We stayed here a week ago for one night before our flight home; great location 30 minutes from MXP, nice walk around lake area, modern hotel with small terraces open to view of lake (ask for lakeview room), good bathroom and amenities. Surprisingly modern enery-saving technology in the rooms. For the room, prices are fair and we were allowed to check out a bit late to accommodate our flight plans. But, we had dinner here and it was not what we'd expected. The food, while reasonably priced, was a poor imitation of what we'd been eating in Piemonte for a week. The dining room was much too brightly lit, with no ambience. The restaurant has lovely floor to ceiling doors that open to views of the lake, but they were closed despite the mild evening so all we could see was our reflection in the glass. We felt like we were dining at McDonald's and cannot recommend the restaurant.
The breakfast buffet was OK with a decent selection; croissants, cereal, fruit, yogurt, cereal bars, and some cold meats.
There is a computer in the lobby available to guests at cost of 1 Euro/30 minutes.
This hotel is modern and a pleasant enough place to stay for convenience to MXP, but find a restaurant in Varese instead of dining at the hotel.
