Atlantic Hotel Arona
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Arona
Reviewed 3 April 2017 via mobile

This hotel room was quite strange looking. However the layout was quite nice. The bathroom at the front near the door and then a separate room for the bed ect. The bed was large and relatively comfortable although the pillows were like flat pancakes. The shower was also terrible as my husband could barely fit in it (he's 6'7)and the water pressure wasn't anything to write home about. However as it was very quiet and peaceful, we would stay again.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled as a couple

The best of this hotel: 1) the location: the hotel is right in the centre of the town, in front of the lake, near the railway station, near the landing piers and near the congress centre; 2) the extraordinary views to the lake and to the Borromeo's castle ("Rocca di Angera"); they can be fully enjoyed from the front rooms, which are slightly more expensive than the others, but are absolutely worth the small extra; 3) the exceptional customer care: the management and the staff will go beyond any expectation to please you, everybody is welcoming and obliging, and I felt really pampered.

The hotel appears restyled (although the design is questionable). Rooms are reasonably large; my king size bed was perfect; my room had a private balcony with table, chairs and a splendid view to the lake; equipment included the safe (an older model, still operated with a key), coffee-making facility, refrigerator for the convenience of the guests, efficient air-conditioning (it was wintertime and the heating was excellent), small but well furnished bathroom, a TV set with lot of channels (but difficult to operate, due to its dual-use with two different broadcasting systems). Buffet breakfast is normally included in the room rate; it is good and reasonably abundant, but it is definitely tailored to suit the Italian tastes, i.e. with a large choice of sweets (of high-quality indeed) but no hot-foods in the buffet: anyhow they will prepare eggs and similar dishes on demand, at no extra cost. Parking is complimentary (at least it was when I stayed); the hotel has a few places in a minuscule and not easily accessible courtyard, plus some additional places in the street; it is wise to book in advance the parking place. There was no significant noise from the street, and the room was perfectly insulated from the noise in the corridor by a double door; some noise was however coming from the restaurant located on the 5th floor, where a soiree with deafening music was taking place. The staff communicates easily in several languages; I got the impression that they feel comfortable in dealing with the international clientele and that the hotel is popular with the air crews coming from the Milan-Malpensa airport. The hotel web-site has no provisions for making on-line reservation.

The overall comfort of my stay corresponded to what I expect from a good 3-star hotel. The hotel is however classified in the 4-stars category, a classification which may raise excessive expectations in the customer and feed possible disappointments. The rates are commensurate with the 4-stars category; in addition there is a city tax of 3 € per night. All in all, the hotel appears appropriate for business and pleasant for tourism, and I can recommend it.

Room Tip: Take a room with view to the lake !

What can I say about this hotel? Only positive things!!! This is the 17th time I had been in this hotel and I feel like I'm at home this is due to a very good excellent staff, they are all helpful & professional from the management to the lowest one. The rooms are all clean, the breakfast is continental buffet with a variety of sweets daily, the food is fantastic ( you're in Italy) the hotel is situated in front of lake maggiore in the heart of Arona. I recommend this hotel to everyone!!

I stayed here 5 nights on business. As some have noted the hotel is a little dated, but in general I found it to be very comfortable. The only negative was that the the tub/shower was not enclosed requiring one to be very careful in showering so as to not spray water all about ( my coworker had the room next to mine and said his shower WAS enclosed?). Loved having a small balcony over looking the lake...even though it was winter, I was able to enjoy a pipe and cigar outside the room ( of course, no smoking in the room itself). The evening meals in the dining room were very nicely prepared, and the waiters would do their best to translate the various menu dishes into English for us....sometimes with small jokes along the way! If business brings me back to Sesto Calende again, I hope to be able to stay at the Atlantic Hotel in Arona again.

So not much to rave about for the room itself. It was very small, but serviceable. There was a good selection of toiletries provided over and above just soap and shampoo which was nice. What really made this hotel worth the slightly more expensive price was the fact that for the first time during my Italy trip I had wifi that worked 100% without issue all night long. Well that and the breakfast, it was the best I've seen. At least 10 different cakes and pastries, a meats and eggs station, and then a large range of continental options. You will not leave hungry. A final plus was the railway station literally across the road..so convenient. Rooms as I said are very small and very dated but if you are a simple traveller you will probably find it to be just enough.
