I booked to stay here long before my arrival and the totally brilliant host Andrea kept me informed throughout about any info needed re covid etc. Upon arrival I was warmly welcomed and made to feel at ease with a little tour of the property and provided with all info needed for my 8 night stay. My room was very large , had a lovely balcony and bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable and the whole place spotlessly clean. The breakfast was of good quality in a very relaxed atmosphere. There is a garden patio area with magnificent views. I can't praise Andrea enough as he was always at hand and we enjoyed many conversations. I would not hesitate to return and highly recommend a stay here.
L’Ostello del Costello is a charming B&B close to the heart of the old town of Tirano. We spent two nights there so we could take the famed Bernina Express from its start in Tirano up to Chur in Switzerland and then return on the local train back the same day to Tirano. A tiring trip but the views of the high alpine mountains and deep valleys were exceptional. We did not expect to find that Tirano was such a lovely town with good restaurants and beautiful views. It was a great place to decompress before returning home to the USA The Ostello was built on the foundations of the 15th century city walls and appears to have been formed from several very old houses. It has just been completely renovated and updated. Thank God it had an elevator as it is on several levels with lots of terraces with good views. It is exceptionally clean with comfy rooms. Nice breakfast was offered and wine in the evening is available. It is owned and lovingly managed by Andrea who is a delightful host. He is the main selling point her. He speaks English fluently and is eager to share the stories of the history of Tirano and is very helpful in recommending great restaurants and bars and with info on the options for the Bernina Express. He was also a Godsend in helping us arrange a pre flight returning COVID test at a nearby pharmacy so we could have that in hand before we got to the airport. That took off a huge amount of worrying about getting the required Covid test 72 before departure without the stress of trying to do it at the Milan Airport the morning before we flew out. Andrea worked hard to make our stay in Tirano as wonderful as possible. I can’t recommend him and his lovely B&B highly enough!…
Andrea is an exceptional host and his family hotel is a little hidden gem in Lombardy. Very neat and tidy. The house is over 400 years old but fully restored. I would recommend it to anybody. Also Tirana is an nice little town with many nice restaurants. Well worth a stay over.
The friendly owner has a stunning property with great character in a terrific corner of town. Very atmospheric. The owner took time to give us a tour of the property and suggest sights and restaurants to visit. The whole property is maintained in perfect detail. Truly very impressive indeed
On our way from innsbruck to Nice we stayed 1 night in Tirano and with the help of TripAdvisor we found this gem. Perhaps not the best view with a block in front of us, but the rest was perfect. -Owner who with passion told us of the very interesting story of the house. -Clean, nice, cosy and large enough bedroom, with bath, for 2. -Good breakfast -Fantastic atmosphere. -Good parking facility. -2 min walk to the old town of Tirano -euro 80 for the night and all this on a wet and dark autumn afternoon/evening.
