Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Rosa Hotel Desenzano Del Garda
Hotel Villa Rosa - 'excellent'
We stayed for a week at Villa Rosa from 21st to 28th July 2007 and loved every minute. We cannot give a bad report about the hotel at all. Modern, very clean, (linen and towels changed every day) and very helpful staff. We paid for a junior suite with a balcony overlooking the lake and were chuffed to bits! Even the small pool never got over-crowded and we travelled peak holiday time. Breakfast was great and you can eat at the poolside at lunch time if you like although it's so close to the town, you don't really need to. Definitely recommended (for couples or families) and definitely going back!
Fantastic hotel - don't hesitate to book!
We stayed at the Villarosa hotel in Desenzano last weekend (Fri to Tuesday) July 07.
We booked the hotel, flight and car hire all separately online and saved a fortune. We we really impressed with the standard of the hotel and the location. It's right opposite the lake, just 5mins from the centre where you'll find lots of beautiful Italian buildings with ornate balconies, restaurants serving wonderful food in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The prices were really good too, not at all expensive as you'd imagine at Lake Garda. A meal with a bottle of wine (for 2) cost us around 40 Euros, well worth it.
You can drive to Venice along the A4 motorway, which will take you about 2 hours depending on traffic. Be prepared for the toll though (you can pay by cash or credit card if you want to, but make sure you get in the correct lane!).
Overall, a fantastic long weekend and we can't wait to go back again!
Un hotel fantastico: prenotate subito anche voi!
Siamo stati all'Hotel Villarosa di Desenzano lo scorso fine settimana, da venerdì a martedì - è il luglio 2007. Avevamo prenotato hotel, volo e auto a noleggio su internet separatamente, risparmiando un sacco di soldi. Siamo davvero rimasti piacevolmente sorpresi dal livello dell'hotel e dalla sua posizione. Si trova proprio sul lago, a soli 5 minuti dal centro, dove troverete tantissimi antichi palazzi italiani con i loro balconi adornati e ristoranti che servono ottimo cibo in un'atmosfera di relax. I prezzi erano inoltre molto più convenienti di quanto ci saremmo aspettati per il Lago di Garda. Un buon pasto per due con una bottiglia di vino ci è costato circa 40 euro ben spesi. Potrete raggiungere Venezia in auto con l'autostrada A4. Impiegherete circa 2 ore, a seconda del traffico. Badate però che le autostrade non sono gratuite in Italia. Potrete pagare il pedaggio in contanti o con la carta di credito, l'importante è incolonnarvi nella corsia giusta. Tutto considerato, abbiamo trascorso un fine settimana lungo fantastico e non vediamo l'ora di ritornare!
Fantastisches Hotel - buchen Sie gleich!
Wir waren vergangenes Wochenende (Freitag bis Dienstag - Juli 2007) im Villa Rosa Hotel in Desenzano.
Wir buchten Hotel, Flug und Mietauto jeweils separat im Internet und sparten eine Menge. Das Niveau des Hotels und die Lage waren beeindruckend. Es liegt direkt dem See gegenüber, nur 5 Minuten vom Stadtzentrum mit vielen wunderschönen italienischen Gebäuden mit verzierten Balkonen und Restaurants mit köstlichem Menu in einer angenehmen entspannenden Atmosphäre. Die Preise sind auch günstig, garnicht was man am Gardasee erwartet hätte. Eine Mahlzeit für zwei mit einer Flasche Wein kostete uns etwa 40 Euros, sehr preiswert.
Von Venedig dauert die Fahrt auf der A4 etwa 2 Stunden, je nach Verkehr. Vergessen Sie aber die Gebrauchsgebühr nicht. Man kann bar zahlen oder mit Kreditkarte, muss aber in der richtigen Fahrbahn sein.
Insgesamt ein fantastisches langes Wochenende. Wir freuen uns schon auf das nächste Mal!
Schönes Hotel !!!
Schönes Hotel mit nettem Personal. Super schön war das hervorragende Frühstück im Freien mit Blick auf den Gardasee. Wir haben dort nur eine Nacht verbracht, aber man kann es dort auch gut länger aushalten. Gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis.
