Hotel Garni Riviera
Ranked #10 of 19 Hotels in Gargnano
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 June 2017

Location: directly next to the port of Gargnano in the centre of this small village. 5 minutes’ walk from the "beach" to the lake. Several places to have dinner close to the hotel.

Parking: very fair parking rate of 3 €/day (€ 10,- caution) for the garage (5 min. walk but pretty full) or on several places spread over the village (map at the back of the ticket).

Room: middle size room, village side, with French balcony and air fan mounted on the ceiling. Bathroom with toilet, shower with folding door, bidet, washing stand, hair dryer. The sticker that towels are only changed every three days, is not the way it should be for a hotel in a region where guests go for swimming, hiking or biking.

Breakfast: certainly the best of the hotel is the beautiful terrace on the first floor with a wide view over the lake. For Italy the choice is more than ok and the staff is very friendly.

Price policy: no breakfast is included when booking via booking.com At the same rate IT IS when booking via the hotel's website. The breakfast is charged with EUR 5,- per person and day. It is understandable that there are some costs for the hotel in the form of provisions to booking.com but I do not think it is fair to let the guests pay for it. Also because a lot of promoting is done via booking.com (e.g. Tripadvisor gives the link to booking.com but not directly to the hotel). Even when I know how to avoid now, I will not stay here again (yes please I am waiting for the reaction of the hotel's owners having the final say!).

We stayed at this hotel on a road trip through Italy. Conveniently, we were able to store our car down the street for 3€ a day. It's best to do a quick drop off of luggage before parking! The owners are a wonderful couple that were willing to offer help and suggestions to make our stay more comfortable. The hotel is situated right on the lake and while this is not a hotel with beach access there is a terrace on an upper floor to enjoy a drink or breakfast. We did not take breakfast at the hotel, so not able to comment on the quality or assortment. From the hotel there are many restaurants and shops on the street it is located. Rooms were clean and while there is no A/C , the fan and window seemed to provide enough cooling in the room. I would gladly recommend this for a a nice holiday.

Stayed seven nights in Gargnano at this lovely little hotel on the Lake. The room was nicely furnished and had full floor opening windows looking over the lake, what a view.
Very good welcome. The breakfast was excellent and could be taken inside or as we did, outside on the covered terrace. Our room was very quiet. Gargnano itself was a lovely little village with a good selection of eating places and boats could be caught to other destinations. We were disappointed that the bus service was not more frequent at this time of year. Would certainly come back to the place and the same hotel.

Room Tip: I would definitely recommend a sea view room, as rooms at the front may be noisy.

Nice family-run hotel just next to Lake Garda. Very good breafkfast, that you can enjoy on a wonderful terrace overlooking the lake. The owner are really nice and friendly and I felt like at home. The mattresses are rather hard but that's the way I like them so that was not a problem for me. Perhaps the only drawbacks are 1. the wifi rather spotty (I was disconnected several times during light usage) and 2. doors/walls that let a lot of noise go through. But overall and excellent stay and I would go back.

Room Tip: Pick one with a view over the lake!

We were visiting the lake for a sailing event and chose this beautiful hotel based on other trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. It was perfect in every way, the owners were welcoming and friendly and most helpful - we had to leave every morning at 6.30 and they would make sure the coffee machine was on and breakfast was available. Our room was magical with dual aspect over the lake. The terrace was delightful and offered stunning views of the lake. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Corner Lake view room stunning

We arrived for some of the hottest days of the year and it seemed like our room on the side (33 - we weren't able to get a lake view, which should have been better) was the hottest. So that was the downside, but everything else was so nice that we still really enjoyed the experience tremendously. Gianfranco and Elisa were very kind hosts and the location is the best possible. Walk out your door a few steps to the marina and center of Gargnano, jump in the lake a little further on, enjoy breakfast on the lakefront terrace, it's just what you're looking for if you want the full experience of the most authentic town on Lake Garda - no McDonalds or tourist malls here.

Dear James W,
thanks for your compliments for our house. True: the days you visited us were declared by TV "heath emergency". You have been unlucky because normally we don't even need A/C. We hope to welcome you again in a fresher period. Hasta la proxima....
