So what's it like?
Located on the main promenade, in the busy centre of the resort only 5 minutes walk to the ferry departure point, the quirky Hotel Astoria is ideally situated for all activities and is just steps from the lake. The hotel's traditional restaurant and pizzeria 'Il Giardino delle Rane' (The Frog Garden), is renowned locally for the cuisine and vast collection of ornamental frogs of all shapes and sizes. The optional half board (available at a supplement) is taken in the restaurant. Guests are also welcome in the chic new bar 'Cerchio Aperto', adjacent to the hotel, which hosts varied evening events including tea dances and live jazz.
