Its ok if your short on cashPosted Jul 10, 2012
Pros: Air conditionng
Cons: The Owners rude behavior
Location: Sirmione is beautiful, and during the summer really hot, so that airconditioning is good, take a big group to the lake, its better that way
The Staff for the most part was helpful and nice, the Owner however, she was not. In the email i received after booking the hotel, we were informed of a 12pm check out, My fiance even asked them the day before which time we should check and was told 12 pm. However at 11 we got a call from the owner telling us to get out of the hotel, and then she proceeded to argue with us that everyone else and the email had not told us it was a 12 pm check out. Really quite rude. The Room was small, it had air conditioning which is a plus, the bed wasnt overly comfortable. As a I said the staff for the most part was nice, breakfast wasnt the worst. But the owners behavior mixed with the small rooms negated any positive the workers had on our stay. Overall I would recommend this hotel for a cheap place to stay in Sirmione, but I would avoid the owner, and keep in mind even though they say a 12pm check out be ready to leave at 11.

Decent place, not the best location though.Posted Oct 2, 2011 on Hotels.com
Staff were friendly and very helpful, and the breakfast was great. The only issue with this place was the location, situated a good 40min+ from the main town it was quite a walk to get there. Also our room was located right next to the swimming pool with bathers inches from our window, basically this meant that we could never open the shutters, and it was also pretty noisy. Off-road parking was ok, but very tight and our car actually bottomed-out on the way down the ramp!

You can count on the Abacus!Posted Sep 26, 2011
I got a great deal through Expedia for this 3 star in Sirmione, Lake Garda. The hotel was great value considering other 3 star hotels in the area were double and triple the cost and often more for a 10 night stay in September. The hotel was a 2-3 minute walk from Via Colombare with it's cafés and restaurants, and a 10 minute walk from the lakeside itself. Plus it was easy to get to other areas around the Lake and to Verona and Mantova. If you're keen on cycling like me, there was a great bike shop called 'il Ciclista' opposite the hotel renting out road bikes and mountain bikes, or ready to repair your own bike if you had taken it with you. The hotel was what I expected of a 3 star in terms of fixtures and fittings, but the service of the incredibly friendly, warm and helpful staff was way beyond what I expected. This also made for a relaxed, unstuffy atmosphere. The Abacus team were always ready to help with a smile and advice on how to reach other locations, where to buy bus tickets etc. Great value and excellent service. I would definitely recommend a stay at Hotel Abacus.

Comfortable Hotel in ColombarePosted Aug 30, 2011
If you are looking for a hotel close to the hub of Sirmione, then this is not the hotel for you. Hotel Abacus is in Colombare, about 30 mins by foot from Sirmione (there are many buses, and a taxi-boat point nearby) - the walk is not unpleasant and the Hotel is located in a nice area with many good restaurants and a supermarket close by. The rooms are spacious, though the ensuite is compact, the staff are friendly and the hotel well tended. The hotel is very good value and would recommend for small groups and families.

good value for money i supposePosted Jul 30, 2011 on Hotels.com
The man at reception that greeted us was friendly and helpful. He informed us that the bikes are free and we wish we used them because the walk into Sirmiome was 35 minutes (even though the reception man told us it was 20 minutes). We had a balcony which was a nice surprise and the shower was good. The breakfast was OK. Although when we asked for more boiled eggs they rushed to get them to us as quickly as possible and forgot to cook them fully! I guess you could say it was an honest mistake. Overall we would recommend it but don't expect any luxuries!

OK room standard - but couldnt use internetPosted Jul 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel is ok for a short stay considering the price. Aircond either on or off, blowing right down on the bed. Friendly staff. Didnt dare to use the lift, as it could suddenly take a "jump" and made a funny noise. The hotel offers a strange sort of internet. According to the hotel information you log in to a website and should only pay 1 EUR, but when the site asks for your credit card details there is no information about how much they will draw from your account. I wouldnt recommend any one to use it. However, if you can live without internet access (but who can these days) then you are ok.
