“Excellent Garda Experiance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

We booked this hotel based on its reviews and we were not disapointed. From first ariving we were welcomed with excellent service. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and dinner at the restaurant was a real treat. Great food, excellent local wines and efficent service at a reasonable price. Great location, within walking distance to town and more great resturants! I loved our stay and will definately be back again.

I've stayed at the Villa Rosa three times over the past 4 years and can honestly say it's one of the best hotels I've stayed in. We've stayed in several locations around lake Garda and this hotel is immaculate and serene in every way. Coupled with its perfect location right on the lake front, you shouldn't hesitate to book.

If you have a car, there's a small private car park, plus an underground secure garage. the Villa Rosa is perfectly located if you want to explore the rest of the towns around the lake. It's also less than an hour from Verona airport (BA flight) or about half an hour from Brescia (Ryanair fly in to here).

Breakfast in the restaurant is lovely, good choice and again, what a fantastic view out of the large windows across to the lake.

The private pool area is immaculate, with comfortable sun loungers. We've only ever stayed in the standard rooms which face out to the side of the hotel. We've always ground theses are very quiet as they are facing away from the lake and the gardens& pool areas.

A previous review said the rooms are simply furnished... Well I'd describe the whole hotel as modern, contemporary serenity at its very best. The hotel is family owned and they've taken great care to design every aspect to impress- if you're in two minds whether to book your stay here, please don't hesitate - you'll love it! We'll be staying here again this year, this time half board so we can make the most of what is a gem of Lake Garda.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the cheaper standard rooms at the side - they are quiet and still very moder...

We stayed at VillaRosa two years in a row with our small children and found the hotel staff to be superb. The location was super, being a short walk from the village centre. Food was amazing and the restaurant staff very quickly comprehend what you like and what your requirements are, which is really helpful when you have two children under the age of 5. Hotel was spotless at all times and I must say the most attentive staff that we have encountered in our 7 years travelling to Italy. A pleasure to stay in. We look forward to going back!

My wife and i stayed at the hotel for one week in June. The hotel was above our expectations. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Good food and the rooms were clean and bright. The location of the hotel is good, only a short walk to the centre of DDG. We would recommend this Hotel and confirm the rating of No 1 as being correct.

We spent a long weekend with friends and found the hotel just to our satisfaction. Minimalist decor but friendly service from attentive staff. Clean and bright - good breakfast and a short stroll from the town. Wi-fi should be free.

It's located 5minutes walking distance from Desenzano center, No problems with the parking, i liked it. The front desk is very polite and professional even at night shift. It should have been renovated recently. Nice lobby with a decent bar and restaurant.

The rooms are just o.k. I was expecting more spirit or warmer decoration but it was just simple and comfortable.
