Hotel Centro Turistico Gardesano
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Bussolengo
Reviewed 19 September 2013

I was here with my girlfriend, in April 2013.
This hotel deserves minus points or rating or something, because it's so awful..From the beginning its located in the middle of nowhere..if you want to go to Verona in the night out, the only thing you can do is pay a taxi ,and it costs a lot, so if you dont have lots of money, you have no choice then to stay in hotel.
They have one bar, that is ok but a waitress didnt understand anything, and there is no store near the hotel, where you could buy drinks or food.
First day when we came, the first problem was that nobody knew english or german there. They listened us what we re saying to them but it's quite obvious that they didn't understand a word..We were there as a group of 30people with tourist agency, and when they gave us a room card, we went to the room and saw a naked german person LOL, with its family sitting on a bed..then we went down to the reception, and staff said that the room wasnt ready yet what is funny because how could it not be ready if we, our agency booked our room there?! They didnt even apologize, but they said that we can get ONE free glass of beer hahaha..i thought to myself they must be joking..and said to then, there is me, and my girlfriend, cant we get at least 2 glasses..but no..and the best part of it was when I went for my glass of beer, the person in the bar didnt knew a word of english..
When we finally got our room, the room was with 2 separate single beds,and we booked one large,and a tv in a room is so small and terrible, remainded me on tv in some 80s bar, hanging in the corner of a room.
If you dont want to experience what we ve experienced, dont go..its better to sleep on a bus stop in Verona..
Ive been in hotels and hostels and im not expecting i dont know what, but this is terrible..

At the reception they speak bad english, the rooms were dirty and we had no warm water in the shower..I wouldn't recomed staying there to anyone..parking space is everything but apropriate and easy to find. We had to park next to some yard with horses, and in the morning our car was coverd with dirt and wather, and to top that someone made no.2 just next to our car...

What to say about that so called "Hotel Centro Turistico Gardesano". Very dirty entrence. Rooms are cleadn but bathroom is destroyed (fortget to take pics). Air conditionind is broken. Service is good but could be better. Breakfast is horrible. It's not expensive but for every price what you pay you need to get reasonable value. Not recommend to stay there.

If you are coming from America, stop now and dont even think of it. The standards at this hotel are wayyy below any 3 stars. The rooms are dated, dirty, there is even spiderwebs in the hallway, mosquitos all over the halls and rooms, the pool with a major black ring of dirt around it. The kiddie pool water was murky, ahhh and the best breakfast bread and ham, no eggs, no fruits, just basic...stay somewhere else, run as fast as you can...there are way better options in Bussolengo on the water. But not this.

Room Tip: dont stay here dont book here run fast

Having returned from a school trip our two teenagers showed us the photos of damage to the room that was very apparent when they arrived- holes in the walls broken handle on the door , tap broken, air conditioning not working properly, no tag to turn on the lights . Then we heard about below average food and to top it all the students rooms had money stolen from and belongings gone through- with doors locked - so it can only have been staff! .A very disappointing trip when you think it is advertised as a 3 star hotel and looks somewhat glossy in the pictures! NOT IMPRESSED!

I am pleased to compliment such an accomodating hotel upon returning home from my school's european performing arts tour. We stayed for 4 nights at the hotel, and my friends and I were impressed by the facilities and cleanliness that the hotel boasted. The staff were extremely accomodating, and unhesitantly seated our party of 36 students and 5 teachers for our evening meal of pasta, followed by a heated buffet, despite us being slightly behind scheduele. The staff then offered us a practice room to rehearse for our concert the following day. Upon checking into our rooms, we were impressed to see that every room had a balcony and air conditioning, along with large, comfortable beds. Waking up the next morning, breakfast was a wide variety of cakes, cereals, yoghurts and both hot and cold drinks - perfect before our trip to venice later that day. Yet the most outstanding feature of the hotel has to be its incredibly spacious pool and sunbathing area. We found no issue with the availability of the sun lougers, and were able to enjoy a lng day taking full advantage of the pool facilities and soaking up the sun poolside. On the night of our last concert, the staff were again extremely accomodating when they allowed our party to stay and have a drink in the bar, despite the time having gone midnight. Although we had to check out of our rooms at 10am the following day, the staff allowed us to store our bags and suitcases in the hotel reception prior to our departure at 2pm, giving us time to once again enjoy the fantastic pool area. Overall, a very enjoyable stay at a hotel which I would definitely consider visiting again.

Room Tip: Interconnecting rooms are often given at the same price as a 4 person room.

Having just returned from the hotel gardesano with 36 children, I would highly recommend this location for school parties. The children loved the pool which was clean and very large... Plenty of room considering there were at least 4 other schools staying at the same time.
The food was good, plenty of choice for everyone.
Rooms were all allocated in one block so was safe and easy to manage.
There were some rooms which needed a little tlc, bits of wallpaper hanging off, broken taps etc but we weren't there to stay in our rooms so they were adequate for our needs.
Only one negative was there was a massive party one night for locals which went on till 2:30 am where lots of young people were worse for wear which was unnerving for the staff with regards to the safety of our pupils whose balconies were along the path out of the disco.
Overall I would return to this hotel with a school group, as long as the disco night was not on the same week!!! The pool really made it, plus it's in a good location to get to the lake, Verona, waterpark etc.
I definitely wouldn't recommend this place for couples or families in the summer season.
