Food is really good & restaurant head waiters & team are all so good, welcoming and obliging. The Chef & kitchen team seem to be able to create really good dishes & desserts every day. Hotel rooms are cosy & traditional...

My wife and I spent five wonderful days at the hotel as part of a group who had travelled by coach from Wales. The reception staff were very pleasant during the booking in process and during other times. The room door key is quit heavy so you really wouldn't want to carry it around during the day and is best...

We felt we had to write this review because the staff were so helpful and accommodating, As other reviews have stated the hotel is old but it is very clean and has lots of antique decorations so i suppose it should not be full of modern fittings The breakfast was very nice, so we would like to say a big...

There are two hotels, the Milan and the Speranza, separated by a narrow street . Both have spacious lounges, luxuriously decorated and furnished, and rooms are also elegant and well appointed. The restaurant is first class and the chef has more interesting ways with food than are normally found in most hotels, I found it very difficult to choose are...

Location and view! Nothing better. Right across from ferry terminal so sightseeing was very easy. One block from Old City Centre. Easy walking distance to all the city shopping, restaurants and sites. View was worth a million. Price was very reasonable. Rooms spotless. Beds comfortable. Perfect destination hotel!

The hotel Milan Speranza au Lac is perfectly located, fronting Lago Maggiore. The staff was helpful and serviceminded. Our rooms location was very good, on the top floor. But old carpets and interior seemed not upgraded. Impossible to blind the windows, and the sun started shining right into the bed 05:30a.m. You have to stand in the bathtub to shower,...

We originally only booked for 2 nights, but on arrival changed it to 4. The hotel is situated right on the lake and only yards from the ferry terminal, don't be put off by that, it is not noisy and quite relaxing watching the boats come and go! The staff were very friendly and catered for your every need. The...

Recently stayed at Hotel Speranza for four nights. The room was lovely, with a very good sized bathroom.The hilight was the balcony with an absolutely wonderful view of Lake Maggiore, just perfect for a pre-dinner prosecco..The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient, especially Lisa, who was particularly helpful. Suprisingly, there wasn't a fridge in the room, but upon request, we...
