Via Vittorio Emanuele 23, Erbusco, Lombardy, Italy
"The hotel is in a beautiful setting. The room, for the most part, was quite nice. The spa services were good, and the pool area very relaxing. That said, the service was not what I expect from a hotel of this caliber. Was the service less than expected since I was a single female traveler, since I was American, since I booked via a third party site when a direct email to the property about rates, etc, was not answered, or just 'luck of the draw'? I'm not sure. But, regardless of the reason, the service was less than expected. I didn't find the staff rude, but they were fairly 'cold and businesslike' which was not my experience at any other hotel I stayed in in Italy, and those were nice hotels as well. Staff everywhere else were warm, inviting and very personable. My room was meant to have a balcony and it did, but it also had a high wall (probably chest height and I'm 5'9") so there was no view at all from the balcony which defeats the purpose. My room on the first afternoon was very noisy - lots of clattering and banging and non stop water running noises from somewhere. When I inquired at the front desk, they told me my room was next to the 'housekeeping office' but that they never get complaints. To their credit it was slightly less noisy after I mentioned the noise. However it was not an office, it was a working room for housekeeping so why put that kind of room right next to a guest room? The staff at the front desk never offered to move me, or anything. The room also had a closet that had a very low ceiling, as if it was under a stairwell. This could have been a result of each room being unique and tucked into nooks and crannies which for the most part was charming. When I got back to my room after the first day 'out and about' the housekeeping service was spotty at best. A towel that was dirty that I had left where they would know I was expecting a replacement vs. willing to use it again (there were towels I did reuse, this one was dirty) was hung up again for me dirty, and a cleaning rag was left on the sink counter. From the time I checked in, there were cobwebs hanging in a corner of the room, and the shelf in the closet had debris/dirt on it none of which 'disappeared' after the room was supposedly cleaned during my stay. Since it was August, there was only one restaurant at the hotel open, which would have been fine, but it didn't seem like the restaurant was large enough to accommodate all guests. I asked for dinner in the restaurant both nights of my stay well in advance on my arrival. I dressed for dinner (i.e. was nicely not casually dressed) so was quite surprised the first night to be told by the maitre d' that he "had a lovely table reserved for me in the bar area". When I expressed surprise/disappointment, his response was that it was the same food, which is all well and good, but a hotel like this, part of the meal is the experience so sitting in the bar, where ice is clattering, drinks are b"
"Simply put, this hotel is not worth it’s Relais & Chateaux status and is definitely not a 5 star establishment. Let me give you some specific examples. When checking in we got very quickly walked to our room without telling us anything about the property, breakfast, the facilities, etc. We had to find out ourselves where breakfast was y wondering around and what time it ended, availability of newspapers, etc. We booked a suite, room number 202. It is advertised as having a separate seating area and often a sofa bed. All I can say, don’t waste your money on a suite here if you absolutely have to stay here. Our seating area was literally a corridor / entrance to the room next to a bathroom entrance with no sofa (just two awkwardly placed armchairs and a small table), no windows, no TV. I have included a photo. Next was the temperature in the room and this has been mentioned in other reviews. In the middle of the night it would become unbearably hot and still and temperature controls in the room do absolutely nothing to change it. Best you can do is keep opening and closing the balcony door to naturally regulate the temperature. The hotel markets itself as a luxury 19th century villa. Granted, it’s common areas are nice, but rooms are dated to the point of showing some serious wear and breakages with strong flavour of no updates since 1980s. In our room carpet was ripped, doors chipped, shower rusty with bits literally falling off. I have included photos. Breakfast is 28 euros per person (for basic buffet offering) and extra 12 to 15 euros if you want properly cooked eggs rather than runny slosh which they say is scrambled eggs available as part of the main breakfast offering. WiFi was literally off in our part of the hotel. I asked the staff on the first day about it politely explaining that it works in the restaurant & common areas but not in our room. Was told that there are no problems in the hotel with internet and I should try again. Next day same problem, this time my husband was a little more forceful. Surprise, surprise, wifi signal appeared 5 minutes after our second complaint but still no acknowledgement that they simply refuse to switch on all routers at the furthest end of the property hoping that you will never ask. Overall, I would definitely not recommend this property for a five star luxury escape that it markets itself to be. Plenty of other much better offerings at that price point with better quality of accomodation, better food and definitely much more superior service. "
"L’Albereta is one of those places that usually just exists in your mind. Elegant, graceful, perfectly appointed, well trained staff that feels it’s their God given calling to please you. The hotel is a villa that has been wonderfully modernized while still keeping the patina of its heritage. Food is exceptional, spa is otherworldly, grounds are impeccable, and again, staff is what you dream of. Take me back — anytime."

