My wife and I stayed for 4-5 days at Hotel Castello in September. We highly recommend it for several reasons:
1. Location - The hotel is directly on Lake Garda with its own beach and only a 5 minute walk to the stores and restaurants of Malcesine or the tram to the top of Mount Baldo (highly recommended - especially on a clear day). Views from the hotel balconies out over the lake are spectacular.
2. Rooms - We stayed in 2 separate types of rooms. For the first few days, we stayed in the newer wing of larger, nicer rooms. These directly faced the lake and the room design was extremely clean and modern. We loved these rooms. The last night, we moved to an older room in another wing. It was much smaller and had not been re-modeled in some time. It was fine - nothing to complain about, nothing to write home about. If you can afford the nicer rooms, they are much, much nicer.
3. Staff - All of the staff were pleasant, funny, patient and helpful. Clearly a family operation. Nice to support the family.
4. Food - We ate breakfast and dinner here multiple times. It was pretty good and the dining room faced directly out to the lake.
All in all, we had a great experience and really do recommend the hotel to any visitors to Malcesine.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Situated right in the historical centre of Malcesine (the town centre is just 50m away) but in a quiet position at the foot of the Scaligero Castle among the ancient battlements and the waters of Lake Garda, the Hotel Castello Lake Front is proof of how architecture and landscape can come together in perfect harmony: the private beach does indeed seem to be a natural continuation of the Hotel structure. All the main areas of the hotel - such as the dining room, the lounge, the bar and the panoramic terrace - offer incomparable views over the lake Garda. ... more less
