The location, right on the water in Malcesine, is this hotel's main asset. The rooms were average, nothing special but comfortable, quiet and clean and breakfast was slightly below average. But the view from our room all but made up for it!
Convenient parking is just a few hundred meters from the hotel, which was very easy to find. We took a short sail boat trip, and it departed just steps from our door. We were surrounded by great restaurants (go to Al Gondoliere!!) and all the sights.
It's pretty annoying that the entire bottom floor is a restaurant. A not-so-great, incredibly-overpriced one at that. To get in to or out of the room we had to pass diners every time. And forget asking for a food recommendation. On our first day there, we asked where you could get a good gelato. They of course told us right there in the restaurant. We were suckered in to paying 10-euro for giant cup of cheap ice cream and un-ripe fruit.
If ever back in Garda, I'd probably stay somewhere else. Actually, I'd probably stay in an entirely different town on the lake.