Via Cadorna N° 7, Sulzano, Lombardy, Italy
"I first visited Hotel RivaLago the day after its official opening in 2006. I was blown away by the location, the hotel, the owners and the staff then and it remains just as good now. I have visited many times and held a weekend party here 10 years ago for my partner’s birthday. It is such a special place that words really don’t exist to explain how I feelproperly. Now in 2019, the same standards apply that have always been the case here. The rooms are great. The communal space is great and the gardens and pool area are exceptional. An awful lot of the credit must go to the owners Antonella and Gianlucca. They keep striving to improve but whilst doing so don’t mess with everything that works so well. It also says a lot when you recognise staff from 10 years ago and they recognise you too (Hi Nina!!). That’s so comforting but then there are the new staff members and they all feel like part of the family. Keeping the quality and standards high. The new glass extension/conservatory was not here when I last visited but it’s a welcome addition. To be able to sit there and feel like you are outside eating your dinner on an October evening is wonderful and so was the food in the Bistro. I could go on but then it would sound like a puff piece but having been here many times and also travelled across the world I would have to say that the Hotel RivaLago is a slice of heaven. "
"This is a lovely property. It has everything: location directly on the lake, excellent, well equipped rooms, good restaurant, lovely pool and gardens with lots of seating, comfortable lobby and most important a friendly and helpful reception staff. I had room 302 for two nights. It is on the top floor with a nice size terrace and two chairs, two loungers and a small table. My visit was in mid-November and even though it was a bit chilly to use the terrace, I did sit out there to enjoy the magnificent view. The bathroom is sparkling white with nice size Salvatore Ferragamo amenities. There is a bathrobe on the top shelf of the armoire which also contains a safe, lots of hangers (that can be removed) and extra pillows. I was impressed that the mini-bar contained bottled smoothies in addition to regular fare. Breakfast is expansive with several stations. The attendant will bring you coffee/tea/hot chocolate,etc. Be sure to notice the unique items: ripe persimmons, a butter/yogurt mixture, honey in the comb and an expansive assortment of jams and jellies,etc. There are also eggs, breads, fruit and sweets. Wi-fi is excellent and stable."
