Arrived in Varese, on a very untypical stormy afternoon, umbrellas to the ready...what a brilliant find Republic Di Oz was, greeted by Dante, and shown our room, clean and very functional, if not a little on the excentric but when in Rome! It was an absolute find, we had a fabulous time in Italy, the people were welcoming, and very... More

We were welcomed by the owner. It is difficult to find and you have to be careful parking as you have to negotiate a narrow gateway to get into courtyard. But it is so worth it. We were welcomed and shown our room. We were offered a choice . The rooms are fabulous. very eccentric. The owner collects antiques and... More

This is not a real hotel. Actually it is a museum grown out of a hobby. For those looking for elevators, large parking garages and a reception desk with attendants 24 hours a day, please try another place. Then this one is not for you. The building is old and partially renovated, and slowly moves forward when there is time... More

Nice and interesting hotel. I was in the Sherlock room with was good. The only remark is parking... You have to drive in with side mirrors folded because of really narrow entrance - so on big wide cars it is a challenge. Hospitality is on good level, so would definitely recommend the hotel.

This B & B will captivate you and impress you both initially and leave that lasting impression that only comes around once in a long while. What ever did happen to that feeling of satisfaction, happiness, content, intrigue, and a long lasting good memory that is supposed to come when we travel abroad?? Well, Mr. Dante and his lovely wife... More

I occasionally travel to Varese for business, and this was my discovery of the trip. This Bed and Breakfast is tucked into a courtyard in the center of Varese's old town walking district, and it's wonderfully quirky and cozy. Each of the 4 rooms has a different theme, but all are filled with unique decor and are well appointed. The... More

Exactly in the center of Varese, park your car and forget it, everything at walking distance, wine bars, restaurants, Italian coffee bar, shops. Rooms are large, colorful and beautifully decorated. Old books, an ancient painting, an Andy Warhol carpet, lot of original antiques. A unique place. Wonderful stay.

We stayed here just for one night in the Golden Room; it's located right in the middle of the pedestrian area. You can still drive in if you have the car and they have a little car park in front as well. The rooms are all decorated with different themes and with antiques & items collected by Dante during his... More

We stayed at the Opera room for one night. As an opera fan I was thrilled to see the decoration: a Maria Callas dress in frames on the wall, wow! The hotel is right in the old town of Varese, all the attractions very close. Very friendly and helpful staff. I recommend warmly this hotel.

We spend a few night in Varese to visit family and ended up in Repubblica di Oz. The rooms are as nice as in the pictures. Each room is designed with antiques and unique items which gives the room a wonderful atmosphere. The rooms are spacious, clean and the free wifi works as it should. The building is in the... More
