My wife and I stayed here for 2 weeks inSept/Oct in a double deluxe room,modern and very clean with lovely views of the lake and mountains.We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were more than happy with our choice of hotel,However, I have to say that it is more suited for the German tourist,which is not surprising as 90% of the tourists in Malcecine are indeed from Germany so most hotels here would be much the same in that respect.
Breakfast was varied and plentiful,clean towels every day,and the brothers who run the hotel were very efficient,helpful and polite at all times
A bit of a walk uphill from the lake but we we soon got used to it.
A few english channels on the t.v would have been nice as the BBC news channel gets a little bit monotonous after 2 weeks.
This hotel is much better than its 2 star rating and should be at least 3 star,and if you are going to Malcecine,try staying here,you will not be disappointed

We were travelling to Lake Garda for a Wedding taking place the 2nd week in Sept and booked this hotel for four of us that were travelling to wedding, We had a lovely stay in hotel Vancanze 2000 and even though it was a small hotel it is very modern & comfortable inside! The Owners Manuel & his brother were very nice and always on hand if you needed anything! They remain on Reception until around 11pm which was fantastic as we had a late arrival over to Lake Garda. The doors to the hotel close at midnight so you get a card with a key code to access the main door if you are home later than midnight which was great. The breakfast was perfect in the morning and is served from 8.30am - 10.30am. The swimming pool was great as we practically had it to ourselves everyday, I'd say this was due to the number of people who stayed here as it is a small hotel, also we stayed on the 3rd floor of the hotel but I don't think other guests knew that there was an entrance just as you come out of the lift to bring you up to a big roof top terrace that had amazing views of the Lake and the whole area from it, It had chairs and sun loungers up there too so we also spent time sunning ourselves up there & enjoying the views. the town is only a 10minute walk away & the Cable car is also a 10minute walk away! When you come down the walkway from the hotel you come to the main road, you can walk to the town & Cable Car up the main road which is dangerous as they do not have foot paths so your best option is to take the scenic route which is crossing the road as you come to the main road and there is a concrete path/steps between two houses that bring you on to the lake and you can walk up the lovely promenade to the town! The town has many shops and restaurants and the ice creams are to die for! I would recommend this hotel to other people who want a small comfortable place to stay. They will also organize a transfer from the airport to Hotel Vacanze 2000, which is great! We needed a transfer on our way back to the airport & Manuel & his brother organized it for us, They have a great local taxi-man called Lucas who is very friendly and owns a comfortable 8seater taxi and charged us €70 cheaper than the transfer Agencies! So all round we had a lovely comfortable, pleasant & hassle free stay and would definitely stay again. Please note most of the hotels outside the town are situated on hills as it is a mountainous region so even though Hotel Vancaze is on the hills it is not too far up the hill, maybe a 2 minute walk from the main road.

We (a family of 4) stayed at Hotel Vacanze in one of the first floor apartments for 4 nights in August 2012. The room had obviously been recently renovated and was immaculate in terms of facilities and cleanliness. Manuel and his brother were always on hand to provide helpful advice and great tips (particularly the nearest restaurant by the lake run by Antonio). The air-conditioning was a life-saver and the pool / garden were a hit with us and the kids. The short distance to the lake and the town was ideal (quiet). all in all a great little hotel and well worth the very reasonable rates.

We stayed at Hotel Vacanze 2000 for 8 nights in August 2012. We were really impressed with the quality of the hotel, the room, the breakfast, the brothers' helpfulness! We went for our first wedding anniversary and they had chilled a bottle of prosecco and a box of chocolates in the fridge for us, a really nice touch. The price of the hotel is very competitive compared to many in Malcesine and aside from a steep walk up from the lake it was just as good, if not better than other hotels at double the price. The transfer they arranged for us from Verona airport was very easy and reasonably priced. Thank you Hotel Vacanze!

We stayed at the Vacanze 2000 for 6 nights in August 2012. We had two rooms, both deluxe rooms on the top floor. These rooms are big, with a very attractive contemporary design. They have air-conditioning, which is very important in August. The rooms overlook the lake and the views from the balcony are fantastic. A very good quality breakfast is included in the price. The pool area is quiet and attractive, with plenty of loungers and parasols.

The hotel is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the centre of Malcesine, along a path at the side of the lake. The last section is up quite a steep hill - good for walking off the pasta, but a little tiring.

If you are driving, make sure that you take the owners advice and use the entrance road behind the hotel. The road at the front of the hotel is very narrow and steep.

The brothers who run the hotel are friendly and welcoming and are perfect hosts.

I would recommend this hotel. It is excellent value for money and, when we return to Lake Garda, will certainly stay here again.

We stayed at Hotel Vacanze 2000 when we got married in Malcesine this summer. It really was amazing. We had lots of friends and family staying in other local hotels for the week of our wedding and our hotel was by far and away the best. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the minute we walked in reception. High quality finish throughout the hotel. Beautiful rooms with a great view. Always kept clean. Breakfast was good. Highly recommended. We'll be back for many anniversaries to come (we hope)!

My partner surprised me with a trip to Malcesine for my birthday and he done amazing in picking (in my opinion) the best section of Lake Garda as a whole.
He was in contact with Manuel from the start who was a massive help to my partners planning, suggesting the best things to do in the area as well as restaurants to eat at and how to find the hotel from Verona.
The hotel itself was lovely and the veiw from the balcony was amazing! They kindly gave a complimentary bottle of prosecco and chocolates in our room to celebrate my birthday which went down very nicely after our long day of travelling and walking round Verona city.
I thought Malcesine was by far the prettiest area and it meant you didn't have to travel far to get to the main sites such as the castle and Mont Baldo. It also was not as expensive as you imagine Italy to be. We will definitely go back but there's sooooo many other places I also want to visit! Overall I would say it was definitely the most romantic destination I've ever been to and I think our best trip to date. The boy done good, he's a keeper :-)
