“Great hotel, great location, great holiday!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Met on arrival by the owner - lovely welcome & very helpful staff throughout.
We were a little concerned with the size of the room as it was quite small for four people (double bed & bunks) and there wasn't really enough storage space, but it was clean and comfortable and the very efficient air con - although noisy at night - was most welcome! The fridge was very useful but we did miss tea and/or coffee making facilities. Housekeeping was very good, the room was kept spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was great - loads to choose from and plenty of everything available - and the room was lovely with inside or outside tables and an outstanding view of the lake. The sun loungers on the top floor were lovely for relaxing at the end of a long hot day.
The location of the hotel is fantastic, so close to the lake and within easy walking distance of both the ferry for visiting other places around the lake and the train station for trips further afield (such as Verona and Venice)
All in all a great place to stay in a fantastic location - we didn't want to leave!

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.
