Excellent hotel within short walk of town centerPosted Jul 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
3 star hotel but with 5 star service. Roberto and his staff cannot do enough for you. Hotel is about a 15 minute walk along the lake to town center or the tourist bus stops outside for €1 per person. Supermarket just across the road and ATM next door. Cannot recommend this hotel enough, stayed here for family holiday and will be back again.

Brilliant ExperiencePosted Jul 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
From first arrival to departure Roberto and staff were superb. Gave us maps , details of restaurant discounts in Malcesine and cards for reductions for the boats and cablecar to Mount Baldo. Great also to have access to pool on site. Although 20 minute walk from Malcescine the walk is beautiful and if you do not want to walk there is a tourist bus stop from outside the hotel for 1 euro. Also worth noting the bus stop for the Verona to Riva Del Garda bus is beside hotel allowing easy access to other towns on eastern side of lake garda. Definitely hope to get back there some day.

Lovely Hotel, warm and friendly staffPosted Jun 6, 2013
Pros: The staff
Cons: A fridge in the room would have been a bonus
Location: Ideal, superstore across the road
A lovely hotel that is superbly run by Roberto and his staff, always a pleasure to deal with them over our 7-day stay. The hotel is a 20 minute walk from Malcesine, but there is an hourly tourist bus for 1 euro, we actuall walked as it's a good opportunity to work off all the pasta and pizza, the food is VERY samey throughout the whole area, you end up yearning for anything non-italian after a few days.

Close to beautiful lake walkPosted Sep 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel Benacus is a lovely, family-run hotel, ideal for couples and families. The staff are exceptionally helpful and welcoming. Rooms are compact and very clean. The breakfast buffet is a treat, offering something for every taste. Beside the hotel there is a pharmacy, and small shops for groceries, newspapers, and bus tickets. Across the road is a supermarket. Beside the supermarket is a path down to the lake. This makes for a gorgeous view across and up the lake, and a refreshing stroll into Malcesine - about 25 minutes. This was our second visit to Hotel Benacus, and we're looking forward to next year already

very friendly family run hotelPosted Jun 18, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very happy with our stay at the hotel Benacus. Roberto, his staff & father were very friendly & did all they could to be helpful. Recently renovated, the bedrooms & restaurant were very clean & nicely furnished. Delightful garden area with pool, jacuzzi & ample sunbeds & umbrella's. Bar with indoor & outdoor seating which provided light meals till 2100hrs. Perfect location, Malcesine centre being a 25 minute walk away along a magnificent paved (& well lighted after dark) lakeside walk. The views were stunning & it was an enjoyable part of our daily routine to take this route. If you preferred, the 'tourist bus' charged 1 euro per person for the short drive into town & picked up very close to the hotel. Will return.

Truly Memorable ExperiencePosted Jul 5, 2011 on Hotels.com
Fabulous family run hotel, faclities were excellent, every part of the hotel spotlessly clean. Lovely pool area always sun beds available. Hosts Roberto and Marissa were extremely friendly and helpful providing advice on places to visit and things to do made you feel welcome and valued. Even the family dog Arturo welcomed every guest as if they were a life long friend. Continental breakfast had excellent choice and you could eat as much or as little as you wanted. Plenty of parking spaces and you could hire bikes from the hotel. There were 2 super markets and a couple of small shops in the immediate vicinity and prices were good, bottles of decent wine for 4-5 euros.Beautiful walk along Lake Garda into Malcesine which took about 20 minutes interspersed with hotels and restauraunts and the smell of pine trees, heaven! Or you could get the tourist bus which was extremely reliable into the centre for 1 euro..brilliant service. Malcesine was wonderful, full of lovely restaurants some cheap and cheerful others more sophisticated but you got what you paid for which in our case was good food..special mention for the Gondolier, try the lamb chops..superb! Most bars , restaurants served really good wine for 10 euros a bottle , 2 euros a glass. Cable car well worth the trip but go early to avoid crowds and take good walking shoes and sun cream you will experience fantastic views of snow capped mountains quite surreal when its 30 degrees. Use the ferries to check out other resorts but although they are pretty, quaint, charming Limone, Sirmione and Lazise were our favourites, I think Malcesine is the best. Never been to the Italian Lakes before but will definitely return, definitely go back to the Benacus can't wait. If you don't enjoy yourself here you must be really hard to please.
