“One night before destination”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Modern exterior, interior seems older. Lingering smell of cigarettes. The air-conditioning was insufficient in the room. Otherwise clean and bathroom was adequate. Surprise Italian towels that remind you of table cloths! Funny really and initiates you to Italian culture. They worked however. Wouldn't stay again.

Hard to find but a nice place for a short stay at a budget. The hotel has hospitable staff. The room is tiled by worm for a winter stay. I will recommend for a day or two in which to admire the surroundings area of the lake.

close to the Swiss border, we stayed one night enroute to Florence. Very basic Hotel in a not so good area, Porto Ceresio is a run down lakeside town, shame really, Adequate for an overnight night stay but would not want to spend more than that.

We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and the quality of the manchester. Breakfast was made up of many choices and delivered with very pleasant service. Staff assisted us daily with maps and touring suggestions which we found most beneficial.
