“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We stayed at the Hotel Castello for a week at the beginning of July. Our flight from the UK was delayed two hours so arrived later than expected and had, therefore, missed dinner. However, on arrival a cold supper was provided, which was much needed and appreciated!

The hotel is in an excellent location, next to the castle and centre of Malcesine. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The room was a good size with a small balcony overlooking the lake. The only negatives were the very small shower cubicle and the hair dryer, which was extremely hot and dried your hair but it's design made it difficult to style it! Will remember to take a travel dryer next time!

We had booked half board with a view to eating out a couple of evenings. However the choice and quality of the food was very good so we ate in every evening.

Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again if we return to Malcesine.

My wife, daughter and I stayed for 10 nights recently (July 2014) when we visited for a friend's wedding. The location is first class, being both on the lake front yet only 5 minutes walk into the town centre. The lake front is busy during the day, but not uncomfortably busy, and quiet in the evenings.
The rooms are a decent size, big enough and each with some form of balcony or outside seating area. The hotel also has its own lake front garden and beach with plenty of room for guests.
The jewel in this crown in terms of facilities is the upstairs bar/restaurant which affords fabulous views over the lake across towards Limone, no better place to enjoy lunch or an evening drink and meal as the sun goes down (see the photo). I can still taste the ice cold beer whilst marvelling at the view!
And finally, the staff are outstanding. Friendly without being too familiar, helpful, flexible and of course multi-lingual.

Room Tip: Decide if you prefer a balcony with lake view or garden room with immediate access to the garden and...

We stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Castello Lake Front. It's in a superb position, right next to Lake Garda and the castle. When I booked it, it was the last available room and I knew it overlooked the garden not the lake. While not large, the room was comfortable and you could just see the lake which was nice. We had a small patio outside as well which led into the garden and then onto the lake. You can park for free in the outside garden area or pay to use their garage (outside is fine). The staff were all extremely polite and helpful.
The hotel is very close to the centre of Malcesine and all its narrow cobbled streets. We were very happy with the hotel and would definitely recommend it.

My fiancee (now my wife!) and I spent a week at the hotel prior to and immediately after our wedding in Malcesine. I can honestly say that for us the experience we had at the hotel was the finest we have received anywhere in the world. It was the first time I have been greeted at a hotel reception by an extremely polite, good humoured and attentive concierge by my name before I had approached the desk! The entire staff were attentive, professional and discrete making the whole experience relaxing and enjoyable. The room (we stayed in 304) had the most breathtaking view of the lake and surrounding mountains; sitting on the balcony looking at the spectacular scenery one could feel the pressures of work melt away.
The meals were also first rate with an expansive breakfast (omelets made to order) setting you up for the days activities. Relaxing in the grounds on the sun loungers or in the bar and restaurant with dedicated and friendly staff is the striking memory I will take away with me from this stay. Both my wife and I are already looking forward to returning next year! Well done all at the Castello.

Room Tip: ANy west facing room looks directly onto the lake and mountains beyond, fantastic!

My wife and myself stayed in Hotel Castello Lake Front for two nights in July 2014. The location is beautiful and we had a lovely room obverlooking the lake with a balcony. The staff could not have been more helpful and the hotel was really comfortable and spotless.