"A solid 4 star hotel for sure. Impeccable, pristine condition throughout, find-able via GPS, directly on the lake with everything you expect. English TV stations, lake views, parking space by reservation, fully controllable a/c and heat, above ground Jacuzzi by the pool...jump on in. Glass enclosed patio bistro presumably becomes open-air in the summer. A short walk up the hill from the hotel is a very plain looking church from the outside but strikingly ornate inside. The hotel gives you a slip for a ferry ( 5 minute walk from hotel) discount to the big tourist attraction...Montesola Island. Quiet and elegant"

Via Mirabella, 34,Fraz. Clusane, Clusane, Lombardy, Italy
"The hotel is situated in the hills above Lake Iseo, in Clusane to the west of Iseo. It is well signposted from the main road and is along a little winding road. There is plenty of parking, especially to the rear, with some disabled spaces near the entrance to the hotel. Staff were amazing, multi-lingual and nothing was too much trouble. They all knew every guest, so we were never asked our room number when we ate in the restaurant or ordered something from the bar. The hotel is set over several separate buildings. Many of the rooms have a lake view. Our room was huge, very clean and had a lake view. There was a phone in both the room and the bathroom. The bathroom was spotless, had an emergency pull cord and the towels were changed daily. Good quality toiletries. A kettle can be provided upon request so you can make your own hot drinks. There is a laundry service, Sky TV, minibar/fridge and fast WiFi. The outside pool is unheated, has a relaxation area and loungers, and a phone should you wish to order any refreshments. There were very pretty gardens and the scent of jasmine wafted in through the open windows. The hotel has its' own olive grove and tours are available on occasion and the oil can be purchased. There is a bar with a conservatory and terrace, separate from the main restaurant with views over the lake. We ate in the restaurant twice. The food was very good, but a bit limited for vegetarians. However the meals we had were well presented, well cooked and very rich. We were served aperos and amuse bouches whilst waiting for our main meal. The selection at breakfast was good, with hot and cold foods, cereals, fruit, cheeses and meats, yoghurts and an abundance of breads, cookies and pastries. Iseo town is about 10 minutes drive and it is possible to walk to the shoreline at Clusane in about 20 minutes. The hotel was quiet during our stay, but they cater for weddings and events, so may be a bit more lively on those occasions."
"On a recent tour we spent two nights in this wonderful hotel. Our room had a beautiful view of the lake which we were able to enjoy from our terrace. The grounds, buildings and pool are all beautifully maintained. The hotel sits on the top of a hill and is surrounded by olive groves. Our room was clean and comfortable and the bathroom had everything that you would need. We had a delicious dinner there of veal and we enjoyed the breakfast buffet. There were lots of good choices as well as eggs you could order. They also served some of the best coffee that we had in our travels. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Special thanks to Valentina for her wonderful presentation in the olive grove and processing plant. We also enjoyed the olive oil tasting and Franciacorta wine that she provided. We loved everything about this place and wished that we had more than two nights stay there. As we were with a tour group we had transportation everywhere. However if you stay here you will need a car as there are not shops or restaurants nearby. We actually felt that was a plus as it was so very peaceful and beautiful."
"we stayed at romantik for a wedding out stay was for 4 nights and definitely will be returning there .. there is not one thing negative I can say about this place. The staff are extremely helpful and polite nothing is too much for them .. beach/pool towels were left in the rooms and iron and ironing board can be supplied if wanted .. although a buffet style breakfast there was someone there to cook you fresh eggs any way that you wanted and would actually come to the table and asked what you wanted .. the food was of the highest standard .. the pool area was very clean and you got waitress service whilst your at the pool ..definitely must put this place on your to do list 😃"

Via Predore 75, Sarnico, Lombardy, Italy
"We stayed 2 nights as I joined my husband who came for business . We had a lovely view of the lake which looked like a whole wall picture .The hotel is located a bit away from the small town of Sarnico .My husband hired a car for his business so I was a bit stuck during the day. I wanted to hire a bicykle which would be nice to ride around but the bike was not available in the hotel. In the evening we went to Sarnico. There were nice restaurants . The room comfort was ok ,pillows a bit hard and my husband thought the bed was not comfortable . Thankfully there was air condition working as the room on the top floor was becoming hot quickly. The internal pool was huge and warm with jaccuzi bubbles it was really relaxing.I did not try spa. Outside pool was even bigger but cold because of the end of September.Sun terrace was lovely very quiet during our stay .There were lots of sun beds some of them were old but quite a lot looked new. The staff was friendly and kind.Breakfast food was fine considering usual Italian standards . The srumbble eggs were not good ,hard and dry and no choice to order. The hotel was clean and pleasant to stay. "
"I have stayed over 12 weeks in Italy in the past 3 months on business. I have been in many hotels and airbnb’s. Lake Iseo is a place i frequent due to business that we do in the area. I am quite fortunate because it is a beautiful area. I have stayed at Cocca Hotel Thai Spa Resort several times but because we were dining with colleagues i haven’t had the pleasure to dine in their restaurant. And did go negative reviews i had read i didn’t want to. I will tell you that the restaurant was amazing!! They have a Thai Chef in this lovely hotel. The food was outstanding. The Chicken skewers with peanut sauce i thought would be average. They were amazing. The pad Thai was the best i have had in the world...even in Asia. Amazing find. I will make this where i stay! Thank you Cocca. Wonderful service!"
