We knew before we went that the location of the Augusta would be good, and it certainly was. With a standard room overlooking the cable car and mountains, it wasn't as noisy as some reviewers have said (just pull down the roller shutter at night time, that keeps out any road noise).
The hotel is only minutes into the cobbled streets of Malcesine, and has a really nice quiet pool area for late afternoon occasions that we wanted to just sit down and cool off for a while.
We were pleasantly surprised at how modern and new looking the hotel was and obviously they have recently spent a lot of money on its tasteful refurbishment.
We were welcomed by Marina and she was very helpful, even advising that at 11 o'clock in the morning our room was ready.
We had already had a week in Garda visiting the places on the southern part of the lake, and Malcesine was great for getting to the top half and places such as Limone and Riva, and of course the Dolomites. The town itself was so picturesque with some very good restaurants.
Mount Balde is just across the road but get there early for the cable car before the long queues.The views up there are tremendous and we walked for hours in the sunshine.
Air con in the hotel is an extra charge but we didn't need it when we were there. As another reviewer has said the hot water wasn't always as hot as it could be but other than that this hotel is great value and we will certainly go back there if we return to Malcesine
