This was a hidden gem in our trip to Italy. We knew the lake views were gorgeous when we booked our stay but had no idea of all the other wonderul things this hotel had to offer. The hotel is run by a very friendly married couple and their staff. Everyone was very helpful and gracious. We were able to... More

Found this place by accident but really happy to stay there. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and had a beautiful view to the lake. Breakfast was really nice, with lots of options.

This is a nice peaceful village to stay in and the hotel has rooms with a lovely lake view. There is a ferry stop right across the street which we used several times. This was the only hotel during our 10 day road trip that had a king bed...Yay! It is true that this particular area is not very busy,... More

Situated a few yards from Urio's tiny pier it is an ideal base for using the Lake's regular ferry service, by far the best way of getting around. It is run by a very friendly and helpful husband and wife team and all other staff were really great as well. Breakfast was served on a help yourself basis and offered... More

The location is good as you have a boat stop right in front of the hotel. However, the hotel is not located in a walking neighborhood. The road is very narrow and there are no sidewalks. The choice of restaurants near the hotel is very limited, though the food in hotel is quite good.

Hotel was just what we needed, small, friendly staff and with a small bar over looking the lake. Very convenient as the peer for visiting the lake is just in front although we chose to drive to see what we wanted to.

The hotel was just what we had hoped - small, traditional architecture, very friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic lakeside location (western shore) with ferry stop out the front and small outdoor bar overlooking the water. Fine dining waterfront restaurant just across the road. Room was very comfortable with all mod-cons including aircon which really helped as it as warm &... More

Shabby Chic hotel, friendly staff, food ok. But what a location! Views out over the lake, boat terminal across the narrow road. Room are very clean, TV too small and no way to cast Netflix to it, as there are no English channels. Only 6 parking spaces so pre-booking parking is a must. Over all a pleasent place to stay,...

This is a family run hotel and very friendly. The decor is a little bit old fashioned but it's extremely clean and well cared for. Other half was too mean to stump up the extra € for a lake view but our room over the restaurant had an oblique one. There was air con and a TV in the room... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
L'albergo lo scoprite dopo infinite curve dagli scorci sempre diversi ed emozionanti, arrivate accostando comodamente l’auto sul piazzale di fronte e scendendo vi accorgete dell’incantevole posizione di questo piccolo albergo che si specchia orgogliosamente nel lago ed è avvolto dal rassicurante abbraccio delle montagne. Se arrivate di mattina il colore predominante è azzurro dalle sfumature d’oro, il tramonto invece è rosa.Ad accogliervi troverete sempre noi e sempre un sorriso e dopo un celere check in potrete andare direttamente in camera o rilassarvi un attimo nel nostro bar o nel nostro salottino sbirciando attraverso le vetrate l’animata quotidianità che si svolge al di fuori. Dicono che non ci sia panorama più affascinante del lago visto dal lago e per i nostri clienti più curiosi l’imbarco della navigazione proprio di fronte l’albergo sarà un’ irrinunciabile comodità per una gita in battello. ... more   less
