“Tired”
Reviewed April 6, 2011

I have to agree with other reviewers who have commented on the tired and shabby decor of this supposedly 4star hotel. I had a single room on the fifth floor, reached by a VERY slow lift. There were only 3 coathangers , the TV was on top of the wardrobe and impossible to watch, and the balcony faced a massive cliff.

The food was interesting - a buffet with masses of choice but I wold have preferred fewer dishes cooked with more care. The coffee at breakfast was put on the tables in open jugs, so it was always luke-warm. However the desserts were amazing!

I liked the location, right by the lake and found the walk to the town easy. It's a pity there was nowhere to sit outside to enjoy the beautiful views.

Stayed March 2011

Hotel Concorde was chosen for a Business meeting. Decor was a little tired but the location was superb. 50 minute drive from Milan Malpensa Airport and just on the edge of Arona the hotel sits in a prime position on Lake Maggiore.

I have to say the meal in the restaurant was the best I have ever enjoyed in Italy. The food was superb and the head waiter quite a character whilst still remaining propfessional.

Excelllent!

Excellent location, but hotel generally very tired and in need of upgrading and refurbishment of bedrooms and public areas. Definitely NOT 4 * perhaps 2 at most.
Rooms at front have magnificent views but are on a very noisy road, while those at back look on to a high cliff. Bedrooms very tired - room safe not working, air conditioning likewise, poor decor, insufficient wardrobe space. Food reasonable but unimaginative although staff generally very helpful, lounge space limited, especially if a "party" is in residence.

There was a fabulous lake view - if you were standing up on your tiny balcony ! Very noisy as busy main road directly infront of hotel. The service and food was good. Bedrooms were small and decor dated. It was rated 4 star - we disagree! When we arrived the air conditioning was not working in our room and it was very hot indeed. It was fixed on day 2. Very narrow, inlit path into town which was a bit scary at night. Good taxi service into Arona organised by hotel. Pool had exercise bikes in it and was a bit murky. Hotel said it was regularly maintained ? Fire alarm went off one night and we spent an hour outside wondering what was going on as no one told us. Many of residents were still in bed. Luckily it was a false alarm. Prepare to be disappointed in the hotel- sorry we were.

Expensive when compared to similar kind of hotels in other countries. Nice view in some of the rooms. Building is old but clean.

I stayed three weeks in this hotel. It was a business trip. My family also visited me for three nights. We all liked the place very much. Most of the time I stayed in double room and when my family was with me, we stayed in a family room or in a suite if I could say. The service in the hotel was great! The staff was great and very helpful! I hope we can get back there some day! Arona is Beautiful place.

Thank You for great service!

Yours,

Traveller from Finland

Although on a main road with lots of traffic making for a wary walk into Arona, this hotel is excellent. The bedrooms are small but the bed was large and we had a bath and a shower, also a balcony. The staff were friendly and helpful and the evening meal was a true Italian experience. Although with a tour party there were two choices of starter and main course and probably 10 puddings plus fresh fruit. There was plenty of salad and hot vegetables. The breakfast was English/continental with fruit juice (6 choices), cereal (6 choices), boiled eggs, bacon, sausage and scrambled egg plus cold meats and cheeses, croissants, rolls, blackbread, biscuits and cake and fresh fruit and yogurt.. There is an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam cabinet, a fully equiped gym with table tennis and table soccer. There is outdoor seating and a garden loggia area which is slightly spoiled by the noise of the traffic but the view over the lake and surrounding scenery makes it all worthwhile.
