The Villa Sofia is a classic building from the early 1900, with its own style. Some people have said the hotel is hard to find, which is partly true, as the street number isn't on any GPS device we had (car + 2 phones...), but once you find the street there are signposts to guide you at least to the rear entrance (best spot to park your car since no one goes there and the front parking is always full). We arrived very late in the evening, had called the hotel that we'd be late, which caused no trouble at all. Room was with a partial view of the lake, nice as we didn't specify. Room is spatious (for 2), we were on the 3rd floor. Though it was clean, there were traces of dust under the bed, nothing major but a lack of love for detail. Breakfast is hotel-classic, good but nothing to shout about. Service was nice, always helpful and friendly. One staff member must have spoken at least 4 languages (one east-european, Englis, Italian and German). I would recommend it as we had a nice time (3 nights) at the end of August 2012, and it was VERY hot outside.
Only gripe I have is that the isolation from the other rooms is rubbish. You can hear nearly everything. I usually hate this but for some reason I didn't mind this time around, must be the general good mood around there :)
