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!).
