About Hotel Plaza

Situated in a great position overlooking the harbour and lake, the Hotel Plaza Hotel offers basic accommodation in an ideal location for exploring all of Lake Garda.

The rooms have a bit of a classical feel to them, and feature en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, satellite TV’s, in-room safes, minibars, work desks and telephones. Some rooms have views over Lake Garda.

Reception is open limited hours and can help with local information, while free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property.

A basic breakfast buffet is served in the airy dining room, while reception staff will be happy to offer great local dinning recommendations for the other meals.

The Hotel Plaza Hotel is right on the lakefront promenade, and barely 100 yards from the small harbour, from where ferries to other spots on Lake Garda can be boarded. Verona airport is 21 miles to the east.

Positive Reviews

Good central location

This was perhaps the most commonly mentioned positive feature. While there were some issues with noise, guests nonetheless loved the convenience of being in a relatively central position. The ferry to Sirmione could be caught just steps away, and the town centre, with its cafes, restaurants and bars was not much further.

Staff were friendly and helpful

The staff at the hotel were described as very welcoming and friendly, seemingly always ready to assist guests were they could.

Rooms very clean

While there were a few complaints on the cleanliness front, by far the majority of guests found their rooms very clean on arrival, and seemed to have no complaints that they weren't kept that way for the duration of their stay.

Negative Reviews

Problems with the air conditioning

Going by the number of guest complaints, there must be something seriously wrong with the air conditioning units at the Plaza Hotel. Guest after guest said that they were essentially no use at all in the hot conditions of mid-summer, and needed to be repaired, or more likely replaced.

Very poor lake views

While the hotel doesn't strongly advertise its lake views, it does mention them. For most guests, the views in reality left a lot to be desired. The views, even from the top floor, were said to be obscured by trees and such.

Noise from the streets below

While guests did like the central position for the convenience, they paid for it by having to endure some noise at night from the streets below. They complained both of revellers and passing cars along the main road disturbing their sleep at night.
