We enjoyed our stay in this Hotel. Nothing extraordinary just very simple Hotel. The main reason we booked - they offer HB basis. As you know is not very popular in Italy. Also we were travelling with 4 years old child and HB was very convenient. Location is great, not far from town centre and ferry (it just 10 minutes... More

Stayed here for 5 nights with my family. Love coming to lake Garda. The hotel it's self is nice and peaceful. Lovely view of the lake. Hotel is quiet so it's nice to have an escape. The beds were not the most comfy of things. Shower was powerful and cannot fault the cleanliness of the place. Each morning bedding changed,... More

A pit stop trough Italy. Don't know if I would stay here again. We were lucky to get good rooms with a view to the Garda lake. If not then it would probably be quite dull. We found it difficult to find. Our GPS didn't really find it. We had to ask around. Decent breakfast.

Hotel Smeraldo itself has good features, but it is, in effect, run from Hotel LaPaul, which is across the road from Smeraldo. Our room in Smeraldo was quite comfortable and very well-serviced. Breakfast was perfectly acceptable. But facilities were very limited; the "swimming pool" was actually a children's paddling pool, which clearly had not been maintained, and other aspects around...

Mr philip_bi, I understand you are disappointed for the problem on check out about the dinner bill but, it's normal we just have to control, there was a little mistake and nobody was rude with you, it' s a pity that for this silly fact the dinner becames "revolting" and the service "very poor".

we were given a ground floor with a view of a wall. It was dark and depressing. There were two bedrooms and a wet room bathroom that flooded with my first shower. It's only an annexe for the La Paul and isn't staffed. Breakfast is the only time when one member of staff is present. The hotels were full and... More

In this location I would highly recommend a room with lake side view, either that or get a room in it's sister hotel La Paul. Our room was not lake side, and over looked the busy main road into Sirmione. It was also dark and gloomy with no poor check in and no information about facilities. Breakfast was self service...

A little 3 stars hotel with very nice balconies with the view of the lake Grada, nice HB meals, excellent room #452 which has the best position at its third floor, very quite and isolated.

Hotel Smeraldo is a fantastic budget hotel. It is within walking distance of the Old Town where Sirmione Castle is located and lots of restaurants. The room was very clean and it was cleaned daily. I would definitely recommend paying a bit extra to get the Lake View as it is beautiful to wake up to in the morning. Hotel... More

The room ok, the breakfast was ok, the sea view was great and it was quiet. What else do you want... pools and sea access (shore and go in/out for swimming) are not really excellent. I was allowed to use the access of hotel lapaul, but did not find the ladder at the end of gangplank very appealing.