"An okay hotel. Very friendly staff, but a few things let it down. We followed the missleading reviews of the restaurant, so stayed here for a night whilst on lake. Who ever thought this was the best Pad Thai they've ever tasted needs to travel more! Barely recognisable! The pool was nice, but crowded and the spa was expensive for what it was. "

Via del Dossello n.30, Iseo, Lombardy, Italy
"Visited Empire Resort in Clusane for 5 days mid July, as we fancied somewhere relaxing after spending the previous 10 days buzzing around the Ligurian Coast & Tuscan cities. Wow! What a great find. It's situated on a hill facing Lago d'Iseo, and the views are so beautiful they'll make you cry with joy. The Hotel is small, set in it's own grounds, with a fantastic terrace to watch the sun go down with an Aperol Spritz, and a beautiful (and quiet) swimming pool to laze away your sunny afternoon after a morning out and about. We paid a few Euros extra for a Lake view (Though mountain views are nice too), and as mentioned THE VIEW IS INCREDIBLE. The room was large with a huge patio door leading onto a private terrace overlooking the lake. The bathroom was a decent size with a superb shower with multiple jets including foot and shoulder settings. I couldn't wait to wake up every morning so I could watch the sun spreading over the mountains & towns across the lake, knowing I'd be watching it set that night with a cold glass in my hand and the warm air on my face. The family that own/run the hotel are wonderful. They're warm, friendly and tolerant of British people mangling their beautiful language. (Bevo FUORI, non Flori....) Annamaria and her brother are the kind of happy, friendly and helpful young people that make the world a better place, and make you smile each time you see them. They're a credit to Nadia and her husband, who never stop running around and catering to anything you need. All are an excellent source of advice and suggestions of things to do and places to go. A car is required to get the best out of Lago d'Iseo, Though you can walk from the Hotel to Clusane (about a mile) in an easy 20 minutes for restaurants, bars etc. Iseo & Sarnico are about a 10 minute drive (or hours walk) along the lake, and both offer lots of bars, shops restaurants, ferry & supermarkets. Bergamo, Verona, Parco Vivo Naturale, Brescia, Mantua and many many more, are under an hour's drive. Milan is 70 minutes away, but avoid rush hour between 7 & 9 when the ring road is a problem. All in all, a great time in a great location with great people."
