Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Nestled in the heart of Malcesine, just 350 yards from the stunning castle and the lake itself, this quaint and comfortable property is renowned for its excellent value for money and enviable position. Here, you'll be welcomed with open arms into a family run establishment that prides itself on the care of its guests. There are 27 rooms at the Hotel Alpino all with good amenities and simple furnishings to provide all you'll need for a stay on the lake. A rich and varied buffet breakfast is served each morning in the dining room which overlooks the mountains and offers up pastries, breads, cold cuts, cheese and hot options along with delicious freshly brewed coffees, teas and juices. Dinner can be booked and paid for locally at the delightful pizzeria on the ground floor and Inghams guests will receive 10% discount whenever they dine here. The pizzas are baked onsite in the traditional stone oven and there's nothing quite like tucking into a fresh pizza of regional toppings whilst sipping an Aperol and truly living La Dolce Vita. Getting out and about from the Hotel Alpino could not be easier with the ferry port just a moments walk away. Take the ferry to the colourful harbour of Riva or across to the beautiful resort of Limone. Make sure you explore the gems of Malcesine too: hike up and take the cable car to the summit of Monte Baldo, walk the cobbled lanes of the town and head to the castle where you can enjoy unrivaled and spectacular views of Lake Garda.

Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins by coach from Verona airport.
