“A classic Italian Villa”
Reviewed November 19, 2006

Hard to find, but definately worth the effort, this former nobleman's chateau built in the 17th century is set on a hill in a park like estate.
Well located to explore the Swiss and Italian Alps, the Lake District, Milano and Turino, this first class establishment offered us first class service and the finest meal we had during our two week stay in Italy.
The staff were friendly and very helpful, even letting me check my email on their computer.
The rooms were classy and high tech. When we had a small problem with sink drainage, we were upgraded to a suite with an apology. (Of course this was the off season, and the hotel was almost empty).
The most amazing thing was that our room, which sold for over $200 in season, cost us a meager 80 Euro due to a Fall Special, with free parking! We booked direct through the Boscoloweb site at [-]. All staff spoke good to passable English.
Travellers should know that the place is almost impossible to find, so get good directions prior to leaving. Also, the full breakfast at E10 extra was only so-so.

Stayed one night in this excellent 4Star hotel during Aug 2006. Got a cheap deal for one night accommodation for this hotel. It is difficult to find tho, situated off Varese city in Induno Olona. This is a villa type, with very nice reception area, garden and restaurants. All beautifully decorated. The hotel staff are excellent and friendly. Introduced good restaurants around the area to us and also helped us with our way around. The room was perfect and very comfy set-up with king size bed. The bathroom was 4star like. I didnt like the cubicle shower tho, but it was alright. Breakfast was excellent and comes with the package. Overall, recommended to everyone going around Varese or Como for holidays and with a car. The bad side about this hotel is its location. Not in the central, so difficult to get around. But everything else is perfect and excellent. Thumbs up!!!!

When we booked our room we knew we were staying at an Italian villa, but Porro Pirelli exceeded our expectations! The gardens were beautiful - there was even a little chapel! Our room wasn't huge, but uniquiely decorated with a view of the gardens. The staff was very professional and took the time to explain the villa's history to us. We had a wonderful formal dinner in a a dinning room overlooking the gardens. In comparison to the other hotels where we stayed in Italy, this hotel was well worth the $143.00 we paid. The only negatives were that it was very difficult to find and we were suprised with a $16 fee to use the internet.
