Not up to my 5 star experience which includes comfort, hospitality and style. To start; doorman not available when we arrived at 10:00 pm on Friday. Had to corral front desk clerk by ringing a bell. Once front desk clerk arrived she summoned the bellman. Perhaps not that big a thing, but we were traveling for 3 weeks and had... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in September and the hotel was beautiful, the staff were friendly, amazing food and an amazing view of the lake. The only downfall was that our side lake view room was extremely small and we had to leave our suitcases outside on the terrace else there was no room to walk around the bed.... More

We stayed for 3 nights for my mom's birthday this weekend. I chose the hotel randomly, and could not be happier! First, it's even more cute, adorable, fun and beautiful than on the pictures!

This is a very swanky Hotel, typical OTT Italian style with lots of marble and gold, doesn’t suit everyone’s taste. The Hotel offers great views of the lake and very friendly and helpful staff.

We spent 5 wonderful nights at Villa Aminta. The location of this hotel immediately opposite the Borromean Islands is unique. From your room and from the the restaurant you have a close up and clear view of Islo Bella and Isola dei Pescatori with Islo Madre in the distance between these islands. It's a truly stunning view.
