BONOTTO HOTEL & APARTMENTS, THE LUXURY OF SIMPLE (BUT SPECTACULAR) THINGS Space Hotels, Italy
A simple container for brilliant content. This is the formula of the Bonotto Hotel & Apartments, which from the outside is simply a white building with large balconies. This is not a place for glitz and showiness; besides there is no need to show off when you hold the secret to exceptional hospitality. The hotel's successful formula, which has been applauded by guests, is based on its attentive services and unique position with access to tourist attractions, as well as the guaranteed comfort of top-quality mattresses and the best quality/price ratio. This hotel in Desenzano del Garda is the perfect starting place to discover Lake Garda and environs, which comes as no surprise because Space Hotels selects its affiliates with great care.
When choosing a hotel for just one night, how often have you said, “It doesn’t matter. Since I’m not staying for long, all I need is a bed, Wi-Fi and a hot shower!” Then your night included an uncomfortable bed, inconsistent Wi-Fi signal and lousy shower. It doesn't take long to understand why it does matter! This simple scenario shows the importance of what are considered to be only basic services in a hotel and, therefore, undervalued. The quality of sleep, a strategic location and young, helpful staff. This are the things that will change your holiday for the better.
The newly-renovated Bonotto Hotel & Apartments in Desenzano del Garda is the new frontier of hospitality. It is a return to the essential where the essential is a luxury. When talking about a new frontier, we must remember that a hotel is set in a place and only has two options: remain indifferent to its location and surroundings or become a meeting place for everything that the area has to offer, thus giving tourists a real experience. The second option is exactly what the Bonotto Hotel has chosen to do. It wishes to guide guests through a 360° experience that highlights everything about the local area. For example, the hotel’s owner and General Manager Emanuele Bonotto personally selected the house wine (Lugana DOP by Olivini e Montonale) and craft beers (by BAdeF). The same is true for the selection of local restaurants, tourist agencies and rental agencies that work with the hotel. The hotel acts as an ambassador for the local area by offering and highlighting the best of what is available to its guests.
The hotel’s style is modern and welcoming and its ambiance is pleasant and lively, thanks to its young and attentive staff that puts client satisfaction first. The large windows looking onto Lake Garda and the well-cared for white spaces all lead up to the hotel’s crowning jewel: the “Sala Paradiso”. This splendid hall on the 5th floor is both the breakfast room and a multifunctional space for events and small meetings. The effect of the windows facing onto Lake Garda is similar to standing on the bow of a ship. The exterior and interior spaces meld together creating a breathtaking panorama filled with natural light.
The Bonotto Hotel & Apartments offers 46 double, triple and quadruple occupancy rooms. The main focus in all the rooms is comfort; the Dorelan mattresses assure perfect sleep and the smart technology makes life simpler. The Italian brand luxury towels, free high-speed Wi-Fi and in-room coffee and tea maker provide guests with complete freedom and relaxation. In another building just 700 metres away, the Bonotto has eight apartments that can host up to six people each and offer every expected comfort, including satellite TV, indoor and outdoor parking, a washing machine and dishwasher, a Nespresso coffee maker and many other small details that make your day better.
The hotel, which is strategically located near the city centre, is just a short walk from the beaches of Desenzano and the port, from which guests can take boat tours of Lake Garda and its picturesque towns. The area offers many interesting sites and activities for all types of travellers. It is also rich in history, including Roman ruins, traces of the Republic of Venice and important sites regarding the “Risorgimento” period, such as Solferino and San Martino della Battaglia. There are many cities on the lake that are worth visiting. The west coast offers Sirmione and its famous thermal baths, Salò, Gardone Riviera, Riva del Garda, as well as the “Vittoriale degli Italiani” estate and the Varone waterfalls. While on the east coast, there are Peschiera, Lazise, Bardolino, Garda, Torri del Benaco, the San Virgilio point and Malcesine, where there is a cable car up to Monte Baldo, a spectacular mountain ridge running along the lake.
The lake offers many activities for sports fans and thrill seekers, including cycling, mountain biking, go karting, skeet shooting, sailing, swimming, hiking, running, golf and a velodrome. There are also many choices for lovers of good food and wine, such as the area’s extra-virgin olive oil, which is famous for its delicate taste, and its many wines, including Lugana, Chiaretto, Groppello, Bardolino, Valpolicella and the prestigious Amarone. Any visit to the lake must include the experience of touring the local wineries and tasting its famous wines. As well, the area has a wide selection of restaurants offering the specialities of the lake and its environs.
