We really enjoyed our 2-night stay at Al Palaz. A new renovation of an old farmhouse, Al Palaz opened in midsummer 2012. The renovation was of extremely high quality throughout, if I was building in the area I'd want the name of the contractor. In our "double" room: the bed was large and relatively comfortable, there was a minibar/fridge(!), a small balcony, and a large bathroom (no bidet if this matters to you). Importantly for you yanks out there, there was air conditioning in the room as well! Pretty fantastic for the sub-100EUR price range.
Breakfast - three kinds of fresh cake per morning, three kinds of homemade jam, plus all the other usual acoutrements (some fresh from the farm, plus fresh bread). No fancy espresso machine but the coffee was great (steamed milk was provided!). One of the best breakfasts we've had anywhere; it felt like being at home with grandma. They also sell their own jam and wine in case you can't live without the rare "apple-rhubarb" or "pear" flavor.
Also worth noting - Ester and her husband were extremely friendly and gracious. People in this region are friendly in general but we really felt well taken care of at Al Palaz.
Summary - a great place to stay in Valchiavenna.
