Wellness Hotel Casa Barca
Ranked #1 of 71 Hotels in Malcesine
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 July 2014

As previous reviews have said, this is a clean and well run hotel. The on site facilities are great and the staff friendly and helpful especially the family that run it. There are a lot of nice little touches that add up to an excellent hotel.

Its rated a 4 star hotel presumably because there is no restaurant, but the owners are smart enough to realise with so many places to eat just a short walk away in Malcesine, there is no point having one on site and I doubt it would get enough trade to warrant the effort. That said, breakfast was excellent every day with plenty of choice and everything fresh and served in a clean spacious room so there was no queuing etc. Whilst not having a great range of snacks for the day time, there was enough choice and quality if you just wanted something to keep you until dinner. With the local Spar and the town itself in easy walking distance, food is a non-factor regardless.
The layout is excellent with every room having a lake view and the suite we had had great views. The best views are from the 2nd floor and the roof terrace (what a nice little sun trap that is!).
The pool is at the front of the hotel where you can catch the sun but there is also plenty of seated areas in the shade if you want to get out the sun for a break. The pool isn't heated, but in the middle of summer you are glad for a bit of respite from nigh on daily 30 degree temperatures!
The rooms are lovely and well appointed. The suite we had had a separate lounge/dressing area with walk in wardrobe, and the well appointed bathroom was tucked away out of sight but well lit. There was a laptop in the room for free use, as well as free WIFI. Only very minor gripe I have here is having to sign back into the WIFI every time we returned to the hotel, but its no big hassle to sign in anyway. The beds were fully adjustable which made a lovely addition. While we had our own little terrace, which was nice, because of the heat, you are more likely to head to the roof for serious sunbathing (there are covered areas for a break from the heat), or the pool if you want to be able to cool off quickly.
There are so many great things I could say about this place, but to keep it simple, this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in, for comfort, quality and value. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I stayed at the Casa Barca for seven nights for our wedding in Malcesine in June and we can not rate it and its staff highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble and it was not a problem for my sister to stay the night before our wedding and my mum and friend to join us in the morning to get ready. They even left a candle and a note of congratulations at night which was a lovely touch.
We stayed in a suite which was very spacious and had an amazing view of the lake. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The pool Is relaxing and never busy and the roof top terrace is spectacular.
We plan to return to Malcesine for our anniversary next year and will be staying in the Casa Barca again.
Thanks for making the week of our wedding so special.

My wife and I stayed at Casa Barca recently and thoroughly enjoyed. The hotel is modern, our room (a junior suite), was spacious with a large balcony and the staff were fantastic.

The hotel is set back a little bit from the lake and the main town (about a brisk 5 minute walk) and this is a good thing. You're able to stroll into town or down to the lakeside each day and return to a quiet, calm and peaceful hotel - perfect!

Breakfast is good with plenty of choice on offer. Though the hotel does not offer evening meals (it does have paninis and the like I believe) this again is a good thing as you can enjoy a drink at the bar (which is far cheaper than you'd expect - €7 for a glass of prosecco and a large beer!) before walking down into town to try out a different restaurant each evening.

The facilities at the hotel are very good and you're not really left wanting for much. Malcesine is a lovely place to stay and the view from the balcony each morning (each room is lake facing) is a lovely one.

If staying in Malcesine, I would thoroughly recommend Casa Barca.

Very modern, stunning boutique hotel. We stayed here during our Wedding and had one of the main suites. Staff could not of been more friendly and hotel is immaculate. The facilities are great (including a very modern gym), with a great roof terrace too overlooking lake Garda. Loved it and would happily go back.

My husband and I have just returned from an amazing holiday in stunning Malcesine. Our chosen hotel; The casa Barca turned out to be a perfect choice! The family is so very welcoming and friendly, the hotel is spotless!! I mean even if you search for dirt or dust you will not find any at all...even in corners!! Our room was gorgeous, modern and immaculate, the view over the lake is to die for. We spent lots of time on the balcony which was sunny in the afternoon and evening. The sleep quality is excellent, high quality beds and bedding. Breakfasts are delicious, a large selection of breads, fruit, cereal, yogurts etc., scrambled egg, sausage and bacon was also on offer although we avoided these to leave room for our daily Ice Cream in the town. Location is fine, 5 mins down the hill to the main centre, however, Italian drivers are pretty fast and appear to ignore pedestrian crossings so do take care! My tips for the hotel are to ask for a high Lake View room. Our highlights were; Hotel Casa Barca, Cable Car trip to Monte Baldo. Best restaurants in our view, were, Re Lear, Corsaro and Al Gondoliere.
Top tip if getting cable car to Monte Baldo,;- buy dual Castle/Monte Baldo ticket at the castle (no queue) and bypass the huge queue (we waited and hour) at the cable car.

Room Tip: Choose a 2nd floor Lake View Room

Just back from a week staying in this fantastic hotel.

This family run hotel is just perfect. Lovely rooms, great breakfast, fantastic pool and patio area. The family and staff were so helpful and friendly.

The hotel is a short walk away from the centre of malcesine with lots of great bars and restaurants.
Will definitely be returning soon.
