Room very clean, comfortable. Breakfast delicious! Wonderful views from the room. Staff fantastic. Hotel Manager, it's style icon, and on to this gentleman and perfect man on the place. I recommend the hotel to everyone!

Easy to get to, great location just a few minutes into the main pedestrian and lakeside area of Desenzano for shopping and evening socialising. Underground parking opposite the hotel - ideal - and good rooms with friendly staff. The roof terrace is amazing - breakfast looking across Lake Garda to Sirmione and north up the lake to the Alps - stunning! We stayed here for the Mille Miglia and watched the cars come through as well as driving into Brescia a short hop away. Verona is an easy drive or train ride too, so the hotel is an ideal location. Sensibly priced.

We stayed 4 nights at Hotel Bonotto. The rooms and premises were very nice. The staff all exceptional and friendly. There is a nice glass enclosed rooftop patio where breakfast is served. A very good variety of breakfast choices . The hotel is located just a small walk to all the shops and restaurants. Be sure to take a ferry ride to Sirmione for a day of walking, shopping, and exploring the Castello that is located there. If we have the opportunity to come back to this area we will stay here definitely.

The hotel is on a busy road but our room was sound proofed and didn't pose a problem. The rooms are very clean and tidy although a little small but that isn't too much of an issue. The staff were polite and welcoming. The breakfast is basic but ok and the views from the roof top are spectacular. I would stay here again just for the location to the town of desanzano. We had a lovely time.

We had the best long weekend in Desenzano del Garda - made even better by the awesome hospitality of Hotel Bonotto!! Breakfast, the views and clean rooms were perfect - great location to restaurants, lake and the train station! Easy!

Hotel Bonotto staff were very welcoming and friendly. We arranged a late check in of 2.00am with no problem and no issues. 5 minutes walk to town centre and 2 minutes walk to the lake side. Breakfast was very yummy and was located on the top of the hotel with a great view of the lake. Recommend to all!!

We stayed for 6 nights - me, my husband and our 6 year old daughter. I have to say that this was a perfect hotel for us. It was central to the town, literally a 5 minute walk to the centre which is essential when you have little people! We had a triple room which was great - beds were very comfortable (even my husband liked them and he is fussy!), the room was spotless and had all the little bits that makes travelling easier - toiletries, plenty of fresh towels every day, fridge, safe. The only thing I missed was having tea/coffee facilities in the room but maybe this is quite an English thing. Some reviews have complained about noise but I have to disagree - we found our room very peaceful. The breakfast was lovely - anything you could want from pastries, fruit, yoghurt etc to pancetta, eggs (we loved the DIY boiled eggs), sausages and wide range of hot drinks. Everything about our stay was just so easy and pleasant due to the staff - every member of staff from the cleaning staff to Mr Bonotto were so incredibly friendly, welcoming and helpful - our 6 year old was absolutely spoilt by attention (and she loved every minute). Parking was easy - we always had a free place right next to the hotel. If you like a personal touch, then this hotel is perfect. The views from the hotel were magnificent - we made use of the rooftop terrace for a few lazy games of cards and it was beautiful to look around across all of Desanzano. There are so many gorgeous places to go around the area - the boat service to the Garda towns was really straightforward and easy to use and not too expensive either - 6 euro return to Sirmione for example. In fact, we found prices reasonable overall - meals in the town were good value, around 8euro for a pizza. I never usually bother writing reviews for places, however this hotel really makes an effort to make you feel at home. We would book here again in a shot and have been recommending it to all our friends.

Hotel Bonotto is located on a heavily trafficked road - ok can be worser. The City of Desenzano can therefore be reached within a short walk. The interior of the hotel is widely frozen in a style of the eighties. Beds are hard, but this is Individual opinion. Bath is also in a style about like two or three decades ago. Breakfast is not worth to mention. For short Term stay without using the offered breakfast acceptable.

There is nothing not to like aboutHotel Bonotto. The staff are friendly, helpful & nothing is to much trouble for them. The hotel is situated very close to the lake shore, the view from the roof terrace is amazing. Breakfast is continental which won't suite everyone but we found it more than adequate. There is limited parking at the hotel but there is free & secure parking for which there is a charge nearby. I would not hesitate to recommend Hotel Bonotto.

We arrived at the Hotel Bonotto, which is located in Desenzano Del Garda. We booked a lake view room and the view from the balcony was worth every penny. We didnt think we could get a better view, we were in for a big suprise, the real show stopper is when you go for breakfast as there is a panoramic view over the lake, it is such a beautiful peaceful setting! The hotel was in a perfect location, it’s a 1 minute walk to the lake, 2 minute walk to the town, 2 minute walk to the harbour and 10 minute walk to the train station. (approx. 8.50 Euros in a taxi to the train station if you have heavy bags!) Hotel Bonotto:
