“Fantastic,Friendly and in a great Location”
Reviewed January 6, 2010

The Hotel Ideal is in a great location, just a short stroll to the beautiful town of Malcesine....The large pool is very spacious with amazing view's of the town......
It is a family run hotel and is ideal.......,
One of the family members is a character and you have to adjust to his sense of humour.
We have stayed here numerous time's and it is good value for money ......
Great hotel ........

Loved stay in Malcesine. Main area was 5 minutes walk down hill from hotel. Great pool to relax in.

Staff were great and really helpful and rooms were cleaned every day with fresh towels.

Continental breakfast every morning. The hotel has a bar downstairs but no adjoining restaurant however loads of places to eat within minutes walk.

Takes about hour and half from Verona airport. Hotel organised a bus collection and when we decided to get taxi back organised pick up for us.

There was no iron in the bedroom so may want to bring that withyou. There is also no kettle or fridge but the rooms are airconditioned and have hair dryer in bathroom.

Very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend the Hotel Ideal

My in-laws have been coming to the same hotel in the same part of Italy for many years now and after joining them I can understand why. I have now stayed at the Hotel Ideal on three occasions and enjoyed every minute of it. For those who want to enjoy a foreign country without the pampering you would expect in five star accomodation it provides a perfect base for exploring Lake Garda, or relaxing by the pool or in the beautiful garden area.

The rooms are a good size and kept in excellent order by the friendly staff who work at the hotel. The family who own and run the hotel are excellent company and are happy to help in any way they can. Although the hotel does not have a restaurant, this makes no difference as Malcesine has a vast amount of excellent places to eat at very low prices (compared to the UK anyway).

One of the best features of the Hotel is the swimming pool which is situated in the large garden area at the back of the hotel. Set on a small hill you have extensive views across the lake and surrounding mountains and they are specatular to say the least. The pool provides the perfect escape from the intense sun in Malcesine and it is always a relaxed and quiet atmosphere around it.

In the garden you can relax under the shade of the olive trees which is perfect for having lunch as we often did, simply buying fresh food from the supermarket 5 mins down the road and then borrowing plates etc from the hotel.

At the Lake there can be sporadic thunderstorms with spectacular lightning so having a balcony to sit and watch them is a big plus, getting a room at the back of the hotel is a good option as it is quieter than the front which is roadside.

Malcesine is a great place to relax and enjoy excellent weather, food and wine, it is only an hour away from Verona for those who love shopping or the opera so there is something for everyone. The Hotel Ideal is an inexpensive and dare I say ideal place to enjoy what the area has to offer. Trip number four won't be too far away.
