The Best Lake Garda Hotels


Lake Garda has long been a playground for wealthy Ancient Roman writers and European royalty, but today’s travelers can stay at everything from sumptuous Art Nouveau mansions to contemporary wellness retreats. There are also family friendly boutique hotels and quirky B&Bs if you prefer a more down-to-earth experience.

In the historic centre of Lazise, you can enjoy a more traditional Italian hotel experience at Casa Lady Bed and Breakfast, which has rooms with warm wood furniture and gold accents. Alternatively, choose a modern and stylish lake view suite at the new Splendido Bay Luxury Spa Resort, where you can indulge in state-of-the-art spa treatments and gaze out over the lake through floor-to-ceiling windows.

If you’re a fan of nature, a hotel with a lakeside location is ideal – particularly in the north of the region. In Torbole sul Garda, you can stay in the charming Forte Charme Hotel, which has lovely hilltop views from its terrace pool and offers free parking. The more budget friendly ’60s-era Hotel Cristina is another great option, and many of its 158 rooms have fabulous lake vistas from their private balconies.

There are plenty of hotel options with a view in the centre of Desenzano del Garda, which is well-connected by public transport and has several tourist attractions nearby. If you want to be closer to the other lakes, Malcesine is a good choice, and there are a few hotels with stunning lake views there too. best lake garda hotels
