“Great value for money”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

A friend an I took advantage of a cheap deal for a week staying in Malcesine and flying from Southampton to Verona. Although only two star, Hotel Alpino punches above its weight in my opinion. It was not the Ritz, but our twin room with balcony was more than adequate and was cleaned daily and sheets changed once during the week. The beds were very comfortable, and we had a choice of soft and firmer pillows in the room which made a big difference for me. The en-suite shower room had fresh towels every day. Every room is equipped with air conditioning which was great. The staff were friendly and enormously helpful - I had not taken a beach towel and they loaned me one for the duration of my stay. I would advise B&B as there are many interesting and lovely restaurants in and around Malcesine for dinner - our favourite being Taverna dei Capitani - well worth a visit or three! Malcesine is without doubt the best place to be on Lake Garda - five mins walk to the cable car for Monti Baldo, two mins walk to the lakeside and harbour, very picturesque, fascinating castle, but importantly at the mountainous end of the lake and on the eastern side so that one could enjoy fabulous sunsets over the mountains. I would go again in a heartbeat and would happily return to Hotel Alpino.

We originally stayed in Hotel Alpino a couple of years ago and loved it then. We went back to Lake Garda again this year but, unfortuntely, the hotel was full. However, we went there for dinner one night and I'd like to highly recommend this place again. The night we went, one of our group left her camera bag on a chair. When she realised she no longer had it and asked the staff if they knew where it was, they immediately told her that they had it and had put it in the hotel safe and it was then returned promptly. On top of this, the food was amazing. So, another recommendation for Hotel Alpino, a great place with good food, great service and very friendly staff.

And forgot to write a great review then ....great location and the staff were very accomadating as well. We ate dinner at the restauant attached and was quite good .Location is good within walking distance to all you will need in town. Parking was accomadated as well for us as they do not have a "parking lot" per sie.
Nice to hear they are still making people happy ...you will not be dissapointed with Hotel Alipino !

We recently stayed here for 3 nights as we were in Lake Garda for a friends wedding. We were so thrilled with our choice. Great location, right on the main square, minutes walk from the shops restaurants and the lake. Great value for money considering what you can pay in Malcescine for a lot less. We stayed in room 204 which had a balcony overlooking the square. The room itself was immaculately clean and had everything you needed. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was not extensive but had everything you needed really.
The restaurant is one of the best in the area and you do benefit of 10% off your bill as a staying guest.
The only slight downsides was the size of the shower cubicle was on the small size and there was no on site parking although this wasn't too much of a problem as there was a public car park 5 minutes walk away charged at 10 euros per day
If we were to return to Lake Garda we would stay here again. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend the Hotel Alpino to anyone. Regardless of how many stars a hotel may have it could not have been cleaner and in better decorative order. The rooms are small but have all that is needed and are comfortable. The owner and all his staff are so friendly and attentive to your every need to make your holiday a good one. The choice of food is vast, well prepared and very tasty. We changed from B&B just before we went to half board and were so pleased with our decision. The hotel was everything you could want for a good relaxing holiday.

Everything good that I have read is true. Domenico the owner and his staff could not have done anything more to please our party of 8. We were only B&B but decided the food was better than most restuarants we had tried so ate in 3 evenings. And 10% off ! No pool but great value and great service. Restaurant full every night, breakfast the most disapointing but everything else more than compensated. All of our well travelled party were impressed and Malchesini is a great resort.

Room Tip: No pool and no room service but not important as the hotel is small.

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Alpino, we had read all the great reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel is right in the centre of Malcesine yet only 5 mins from a lovely lakeside walk. It was spotlessly clean and all the staff were friendly and very helpful. We were on a bed a breakfast basis, breakfast was very good. We ate in the restaurant most evenings and it was excellent value, guests at the hotel get 10 percent off the bill too. We did try a few other restaurants but none were as good as the Alpino. Dont be put off by the 2 star rating, ok it doesn't have a pool but everything else about it is 4 star, it also has free wifi throughout. The hotel is only 10 min walk to the cable car to the top of mount Baldo which is well worth a visit . The bus station is also only 5 mins away. We caught the local bus to Verona which at just under 6 euros each, each way, is much cheaper than booking on a trip and as Verona is quite compact you can easily find your way around.
