Hotel Plaza
Reviewed 2 June 2013

We have just returned from the Hotel Plaza and we had a lovely stay here. The hotel is perfectly situated on the lake and the staff couldn't have been more helpful ( including giving us discount vouchers - thank you Francesca!) and we were delighted with our rooms. As a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children) we were given 2 lovely rooms with great views over the lake and a small veranda. The rooms were spacious, the beds very comfortable and we had every convenience in our room. They were also kept spotlessly clean, with slippers, soap and shower/hair gels included. The breakfast was continental like most Italian hotels, with cereals, meats, cheese and fresh croissants/rolls every day. The hotel lounge has lovely comfy seats and a wee bar for your hot and cold drinks. There is also free wifi which my husband and son were delighted with. I would highly recommend the Hotel Plaza and wouldn't hesitate to book it again if we return to the lovely Desenzana. Thank you very much to all the staff for making our holiday so enjoyable!

Good things: good, central loaction, friendly stuff, internet free, unfortunately nothing more
Bad things: it got this 4 stars 50 years ago.... Looks now like museum with cheesy furnitures and equipment, lift didnt work and was awful. Standard was very low, not even for one star. I dont recommend it.

Gen.li Clienti,
siete stati accolti nella nostra Struttura nonostante la Vostra prenotazione fosse presso un Hotel 3 stelle che Vi ha dovuto dirottare presso di noi.
La tariffa applicata, nonostante l’up-grade di categoria, è rimasta invariata e per 30 euro a persona, colazione e internet incluso la camera assegnata era ovviamente di categoria Standard (come da Voi indicato nel commento).
L’ascensore è effettivamente rimasto fuori servizio per un banale neon fulminato che è stato tempestivamente sostituito nel giro di un’ora, ci scusiamo del disguido, ma sono cose che purtroppo accadono ovunque, il fatto di essere un Hotel non preclude che le lampadine non si possano fulminare o qualcosa rompersi. L’importante è provvedere in un lasso di tempo ragionevole.
La scelta di stile e dell’arredamento, così come dei decori utilizzati è ovviamente un gusto personale, non pretendiamo di poter piacere a tutti.
Siamo invece molto lieti di apprendere che il nostro servizio sia stato di Vostro gradimento, la cordialità e la disponibilità del personale sono senza dubbio uno dei nostri punti di forza.
Cordiali saluti

My partner and I stayed in Plaza Hotel for 3 nights in April 2013.
The hotel is ideally located for exploring this magnificent lake and is low cost with always helpful and very friendly staff. The room was not modern, but clean!
Breakfast was nice.

This really is not what you'd expect for a 4 star hotel.

In the first room we were given, everything was very dusty. Clearly hadn't been cleaned properly in a while. The toilet bowl was dirty, so we asked for it to be cleaned and went out to eat. On our return the toilet still hadn't been cleaned and we were told the cleaner had gone home so nothing could be done. So we asked for another room, which thankfully we got. At least that one was cleaner!

Breakfast was not good at all. Little choice and nothing seemed very fresh.

Would not stay here again. Pity because it's well situated for exploring Desenzano and getting to the ferry to explore other parts of Desenzano. But that's about the only good thing about the hotel.

The hotel is really close to the promenade, right in the centre of the town and easily accessible by car which was good for us since we had rented one at the airport - mind you, the Hotel doesn't have a private parking but there is a free car park at walking distance (there is one right in front of the Hotel which is really a rip off, but 50m from the hotel there is actually a free car park. The room was rather small but clean and cosy and we had a gorgeous view of the lake (we originally booked a standard room but we got upgraded at the check-in). The Hotel staff were really sweet and gave us all the info we needed in order to move around the area. All in all we had a lovely trip, Desenzano del Garda is stunning and if the staff of Plaza Hotel is reading I just want to say again THANK YOU!"

We got a really cheap deal so we got excellent value for money. Our room was at the front with view over the harbour.
Room was fine. Very similar to others we've stayed in in Italy.
Good buffet breakfast.
Had everything we needed for a few days in Lake Garda which is a fabulous place.
Recommend getting the boat to Garda to try the lakeside restaurants.
Also recommend a cocktail from the bar next to the hotel (turn left out of the hotel and it's the first one you come to)
