Angela was there for us at every moment! This is such an amazing hotel rich in history only pictures can describe. Quaint, luxurious, historic and beautiful. I visited for a wedding of a dear friend. This is an off the beaten path in Varallo and whether a wedding or just a romantic getaway. Glorious mountain top words can not describe. Love, love. Angela is an Angel!

We started our special pilgrimage with an overnight stay at the Vecchio Albergo Sacromonte because it was so close to our intended site - the 15th c. amazing Sacromonte di Varallo. Not only was the hotel wonderful (despite no elevator), the dinner was fabulous. The risotto was wonderful, the choice of wines extensive. great service, good food, a beautiful spot. Yes, it's out of the way but a hidden gem worth a detour. The dining room dates back to the 16th century and the building was built to house the artists and craftsmen who built and created the chapels and dioramas of the Sacromonte. Best thing is the entrance is right next door to the hotel-restaurant.

The antico albergo, next to the entrance of the mind blowing Sacro Monte, provides old-fashioned hospitality and appears unselfconsciously authentic. A very recent Michelin plaque announces quality, but the book shelf next to the hotel reception only stocks guides from around 2003 - charming.
Service was very friendly, and even during the July 2015 heat wave the well-aired dining room provided a welcome rest after exploring the magnificent Sacro Monte.
The food was good Italian fare, based on very good local produce with occasional hints at originality. A surprise, entincing us from what was supposed to be a brief snack to a full three-course meal. A few Italian couples spend the summer in the hotel (and restaurant, it seems) - they know why they are coming.
