My teen-age daughter and I shared a room here during her Spring break, arriving directly from the Milan airport by. Tom-Tom got us with-in a block, but still had to circle around a bit to find it. The hotel is in a pedestrian zone, that you can temporarily bring your car into in order to unload luggage. Free parking available nearby on the streets; in the Summer these spaces will be hard to find, I think. Our room, 433, was ready at 10 am, so we were allowed to check in early. There is a small lift;( but not big enough for a wheelchair, I don't think) The front desk personnel are friendly and helpful. Room on 4th floor was fine; clean; two smallish twin beds, balcony, with 2 folding chairs and table, over-looking rooftops with restricted view of Lago Maggiore. Any lower floors would probably not have a view at all, but I'm not sure about that. The halls and rooms are not fancy, but more than adequate and a good value considering the central location. Our room had excellent rolldown shutters that completely blocked the light. The picturesque church tower across the street was less quaint when it rang it's bell during our naps. Breakfast was good; fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, pastries, meats & cheese and any kind of coffee will be made from behind the bar.
Dinner is not available from this location; they have an associated hotel; Hotel Meeting, in which they have a restaraunt. We decided to find another place to eat for no other reason than we wanted to explore the city some more. The town's main supermarket is just around the corner, if you need to stock your backpack for a trip to the islands. The ferry boats to Borromean Islands are just a few blocks away.
Wi-Fi; 24 hours = 5 Euros
All in all, it was a good start to our week in Italy.
