“Perfect Stay in Malcesine!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Hotel Augusta is the great place to stay for a weekend getaway. I cannot imagine a better location in Malcesine. Lake-facing rooms offer balconies with stunning panoramic views of the pool, garden, CASTLE, old town, water and sun-kissed mountains. Hotel grounds are located opposite both the cable car station (for majestic Monte Baldo) and a small pizzeria (delicious snack day or night). Also within a 5-minute walking distance is a mini golf course, a small SPAR market, a pharmacy and the lovely historic centre of Malcesine (w. restaurants, cafes, leather & shoe shops, etc.). The hotel remains, nevertheless, peaceful and quiet. Hotel provides private parking in a lot secured over night. The pool(s) (outdoor and semi indoor) and grounds are very well kept, clean and charming. The staff is very friendly and was more than happy to give directions or recommendations (in German or English). While the decor may be slightly dated, our room was immaculately clean and very spacious. The breakfast buffet was standard but the meals were enjoyed on the patio overlooking the pool. Hotel Augusta has the charm missing in larger establishments. Hotel Augusta is a hidden gem worth discovering!!!!

Small problem: WiFi and air conditioning available at a small extra daily charge.

Room Tip: Lake-facing rooms are the ones worth booking.

Great location, nice rooms, swimming pool, and nice breakfast.

However, no airconditioning!!! for 130 euro a night I'd expect the airconditioning to be free... what happens here is that it costs 6 euros a day, and it only works at night! Why having this limitation? Why paying extra? They said - open the balcony... well, I did for a minute, and it was too hot so we decided to pay extra and get the remote.... but that minute was enough for a mosquito to get in and "party" all night long.

Also, there is a deposit box-also extra 2 euros a day. Why?

I prefer paying more on the room in advance, and not having to pay for each thing separately.

We loved hotel Augusta! We were on our honeymmon and I was a bit sceptical before we arrived as I thought the price was cheap in comparison to a lot of other hotels in the area and I wasn't sure what to expect, however it was wonderful, probably the best hotel overall of our trip through Italy! The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was big with lots of windows and a balcony with a mountain and lake view. The decor was a little bit dated but it was extremely clean and comfortable, as was the bathroom, and the shower was powerfula nd always with hot water. The hotel itself was also very clean and comfortable, great public spaces, a fabulous outdoor and indoor pool in a beautiful garden. The breakfast was served over a good time period and was varied and plentiful, and we ate it on a terrace overlooking the gardens and castle. The hotel is a 2 minute walk in to the centre of town, the castle and the lake, but just away from the main centre so as not to be noisy or tiny. There is a great pizza place accross the road and it is opposite the cable car so convenient for trips up the mountain. Parking is free and there were always spaces. Free internet access also. We loved it at this hotel and would recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: Ask for a high story floor with a balcony and lake view.

Our first time to Lake Garda and we were so happy to be staying at this lovely hotel, we had the Romantic Suite with stunning views of the lake, mountains and castle, we loved relaxing and sunbathing on our spacious balcony with amazing view. The hotel staff were so helpful and efficient, always obliging and giving us helpful tips on where to visit and eat. Breakfasts were excellent in bright cheerful rooms and also tables outside on the two lovely terraces.
As previous comments mention there is a small road on one side of the hotel with light traffic which starts from around 7am, however the many advantages of this wonderful location definitely outweigh this!
Hotel Augusta is minutes walk from the lake and the beautiful old town of Malcesine. We had a great holiday and will be back, thank you Augusta!

Room Tip: Definitely book a room with balcony! Lake-side rooms are quieter.

Wow, we were amazed the moment they upgraded us to the villa style part of the hotel on checking in. The facilities feel so private and relaxed, you can enjoy a cold drink in all areas of the grounds, its amazing. 5* on location, we loved the location (young couple) and i'm sure anyone of any age will agree. Everything was on our doorstep and the 1 minute walk into town was always a winner! The views are breathtaking, high mountains behind us & overlooking the top of the town and amazing lake in front and around us.

