Lovely hotel right on the lake.Posted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: The hotel is right on the lake and a lake view room with balcony made the most of it. The staff were extremely friendly and the food was excellent.
Cons: We would have liked tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Location: One of the quieter resorts on the Lake, but all the other resorts are easily accessible by boat/bus. Bike hire and all kinds of water sports nearby.
We were warmly welcomed to the hotel at reception and shown around all the facilities. (At some hotels you just get your room key and directions to it) Spotless room with aircon. Help yourself buffet breakfast was excellent and so was the restaurant food. Pietro was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Best to reserve a table at busy times. We visited most of the resorts on the lake and found Brenzone to be a relaxing place to return to and wind down. The ferry stops right outside the hotel and the bus stop is a short walk away.Verona is a nice day out by bus (change at Garda). We were given vouchers at reception which give discounts on bus and ferry tickets if you buy in advance. You don't have to use the bus tickets on the day of purchase ... you validate them when you board the bus. No swimming pool, but the lake is only yards away with steps provided.

Hotel Brenzone, Brenzone, Lake Garda.Posted Oct 7, 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Hotel Brenzone. The management and staff could not have been more helpful. Our "Premier" twin room was comfortable and well appointed having been recently refurbished. Breakfast was a continental style buffet with a variety of cereals, pastries and bread. In addition there were eggs to boil, a toaster, fresh fruit, coffee and a variety of teas. Most evenings we ate in the hotel's own restaurant "Ristorante al Vapor". The menu was varied but unpretentious and the food was well presented. The restaurant staff were friendly and their service professional. “Grilled Lake Garda Whitefish“ (always filleted at the table) was a firm favourite. The prices appeared to be competitive for the area. The Hotel is situated right next to a jetty and we found this ideal for boat excursions to the other towns round the Lake. We highly recommend the Hotel Brenzone and plan to stay there again at some point.

Excellent friendly hotelPosted Sep 24, 2012
Cons: decor tired
Location: excellent lakeside
We wanted a small quiet location away from the main tourist spots but accessible to them. Brenzone fitted the bill admirably. Hotel Brenzone is a little dated, the decor being 1960's/70's but is pleasing enough and due to be refurbished this winter. For the amount we paid the hotel was excellent value and we would return and recommend to others

nice, quiet placePosted Sep 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
nice place for a romantic weekend, facing the lake and a nice, quiet garden. FOOD is fantastic, remember to eat at their restaurant in the evening, while watching the lake and the sun going down over the mountains. Enjoy!

Hotel Brenzone - great escapePosted Jun 26, 2010 on Hotels.com
Hotel Brenzone is perfectly located midway on Lake Garda, away from the maddening crowds that you would encounter in some of the larger villages. There is excellent bus service available nearby for exploring other towns. We were glad we upgraded to a room with a balcony, as the view of Lake Garda is spectacular. We were impressed with the excellent food in the restaurant & the locals said that it is the best fish restaurant in Brenzone, our fish choices were fresh & delicious. Although, there isn't a pool, there is a good size garden with lots of lounges available & several chairs right on the lake. in front of the hotel. The breakfast was huge, with a good choice of meats & cheese, boiled eggs, fruits, breads, cereal, yogurt & baked goods. The ferry stop is right out the front door. The market in Malcesine was a find. Excellent goods and prices. The cable car to Mt. Baldy is in Malcesine and we were impressed with the number of excellent (well marked) trails. Mountain pastures with cows & bells & an occasional cuckoo bird chiming in. A good restaurant at the top too, but we packed a lunch to enjoy on the trail. We were glad that we were not booked in some of the larger hotels that are all over the lake, you would miss the local charm that the experience of staying at Hotel Brenzone offers. In Balzano, about an hour & a half North, we spent an afternoon viewing Otzi, the 5,300 year old iceman, who was discovered frozen in ice with all his possessions. A fascinating exhibit worth the trip.

Brilliant staff and food was superbPosted Aug 20, 2009
The hotel location is ideal as right on the doorstep of Brenzone ferry port which gives you access to the whole of the lake. The staff were so friendly, bike hire is free although was unavailable the day that we wanted to use them but the staff went out of their way to help us - getting us a fan for the room when requested. The rooms were hot and suffered from no air conditioning but the views and setting far outweighed this. The water also needed to run for a long time to get warm in the shower. The food was brilliant and the house specials were so good that we ended up eating at the hotel 4 nights in a row

Pretty GoodPosted Sep 14, 2008
The service offered by the hotel is brilliant, with friendly and efficient staff. The views over the lake were fantastic. However, there is no privacy on the balcony (and no option but to talk to the german couple next door "taking it easy" with their 3rd bottle of wine that evening. Also, although the hotel says it has parking, in reality there are about 2 spaces which you have to pay extra for (not quite double figures) otherwise you park in the public carpark by the church, a 5 minute walk up a steep hill- not fun with bags. Overall though, a good hotel.

Can't wait to go back!Posted Aug 28, 2008
Although this hotel may not be as fancy as some of the other hotels we stayed in in Italy, it had a certain charm about it and we would definitely stay there again. My husband and I travelled around Italy for our honeymoon and used only public transport. We were slightly worried about getting to Brenzone but it was very easy. We got a train to Verona and then got a bus ticket from the office directly outside the station. The bus cost less than 5 Euros each return. We got bus number 12 (turn right as you walk out of the bus ticket office and look for the markings on the carpark. The bus is blue). The journey takes quite a while, but it takes you all along the side of the lake so there's plenty to see. Watch out for the sign on the bus for Brenzone (the driver was very helpful) and then walk down any of the little roads towards the lake. The hotel is only 5 mins from the bus stop. All the staff were very friendly and the food in the hotel restaurant was good - have the seafood or the specials as these seem to be the tastiest. There is a ferry that stops outside the hotel daily so use this to visit Riva or the other towns along the side of the lake. The only downside about this hotel was the room, which was very basic. It could perhaps do with a lick of paint and some new furnishings but this has not put us off and we can't wait to go back and go swimming again in that beautifully clean and clear water!

Pleasant quiet family run hotelPosted Oct 12, 2007
Quiet & clean hotel, friendly staff. Family run - mama rules and son serves as a waiter. Try mamas grappa, it's rocket fuel. No evening entertainment. Many Germans use the hotel. In need of a refurbishment. Disabled clientel note that public car parking is some distance uphill. If you want a quiet relaxing atmosphere to get away from it all - this one's for you.

Very Italian atmospherePosted Sep 17, 2007
This is a small family run hotel. The owners being particularly friendly. The receptionist is excellent and very friendly. We upgraded (at cost) to a room with a balcony, which was great. The room (though small) and bathroom had been re-furbished and is clean and modern. The bed was comfortable - but the pillows were NOT.The room was cleaned to a very high standard each day. Breakfast is usual continental and the machine to boil your own eggs is 'trial and error', by the end of 14 days we had mastered it?? We opted for evening meal at 15 euros each which was adequate, initially the food seemed to be 'samey', but by the end we found the food to be good. Would say though that we prefer to eat in different restaurants each night and would not do that again. Smoking is allowed in the outside restaurant which was a problem for us. Would certainly go back to the Brenzone/Vila Del Lago.
