    The air conditioning did switch on but wasn't really working so it was a bit hot in the room. As our room was on the ground floor with large windows it didn't feel secure to keep them open at night.

    The location of the hotel is excellent. We left out car in the secure car park there and just walked into the lovely old town. It's so convenient. The hotel building also looks lovely and blends in well with the rest of the old town. They've upgraded us to a bigger room so that was nice.

    Reception on arrival, it was a drama to arrange a child bed even though we have called the day before and were assured that everything can be arranged on short notice. After asking if it is possible buy a bottle of Prosecco at the reception, I was told to go to the city to get some. And asking for some glasses to consume it in the room the reaction of the lady has left me with an unwelcome impression. Hospitality feels different (older lady)! Room to main road was very noisy if you like to open a window to get some fresh air during the night.

    Friendliness of Staff during breakfast (very worm and welcoming lady) Check out (young lady)

    I have never been to a hotel with such friendly owners and staff! We had problems with our car and they were really helpfull in assisting and translating with the towing service and the garage. This was really a relief to us. The hotel is beautifull, traditional, but also modern. Nice renovated rooms with high ceilings. Isolated glass, so we had a quiet sleep, even though the hotel is in the middle of the centre, just where the historical part starts. Good breakfast. The lady who prepares eveything around the breakfast is friendly and helpfull to the max! The hotel has an enclosed parking lot, which can be used for free. Very convenient when travelling with a packed car. We had a great stay.

    The A/C was a bit hard to control, had to set it at 16° to get some cooling. The hotel is on a main street, so you can hear the traffic at times (sirens, loud motor bikes), despite the double pane windows. Also sound insulation Inside could be better.

    good location, right next to the center of Varese, convenient private car parking behind the hotel. Very friendly staff, clean & spacious room. Nice breakfast with several local specialities! The restaurant next door is really nice .It's only 30 minutes to Malpensa airport, which is conveneint too. Overall, a nice place to stay.

    Bed a bit too hard. Needs to be firm but soft. Could sometimes smell that someone had been smoking in the room, so not so nice, but bearable. Tourists can find the excessive smoking in Italy (andFrance) a bit disgusting, so having even a little of the smell on the room is off putting.

    Simple and friendly and staff very helpful. I especially like having a little fridge and kettle.
