Overview

This lovely family-run hotel has one of the most enviable positions on Lake Garda. Right on the waterfront at the foot of a castle and with mountains just behind, it’s less than five minutes’ walk to the heart of the lake’s most beautiful town, Malcesine, and about an hour from Verona International Airport.

 

On a short trip to this four-star Lake Garda hotel, you won’t want to stray far. Go for a stroll on Malcesine’s cobbled streets and take a dip in the clear water before relaxing beneath on a sun lounger on the hotel’s private beach. And don’t miss seeing it all from above by taking the popular cable-car ride from town, up 1,800 metres to Mount Baldo. On longer breaks, you can hop on one of the buses or ferries that stop here to explore all around the lake.

 

Hotel Castello Malcesine blends in well with its natural setting, with wood floors, suede and leather seating, and huge floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the lake and the 13th-century Scaligero Castle. But with exceptionally friendly service from the charming staff, you might be happy to spend the whole time looking out onto the lake from the sunny terrace.

Rooms

The main draw here is the magnificent scenery, so rooms are kept simple and modern to allow the beautiful surroundings to stand out through the floor-to-ceiling windows.

 

All rooms have excellent lake, mountain or castle views, and start at a good-sized 23 square metres (247 square feet) up to a spacious 55 square metres (592 square feet).

 

Most rooms have terraces or balconies that look right out over the lake.

 

Air-conditioning is standard, and some rooms have whirlpools.

Dining

The hotel’s restaurant Al Bacio serves a la carte lunch and dinner, and specialises in northern Italian cuisine. It uses local ingredients, including fish from the lake and vegetables from the mountains.

 

At breakfast, a large, delicious buffet is served with so much choice that you might not even need lunch.

Location

Hotel Castello Lake Front is located in the historic center of Malcesine, in a quiet location at the foot of the Scaligero castle, among the ancient battlements and overlooking the waters of Lake Garda with its private beach.

 

Malcesine is undoubtedly a favourite choice for a holiday on Lake Garda. Known as the Pearl of the Lake, it strikes for its beautiful landscape and for the architectural ensemble of its historic center, suspended between water and mountains.

 

As all roads lead to Rome, even here in Malcesine all roads lead to a single point: the marina. Sitting in one of the many cafes and watching the comings and goings of boats and people is a great way to savor the life of the lake

 

From the cable car that goes up to Monte Baldo, to the boat trips, the walks to the ancient hamlets, or simple relaxation on the beach, you don't need to stray too far to have a great holiday on Lake Garda.
