Hotel Cristallo

  • Lake Garda, Italy, Malcesine

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Cristallo is a charming hotel that has a very friendly and welcoming feel, thanks to the Moretti family who own and run it. It’s located about 15 minutes outside the centre of Malcesine and around ten minutes from the lakefront. The benefit of this location is that you get lovely lake views – especially from the terrace where you’ll find a few loungers. There’s more loungers in the garden by the pool.

The décor here is very traditional. Expect bright colours in the rooms and comfy furnishings throughout. The restaurant feels just as homely and serves local Italian food for dinner. After you’ve eaten, head to the bar for a night cap.

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

Malcesine

Malcesine’s pedestrianised cobbled streets lead up from the lakeside, past shops, cafés and shady squares to the 13th Century castle which towers above the lake on a sheer rock face. The Saturday market is not to be missed and the excellent ferry service makes Riva and Limone easily accessible too. The long promenade leads out from the resort’s southern end past shingle beaches to lovely Val di Sogno, an idyllic spot for lake bathing and watersports. Take the cable-car to the top of Monte Baldo behind Malcesine. Here you will enjoy superb views, an abundance of walks and beautiful nature. With so much variety and character, your holiday in Malcesine is an ideal choice.