"My girlfriend and I spent two nights at this hotel and I can highly recommend it. The staff was very sweet and helpful, the rooms were clean and the view was amazing. The only thing i would change was, there was no refrigerator in the room we were in. It made it a bit difficult buying water and you couldnt buy simple food and such. The placement of the hotel I would say requires a car, because it is a bit remote and away from the main road on a mountain. Small things compared to the whole experience and not something that would keep me from coming back. Great place to spend a weekend or a few days for maximum relaxation. "
"Stayed 4 days in august What is good View on south lake Generally quiet Rooms super clean and quite modern Friendly staff Good italian style breakfast Decent grounds Not so good On site parking only 4 spaces Tricky to access ( narrow) Pool is very small 3x 7 m and only 10 pool chairs Hotel gets afternoon sun head on and so is hot in the evening Some rooms have no view at all Decor is rather rustic The floors and walls resonate and you can hear 3d noise from surrounding rooms Shower cabin is 80 x80 cm so very tight for tall or wide people"

Via S. Bonomelli - Località Invino, Province of Brescia, Lombardy, Italy
"We stayed recently as part of four couples on a wine tasting tour of Iseo. We stayed the first four nights in a garden view room and the latter three nights in a lake view room. Both had their merits, the lake view an older style of room with a stunning terrace and lake view, the garden view room being more contemporary and quiet. The service was excellent and we dined three nights in their restaurant where the food was delicious and the staff looked after us very well. Daniela on reception was excellent in the lead up to our stay and extremely helpful in sorting out all of our preferences and requested and even arranged the local taxi person Mr Pagnoni for all of our taxi trips during our stay. Ado also took good care of us during our stay and even looked after our Franciacorta purchases in his cellar till we departed. He has also arranged to post a jacket that we left in our wardrobe !! You do need a car for this location as it is a fairly steep drive from the town of Iseo but the setting and view is well worth the effort. The breakfast terrace dining area was a perfect setting to kick start each day and the cosy and stylish dining room was perfect to end the evening. The rooms were spacious and well equipped with bath and shower provision although ensure that your are in rooms 34,35 or 36 for this facility. A good size, if somewhat cold, swimming pool was available together with a sun terrace and hot tub. If staying in the older part of the hotel with lake views, be aware that their can be some noise from weddings and parties held in the venue downstairs from the rooms but the noise doesn’t last all night and stops not too late into the evening, I only mention it in case anyone is an early bedder !! "
"Highly recommend a lake view room as the views are breath-taking. The hotel is very clean our room was big in what I understand is the new part of the hotel it was very quite (save for the last night when there seemed to be a lot of bottles being thrown into a bottle bank not sure where that was) but this went on all day and until about 1am in the morning. I think it had something to do with the wedding that was going on. The hotel staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The breakfast is good you can order different style eggs and there is enough for all tastes. They could do with putting the breakfast under some covers or in cold trays rather than just on a long table. We also had dinner in the restaurant on two nights. The food is really good but not cheap. The only draw back to the hotel is the fact that it is high up a mountain and you really need a car to get anywhere (that or a bike!). Walking down the mountain seemed risky there might have been a path way through the woods which we did not find but could not have used as we had trouble enough with the mosquitos without walking through woods! The pool area is not that relaxing as a fan seems to come on for a few hours which disturbs any relaxion (but this hotel is probably not one to go to just sit by the pool). All in all I can highly recommend the hotel but I would suggest that you only do a short break of say 3/4 days, we stayed for a week and that for us was too long."
"We returned to this hotel after a few years and got a suite that comes with a big and well equipped private balcony. The view from there is .... you need to see it! The hotel is furnished with antiques, however, we liked style and atmosphere. All staff is always very friendly and helpful, e.g. we were informed before booking that there will be 2 weddings during our stay. The restaurant is still (one of) the best in this region - this is wrt to quality of food as service. On the negative side we need to mention that in our room the mattresses were outdated by far and need to be exchanged soonest. Nevertheless, a place to return again!"

Via del Santellone, 116/120, Brescia, Lombardy, Italy
"This hotel was fantastic for our weekend bachelorette party in Brescia. The staff could not have been more helpful! We had a very long delay before arriving and the hotel restaurant was closed so they allowed us to get a take away providing all plates and cutlery and a seating area. They helped us to book alternative restaurants and communicate with the taxi companies going above and beyond expectations to ensure our group of 12 had everything we needed. Amazing customer service. Our only complaint would be regarding the pool which is run by another company who own the restaurant. The pool was lovely but is often closed for private events which go on quite late with loud music though having noted a previous review we had contacted the hotel and found out in advance that the pool and restaurant would be closed for one day of our 3. The day we arranged to be at the pool was slightly marred by another man who was very unpleasant and argumentative throughout coming over and stating a lot of rules he felt we should be following (having among his own group smashed a glass, some of which landed in the pool and was never retrieved). He was rather aggressive and kept telling us we shouldn’t be there if we didn’t speak Italian. He insisted on checking whenever we had a drink that we were using plastic glasses and generally patrolling the pool making unpleasant comments and shouting. We tried to ask him what it was he wanted to stop and happily deflated a beach ball he objected to but this had little effect on his persistent interruptions. Upon complaining to the hotel they thought he might be the pool manager however when they described the man and came to see who we were complaining about he said he was not a staff member. The pool was closed early by the staff who were equally frustrated at the man barking orders to them about whether they should serve us or let us use their facilities. This made our experience in the pool rather frustrating however when we spent our last day there we had no problems at all and the staff where really pleasant. Overall I would recommend the hotel with reservations about the pool and restaurant which I would advise to check availability in advance to ensure the facilities are available."
