Hotel Excelsior Bay

Plus

Italian Lakes, Lake Garda

  • Superb lakefront position just a few minutes' walk from the centre of Malcesine
  • Lakeside terrace where al fresco breakfast can be enjoyed

The Hotel Excelsior Bay occupies a superb position with splendid views over Lake Garda, situated on the lakefront promenade within a few minutes' walk of the centre of Malcesine.

A highlight of this hotel is its large lakeside terrace that you can enjoy during those balmy summer evenings. Throughout the warmer months, start your days with an al fresco breakfast on the lakeside terrace (weather permitting) and spend hours lazing around the swimming pool. Whilst some areas of the hotel are slightly dated, the Excelsior Bay offers a unique location and is ideal for those wanting easy access to the beautiful town of Malcesine.

Guest rooms are simply decorated and comfortable but this hotel enjoys a beautiful setting by the crystal-clear waters of Italy’s largest lake and within easy reach of Monte Baldo, one of the most evocative places to visit on Lake Garda.

 

The hotel has 70 rooms (official rating 4 star) Citalia does not allow children at this hotel, however this is not an adult-only property.

About the location
A holiday in Malcesine takes you to the shores of Lake Garda, in northern Italy. This fairy tale medieval town, with a backdrop of the lake’s ice blue waters and an imposing mountain range, is a favourite with couples attracted by the romance of its cobbled streets, colourful houses and relaxing beaches. Active holidaymakers will love hiking or cycling in the mountains, para-gliding at dusk or stand up paddle boarding across the lake. Adventurous travellers will love riding the cable car 7,000 feet up Monte Baldo, where you can look down through the clouds over the town and surrounding area.

The town rises from the shore of the lake, its steep cobbled streets leading to historic landmarks like Castello Scaligero, built in the 13th Century. The castle and grounds now house three museums and temporary exhibitions. Around the port, you'll find a selection of cafés serving spremuta (freshly squeezed fruit juice) and gelato, as well as the odd glass of wine. While away an hour watching boats sailing on the lake and cable cars heading up the mountain.
Transfer Time
The hotel is 1 hour 20 minutes from Verona airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.
