“A Nice and Relaxing Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We were a group of friends that stayed here for some nights, a long weekend. This is a nice hotel with a beautiful view. We all had rooms with big balconies with a view over the lake. Great.
The room are very good.

We recently stayed for one night but have our doubts about a few things. Yes, very nice room overlooking the castle and lake. The 1st danger was the tiny halogen spotlights which leave a severe burn on the skin if touched - I know from experience!! Danger number 2 came in the shape of the railings around the balconies - all with horizontal bars which are easy to climb for a young child if a parent's back is turned for a couple of minutes.
Sadly we did not get a friendly welcome at breakfast as we sat in the wrong seat!!! No one told us we had to sit at the table with our room number. We offered to move but were told no. As we looked around we realised the numbers were randomly placed around the garden! Just like being at a wedding with no table plan!
Breakfast was nice with quite a variety on display. Some strange cakes or biscuits - no labels to say what they were and staff too busy to speak or even come near us. No we will not be back!

We stayed at the Ariston for 11 nights for our recent wedding in July. It is a really lovely, friendly hotel. All the staff were very pleasant, a special mention to Daniele on Reception! We booked one of the new third floor Eco rooms and we were not disappointed. The room was spotlessly clean and very modern with a lovely, light bathroom with waterfall shower. The balcony was very spacious and the view was just breathtaking of the town, castle and lake. Some of our wedding guests who visited our room were very jealous! The room was cleaned everyday and was always immaculate again when we returned to it late afternoon and cool from the air conditioning. Breakfast was served outside on the terrace which overlooked a lovely garden complete with water feature, beds/hammock and hot tub. The hotel is in the perfect location, close to the cable car for Monte Baldo and a couple of minutes walk into the town. We fell in love with Malcesine and we've already booked this hotel for our first anniversary trip next July :-)

Room Tip: The Eco rooms have amazing views!

The location of this hotel is perfect; close enough that everything is within comfortable walking distance yet just far enough away to ensure a peaceful nights sleep. The castle, town and lake are all less than five minutes walk away and the cable car to Monte Baldo is almost on the doorstep. The staff are very welcoming and happy to help with any queries you might have. We stayed on the third floor with a view of the lake and castle and could not have asked for a better view to wake up to every morning! The rooms are cleaned every day by the maids at a reasonable hour (never before 11am) for those who like a lie in. The garden is beautiful and has a sun loungers, a hammock and a jacuzzi.

The only negative of an otherwise perfect hotel is there is no swimming pool but with a gorgeous lake less than five minutes away I would certainly not let this put you off staying at the hotel.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra for a room on the third floor - bigger balcony and better view of the castle...

Hotel Ariston is realy lovely, quiet family-run hotel with relaxed friendly atmosphere. All staff were very pleasant and attentive. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the garden was delightful.Perfect location to explore not only Malcesine, but due close to the cable cab to Monte Baldo even moutains with breathtaking views on Lake di Garda. We had small, but excellent room with fantastic views to castle and mountains. Also like the green/environmental aspects of the hotel. Would strongly recommend others to stay here. We have already had the other three hotels on the lake, but the hotel Ariston one was the best.
