All of the staff were very friendly and helpful, we were made to feel welcome from arriving to leaving. The rooms were well appointed and serviced every day. The Terrace overlooking harbour was a perfect place to relax. The position of the hotel is excellent, in the hub of Desenzano surrounded by a plethora of restaurants and cosy bars. I cannot recommend this hotel high enough. We will be returning withy a doubt.

Excellent position for ferry point, lovely view from front of hotel where we sat every morning for breakfast. Breakfast was a good selection, fruit varied every day. Weather was great when we were there which makes all the difference. Had a slight issue which was dealt with promptly by Alberto. Good air con. Lovely upstairs terrace to sit at and watch the world go by, you could buy drinks downstairs. Would stay here again.

Just returned from a wonderful week at the Hotel Piroscafo and we can’t recommend it highly enough! The location is absolutely beautiful overlooking the harbour. The hotel itself is immaculate and the staff are all fantastically helpful. For me personally as a coeliac, I really appreciated the excellent gluten free breakfast options which set me up for the day. I’m sure there are many great hotels in Desenzano, but on our next visit there will only be one place that we want to stay! 😊
