The hotel is lovely in every way. We had room 5 and had a massive roof top balcony. The receptionist was lovely and helpful and Marco was too. The hotel has a great location too.Turn left out of the hotel and you are in the centre. Turn right and its a lovely lake side walk. The hotel on the lake front that you come to after about 5/10 mins is nice to sit out on (I think its the Excelsior) and they have a musician on. Not much going on in Malcesine on a night really, could do with a few more bands on.

We stayed at hotel vega for a wedding in a malcesine and we were very impressed from the minute we stepped through the door. Marco greets you every time you see him and takes a lot of attention to detail. We stayed in a mountain view room on the top floor - we were very impressed and were glad we didnt upgrade to lake view as we had a large balcony and there was lots to look at. The food is fabulous - always varied and we never ate the same meal twice and Breakfast choices were very good. The dining room is spotless and has the most amazing views of the lake which took some beating (we even stayed for our dinner on my birthday as i didnt want to go anywhere else!). It is right in malcesine - seconds walk to the main square, 10 min walk to cable car and also to the castle. Perfect in every way and we will always go back to this hotel if we visit again!

Room Tip: Rooms facing mount baldo are just as good as the lake view rooms

This hotel is ideally situated right on the lakes edge and the views from the dinning room are magnificent . The proprietor Marco does his best to ensure your holiday will be full of happy memories. His attention to detail and personal service makes you feel special and he always has time to talk and give you advice on the local attractions . The hotel is very clean and the meals are excellent and varied .Its location could not be better, just a few minutes walk and you are in the centre of Malcesine with its ferry terminal many bars and shops. Its just a 10 minute walk to the castle and a 15 minute walk to the cable car, both worth a visit. There is a nice little restaurant at the top of Monte Baldo when you leave the cable car it's no more than a five minute walk from the exit up a slight incline to the flat top of the mountain. The Hotel is a great base to visit other villages around the lake such as Garda, Simione, Limone, Riva and many more as we used the ferry and local transport to get around which was very easy. Don't worry if you do not have a Lake view room as the view from our room at the front of hotel was absolutely fabulous with views of Monte Baldo when you wake in the morning, really refreshing.

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor which faced the mountains Monte Baldo with a view of the cable car...

This was our first visit to vega and we couldn't of stayed anywhere better, the location was excellent, on the lake, mountains all around, shops, bars and harbour only minute walk. The hotel is very clean and the staff are friendly and work very hard, nothing is too much trouble. The food is first class, it was so nice not to be served chips with every meal (we didn't have them once), plenty of choice at breakfast, fruit, eggs, toast, cake, cereals, hams, cheese, plenty of choice. At dinner always fresh salad, starter, main meal and a sweet. When we went to Venice for a trip, we were given a packed lunch because we wouldn't be back in time for dinner. We would defiantly stay at this hotel again and highly recommend it and a great big thank you to Marco and his team for making our stay so enjoyable

Room Tip: Some rooms have lake views, we had a front facing room no18 which looked over the mountains, very li...

This is an excellent hotel with a great lakeside location and only a few minutes walk to the centre
of Malcesine.The front/side rooms have lovely views of the lake and the rear rooms,which are just as good,have nice views of the mountains.The hotel is decorated to a very high standard with
super fixtures/fittings.
The food is very good and the hotel is very well run by Marco and his team who are very friendly
and attentive.

Wow what a fantastic hotel. I can only echo all the previous comments.

We were met on arrival by Marco who looked after us like family, even driving to Riva to buy up the last of the Gluten free bread and showing us personally to our room.

The hotel is located on the shores of the lake, just a five minute walk from the ferry and centre of Malcesine which is the most charming of towns and about 15 minutes from the cable car up to Monte Baldo.

We booked on-line and took the half board option, we were not disappointed. The food was of high quality and included and great salad bar. The wine list was great too although we just took the recommendation from the Marco and the waiters. The breakfast included freshly cooked eggs with all you could want at the buffet bar, once breakfast was complete Marco would run through the choices for the evening meal which ended up being a difficult decision.

Our booked room was down a flight of stairs, there was a lift, it what appears to have been the basement but once in opened up onto the decking overlooking the lake. The room was great, very bright with a cracking bathroom and a great view to wake up to.

I can’t recommend a look at this hotel if you are thinking of visiting Malcesine, you will not be disappointed. They can also arrange, at a cost, transport to and from Verona airport if required.

This was our first visit to the Vega where my wife and I spent 7 wonderful days. This small hotel is in a fantastic position on the lakeside with spectacular views over Lake Garda yet less than two minutes walk into the centre of picturesque Malcesine. We had a room with balcony overlooking the lake, heaven!
Marco and his staff are wonderful hosts and the service is as good if not better than any hotel we have stayed in anywhere in the world, including many 5 star hotels. Top marks to the chef for some extremely tasty food beautifully presented.
This is a 'Little Gem' of a find and we will return.
