“One good night...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

Stayed here on business for one night only.

Arrived at 7pm to a relaxed welcome and several people enjoying drinks on the patio enjoying the garden and warm evening.

The room allocated to me (113) was adequate. The bed comfortable, air conditioning excellent and bathroom clean.

I didn't like only having a sheet (but blankets were in the wardrobe).

The morning experience was very good - a very good shower and excellent breakfast (including wonderfully cooked boiled eggs, which I find very unusual these days).

I didnt eat dinner here so can't comment on that but in overall terms the hotel is clean, attractive, convenient for Varese centre and very relaxing.

We visited some friends living nearby Varese and wanted to visit Milan at the same time and ended up at the Art Hotel where we booked three nights for the price of two. The Hotel is a well restored building with old and new design elements, a very large and clean room, and great shower. It was peaceful and quiet with a lovely garden where you could have breakfast in the morning and sit with your bare feet in the grass.. Unexpectionnally for Italy, we had a large breakfast table with eggs, fresh fruit salad, different types of cakes and bread .. just everything you wanted. There's a free wifi. The station of Varese is situated at a 20 min stroll through the historical city of Varese.. Just a perfect stay to feel welcome and at home. Unfortunately the restaurant is closed on Sunday, because the food looked delicious when we passed by on Saturday. If you only visit Milan, the hotel is however too far situated from Milaan. There are two trains an hour, but it takes 1h min to get to Milan Garibaldi. I heard there are however in the region of Varese a lot of shopping outlets ...

Stayed here for 2 nights in April, 2012 with my wife. The room was nice and large, the staff were helpful and the restaurant was terrific. The hotel is nicely located about a 15 minute walk from downtown Varese and has plenty of free parking. Would gladly stay here again if we get to Varese again.

I have been at this hotel once last summer and once few days ago i.e. in winter. Located in a quite large garden, which make it a peaceful spot just few steps away from the center. Rooms are spacious enough, decorated with minimalist approach with designer products. Beds are comfortable, I haven't asked, maybe they have it, but I found pillows hard, I prefer down and think it would go better with everything else they have. Breakfast is served with quality ingredients. What makes this place special for me is something else. There is a great restaurant in the building and it is so peaceful to dine in the garden in summer time, especially if you are arriving tired enough to the hotel and do not feel like going out. There is also a little bar rich with good selection of wines and liquors to accompany the cigar in the garden. Just loved it. And, in winter they have a nice fireplace in the little lobby room with comfortable leather couches just to sit, relax or work on your laptop. Personnel is very polite, they help you find whatever you need in the city, they gladly use their personal relations for you.

Room Tip: There are nicer rooms at the roof, but I felt it was a little bit more noisy. I have very light sle...

The end of October is probably not the best time to visit, as Varese is a seasonal town for tourism, and finding a restaurant open on a Sunday night was - difficult. However, the "free" room service on Saturday night made up it. Yes, "free". (as is the WiF, parking, and breakfast). They brought up a wonderful meal from the kitchen, along with a nice Italian wine. What you're paying for at this hotel is stately ambiance, and close proximity to the town square. The suites aloft (301 or 302) are good choices, but require climbing stairs. The breakfast is worth noting. It had everything you'd want or could ask, including eggs to order, included in the room. Staff is friendly, and a perfect, reasonably priced launching pad for touring the lake regions (Como, Locarno, etc.).Va Bene.

Room Tip: Suite 301 or 302 are "sought after".

This is our fourth of fifth time visiting this wonderful establishment. The location is perfect for seeing the magnificent area, including the lake region. The hotel is really beautiful, but it is the staff that makes this experience truly special. As others have noted, the breakfast is really exceptional. You couldn't ask for a better hotel experience, whether it is for a long or short stay.
