If you are reading this review then you are probably like me, someone who pours over the reviews making sure that you book the best hotel for your holiday, staying at Hotel Benacus we did just that.
Quite simply the hotel is great, Roberto and his team are fantastic and really made our stay.
As anxious Brits do I emailed Roberto before we left the UK to check the booking etc.. and he kindly offered to book a taxi for us, which was great and a darn site cheaper than airport taxi's. The transfer from Verona Airport was about an hour and pain-free.
We received a fantastic welcome, the bar / food is great. The room was perfect, the roller blind especially as it blocked out all the light for those cheeky holiday lay-ins. Air con great. Bathroom great. The breakfast was brilliant and until 10am which was good to.
The walk into Malcesine is really pleasant, a walk along the lake surrounded by mountains is something else (upon occasion an early morning jog is even better).
Malcesine as a place in my view is nicer than Limeone (spell check) and Riva Del Garda (too windy) as it has many little cobbled streets with shops, bars and restaurants you can get lost in. Trips to the before mentioned locations is easy from Hotel Benacus via ferry, which is good fun.
Roberto and his team could not have made our stay any better, they offered sound advice on which Bars/Restaurants to visit and what attractions to see.
Furthermore as the two of us were planning to leave the hotel after a week we asked Robert if we could book us a taxi down to the bottom of the Lake, Peschiera Del Garda (70 Euros) to get a train to Venice (110 Euros). Roberto said "don't do that" and he arranged seats for us on the local bus that stopped right outside at 7.20am and took us directly to venice for 20 Euro each - Roberto thank you again - brilliant!
Honestly if you are looking for somewhere to stay that is run by a great team, is well equipped, in a great location, in a fab Lake town then look no further...!!
