“Best little hotel in Malcesine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Tucked away down a small quiet side street in the hills above Malcesine, this little family run hotel with a pool & parking is an absolute gem. The owner and her son were very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are a bit small (not unusual in Europe) but they were nicely decorated, immaculate and had comfortable beds. Our room on the second floor had a lovely view of the castle & lake & a huge balcony - perfect for enjoying a glass of wine with friends after a day of sightseeing. The breakfast in the downstairs diningroom & terrace was plentiful - eggs any way you wanted, cereals, yogurt, a good variety of breads & cheeses & lots of fruit. Excellent value for the money - we'd definitely stay here again next time we're in Lago di Garda.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 7 - huge balcony and stunning view of the castle & lake.

Great location, just a short stroll to Malcesine town and Castle, immaculately clean, friendly family run Hotel and fantastic fresh selection for breakfast :)
The View from our very spacious balcony looked out upon the Castle-beautiful.
Cable car was well worth the view but maybe better when you haven't had one too many the night before!

Room Tip: Maybe above living quarters :)

Welcoming family run hotel with lovely little garden. Room was a bit small but comfortable enough,perfectly clean with balcony and lake view.(2nd floor).
Quiet and nice location just few minutes easy walk to the centre of Malcesine.

Hotel Garni Ischia was our two night stop on the way to Tuscany so we simply looked for some clean base from which we can explore the lake and the town....but we found even more than that.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to all people who do not spend vacation in the hotel room.

Wonderful B&B, very helpful patron, good bikes to hire, nice pool and a quiet spot. There is plenty of parking if driving, but the coach service to Verona airport plus the boat services made a car unnecessary. Malcesine is big enough to have a good range of restaurants and shops but no discos that I can recall (suited me). It is going to be really hard to find a better palce to holiday.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views if lake side.

Small and friendly with clean, pleasant rooms, nice pool for cooling off after cycling, great location, and run by a family who will do everything they can to help you make the most of your stay. Nothing is too much trouble. Breakfasts are good and the bar is very reasonably priced. Great restaurants within 15 minute walk. If you like big brand names with all the frills- this is not for you- but if you want a warm welcome, value for money, and quality of service- this is highly recommended. Also one of the best little towns on the lake.

Il mio fidanzato ed io abbiamo passato 3 notte in quest'albergo. The hotel had oriental touches, including our room, which included a gorgious view of Lake Garda as well as M. Baldo. It was a convenient walk to the funivia and centro. The swimming pool was a welcome respite when we were too tired to do anything else. The owner hlep us get tickets to a piano concert, rented us mountain bikes, and recommended some great restaurants. The breakfast was filling and nourishing. We found it to be a great value, great location, and more!!

We lucked into the downstairs apt with kitchenette first night. 250 m walk to a lake Garda beach and easy walk into the city center, castle and cable car too. Proprietors were super friendly. Has a small pool out back, good continental breakfast plus eggs how you like them. Doesn't take credit cards and ATM is a km away in town. Parking free and on premises. Recommend you eat suppers out as hotel only does a light snack at that hour or microwaveable meals from a limited menu. Our room was immaculately clean and functional. Proprietor speaks great english, has a great sense of humor and is very helpful. malcesine and limone across the lake by boat ride were both charming and beautiful. Stunning views from the castle and great markets, shops, restaurants in town.
