service could be better
Great position in centre of town. in probably the very best part. Room adequate but a hard bed making for our worst stay in 6 weeks in Italy. Breakfast quite good and housekeeping good. Like all other hotels, restaurants, cafes etc, I’m afraid the Italians come over as unfriendly. They have no interest in making themselves pleasant. At this particular hotel, a man whom I assume is the manager, as he processes checkouts seems the worst. (Other staff at this desk at other parts of the day are better. ) A corpse would seem more lively. A big improvement here would percolate down through his staff making for a more pleasurable workplace, happier customers and perhaps even some gratuities! Smiles dont cost much.

Very nice hotel
Everything was good about the hotel - wonderful location, good service, great breakfast. The only thing I would recommend to change in the room by in which we stayed is to remove the mantle above the bed board. One can easily bang his/her head - so it was concerning.

Great hotel in the heart of Desenzano
Great position in the heart of town. A bit noisy after midnight - but we were staying over a holiday weekend, and it didn't really bother us. The local restaurants were excellent, and the hotel was close to boats. Reception staff were very efficient and called a taxi when we left. Recommend highly
