Hotel Lido
Ranked #19 of 19 Hotels in Gargnano
Reviewed 15 July 2013

It is difficult to write a fair rview on this hotel. It's one of the cheapest in the area thus one should not expect more than the standard of cheapest hotels. On the other hand it is still +50€, which should guarante some standard. I think that the weakest aspect is management of expectations. Pictures on booking.com looks different than reality. We had two doubles, one standard, one one "superior". Standard might be clean, but so cheesy that it was hard to judge. No aircon and hot, but very beautiful view on the Lago di Garda. "Superior" had aircon, pretty noisy, balcony and looked a bit newer. It even had a fridge, however not in operation. We had some cheese that we needed to keep in cold, but at reception said, that fridges do not work in any room and that they cannot help us. I have never eaten so much cheese in the evening like in Lido. I do recommend: Do not travel with a Salmon there. If you stay there longer, the poor offer for breakfast might appear as annoying...

The receptionist was rather administrator than a service oriented person. She felt offended whenever we asked question. Be careful if you go there you cannot buy basic hygienic staff at reception!

On the other hand the location is great. Not far from Gargnano port, good stoney beach few steps away and excellent Restaurant Lido on the oposit side of Via Colletta.

Summarized: low budget with low quality, but with low expectations, you can be OK.

This is quite possibly the worse hotel I have ever stayed in (and I have stayed in 50 pence a night hotels!!)

This was a nightmare from start to finish, firstly the hotel is not in Gargnano, it is in the next village on. we had to wait over an hour for the hotel to arrange a taxi. Then when we got there the woman at reception instantly offered us another room, and as her English and general communication skills were so bad we thought she wanted to charge us another 110 euro per night on top of what we were already paying. So the alarm bells were going instantly why would anyone sell you a room and try to get you to change room before you even get into the room. So we were shown to the room, which was really a single room with no air con, the decor, was horrible, the furniture cheap and worn out. but we though we are only here 2 nights, the area is nice lets live with it. when we got back to the hotel after a meal it was so hot in there that we could not sleep, so we went downstairs to ask for the upgrade, we were willing to pay whatever it was to get a nights sleep. However what we experienced was the most horrible attitude I have ever been subjected to, the woman from reception instantly went on the defensive no doubt as it was time for her to go home, she started saying that I was not able to read as well as showing us that she did not want to help us at all. I have never in my life seen someone with such a bad attitude towards customers in my life. she got so bad we said we would not be staying a second night and would leave in the morning, she instantly told us to pay right away, we said we would pay in the morning as is normal, to which amazingly she threatened to call the police!!!

This hotel could be a nice budget hotel however the attitude of this woman if you have any problems or issues will give this hotel a very bad reputation. So my advice is to stay away and my advice to the hotel is get some friendly staff who can communicate properly with her guests, and treat them as guests not something that is stuck to the bottom of her shoe. A real shame, we left the area in the morning, I hope the area does not lose tourists just because of this one ignorant person with a very bad attitude.

we stayed at this hotel in Summer 2004 for a weekk. It is an absolute gem. Full board is an incredibly good deal, with superb food at a bargain price. The hotel was reently renovated and is on the edge of lake ledro. The rooms at the front have great views ovcer the lake.
