It is a really interesting place. History tells that the house is dated 1335. Generally speaking, it is located in the middle of nowhere in the small village close to Italian-Swiss border. At the same time you can't find a better location to visit Fox Town designer outlet located in Mendrisio.
The hotel got 4 stars and you will find that it is a fair 4 stars. Rooms are big, with high ceiling (ancient wood or at least looks like ancient), tastefully decorated. Wooden floors looking brand new. Bed is comfortable enough but may be some cm too short for me (I am 190 cm high) but nevertheless sleeping quality was absolutely ok. Bathroom is big also, but a little bit too dark – anyway, perfect shower and bathroom amenities smell was nice. Hotel will provide you with slippers and bathrobe. Room got individual air condition but to tell you truth we never used it, just opened window and it was enough at that time.
Speaking about minor points I should mention breakfast. It is poor for 4 star hotel and orange juice went sour (too old I think). No big choice. Coffee quality is too low (especially for Italy). Lady at the breakfast room wasn't friendly. At the same time all other staff was absolutely welcoming and helpful.
Second (but really small) minor point is wifi connection – you should re-enter complicated password every time when you log in. At the same time wifi connection is more or less stable.
I should tell you a couple of words about the hotel restaurant – it is a must to visit it, imho. Food is excellent and the service is very good. During Friday and Saturday restaurant was full (when I say full I mean it) with locals. Order pizza from their oven or meat, anyway you will be satisfied, I am sure.
