This was my second visit to this hotel and I was not disappointed it was every bit as good as it was on my first visit. I arrived late so I could not enjoy the excellent dinner. I had breakfast in the morning which was a very generous and inviting buffet. For sure I would visit this hotel again.

This hotel was very clean, had large rooms, well stocked toiletries in bathrooms, and a good breakfast with lots of options. Also conveniently located is a grocery store around the back of the hotel. The only drawback is its location. It's definitely not close to downtown Novara. If you're without a car it's not very convenient, but only €10 will... More

This was my first stay at this hotel, it has great rooms large comfortable and well furnished large bathroom and good shower with a plentiful supply of soaps etc., the jewel in this crown is the restaurant we had a great dinner with an exciting menu. By Italian standards the breakfast buffet is outstanding.

Great hotel, always clean and very quiet area. It is pinched in between residential apartments and condominiums, however Novara is a very quiet city. There was a groups of Gymnast and their coaches in the hotel that weekend for a competition, but apart form the busy evening at the Restaurant, the rest was fine. The restaurant is also decent, better... More

I was on a 24 hour trip to Novara to meet a new supplier and they booked the hotel. Room was nice, night was quiet. I had dinner, which was fine, but quite expensive for what I am used to in the UK. Hotel price was fair. Breakfast was very extensive and starting at 06.30, that was nice early. I... More

We loved using this charming hotel as a home base for day trips to Switzerland (Lugano), Milan, Torino, Bergamo. One can even take a train to Venice and be there in 3 hours. The service is refined. Ask for a room with a balcony in warm weather.

I have stayed in this hotel a few times and I guess it's just ok! The decor in the lobby and dinning rooms is very dated with multiple clocks showing different times, multiple ornaments, flower pots etc etc.....not what you would expect from a city centre business hotel. The hotel was much too warm in the bedrooms and the dinning... More
