“The Perfect 2* Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

It is very difficult to find something not already said about this hotel it is quite the most perfect small hotel and I would not want to mark it down because of perceived deficiencies. It is a small hotel with facilities to match, however first impressions are of a newly rejuvenated hotel, superb location ,the outdoor facilities regardless of whether or not you wanted sun tan or just to sit in the shade, is top notch. Breakfast is very good simple but everything was very fresh. I highly recommend this budget hotel, on every level.

Room Tip: My room was 18 on the side next to the restaurant with limited lake view but the excellent double gl...

This being our first visit to Italy, let alone Lake Garda, we were pleasantly surprised by the standard of this hotel, especially as it is only rated 2 star. It is true what they say, first impressions count, and I can definately say I would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to anyone. The reception staff were first class and couldn't have been more helpful, the room, although fairly basic was extremely clean. Breakfast was continental, but very satisfactory. The real selling point of this hotel is its location, right by the lakeside, and although our room did not overlook the lake, we had a magnificent view of the mountains. Restaurants and shops are within 20 yards of the hotel, these also are extremely good for eating and shopping. Would we go back to this hotel again - WITHOUT A DOUBT
We holidayed the first week in June, and although not scorching hot it was pleasantly warm

Room Tip: All rooms have good views, but the ones at the front of the hotel, although having great views of th...

The hotel is in a fantastic lakeside location, the terrace leading directly onto the lake. Despite being situated only a few hundred metres from the centre of town, it is very peaceful and quiet, even on an evening when there is live music playing. The owners were lovely, very friendly and couldnt be more helpful. The room was large and very comfortable, there was no air conditioning, however we were able to hire a fan for a euro per night. Breakfast was a basic continental breakfast, all fresh and tasty, and while the hotel doesn't offer evening meals, snacks are available throughout the day.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back and side offer views of the lake, rooms at the front offer views of the mountain...

This two star hotel is right on the lake near the port. The location could not be better. It has a terrace overlooking the lake from which you can swim. But do buy protective swimming shoes as the lake is rocky and not good with bare feet.The bar offers drinks and coffee for when on the terrace and the prices are very good.
The hotel is very clean. The breakfasts are basic but good enough. Brown and white bread rolls with ham,cheese, salami. Jams and honey. Fruit juice and coffee.
You can take your coffee out onto the terrace but not your breakfast.
If you want a room with balcony and lake view then be aware that package holiday companies do not book these rooms. Once you have booked contact the hotel and request a lake view and offer to pay the extra in cash. Its worth it.
The bedrooms are basic but clean with ensuite bathrooms usually only a shower.
The owners dont speak a lot of English but enough to get by. They are very nice and helpful.
We spent a week here and really cant complain. However wish I had contacted them to get the lake view with balcony.

Room Tip: If booking through a package company like Thomsons be aware you are unlikely to get a lake view with...

After reading in great depth the reviews for this hotel, they are all spot on about the lakeside location being superb. If it hadn't been for this I think I would have been rather disappointed. Why?.....
Well, why have a lovely lake view establishment and then serve your breakfast inside a cramped and dark back room, with all the Brits clumped together! All other hotels ate on the outside terraces.
Also Thompson/Crystal advertise a jacuzzi/whirlpool on the terrace, this is super! However the owners were dead set against switching it on, so it remained closed whilst we were there.
The shower was dreadful, very cold and having no jacuzzi also made this even worse.
Breakfast was pitiful.

However, the rooms were fine, nice enough reception staff and fine for a few days.

Room Tip: Room 14 was dreadful, we took room 5, nice little lake view and a double without balcony.

Fantastic little B&B right on the lakeside and two minutes from the centre.. Room immaculate. Staff extremely frendly. Cannot recommend highly enough, but Thomson won't book you a lake view room so contact Elizabet or Frederico directly..

Once again an enjoyable holiday in a fabulous location right by the lakeside. The ground floor area has been upgraded since our last stay and enhances the impression we already had of an excellent value for money 2 star rated hotel. The staff in the hotel were as always very attentive to all our needs. The room 21 balcony faced the main street and was perfect for watching the world go by, the room was all that was required with an adequate bathroom, safe facilities,comfortable double bed and plenty of space. Even although it faces the roadway there is little noise to speak of after midnight. Little time is spent in the room because Malcescine and the surrounding area offers so much to do so if your looking for a reasonably priced comfortable stay this hotel would suit.

Room Tip: rooms on the street side although not overlooking the lake are just as interesting for people watchi...
