“Really good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2012

We stayed at the Casa Barca for a week in the Exclusive room. The room was small, but clean and had a beautiful view. The balcony was also small, some balconeys had room for a sun lounger, ours just had room for a table and 2 chairs. The only downside to the room was the hard bed (we both had aching backs by the end of the week), and the double bed was two beds pushed together. The breakfast was good, with lots of choice to suit all needs. I had a massage (50% discount that they were doing most weeks), and this was excellent.....a proper sports massage that really did work wonders, and was excellent value for money. The pool was clean and rarely got too busy, with plenty of shade under the trees for us pale skinned Brits! It was a good location....but do take flat shoes as many of the streets are cobbled and steep. Do take the cable car to the top of the mountain as the walks and views are stunning. The gym is really good (although the air con wasn't working and trying to woek out in 42% heat was impossible!). I would recommend staying here and next time I would gire a car for the week as the cost of transfers both ways is the same price as a small car hire for a week, and then you have the flexibilty to drive to other places.

Room Tip: Go for a suite as the Exclusive room and balconey are small.

Stayed for 5 nights in the "Exclusive" with a large balcony with lake & pool view. The hotel is situated in a quiet area but it is still very central. When you go to lake garda and you are not sure about the weather conditions the great hotel facilites (wellness, fitness, pool etc.) will help you to spend a nice day even if it rains outside.

Booked a week in Malcesine having previously visited some 24 years ago. Chose Casa Barca based on trip advisor reviews, and was not disappointed. As others have said, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the views spectacular and the facilities first class. For us though, it was the staff that really made the difference and we would particularly like to thank Ana who was tirelessly friendly and helpful despite our many questions and her busy workload. Massage with 50% discount was most therapeutic and great value.

Also recommended are the Ristoro restaurant which offers a discount to Casa Barca guests, and Re Lear in Piazza Cavour which has 4 excellent menus including local and fusion Japanese. The wine list is both excellent and unusual and the recommendations made by the owner were well explained and well suited to the tasty superb food.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 3 which, though not large, had a good sized balcony (with an amazing view). The s...

We stayed at the Casa Barca whilst getting married in Malcesine. We chose a mid range room which had a large terrace facing the lake. The hotel is modern in design and has excellent facilities. The room was large, clean, light and airy. Shower powerful and hot. The roof terrace is stunning and has amazing views of the lake and castle- it was barely used by guests which was good as it was quiet. The spa offers a relaxing area with jacuzzi and sauna. The breakfast is continental with a small hot section but the selection of coffees and teas was plentiful. Ginseng coffee particularly good. Quiet rooms. Very comfortable bed. Modern Bar. The hotel is in an ideal location, just back a little from the main street, up a small hill. The rooms and indeed grounds are excellent fror wedding photography. Finally the staff, thank you so much for making our stay personal and relaxed. Compliments to the owners who employ friendly and professional staff. They are extremely helpful and knowledgable- even remembering our first names. Our parents stayed at the hotel also and being in their 60's and well travelled-they have seen a few hotels. They were very impressed with the hotel and would love to go back. We highly recommend this hotel and it deserves its number 1 malcesine hotel rating.

A truly excellent hotel. Suberbly decorated, clean, welcoming, and with great balcony views.
Breakfasts were a culinary delight.
The only possible downside ... extremely hard beds ! But the hotel staff did try to solve the problem.
Highly recommended.
