Hotel Al Castello
Ranked #9 of 26 Hotels in Torri del Benaco
Reviewed 23 June 2009

We stayed here for 3 nights attending a wedding in Torri. I can't recommend this hotel highly enough, from the welcome we received when we arrived, to the handshake and goodbye we received when we left, we were so well treated I can't thank Daria enough.
We booked this hotel directly, and at 35 Euros per person per night, this is a bargain for the area. They also book your airport transfers for you if you require them.
Upon arrival, Daria greeted us and knew exactly who we were and had us checked in quickly.
Our room was fairly basic but had everything we needed, but the view was amazing, you can see the lake and the castle. Also you spend very little time in the room as there is plenty to see and do.
On our second morning we were late to breakfast as it was the morning after the wedding, but Daria was still insistent that we should have something before we went out and put on some food and drink for us, we have not been to a hotel like that before!
The resort is very much family orientated and also makes for a very romantic location, defiantly the best of both worlds.
Overall Torri is an amazing place, very relaxing, it has plenty to do and see and the people there are very welcoming, but the hotel and Daria made this trip so much more special

Have just returned from a week in Torri del Benaco staying at the Hotel al Costello. What a fanastic resort & what a fantastic hotel! This may only be a two star hotel but I doubt you will find a better one in this part of the world unless you spend a huge amount more. Why? Well the staff running the hotel could not be more helpful or friendly; the food is absolutely terrific itallian home cooked fayre; the location is perfect close to the lake, resort centre & the rooms are clean airy & comfortable. What more could you want?
We had a room on the top floor (308) that has a balcony & a great view so if I stay again I would ask for a room on the upper floor.

Having read the reviews of this hotel we were looking forward to staying here but thought perhaps the reviews were a little optimistic. How wrong could we be - the hotel was absolutely great, although basic, but what do you expect for a 2* establishment. It was clean and bright, very welcoming and friendly. The family who own and run the Al Castello were charming and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our flight was delayed but they kept meals for us all (a delicious artichoke lasagne and pannacotta for desert) even though it was well outside their dining hours. The food was excellent throughout and the portions were more than adequate - in fact 3 courses were occasionally too much! The whole experience represented good value for money - it was close to all amenities - and we would certainly recommend the Al Castello to anyone.

I have never written a review on a web site before, but having come back from our brilliant holiday in Torri and stayed at Hotel Castello I really wanted to let other people know considering staying there how great it was.

It isn't a five star luxury hotel, but it is a friendly, family run hotel, the rooms are cleaned every day to a high standard, we were on a half board package and the food was great both at breakfast and dinner including service.

The hotel is centrally located, near waterfront, restaurants and bus routes and the air conditioning is great. I labour this point becuase we went to Torri for a friends wedding so there were a number of guests staying in various hotels in torri some who were paying £200 a night and their air conditioning was switched off at mid night and they were roasting. We had to switch ours off because it was too cold.

The only point i would say is that there are no fridges in the room and when the tempatures are as hot as we expereinced that would have helped, but over all we had a great holiday, the accomodation was great, torri is brillinat and i can't wait to go back again.

WE have just returned from a week's holiday there and the hotel was excellent.The small family run hotel had excellent home cooked food and the staff were very friendly and welcoming.The rooms are basic but clean.
Torri is a lovely quiet resort.The small shops and restaurants were good value and the area is mainly flat so easy to walk about.
It's easy to get the ferries to other towns and villages around the lake and this is a lovely relaxing way to travel.
A great place to go to relax and sample home cooked Italian food.

First time on Lake Garda, wasn't sure where to stay in the masses towns and villages. Chose Torri because it seemed one of the less-touristy areas.
Having not read much on this hotel, booked with some trepidation. Need not have worried; booked direct with the Hotel, who kept in touch via mail.
Staff were tremendous, very efficient and friendly. Check-in was seamless, room had excellent air-conditioning unit (at a previous hotel I had to sleep UNDER the air-conditioning unit to get any comfort). Room was basic, very clean, with a great view of the lake and castle opposite. Small bathroom, but no issues there.
The hotel seemed quite small, no bar area that I could see.

Torri is a great place to visit, locals are very friendly and accomodating. One thing I noticed was the abundance of Germans who strutted about as if the owned the town; being a fluent German speaker, I understood their conversation, most of it non-complimentary directed at non-Germans. However, do not let it put you off from visiting this charming town, and when you do I would certainly recommend this hotel.
