It's a fairytale! It took me a lot to decide if to take the risk to travel or not. I'm glad I did take the risk! This is the first holiday when I don't check anything about the place I was going to stay, surrounding area not at all, just wanted to escape London for a bit. From far one of the most beautiful places I've ever stayed. The hotel looks like a museum, incredibly amazing, surprises didn't chased to happen, they have a pool, tennis court, soccer court so many facilities, it's crazy. The room I've stayed, stunning,the view from the balcony took my breath away. It's quite, it's beautiful, it's perfect! Hotel stuff, they couldn't do any better than this, friendly, willing to assist whenever necessary, I felt like home! I've even got an early check in 🤗.Thank you Domenico, Monica, Andrea, Manpreet and everyone else!!! For anyone looking to escape the madness from a busy city like London let's say, this is the best place to be! P.S. make sure you bring mosquitoes spray, as I've mentioned I haven't done any inquiries before coming so, mosquitoes attack wasn't fun at all. I was looking forward to have dinner in the outdoors restaurant which ended up being a nightmare, but it was entirely my fault, the hotel is located on a hill, surrendered by trees obviously you'll have to deal with mosquitoes. I highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back! Thank you🤗, Mirela

Because we were flying out of Malpensa the next day we opted for Varese over Milan for convenience, ambience and price. We also wanted to dine at the very popular Albergo Ristorante Bologna in town but didn't want to risk a noisy final night before our long-haul flight, so opted for the more secluded Palace Grand Hotel. For the same price (or less) as some tiny shirtbox in Milan you can stay at this majestic hotel, breathe some fresh mountain air, enjoy the scenery and still easily catch the Express direct to the airport. The staff were wonderful, our room overlooked the village below and the hotel lived up to its name of being grand and a palace. I was reminded of the Grand Budapest Hotel in the movie (minus Ralph Fiennes, of course). It's that sort of place, stylish and classically European, at least in the mind of these visitors from the antipodes. It is a cab ride to and from the station, obviously, but the hotel provided a shuttle to and from town for our restaurant booking. We didn't see much of Varese in such a short stay but it looked worthy of a longer look. Would I stay at the Palace Grand again? In a heartbeat - and preferably for a week, next time.

The stay in this hotel has been a positive surprise. I was expecting an old, rather decadent building, but instead of that, we enjoyed the stay in a charming, classic and yet, comfortable hotel. Building is rather well maintained and the rooms are nice and large, with beautiful bathrooms and great views. On top of that, you can enjoy an outstanding dinner at the restaurant, with very good food and excellent service. Breakfast is good as well. And all, at a very reasonable price.

The hotel is on top of a hill accessed by a long windy steep hill. If you have no car then there are some courtesy transfers to town ( about 2 km away) otherwise you will need taxi. 12-15€. Building has a grand exterior but not particularly grand and a bit frayed in places . Had executive room on fifth floors with superb view of lake. Good size room with comfy bed, fridge, hairdryer and wardrobe. Bring spare coat hangers! Part of large group so judging standard of hotel for food difficult. Buffet meal( which is not the norm here) in evening of soup, pasta, choice of 2 mains was variable but overall was quite good. Buffet breakfast taken by all guests was very crowded but very good. Wide range of pastries, rolls, fruits, meat, cheese and bacon & egg. However bit spoilt on occasions by constant long queues for the two slow drinks machines ( or only one on occasions). Wifi not fast but accessible throughout hotel. There is a small Outdoor swimming pool and grounds. Supermarket at bottom of hill or there is Carrefour beside Nord railway station. Milan and Lake Maggiore about an hour away by train. Visit Sacre Monte which can be done by bus.