Vor kurzem renoviert--wundervoll
Wir waren drei Paare, die zusammen reisten, und riskierten es, in diesem vor kurzem renovierten Hotel zu buchen, denn es gab seit der Neueröffnung im vergangenen April (glaube ich) noch keine Bewertungen. Es gefiel uns sehr gut hier. Die Zimmer waren modern--die Betten bequem. Schwimmbad und umliegendes Gelände waren sehr nett. Es ist ein 'grünes' Hotel, d.h. Ihre Schlüsselkarte wird in einen Schlitz innerhalb Ihres Zimmers eingesteckt, damit die Lichter und der Fernseher angeschaltet bleiben. Jedes Zimmer hat Balkon, Minikühlschrank, nettes Badezimmer und Flachschirmfernseher. Frühstück ist recht gut - es wird von 7 Uhr bis 10 Uhr morgens serviert: Käsesorten, Schinkenarten, Yoghurt, Getreideflocken, Eier zum Kochen, viele süße Sachen, Säfte und eine tolle Kaffeemaschine! Das Hotel hat eine sehr hübsche Terasse/Veranda auf der Seeseite, mit Tischen und Stühlen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich. Man kann kostenlos im Freien parken oder für 5 Euros pro Tag in der Untergrundgarage. Das Hotel ist nur durch eine enge Straße vom See getrennt. Es gibt viele Restaurants und Läden, zu denen man ohne Problem zu Fuß gehen kann. Wir waren sehr gerne hier.
Travelling with 2 other couples, we took a chance on this recently renovated hotel (there had yet to be any reviews written as the hotel reopened, I believe, just last April). It was very nice. the rooms were modern--beds comfortable. The pool and area around it were very pleasant. It's a "green" hotel and your hotel key card gets inserted into a slot inside your room in order to keep the lights and tv on. Rooms all have balconies, mini fridges, nice bathrooms and flat screen tvs. The breakfast was quite good--served from 7:00 to 10:00--cheeses, hams, yogurt, cereals, eggs to cook, lots of sweets, juices, and a great coffee machine! There is a very nice terrace/porch facing the lake with tables and chairs. The staff was very pleasant--the outdoor parking is free--or you can park in the underground garage for 5 Euros a day. The lake is right across the narrow street; there are lots of restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Stylish modern hotel
Stayed at the newly modernised Villa Rosa for one week, good location in fashionable Desenzano,loads of great places to eat espiecially Al Fattore .Good for couples, very clean , nice pool, air-con rooms, car parking , one down side we had to pay for the pool towel so........ BYO!! Everything you would expect form a 4* hotel
A pleasant and quiet place in March
Stayed in the Villa Rosa with my sister for two nights (19-20 March 2005). The hotel is, like everything around Lake Garda, is trapped in the early 80's. Accordingly, decor is a little lacking (neon-blue theme has never been in) but the high ceilings and balcony were nice.
Hotel is clean, safe, quiet, right across the Lungalo street from the lake, and just a five minute walk from the center of town. The breakfast buffet is heavy on the sugary biscuit side and needs imporvement, but there is free internet in the lobby as a consolation prize.
For what we got, the hotel seemed a bit pricey to me, but its staff was always friendly and helpful (even printing off train sceduales). No serious complaints.

... also a good option. After a little walk there is a lake-shore of around 1 kilometer semi-circled around Sirmione. It has a beach-like view over 300 meters long walk-way. After it, there is a wooden bridge which goes a little over the lake. Few yards after, there is a tall rock situated right adjacent to the lake, and the view is beautiful. After the rock there is a long lake-shore, where you walk on off-white color ...
... the huge theatre where the lighting & seating were being dismantled but Dick’s legs were complaining loudly so we retreated to the residencia at about 4pm.
The locals eat dinner after 7.30 but we managed to find a place at 7 & had a good dinner before retiring at 9pm.

Up at 7 today as we wanted to see Lake Garda, at 370 sq km, the largest Italian lake, about 15k from Verona. ...
... that looked nice, but otherwise the city seemed to be dark and covered in graffiti. I decided I would just head back to the area where my hotel was, just few minutes out of the centre and find some food there. What I didn't know was the only restaurant in this are was a steakhouse. Not wanting to ride down the major road in the dark back to the centre, I decided to just have whatever was cheapest. This turned out to be something like ...
... and we mentioned Seattle, the owner said that he knows Rick Steves who indeed has visited his restaurant. Very proudly he brought out his tablet to show us the video clip. Wine was poured with a very unique aerator that is hand blown glass from Italy. When Kathy asked where we might get one the owner said he would sell us one. Another souvenir of our trip!
Verona has been a lovely stop and one to recommend for a short stay en route to Venice.
... Soraighe". Great tasting, full body with a very nice finish. We even tried to buy some locally but could not find it. There is a website for it however - www.soraighe.com.
The tour was a great way to get a first look at old Verona, a classic Italian town with a lot of old Roman construction including a remarkable arena.
We completed our wine tasting / tour of Verona about ...
