Stayed at this hotel as overnight stopover during our trip from Switzerland to Milan. And to tell the truth, this hotel has nothing to be excited about. While during better weather, it might be nice to spend some time walking outside in the large hotel park, but during our stay it was raining heavily, leaving us trapped in the hotel. And believe us, it is very, very sad to be in the hotel for a whole day - there's basically zero things you can do. Maybe due to hotel being mostly empty during our stay, but staff was terribly slow as well (but they did their best trying to be useful): for example, we went to restaurant and ordered some light dinner (pasta and gnocchi) - it took almost an hour to get our food served.
Rooms were also rather mediocre and showing signs of aging, common hotel areas looked used as well.
In overall - I think this hotel barely makes it to 4 star rating, would not recommend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Villa Porro Pirelli is strategically located 5 km from Varese, and 30 Km from Malpensa, between Lake Varese and Lake Maggiore. This noble mansion built in the XVIII century, is nowdays an exclusive 4 star hotel immersed in a manicured Italian garden and surrounded by a beautiful park with an outdoor pool available to guests during the summer season. The 64 spacious rooms are characterized by antique Asian furniture, which transmit the passion for the Far East that had the Conte Porro, the ancient owner of the villa. Inside, the elegant spaces reflect the original splendor of the villa and offer a privileged setting for meetings, private events and weddings. On the Villa’s premises there is also a small Church. A special mention goes to the hotel’s culinary offer, led by the Michelin starred Chef Emanuele Mazzella, who delights it guests with refined dishes served at the Bistro’ Porro Pirelli, in the ancient eighteenth-century greenhouse in the park, and the new Gourmet Restaurant opening soon. ... more less
