A very well situated hotel with nice and clean rooms. The garden and the pool where nice and clean as well and with a lovely view of the mountains on the other side of Lago di Garda. Good breakfast. Very friendly and service oriented staff that also speaks German and English. We stayed for a week.

We had a wonderful week in very comfortable surroundings. The hotel is in a terrific position to explore Malcesine but to also explore further afield along the lake. 5 to 10 minutes walk takes you to the ferry stop for the North of the lake tour. Room was very clean and comfortable and the cleaner was lovely. Swimming pool a... More

We enjoyed our stay one week stay - a family of four with two kids under 10. The centre of town is just a short walk away, and the beach is just beyond that - you can access everything Malcesine has to offer on foot from this Hotel. There is ample parking in shaded spots and a shaded garden in... More
