“Traditional villa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

In the heart of varese his traditional villa offers an exellent stay!!big rooms,yummy breakfast,nice people.try the dinner!
It was propably an old house,fully refurbished with a great garden where you can relax and enjoy your breakfast , your dinner or a glass of wine.
The rooms are minimal and very big,the bed has a comfortable matress and the bathroom is also big.
For breakfast you choose between eggs,fresh breads,sweets, cappuccino.
Varese is a great spot to stay if tou want to visit the lakes or milan.

In a lovely setting this compact hotel has a lot to offer.

Really helpful staff and a great location (perfect for a quick walk into Varese) helps with the ambience. Its a rustic setting, but then for some reason your room has a lot of clear plastic in it ! Example:- a clear plastic seat to sit on... clear plastic (bright lights) to see your way by. All a bit incongruous to the style.

This is carried over to the breakfast and dinner areas... nice setting but seemingly cheap seats.
Wierd !

On the first floor, some of the rooms I've stayed in have a partially glazed floor allowing you to see a part of what was an ancient house (?). This time, I stayed in 201 which has view over a derelict building site - not impressive. The road outside is noisy and even late at nights you hear police sirens etc.

However, in the round the place is great and relaxed. The breakfast is however a little below par for a hotel like this. Sure, most of it's there, but the selection isn't the best I have experienced.

Summary
Nice people
Nice place
Nice Experience

Just needs a little more work to make it Excellent !

Room Tip: Rooms at the front can be noisy... also, the internet was very very intermittent (no wireless in roo...

Stayed here for the Jubilee weekend (June 2012) and enjoyed warmth and sunshine whilst it poured with rain for the Queen back in London on her Jubilee River cruise !

We drove down from the UK and the Hotel was easy to find with ample parking a short walk from the door. The town centre is a pleasant 10 minute walk down the road where there are lots of other restaurants to chose from.

Lovely hotel. We had a huge attic room on the top floor with it's own kitchen. The pitched roof was awkward in places , especially for someone tall e.g. the shower, but the bed was huge and extremey comfortable.

We had a fantastic meal here on oiur first night , sat outside. we opted for the full 4 course Italian which was hard work as the portions were huge but everything delicious so we managed !

My only complaint would be the uncomfortable metal chairs outside on the terrace and plastic chairs in the breakfast dining room.
Breakfast had a good selection of choices too.

Would definitely stay here again if we return to Varese.

We travel to varese regularly for weekends in northern Italy. Varese is an authentic little city with a long industrial history. This makes it a place where you can truly experience the heart of northern Italy. Art hotel captures this past and it's high end presence with all its nice amenities.

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.
