This is a very romantic hotel. The building expresses itself very well in its architecture and fresh colors on the outside and by the static ballroom-effect on the inside. The rooms are quiet. We had some sort of duplex room which we liked a lot; there was a desk and living room part with terrace downstairs and bedroom an bathroom upstairs. The pool area is very nice, its inside but the sliding doors give it a cleaner, outside effect. A spacious garden where everyone can find their little space to relax offers a relief from everyday stress. You can even order a boat to pick you up at the hotel and make a tour on the Lago Maggiore. Or you could walk to town and take a taxiboat. Town is walking distance and has lovely and affordable little restaurants with terraces with really nice food. Only one minus point: tiny bed with a rather hard mattress wasn't very comfortable. Other remark : We asked the person who was representing the sommelier of the hotel to help us out with the choice of a good Italian wine to accompany our evening dinner, but he couldn't say anything more than 'red wine, white wine and rosé, going from cheap to very expensive' ...? Also, the conduct of the Italian waiters wasn't very elegant not to say unpolite in particular to people who could speak only two words of Italian, and they seemed very grumpy. We were almost afraid to ask something more. Maybe it was the far above average age of the waiters. It was a four star hotel but it's Italy, if you know what I mean. Luckily the setting was astonishing and we had a laugh.
