We made a tour of the Italy lakes and we stayed 4 nights in this hotel. It was superb in every aspect. The service, the cleanliness, the facilities all were more than what we expected. The breakfast buffet was rich. We had a very nice and quite large room. The hotel boards the lake and is also very near the... More

Convenient and scenic area centrally located between Milano, airport, Lago Maggiore and hiking trails. Rooms were very comfortable and staff very friendly. Great value for the price. The continental breakfast buffet had a large selection of fruit, pastries and cafe/capuccino all very tasty.

Rooms are spacious with a good sized bathroom. Safe in room was large enough to hold my laptop, iPad, kindle,.... You can rent bikes at the hotel for 8€ (or 15€ for an electrical one). The lido is just a few hundred meters away and the town centre approx 10 min by car. The continental breakfast buffet had a large... More

This is a lovely little hotel, recently refurbished which offers really good service, decent food and nicely furnished rooms. For the price we paid I was expecting an average establishment but this place exceeded all our expectations. The hotel is situated in a quite corner of Varese right by the lake. There is nothing in the surrounding area, so plan... More

Beautifull setting right on the lake with impressive veiw of the snow covered mountains. Nice restaurant, reasonably priced. Excellent room, just a little small, but very quiet. On the negative side: you will have to pay for WiFi.

This was our second visit here - last time had been for a few days in November to attend an art exhibition, this time was on our way to Umbria for a holiday.

Un buon hotel nuovo, pulito, moderno e accogliente. La camera, affacciata sul lago, è delle giuste dimensioni con un letto comodissimo, unico appunto i due materassi divisi al posto del matrimoniale, il bagno spazioso e pulitissimo ha una doccia da favola!!! Al ristorante, pulito, onesto e veloce i piatti sono ben fatti e le porzioni abbondanti, si potrebbe puntare di... More
