“Environmentally sustainable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

This hotel is both comfotable and well on the way to being environmentally sustainable. Not only is it energy conservation /recycling aware, and well integrated with public transport; but the management will provide instant information on all timetables/prices for local and trans-frontier road, rail, lake and air transport. Varese is built on a spur of high ground which makes getting around by car somewhat difficult for geography and traffic conditions, so we found leaving the car at the hotel and getting about by public transport, taxi and foot by far the best way to enjoy the many museums and attractive pedestrianized town centre. As a touring centre Varese is really a clever location to visit the Lombard lakes and the Ticino areas (the city is 6Km from CH). Both the Italian and Swiss Motorway networks are easily accessible from Varese. The Lake, somewhat difficult to get to and the surrounding countryside are stunning with the Campo dei Fiori and Sacro Monte di Varese within easy distance. There is a very well organized tourist offering especially covering the Insubria Euroregion (running from the Gotthard and the Canton Ticinino (the many frontier posts are fully open and no-one asks for documents any more) to Malpensa Airport and east to Novara, and skirting the north of Milan and Como. The Hotel is close to the city centre and Milan is one hour by train (two stations - 10mins walk away)

Dear Guest,
we would like to thank you first of all for your very detailed review about the hotel but also the area in which we are.
As you well explained we are close to the swiss boarder if you want to visit Switzerland, but also close to the motorway to lakes and Novara.
We are part of EcoWorld Hotel: it is the first group of environmentally-friendly hotels and bed and breakfasts in Italy to adopt a unique and innovative philosophy in a new project aimed at safeguarding the environment.
In this project is including also suggesting public transportation to move from a part to another, and avoid smog and crowded streets.
It's a pleasure host a guest like you so environment dedicated, and we hope to have you here in the near future, to discover more our beautiful lakes area.
Best Regards,

Erica

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel Ungheria. The hospitality was outstanding with a warm, friendly and helpful staff that coudn't have been nicer. Accommodations were perfect for our needs. As an example of their quality service the hotel staff helped select a tour guide that spent an entire day showing us around the area which turned out to be one of the highlights of our stay in Italy...we would highly recommend this hotel to friends and strangers...

Summary: Big room, clean, friendly and excellent breakfast!

We stayed here for one night on our way to Tuscany (We are from Belgium). The room was more than big enough to fit our stroller (for our newborn). Clean accomodation as well.

The service was friendly and the breakfast was refreshing: everything you want from a buffet + fresh fruit and bakery.

Thanks!

We were part of the World Masters Rowing Regatta held on Lake Varese. The hotel was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and quiet. The breakfasts were tasty and wholesome. The Segafredo family were most helpful and friendly. Most unusually the family gave a reception for all the rowers staying there on the last evening. We would most certainly recommend the hotel.Grazie mille to Enzo, Luciane, Natalena, Anne, Erica and Simone.

Dear Hugh and Vivienne,
It was a pleasure host you and all your group here at the hotel, during Fisa Masters Regatta 2013: you were wonderful, and we saw your passion for rowing!
At the end of the week, Segafredo Family, the owners, organised for all guests and offered an 'aperitivo' in the reception hall to celebrate all the athletes.
We are glad you enjoyed our staff and service and all staff members send you a big hug from Italy!
Hope to have you here very soon,

Best wishes,

Erica

The staff at the hotel could not be nicer or more friendly. I suffered a loss of an important item whilst saying at the hotel and I was helped out of my predicament by the Segafredo family without question or hesitation. In addition, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is a true feast. I would definitely stay there on future visits to Varese and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back of the hotel (or make sure to pack ear plugs) - the rooms at the front...

This hotel was awesome! The accomodations are clean and comfortable. They are a "green" hotel which I appreciate! The family owned business really takes care of its customers, remembering them by name, helping everyone out with their needs. They are very accomodating! The breakfast was really great with lots of variety of fresh fruits, meats, cheese and breads. Hotel is on a bus line so even though it is out from center city, it was a quick trip into town. Several good restaurants nearby. I would definitely return to this hotel!

Room Tip: I had a room on the 3rd floor in the eaves. It had a street facing balcony. Rooms on the back side...

we stayed in the hotel twice. On our way to Tuscany and on our return home from Rome. Each time for one night. It is a good hotel for people who are passing through. The family Segafredo is very nice and warm, very clean rooms, fine and elaborate breakfast. Very recommendable.
