      Historical Traveler Reviews Admiral Hotel Villa Erme Desenzano Del Garda

      Very Difficult to fault

      from

      The hotel erme was one we picked because of its location on the lake, its relative closeness to the Brescia Airport and the reviews on this website.

      On all counts it proved to be a good hotel.

      Its location is not directly on the lake, it has a road between it and the shore but this is well pointed out on the website and proved no major issue at all.

      It was a very very clean and well appointed hotel, in fact I have been in far worse four star's. The evening meal was good, if not fantastic, but it was local food well prepared and presented well by curtious staff.

      The staff are well worth a mention as they were very helpful. Not only did we get a hand addressed confirmation via snail mail, they also kept us upto dates with Air stirkes that may have effected our journey.

      Around the hotel there is the fanastic village/town of Rivelleto, truley lovely, with narrow streets and friendly bars.

      Also worth a mention is the underground car park, very useful to get your car off the road and out of harms way.

      If I had one bad point to make, it would be that the breakfast was a little let down, especially the coffee which was from a machine, and tasted truly awful even though they had a wonderful espresso machine behind the bar. If they used that instead it would transform the experience.

      But not to end on a low note, this is a great hotel to use as a base for touring the lake and the surrounding parts of Italy. We got around the lake in a day, with nice stops along the way, and even got down to Modena with the good road connections.

      Top stay.

      Absolute Pleasure

      from

      Booked this hotel because of the other reviews on Trip Advisor and we were really glad we used the advice. The rooms are beautifully furnished and absolutely spotlessly clean. The bathrooms are superb and they even have the power showers with full body jets (great fun!!). Although the hotel is a little outside Desenzano this wasn't a problem because the hotel has bikes which you can hire free of charge for up to 3 hours which are great to explore the surrounding area. There are restaurants, shops and bars in the local area, especially good was the Pizzaria on the corner. Certainly on of the best hotels we stayed in whilst travelling aroung Italy.

      Excellent standard 3 star hotel !

      from

      If you are looking for a comfortable , friendly and well run hotel from which to explore the Lake Garda region then this is it. Whilst the bedrooms are perhaps a bit dull due to the maroon coloured traditional curtains and bedspreads etc they are otherwise spotlessly clean with laminated flooring and nice sized marble tiled bathrooms with shower only ( no bath ). Breakfasts are more than adequate with a good selection of fruits, cereals, meats ,cheeses , breads etc. We specially requested some bran cereals which were on the buffet the next morning ! The hotel has good on site parking which makes it an ideal place from which to explore by car and a nice cozy rooftop terrace and jacuzzi for some sun and relaxation. A free laptop PC connection is available for guests in the lobby where the lovely Beatrice and her staff could not be more attentive and friendly with good advice for local tours, visits etc. This is a good quality 3 star hotel which we would strongly recommend.

      Cold pool and frosty waiter!

      from

      Bit out of town - 30 mins walk. Across a busy road from lake. Room nice hotel generally clean and high standard. Fitness equipment poor. Pool not heated and much too cold to use (in April). Food overpriced (but Rossi & Rossi pizzeria next door is excellent value and very friendly - turn right out of entrance and on the next corner).

      We weren't very impressed with serving staff in restaurant - there seems to be some confusion about when breakfast is served, as the waiter hissed at as and started to remove the food when we arrived! Food was of a good quality though for breakfast and dinner. Dinner is overpriced, and limited choice and has to be eaten between 7:30 and 8:30 pm.

      This was our first visit to Italy. I would not visit at this time of year again as it was a bit cold and wet and misty. We travelled around the lake and I would recommend further north for more dramatic vistas and pretty villages. Bardolino, Malcesine, Riva are all very pretty. Sirmione is also nice. Gardaland is good value and was quiet at the time we went.

      Beautiful hotel

      from

      We spent a couple of days in this hotel at the south western area of Lago di Garda a few weeks ago. The premises are beautiful, spotless, with state-of-the-art appliances. It is built upon an old villa, but it has been refurbished so that it looks brand new and stylish at the same time. Buffet breakfast was excellent, and the staff was friendly and useful. Prices were very reasonable.

