“Good ratio quality/price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Hotel near the city centre easily accessible by car. Rooms small but quite confortable, signs of time and heavy usage but good ratio quality/price. The b/fast is nth special. Parking on payment. Staff friendly. Bar closed at 23 on saturday. No smoking rooms available.

Location was good - City Center as expected, Single Room was very small but clean, 10 Euro parking per night but at least covered, Breakfast was poor (you get more from a vending machine). Service was friendly and helpful. Overall Value for Money was good.

Location and parking (for fee) are very good. But room was quite badly worn out and breakfast was just awful. Service was OK, nothing special. For the price we paid in July 2012 I would now choose other hotel. Varese did not impress me a lot and is not one of my favourite places anyway.

Easy to find. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean, neat and adequately equipped. However wifi did not work that well, interrupted every 10 mins, was a bit annoying. Buffet breakfast was average. We had a pleasant short stay. They have road side parking nearby. Value for money.

We began our stay at the Palace Grand Varese Hotel, where we always stayed in the past when visiting our family in Varese. However, when we found that hotel drastically different than we remembered it, we scrambled to look for another hotel with availability. We stumbled upon City Hotel, and were very pleased with it. It is right in the shopping area of Varese, in walking distance to everything. The room was an excellent value, and was nonetheless modern, clean, and beautifully furnished, with very adequate air-conditioning. The desk in the room has a little pop-up vanity where a mirror and a hairdryer are hidden -- and it's one of those powerful modern hairdryers that gets the job done quickly -- not one of those old-fashioned hairdryers that you often see in European hotels. The service from the desk was also first-rate. This would be my first choice of a hotel in Varese for my next stay.

What I want from a hotel is comfortable sleep in a clean, quiet room, friendly staff and a great location. This hotel delivered in all criteria.

Staff was really friendly and helpful, from the cleaning lady to the staff in the breakfast room. Bed was very comfortable and I had a great rest. Very close to the bus stop and a short walk to the shops and restaurants. Did I say that staff was very pleasant? Thumbs up, type of hotel I would love to go each time.

The City Hotel Varese is like stepping into a hotel from the 80's. This is not meant in a condescending way, rather the interior is nice but seems to be original back from the day it was made. The lobby features a bar, and if you are lucky and there is football match on it's full of atmosphere. It seems that friends and family members of the staff came to see the game, mixing with hotel guests. Definitely a good experience and not something you get a the Hilton or Marriott :)

The room was clean and functional, but again not from last year. The toilet was immense and had a bidet, which I haven't seen for a while. No complaints over the bed.

The location is 2-min from the walking streets and restaurant, yet its on a corner of the main road leading in and out of town. They also have a underground parking, but it can be tricky negotiating as its quite narrow and supporting columns provide for added entertainment and sweat. Plus double parking seems to be standard.

I wouldn't mind staying here again, the hotel certainly has personality. And it is fairly inexpensive.
