“Lakeside Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It sits right on the lakeside. Breakfast outside is lovely with a view of the Borromean Islands The hotel is full of character and family run. Our room overlooked the garden and out to the lake. A short stroll takes you into Baveno where you can catch the ferry to Islola Madre, Isola Pescatori and Isola Bella to name but a few of many other places to visit

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the lake

This is a smaller older hotel filled with charm and decorated with eclectic antiques. Our room looked out over a pleasant yard with gazebo and patio furniture on the shore of the lake towards the Borromean Islands. The view surpassed the large lake front hotels in Stresa and the hotel was the fraction of cost of those Victorian hotels. La Ripa was a short walk along the shore and promonade to the center of Baveno, a quiet village where one can catch the ferry to the Borromean Islands and Stresa. Breakfast was superb with a mix of Italian Continental and cooked to order food...including chilled Prosecco on ice with the various juices.The only downside was that the private parking across the road from the hotel was on a curve which had a short sight line....nervous crossing the road to and from parking.

Room Tip: Lake view room.

We spent 4 nights at La Ripa with our children aged 2 and 5. The location, right on the lake and a couple of minutes walk to the centre of Baveno, is perfect. Food in the restaurant was very good. Staff were very helpful and looked after our children very well.

this hotel is an absolute gem..unparalleled location,beautiful rooms (try and get one of the
three with either a Juliette balcony or full balcony) and a wonderful breakfast is served on
the terrace on the shores of the lake..we also had a great evening meal in their restaurant
again on a terrace overlooking the lake followed by very nice house wine sitting by the lake.
The owner is wonderful and all the staff SO helpful...Would we return YOU BET

We have been coming her for years and the hotel is absolutely fantastic if you like real character in stead of a 'run off the mill' hotel.
Breakfast and diner are served in the garden which offers stupendous views of the Lake Maggiore with its's beautiful Borromeo Islands.
Rooms have been redone recently and the hotel now offers en suite bathrooms to most rooms. Staff is very friendly and they do their best to suit your every needs. English is spoken, as is French and a little German. It is a small hotel and location is right next to a busy road so noice can be an issue in some rooms. But if you ask for a room overlooking the garden/Lake you'll be fine. We surely recommend it if you are the kind of laid back traveller who appreciates authenticity.

Room Tip: ask for a 'quiet' room!

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at La Ripa, Wonderful location on the lake shore. We had corner rooms on the first & second floors. The terrace was a lovely setting for meals. We ate at the hotel twice and the food was good. Paola & the staff were very helpful & Alina was a lovely young woman who was always so cheerful and looked after us so well. Highly recommended.

The hotel has only about 10 rooms. We stayed in a one with a lake view. The room was renovated, clean and nicely decorated. I believe no room is the same but all look very charming. The service was excellent if not perfect. I definitely recommend it!
