This is a pretty hotel just off the main square. We chose it because it was one of the few we could afford in the area so we did not have high expectations. We were welcomed by the friendly owners and found everything we needed in our room. Yes it was small and basic - could do with a coat of paint but, our bed was clean and comfortable and we were provided with clean towels each day. Rooms 25 and 26 have a small balcony with room for table and chairs and from here we enjoyed a lovely view of the lake over to Bellagio. We paid for breakfast which consisted of coffee with bread and a selection of jams - by day no 7 we were ready for something different! There was the smell of cooking fat in the entrance lobby but nowhere else.
I would recommend this hotel for its location , good value and the friendly owners. It is not luxury but we enjoyed our stay here.
