I booked this hotel after reading some of the reviews on trip advisor, the purpose of the visit was a surprise birthday present for my wife and several of our friends came along and stayed at the hotel.
We had booked a lakeside view superior room and the view from the balcony was absolutely stunning. The rooms were modern and clean as was the rest of the hotel.
The hotel was quiet and only has about thirty rooms so there was never any problems with loungers etc. We were the the only english there although I am aware they are keen to have more.
There were no children at the hotel although this was probably due to the fact that it wasn't the school holidays.
As I have said the hotel is quiet and relaxing and a large majority of the people staying there tended to go out during the day, but that is no surprise because Malcesine has to be one of the most beautiful places in the world.
The hotel is managed by Alessandro who is brilliant, he can never do enough and just enhances the experience further.
I find it hard to believe that tfhe hotel is only three stars as I have stayed in several 4 star hotels that don't compare, in fact I think I would rather stay at the Smeralda than any of the local 5 star hotels, theres just something about it that struck a chord with all of us.
Some reviewers have mentioned the walk back from town , but its not that far and its a pretty gentle hill that lasts about 1/4 mile.
To conclude - Utterly Fantastic and I would recomend it to anyone that wants a relaxing holiday break in a sensational location.
Well done Alessandro!

We went for a wedding and had we known how big Lake Garda is and how charming Malcesine is we would have stayed at Hotel Villa Smeralda for a week. It's a modern, clean hotel just a short walking distance from town. Be prepared with sneakers or comfortable shoes for your trip; taxis are limited, but you will want to walk Malcesine anyway! Alessandro and staff were more than helpful and speak English, Italian and German. I highly suggest the hotel if you're looking for a getaway or if you're visiting the town for a wedding or special occassion.

The Hotel staff were all happy, efficient and helpful without being obtrusive. Restaurant food was not exotic or flashy but was tasty and filling. The rooms were tasteful, airy and spacious, with a great view of the sunset over the lake. The pool was clean, and a real treat after a day out. The hotel is quiet, away from the main lakeside road. There is a steep direct walk back from beach, but gentler routes available. Malcesine is beautiful, a short walk away, and just lively enough, with lots of places to swim and sail.

  • Liked — Feeling relaxed with plenty of space
  • Disliked — Noise from other guests on the veranda area at night below our window - occasionally

We have just returned from attending my nephew's wedding at Malcesine Castle and we stayed at this wonderful hotel. The rooms are to a very high standard and the air conditioning is bliss! The hotel is located on a quiet road which is a plus as the roads can be very busy in the centre of Malcesine. There are wonderful views of the lake and the views from the balcony in our room were superb. I booked direct with Alessandro through the hotel's website and everything went without a hitch. He also arranged transport from the airport and back again. There is a bit of a walk back from the centre of Malcesine but it is worth it to stay at this gem of a hotel.

  • Liked — Standard of rooms, air conditioning, views, good service
  • Disliked — Walk back up the road - about 10 mins from centre of Malcesine
