My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Alpino for a week in early October on the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there a couple of months earlier. The hotel lived up to our expectations and I can recommend it to anyone who is looking for a modestly priced, friendly, family run hotel. It is centrally sited in the attractive small town of Malcesine and although it has two stars in our opinion it is at the top end of that rating. It is only minutes away from the little harbour, where ferries to other places on Lake Garda depart and within easy walking distance from the bus station. We didn’t have a car but presumably there is parking in the piazza opposite the hotel. Our room on the second floor had a tiny balcony which overlooked a quiet narrow side street with a sidewards view of the harbour. It was of an adequate size and clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space and a flat screen TV with BBC World available. The en suite bathroom had a shower, bidet, toiletries and a hair dryer.
We were on a B+B basis and the buffet breakfast included a good choice of juices, cereal, yogurt, croissants, pastries, toast, boiled eggs, cold meats and cheeses. We particularly enjoyed the bowl of fresh mixed fruit salad. We’ve stayed at more expensive hotels where only tinned fruit salad is provided. We had a couple of dinners at the adjoining hotel restaurant which had a good a la carte menu and a 10% discount for hotel guests. If you’re lucky, as we were, the proprietor may offer you a complementary liqueur of your choice! Otherwise there are plenty of nearby restaurants to choose from.
The hotel owners, Patrizia and her husband, were always on hand to answer our queries and to assist in any way. They will also arrange very reasonably priced transfers to and from Verona Airport if required. To sum up the Hotel Alpino is excellent value for money. You won’t get 4 star luxury but you will get a perfectly adequate and pleasant small hotel.
