“Nice place for stop over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We stay in this hotel quite often. Is located in a useful location , 20 min from Malpensa airport, 40 min from Lugano and just 10 min from the center of Varese. Not to mention 5 min from Varese lake. Rooms are small but comfortable. Rain shower, amenities kit and breakfast are included in the rate that , if you prepay is around Euro 70/ night per double room. They offer a dinner service with few but delicious dishes and are having bicycles to bike around the lake. If you are asking for odd number rooms, you have private parking with direct access to your room.

There is good Internet in every rooms and the lobby too. The breakfast was good. Every day cleaning the room. There is large parking. The destination is very well. It is close to the highway, close to the centre of Varese.

We stayed at the hotel on the splendours of Italy tour we found the room to be large clean and comfortable . The staff were friendly and accommodating,The hotel is single story with the breakfast and dinner served on the upstairs mezzanine. The food was good quality and had plenty of options. The hotel is modern with great staff I would be happy to stay here again.

I stayed at Hotel Capolago for 2 nights as part of the Splendours of Italy tour, the hotel is quite modern, and the rooms are comfortable and spacious, with a large, clean shower. The location of the hotel is in a quiet part of town, but with easy access to several lakes, the Swiss (Lugano) Border and Milan. There are lovely walks and you can use bicycles from the hotel and take a bike trail to a lake. We walked into the town to look for somewhere outside of the hotel to have a drink after dinner, but there wasn't anyone that would accommodate a group of us, there is no 'nightlife' in the area.

Room Tip: All rooms are on the ground floor. My room faced onto the back of hotel, and was very quiet.

Hotel Capolago is a good place for a stop-over or for a two nights visit if you want to visit other places nearby, such as Lavena near lake Lago Maggiore. Try the cable train there! Or play golf on the local golf course of Varese. Splendid course and located on the " garden' of on old monastery, now being the clubhouse. Incredible!! Rooms are comfortable, although you have only a nice shower. Interior is modest and dull. On the same road you find a good and fancy restaurant. So you can walk the road back after having your wine there.
Breakfast was like eating in a cantina. Many businessmen stay here, and we know why. Prices are reasonable and the hotel is located very central.

Room Tip: Don't go for the room next to the service room. It's quit noisy in the morning there.

This was our second visit to Capolago. The standards are some of the highest I have experienced in a commercial hotel. From the moment we walked into the spacious lobby we had a feeling that this property was well cared for. The check-in was very easy, the receptionist had our reservation in front of her. There is a very comfortable and convenient bar in the lobby that is served by the front desk staff. We walked down the carefully lit hallway to our room. All rooms seem to be equal. The rooms on the front look out onto large grassy lawns with plants and trees. The rooms on the back look across the driveway to green area. Inside the rooms we were surprised to find a big bed, plenty of room for our luggage, a big writing desk, internet connection and one of the BEST bathrooms in Italy. The shower reminded us of a "spa" shower!!
We spent only one night here this year and were sorry to leave so soon!
Oh, and the breakfast was perfectly displayed with many choices.

Room Tip: The rooms are equal. We prefer the rooms on the "front" of the hotel as there is a big gr...

This one floor, new hotel (only five years old), is perfectly located outside the city of VARESE.
It is ideal location for lakes visit if wish to avoid staying in the 'crowdedness' of the lakes area.
Spending two nights in this place, we found that rooms, as well as bathrooms are specious and clean. Room cleaning and towel replacing performed on a daily basis.
Rooms equipped with flat TV screen, small mini-bar and are all air-conditioned. Wi-Fi is available in all areas (ask front desk for username and password). Staff is friendly and helpful (English spoken) and breakfast is great, with large variety of everything to choose from.
Many places around to dine at evenings. One is right outside the place (American Steakhouse) and many others, offering Italian cuisine, are in a nearby driving distance.

Tip - Rooms on the back are car's accessible. Back door allowing you direct access to your car.
But you'll have to ask for these type of room. I did not know about this option when checked in, and got very disappointed for not being offered by front desk of this option.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are car's accessible, with joined parking space.
