“The warmest hotel in Malcesine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We have stayied in Catullo for many years. The owners are full of hospitality and are Always trying to make you feel at home. their breakfast is allways very fresh with scrambled eggs an bacon! The poolarea is very well kept and the garden with all the olivetrees makes it a very nice Place.

Room Tip: overlooking the lake is a Winner!

What a lovely hotel, friendly owners, spotless comfy rooms, delicious breakfast with great quality produce and a really interesting garden! AND the pool is well worth a cool dip! Delicious snacks for lunch. Very close to both the town of Malcesine and Monte Baldo. PS. Very good restaurant just out through the little gate and down the hill on opposite side of the road for delicious evening food. Sorry we only found it on the last night!

We were 13 persons from Norway who stayed at this hotel in July 2011. It is a very nice hotel, clean and with a tasty breakfast,- and the best cappuccino ever! Fantastic pool-area with drinks/snacks. We can recommend this hotel to anyone and we will be back!!

I had been visiting hotel Catullo before, and this time I decided to bring 22 persons from our company, to join my good experiences from my earlier stay.
We came all the way from Norway, and had a long journey, before we reached Hotel Catullo on Friday evening 27 of may. I was of cause excited to hear what my colleges though about the hotel, and that one went out happy!
They all liked the hotel, and thought that the hotel where nice, clean, quiet, and only a few steps from the Centrum of Malcesine. The swimming pool in the garden gave some of us a nice refreshing break from the sun.
One our way back home Monday, I could hear many of my colleges talking about coming back to the beautiful hotel, and the lovely city of Malcesine. I`m pretty sure that they will.
One of us had an accident with the shower, so that some water came out in his room. Water went down thru the floor, and came out the sealing in the bar, that was just underneath this room. Electricity in the 1 floor broke down for a shorter time, because of this, and that was no good. Anyway, it was our fault, and you Maurizio stayed calm as always, and took control of the situation. I`m sure we made some trouble fore you when that happened, but as you told me, “things can go wrong from time to time, don’t think about it any more”
Thank`s to the host family Maurizio and Antonella for great service, and for making a pleasant stay for all of us!
I am sure I will be back next year, and some of my colleges also.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2011

We stayed here for 4 nights in June, having read the reviews on here I was a little concerned but was pleasantly surprised.

The hotel is set slightly back from the busy main road so is quieter than some others, the pool was large with plenty of beds around, pretty well kept gardens surrounding the hotel, rooms were very basic...akin to an Ibis hotel room and the double room we booked was actually a twin however it was spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom and the balcony. The hotel breakfast is pretty good too as long as you get down there before 9am otherwise there was nothing left.

Really had no complaints other than the room being basic.

I travelled to Malcesine for a friends wedding earlier this year (along with Jobo 1881 - review below) to celebrate a friends wedding. We decided to stay at the Hotel Catullo as the bride and groom were staying there and it was also one of only a few hotels in the town with a pool. Upon arrival we were told that our booking "had been lost", unsurprisingly, the paid deposit remained very much found. The manager, however, informed us that he had arranged for us to stay at a nearby hotel and that the stay would be complimentary. Lovely we thought. He even said we could use the pool and still have breakfast. Even better. Imagine my surprise then, when at midnight the day before we are due to come home, there is a note pinned to our door telling us to go to the Hotel Catullo to pay the bill before we catch the trasfer bus to the airport. The next day we went to see the manager who insisted that he hadnt told us he would pay for our stay. After a VERY long discussion he eventually just turned his back on us....literally!! He wouldn't tell us what time the transfer bus was arriving so we had to wait at the bus depot and hope for the best! I have travelled around the world and visited Italy a number of times before but I have honestly never met anyone in the service industry quite so rude, arrogant and unhelpful in all my life! He also made other members of the group that did stay there unwelcome and also uncomfortable at times, telling one that he would never let a british wedding party stay there again!! The owner of the other hotel was so welcoming, we wished we had booked there from the start. Please do not give this man your money!
