“Beautiful view and helpful staff”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I have just returned from Malcesine where I stayed 3 nights at the Parc Hotel Eden with my daughter. I don't normally add reviews to Tripadvisor but I was really impressed witht this hotel.

We arrived at lunchtime and were greeted outside when our taxi pulled up by the hotel owner/lady on Reception. We checked in and were then invited to dinner in the hotel restaurant that evening "on the house" (first night is free but subsequent nights we would have to pay for). We chose our meals and were then directed to our rooms.

The room was spotlessly clean with clean bed linen and fresh, white, soft towels in the bathroom. The furniture may be a little dated but don't let this put you off because the cleanliness certainly makes up for it. There is air conditioning and a TV with BBC World News available on it should you feel the need to keep up with events. There are extra pillows available if you want them - just ask Reception or the cleaning lady. There is also a minibar and bags of crisps and nuts in the rooms if you want them - not too expensive either.

The view from the balcony was simply stunning (I had asked for a lake view room but I was still taken aback by how amazing the view was). There was a table and chairs on the balcony so we could sit and admire the scene infront of us.

The Pool area, although a little tired looking, has plenty of sunbeds and parasols and, with its elevated position, again the views were incredible. If you're going to the pool ask Reception for the padded sunbed toppers. You'll then keep these until the end of your stay.

Dinner was nice (great pasta) with a lovely salad buffet and there is plenty of choice at Breakfast (bread rolls, ham, cheese, salami, boiled eggs, Danish toast, jams, fruit, cereal, juices, tea, coffee etc). The Waiter (Francesco) is a friendly chap and, like the lady on Reception, is really helpful.

The Beach is directly across the road from the hotel and is reached by an underpass through the hotel's parking garage. There is a snack bar on the beach with a bathroom to the side of it with a toilet, sink and shower (the bathroom is immaculate by the way). There's also an Ice Cream vendor that pulls up around 3pm and a Beach Bar Boat that comes along every now and again and stays briefly (the only noise you'll hear all day!)

I would recommend taking some form of padded mat with you to the beach though as it is stony and can be uncomfortable laying on just a towel. There is a shop as you approach Malcesine Town that sells beach items so you may be able to get a mat there - a thick yoga mat would be ideal. Also, beach shoes that you can wear in the water are helpful because of the stones.

We had a lovely couple of days lazing on the beach watching the various water sports going on and having a swim. The lake is cold but so refreshing on a hot day and it's lovely swimming in fresh, unsalty water for a change.

The hotel in not really within walking distance of Malcesine (although I understand there is a lakeside path that runs all the way from the hotel to the town but when we were there is was just too hot to walk that far). There is, however, a well organised Tourist Bus which you can catch by going under the same tunnel to reach the beach and then walk a few metres to the bus stop. The bus runs every hour at 20 minutes to the hour into town and then 20 minutes past the hour on the way back. It costs 1 euro 20 cents. On the way back you need to catch the bus outside the Tourist Information office which is opposite where the bus drops you on the way there and don't panic.... it takes a slightly different route on the way back initially but ends up back on the main road long before the stop for the hotel. The bus stop is outside the Hotel Sole but the driver was happy to drop us at the end of the path leading up to the Parc Hotel Eden as we were the last two on the bus.

Malcesine Town is beautiful with little cobbled streets (in the Old Town around the castle) and quaint little shops. We ate at some lovely restaurants and listened to some live music at Cafe Statuto on the Tuesday evening and at a restaurant by the port on the Wednesday.

All in all, our stay in this hotel was a lovely experience. The lady on reception was so helpful and really nice to talk to - her English is great! She informed us about the Tourist Bus, talked us through a map of Malcesine town and when I asked for some details about the castle she happily investigated for us. She also gave my teenage daughter a few English magazines to read. Nothing is too much trouble for her.

I would happily come back to this hotel and to Malcesine... I hope I do one day!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view room. You won't regret paying the little bit extra.

We chose this hotel for its views and it did not let us down! The most breathtaking views are from their swimming pool: mountains overlook you and you overlook the lake and even more mountains. It is also spectacular to look out from the bar terrace over the lake to see the beautiful lights of the towns.

Although the hotel does look a little tired in places,it is still clean and well presented. Our room was spacious and clean with a large and very comfortable bed. The view from our balcony was wonderful and did not fall short of the hotels description. I feel that the hotel was reasonably priced given the comfort of the room and the beautiful location.

The breakfast was large and accommodated for pretty much any need you could think of. We didn't eat in the restaurant however as I am a vegetarian.

The only thing to take note of is that the hotel is not IN Malcesine it is NEAR Malcesine. However we were fine as there is a tourist bus on the hour until 1am that takes you to Malcesine for a euro.The hotel is not within reasonable walking distance of the town and is better suited in location for visitors with a car.

I would highly recommend staying here and we certainly intend to visit again (with a car hire of course!)

The only thing the hotel was missing was Don Johnson.. it looked as though the hotel was straight out of an episode of 'Miami 'Vice'.. The location and staff were great, the hotel itself needs some work.. aside from the decor, it looks as though the owner has lost interest in the cleanliness of the rooms.. there's even an old Hotel Parc Eden 4-star sign placed behind an A/C unit in the parking lot.. I would stay again purely because the view from our room was stunning, it was right on the lake which was really nice, and the staff was great. The road can get noisy as well.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in June. He had a very large spacious room that faced both the hillside and the lake. Lying in bed you had everchanging scenery as the clouds fell and rose all around the hillside and across the lake. Quite magical even when it rained. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly especially Emma on reception. Who spoke wonderful English. We travelled to Italy by motorbike and she helped us greatly by recommening some lovely routes to ride. Nice walk into the main town along the Lake but if you can't be bothered you can catch the bus for a Euro just outside the hotel. Food was fine plenty of choice in the morning. We also ate in the hotel one evening and for 12 Euro for a set menu with a drink it was very acceptable. Garage and parking on site made life easy for us too to kept the bike dry. we did't use the pool as the weather was against us for the time we were there but looked pleasant enough. I would definately go back.

This modern hotel is starting to need a little TLC.

The food was OK but I've certainly had a lot better at other hotels elsewhere on Lake Garda

Excellent views but room noisy because of the main road running close outside
