“Limone sul Garda -A magical place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

We have recently returned from the Hotel Monte Baldo in Limone having experienced a wonderful 7 day holiday. The location of this hotel was for us absolutely superb - true it can be busy and noisy in the street outside at times but this is a small price to pay for the stunning views from the hotel front bedrooms and its very convenient and interesting location. It is bang in the middle of a busy resort so these minor negatives should be expected and tolerated in view of the many positives. The area quietens down considerably after the lake ferries stop running early in the evening.
Limone is a really magical place busy on the front during the afternoons but it is easy to get away from the crowds if you want to by walking north or south along the lake edge or up into the hills (nice path along the San Giovanni stream from the edge of the public park). There are numerous quieter narrow alleyways and cobbled streets off the front to explore and several good inexpensive welcoming restaurants and bars away from the more touristy areas providing good quality food and drinks.
The Hotel Monte Baldo is exceptionally clean with excellent facilities, friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast is very good and the meals in the bar or restaurant are first class with a very interesting menu and an excellent wine list .
This is a hotel which is well worth returning to which is something we intend to do as soon as possible.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a lake view and balcony

Just back from a very disappointing holiday. The Hotel itself is nice, staff friendly & helpful. Rooms are clean but bed not changed all week particularly as air conditioning wasn't working for 5 days out of 7! Toiletries ie soap not replenished & no shower gel/shampoo provided. Breakfast was very good although dining room extremely hot. The location is ok as long as you don't mind noise outside from 6am which we had to endure owing to the lack of air con & the necessity to have all the windows open due to the heat. We were offered a reduction of 20 euros which didn't compensate for the lack of sleep. Going back to the location the Port is more like a market square FULL of mainly English & German tourists very crowded & noisy. The shops are full of the usual tourist tack & virtually all the lake front restaurants have the same menu the sort you would expect to find in Benidorm. If the hotel were in a different location it would be great.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a lake view, as far as we could see other rooms have one small window & no view.

We had high hopes for the Monte Baldo Hotel having read wonderful reviews and we were not disappointed. We always try to stay in small, characterful hotels and the Monte Baldo is a gem tucked away in the heart of Limone a short walk from where our taxi was able to drop us off. The hotel is so pretty and we received a warm welcome once we had found our way to the first floor reception area. Our room, on the second floor, was a delight with stunning views across the little harbour and lake to distant mountains. We also had the bonus of a side window which looked along the little paved street alongside. Sitting on our balcony and taking in the sights in the evening became a true pleasure. Our room was very comfortable and quite spacious as well as being smartly decorated with highly efficient air conditioning...always a plus!. The ensuite bathroom was of excellent standard....everything worked really well. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts, which were ample with good choice, especially when it was not too hot to sit on the terrace balcony and continue to admire our surroundings. The restaurant was also a most attractive space and we admired the simple but stylish traditional decor. We had three evening meals at the hotel, one in the bar-restaurant down stairs, where we enjoyed tasty food and cheerful service from friendly staff.
There were really no negative points to report regarding the hotel from our point of view but some guests may find some street noise (clearing out bottles, deliveries, etc.) in the morning a problem. This was a small price to pay, and to be expected, if one stays in the middle of Limone.
We had a wonderful week's break on Lake Garda and explored on foot and via boat. There is a lot to do including lake bathing (very refreshing but rocky underfoot), walking, places of interest, etc. The north end of the lake, where Limone is situated, was, in our view, the most spectacular and interesting with the mountains as backdrop and the higgledy-piggledy streets which were full of charming discoveries. Limone itself also has a lovely promenade which makes for great evening strolls along the lake. The fact one can drink the local water and fill up bottles from taps on many street corners was also a plus for us, though those with sensitive tummys may want to take care.
This was our first visit to the Italian Lakes and we are sure it won't be our last. We hope to return to Monte Baldo Hotel.

Spending three nights at the Monte Baldo was an absolute joy. We had a beautiful room with a balcony on the top floor with a spectacular view looking down on Limone, at the expanse of Lake Garda and the beauty of Monte Baldo across the lake. The breakast buffet was very good with indoor or outdoor seating looking out on the lake. The restaurant proved to be as good as mentioned by other Trip Advisor reviewers. I would highly recommend the tender and sweet grilled prawns. The friendly and attentive service staff made our drinks in the bar and our dinner a most enjoyable experience.
The local police allow you to drive along the pedestrian lakefront to their police station and tourist information building which leaves just a short walk with your luggage to the Monte Baldo. The hotel provides free parking at the nearby parking garage.
The hotel is centrally located and convenient to dinning, shopping, night life, and the ferry which we took for a short ride across the lake to Melcesine where we took the cablecar up Monte Baldo for spectacular views of the lake.

Room Tip: Request a top floor lakeside room if available.

This is one of those rare hotels that is even better than advertised. Most 3 star hotels in Italy, particularly in touristy locations, are more like 2 or 1 star hotels. In my opinion this hotel actually rates 4 stars. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The views were spectacular, and provided a particularly memorable backdrop for breakfast or other meals. The (included) breakfast deserves its own sentence. Fresh cut meats, quality cheeses, fresh fruits and veggies, a daily variety of cakes and breads...I have experienced some fine European breakfasts (we live in Europe) but this one was truly sublime. For lunch/dinner the restaurant has some excellent dishes (carpaccio, chocolate souffle cake, an interesting orange-flavored ravioli), and most of the menu rates at least "good". The food is clearly much better than at the surrounding restaurants, which mainly cater to rather chubby, elderly German tourists.

The hotel was so newly renovated the doors had no scratches. It was extremely tastefully done, with spacious rooms and bathrooms. We had a "mountain view" room, which didn't have much of a view, but was extremely quiet (good for our baby) and let in plenty of light during the day.

There are a few downsides:
- no WIFI or internet, whatsoever, with few options to connect even within the town. There's one tiny cafe about 1km uphill, but you have to use their computers.

- as other reviewers have said, the hotel is a bit hard to get to. If you have tons of luggage, be prepared to work a bit before checking in. The hotel is about 200m away from the nearest spot to (temporarily) park a car for unloading.

- the town is boooring, unless you happen to be one of the aforementioned chubby elderly German tourists. Then you'll probably quite like it. Even the ice cream sucks. Hiking in the region is great, but you could say that about a lot of towns near Lake Garda.

It's a wonderful hotel and restaurant in a very pretty and well-maintained, if lifeless, town.

We chose this hotel from the look of its location and the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed whatsoever. We couldn't fault it. Mario and his colleagues are friendly and helpful. Our room on the 2nd floor overlooked the lake and watching the world go by from the small balancy there was wonderful. An excellent restaurant, in fact we ate in it for 6 out of the 7 nights and the other night at their sister restaurant Gemma. Breakfasts were excellent with a great choice. Our stay also included a lake trip on their lovely traditional style boat which was delightful. The only slight drawback we encountered was with the initial finding of the hotel but that wasn't helped by an airport delay which meant it was dark by the time we got there. In daylight I'm sure it would be considerably easier.
