My husband and I stayed here for 8 days during September. The hotel is on the hill above the lake. We loved being in between the lake and the old town as there was a choice of restaurants. We are glad we had our car but it was possible to get around using the ferries on the lake. Our room... More

My wife and I (both 35) have just finished an 8 night stay in Villa Sofia. Would highly recommend this hotel. The hotel is very charming with beautiful surrounding gardens which encompass the wonderful pool area. Pool was always quiet and relaxing during our stay with no issues getting a sun lounger. We got upgraded to a superior room as... More

My husband and I are on the last day of our 2 week honeymoon at Villa Sofia and we have enjoyed every minute. Location - perfect, if you want a quiet, peaceful hotel. It's a 5 minute walk to the quaint old town up the hill, and a 5 minute walk down the hill to the lakeside (which has a... More

We received a warm and friendly welcome and had our room upgraded. We were in a small annex just to the side of the main hotel and had a lovely big room with a Juliet balcony. The bed was large and comfortable and there was lots of wardrobe space and a fridge. The bathroom was lovely too with every facility... More

In a quiet location but minutes from the waterfront and ferries etc. We were highly impressed and satisfied with our stay. Breakfast on the terrace was outstanding. Very nice pool and beautiful garden. For a quiet hotel in a delightful setting, we thoroughly recommend the Villa Sofia

Visited Lake garda for 4 nights with a toddler. The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. In the last day, we asked to keep the room until 6 pm because our son got ill, they gave us the room for the extra hours for free

Although we only spent one night at the Hotel Villa Sofia (to see a gig at the nearby Anfiteatro), it made a very positive impression on us and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Our room was large, clean and quiet, and we appreciated the immaculate cot bed made up for our toddler (who stayed for no extra charge).... More

Really enjoyed our stay in the Villa Sofia, Gardone Riviera, which is ideally located midway between the ‘old town’ and the water front. Gardone Riviera is a relatively quiet resort with limited shopping but an excellent array of restaurants which suited us fine. The restaurants are accessed via a relatively short walk either up to the ‘old town’ or down... More
