"A lovely quiet hotel in a simply stunning setting."
The town of Torri del Benaco is simply beautiful and very peaceful offering lots of bars, restaurants and stunning lakeside walks however, Garda was found to be so much better for shopping for bread, milk and groceries. We used the hourly local buses to travel to Verona (1hr 10 mins), Garda (8 mins), Riva del Garda (50 mins) and the many towns in between. Sitting on the left side of the bus travelling towards Riva and the right side of the bus towards Garda offer absolutely stunning views of the lake and mountains. Bus tickets can be bought from the small store at the bus stop in Torri del Benaco and cost 9 euro 80 cents for a return to Verona (zone 6) Riva del Garda requires a zone 5 ticket and Garda, zone 2. A tip is to buy your tickets before you board. Buying a ticket from the Driver is possible however they cannot sell returns and it is a few cents more expensive to buy them this way. Lake tours are also fabulous. The boats run to most of the towns around the lake. A tip to sailing the lake is to do it on a cool dry day. Heat is exhausting and the heat haze will severely restrict your views. A cool clear sunny day will offer you the best conditions. I recommend a crossing from Garda to Sirmioni via Bardolino and Lazise as well as a cruise from Riva del Garda to Brenzone via Limone. Venice is also too close by to miss. Only a 2 and a half hour journey by bus to Venona Porta Nuova stazione then on by train to Venezia-Santa Lucia stazione it offers a fabulous day excursion.
The hotel Internazionale is located in Torri del Benaco on the shores of Lake Garda. The hotel is difficult to find on your first visit however this is more than compensated for by the location and quality of the hotel. The accommodation, food, service and facilities are all excellent, with the staff very friendly and always ready to deal with any request you may have. The dining room is very comfortable and the food excellent value for money this coupled with a first class bar make the stay very enjoyable. The rooms do require upgrading, and the sight of the hotel handyman painting the corridors was slightly off putting. The swimming pool is good with comfortable sun loungers available, drinks will also be served by the pool if required. The hotel provides a free mini bus to and from Torri four times a day
The hotel was immaculate throughout. The staff really couldn't do any more for us. We were going to a party with 6 friends (not staying in our hotel) and the hotel owners arranged transport for us all to get us there and back. Every morning we had a lovely breakfast with the best tasting coffee! We can no longer have instant coffee at home! The only slight downside was that we had a metal staircase outside our room which resonated through the wall when it was used. It only woke me up but I'm a very light sleeper, didn't bother my wife who slept right through it! It was only used in the morning so I started treating it as my alarm clock. The location was ideal with the lakeside, the restaurants and bars and the town centre all within a 5 minute walk. I would genuinely recommend this hotel to anyone staying at Lake Garda, be it for a night or a week.

Very pleasant family-run hotel right by the lake. A bit further outside town than expected, but the bus stops nearby. Comfortable place to stay for a relaxing visit. Most helpful staff who could not have done more to help. Boat service from Torri (out of season) has infrequent links round lake so plan your day ahead.
