We stayed here second week in July 2014. Saw a deal online, checked the other reviews and arrived with an open mind as we were only here for three nights.
Firstly there is an easier route from the train station to what google maps advise. Just walk out the front of the station towards the lake, then turn left so the lake is on your right. Keep going until the Piazza with Suisse Hotel facing you then turn left onto the Piazza make your way diagonally to the right side and and go left. You can see the TreRe sign now on the right about 100 paces. All in all 5 minutes walk.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we had to change rooms but the first room was more modern, recently refurbished. Our problem was there was no hot water coming through that room, so the receptionist was more than happy to change our room. The second was older, but to be perfectly honest, it was very clean, it had everything we needed. Big wardrobe, nice bathroom.
Buffet breakfast was very good. We had dinner the first night as there was an electrical storm and torrential rain, so didn't fancy wandering. The food was really good along with the service.
The location of this hotel couldn't be better, right in the middle. Opposite a large department store with a small supermarket underneath it.
We discovered a market near the Tower and more independent shops further out.
The choice of bars for coffee, and Pasticceria for cakeis is great.
However, the next evening we did find a great place just 5 minutes walk, La Vita Bella. Huge portions, really good food at reasonable prices. We even went back our last night.
The lake ferries are easy. Just look at the timetable and pick your preferred times, there are different speed boats. We went to Argengno on a boat that took about an hour, lovely day, lovely views. We went up the cable car to Pigra.... Fab! Our return ferry was going to be a long wait so we paid a small supplement to return on the rapido, it took about 25 mins and was fantastic. If you're a little iffey about boats and water, don't worry the lake is pretty flat and the boats don't seem to dip at all.
All told we would definitely return and stay here again. Can't fault it.
