Impressed by the very pleasant and helpful staff. The room was comfortable and impeccably clean, with a tiny balcony overlooking the cloister and garden. The parking is a lottery, there are only a few places on the street belonging to the hotel, but apparently there are some more somewhere else if you fail there. The only major problem is the...

The hotel is located about 10 minutes drive from the beautiful old town of Verbania Pallanza. Didn't particularly like the hotel's own location in Intra, no views from the hotel, and we didn't fancy Verbania Intra itself. Hotel itself is clean and nicely decorated. Very efficient service. Continental breakfast was good and varied.

I have stayed at this hotel three times, ranging from 2-6 weeks per stay. I normally would not stay so long, but I was attending "The Italian School at Il Chiostro" which has a close relationship with the hotel. I used the Full Pension rate and was able to eat a wonderful breakfast at their wonderful breakfast buffet, as well... More

The hotel is clean and rooms are spacious. The hotel is very large with all official photos showing the old monastery wing which has indeed a very nice courtyard. The hotel however has a newer wing too with a very distinctive 1980s Italian feel to it. Our room was located in said 1980s wing so neither the room nor our... More

Everything very positive: convenient location, nice and professional staff, cosy rooms and the garden-like patio. Perfect value for money. Breakfast buffet where you get much more than in a standard Italian hotel. Good place for various events.

We loved Verbania, however, we did not love Il Chiostro. We were excited about staying there because of the hotel advertising that it is an old monastery...we never even saw the monastery. Our room was depressing, prison-like and the view was a brick wall of another building. We tried to stay optimistic because we weren't planning to spend a lot... More
