“Great hotel, lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2010

We stayed at the Hotel Benacus in July when getting married in Malcesine. 7 others plus a small baby from our party stayed at the hotel and all enjoyed their stay. We arrived late at night, about midnight, and Roberto was there to meet us and help with our bags. The rooms were very clean with ample space and we had a balcony with lake view.The hotel is family run and has a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The pool was very clean and is surrounded by grass which was ideal for the baby. Breakfast was served from 8am - 10am and there was always plenty of selection - cereals, yogurts, meats, eggs, cheese, fruit, selection of breads, jams, tea, coffe and juices. It is a nice walk into the town from the hotel along the lake front with a few really nice restaurants on the way. There is also a couple of supermarkets right outside the hotel and a bus stop if you fancy doing any trips. When we left Roberto and his sister (sorry I can't remember your name!) helped us to book our bus and train to Venice. We will definitely return to Malcesine and stay at the Hotel Benacus again.

Lake Garda is beautiful and Hotel Benacus is centrally located. The family who runs it are friendly and helpful. Not expecting much for breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are clean and comfortable for the price.

our 3rd vist to the benacus, and once again we had a fantastic holiday. Nothing too much trouble for Roberto, Marissa they were always helpful, kind and friendly. The hotel is very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is lovely with a great variety and you can eat inside or out. Whichever room you have there is a stunning view of the mountains (glass of wine in hand PERFECT!) A beautiful 20 minute stroll along the lakeside and you are in malcesine. The tourist bus is handy too (1 euro) if you prefer to ride.
Will definately be back in 2011 Can't wait!!!!!

This hotel is genuinely wonderful. Roberto was so helpful and did evrything he could to ensure that we had a good stay.

We had balconies at the front of the hotel which had a bit of a view of the lake. There was also a view of the mountains and garden if you stayed at the back of the hotel. In addition, there is a pool out in the garden.

We travelled as 3 couples to Lake Garda. We caught a train from Milan to Desenzano del Garda and then caught a ferry across the Lake, which took a couple of hours, but was an incredible way to arrive in Malcesine.

We walked up through the town and caught a taxi to the hotel. After that it was easy to catch the local minibus into the town or to the cable car up the mountain (costs €1 and runs once an hour) or walked down the path opposite and along the lakeside.

The main bus stop (Val di Sogno) is right outside of the hotel which enables you to get up to Riva del Garda and Torbole (to the north) or down to Garda, Lasize and Verona. Bus tickets can be purchased at the nesagent two doors down.

A truly great hotel in a wonderful part of the world - we didn't want to come home!!

I can't recommend this hotel highly enough!

My husband and I spent l0 nights in this hotel in June. We asked for a lake view and were not disappointed. We had a room on the top floor and looked out on the lake and mountains. Roberto and his sister were very welcoming and most helpful. Breakfast was good with plenty of fruit, cheeses, cold meats and bread. It does get a little boring after l0 days but that's to be expected. It was ag reat location with the tourist bus stop just beside us and the supermarket across the road. The pool and garden are lovely and very relaxing. Unfortunately the weather during our stay was disappointing but however the hotel even providfed the umbrellas we needed. I would definetly recommend Hotel Benacus to anyone visiting Malcesine.

Stayed at the the hotel for 7 nights as we were in Malcescine for a wedding. Location was great just a 15 minute walk into centre of town along Lake Garda (fabulous views) or tourist bus (1 Euro each) stop directly outside hotel. Hotel was of a very high standard, cleanilness was top draw as was the extremely helpful owners and staff - nothing too much trouble. We had breakfast and lunch at the hotel and was of a a very good standard. Exceptional value for money.
Owners Roberto and Marissa greeted guests personally upon arrival making it very welcoming. We are most defintely returning and will highly recommend to family and friends.

This is a lovely family run hotel where nothing is too much trouble. Do not be put off that it does not have lake views - the lake is only a 5 minute walk away as the service levels and quality of the breakfast more than compensate for this. The buffet breakfast is superb with plenty of fresh fruit and a good selection of breads. Only the best quality meats and cheeses are served - you will never be bored with this breakfast. Hygiene levels are excellent and everywhere is kept in immaculate condition. The garden is lovely for relaxing in and has a nice swimming pool where light lunches are served. This hotel certainly provides good value for money and a lovely family atmosphere. Can't wait to return.
