good base for short breakPosted May 7, 2013
Location: Close to the lake and nearby restaurants
Hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful. Good position close to the lake front, only a short walk to restaurants etc.

Great HotelPosted Sep 18, 2012
Pros: The breakfasts selection was very good. A family run business where they really try to please.
Cons: Loose knob on the airconditioning unit - picky but there was no other issues.
Location: No view of the lake but 50 yards down the road and you are there. Town is also very close.
Cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. Staff are brilliant and speak perfect English as well as most other languages. Position is very good with a small car park just off the main road. We would definitely go here again, the staff are so helpful and although the room was not modern and brand new it was so clean.

Good value for locationPosted Aug 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Don't be put off by the 3 star rating. The only thing the hotel misses is a lake view but if you're like us and are looking for a base close to everything to be out and about all day - this is the place to stay. Very welcoming staff and overall a good experience. Just a short walk to the centre.

Great hotel in good locationPosted Jul 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
Really enjoyed my stay at the Astoria hotel. The room was large, airy, very clean and had excellent air conditioning and a ceiling fan! The owners really made the stay though - very friendly and helpful and answered all of my questions. Fantastic breakfast, much better than the average. Quiet location just off the road near the lake - note to visitors: google maps puts this further up the hill, it is in fact off Via dei Caporali. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel - would definitely stay again.

Lake GardaPosted Sep 26, 2011
Rooms basic but clean and functional. Staff all very helpful with lots of good local tips and advice. Free wifi very useful for keeping in touch with home. Free internet access also available at reception. Buffet breakfasts in the morning with good selection of food catering for all. The hotel is about 20-25 minutes walk from Desenzano railway station with high speed and local train connections to Venice (90 min) and Milan (60-90 min). The town is the largest on the lake and whilst not as picturesque as others on the lake, best location to use as a base for exploring the whole region given the excellent port and rail links. Can catch boats to virtually anywhere on lake as the port is the main hub for the lake.

Perfect hotel in DesenzanoPosted May 22, 2011
Our stay at Hotel Astoria was the highlight out of our 10 day trip through France and Italy. The owner, Gisberto, is an absolute delight and exactly who you want to greet you at the start of a vacation. You can tell right from the start that he cares about his hotel and the guests who stay there. The rooms were very comfortable, the bathrooms were pristine and the rooftop garden was absolutely adorable. We took a bottle of wine to the rooftop - which Gisberto kindly opened for us - and enjoyed a great view of the lake. Breakfast is provided each morning and out of this world. Such a great spread and much more than I've ever seen included in the price of a hotel stay. Hotel Astoria is in a great location, just a few minutes from the ferries and about 20 minutes from the train station. From the hotel, everything in Desenzano seems very accessible. Also a great starting point to take day trips to nearby towns, which we did by boat. We visited Sirmione per Gisberto's recommendation and loved every minute of it. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone looking for an affordable and clean place to stay in Desenzano. I only wish that we could go back more often because we enjoyed the experience so much!
