It was an arduous trip getting to Aruna, what w/ a train snafu in Milan. Chose Michelangelo because of its good Booking.com review scores but was pleased to have two old fellows know to point us to the RIGHT as you depart the station (most hotels are on the left); from there it was a pleasant & pretty stroll.
Our host, Roberto, met us with genuine pleasure & delight. He is a former cruise chef and his love of life, travel, people, & food shows in his pleasant and well-kept hotel. Rooms have slippers & bathrobes, the first we've experienced in this past month (at the price-level we travel),
We'd written that we'd wait to book Friday night depending on how we liked the hotel and again, breakfast chased all thoughts of moving on to Stressa from either of our heads. DON'T FILL UP ON INITIAL COOKIES/JAM; save your appetite for the BEST croissants either of us have ever tasted! Each has fruit jam, chocolate, or cream inside and they are SCRUMMY! There is yoghurt & ham cheese toasties for those wanting more'substance'.
The weather was 'iffy' until the morning we left, so it was wonderful to have such a pleasant room with great internet connection to return to and get much needed photo down-loading & correspondence done.
Arona is a darling place and were we to return, we'd look no further than Michelangelo for our next stay, thanks to 'Roberto' (who sent us off to our early train with two final croissants; THANK YOU!)
