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

Verbania, a town with a lot of history and a great climate. If you are looking for a place to stay at the right price, then 'il Chiostro' is for you. Reception staff speak English and German very well, they are very helpful, especially on arrival.As mine was a business trip I can say that the hotel has all that... More

Stayed for one night here prior a wedding. Arrived a midnight. The reception staff spoke good English. Check in was very friendly and efficient. We ask the night staff if they could open the bar so we could have a few drinks. This was not a problem to them and they did. The rooms were fairly small, spotlessly clean and... More

The bathroom is very narrow and old and has only space for a single person. This is not state of the art. The service personal in the dining hall is not very flexible. The variety of breakfast is rather poor (e.g. no fruits). The location of the hotel is good and silent.

We stayed at Il Chiostro for one night only for €65 (double room, breakfast included). We were surprised, because normally italian hotels add an extra star for international standards, but this is not the case of Il Chiostro. Nice historic building, lot of space in the room, good breakfast, free wifi... what else can you expect? A nice base for... More

Only stayed in this hotel for one night but found it to be a lovely hotel. Our room was large with plenty of windows, the furnishings were good and the beds comfortable. The bathroom only had a shower but as I prefer this to a bath I was happy but my wife would have liked a bath as well. The... More

We only stayed for one night with our tour group but generally this seemed an excellent hotel in a great location in Intra, Verbania. 10 mins walk to lake front and ferry to Laveno, etc. As the hotel was a former monastery, there are two large very pleasant courtyards / gardens at the rear of the hotel, one to the...

We stayed two nights in early October. The room was clean and spacious, with good Wifi connection. We had a large balcony where we could sit and enjoy the evening looking out over the large inner courtyard. Breakfast was OK but not up to the standard of many Italian hotels. The reception staff were not too welcoming but were efficient.... More

I just spent two beautiful days in Intra Verbania and stayed in this hotel. I live in Switzerland and teach Italian. Four of my students wanted to spend a couple of days in Italy practising the language so we decided to go to Intra Verbania, as its not far from the Swiss border. The hotel is very quiet, no children... More
