In it's day was probably a very classy hotel but time take a toll, needs a bit of TLC in places but still very good. Rooms were large with decent beds and a large bathroom, shower worked but was a bit small. Second night of a motorcycle tour with good parking and decent bar prices. Group meal was OK with a good breakfast.

OK the palace is a outside of town on the hill, free taxi service into Varese . Perhaps dated but a charming example of a former luxury hotel The staff were the best, customer service was above and beyond . Claudia on reception was amazingly helpful as we lost a passport in Milan Domi at the bar became a friend taking us to the police station in his own time . All the staff were friendly and made us welcome . Breakfast was an event to savior apart from only having a single coffee machine. Ate the once in the restaurant good high end cuisine .

Location is excellent with free courtesy car into Varese centre. Rooms clean and well kept up. Restaurant excellent. Breakfast excellent choice. Building, grounds and views stunning ! Was purpose built as an hotel in 1913 and remains very grand. Staff (a most important aspect of any hotel stay) always smiling and helpful. I had mislaid my passport in Milan and two staff, Claudia and Domenico went way beyond what one would normally experience in trying to resolve the difficulty. As a Brit with just a few words of Italian this was very much appreciated. We found the hotel location ideal for motorbiking around lakes/mountains/Switzerland/Lombardy.

Palace grand hotel is located on a very beautiful hill surrounded be trees, with a great view to Varese lake and only a 5 mins drive away from the center. The building is very beautiful and you receive a nice vibe by reaching the reception. The main hall, the restaurant and the public areas have a great touch of the past that makes you think that you are actually in a palace! The food they offer is very nice and I have to say that the stuff was very kind and helpful. However I wasn’t so impressed by my room. Although it was pretty big and it has a great view, I didn’t really like the fact that they still have this old fashioned thick carpet and also and most importantly i would say the room was not as clean as it should have been. You could easily notice dirt in the walls etc. however I spent my last night in a different room on another floor which was recently renovated and it was REALLY nice. I wish this was my room since the beginning :)

Old hotel with style, however.. deteriorating. Big rooms, not very clean. I spotted one of the hotel personell spraying some kind of insecticide on the carpet in the hallways (it also smelled like that). When he saw me, he quickly hid the can. Food is below average (breakfast & lunch for two days), bar is nice. Walked for a phone call out of the front door walking towards the empty pool, stepped in dog sh@t. All in all, great location, great potential but will not come back.
