“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We stayed at Hotel Bonotto for a family holiday. We go on a lot of family holidays but this was our first to this region of Italy. We stayed in a family room which has a double bed and a bunk bed, thus it fits four, we also had a toddler with us so we requested a cot (at no extra charge). The breakfast was adequate and had something for everyone, and there are many relatively cheap restaurants in Desenzano Del Garda for lunch and dinner, so it does have a pretty good location. The view from the hotel is amazing especially on the roof terrace and the breakfast hall, another good thing about its location is that you are seconds away from the lake itself. Staff were all very friendly and helped you out with everything needed when asked, for instance planning a day trip to Venice.
From the hotel its easy to plan a day trip to somewhere else, not only did we go to Venice but also took a cable car to up to the mountain Monte Baldo and also a boat to Sirmione.
We were on the fourth floor and wifi signal was not the best, but with everything else to do it was a minor. Furthermore, it could be accessed from lower floors.
From Bergamo airport it was quite difficult to get to the hotel, and a shuttle bus was very expensive. However, thats to get to Desenzano itself - not particularly the fault of the hotel.

dear helen,
thanks for your opinion!!!
you made a full portrait of our destination, location and hotel and it seems you quite enjoyed. thank you so much for giving us the possibility to serve you.
our "slow hospitality" is focused on guests satisfacion; we still have to improve in many aspects, but we love our job and it's fun for us.
you are the example of who choos us and desenzano as reference in order to move around our beautiful territory: the whole lake, verona, venice and sourrandings as borghetto, mantova, brescia etc.
thank you again and hope to see you other times -in the end there are many flights from uk to verona or bergamo or malpensa/linate if you feel like spend a few days or a long week-end with us
all the best
emanuele and team bonotto

Excellent hotel. Location is perfect just a few yards from lake and centre. Lots of very good restaurants nearby and in centre . Wide choice of food for breakfast which could be taken either inside or outside with beautiful views of lake and surrounding area. Staff were very friendly and helpfully The rooms and hotel are spotless. The solarium is a perfect place to sit and relax after a busy day visiting other destinations around the lake which are very easy to reach or exploring desenzano itself . Would definitely go back again and recommend the hotel to friends

Room Tip: Ask for non smoking and a balcony facing the lake

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

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
BONOTTO THIS HOTEL!
take care and please keep in touch with us.
happy life,
