October in Salo
Posted Nov 3, 2014
A beautiful petite (boutique?) Hotel set literally across the promenade from the picturesque Lake Garda.
Arrival process with a car a bit tricky as the hotel sits between electronic bollard access points and hotel staff language difficulties made for a frustrating arrival process. After that, despite being the quiet season, the staff were ALWAYS helpful, friendly, courteous and professional.
We requested two room, both Lake facing, and had the best of views. The rooms comfortable but no air conditioning at this time of year, and no tea or coffee facilities...also no English Speaking channels on the telly. However, the bar staff were always happy to make teas if required and breakfast was plentiful.
Plenty of restaurants nearby for food but as a guide, for four people eating out was always in the order of 100+ Euros a sitting. Expensive eating in the area, sadly.
The hotel was perfect, well located and quiet. Highly recommended - but don't expect a gym or a pool (there's a lake over the way, should you be brave!).
