We hadn't intended staying in Varese, but a car accident left my wife in hospital and me in the hotel for a few nights. The hotel and rooms were spotless, characterful but with modern amenities, the bathroom was very good, beds comfortable, everything worked. I was in an attic room facing the road but the traffic certainly didn't bother me even with the balcony door open. Excellent buffet breakfast with scrambled or boiled eggs if required freshly made, not kept under a heat lamp. The staff were extremely helpful especially as I needed help to arrange getting all our stuff back to England.
As noted in other reviews, looks like excellent cycling country, I hope to go back and try it.

Room Tip: Your choice - the standard rooms are fine or you can pay a bit more for a room at the rear, away from the road.

We chose this hotel as it is an easy 30-40 minute journey from malpensa airport.
We chose a panoramic room which was huge with a massive balcony with a lake glimpse.
Breakfast was fine with freshly cooked scrambled eggs.
We didn't go into the main town but the area is nothing special and didn't entice us to stay,
That said the welcome was good it was reasonably priced and had a very comfy bed.

Room Tip: Chose room at the back as it does face a busy road

I'm usually a bit skeptical with 'great reviews', but this did not disappoint us. We opted for a panoramic room, as the hotel is on a main road, and this was at the rear with a lake view. We slept with the windows open (even though there is air-con, we prefer to turn it off and enjoy the air) and we slept well. Bed was big and comfortable.

The staff could not have been more helpful with tips and planning (train to Milan only takes an hour, and costs about 6 Euro each way - depends on the service, Express/stopper, but worth doing).
Breakfast is a small but high quality buffet. Scrambled eggs, when you want, are done for you freshly, not the yellow homogenous mass that some hotels will lay on in mounds. Fresh bread, cold meats, local cheeses, fresh fruit and homemade cookies and cake.

I'm hard pressed to find a failure. As a small thing beer in the mini bar would have been nice, although I could get a dring downstairs, and a waste bin in the bedroom as well as the bathroom, but that's scraping the barrel for something.

Varese itself has a nice, small, old town, which is about 20 minutes walk away (as is the rail station). Milan if you want is easy enough by train, so no hassle on the ring road or finding parking.

Room Tip: Panoramic rooms at the back, away from the road side and a lake view

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in the two rooms in the attic. The rooms are spacious and clean. While there are two small windows, the room was dark and hot. You can open the window but then, it's noisy by the traffic. The hotel is not located in the town center but you can easily walk to downtown in 15 minutes. Staff is very kind and helpful. Breakfast is excellent especially we loved eggs (boiled, scrambled, fried or omelette - you can order as you like) and fresh fruits and home-made cakes. Two supermarkets and some restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Not recommend the attic in the spring/summer

We had a panorama room on the third floor which had lovely views and a balcony and was on the quiet side of the hotel (which is on a very busy road).
The staff were brilliant, always happy to help. Bike storage in the garage was easy.
The breakfast was in another level, it has the look of a normal hotel buffet but every component was wonderful. Freshly made cakes and bread, fresh mozzarella and ricotta, good quality meat, locally made jam and honey. Coffee was made to order as were freshly scrambled and boiled eggs. Just the perfect start to a day of cycling.
