Welcome to Hotel degli Oleandri.With rooms and terraces overlooking the lake, this hotel’s ancient walls are part of its distinctive feel, offering a unique experience to its guests.

Something for everyone

Welcoming, tranquil and airy. Our recently refurbished rooms at Hotel degli Oleandri have everything you need for a wonderful stay in Sirmione or a romantic weekend on Lake Garda.

The structural conversion of the house into a hotel created twenty rooms that are spread over eight different types. Details on the Hotel degli Oleandri past here.
Complex construction work was needed to turn the building into a hotel and adapt the structure for its new use, while retaining the historical authenticity of its walls. So, we cannot offer very large rooms or bathrooms.

Each room is different from all the others and designed to meet the needs of guests travelling alone as well as whole families on holiday. Hotel degli Oleandri has rooms for one person and more spacious rooms and suites, accommodating up to four people.

Things to love about Hotel degli Oleandri

Now for a little history

Staying at Hotel degli Oleandri is an unforgettable experience. Leave behind ideas of glossy, modern hotels and embrace the unique details this hotel has to offer.

The hotel is housed in a building dating back to when the Roman poet, Catullus, stayed in Sirmione. It is also where a mill wheel from a medieval olive press was found, as well as other precious details of the original house being preserved here too. These include an old well, that’s still functioning, an elegant fresco that decorates the vaulted ceiling in the dining room and an ancient floor in the lounge.

All in all, you’ll find yourself surrounded by history. Clearly, you won’t find the usual amenities offered by the most up-to-date hotels here. But if you love authentic locations, you’ll discover so much more. This hotel is in keeping with the magnificent ancient walls around Sirmione, reflecting the establishment’s past.

Ein sehr Netter und schöner Aufenthalt. War alles super, sehr freundliches Personal. Die Frühstücksdame war immer mega fröhlich😊. Das einzigste was mir nicht so gefallen hat, war das kleine Bad. Sonst sehr zu empfehlen.

Preis - Leistung top, Lage perfekt, Seeblick, nettes Personal, was will man mehr. Zwei Tipps, das Frühstück auf der Terrasse bestellen und einmal ganz oben auf der Terrasse Sonnenbaden sind ein Muss.

1 settimana a Sirmione, borgo storico splendido. Cortesia sempre da parte del personale, a qualsiasi ora e per qualsiasi questione. Colazione soddisfacente, con alcune proposte fisse altre varianti, scelta non ristretta. Camere con aria condizionata, ben tenute e rifinite. Bagni adeguati e ben tenuti. Hotel accogliente, non grande quindi trasmette sensazioni di non affollamento né caos. Nel centro di Sirmione, appena superato il castello, appena prima della chiesa. Unico neo la nostra vista è stata interna sulle stradine del borgo. Ma la camera aveva 2 bagni, cosa rara al punto che davvero non ci abbiamo creduto sinché non abbiamo visto, e sono due bagni veri, completi diciamo. Soggiorno gradevole, servizi adeguati e soddisfacenti. Giudizio positivo senza indugio e con invito a provare. Inoltre è prevista la possibilità di lasciare l'auto in parcheggio a 5 minuti dall'Hotel, potendo usare l'auto e rientrare per tutta la permanenza: un servizio irrinunciabile a Sirmione.