      Fantastic start to our Lake Garda Tour

      from

      I booked this hotel initially as it was close to where the Ryanair bus drops you off rather than a lengthy journey all on the first day. The photos and feedback looked promising but the reality is even better. Whilst the freshness and cleanliness gives the hotel a modern feel there is so much character throughout the hotel. The facilities are such that you don't want to leave the hotel to explore but if you do bicycles are offered by reception. We did walk into Desenzano Del Garda with our wheeled suitcases so if you are fit or want to become so, do it, its a lovely walk.

      The breakfast was good and extremely varied.

      We would definately stay again on our next visit to the area.

      Just Wonderful - excellent value

      from

      What a delightful hotel! On our travels through Italy in September 2004 this hotel was by far the best of the six we had booked online - and the cheapest. I have trouble with lifts but my problem was dealt with courteously and speedily. Being a small hotel it keeps the 'cosy' imagine.

      We shall be returning soon. Just want to sit on the balcony, have breakfast then stroll down to the locale to spend some time. I could fault nothing in this hotel and as a hotelier myself I am most critical of other businesses.

      Very good hotel

      from

      My family and I stayed in the Admiral Hotel for a week in mid July 2004. We found the staff to be unfailingly pleasant, the rooms spotless, well maintained and effectively air-conditioned. The hotel pool, solarium and other facilities were good while breakfast was varied and very good. We ate dinner once in the hotel during our stay and felt that (notwithstanding the competitive pricing), the menu was very limited.

      The Admiral Hotel is 25 minutes walk from Desenzano, about 20 minutes drive from Sirmione and approximately one hour's bus ride away from Verona.

      The hotel front desk staff speak very good English and are exceptionally helpful and courteous. We would definitely recommend the Admiral Hotel and would have no hesitation about staying there when we return to Lake Garda.

      Great Hotel

      from

      Lovely hotel in great position near Lake Garda. The rooms were a good size, extremely clean and well equiped. The continental breakfasts were wonderful but the dinners a little disappointing but good value for money at 15 Euros for 3 courses. The swimming pool and jacuzzi were super.Staff extremely helpfull. Secure free car parking.

      Much more than I expected

      from

      Great value for money!. The hotel is in a perfect location, close to the Garda Lake. In spite of the hotel is not big, facilities are superb. Ask for the open air spa at the reception desk or the saturday night menu. The friendly staff provides a very good service. When you book a double room, ask for the 215. It is not facing to the lake, but you will enjoy at the balcony. We enjoyed here for 5 days during March 2004 and I will definitely stay here again.

      This part of our adventure consisted of a 56kms ride to Riva del Guarda which is the ferry port at the top of Lake Garda. The path started out flat but around Lake Loppio was fairly hilly but not for too long. There is a magnificent ride down to picturesque Torbolone where crowds were enjoying the Lake Garda in the bright sunshine. We rode around to ...

      An Unexpected Gem

      With a short mileage to
      cover today, we would make the most of it and visit Verona. Our fist
      stop was a Harley Davidson dealer on the outskirts of the town. It
      was a pretty big dealership with plenty of Harley branded bits –
      not just bikes but barbecues, chairs and all sorts of expensive stuff
      for the enthusiast. It began to rain a bit as we rode away into the
      city, which was busy but not manic. We managed to find a motorcycle
      parking ...

      Desanzano & Sirmione

      ... When it turned up, it was a nearly new catamaran
      almost as quick as the fast cat from the day before. Arriving back
      in Sirmione, the weather soon began to brighten up and it turned into
      a lovely day again. We took our time looking in the shops and
      stopping for a couple of beers in a tiny bar. Jayne bought me a
      magnificent Fossil watch in one of the shops. We walked from one end
      of the town and back again, taking in ...

      With loads to pack into
      the day, we set off early to catch the first fast ferry of the day.
      In fact, we were early for breakfast and had to wait for the
      restaurant to open. The walk into town had been described as two
      kilometres, however as the time went by and it looked increasingly as
      though we would not make the sailing time, it was obvious that it was
      over two miles from the hotel. Our first impression of Sirmione as
      we arrived at the medieval city gates ...
