Gardesana Active Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 August 2014

We loved our stay at Active Apartments. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were without a car, but wanted to visit several towns in the area, and they helped us book everything we needed to get around. The apartment itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped. But the biggest plus was the location. Active Apartments is on the edge of the town center, an easy walk to all the charming shops and restaurants, the castle, the port, and the grocery store. It is also convenient to the cable car to the top of Monte Baldo, an excursion that should definitely not be missed. Our apartment on the third floor had beautiful views of both the lake and the mountains. In short, this was a perfect place to stay. We are already planning our net visit.

We have stayed at the active apartments on a number of occasions now and we absolutely love it. Carolina is a fantastic host and always makes us feel welcome. The Nordic Walking apartment is clean and well equipped with a large terrace to the front. The apartment is just a short walk to the lake front and the centre of Malcesine. It is close to the supermarket and the bus station too, so very handy in terms of location. Both of the rooms have air conditioning and the site is secure. We have stayed here on a number of occasions now and it feels like a home from home! We look forward to returning soon!

We stayed for the first time at Gardesana Active Apartments in June 2014. Carolina and Peter (the brother and sister who run it) are lovely and very welcoming and very knowledgeable of the local area and were very happy to advise when asked - and their English was fantastic!! The room was beautiful and clean and the food in the bar downstairs was delicious!! If you stay here you must have breakfast in the bar at least once!! I think we ended up eating there every morning!! We would definitely recommend staying here and we will definitely be going back! A massive thank you to Carolina and Peter for making our holiday memorable and stress free - see you soon!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Bike apartment which has the largest balcony and is at the back of the hotel with a...

Absolutely can not fault this place or the people who run it , the rooms were so modern and clean.
We were staying in the paraglide suit at the top and are view was spot on .
The location was perfect , smack bang in the centre of everything ( no taxis or busses needed ).
And like I said the people who own and run this place were the perfect hosts , they couldn't do enough for us I would give this place 10stars if I could .

Me and my family stayed here for my wedding on 15th May 2014 this was found by my maid of honour and she did not disappoint! we had the top front room which overlooked the castle, it was beautiful and perfect for photos. It's brilliant that they have bikes you can use and the coffee shop is very good, I had a pastry and coffee every morning which luckily didn't have an impact on my waistline til after the wedding. It's less than a 5 min walk to the town/castle and mount baldo is definatly recommended.
To sum it up its modern,very clean,has friendly and helpful staff and is in a perfect location, what more could you want. I was a bit reluctant to write a good review only because when we do visit hopefully for our 1 year anniversary we don't want it to be fully booked :)

Perfect place to stay. This place was clean, modern, perfect location and friendly staff. I did a lot of research of places to stay while in lake garda, as we needed to stay in this location called Malcesine for a family wedding. The apartments where briliant! very clean and modern and the rooms to select from were amazing and so much room. The staff were welcoming and helpful and even before we arrived when i emailed any questions she was amazing and would reply within a day. It is perfect for walking in to the town as it is literally across the road. Lots of amazing food places, easy parking in the car park which is 5 mins away as hiring a car is a must so you can drive around the place. If you are in doubt then i hope this blog will confirm that this is not a mistake and you will be very happy here.

Room Tip: because it is located on the high street where cars pass, if you prefer very quiet then ask for a be...

We recntly stayed at the apartments with our friends and family as we were getting married at the Castle which can be viewd directly from the balconies of the apartments. Carolina and Pietro were so helpul and accomodating making sure everything ran smoothly. I can honestly say I never stayed in cleaner, smarter more stylish apartments, and in such a fantastic location! We couldn't have been happier with our choice of accomodation for the bridal party and our friends.
The bar downstairs also serves delicious breakfasts! We had a lovely english breakfast the morning after the wedding to nurse our hangovers!
We would love to return to the apartments for our anniversary next year and try out all the fit walking, biking and activities we didn't have time to do this trip. I would highly recommend these to anyone, especially young families as there is so much to here.
Beautifully looked after, could have asked for more!
