“Best of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

My family and I stayed in Casa Barca from 14th - 21st April 2012. It is simply the best hotel we have stayed in outside of those with 2 Michelin stars. The staff and the owners could not have been more friendly or helpful. We are returning in September when my daughter will be getting married in the Castle in Malcesine and we are booked back into Casa Barca and looking forward to renewing our acquaintance with this lovely hotel and its fantastics breakfasr buffet

We stayed here as we were getting married in Malcesine, like many other reviewers, and booked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and the hotel's website. It was immaculate, spacious, and very modern, but family run and comfortable. The spa was well looked after and a great way to relax and unwind, and the breakfast was varied and tasty. The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from the town centre and having seen several other hotels stayed in by family members and friends, I can safely say that the Casa Barca is by far the jewel in Malcesine's crown!

We just had a wonderful stay at Casa Barca. Everyone was so helpful and kind. The hotel is perfectly situated to walk to town and the cable car to the mountain. It is also well situated for exploring the area. I can't say enough about how fantastic everyone at the hotel was. We do not speak Italian and my father wanted to see an exhibition in a nearby town. Several folks worked tirelessly through the Easter holiday to contact everyone and find the information we needed. Throughout the weekend, every request was fulfilled with a smile. The hotel itself is spotless and very comfortable. My parents, my husband and I, and our two teenaged boys all felt it was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. Lovely town to explore, just wish we had more time.

Room Tip: We had rooms 6,7 and 8. They all had a lovely view of the lake and comfortable lounge chairs.

Claudio and his staff made this one of my favorite stays on our European vacation! We booked a "package deal" which included some extras like a massage, boat ride and gondola trip up the mountains. Beware: these are not pre-ticketed events but reimbursed upon checkout. No problem though as Claudio makes it easy! This is a luxury-type hotel that is very modern and clean with a super breakfast and is centrally located for a walk down to town. This was our first trip to Malcesine and Claudio showed us the ropes--what to see, what to do, how to do it. His restaurant recommendations were spot-on and we had a fun, relaxing time. Great views of the Lake and service that is top-notch.

We stayed here when me and my now wife got married in Malcesine, there was a problem booking with the hotel but it all got sorted out in the end, as you have to book direct with the hotel.

This is a family run hotel, but very modern and not a typical Italian hotel, the owner just loved his gadgets! but that's not a bad thing. The location is fantastic for Malcesine, great views, and only 5 mins walk into the centre, plus they give you free umbrellas left at the main door for when its raining as the weather at Lake Garda can change very quickly.

The breakfast is superb and you are spoilt for choice, everything was lovely and fresh, the snacks were of a good quality too, drinks a little pricey but it was the same for all of Malcesine, but wine is sold at a good price.

The rooms were large, very clean, the cleaners came everyday, with a very good size TV with some english channels, the beds were very comfy. And you will love the showers with all the colours from the shower heads.

The "spa" facilitates were of a very high standard and a good place to escape when the weather is not at its best.

A good tip here is if needing a airport transfer book direct with the hotel as its quick and cheap, all part of the good service.

Overall this is the best hotel in Malcesine by far! and I checked out lots and saw my guests hotels which were good but not close to casa barca. One day we will return to this hotel and it is worth the money to stay here, we loved it and it will always be a part of our special wedding.

We had a fabulous holiday here. Claudio and the rest of the staff could not do enough for us. The room was excellent, with a gorgeous view of the lake, especially good when there was a firework display one night. The hotel is only a short walk from the centre of the town. The breakfast was really good, the only criticism being the orange juice, which was not fresh juice. The facilities were excellent, with a lovely pool, gym and spa services on offer and there is free wifi in the rooms. We would definitely go there again.

In September I stayed at Hotel Casa Barca in Malcesine and was surprised to find that I liked it more than I had expected. To be honest I had wanted to stay at the Hotel Castello since I had stayed in Hotel Castello several times in the past, but they were fully booked during the time I wanted to be in Malcesine. I did some research and discoverd Hotel Casa Barca so I thought I would give it a try. I was a little dissapointed in not being able to stay in Hotel Castello, so I had a preconcieved notion that I would not like Hotel Casa Barca because it was not my first choice, but after having stayed there I can now join the chorus of other people who give it positive reviews. First the negatives: the hotel is not on the water and if you like to swim in Lake Garda you won't have direct access to the lake, second, the place is not in the center of things so you have to take a short walk to get to the middle of town, but the excercise is good for you. Now the positives: The hotel is very very neat and clean and very modern. The staff is very friendly and they try to ensure that their guests have a nice time. The breakfast was very good and did offer a big variety of choices so you should never leave hungry in the morning and the breakfast room was very nice. The room we had was very comfortable and had a large terrace with a good view.
In summary I would probably stay in the Casa Barca again, so now I have two favorite places in Malcesine.
One good place to eat I can recommend to any first timers to Malcesine is Restaurant Pizzaria Italia da Nikolas. It is right on the water in the middle of town and has a great view and the food is very good. I have eaten there three times and have never had a bad meal.