Hotel Augusta arranged transport from Verona Airport to our stay and on return they done the same, the transport was on time and such a lovely 40 minute drive along side the lake.

Breakfast was perfect everyday with a large selection of cheese, ham, salami + breads. Fresh juice, tea or coffee & ice water. Not to forget the boiled eggs and selection of fruits. You can eat inside or outside, very welcoming.

The outdoor pool setting is really inviting, we loved chilling out by the pool and they even have a 'cool-down' jacuzzi outside which is the best for those summer days.

Lastly, we would stay here every year and i'm sure it would be just as great experience each time!

Room Tip: Book the villa style rooms in the separate villa building, it has curly steps up to the rooms and ha...

This was our 5th stay in the "Hotel Augusta" and once again it was a wonderful week,we booked direct with the hotel as we have done previously and found the Bendetti family very accomodating and extremely helpful, we booked the flight to Verona with Ryanair had an excellent flight arriving on time to find our minibus driver waiting to transfer us to Malcesine, the only downside to this was the driver didn't speak english and we were kept waiting an hour because somebody didn;t turn up, when we arrrived at the hotel we were told the driver had been phoning to say that we hadn't got off the plane!!!!

We travelled with 2 friends who had never been to Lake Garda before and they were lost for words when we arrived with the spectacular views from our balconies across the lake the mountains and the wonderful setting of the hotel, needless to say they will be returning again.

The rooms we had were adjoining and very comfortable, clean and the bathroom was well equipped and clean towels every day. The breakfast was continental but plenty of it even if you didn't come down to breakfast until late.

We had some excellent meals at different restaurants but especially at "Pedro's" once again he really made you welcome as always the food was 1st class.

After reading previous comments about the hotel i would just like to say that our 1st stay at the "Augusta" which we booked through Thomson's we were in a room without a balcony which was quite depressing but the next time we paid extra to have a balcony which was well worth the money and now everytime we request a balcony and this time we had rooms 36 and 37 and it was by far the best ever.

All we can say is "cannot wait to return to Malcesine and hotel Agusta" it is our idea of heaven.

Just a note you wouldn't need to take an alarm clock with you as the bell at the castle rings every hour and chimes once on the half hour then a minute later the church bells do the same.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a balcony well worth it so you can spend time watching the world go by.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in July and agree with a lot of the comment from previous reviews. The hotel is very comfortable but we travelled with Crystal Holidays (Thomsons) which meant we got a room with no balcony. The stay would have been improved if we had a better view or balcony. The rooms to the front means if it is warm at night you need to choose between paying 6 euros for air conditioning per night or sleeping with the windows open and be woken by the traffic around 7 am. The hotel has good facilities compared with others nearby with a good size pool, small gym and outdoor jacuzzi. The garden around the pool also has a slide/climbing frame/swing for kids and a skittle lane and table tennis table.
The cable car is right outside your hotel so easy to get to early which is a must in high season with waits up to 90 mins if you go later on. The tourist bus stops outside which, for 1 euro, will take you on a short tour of the area and useful for getting to some of the restaurants and beaches outside of the resort.
Malcesine has great ferry links to the other resorts in the north of the lake, Limone/Riva and Torbole and bus links to the East of Garda and Verona. All of these are within a 10 minute walk of the hotel.
Martin who runs the hotel is very helpful and informative on where to eat and ideas for what to do. He also is a font of knowledge on the weather you can expect. The staff all try to be helpful and make sure you enjoy your stay. The hotel is mainly used by German couples and families and so the amount of English spoken is limited but the staff do try their best.
Breakfasts are continental with fruit, cereal, meat, cheese etc. They try to vary the fruit, cheese and cakes each day but if you are there a fortnight it does become repetitive.
I would love to go back to the hotel but would look to book direct to get a choice of rooms. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
