We stayed here for 2 nights on our train trip round Switzerland. The hotel is located across the road from the lake about 10 minutes from the station, with beautiful views. We had an apartment with a bedroom and a living area with kitchenette. Very comfy beds and lovely balcony. Good aircon. Good breakfast buffet which we ate on the... 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?

I did a last minute booking for a short family getaway. We are 2 adults & 2 small kids. When I booked there was only available a superior double room but it said 30-40sqm. Well... 1. The hotel has an extra star rating. No way it is a 4 stars. Think more about a tight 3 stars. 2. No child-friendly.... More

High expectations on reserving a spacious room with a balcony by lakeshore (booking.com); big disappointment receiving the room in the 1st floor with view on the construction site opposite to the lake. The hotel fully booked and no possibility to change, but at least the staff made a serious and friendly attempt, thanks to them for all that kindness. Good... More
