This hotel is situated a short walk from Lago Maggiore. It has clean rooms and a mediocre breakfast, and free parking. Most of the staff were relaxed and friendly. Also they let us arrange a late check in as they are normally only open until 20:00

They upgraded us to a nice large room on the top floor with beautiful views of the greenery and mountains. The amenities were sufficient and of good quality. Breakfast was... More
