We had a one night stay here a year ago. We looked forward to returning and had requested a room with a balcony this year. We were very happy to find that we had been allocated a second floor room with a terrace which was almost as large as our room. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable, and the...

We stayed at this hoterl not realising when we booked it that it was so far out of the centre of Arona all uphill. It would be impossible to walk upo and down to the centre. Limited parking in the hotel itself and we had to wait as someone had parked behind us. Chaotic organisation. We arrived at the same...

I wondered what rating to give this hotel. The location is beautiful, with a spectacular view of Lake Maggiore. This is a small, family run hotel and the staff are all very helpful. It looks as if some money has been spent on refurbishment and our room was nicely presented in a modern, minimalist style. Mattress was average. However, sleep...

The location is absolutely fantastic; both the gazebo and the terrace of the restaurant face the lake from the top of the hill, which greatly pays back for the inconvenience of the scarce connections to the city situated on the lake shore. It was a family vacation, but wifi is still needed these days to stay on top of things...

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Ristorante San Carlo while he was on business. The staff here is incredibly hospitable and very attentive! This hotel is absolutely wonderful! I highly recommend. The breakfast included is amazing, best enjoyed by the gorgeous view overlooking Lago Maggiore....the cappuccino and espresso is delicious! Evening dinners are superb. We stayed for seven days...

Our travelling companions booked two rooms on the statue side of the hotel. After a few issues getting our cars into the small parking area we spotted the view from the restaurant and terrace and immediately booked for dinner that night. Our rooms were modern and clean as was the bathroom. The only issue was that the water took an...

The good: amazing dinners and lunches. Warm friendly staff, nice views, decent value for money. The "not so good": small rooms, like warm shower water that never gers hot. Quite loud and nor well insulated against road and dining room noise. Breakfast a bit of let down after the amazing dinners we had

Dear guest , we are pleased that you enjoyed our restaurant. As for the noise that comes from the road we are providing to find a solution. We will try to improve the breakfast buffet as we have suggested. We hope to see you soon. Best regards

We stayed in a lake-view room, and the view is worth it! Very nice hotel: amazing location, modern facilities, decorated with taste, very friendly staff, good breakfast, good quality for price. Only small defects: rooms not very clean and soundproof, bed not extremely comfortable, restaurant can get crowded and noisy some nights.
