“Lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

A lovely little hotel which is close to everything you need. The bed was comfy enough in a lovely clean modern room. The bathroom looked lovely but i did have a bit of trouble with the shower.

For location this was great but in the heat i would have preferred to have a pool to dip in at the end of the day and on my extra day.

This is the latest of a number if stays at City Hotel. I love staying here. Always made to feel very welcome. Hotel location is great - a quiet side street near the main part of Desenzano. Handy for getting the ferry that goes round Lake Garda.

A nice hotel very well situated, 5 minutes walk to the downtown area, but still very quiet. Warm welcome from a very friendly staff. Rooms of good size, recently redone, modern, well equipped quality beds. Good bathroom and shower. Excellent breakfast, continental style, no eggs.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Stayed here for 1 night while travelling to Lake Garda. This is near the lake as well and is a small 2 minute walk to the main area which has loads of restaurants and shops.

The room is small and the bathroom is smaller. However taking a shower was perhaps the trickiest bit as it is probably the smallest cubicle I have ever experienced and I have experienced quite a few.

The room was comfortable and AC working was ok.

Breakfast options were few and was not as good as other places I have had in Italy.

Staff is friendly and helpful.

Cute decor with a bike in the lobby and a few racing memrobalia in the breakfast section which I think belongs to the family's son.

Overall a decent place to stay when in the area. Recommended.

Had a very comfortable 2 nights at this hotel. Friendly atmosphere. Breakfasts very nice and spoilt for choice from the continental selection.
The hotel owner must be a great F1 & Ferrari fan as there was a room set aside for memorabilia.
Restaurants and bars 5 minutes away.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in September 2013. The location is very good - about a two minute walk to the main square. We had a car so the free parking was also a bonus. Our room was on the second floor and looked like it had just been newly decorated. It was quite a small room but enough space for our two large suitcases. The only slight criticism was that the walls are quite thin and we could here a baby crying one night - not enough to stop us sleeping though. Breakfast was included and was buffet style with a good selection.

We spent five days at this hotel and were very impressed with everything. The location is fine about two minutes from the main square and ten minutes downhill from the train station.. We found the staff excellent always helpful and courteous. They even arranged transfers to and from Bergamo airport. . Our rooms were spacious , beds were comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. I would highly recommend this hotel.
