“Great centrally located family run hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This family run hotel is located in the centre of Baveno with lovely views of the lake from the front and of the church and mountain from the back. The owners are very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. This is a small hotel, so has a homely feel and was very clean. There was a lovely buffet breakfast, with plenty of choice and there is a good dinner menu.
The Pagani family that run the hotel speak good English and are happy to help with any queries or to recommend places to visit. I will look forward to staying again on future visits!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have lovely views across the lake. The rooms at the back look out at the mountai...

We paid a return visit to the Hotel Eden last week. The hotel has been in the ownership of the Pagani family for over one hundred years. We had another thoroughly enjoyable stay. The accommodation was sensibly priced, the welcome very friendly and the food was of a good standard. Visits to Lake Maggiore are always a great pleasure. We would recommend the Hotel Eden to anyone who reads this and prefers to stay in a modest hotel that offers good value. We look forward to returning next year.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel which was fine. Rooms at the front face the lake with a wonde...

The hotel is not as grand as some of the larger hotels in the area, it is however homely, comfortable, friendly and a lovely place to stay. The food is excellent and the hotel faces the gardens on the lakefront and is right at the centre of Baveno. I would not hesitate to go back again.

Room Tip: Get a lake facing room (although the back looks over the mountain and church, so is still pretty).

Recently returned from a two week holiday in Baveno staying at the Hotel Eden. The owners, (whose family apparently have run it for around a century), were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is small, with only 25 rooms. The small lounge and bar were welcoming and cheerful. The dining room, which also operates as a public restaurant, was pleasant and surprisingly large. Breakfast was buffet style and satisfying. Dinner was traditional and always filling. Restaurant staff obliging and smiling. Our room was, however, a bit of a let down. It seemed tired and in need of a face lift. The bathroom was crying out for new fitments and tiles, or at least a fresh lick of paint. Baveno is a small, but beautiful resort with good connections to other resorts and local towns. The ferry service was excellent and there were trains and buses. The trains, though were a bit few and far between, and the only way to obtain a ticket, at the rather run down railway station, was from a machine which seemed to work only when it wanted to. We would recommend Baveno to anyone who likes a quietish holiday by an Italian lake with the opportunity to explore the area. We would recommend the Hotel Eden for it's friendliness and satisfying, traditional food, and it's position on the lakeside.

Room Tip: We had read on this website that lake view rooms at the front of the hotel experienced traffic noise...

We stayed for 4 nights after 7 in Lake Como. The hotel was a curate's egg; the family running it were very welcoming and helpful (accommodating some Italian relatives for dinner with us an hour after we arrived). Buffet breakfast wasn't bad, and the evening meal a good experience of Italian home cooking - we liked that you could help yourself to antipasti and dessert, either side of a pasta and main course, which you chose in advance. However, as stated in another review, the word 'tired' could have been invented for our room, and frankly we anticipated better. Overlooking the lake was nice, but the street outside is very noisy till early hours, and we had 2 nights of air con not working so had to have window open. This was, to say the least, annoying.

Room Tip: Choose between lake view, or quiet night!!!

Recently back from a 10 day holiday in Hotel Eden, Baveno. The rooms are very basic, no frills but very clean and the staff are very attentive. We went half board which included a cold buffet breakfast and fixed menu evening meal. The hotel is a great base for exploring the lake. It's worth paying extra for a lake view as the view of the lake and Barromean Islands is stunning. The bus for Stressa stops right near the hotel and the boat station is very close. Must visit Barromean Islands, Villa Taranta, Stressa and Pallanza which are all accessible by boat. Baveno is a small town, not much to keep you amused unless you want to use as a base for exploring. A small promenade and plenty of seats but because of the busy road it's not an easy walk to Stressa. Use it as a base to explore the lovely Lake Maggoire and you won't be disappointed. Just a word of warning, the area does have more than the average rainfall (we had two days of really heavy rain) so be prepared.

Room Tip: Worth paying extra for lake view.

Older building in need of renovation but clean and superb location. Great service, especially considering that I booked the wrong date and arrived a day early. That might not have worked out during the busier summer season. Advertised free wifi did not work in the room so we had to use the lobby. Breakfast was good and fresh. Parking can be a problem if you arrive by car. You use the street or a small lot a block away, both of which can be already well used by other cars. For more than a day, you may want to consider paying a little more for better quality. As mentioned by others, a street side room can be noisy as there is no AC so you may need open windows.

Dear PopTraveller,
thank you for your review.
Our hotel have a little internal courtyard and sometimes is possible to park 2 cars but nearby there is a lot of free pubblic parking. We think that in a small town like Baveno is really a rarity that there are so many free parking space. About our hotel, every winter when the hotel closed we continue to invest to renovate it to offer you a pleasant stay here.
