We spent a long weekend in this hotel. Rooms are not large but nicely decorated and extremely clean. The beds are very comfortable and the rainwater shower a nice touch. Breakfast is quite good, with many fresh items - fruit, boiled eggs, croissants, and bread. Good coffee as well - choice of cappuccino, espresso, and Americano. All in all, a... More

We spent 2 nights here in a very nice modern room. We were fortunate to be on the second floor with a view of the lake. They also have a nice restaurant and buffet for most meals. We found that for dinner that the buffet is all we needed to order.

We have chosen this hotel for a one night stay. The Hotel is located directly in front of the Lago di Varese. The Hotel room was nice and clean. In the restaurant you can sit outside in the garden enjoying the nice view. You can chose different menu’s, but We missed a little bit to eat ala card. The staff... More

Everything about this hotel was excellent - the room, the food, the staff, the view etc. I need to use a wheelchair/mobility scooter and the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Thank you.

Superb location on the edge of the lake. We had a lake view on the second floor and it could not have been better. I was concerned about the possible noise from a nearby fun-fair (there just for Easter) but I needn't have worried as the double glazing adequately took care of that. We ate in the restaurant for a... More

In front of Lake Varese with a beautiful view, very peaceful and romantic. Close to main roads, with a nice restaurant and very good breakfast. Clean, and like some reviews, bathroom and shower are fantastic. Ask to sit outside with a lake view, you will enjoy it !!

Great breakfast, great view from my room -- we had a lake view room. There is a nice walking trail right outside of the hotel that you can take for exercise. Lots of people and families out walking around the lake on an asphalt trail. Beautiful. Swans and ducks are nearby.
