The hotel is situated in the best place of Varese, that is an average North Italian city, where it's nothing to do, if you are not on a business trip. The hotel looks like a real palace - especially from the outside and from the social places (lobby, restaurant).
Although the standard room is small and lacks some pleasant facilities that you expect to find in 4-stars hotel (such as a bath robe, bath shoes, modern hairdryer). I was also surprised by the shower tap - which was only high in the wall, so that when water reached the body it was too much spread. Moreover I should mention that our double bed consisted of two mattresses, one of which was lower than the other one and with a hollow. There was also no safe in the room, and wifi was provided only in the lobby, only for a half an hour - and was so slow, that I hardly managed to check-up for my flight! Oh, yes - and the last night was spoilt by an alarm, which switched on twice without any logical reason!
The advantages of the hotel also should be mentioned. A good large parking, a large and pleasant territory, tasty food in the restaurant and very amiable waiter there. It was clean in the hotel and in the room. The tea was for free in the room and the tea bags were added every day. And we had a very nice view (from our corner room with balconies on two sides).
As a conclusion - I would recommend this hotel - although don't expect too much not to be dissapointed (as I was in the beginning of our living there).
