Couldn't agree more with IanStewart1946. WiFi was a bargain €3 for the duration of the stay. We mistakenly brought the wrong plug adapter but were kindly given one to use for free. We were also able to keep a bottle of the house wine in the fridge at reception to take the occasional glass. The views of the lake from our room balcony were superb. Very short walk to plenty of lovely restaurants, bars and shops in the picturesque town of malcesine. Plan to return next year.

We have recently returned from a 4 night stay & must say it is a great little place to stay & great value for money compared to other places in the same area.

ROOMS: they are very clean & basic. The bathroom is very cosy, but never mind!! The balcony view towards the lake was lovely & wasn't bothered about the road. There is no A/C as such but have big ceiling fans which do the job!!

BREAKFAST: served 8:00-10:00. Lovely homemade breads. Selection of ham, cheeses & fruit. also cereals, tea, coffee & juice.

OUTSIDE: there is a lovely pool area & gardens with sun loungers, however I don't think there were enough at times.

There wasn't a bar as such but you can get drinks in reception. There are no tea & coffee facilities in the room but if you are back by 22:30 you can get a brew from the reception.

THE AREA: the apartments are located near the centre of town on the main road (traffic noise wasn't a problem). You can walk to the centre of town along the main road which takes 10 mins or the scenic way along the lake which takes about 15 mins (left out of casa popi, 200 yards cross over the main road and down the steps).

The cable car up to mount Baldo is well worth a trip, great views over the lake.
Boat trips to Limone & Riva are worth a trip too!!

Room Tip: The lake view, great views and sunny too!!

Third year in a row for my wife and I. On a scale of 1 - 10 Casa Popi gets a 12+. It is a beautiful family run hotel which is also very handy for the old town of Malcesine and is a great location for travelling to all the other resorts up and down the lake. A must is a visit by ferry to Limone and Riva. The two sisters who run it are so warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. As many other reviewers have said the pool, garden area, rooms and the breakfast room are always so clean and well looked after. In fact I cannot think of any negatives at Casa Popi. Well done Familia Lombardi and look forward to seeing you again in the near future. By the way, if you are interested in the history of Malcesine and Lake Garda visit the Castle. It costs 6 euros (4 euros if you 65 or over) and is well worth it.

Room Tip: Upper floor facing the lake - breathtaking view especially in the morning when the rising sun strike...

Just returned from three nights at Casa Popi. What a lovely family owned hotel, superbly run by two sisters, who work so hard to enure your stay is a memorable one. Bedrooms are fairly small but perfectly adequate. Very comfortable bed, an efficient ceiling fan & free room safe. Spotlessly clean & quality furnishings & fittings. Small balcony with fabulous rooms overlooking the lake. Although noisier on the front with fairly busy road, the views were worth it. This was not a problem as great shutters for eliminating noise & sun!! It was incredibly hot whilst we were there, so the beautiful pool came into its own. Plenty of sun beds & drinks available from reception area. Breakfast was superb, with gorgeous home made bread. At €59 per room, per night, what fantastic value. Pool towels available for hire at €2 per stay. Certainly hope to return here.

Stayed for 3 nights in room with balcony overlooking lake for 59€ a night and this included lovely breakfast so excellent value & great location. Run by two lovely sisters who do everything & work so hard. Everywhere so clean & well maintained. Pool and garden are superb with plenty of beds & umbrellas. Just to clarify, towels in room are included - extra towels for sunbeds are 2€ for however many days you want to keep them. Excellent WiFi 3€ for whole of stay so again great value. No aircon but powerful ceiling fan in room. Free safe in room. Poolside drinks available from reception. Two ways to walk into centre - direct 5 mins or scenic lakeside 10/15 mins. Got owner Rosa to organise private transfer for 4 to Verona Airport for 100€ - super service from Vito & journey time 70 mins. Alternative was shared transfer for 16.40€ each but would take a lot longer. All in all, just what we wanted & we loved it. Would definitely go back.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday . We stayed at Hotel Casa Popi, a perfect choice for a low budget hotel with a genuine Italian feel. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms basic but comfortable and the location perfect for a short walk into town. Our room was at the front of the hotel, overlooking the lake but by the side of the busy road. However we did not find this spoilt our enjoyment in any way. Casa Popi serve a lovely fresh breakfast and I cannot praise them highly enough for their service and help in helping us organise our transfers. A lovely holiday.

We stayed here mid June with two other couples. We all had garden/pool view rooms as we had heard that the lake view rooms were noisy as it is on a busy road. Good move! The rooms are basic but very clean and have everything you need. We had a hairdrier in our room but our friends didn't. We think the owners will lend you one if needs be though. Choice at breakfast consists of a selection of freshly baked breads every day, tinned fruits, cakes, cereals, cold meats and hard boiled eggs. You won't go hungry. The hotel is only a five minute walk from Malcesine town but there are no pavements on the busy road so part of the walk in is a bit dicey as the Italian drivers aren't the best drivers in the world. We paid 434 euros for the room for our weeks stay. Fantastic value. The town is lovely and very pretty. There are plenty of good inexpensive restaurants around with fabulous lake views. Don't miss a visit to the castle. You get views to die for from the top. Make sure you aren't at the top on the hour or half hour or you will be deafened by the bell! We visited Limone, Riva and lastly Bardolino which was our favourite. All in all we had a brilliant holiday. We would recommend Casa Popi to anyone unless of course you are looking for five star luxury but at these prices you obviously won't be getting that.

Room Tip: Have a garden room on the right side of the hotel..room one was good.
