Relaxing, enjoyable, riviera style hotel with great service, accommodation and an enjoyable breakfast. Mr Bonotto in particular was a generous host!
We loved Desenzano and all of Lake Garda and Hotel Bonotto certainly contributed to our memorable trip.

We stayed at the Hotel Bonotto from June 25th to 28th June and had a wonderful stay. It was our first time in desenzano and we didnt know what to expect. The hotel has a fantastic location, ten minutes from the main train station and only a short five minute walk to the town centre. The hotel was very clean. Breathtaking views of the lake and in all our years travelling I dont think we have come across a better breakfast in any hotel we have stayed in around the world, fantastic selection of fresh foods every morning and the view from the rooftop area was wonderful. we were really impressed with this hotel and the price was also excellent. The staff were top class and extremely welcoming and couldnt fault them. We will definitely be back! Gerry and Emmanuel Healy, Ireland

Room Tip: Only a ten minute journey to main train station and only a short 5 minute walk to the town centre

dear guests, knowing you wanna come back it's proof we achieved our aim: hospitality around you. thank you for choosing us.
we are certanly working very hard to make our hotel up to our cleints' expectations, but we have to be sincere: our territory helps us a lot. the whole garda region is amazing and especially we are easily in touch with all north-east italy. in other words: BE DESENZANO WITH BONOTTO.
all the best,

We have just returned from a 6 night stay at Hotel Bonotto. The whole hotel was very clean and in good order. Staff, without exception, were friendly, always smiling and very helpful. Our room had a view of the lake and breakfast is taken with a panorama of lake and mountains - always a changing vista. The swifts screeching overhead were dramatic.
The walk into town takes a few minutes only and can be alongside the lake or by the Scavi Romani (excavations of a large Roman Villa). Desenzano itself can't be faulted, good food, lake trips, evening music and other entertainments.
A thoughly good experience.

The problem we have, is that having stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels, human nature tends to compare the present hotel, with the other higher rated ones. However, on realising that the price paid reflects a 3 star, this is really a great hotel. The staff, are all very polite and helpful. The bedrooms are quite compact, as is the bathroom, but everything you need is there. The beds are extremely comfortable, and the linen changed regularly. Towels are thick and fluffy, and again changed quite often. Air con works very effectively, and the double glazing keeps out virtually all the noise from the busy street. Great views from high floor balconies, with two chairs, for ' sundowners '.
Breakfasts are typical Italian, enough to start the day, but not the full buffet.
The position is excellent. Less than 5 minutes, and you have reached the centre of the main square. ( Piazza Cappelletti )
Small supermarket, just round the corner ( away from the main square ), is convenient.
Information office in main square very good.
All in all, a very clean, modern hotel, in a good position.
Would recommend.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the main road have balconies. We had a high floor with views of the lake. Lower on...

dear sir, we have read your comment with great pleasure.
first of all, thank you so much for the way you wrote it, the sensitiveness and transparency showed.
you are right: lot of guests have the attitude to compare us to higher standards hotels wich in a way, give us real satisfaction (the work we are doing is hitting the right way), but on teh other hand, obviously, we are different.
we believe we all are doing our best for our category focusing a lot on service, comfort and cleaning. we want our guests be happy and this is the main target

Although Hotel Bonotto is not lakeside it is only a minute's walk away. Our balcony had magnificent views of the lake and mountains. The staff are lovely and couldn't be more helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We were on the fourth floor the floor directly beneath the heaven room where breakfast is served so we did occasionally hear chairs scraping very early in the morning but this wasn't a huge problem. The hotel is on a busy road but when the windows are closed you don't hear it and the aircon is very efficient. Breakfast was a delightful experience every day. There is a hot and cold selection of food that is constantly topped up. But what really made it is the location on the top floor overlooking the lake. We loved Lake Garda and Hotel Bonotto was an added bonus. I would highly recommend.

dear sue,
thank you very much for your comment. we all are very happy we were able to make your holidays unforgettable.
our hotel has been quite totally renovated and our focus is always on our guests' satisfaction.
most of the time, like for you, we achive our target. other times it's a bit more difficult:
some guests' expectations are a bit higher than our category and obviously the result is different......
i'm glad you have noticed our new windows are working well: only a couple of months ago we put new ones' in order to improve the sleeping confort of our guests.
you, like many other, have been impressed by our heaven room -the breakfast room, from were you can really enjoy an amazing panorama.
from our heart really thank you for the reccomandation and we wish you
all the best.

The owner was there to great my friend and I after a long day of travel.. We were exhausted.. We thought, we were at the right hotel, only to find out, our hotel was completely on the other side of the lake.. There's Garda, and Desenzano Del Garda. We were given directions to this hotel.. What a lucky break for us.. The staff was extremely friendly,and helpful. The room we had was perfect..Clean,with air conditioning,a refrigerator,and free wifi.. A free breakfast was served every morning, with a nice selection to choose from, and the view was amazing..the location was perfect to all the shopping,and ferries to take to explore other parts of the lake..it was my first time there, and it won't be my last.. Can't wait to take my family back there.. It's a great place for families, and even your pet.. Ciao, for now..
