“To be recommended because of lovely host”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This hotel is only a few hundred meters from the city centre of Arona (which is a nice little town at Lake Maggiore), therefore awesome when you want to explore the area around Lake Maggiore and enjoy some city nightlife.
We booked a double room but were offered a family room instead for the same price, which was really comfy.
The host was really nice, he made a special homemade fruit bowl for breakfast. And was always in for a little chat.

We chose to stay in Arona for our tour of Lake Maggiore. I found the hotel online. It is an older hotel that has been renovated. The room for 2 was huge and spotless clean. Parking was protected. Our issue is that the toilet was very high (our feet did not touch the ground (we are 1.62m. and 1.75) and the sink was extremely low. But again bathrobes and slippers. Shutter were closed because of the street and restaurant noise. Restaurant below was pretty calm though when we went to bed. The hotel is on the main road to the city's center. It is quite close from the town. Breakfast was continental with Italian croissants made by on the spot.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

we (couple, 28/31) booked the hotel at the last minute. Even though we booked a double room, we were given a Family room. Room was therefore very big and most important: very clean and also modern. There is no view and shutters were closed due to the warm weather.
Location is spot on, maybe 300 meters to town and 200 meters to the Lido where you are able to swim for free. Here I would like to add that all the "nice" hotels in the City Center are not ideally located in case you want to go swimming. There is a small Harbour and no place to sunbath or easy Access to the water. Therefore I preferred the Location of Michelangelo.
Breakfast is typical Italian, you get to choose a hot beverage and they will bring you a glass of jucie, plus sweet Croissants and Donuts. There are no meats or eggs available. For us, no Problem and we enjoyed the Italien way. Breakfast might get boring after more than 2, 3 days.
I would recommend it for a few days, maybe not for a longer stay. Value for Money is amazing!!

Summary:

+ 75 Euro a night - fantastic
+ super clean
+ nice staff
+ good Location
+ recommended for 2, 3 nights
+ only 6 rooms

- no view (you would have to get a Hotel in the Center)
- breakfast is fun for a night or 2, but then might get boring
