“More than meets the eye.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

When we first checked in & got to our room, it seemed a little basic & drab. That said, we were in Malcesine for a wedding & planning on being fairly active for our weeks stay, so it had everything we needed [i.e. bed & a shower!]. The room & indeed the other public areas of the hotel were very clean & tidy. Surprisingly, the hotel was very quiet considering its central location.
The service is what really impressed me about Hotel Modena. Claudia, who seemed to be everywhere at once, couldn’t do enough to help us. Examples of this included opening up the dining room early for breakfast one morning, as we were leaving for a trip before the normal opening hours, numerous packed lunches & understanding with my diet [I’m vegetarian, but some of the food options were adapted to suit this], nothing seemed to be too much trouble for Claudia & the team. I can’t praise her enough.
We enjoyed the food every night, we’re not what you would call ‘foodies’ but we enjoyed pretty much everything that was put in front of us at meal times & really appreciated the extensive continental breakfast.
In summary, there is more than meets the eye with Hotel Modena & I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a friendly hotel in the heart of this beautiful town.

This hotel is not posh but it is clean,comfortable and welcoming, and right in the centre of Malcesine. The buffet breakfast, described as 'continental' is more extensive than you might expect with cereal, toast, eggs to boil, cheese and ham, fruit, jams etc. Evening meals are set with a couple of choices but I think I would go for B and B; there are so many places to eat literally steps from the hotel door. We found there was quite a bit of noise from the street some nights, people not traffic, so if you prefer a quiet night I suggest asking for a room that doesn't face the street. Claudia (manager?) was very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: If you like to look out and watch the world pass by below, choose a room at the front. If you don...

We stayed at this hotel in june 2011 (late getting to do review) as some friends of ours got married at the castle. The hotel is in an excellent location, just slightly away from the late bars so you do not get all of the noise. The rooms are clean with everything you need. Breakfast was a good selection something for everybody, there was a cold and hot selection. The best part of the hotel is how welcoming the staff are especially Gino, I had to wake up early on the day of the wedding to iron my shirt, Gino set the iron and board up for me and also made me an espresso at about 6 in the morning, the staff work very hard and very long hours but are always professional.

Tried to find a reasonable hotel for our trip to our sons wedding at Malcesine Caste. Although not a million miles away because of the hilly nature the hotel was not the nearest, however as the wedding was one day the rest of our stay was fantastic because of the location of this hotel. Well within the towns pedestrian precincts and close to car park as we drove to Italy from U.K. (can highly recommend the drive especially through Austria) Our host gino was exceptional, very dry but most attentive and hospitable, nothing was too much trouble. Albeit it seemed a more of a one man band as he appeared to do everything bar cleaning we could not fault this hotel especially as friends had booked into a nearby 4 star which I considered inferior. Would highly recommend for value, location and convenience. Basil sorry Gino the perfect host.

Don't go to this hotel expecting luxurious accommodation but you do get value for money and exceptional location. We had read previous comments re the hotel manager Gino. He is curt and his humour dry but he runs a clean and well run hotel. The breakfasts were good, the rooms and showers clean. The noise level could be a bit loud but you are literally in the centre of all the wonderful things Malcesine has to offer. A lake to wonder at, safe streets to find good food and drinks and lovely small shops to buy Italian goods in.

Stayed here in sept 12. This hotel has a great location, in the middle of old malcesine and right next to a lake boat taxi so you can easily visit other towns around the lake. The staff were friendly, especially the propiater who was more than happy to let me use his computer and printer to print stuff I should have printed in the UK.
The breakfast is basic but on the plus side the room we had was big with a large bathroom. Only downside was the noisy layout of the rooms, it was easy to think there was an elephant staying above.
All in all it was an enjoyable stay.

We stayed here for a night in June 2012 on our way from Milan to Venice. Malcesine is a very nice mediveal town along Lake Garda and this hotel is located right in the middle of the town centre. The hotel is basic and reasonably clean given the age of the hotel. It's priced just about right at EUR 65 for a night that we paid. The breakfast was a bit limited as you would expect from any 2 star hotel but there was freshly baked bread available that we enjoyed. The service was very good and the hotel staff did everything to make sure our stay was comfortable. The reception, which was merely a desk and a chair, used to get closed after 11:00pm and the main entrance door to the hotel used to be shut. We were given keys to the main door to enter the hotel after 11.
