Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Simplon Hotel is a grand beauty with some incredible touches like the art filled tunnel to its sister hotel.
It was too cold to swim in the expansive outdoor pool in May but just looking at it and the manicured grounds that surrounded it were enough for us.
Our room had old world charm and breakfast was white linen lovely.
There are less expensive hotels in Baveno but if you can score a room overlooking Lake Maggiore you will be happy indeed.
Have an Aperol Spritz on the outdoor terrace and enjoy the scene and fresh air of this northern Italy town.

This is a beautiful hotel. The interior design reminds the early 1900s and this fits the hotel very well. Space is usually at premium around Lago Maggiore but this hotel has plenty of space everywhere: lobby, pool, restaurant, car park. The guests can use the facilities of nearby Hotel Dino which makes a total of three pools. Even the corridors linking the two hotels are very nice. The front desk staff are very friendly and I heard them speaking Italian, English, French and German fluently. The hotel is perfectly clean both in the rooms and the common areas. The rooms are large. The room is quite nice and is up to the standards of a four star hotel but with a few changes such as top quality mattress and sheets and also better quality shower gel and shampoo it could be a good five star hotel room.

Well located hotel with good facilities and friendly staff. Our room on the third floor had a wonderful view over the the lake and gardens was spacious and the air con great. Breakfast was good but fresh fruit was slow to be replenished and the orange juice machine was a problem. Dinners were not up to standard for the hotels rating but expensive and limited in choice. Linked to Dino Hotel by useful passageway which avoided walk down busy road.

Room Tip: Essential to have a rear room overlooking gardens and lake. Third floor ideal.

Stayed here for a week with a tour group.
Very nice old fashioned hotel. All staff dealt with were courteous and helpful.
I paid about £260 extra to get a lake view room. The view was stunning. The other option would have been a room with a view over s busy road and probably no balcony.
Room facilities were average for this level of hotel but I feel that thick winter duvets were not the best bedding when the temp was in the 30s.
Lovely pool and gardens.
Hotel is badly let down by the food. No fresh fruit available at breakfast, only tinned. Cook offering not very appetising.
The dinners were dreadful. The menu was repetitive, the food never hot often cold, some of it was frankly inedible and much went back. Portion sizes were small (maybe no bad thing given the food). Some of our group, me included went to eat elsewhere. Pizzeria over the road was good.
Cold drinks are expensive, about 50% over what you would pay elsewhere and €5 for a can of Fanta is having a laugh.

Of the four hotels my wife and I stayed in during our recent tour of the Italian Lakes, this was the worst. We were allocated a small room on the ground floor close to reception that was dark and dingy and overlooked a weed patch. We had to keep the shutters closed most of the time as anyone walking down the adjacent corridors could easily look into our room as they passed by. Despite the grand decor of the restaurant, our dining experience was not great as the food (of average quality) was often served lukewarm at table, and the breakfast experience involved lengthy trips to and from the buffet.

This hotel is very clean and well maintained. The gardens and pool are outstanding and being able to use the facilities at the sister hotel was a bonus. Reception staff are very pleasant.
The bar staff were efficient.
The dining room is beautiful but sadly the food leaves a lot to be desired.
It lacked imagination and 2 tasty courses would have been preferable to many courses of poor quality.
A trip to the breakfast bar resulted in over zealous waiters clearing the table when we had not finished eating.
The maitre d did not ask why there was so much food left uneaten.
We were refused tap water and had to pay 5 euros for a bottle of water at each meal.
What a shame when the overall look of the hotel is so nice

We stayed at the Hotel Simplon as part of a tour we were on. The staff upon arrival were so nice and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable, clean and had an amazing view of the lake. The buffet breakfast each morning was delicious and the wait staff was very nice and provided great service.

Very nice hotel in the pretty town of Baveno.
Lovely pool area . Rooms very nicely appointed. If you go for a lake view go high up as was on the first floor and whilst you get a large sitting area view is not as good as higher up .
Food was ok but some less appetising evenings. Breakfast was also ok but the fresh fruit didn’t come out first thing and the fresh squeezed juice was not always available,
The option to walk to sister hotel Dino through an unusual connecting tunnel and use the facilities was very good.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful
Easy to walk into the town and there is a supermarket opposite.ideal base from which to explore lake maggiore

This was our first trip to Lake Maggiore but won’t be the last! The hotel is perfect for families and is simply stunning in terms of decor, cleanliness, setting and friendliness of its staff. There are a number of hotels in the chain, the closest of which is the Grand Dino which is much larger and not as intimate as the Simplon, but equally on par for lavishness and you can share all the facilities. Baveno and Stressa are an ideal setting for a visit to Lake Maggiore, it’s islands just off the shore are serviced by a variety of boats. All in all we found the Simplon the perfect Hotel for our family of four to relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing!

Stayed here for a conference. Service was rather poor. No minibar in rooms, no kettles to make some tea. You will have to order hot water from a bar downstairs. Waiters take your plates even before you finish your food. Dinner is served quite slowly so you’ll finish around 10 pm. Air conditioning was useless and did not adjust up to your manipulation with control. Not enough electrical sockets. Location and beautiful nature saves the place.
