My husband and I stayed at Hotel Ristorante San Carlo while he was on business. The staff here is incredibly hospitable and very attentive! This hotel is absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend. The breakfast included is amazing, best enjoyed by the gorgeous view overlooking Lago Maggiore....the cappuccino and espresso is delicious! Evening dinners are superb. We stayed for seven days...

Our travelling companions booked two rooms on the statue side of the hotel. After a few issues getting our cars into the small parking area we spotted the view from the restaurant and terrace and immediately booked for dinner that night. Our rooms were modern and clean as was the bathroom. The only issue was that the water took an... More

The good: amazing dinners and lunches. Warm friendly staff, nice views, decent value for money. The "not so good": small rooms, like warm shower water that never gers hot. Quite loud and nor well insulated against road and dining room noise. Breakfast a bit of let down after the amazing dinners we had

Dear guest , we are pleased that you enjoyed our restaurant. As for the noise that comes from the road we are providing to find a solution. We will try to improve the breakfast buffet as we have suggested. We hope to see you soon. Best regards More

We stayed in a lake-view room, and the view is worth it! Very nice hotel: amazing location, modern facilities, decorated with taste, very friendly staff, good breakfast, good quality for price. Only small defects: rooms not very clean and soundproof, bed not extremely comfortable, restaurant can get crowded and noisy some nights.

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
