My wife and I stayed at the Cristallo with Riviera Travel in June. the Cristallo is perfectly situated with stunning views of Lake Garda which is easily reached from the hotel, from there it is a pleasant, easy walk into Malcesine. Maria, the owner, is marvellous, when she sleeps I don't know. The World Cup had just started and the... More

Excellent food, lake view view room worth having, very we'll run, good value. We had the shared balcony which was really lovely. Only a 10 minute walk to Malcesine down a bit of a steep path. Bus stop for both ways right outside the hotel. The only down side was that you get 4 course meal on half board so... More

My first holiday in Italy, I loved it, made doubly enjoyable by the Hotel Cristallo's accommodation, and friendly, helpful staff. We enjoyed the food, the swimming pool, and the company of other guests, lovely. I couldn't have wished for better!

Echoing previous reviews, the hotel is very clean with welcoming staff who can converse in English, German and Italian with ease. We booked through Thompson (very good), and were told at time of booking that the room had no view, so weren’t expecting one. Room was of adequate size, air con, nicely decorated with tiled floor; wardrobes and drawers were... More

3 of us spent a week's Riviera holiday at the Cristallo in seperate rooms. All we on the first floor and 2 of the rooms had balconies and the other a large widow overlooking the mountains. The rooms and hotel were spotless and the staff are friendly and there is a personal touch which is usually lacking at larger hotels.... More

The Hotel was excellent, the staff superb, and the food out of this world. Maria, the owner could not have been more helpful , and she was ably assisted by her very... More

Like JuliaB816 i've just spent a week in the basement thanks to Thomson's staff not pointing out the small print! i'm sorry but had i been told that "no view" meant not even daylight then I would have paid a supplement! Aside from the location of the room, the hotel was fine with good food and facilities. The hotel staff... More
