“Excellent hotel, friendly staff, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We stayed at the Pironi for a week, and had an excellent experience. From the first friendly welcome at reception, to the last, it could not be faulted.

The hotel is a very short walk from the lake side, with a good variety of restaurants, bars and coffee stops.

We had a choice of two rooms, and selected one with a (albeit limited) view of the lake.

There's also secure parking nearby, so ignore the satnav which will (depending on the time of day) take you to the road alongside the lake which is only open briefly in the early morning. Instead park in the public car park, further down the lake side, check in, then drive back to the secure car park. It's down a very narrow road, so quite easy to miss, but the hotel provided a helpful map.

We felt so refreshed in the Pironi, wonderful layout and service, we were close to the action but removed from the raucous, so we thoroughly enjoyed the region. We would recommend it for the romance factor and kindness of all

There is nothing but praise for this lovely characterful hotel. Cannobio is a great spot with a long promenade of cafés - the hotel is just off that but rooms including ours (10) have lake views. Clean, comfortable, large room with friendly staff and a classy ambience that relaxed us from the start. Very highly recommended

An amazing building, beautifully converted to a hotel, with lots of space and rooms for sitting out and relaxing. Our room was lovely, on two levels with a balcony looking out over the rooftops. Antique furniture and a good bathroom.

Breakfast was comprehensive and served in a room covered in frescoes. Full marks also for free coffee and tea in the sitting room.

The staff were excellent and very helpful and there are good suggestions in each room for local food and drink, walks and other activities.

The hotel is right in the centre of town, very lively and a few seconds walk from the lake shore. Arriving by car is a challenge but the staff were very good in guiding us in, then drove with us to the secure car park (actually very close by).

We really enjoyed the hotel, its quirky style and the buzziness around it and will certainly use it again if we are in the area.

Really nice hotel and very different from the usual. Strongly recommend this as a place to stay in north lake Maggiore. Very unusual beautiful rooms. Breakfast was very nicely done in a super room. The hotel also has a very nice lounge with good facilities and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful

Room Tip: ask for the room with the 'Loggia'

Very good hotel, excellent friendly staff.The old building has been renovated to a high standard without loosing its sixteen century charm. We had a room with a small balcony that you could see the lake over the rooftops(room3)? Cannobio is a charming little town with many good restaurants.

We stayed at the Pironi for 3 nights having just got back in the last couple of days and had a great time.

It's a great little hotel and really added to our enjoyment of being in Cannobio. The hotel itself is just a short walk from where we arrived via ferry and the building oozes charm and character.

Our room was lovely - clean, simple, decorated in keeping with the nature of the building but with everything we needed for our stay and also nice and quiet for a good night's sleep.

The staff at the hotel were really friendly and helpful both in terms of the reception and the lady who helps out at breakfast and breakfast itself is a decent buffet served in a really great little room downstairs.

We also ate in the bar/restaurant under the Pironi which was served up a reasonable pizza although there are better to be had around Cannobio as we later found out but it's a buzzing little place again with friendly staff, decent food and good service.

All-in-all I'd recommend the Pironi to anyone looking to stay in Cannobio and I'd recommend Cannobio to anyone looking to stay around Lake Maggiore and I'd recommend Lake Maggiore to anyone who likes lakes and scenery :-)

We loved it.
