Reviewed 17 August 2017

Have just returned from Idania Hotel in Bardolino after two great weeks. From 4 August till 16 August. This is our 6th year at the Idania. Ideally placed for a stroll down to the town.This hotel has good lounging areas also a well kept pool area. We are welcomed in a very friendly way when we arrive and are well looked after during our stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable with air con. Food was good. A wide range of food for breakfast with ham and eggs as a choice. No complaints about this hotel. It's always lovely to be there.

Room Tip: We like room 127 or 118. These are on the first floor. the lady who is the cleaner is a superb worke...

I'll start with all the positives! We stayed for ten days, hubby my little boy and I. I can honestly say the staff couldn't have been better. Amazing with our little boy, always friendly, helpful and chatty.
The food was reasonable. I've added a sample menu in the photos as an idea of what to expect.
Breakfast was a choice of scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, 3 cold meats and sliced cheese, crusty bread, sliced bread for toasting, 4 cereals, fresh fruit, jams, pastries, yogurts and cakes. Lots to chose from!! Yum.
Evening meal was a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and then help yourself to desserts.
We enjoyed most of food. Nice steak, tasty salmon, tasty chicken ("deviled young cockerel" was on the menu, it was actually half a roasted chicken, delicious). There was a lovely Salad bar every night which we enjoyed.
Our room (104) was great, the air con was amazing!! It was cleaned every single day - the Cleaners by the way where lovely ladies!
Pool was perfect for us. Location of hotel was absolutely spot on with a local DeSpar supermarket 10 mins walk away for essentials.
The less good stuff:
breakfast - we'd've really appreciated some water... only hot drinks and really strong fruit juice just didn't hit the spot in 40degree weather. A jug of iced water would've been brilliant.
Evening meal - a number of times we ate our meal without vegetables because they'd all been eaten without being replaced... also once we arrived down at 7:30 (when dinner was supposed to start...) and some ppl where already finishing their main course... all broccoli gone and never replaced... later replaced with peppers. We normally ate later and had peppers several times...we grew suspicious we'd miss the "good stuff" and got replacement alternatives.... make enough for everyone please!!!!
Same with desserts... some amazing looking creme brûlée came out... about half a dozen... that was it. Needless to say I didn't get one :(

All in all a lovely hotel - just a few niggles which could easily be resolved!

Just back from Bardolino at hotel Idania and had a wonderful stay once again as we have been many times before. Again this was a lovely experience as this is a family run hotel who cant do enough for you. Situation is off Via Marconi and a few minutes to bus station easy access to Verona and anywhere else on lake. Breakfast so relaxing as you can sit anywhere even outside.Housekeeping first class, thanks to lovely Lori who chatted to us every day and corrected our Italian. Grazie mille to Georgio and all at the Idania and look forward to seeing you all next wear.

Room Tip: .Superior room has balcony and air con and would recommend in July/August

The hotel was just far enough out of town to be a bit quieter but close enough to access restaurants and the lake easily. The rooms were excellent although zircon is a must. The staff were very polite and helpful and the place was always very clean. We used the pool a few times which was a good size but maybe a bit close to the road and hence a bit noisy sometimes.
Overall the place was really very good

Room Tip: chose a room with air con in the summer months
