An old building but very modern inside; newly renovated with style. We had a room with a balcony and a bit of a view. Perhaps the best thing about this place is how close it is to the very old town of Intra and it is interesting. It's virtually in this place's back yard. The excellent supermarket Tigris is less...

We visit Verbania 4 times a year and always try to stay here. It is decently priced at around 90 euros. The rooms are a good size and overlook the lake and promenade and you get breakfast thrown in. Breakfast is self service but good with a range of breads and pastries, meats and even bacon and scrambled eggs. Verbania...

Our stay at the Ancora hotel was idyllic. We paid a little extra to get a room with a lake view and it was well worth it. The room and bed were huge, lovely modern bathroom and reasonable breakfast. Fab location right in the middle of Verbania with parking close by.

Having booked a room with a lake view and balcony, we were informed upon arrival that the room was unavailable due to a plumbing issue...We were given another room directly above with a view but no balcony. This information proved to be untrue as we soon saw guests sitting on the balcony of 'our' room below ! They had clearly...

We stayed for the first time in this Hotel and we shall certainly go back when we visit Verbania the next time. Recently refurbished, very efficiently managed in a absolutely central location, it is no doubt the best Hotel in Verbania. The avenue between the hotel and the lake is obviously full of life and therefore very noisy, but the...

Centrally located hotel with friendly staff. Parking facilities are nearby the ferry station at special hotel rate or (covered) in a reserved area (you might want to reserve in advance). Rooms are ok and offer good comfort and quality and - according to the category chosen - a great view on the Lake Maggiore. The breakfast buffet surprises with a...
