If you are looking for a Lake Garda hotel where the family run atmosphere is more than friendly, the Hotel Dogana in Italy may just be the best hotel selection. Located in an historic building dating back to 1720, the Hotel Dogana by Lake Garda was once used as Austrian barracks and, though renovated, has tried to maintain its cultural and historic integrity.

Guests staying at this 3-star Lake Garda hotel can enjoy a lakeside walk just minutes away from the hotel, after which a meal at the hotel's Dogana Restaurant is appropriate, where guests can feast on homemade pasta and fine wines. Take a quick ride to the neighboring area of Sirmione, where you can relax in the renowned thermal baths or visit some of the major cities such as Verona, Mantova, and Venice. Onsite parking is free.

Other onsite amenities include a seasonal outdoor pool, a conference room, coffee in the lobby, and free WiFi in public areas.

The room was small. The shower was in between the toilet and the bidet. You could not open the bathroom door all the way as the sink was in the way. You had to run the shower 10 minutes before you had hot water. The meals were good and had a good offering at night.

The hotel is located in an ancient customs building, surely interesting, but our room was placed in a quite new building, made of a real low quality and quite dirty. Very expensive for the quality of the room. The only positive thing was the breakfast, a very normal continental breakfast.

The room we had -me, my wife and my 14 years old daughter- was a little bit too small. Nice hotel which is located central between Sirmione and Peschiera. From this Hotel you can travel very easily by car to Salò on the west side or to Gardaland / Bardolino on the east side of the lake. You can go by bus to Sirmione (one way: 1€) or to Gardaland (free of charge). The next time we will take with our bikes to be more flexible. In the evening after dinner it is not possible to walk to Sirmione; it’s too far - but it would be possible to go by bike. Nice hotel, very good food and nice owner / stuff; we will come again.

We had a very enjoyable week at the Dogana. The service in the restaurant was excellent and the HB food was very good. You will need a car to get anywhere as the hotel is a few miles out of the main towns.

Except for the fact that the room was cramped and airless, the hotel was very good. The service and treatment were excellent, the restaurant very good, and the building, a beautiful old villa, was lovely.

The food in the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired, as it has its own pizza oven, the food was very average and quite pricy. Eating indoors was not very nice and there is nowhere to sit and relax while having a drink from the bar.

Staff and service very good. Pizzeria offered a good choice of meals which were very reasonably priced in pleasant surroundings. The children enjoyed the swimming pool. As we had a room overlooking the main road, the noise levels increased greatly early in the morning. The only disappointment was that the room could do with some updating and the bunk beds, supplied for our nearly teenage children, would not be suitable for younger children as there was no full length guard on the top bunk and no ladder.

We had a great stay at the Dogana Hotel. It was a short drive to the old town of Sirmione and from there we took a boat trip round Lake Garda. The facilities at the hotel were very satisfactory and the staff most helpful. The swimming pool made the holiday for the children. Look forward to going back one day.

We were somewhat dissapointed in the Dogana Hotel. Though the grounds of the hotel were beautiful(pool area, breakfast room), the guest rooms were quite small and needed updating. My daughters room airconditioner never worked and the only window she had was a ceiling window that didn't open. They also turned off the airconditioning to my room the morning of departure at 6:00 a.m. Definetely not worth the price.

My only negative comment about the hotel is that the air conditioning is not as good as it could be and it felt a bit sticky at night. The hotel staff were fantastic and the food was very impressive. It's a bus ride from the centre of Sirmione which in the daytime is no problem as the bus goes from opposite the hotel but in the evening the taxis are very expensive if you want to go into Sirmione.

Beautiful and pictoresc hotel, we had a very quite and nice room with a view over the lake, there is a nice swimming pool, elegant rstaurant, breakfast aria and pizzeria. Personel is friendly and helpful, even they do not speak much English. There are busses from the front of the hotel to Verona or Brescia (via Sirmione) almost every hour. Sirmione is in a walking distance (about 1 h)but the lake is 200m behind the hotel. Highly recommended.

I was pleasantly surprized. I had a difficult time selecting a hotel in this location and I am very happy I picked the Dogana. The pictures on the Web don't do it justice. It is a very, very nice establishment for the area. Close to the lake, a nice quiet walk. The receptionist was wonderful, very, very helpful, spoke many languages well. It was a joy to walk in and have her say, we have been waiting for you. The room was perfect for the 4 of us, as you know traveling with 4 is sometimes difficult when it comes to accomodatinos in Europe. We had adjoining rooms that were very comfortable. The restaurant has great food and the breakfast buffet is awesome. I loved the area and can't wait to go back.

We were very disappointed with the room we were allocated.The window was so high that we could not see out of it, unlike the photograph on the web site which had a patio door. The decor was poor with discoloured wallpaper in places and no pictures.
