“Lovely stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

Beautiful room, helpful staff, beautiful view from balcony, amazing breakfast.... Would highly recommend this hotel and the restaurant. It is located between Desensano and Sirmione and the bus runs from outside the hotel, however ask the hotel staff for the bus times as they seemed a bit unreliable.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel in late April for only one night as we were en route between cities. The hotel is right on the shore of Lake Garda. I paid a relatively small supplement for a room with lake view which was worth having. You also get the great view in the breakfast room. The hotel comes up to four star standard - our room size was adequate, the room clean and the bed comfortable. I would have been happy to have stayed longer there, but I didn't notice many extra facilities in the hotel (gym, access to boating, etc.) which might be desirable for a longer stay. Car parking was spacious and free of charge. Wi-fi Internet was working. The only minus points were a room safe which had been left locked by the previous occupant and which the duty receptionist could not unlock for us when we arrived, and the fact that the smaller roads around the hotel are not well signposted (street names are difficult to see when you are driving), so you either need to have researched the location in advance or be lazy and rely on GPS. But the hotel's location outside a town centre (although still in a built up area) made it very quiet and we enjoyed the peaceful calm of the lakeside there.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a room facing the lake rather than the road. At the time we went, this su...

so what to recommend in Desenzano Del Garda, the market on Tuesday is awesome and is massive runs around the port of Desenzano- the bus routes stop right outside the hotel, for Sirmione and Desenzano ports or Porto roughly about 3.20 euros sometimes cheaper depending on their route. Sirmione is also a port but a great castle holds its fort the town. You know the greatest thing of all is to wake up just inches from the lake the hotel and staff were brillaint. There are several trattoria's close by especially Zattera Grill (which we favoured) and that is a two minute walk right of the hotel, that's where we had several meals and Nick had his 1kg Tbone steak. You can walk to the Supermercado which is 800 metres left. If you want to cab it from the hotel to the airport it is 65.00 euros. If you ever go to Lake Garda enjoy.

After a bit of a struggle to find on Gps, we got there. Lovely view overlooking the lake from a large room with private balcony. Very luxurious hotel with the breakfast room being amazing. Tracy loved the supplied slippers. Breakfast good with boil your own eggs which was different. Staff helpful and overall this place rates very high

we loved the balcony overlooking lake garda, room was fine but its noisey outside, the gardens are pretty and the staff pleasant, but so disappointed we couldn't have dinner as they were setting up for a wedding then next evening it was the wedding, I think they should decide if they are a hotel or a wedding venue, because we weren't the only hotel guests that felt pushed out

We enjoyed 5 nights in the hotel, in a lake view room which was wonderful, the views of the mountains and lake are breathtaking. We enjoyed the breakfast which was served in a lovely room with more perfect views across the lake. The hotel provided us with the perfect location for driving to and visiting local towns as well as Verona and Venice. It was great to return to Aquila d'Oro with ample free car parking and air conditioned rooms with reliable WiFi. The hotel is beautifully fitted out and impecably maintained by a wonderful staff who without exception made our stay so memorable. The desk staff were fantastic lots of helpful local advice, in particular Alima who was so helpful with all our requests. We ate in the restuarant which was an excellent meal served by very attentive staff (even providing us with the exact height of Monte Baldo).

Room Tip: It has to be a room with a view of the lake.
