The Hotel Rosa is smashing, perfect location, amazing setting, lovely pool area, a perfect small, hotel. Emma on Reception is great, very efficient and helpful and Chiara in the restaurant is a delight. HOWEVER there are a few things you need to know before you book a holiday there: 1) credit cards not accepted for amounts of less than 200 euros - I enjoy my wine but even I could not manage to notch up that much, fortunately we had some £s which we changed. 2) if you want your meal out on the terrace, overlooking the lake it will cost you another 7 euros each for each meal, that makes nearly 100 euros a week for a couple - quite a big extra 'spend'. Fortunately for us the weather was cool so we ate dinner in the restaurant. 3) BE CAREFUL if you are out late! we came back at 22.45 from a concert in town to find the Hotel in darkness No problems, we thought as of course we had our keys. However, the metal chest-high security gate was secured, we did not have a key for that!!! in the end we had to climb over and I am 66 years old with arthritis! not funny. We thought it was just us, but later in the week we saw a whole group of guests climbing over the gate. Oh! and the Manager did not deign to acknowledge me all week, despite seeing me several times a day he totally ignored me. No idea why, I am a nice friendly person. Finally, we LOVED Malcesine but we have to say it was not the Italian experience we had hoped for, I even had to speak German in the market to buy what I wanted, I felt I was on holiday on the Rhine!!
