The view from the rooms together with the kindness of the personnel are the only good things of this hotel/Restaurant. We have been here one night, having Dinner and breakfast. The Restaurant serves very little portions for very large prices. Breakfast Buffet has very little choice, even though good quality. Rooms don't have the same standard, even though the same... More

We spent 3 nights with Hotel Ristorante San Carlo in early October. This is a small, family run hotel that provides exceptional service in one of the nicest venues in Italy. Our room was nicely decorated and very modern with a beautiful view of Lago Maggiore. We had no issues with parking; when the lot was full a hotel staff... More

The Hotel Ristorante San Carlo is located on a slope, just above the town of Arona, on Lake Maggiore. Down below is the lake and the town, up above is the giant statue of San Carlo which attracts coach loads of tourists. We were unfortunate to have a room overlooking the road (and a very busy one it was), and... More

It was our first stay at this hotel with a fabulous location on Lake Maggiore. Our room had the tiniest balcony, but it was enough for two! The picture window gave a beautiful view of the lake. The room was well appointed, comfortable and quiet; the staff were really kind. We enjoyed lunch and dinner during our stay, and it... More

My husband and I stayed one night here on our way driving from Germany to France. It was a great break for us. The hotel is located on a quiet section of Lago Maggiore, and the surrounding areas were sleepy and gorgeous. You can't walk to the beach from this hotel, but it's a short drive down the hill. Our...

My boyfriend and I came to eat at lunch at San Carlo Hotel. We were welcomed by the manager who was very kind and brought us at our table. The food was excellent, the view wonderful and the staff very lovely and fast. We will certainly come again.

Check in was 1 pm & we got there about 1:30 only we couldn't park because the parking lot holds about 10 cars & there is no place to park. My husband dropped me off to find out what to do but the receptionist totally ignored me & just kept attending to people ordering cappuccinos. When she finally addressed me,... More
