“Wonderful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

We stayed in Hotel Augusta for our daughters wedding. We booked 3 superior rooms for us & family in the villa. All rooms had a small fridge, hair dryer & for a daily charge wifi internet access & airconditioning (from 18:30 to 6:30 only) & the most beautiful view of the balconies overlooking the lake & the castle.
The hotel is in a convenient location to the town centre.
The cable car station is directly opposite the hotel entrance.
The pool area is set in lovely gardens & the jacuzzi (indoors with glass doors wide open to the gardens) is fabulous.
The rooms are cleaned spotlessly & towels changed daily.
Breakfat is from 8am till 10am and serves the ususal continental breakfast (no fry-up), which was fine for us. The coffe machine is great, anything you want from hot water to cappuccino.
A truly lovely hotel. I have read other reviews regarding the cost of the hotel & airconditioning, but for such a location and hotel we were quite happy to pay.
I rather pay a little extra to have to have a fantastic holiday!
I hope that we will visit Malcesine again & I hope to stay at the Augusta again.

Room Tip: Stay in superior rooms in the villa with lake views!

On the plus side, this hotel is well looked after, the swimming pool and garden are good, as is the breakfast. It is very convenient for Malcesine. However there is not an air of generosity about the hotel, you are charged for air conditioning at 6 euros a night, the safe is charged for and also the wifi (although there is a computer in the public rooms that you can use free if you don't want privacy). You are also asked to sort your rubbish for recycling and put it into the dustbins at the front of the hotel.

The hotel is situated on a very busy road and if you have a mountain view room you overlook both the road and other people's apartments. The air conditioning is only on from 6.30pm - 6.30am and in high summer once that goes off the rooms get very hot, we didn't want to open the windows because of the noise from traffic, hence not a lot of sleep. We had paid extra for a balcony but didn't use it because it was not a pleasant place to sit it you like peace and quiet. I think that the hotel is probably nicer out of season.

We had booked with Thomsons and had to leave for the airport at 6.35am, the hotel did not provide any breakfast on that day, we were told to let ourselves out. Worst of all they switch the lift off at night and we had to carry our luggage down from the second floor. Other people on our coach had either had breakfast in their hotel, or been provided with a packed lunch.

Malcesine is a wonderful place to explore, a trip up Monte Baldo is recommended - you can spend a good day walking up there, we saw lots of birds and wildlife. Buying a dual ticket for the castle and the cable-car saves you 5 euros. The castle has a really good natural history exhibition, fabulous views and is a great place to explore. Pick up a welcome card from your hotel and you can also get discounts on the boats. I would also recommend going up the clock tower in Riva, the views are well worth the climb and the 1 euro entry. Food can be expensive in the restaurants but many of the cafes serve pizza and snacks at reasonable prices.

Service buses around the lake are cheap and fairly frequent from Malcesine, although they can be a bit slow in high season because of the traffic. A trip to Verona took 2 hours, but it's well worth it and you do get to see things on the way. There are lots of agencies in Malcesine offering organised trips, the prices seem to be the same at all of them. We went to Venice, and thought that it was good value for money.

We had a good holiday, but I would not recommend the Augusta in high season if you enjoy a peaceful place to relax when you get back from sight-seeing.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the castle are probably quieter.

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...
