We stayed here once before the Skybar, and loved it enough to come back. But WOW it was a wonderful surprise! We really loved spending a hot afternoon sunbathing upstairs. Thanks, La Palma!

I should also note that the concierge staff were extremely friendly and helpful, even going so far as to let us up into our room when we misplaced the key.

This is the cleanest hotel we have ever been in. Everywhere is vacuum cleaned and polished in a non-stop routine that includes the elevator interiors and everything that can be polished or cleaned.

We found the room to be quite large and well equipped including a spa bath, everything worked perfectly, and there were even sufficient clothes hangers in the wardrobes.

Restaurant service was smooth and efficient; the Maitre D had his staff working like a well oiled machine. The food at both breakfast and dinner was extremely good and I am now 2.1/2 Kgs heavier after only one week.

If I visit Lake Maggiore again, this is where I will stay.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a Lake View

Balcony rooms were fantastic..views fantastic..brekky is fanastic! The staff were wonderfully helpful. Roof terrace views & service were second to no other. No complains..if you are wondering where to book for a relaxing, picturisque break, then this is the place to stay. I will be back... close to good eateries, booking office for island tour, train station & friendly bars.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the lake with roller shutters to block out noise, heat & cold. Bathroom was...

Spent 4 days here with my mother to celebrate significant birthdays! We found the location perfect, just a short walk in one direction to the town and the ferry terminal and a delightful walk in the other direction to the cable car terminal. The hotel itself was very comfortable and we found the staff friendly and helpful. We did have an issue with our rooms. Initially we were given rooms on the 1st floor with a side lake view. Unfortunately these rooms were extremely noisy from the traffic and also plumbing noises from other rooms. Upon complaining the next morning we were moved to much quieter rooms on the 2nd floor albeit with a less appealing view. The biggest disappointment was with the food. We had booked on a half board basis and didn't find the evening meal at all satisfactory. We had to send our main courses back on the 2nd night and after that decided to eat in town rather than risk spoiling the rest of our holiday. The breakfast was very good so no complaints there. There are many nice trattorias in town so if visiting again I would only book on a bed and breakfast basis.

The rooftop sun terrace is stunning. I would certainly recommend La Palma Hotel but do ensure you are allocated a quiet room. The main road which runs in front of the hotel is very busy and the side road also carries a significant amount of traffic. The metal blinds in the rooms are great for blackout purposes but do not have any effect on soundproofing!
