We booked a superior double room at the end of July, beginning of August. Check-in was friendly and helpful, even though we were about one hour early. The room itself was very big with two large single beds making a double and space for a sofa / lounge area too. There was also a large balcony overlooking a quiet road... More

Overlooking Lake Maggiore, close to the grand plaza, train station, the funicular to Chiesa Madonna, water taxis and geocaches. Good pool for the kids, convenient restaurant on the first floor and excellent service. What else could one ask for?
