The hotel is very well located near the Varese Lake and the building blends well with the landscape. However, I don't think it is a 4 star hotel. The lobby looks cheap with tiled floor and a bar with no staff. The walls are so thin that when someone opens the door of a room near by it feels they... More

The location of the hotel is in a quiet part of town, but with easy access to several lakes, the Swiss (Lugano) Border and Milan. There are... More

Or play golf on the local golf course of Varese. Splendid course and located on the " garden' of on old monastery, now being the... More

This was our second visit to Capolago. The standards are some of the highest I have experienced in a commercial hotel. From the moment we walked into the spacious lobby we had a feeling that this property was well cared for. The check-in was very easy, the receptionist had our reservation in front of her. There is a very comfortable... More
