“Beautiful Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The hotel is located in a beautiful little town on the base of the Alps is very quiet & serene. The rooms are a nice size with a parking area off of the main road. The staff are wonderful & go out of their way to make your stay comfy & they are very helpful. We found this hotel was central to other towns in the area & we used it as our base & were glad we did. The town is very unique & we truly enjoyed going for a walk every night & there are several restaurants to walk to or you can eat at the hotel, we found there food to be very good & well priced.
The breakfast area was very large & comfortable with the usual continental breakfast. We would most definately stay here again if we returned to this area.

The location of the Albergo Italia downtown Varallo is perfect and you can park your car in the private yard in the back; these were our first impressions - both positive.
88 Euros for two people including breakfast confirmed our good fortune.
People at the reception desk as well as the servers of dinner and breakfast were all very friendly and accommodating. We felt we could really relax at this albergo.
Varallo is an enjoyable town to walk around after breakfast and before leaving: it is a lived-in community, there are no "dead storefronts". We found interesting shops where owners/attendants are so interesting that we we bought more stuff than we needed but enjoyed doing so. Varallo is a great place to watch Italians live their routine: sit at a sidewalk table of any of the cafes, sip a cappuccino and enjoy. By the way, the cappuccino was 1.4 Euro: eat your heart out Starbucks!
At the Albergo Ristorante Italia the food was good - better than average without being supreme. We did not feel like hunting for places to eat so we ate dinner and breakfast in.
Our room was clean, large and had its own little balcony upon which to observe the locals comings and goings. The bathroom was spotless and the shower worked well. The bed was not exceptional but we survived it.
We were travelling without reservations, winging it - sometimes it is better to be blessed than prepared ... this was such a time.

This is a fantastic, traditional hotel right in the centre of Varallo. The rooms are recently furnished, comfortable rather than luxurious, but all spotless - but you'll want to spend time out exploring, rather than sitting inside.

Superbly located for visiting the Sacro Monte di Varallo (via cable-car, or a nice stroll), or exploring further up the valley to Alagna, it's a great place to spend a few days. But with fantastic, welcoming service and great food (breakfast is a traditional, basic continental affair but lunch and dinner and superb), you'll probably want to stay longer.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are further from the street, but lack a balcony - so if you want to people-watch...
