Although having a car would be ideal--plenty of parking--I was able to travel to the hotel by train from Milan via Turin easily. The hotel arranged for a taxi pick-up at the station, which turned out to be an excellent option as well to visit the Sacra di San Michele, the goal of my trip. (Having injured my ankle the week before, I wasn't able to walk the way there and down as planned.) The hotel is welcoming, comfortable, and situated on the lake shore which makes for lovely settings for walks in the area as well as al fresco breakfast views. Rooms are spacious, simple, but with balconies overlooking the lake. Next door to the hotel is a super restaurant with well-prepared standard Italian dishes (including take-out pizza). Great spot for visiting the area.
