Enjoyed a delightful holiday with my husband and a lovely stay at the hotel. Clean, air conditioned, well maintained room, immaculate bathroom - faultless!
Breakfasts were delightful and were enjoyed in the company of the birds surrounding the marina.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends.

We recently stayed for 9 nights for our honeymoon and we cannot praise it enough. The staff were welcoming, friendly and always helpful. The room itself was modern and had everything we needed. The main plus point of this hotel is it's location - the view from our room was stunning, the train station is a short walk way so is perfect for day trips to Venice, Verona and Milan and the you catch the ferry from just round the corner which makes exploring the lake very easy. We would definitely recommend staying here.

My daughter and myself have just returned from a stay at Hotel Piroscafo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel. Our room was lovely and the view from the balcony was stunning. We enjoyed our breakfast of a morning and the location to the ferry to get around Lake Garda was ideal. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Recommend room with a balcony overlooking harbour

We have just returned following staying at the hotel Piroscafo for 2 nights. This is an absolute gem to find. It is in such a perfect location and easy to find.

We arrived from Verona on the train. From the train station at Desenzano, it was a 15 minute walk downhill.

Our room was lovely. Newly refurbished and very modern and minimalistic. We didn't have a view but this was no issue. My only complaint was that the pillows were rock hard, however this never spoilt things.

There were toiletries available in the bathroom. The hairdryer was not that efficient. I would advise taking a travel hairdryer that will be more powerful. Rooms were quite thin and you could here some noise from next door, but once again not enough to stop us from sleeping.

Breakfast was served from 07.00. Breakfast was continental and was lovely. Plenty of choices to choose from. On the first level there is a terrace that served drinks, unfortunately we never used this due to the weather.

Everything you want to see is within close walking distance, with plenty of restaurants to choose from.

For the price of the hotel, you cannot go wrong. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. If we come back to Garda I will definitely stay here for a base to see more of the lakes.

After our recent visit to lake Garda 3 family members booked this hotel for 3 nights with a total cost about €350. We arrived after midnight and around 11am the following day we received some devastating news from home resulting in 3 family members having to urgently return to the UK. Upon check out the manager informed them that they would have to pay at least 2 nights. When the bill was finalised they had been charged €300 of the €350 for the room for having the room for 12 hours. The manager was informed of the sad circumstances but still insisted on the €300 payment. I was absolutely appalled at the total lack of empathy and understanding. Shame on you Hotel Piroscafo!!!!!!!!

Dear Madam,
it's a shame you don't understand we followed the right way: check out was at 1:30 p.m of the second day of staying, so guests
payed for two nights, EUR 268,02 instead EUR 402,90 (be correct, please). This is absolutely right: we amended the last night.
Guests agreed this solution and payed the bill without problems.
Unfortunately there was a person rude and aggressive, not our guest, coming from outside to collect them, that threatened us to write a bad review for that....
God bless You, Madam.
