“Honest but can be improved”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Nice renewed building, near to the Swiss border and lake of Como.
We haven't stay to the hotel, only eat in the restaurant.
We paid 14€ only for a 3 courses menu which was the daily menu, It is really not expensive for the served quantity but the tastes and the cooking were not the top. "A la carte" was a bit better.
The staff was friendly.

Hotel is nice, Rooms are clean and equipped with all necessary.
Wifi does not work on the room (106) :-(
However, real downturn is being compeltely ripped off for minibar use.
Checked in after midnight and not possible to get a drink in the bar.
Recommended to me, to use the minibar.
Next morning they charged EUR 19,00 for 1 beer + 1 brandy.
Due to time pressure no time to argue.
This is completly unreasonable!
Even 5* Hotel in Moscow or Tokyo are not that crazy.

I have no idea why some folks are being so negative about this hotel. Our room for the week was very spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff were friendly and attentive - the only small problem we had was the coffee supplies not being replenished one day, which ultimately resulted in us having sufficient supplies to open our own coffee shop by the end of the week! The hotel is situated in a quiet village very close to the Swiss border - very handy for popping over to get fuel which is much cheaper in Switzerland than in Italy. We spent time whizzing around in our little hired Fiat Panda - Lake Como, Lake Maggiore, Lake Lugano. We even did the Stelvio Pass - spectacular!! - and Maranello for the Ferrari museum (and a drive of a F430 california)...
We ate at the hotel on our first night, and had a very good pizza. Breakfasts were lovely - plenty of choice and variety. I would reiterate that you need a car if you stay at this hotel, but there is plenty of free parking on site, and if you want somewhere quiet to rest your head then you'd have to try very hard to find better value for money than Hotel Cascina Canova.

The rooms of Cascina Canova are comfortable, spacious and well equiped - however, Wifi does not work in all rooms. Staff is very welcoming and helpful. However, there is an unpersonal atmosphere here, some live is lacking. Not much in the surroundings either, you would definitely need a car

We were positively surprised with this hotel. Old style with stylish wooden roof. Very nice room, big and clean. We did not try restaurant but breakfast was quite good. We close to FoxTown in Mendrisio - really good outlet.

We can highly recommend this hotel.

Ancient (badly) restored farmhouse.
The parking lot is far away from the entrance with no covered walkway fully of mug due to the rain.
It's seems to be a family run business which thinks big with no competence at all to do it.
No reservation found by the front desk extremely unprofessional agent (and probably we were the only guests ...). Almost 15 minutes to clear the check in procedures.
Lift out of service. Thanks God the room was on the first floor.
Average room with rustic furnitures. Nothing special at all. No TV channels in english.
Good size bathroom with mighty dirty whirlpool bathtub. Highly unsuggested to fill it up and switch it on!
Since the property is in the middle of nowhere, we asked a restaurant suggestion to another incompetent and rude agent (sister of the the other one???), who almost refused to give us any suggestion promoting their restaurant instead. We decided to stay just because of the bad weather. Bad choice! It's nothing else than a gross, loudy and low target pizzeria.
Probably the whorst service ever experienced. Slowness and unprofessionality.
Food: better don't rate it (but don't eat it neither).
2 stars value breakfast. No service at all. Cold room.
No further comments about the check out.
If you need to spend the night in the area .... don't waste time to stop here!

I am Michael , i live in Italy now for 18 years and i write you this report in english so every visiter can understand.

this place is like a bubble , nice building , looks like you get all the confort you need .

but listen to this , the food is an absolut disaster !!! and can not get worse .
the pizza was still rar inside ,the cheese quality is not mozzarella just fat cheap cheese.
my wife had a fish plate which was cold and smelt like moth balls ( il pesce puzzava di naftalina ) i have to say we didnot eat anything so so bad in 18 years, but the comment from the owner was that the pizza cook put too much cheese on it ,; better the owner return to his previous job,
at the end we had to pay for the pizza but refused to pay for the fish.

ragazzi ,ragazzi che fine fa il mondo ???

better go back to michieletto to eat fish or meat and to rosso di sera for a wonderful pizza.

hope you didnot get food poisend merry christmas , Michael

P.S.: please donot spend € 110,- ( without any drinks ) for new years dinner party there,
better buy your wife some sexy underwear !
