Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

An understated and comfortable hotel just 100 yards from the lakefront, the Hotel Bologna offers excellent value for money on the shores of Bardolino. The Andreoli family provide a warm and welcoming presence in the hotel and do everything they can to ensure that you get the most from your time in the heart of Bardolino. Each bedroom has a balcony with views of the town square, pool and sparkling lake beyond.

The ethos at the Bologna is very much one of rest and relaxation even in the heart of the resort. Its facilities have undergone a complete refurbishment in the last year and the first floor pool with built in whirlpool and sun terrace with loungers, parasols and bar service is relaxing and informal. From the terrace, you'll see the waters of Lake Garda glistening in the distance and this makes the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset and sip an aperitivo...or two.

Bardolino has a spectacular historical centre with stunning Medieval buildings and 12th century churches enveloping the modern promenade which features a plethora of shops and restaurants ranging from casual eats and exceptional gelato to haute cuisine. Be sure to stop at La Virata Trattoria del Pesca on the lakeside which boasts some of the best seafood on the lake with fritto misto platters and gorgeously rich linguine.

Facilities

Pools and Beaches 

Having undergone a complete refurbishment in the last year, the facilities at the Hotel Bologna are of superb quality and not perhaps what you'd expect from such a small hotel. The first floor boasts a pool terrace with a large chlorine free pool and surrounding sunbathing platform complete with loungers and parasols free for guests use.

Just four minutes away on foot, you'll find the stunning made made Lido di Mirabello beach which offers grassy picnic spots leading down to the cool and crystalline waters of Lake Garda. This is a very popular spot with families yet still maintains an air of peace and quiet away from the beating heart of Bardolino's centre. 

Restaurants and Bars

The Hotel Bologna offers bed and breakfast in their panoramic dining room each morning however there is no option for lunch and dinner service. But with the closest restaurant just a four minute walk away on the lakefront, you'll find no shortage of locations to dine out in the day and evening. 

There is a fantastic bar in the Hotel Bologna located just off the breakfast room with a seating area spilling out into the front of the hotel which is sheltered from the quiet roads with large palm trees. With an extensive wine list and cocktail menu, there is something here to suit every taste and makes for a lovely evening aperitif when you return from dinner in the town.
