“Lovely hotel in very convenient location”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

The Benaco is a well run, friendly, family run hotel. Our room, although not large, was very clean, had a lovely view of the lake and a good en suite with shower. There was a wide choice at breakfast including cereals, fresh fruit, cold meat, cheese, pastries and hot choices. Superb value. The hotel is close to the station and only a short walk from the lake and the port making it an excellent base for our stay at Lake Garda.

The Benaco Hotel was for us (mature couple) a pleasant,complete,enjoyable experience at the right price. It's location is superb in terms of availing of all nearby modes of transport. The facilities were fully functional, and complete for us. Pool was relaxing and very well fitted out and maintained. It was in pristine condition. This is a family run business with obvious and positive commitment by family members involved. Breakfast was more than adequate with a good array and choice -which was well stocked. Service was with a smile, and owners/,staff were very helpful and courteous. We were in room 118 which was to the back - and while the air cconditioning unit engaged during the night - the associated sound did not unduly impinge our our stay and enjoyment. I would unhesitatingly return and recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: A room to the front with balcony and pool/lake view would be ideal.

We have just spent a beautiful 10 days at Desenzano Del Garda, staying at the Benaco Hotel.
We were very impressed by the location and the lovely welcome we received from very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were spotless with everything we required. Very impressive shower! Hotel met all our expectations and requirements during our stay.

Throughout our stay the staff were extremely friendly. We enjoyed a very substantial breakfast every day and could always have coffee or drinks from the hotel bar at any time during the day.

If we were visiting area again, The Hotel Benaco would certainly be our choice of hotel.

Room Tip: I would have liked a balcony but our room on the side was probably a lot quieter.

Such a lovely hotel, got a free welcome drink when we arrived, rooms were very clean we had a balcony and were able to sit out in the evening. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is only 10 mins walk into the beautiful square and pier, we will definitly be back..

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool had a nice view and the sun shone into the rooms in the morning

I recently stayed at Hotel Benaco and was immediately impressed when I arrived. The grounds are well-kept and the check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was well-appointed with fantastic shower, complimentary toiletries and comfortable bed. The air conditioning wasn't working in my room and when I spoke to the gentleman at reception about it, I was immediately upgraded to a room with fully-working air conditioning. This was greatly appreciated as it meant that I had a brilliant night's sleep. The location of the hotel is great - only a couple of minutes walk from the train station with direct trains to Venice, Verona and Milan, and about 7 minutes walk from the harbour. This was ideal for me as I used Desenzano as a base for visiting Verona and Venice. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice of cereals, fresh bread rolls, pastries and fruit. I would highly recommend Hotel Benaco. They even offer a 10% discount for repeat stays. I found Hotel Benaco a quiet, relaxing and comfortable and look forward to returning. Thank you to all the staff!

Room Tip: Room 111 is a large, comfortable and well-appointed room with a small balcony. Would recommend!

This was my second visitto this hotel. The last being 7 years ago and it didn't disapppoint!
So friendly and only a few minutes walk from the main Milan - Venice rail route, although you would not know it!!

From the moment we arrived, the welcome was great. It offers a relaxing and ideal place to exploreone of teh most beautiful parts of Italy.

Will we return? You bet we will!!

We stayed in Benaco Hotel for 2 nights in Ocober, 2013. The hotel appeared to be very nice, clean and cosy. Moreover, it's 5 minutes walk from the railway station and about 7 minutes walk from the city center. Breakfast was included and was good enough including some gateau's.:) The staff was always nice and helpful. They have free wi-fi connection in every room. Moreover, in the lobby there is a desktop PC with a printer at your disposal, free of charge. Generally, the hotel was very good and nicely decorated, in authentically italian style. The only minus was that for late check-out we were charged some additional money.
So, if you need to spend several nights in a pleasant and peaceful italian atmosphere not far from the city center and the railway station - that's just the right place to settle!
