Old-fashioned glamour finds its home at this grandiose and historic residence just four miles southwest of Verona. Built in 1500 for Marquis Malaspina and his subsequent heirs, it’s everything you’d want from an Italian villa retreat: exquisite setting, grandiose interiors and plenty of carefully preserved original features.
The look in each of the 67 unique guest rooms is one of fabulousness and functionality; think statement-making wood beamed ceilings, gleaming parquet flooring, and period décor galore. Comfortable beds paired with dark wood or wrought-iron headboards, mosaic-clad bathrooms, flatscreen TV’s, and sweeping estate views top things off quite nicely.
Elsewhere, the modern spa area, mini gym, and heated indoor pool with retractable roof make this country sleep one of Castel d’Azzano’s fanciest. Equally worthy of your attention is the inviting bar for anytime drinks, the charming tearoom for reading and board games, and the award-winning signature restaurant for delicious gourmet Italian cuisine paired with fine wines.
How to Get There
Pleasantly suppressed with the history and architecture of the hotel, clean, good facilities helpful and friendly staff. Nice rooms with good WiFi. Breakfast was very good with a good selection of quality food and drinks.
We stayed here for one night after attending a wedding in Lake Garda. We chose this hotel as we wanted something not too far from the airport but also not too far from the centre of Verona. Parking was free which was excellent. The receptionist who greeted us was pleasant but possibly could have been a little friendlier. The room was clean and comfortable, possibly a little more old fashioned than would be my preference, but this is the vibe of this hotel. The communal areas were very nice and the breakfast room was lovely. The food on offer was good - ham, eggs, fresh bread, cakes, coffee, juice etc. There is not much in the surrounding area so definitely recommend having a rental car to get to and from Verona. We drove in and out of the city twice and it was quite easy, 20 mins drive or so. We found cheap on-street parking not too far from the arena (approx 7-10min walk away), which was also free after 8pm. The sauna and steam room had to be turned on for us when we asked to use the facilities so had to wait for them to warm up. the steam room however never seemed to get warm so we could not use it. Pool area is lovely but water was far too cold. There are signs saying they keep the water at 26c for hygiene reasons but I would recommend warming it up to make it more pleasant as we could barely stand it for more than 5 mins. There were some rude guests speaking loudly on their phones in the relaxation/ pool area so would recommend staff make it very clear to guests that this is not allowed as it really affected our experience negatively.
Overall a very nice hotel.
We needed a one night stay in combination with a menu tasting arrangement near Verona. We chose Villa Malaspina by coincidence but a great choice. We were welcomed by a busy receptionist, who had a number of check outs before we could check in. He was very thorough, and we had decided to book a panoramic suite with a roof terrace. Great room. Big and comfortable with a staircase to the room top terrace with fantastic 360 view on the surroundings. The room was comfortable and included water, tea and coffee and with a big bath room and all amenities. Big parking lot and good, solid breakfast included. We have already booked our next stay in May.
We were on a tour thru Italy and this hotel was out Verona hotel. We took a taxi home from downtown Verona and it was a bit far but well worth the trip. The hotel rooms were large and well appointed and the bathroom was huge. Breakfast was very good and the welcome dinner was amazing for hotel food. the courtyard was a plus relaxing after dinner with a drink.
This hotel was beautifully conformed from a personal residence to a hotel. It offers alot of character. We has dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was absolutely delicious. The grounds are beautiful.
