The hotel was outside of the town, so a long walk to the nearest village or a local taxi. We had booked for 3 nights at this hotel but left after only 2. The hotel is in need of a refurb, very dated. The fridge in our room didn't work and was in need of cleaning out, something black lurking...

I spent 2 nights in this hotel (booked via Booking.com) and I was expecting more from this hotel. First of all, is a Hotel or Motel? The style reminds me to a Motel back to the 80s.... The rooms are very dark and dated, the TV still old ones and complicated to use, the breakfast was ok but nothing special...

Close to the main roads and highways, same feeling like motel in United States, rooms with parking in front, old style inside, small bathrooms. Nice pool area, nice breakfast and friendly service. If you traveling around or visiting the lakes, you can spend 1 or 2 nights.

I spent one night in this hotel with my boyfriend. If this hotel was a four star, I wouldn't have to complain about anything. The room was small and old-style furnished. The toilet was too small, you didn't have the space to stay in two people. The water of the shower was lukewarm, not hot! I waited 15 minutes, but...

When you make a reservation through Easybook or booking.com you discover that your room is in the motel part of the compound and that you are not entitled to the fitness club unless you pay a supplement.

Dear MArc thank you for 5 green stars! About services, take care to check better your room choose at moment of booking. Standard rooms are cheaper but services all not all free in. Superior ones have all inclusive to have a correct idea of all we offer. Best regards Giordano RSL

We were in varese for business and found ourselves an off day day due to a holiday. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and restaurant ok. For sure not deserving of such bad reviews. Second floor rooms are better not motel feeling. Just thought another perspective was deserving
