This hotel is a gem! I dare anyone to find this quality in Malcesine during summer time at these prices.We sure are glad not to have paid attention to some of the not so good reviewers who obviously do not read their contracts when the buy.
The hotel staff are very efficient, methodical and always willing to answer questions give directions and help in any way possible.
The room we had (we paid the premium for lake view!) was absolutely spotless clean every day, with a breathtaking view of Lake Garda. The hotel location is about 500 meters from the very centre of the town of Malcesine and similarly very close to the funicular station for a ride to the top of Monte Baldo which should not be missed. Make sure to go on a clear day. The hotel entrance is about 50 steps up a slowly rising walkway from the main road and (unless you are dead and do not know it) an easy walk even for me at 67 and xxx pounds!
The hotel swimming pool and all of the public areas are absolutely spotless. Additionally the hotel also offers a great dry sauna, a Turkish steam sauna, a hot pool and a tanning bed, all free for the use of the clients! Also free is a guided hiking tour of the several trails three days a week for those who are interested in some good work out. We hiked down from the intermediate funicular station (about 1.5 hours) which is very steep and should not be done in high heels or flip flops as we saw some !@iots do and get hurt. The walkways and trails are well marked giving direction and around every corner a view to die for. By the way, do not forget to have a light weight jacket for the chance that the top of Monte Baldo is in a bad mood and starts pouring rain just like that. If it does go hide in the restaurant and have another coffee or a piece of that wonderful apple cake they serve.
The hotel rooms are adequate in size with an office desk, "spot on" wireless internet also free and air conditioning that works and is quiet. Parking is covered and protected from the hot sun and it is also free of charge. In Italy parking is at a premium so this was great.
We asked if the hotel had a restaurant and they said no, and offered advice on several restaurants nearby. For a quick meal the hotel serves some excellent sandwiches, large salads and small pasta meals for lunch with cold -cold beer with prices that are lower than any of the restaurants near by.
We will certainly be back. You get what you pay for and in this case we received much more that we expected. Grazie, molto grazie. Thanks a Canadian bunch.
