Hotel Edent in September 2013 as part of a Topflight trip. Firstly, Torbole and the surrounding towns are really beautiful. Eating out is very affordable and there is lots to do. The family that run this hotel were very welcoming, helpful and could not have done more to make us feel at home there. The rooms are basic but very clean. Breakfast each morning is standard continental breakfast, salami, cheese, bread, coffee. Hard boiled eggs are also served.

The hotel is ~1/2 kilometer from the center of Torbole. One of the great things about the hotel is that it provides free bikes for its residents. Torbole and the surrounding area is very bike friendly. There are fantastic dedicated cycle paths that are safe for those who are not used to cycling. You can use them to explore the magificent mountain scenery, vineyards, rivers etc. Also there's a cycle track to the nearby town of Riva.

The swimming pool and sun lounging facilities are excellent. If the sun is getting too much you can get additional shelter under one of the many olive trees on the grounds of the hotel.

We liked Torbole so much that we plan to go there again this year and intend to stay in this hotel again.

I'm still here and will come back. Perhaps next year.

Friendly staff, always clean rooms and really not far from all the bars and restaurants! Only the sun beds and umbrellas at the beach are very expensive!

I thought I had actually submitted a review to this hotel. Must have forgotten and only realised when I looked back to recommend to friends. Anyway The Eden was our hotel of choice in 2010. What a lovely small and perfectly located place it is. Family run and they could not do enough to please. They offer a B&B option only but that is fine as there are many excellent restaurant options on Lake Garda and it is nice to sample many types of Italian cuisine we felt. THe hotel is situated about a 4 minute walk from the town centre. It is a real pleasure to stroll back in the evening alond the residential avenue leading up to the hotel amid the aroma of vanilla trees that adorn the gardens of many of the houses in the area. The hotel is basic but immaculately clean and serviced each day to a very high standard. There is a small bar where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a beer and of course some excellent coffee.

Room Tip: They are all the same and of equal good quality

Had a wonderful stay here at hotel eden! Just a 5 min walk off the main centre in torbole. Torbole is a fantastic windsurf haven, that is a leisurely lake shore stroll from riva del Garda.

Lake Garda is a great location and a great active holiday destination. Hotel was clean and all we needed as a b&b - as we spent most days out and about and ate out every night. Lots of greenery around the hotel - it feels secluded and honest to the area. A big plus for us was the big breakfast option and borrowing the bikes to cycle around. Good for kids - playground, pool, hot tub and ping ping.

Rooms cleaned ever day and staff were always helpful - though English is patchy however if like us you would get by!

Enjoy your stay - recommend!

ill try to give a comprehensive review of hotel eden and torbole in lake garda...hotel eden is in the north of the lake...not to be confused with all the other hotel edens in lake garda!! so make sure you ask what town your hotel is in....we were with topflight so i think this might be the hotel they try to sell...."Albergo Garni Eden" is topfights "hotel eden torbole" from my experience..

well ill start from the transfer from the airport in verona to torbole....it is at least a 1.5 hour trip from the airport to the hotel eden in torbole what with leaving people off en-route which is a bit of a sickner so be well prepared for the long haul in the bus, however there is fantastic scenery along the way passing through lovely villages etc...

when you eventually reach the hotel eden you will be greeted with a lovely family of staff with poor english however they are very friendly and have defo enough english for you to get by...the rooms are basic..there is a safe, hair dryer (poor but works and saves room in your suitcase)no air con or fridge but there is ice available from the bar...the bar is dead and closes at eleven so dont even bother with it...

the hotel is very clean the cleaners insist on coming in every morning to change towels and sheets...the pool and gardens are very clean well maintained and quiet with no problem trying to get a sun lounger!...the heat can be very dead at the hotel during the night but all you have to do is leave your balcony door open and tis grand.....the breakfast is grand for the first 2 days but gets very repetitive so it was nice to treat yourself to breakfast out some mornings...you had a choice of cereals salami ham cheese boiled eggs juice coffee etc...

before embarking to lake garda i had this image in my head of a tiny village and was very skeptical of it after booking it however my skepticism wasnt long being turned on its head!!...torbole is a fantastic touristy town with many many hotels resturants bars etc it is a good 8 minute stroll to the center of town but its all flat with no hills so people with mobilty issues wont have to worry about hills, same with the hotel it has and elevator and looks to be wheelchair friendly but check that for yourself to be sure...couples and familys will love this place no matter what age they are...there is more than enough resturants to go to a different one each night even if you are staying for two weeks!!...there is windsurfing paddle boats etc...just like you get in spain..it is a truly fantastic area!!...ice cream shops bakerys tobacco shops etc they are everywhere!

tobacco shops sell most cigarettes and aren't as cheap as they are in Spain but are definatly more cheaper if not cheaper than half the price you would pay in ireland..dont wait to buy them at the airport because they only have a duty free shop at verona airport and you may not be entitled to it depending where you travel to.

we ate in a lovely resturant called the sufers grill which is when you get to the main road turn right and then after the bank turn left down the alley..sounds a bit off the beaten track but it is actually not and is always full of people!!...as regards pubs and clubs...there is one place called winds bar which is full of germans but they are never ever drunk or dangerous or falling around!...they are quiet friendly actually...we didnt think much of it but it will surely be somebodies cup of tea!...around the corner from that there is a bar called moby dicks which is always buzzing with familes and couples and groups of friends!...cider is extremely hard to find!...they sell it in the supermarket called coop which is just at the junction for the main road 5 mins from the hotel strongbow is what you can buy but doesnt come refidgerated!

the only pub we found that sells cider is "the cutty sark" https://foursquare.com/v/cutty-sark/4de505a9e4cd056f747ff7c3 which is a small family run pub which i would highly recommend the staff are friendly and always go out of their way!!...we started early one evening and for every pint we bought we got a plate of continental food which was fantastic so keep an eye out for this bar:-) the price of drink isnt as cheap as spain obviously depending on what you are drinking but is definatly cheaper than at home in ireland or england...the price of eating out depends....you can eat cheap or expensive...if you stick to pasta and pizza..you get massive portions and you are talking at most €8 per portion of pizza/pasta so with drinks for 2 you can eat for as little as €25 per couple per night...traditional english/irish dishes potatoes steaks meat etc are the same price as at home....you will be spoiled for choice in resturants...

i would recommend a boat trip to limone(home of the lemons) which is a lovely small town...and also if you have the option to tour a vinyard take it because they literally fill you up with as much wine as you can handle

there are sun-loungers on the stone beaches for rent i think €10 gets you 2 but i would recommend them...you can swim in the lake and there is a life guard lots of them actually, the lake can actually get quiet deep so be careful!

we met a lovely couple while in torbole and they were also staying in the hotel so we had a few drinks and got a bit lively and ended up back at the hotel room quiet late and had a few more drinks there...there was complaints waiting at reception the following morning over the noise and we did get given out to by the staff but i suppose justly so....this hotel is not for the young and lively if ye plan on drinking in hotel room till 6 in the morning but the town is great for it!...so if you are young and lively just try to keep it quiet when you get back to the hotel!

over all the area gets 4 out of 5 because of a lack of choice of pubs but a great buzz around and a great choice of resturants around the town...there is also a few ATMs so cash need not be taken..and the hotel gets 4 out of 5 because of lack of air-conditioning and but the scenery around the hotel is great and staff are friendly and helpful and the pool area and gardens are lovely...there is also an option to take bicycles for the day from the hotel which is great!

i will be returning to hotel eden and definatly torbole!!!...
