Few minutes from main Ferry station, situated several steps from a shopping street, but in a shadow and calmness. Main entrance hidden in an arch. Good coffee & breakfast, kettle in a room was lovely! All the toilettries you need in a well designed bottles. Nearby are numerous shops, restaurants and other wonders of comfort. Supermarket 5-7 min on foot.... More

Dear Customer, thank you for your review, we are sorry we couldn't offer you a wifi connection in your room but our hotel it's an historical building so it's very difficult to have a decent internet connection speed; we removed the in-room wifi but we have still a cable connection. Beside that, thank you very much for your appreciation, we... More

We chose to stay at this hotel as it was dog friendly, and we were travelling back from Greece to the the UK with our 2 Scottish Terriers. Hotel La Contrada is tucked away in the narrow streets of the town, which is very charming, but makes it difficult to find by car. We had to park and then search... More

We arrived around 2pm to a rather lifeless Verbania, and only to find out that the receptionist was out for lunch and lunch time in Verbania is from 12pm-3pm. This was inferred because we walked around (there are plenty of shops right next to this hotel) and noticed that almost all the shops said they would be back at 3pm.... More

Dear Customer, thank you for your review, we are going to reply point by point: 1 - Since we are a 3 stars hotel, by the Italian law we do not need a reception opened 24hrs a day. The owner lives in the hotel, therefore, they should have either call or ring the bell located by the enter door. Italian... More

We were in La Contrada for 5 nights. The location is nice in the pedestrian area of Verbania Intra. If your window looks at the street you might hear the noise of people passing by. The room was nice and clean too. Only the breakfast was unfortunately pretty poor, below italian standards. The price was quite OK for the quality.

Four star hotel - you must be joking. Firstly when we arrived at 2pm the hotel was locked up and in darkness. That was a first for me, a number was left on the door to call the receptionist. The hotel was clean enough but very basic. We did pay extra for a superior room. The bed felt like a... More

I was in lake maggiorre for a wedding from London. I needed a place to stay and wanted to avoid the bigger and pricier hotels nearer the venue. Picked this out mainly for the locality and the price. I was not disappointed. It was very clean and basic. I arrived late and I would advise calling ahead. The owner got... More

New, elegant and clean. Awesome room, comfortable, peaceful Perfect location in the very heart of the city centre. Rich breakfast. Reasonable price. But... The "private parking" is a few hundred meters away, the area is pedestrian only, no lift is available (I had to carry my bags from the parking to the hotel and then up to the second floor... More
