“Surprise near Milan”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We stayed at Fortezza Viscontea for a wedding that was going to be at this hotel and we thought it would be easier than staying in Milan....this was a great decision.

Fortezza Viscontea is a castle in a small city, recently renovated and with very nice rooms.

We were welcomed by Richard, the hotel manager who had done everything to help us felling comfortable.

The hotel is impressive, rooms spacious, great design and good job maintaining the original set up.

Inside the castle there is a small restaurant, run by a family and serving real italian cuisine. During the weekdays, you can enjoy a 3 course menu for 10 euros!

We loved it!

We stayed here 1 night in August and found hotel extremly romantic and perfect in everything. Cozy rooms, friendly Reception staff, good breakfast and very unusual place.
I would recommend this hotel for 1 or 2 nights stay not more, cause there is nothing to do around. It could be also great for wedding or parties it has a lot of huge halls and I do believe they can offer such services. We used hotel to stay for 1 night when travelling to lago di Garda and I was very happy that I made this choice.

In european term this is an amazing hotel. To dare renovating a 9th century castle with a nasty history into a modern hotel and make it look great is a feast in itself. It is not perfect. The worst probably for us was the fact that apart from the obvious wedding setting, there was noone there and we had to go to the boring local town for entertainment. The town around is so uninteresting and dull and has to improve hugely to be worthy of the potential international tourists the castle brings. They need to keep up with its castle history and make most of it, even if they disagree with it. The hotel is a genuine modern masterpiece in decoration. I particularly loved the lifts with a most unusual representation of ancient owners set into modern walls . also the frescoes , the large vaulted rooms, the breakfast and dinning spaces being a combination between middle ages and 21st century spaces are an artistic vision not yet seen anywhere else. The rooms are comfortable and modern although may be a bit of European tight dimension. However this castle is worthy of an experience and especially a romantic one.

On our way back home to Croatia we spend one night in this surreal place. It was a real pleasure to be there, to explore the history of this medieval fortress converted to a high class hotel. All recommendations for this place... although not much to see in the surrounding, it is a perfect place to stay for a few days and relax in this magnificent historical place. I can only highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Bad acoustic isolation... please pay attention on that!
