Score from 250 reviews Excellent
Lives up its 'grand' name! Beautiful grounds and spectacular views. Staff friendly, dinner was excellent.
It's not easy to get into town. The wifi is fast but constant need for password was annoying.
Good spot if you are flying out of Milpensa--40 minutes away. Very quiet. Lovely views, but not within walking distance of Varese.
Restaurant was expensive and obviously set up for tour groups who got prepaid meals. Unfortunately you are a captured audience for meals unless you have a car or want to pay for a taxi.
Lovely view of the lake from my room, helpful staff, nice location
Bathroom floor was filthy, coffe at breakfast is horrible
charming, old-world style hotel complete with heavy keys you must leave at the front desk great views wonderful staff
not convenient location
Large renovated room overlooking garden and lake. Good service at the reception, evening dining and bar. Free transport to and from the Varese train station.
Breakfast a little slapdash
The bathroom space was incredibly poorly used. The shower was very small although there was an obvious way to enlarge it at very minimal cost. The WC was situated very poorly in a corner with a wall directly in front and very close. Simply turning it through 90 degrees would have made it much more convenient especially for the elderly and those with some disability.
very beautiful, romantic old luxury hotel, view from balcony, big room, comfortal beds, luxury badroom, proffesional stuff.
away from the center, no problem with car.
Poor room sound insulation
Excellent location, huge bedroom, large clean bathroom, wonderfully helpful staff. The grounds are spacious with a small pool, sunbathing area and tennis court. The Wifi is free for 30 minutes in the lobby but you can have as many 30 minute sessions as you like. The breakfast is excellent with cereals, fruit juices, fruit, cheeses, hams, bacon and scrambled eggs, bread, jam and cakes, etc. the coffee is from a machine but the very helpful waiter will make you a fresh cup of you choice on request. We paid €65 a night which is stupendous value!
The food in the restaurant was a bit pricey although not really out of step with the restaurants in the town. Otherwise, no complaints whatsoever.
Location,long winding journey to the hotel, beds
The view The doors of my room opening out to the view of the lake The friendly staff ( Domenico and Allesandra ) and amazing views from the restaurant for breakfast and dinner
A fascinating place to stay - you really feel as though you are going back into another era, and well worth staying there if you are passing through. The location is great, and breakfast overlooking the lake and with the mountains in the distance is wonderful!
Location ideal for exploring the Italian lakes by car. A period style hotel which has seen better days but remains pleasant.
We booked a triple room for my sons. When we arrived they were given a double room. The man on the reception was appalling. He said that a triple room is a double with a put up bed. We told him that a triple room has 3 beds and that there was a picture on the hotel's website if he wanted to look. Eventually, he made a call and we were offered a choice of 2 triple rooms. This created a bad initial impression. I cannot understand how one individual could let down the hotel down so badly.
The park surrounding
The ala carte dish, all that was offered, was terribly over priced; seemed setup gor tour groups
Hotel was charming, clean, old-fashioned and grandious. Breakfast was great. Value for money, very comfortable room.
I had noisy neighbours waking me at 1 am- 2 am most mornings. One of the Directors was rude to me and unwilling to help me with exchanging some currency despite a call from a local bank asking for help. He did change a small amount of money for me (at a very poor rate) but was obviously not happy about it. This made me feel very uncomfortable when he was on reception and I only had him to deal with. There is an extremely long, uphill driveway and you really need to be very fit to climb it. This put me off venturing out more than once a day. Wi fi system of only being available for 30 minutes at a time and only in the lobby (unless you paid) was a pain!
beautiful grounds, swimming pool and ample parking. Rooms are quite big and the bathroom well stocked.
a liitle too far to walk into town
Beautiful old hotel with loads of charm
Getting a bit run down, needs a bit of love.
There were lovely views from the hotel.
This hotel does not have internet access to the rooms unless you purchase it or you can go to lobby for a free half an hour internet. No hot water on our check out morning. Housekeepers don't check levels of bathroom essentials.
This once-grand hotel is now a bit faded and tired, but has bags more character than any modern hotel in this price range. The high ceilings, big windows, imposing location on the top of a hill, big bathrooms and the old style decorations make this a pleasant and unique place to stay.
There were some cobwebs 12 feet up in the corners of the ceiling. Our room didn't have aircon although the website stated it did, but in fact it was not needed at all as the room was very well insulated and ventilated. The free lobby wifi connection was terribly slow and unreliable.
Elegant old hotel located on a hill some 15 minutes walking distance from Varese centre. We asked for a room with a view and received a beautiful corner room with a fantastic view over the lake on one side and towards the town on the other. We had a great stay.
Wifi free in the lobby but not in the rooms.
A little bit of history within the Palace. Location very convenient with a car. Views from the room fantastic. Breakfast area very impressive with good selections to start the day.
Hotel was beautiful, charming and quaint in a very grand way. Spacious with wonderful views and a great breakfast.
There is an extremely long uphill driveway, probably one km long if not more, extremely difficult to walk more than once per day. I am fit, anyone less fit or disabled in anyway would not manage it Some staff members at reception were abrupt and unhelpful, one in particular, a Direttore, who was quite rude to me when I asked for some money to be exchanged after the bank had phoned him to.inform him how much difficulty I was having changing money
Beautiful room with lovely view of the lake. The room was very clean, a good size and with a comfortable bed with quality linen. The way the yapping dogs in the next room were dealt with promptly by staff
I would have liked to know to whom I was speaking at reception, name tags could be helpful. I had failed to notice this was a dog friendly hotel hence the surprise of having to share the breakfast room them! Breakfast was uninspiring and of mediocre quality. Fresh bread (not cheap ready sliced in a poly bag), rolls, fresh fruit and juice don't cost that much.
The best scenic view of the area one could ever expect. Great job on an updated bathroom!!
Rooms were a bit dated. The menu was very poor don't eat here is my advice
Hotel was excellent location, free shuttle to town very good, airport shuttle service, good food and breakfast.a grand old hotel which retains its charm and charisma spendidly, staff weer excellent
I dont like paying for wifi
