Thanks to some good reviews on tripadvisor, we learned of Hotel Visconti. We were in between two countries and needed to put our son on a flight at Malpensa airport. We decided that an overnight at a hotel near the airport would make the most sense for getting him to his morning flight. I am SO happy we chose Hotel Visconti. It was perfect.
We arrived by train from Switzerland. The owners, Cecelia and Simone, picked up our family of 5 in their two vehicles, for the short drive to their hotel. The hotel is a 2 story building next door to their home. The surroundings are a quiet residential area. The rooms are well insulated and surprisingly, we heard no planes when in the room. I believe there were 4 rooms on each of the two floors. The lobby, breakfast buffet, and bar are on the ground level. Everything looks to be very new.
The rooms are modern, simple, and spotlessly clean. Very comfortable beds! Functional, attractive dark wood furniture. The bathrooms have cool floors- looks like cement that has been painted a vivid color, like yellow/orange, and then splashed with metallic paint, then coated in polyurethane. I loved the look and would try this at home! Good sized sink area and a nice, strong shower with an adjustable height head. Thick, soft towels. The rooms come with shampoo, but no conditioner. There is a hairdryer on the wall.
The breakfast is very nice. There are cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, and a good variety of pastries. Cecelia makes coffee per your preference. The espresso was yummy.
She also made us some reservations for a great restaurant in the neighborhood- Il Buccaniere. It's about a 10 min walk through the nice, quiet streets. Cecelia provided us with an easy map to follow. We really enjoyed this restaurant. The food was fantastic and extremely reasonably priced. It is purely a "locals" place.
After spending a few nights in Varenna/Lake Como, we ended up back in Milan before our flight home out of Malpensa. We again stayed at Hotel Visconti. We were welcomed back like old friends and again we had a perfect stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone flying in/out of Malpensa who would enjoy a more personal hotel experience with wonderful hosts. Clean, very comfortable rooms where you can get a great night's sleep. Breakfast is included, and transportation to Malpensa airport is provided at no cost. The room rates are very reasonable.
Thank you Cecelia and Sergio. It was truly a pleasure to have met you both!
