Hotel Concorde
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Arona
Reviewed June 29, 2011

Wary after reading previous mixed reviews but we found the hotel excellent. We had a lovely room with a balcony and view of the lake, worth the extra. Buffet breakfast and the evening meals were very good, liked the option of boiling my own eggs for breakfast. The decor etc reflect the era when the hotel was built probably the eighties. It is not shabby as some previous posts wold have you believe w found it clean and in good order. Our only quibble would be that the lifts are very slow and could do with updating.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a view of the lake

I know this hotel has mixed reviews but my wife and I found it very good. We had a lakeview bedroom with awsome views over Lake Maggiore.We stayed two nights and the buffet meals were varied and plentiful. Alert and friendly dining room staff.The bar staff perhaps could have been better. The views from the lounge are superb.Our bedroom was clean, nice bed , adequate shower and sat.tv.
We tried the indoor pool which was excellent, down at the back of the hotel. The walk into Arona is a bit scary for the first few minutes but once across the zebra and Arona opens up with a ten minute stroll to the lovely promonade, shops , station etc. .
A decent base to explore the area

Room Tip: ask for a lakeview room. Classic views

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.

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.
