“ENJOYED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I stayed here just after 9/11/01. I tried to get back into Hotel Colonne down the hill but they were full so they walked me up the hill to here. They didn't speak English here but they understood when they saw my passport from USA and they said sorry about 9/11. We got along fine. I had beautiful room on back of hotel on top floor so had great view of Lago Varese and the town from my window.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2009

Hotel Sacro Monte is an experience. It is a three star, but the room is a 2.5 star. Hotel owner is friendly. Owing to the location, and history, this is a most interesting place. A small number of Spartan rooms (former convent), mine with great views, which you enter through the restaurant, makes it different. Although I discovered this place by accident and got a room, I would not advise going without a reservation. Ancient television, no internet, but includes an European breakfast (croissants, coffee, orange juice etc.) The mountain-top village started by hermits, seems to hold nightly pilgrimages visiting the Stations of the Cross, followed by a service at the beautiful church behind the hotel. Signs from the bottom of the hill will guide you up the steep drive, but the last 100 meters are unmarked and you will need help to find (drive in front of the souvenir stand). It can also be reached by a funicular railroad and public bus.
