Room 12 (junior suite for 2 adults and 1 child (extendable sofa)) - great sleeping quality, plenty of space in the room (30-35...

We booked three nights to visit all the sights around the area. Arrived on a very busy Saturday, lots of traffic and a street market. Parking was adequate nearby for €7 per day. The hotel is very well positioned to the ferries and walking to local restaurants. The traffic is noisy but once you have closed the windows and put...

An old traditional building facing the lago Maggiore, with rooms of good size. Some have a very modern decoration, some a more traditional one, but all are comfortable, with good beds. Good bathroom amenities, free wi-fi in the rooms. Breakfast is good with a choice of breads, different sorts of croissants, traditional jam tarts, some hams and cheeses, vegetable, yogurts,...

Every time I travel to Verbania I always stay in that hotel. Its very nice, very clean and in great location. Views from the rooms with the lake view are great. Bed is very comfortable. Great place and it is not overpriced.