"Very relaxing and beautiful environment. Wonderful loggias and outdoor pool area. Luxurious hotel breakfast with many local specialities. Large and fresh rooms and baths. Modern and consequent interor in a historic setting. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large free and safe parking. Perfect location for trips to Brescia, Bergamo, Garda, Iseo, Franciacorta wineries and Milan"
"I don't know how many times I have to repeat in my reviews that the most important parts of a hotel stay are pretty much when the guest arrives, and when they leave. A bad experience at departure tarnishes even the best stay. In truth, this is a nice hotel - but although we got a weird email from the hotel the day before we arrived, they didn't bother to tell us (1) that it would be a good idea to book dinner [by the time we arrived they were full] and (2) that there would be a charge for using the swimming pool even though it is featured in the publicity photos and no extra charge is mentioned in the listing. So when we left and we were charged EUR 100 extra for swimming twice in the pool, I was (justifiably) angry. Adding insult to injury it took about half an hour to check out. My advice: if you're going to stay, make sure you check on the extras because that was like 50% of the cost of the entire stay for us, as an unexpected "bonus". These sorts of charges are despicable."

Viale Italia 19, Brescia, Lombardy, Italy
"STAY AWAY! We booked via booking.com two rooms for four nights (5 people) at il Leoncino. We found a filthy (kitchentte!) and very old room and furniture for three people under the roof, with a stark unpleasant smell (n. 207), as well as another room for two, very cold but already a little more alike the rooms advertised on booking.com (n. 7). Having looked at other options (rooms n. 205, 206 and 4) we settled for one night in rooms 4 and 7. Our parents in room 4 were kept awake the whole night by the radiator even though they turned it off, the kitchen next door woke them up at 6.30 am... anyway, we saw five different rooms, all quite different from the clearly photo-shopped pictures on booking.com. After one night, sleep deprived, we honestly could not even imagine to move yet (!) to other rooms in the hotel and, thus,  tried to cancel our stay at il Leoncino, but the only thing we heard was that it was impossible to be reimbused for our three remaining nights as we booked via booking.com. As we stayed there for our Christmas holidays, they were under-staffed, at first nobody around to talk too, we had to wait 45 minutes for somebody to show up, only to be very rudly interrupted when trying to talk with the manager. Highly unpleasant experience, especially claiming that had we paid in cash we could have been reimbursed, but with a credit card payment that was not possible at all. Even though we tried to reach out to the central administration of the hotel multiple times to find a compromise (partial reimbursement) in the two following our disasterous stay, we never heard back from them. In sum, not worth the money at all, very deceiving pictures on booking.com."
"I stayed here for a business trip in January. Staff was helpful and welcoming and the building is a classic old 19th century style with beautiful details. The rooms are new and have a lot of charm. Clean and well maintained. Useful amenities such as spa and small gym."
"My trip to brescia was really perfect. I choose this hotel which is near to the center of the city (1 km). The room was big, very clean and comfortable. The staff really friendly. Breakfast super. Ah and I could rent the bike and use it all the day. I'll come back!"
