Hotel Antonella

  • Lake Garda, Italy, Malcesine

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Antonella is small and friendly hotel run by the Zamboni family, who'll go out of their way to make sure you have the best stay. Its in a lovely position on the main lake road so you can walk into the centre of Malcesine in about ten minutes. For a more scenic route take the lakeside path - it takes a few minutes longer but is so worth it just to be near the water.

The bed and breakfast board basis means you can try out a different restaurant each evening if you like. In town you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to places to eat, but you don't have to venture far for a very tasty wood-fired pizza. Pizzeria Da Gigi is just beneath the hotel and offers discounted prices for guests staying at the Antonella - we certainly couldn't resist!

The rooms are simple and spotlessly clean, but for something a bit special we'd recommend upgrading to the Standard Balcony Lake View Room. In the evenings you'll be in prime positions for watching the sun set across Lake Garda and the hills beyond. Another nice sunset spot is up on the hotel's roof terrace. 

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

Malcesine has a lot going for it and it’s perfect for anyone seeking an active holiday. It’s in the north of the lake so you’ve got lots of mountain trails to explore. The cable car goes straight from the town to the top of Monte Baldo, which is a starting point for lots of walk and cycles. The views from up here are incredible so we won’t blame you if you just want to sit and enjoy them instead. The town’s also big on watersports – you can try your hand at sailing or paddle boarding.

Malcesine is one of Lake Garda’s most recognisable resorts. Its beautiful 13th century castle makes it easy to spot from the water. If you go and take a closer look you’ll be rewarded with some pretty impressive lake views. They often have weddings here so you can imagine how romantic it is. The rest of Malcesine feels just as romantic thanks to the little cobbled streets and charming cafés. There’s a long promenade from the southern end of the town where you can walk for a few miles along the lake. There’s a busy ferry port too so you can head to some nearby towns like Limone or Riva very easily.
