Just stayed a few days in this hotel. The service, specially the reception stuff and the Maitre in the restaurant were outstanding! Everybody was so attentive and friendly all the time. The room was also very clean and nice. The price level overall off course quite high. The food in the restaurant was ok but nothing too special. The Pool and lake access excellent. Lounge chairs right on the lake with fantastic view. To arrive by car in the hotel you have to pass through the very narrow streets of center Sirmione... quite an adventure!

Hotel Continental is a medium sized modern hotel on the western shore of Sirmione old town. It looks a little concrete-block like from the outside, but inside the rooms are modern, spotlessly clean, and many have good sized balconies with full or partial view of the lake. The bedrooms all seem to be a decent size, and the housekeeping is efficient. The staff are very friendly, the service excellent, and the food is good. Breakfast consists of scrambled or boiled eggs, fried prosciutto, rather pale sausage, and a decent range of cold items.

There are plenty of sun loungers around the main pool and on the lakeside decking. There is a second, sulphur thermal pool, which children are not allowed to use. There are no sun umbrellas in this area and the loungers here have small head shades.

The hotel is about 7 minutes walk from the old town, which is absolutely full of restaurants and bars. It is very busy, and no cars are allowed apart from taxis and bone fide visitors staying at hotels in the old town. The ferry landing stage is within the old town, 10 minutes walk from the hotel, with connections to many other lakeside towns.

We arrived on a late Saturday to Verona, and took a taxi to Sirmione, which cost around 80 Euro. We had to wait around 45 minutes for a taxi at the airport, and it may be worth getting a pick-up from the hotel to avoid this wait. The hotel arranged a return for 85 Euro. The journey time is about 50 minutes, 10 of which are spent getting through the old town.

Altogether we thought the hotel a very good option for this location.

We cannot rate the Hotel Continental high enough. The previous review is spot on. Vincenzo and his team of waiters were of the highest quality. Especially Giuseppe and Francesco. Both couldn’t do enough for you without being intrusive. The BBQ night celebrating the end of the Summer in Italy was superb. The staff worked so hard and food was stunning! Thank you Giavanni and your amazing hotel for a truly perfect holiday.

A great hotel with great views of Lake Garda but more than the hotel the staff is exceptional. I have stayed in very nice hotels all over the world but rarely find a staff as nice and welcoming as the staff here. We dined one night in the hotel restaurant and while I generally avoid hotel restaurants the food was exceptional as well as the service. Please visit them

Highly recommended for the location, quality of service, swimming pool, thermal pool and spa facilities. The hotel manager Giovanni, the head waiter Vincenzo and their team are all consummate professionals. The hotel's lakeside restaurant serves wonderful food and wine with a sense of style and a varied menu each day. Our bedrooms were clean, cool and minimalist in style, as well as being spacious and well equipped; including large balconies with views of Lake Garda. The location is perfect; it is at the tranquil Northern end of historic Sirmione, only a few minutes' walk from the extremely busy streets and traditional Gelateria and cafes. The castle, Roman villa and the waterfront are all worth a visit. We caught ferries to the picturesque lakeside towns of Bardolino and Salo. The hotel also has complementary bicycles for use by guests and we enjoyed a 15km round trip through the Laguna vineyards and other lake resorts, mainly on cycle paths. Finally, the hotel has its own jetty from which you can take a swim in the clean and soothing water of Lake Garda!
