Good location and good price. It is a bit of a lottery - our room was nice and modern with a beautiful lake view, our friends' room (also with lake view) was a vision of 90s orange. The rooms were cleaned everyday and very comfortable. You are super close to all the restaurants and I found it nice and quiet... More

In terms of location, this is a great little hotel in Arona. OK, so the decor isn't great . . . but it's clean, the bed is comfortable and the shower is good. That's all you need right? Friendly helpful staff will make sure your trip goes without a hitch. Some rooms have little balconies with chairs. Get one of... More

After driving around western part of Italy, I stayed at this hotel at the last day in Italy. I chose this area because this area was closed to Malpensa airport rather than Milan city center (almost no risk of traffic jam) and the cost of the hotel and parking here is much cheaper than those in Milan. The room rate... More

Been coming here on and off since before the web! Been here for a month now and feeling nicely at home! It hasn't changed much over the years. The rooms are dated but clean, you are in the middle of town so the restaurants and shops of Arona are a short walk away... but the outside noise can be loud.... More

We stayed here for 1 month whilst my husband was on a course. Although the staff were extremely friendly & attentive, along with cleanliness being high, the walls in this hotel are paper thin! In the 29 nights we stayed, we had only 2 nights of un disturbed sleep. Almost every night between midnight & 4/5am we were awoken by... More

I stayed here for 5 nights, my room was 101 in the 1st floor lake view, I think it's the worst room in the hotel regardless its view cause in the night after about 6:00 PM till 1:00 AM they light up a high intensity light facing my balcony so I couldn't enjoy the view anymore and still closing the...

I arrived late in the hotel and early morning left it so I can't evaluate bar of the restaurant. In any case room was clean and hotel staff was friendly. Minibar menu wasn't equal to the content of it. So I could not appreciate right price of drinks there.

I went to the Giardino Hotel for only 1 night stay on a business trip. I choose Giardino over other 4stars hotel in Arona because it had better review than other 4stars. I also asked for a lake view room. I arrived very late 1in the morning and left at 9, so it was really a very quick stay. The... More

How this place got 3 stars is a mystery. Seek an alternative. Gross.

Whilst the hotel is in a good location, the hotel is in need of a really good clean. The whole floor smelt of smoke, the non smoking room smelt of smoke and the bathroom was even worse. The shower was covered in mould and the fittings worn. The staff were OK but fairly harsh and not very receptive to customer... More
