Hotel Garni Casa Popi
Ranked #35 of 71 Hotels in Malcesine
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 July 2012

Just returned from three nights at Casa Popi. What a lovely family owned hotel, superbly run by two sisters, who work so hard to enure your stay is a memorable one. Bedrooms are fairly small but perfectly adequate. Very comfortable bed, an efficient ceiling fan & free room safe. Spotlessly clean & quality furnishings & fittings. Small balcony with fabulous rooms overlooking the lake. Although noisier on the front with fairly busy road, the views were worth it. This was not a problem as great shutters for eliminating noise & sun!! It was incredibly hot whilst we were there, so the beautiful pool came into its own. Plenty of sun beds & drinks available from reception area. Breakfast was superb, with gorgeous home made bread. At €59 per room, per night, what fantastic value. Pool towels available for hire at €2 per stay. Certainly hope to return here.

Stayed: June 2012, travelled as a couple

Stayed for 3 nights in room with balcony overlooking lake for 59€ a night and this included lovely breakfast so excellent value & great location. Run by two lovely sisters who do everything & work so hard. Everywhere so clean & well maintained. Pool and garden are superb with plenty of beds & umbrellas. Just to clarify, towels in room are included - extra towels for sunbeds are 2€ for however many days you want to keep them. Excellent WiFi 3€ for whole of stay so again great value. No aircon but powerful ceiling fan in room. Free safe in room. Poolside drinks available from reception. Two ways to walk into centre - direct 5 mins or scenic lakeside 10/15 mins. Got owner Rosa to organise private transfer for 4 to Verona Airport for 100€ - super service from Vito & journey time 70 mins. Alternative was shared transfer for 16.40€ each but would take a lot longer. All in all, just what we wanted & we loved it. Would definitely go back.

Just returned from a wonderful holiday . We stayed at Hotel Casa Popi, a perfect choice for a low budget hotel with a genuine Italian feel. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms basic but comfortable and the location perfect for a short walk into town. Our room was at the front of the hotel, overlooking the lake but by the side of the busy road. However we did not find this spoilt our enjoyment in any way. Casa Popi serve a lovely fresh breakfast and I cannot praise them highly enough for their service and help in helping us organise our transfers. A lovely holiday.

We stayed here mid June with two other couples. We all had garden/pool view rooms as we had heard that the lake view rooms were noisy as it is on a busy road. Good move! The rooms are basic but very clean and have everything you need. We had a hairdrier in our room but our friends didn't. We think the owners will lend you one if needs be though. Choice at breakfast consists of a selection of freshly baked breads every day, tinned fruits, cakes, cereals, cold meats and hard boiled eggs. You won't go hungry. The hotel is only a five minute walk from Malcesine town but there are no pavements on the busy road so part of the walk in is a bit dicey as the Italian drivers aren't the best drivers in the world. We paid 434 euros for the room for our weeks stay. Fantastic value. The town is lovely and very pretty. There are plenty of good inexpensive restaurants around with fabulous lake views. Don't miss a visit to the castle. You get views to die for from the top. Make sure you aren't at the top on the hour or half hour or you will be deafened by the bell! We visited Limone, Riva and lastly Bardolino which was our favourite. All in all we had a brilliant holiday. We would recommend Casa Popi to anyone unless of course you are looking for five star luxury but at these prices you obviously won't be getting that.

Room Tip: Have a garden room on the right side of the hotel..room one was good.

We stayed at Casa Popi in May/June 2012 to start the celebrations of our 1st wedding anniversary! We had a lake view, the room was spacious and very clean! Breakfast was simple but nice enough, the garden and pool area is lovely and relaxing! Really good location! Only 5 minutes to walk to Malcesine which is perfect! We managed to park our car each day outside the hotel too! Downside which was small but you have to pay 3.00EUR to change your towels never had this before??!

Thank you Casa Popi a trip to remember!

Room Tip: Room 10 was great overlooking the lake :)

July 2011 and this was our second stay at Casa Popi. My wife, myself, my daughter and her relatively new husband (from her wedding the previous year here). It is a great hotel - so friendly. We have fallen in love with Lake Garda and in particular Malcesine. My wife and I have already booked a week next year and look forward to returning to Casa Popi and familia Lombardi

Room Tip: Go for upper floor facing the lake - breathtaking views

Once we found out that our friends were getting married in Malcesine during August, the hunt was on for a hotel that could offer us a good location, pool, lake view, very clean and friendly at a good price due to us having other holidays planned etc. Trip advisor did all the work for us as the majority of the reviews all said the same thing, so our instinct was to go with what other people had experienced. I am so glad we did as this lovely, well kept family run hotel is at the heart of Malcesine and offered us everything we wanted and more... I was amazed how clean it was, absolutely spotless and puts other hotel standards to shame.

We didn't have one complaint about this hotel.. breakfast was well presented every morning with home made fresh breads very traditional. The pool was clean and you could always get a sun bed in the afternoon after being out and about. The location was just great, a short stroll and you were at the shops, bars and restaurants and they had a Spa shop, so we would often go and buy drinks for the room and hot fresh chicken for lunch etc.

We found Malcesine good value for money as after being in Spain only a few weeks earlier we were able to compare food & drinks prices and it was much cheaper when eating out.

We hired a car that we picked up at the airport, we didn't have a sat nav to find this place just hand written directions off google maps etc and it was really easy and straight forward. I would most definitely go back to Casa Popi again and we are hoping to go back to the lakes in June 2012. I hope you have found this review useful, as I certainly found them useful when finding this little gem.

Thanks
