“exellent stay to start bernina express journey”
Reviewed 21 December 2011

We reached there within 5 to 10 min. walk n were welcomed by Grace n Lawrence.They are very friendly n helpful in every aspect.Though they didn't know english but we used google translation on laptop.It was a nice experience.Room was good with clean attached bathroom worth the price.Lawrence played piano accordion n my husband flute,n it was really very melodious combination.This shows that music has no language.We really felt at home.The approach road is cobbled n buildings old which we really appreciated.The house is well furnished n nicely decorated.Breakfast was simple n sumptuous.We stayed there on 10th dec.2011 for a night as we were to catch bernina express the next day.We asked him for a taxi but he said he will drop us at the station as we had more luggage n he did.

Stayed there early October 2011 for three nights. We were given the downstairs room which is more of a little apartment with kitchen (which we did not use though). The room is basic, clean though a bit dark. The location is in a quiet side street just a couple of cars in the morning (it's Italy!). Certainly a good base for sightseeing around Tirano.
Host Grazia is most helpful. Would not be able to comment on her language skills as we spoke Italian with her. Breakfast quite simple but overall good price / value. Certainly a place to recommend.

If you don't want an anonymous hotel room, stay here. Lovely spot, lovely hosts. And good value.

We had 2 rooms, a double and a single. Double had an attached bath and a double (or larger?) bed. Single had 2 twin beds with a huge private bath across the hall. Beautiful tile floors everywhere. The owners were very friendly. Price was very reasonable. They recommended dinner at a local restaurant - Trattoria Valtellinese- which was excellent. Order the "manfrigole"- a specialty, dried beef and cheese wrapped in a crepe- delicious! We were staying in Tirano to catch the Bernina Express the next day.

We were welcomed to Casa Mia, in the old town of Tirano, with incredible warmth and friendliness. Gracia, the host, and her husband, are really, really, lovely and we managed to communicate quite a lot without speaking each other's language.
The old town, an easy 5 minute walk from the station, is surrounded by beautiful old stone walls and incredible old buildings. The rooms at Casa Mia are simple and decorated in the style you would expect of a 60 year old woman, but are clean, warm and homely. I had read somewhere on a forum that Tirano "isn't much to look at" and was expecting as much, as we were only staying there because it was the end point of the Bernina Express train line, but we were pleasantly surprised by its cobbled streets and with fantasies of owning run down stone buildings. It really is a lovely place to spend a night.
The new part of town is the exception (pretty standard and ugly) but venture there to eat at the relatively cheap restaurants or to use the internet in the sweet little local library (which is actually on the way to Casa Mia). Breakfast was the basic Italian fare, but more than enough to get started for the day. A lovely, cheap place to lay your head.
