“Visit from Scotland ”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Stayed for a week in this lovely family run hotel. The room was very comfortable with a lovely large comfortable bed which looked out over the balcony for breath taking views of the lake. We were well looked after by Maria and her family who really made our stay a pleasure. We can't
wait for next year to visit again!

Stayed for 10 Nights and had an absolutely wonderful Holiday. The views from the balcony rooms were breathtaking (2nd Floor), The food in the Hotel was excellent and well priced. We ate out most of the time as we like to see everywhere but when we stayed in, the food was excellent and genuine Italian.

Staff and particularly Maria could not have been more helpful. If you want to know anything Maria either knows it or finds it for you, she will arrange all your trips with no hassle. I have never found better service than here.

The buses for all trips stop outside and so does the local Tourist Bus (Hourly). The local buses to go to other Towns is 200 yards down a beautiful wlak by the Lake.

Room Tip: Balcony Room 2nd Floor. Lake View.

Stopped for 7 nights .. Great hotel and family run hotel which the family are great people and there staff make you very welcome .. Food in the hotel is great ..worth getting a lake view because if you get a back room you will be looking at rocks .. Bus stop out side hotel door takes you straight into centre of malcesine for €1.20 . Or a nice 40 mins walk on the lake front .. Would go back to this hotel .. Thanks to Maria and her family for the nice service ... Peter & Michaela ... Uk

We stayed for a night and booked on-line a standard room for 72 eur. After arrival we asked for another room with a view to the lake (I reccomend to as the rocks are only few meters away from the window). The view was very nice and the price was 80 eur.
The hotel is situated just few meters from the main street and jou can hear the traffic. Parking is free of charge.
Breakfast was OK and the staff helpful.

Room Tip: Take a room with a view to lake.

Visited this hotel in March 2014, walked to the hotel after getting off the bus in Malcesine and it took 40 minutes. The hotel is on a stretch of road were there are nothing else apart from the hotel. We walked into the village which was pleasant but in the evening took a taxi which cost 9 euros.

We stayed in suite 1 which was beautiful large living room and bedroom, bathroom with a spa bath and a walk in shower. The room was really clean and decoration was modern.

Family run hotel and at the time of our visit the only a few guests and the family were running the hotel, they were extremely attentive.

Even though I enjoyed our stay my only negative is the location, the town is a good walk which is fine during the day but at not really good at night following a meal in the village.

Room Tip: Suite1 lovely view of lake and a large balcony great spa bath

We have been staying at the Piccolo Hotel for years and come back time and time again as they are so friendly and the hotel is comfortable and welcoming. If you want great views and a good location for the sailing centre this is the best!!

Room Tip: Make sure you have a lake view, the higher up you are the quieter it is.

The Piccolo Hotel is all I had hoped for. It is clean, well-furnished and modern inside, with great views of the lake, a good breakfast, plenty of parking spaces, and the staff are friendly and efficient. Absolutely no complaints (except that the shower door was a bit leaky, which is more of a problem for the hotel rather than for me!) and I would certainly return. We paid the little extra for a superior lake view room with 24-hour air conditioning, and I cannot recommend this highly enough. The view is amazing and it is so nice to sit out on the balcony at night listening to the lake and looking over to Limone. On this side of the hotel the balcony doors block out the majority of the traffic noise from the lake road whilst mysteriously still allowing in the sound of the lake lapping gently. Lovely! The hotel also has sun-loungers on the edge of the lake which may be used by guests.

Please note that the swimming pool is not heated, and in mid-September I could not bring myself to put more than a little toe into that cold water. One for the height of summer only I think :o)

We knew in advance about the 40-45 minute walk into Malcesine, so we were prepared, and we both found it very pleasant to walk along the flat, well-lit cycle path twice a day, on the edge of the lake. The path passes the landing area for the paragliders and we spent ages happily watching them. From the hotel you do have to cross the road, which is busy and fast, to get to the lake and the path, and I think that some people, particularly elderly people or those with young families, might prefer to be closer to the town. There is the option of the tourist bus, and we did use it a few times, but I suspect that it would become hopelessly packed in high season.

All in all, though, a great hotel and location and I hope to return in the future.
