We recently spent two nights at the Hotel Pironi. Cannobio is a quiet town (at least at the end of the season) on Lake Maggiore, avoiding the busloads of tourists in some of the larger towns. It is 20 minutes from the Swiss border on the west side of the lake.

Hotel Pironi is a 12 room hotel in a very old personal residence. It has been transformed to an clean, comfortable, welcoming place with modern amenities and a great breakfast and a staff who went out of their way (literally - walking up the road to find us when the main street was closed for a fair) to be helpful. I can say I have never before had a hotel staffer carry my luggage two blocks, with a smile on her face. (Thanks, Sara!)

Our room was reasonably sized, with a king bed, two desks, a loveseat and a balcony with a partial view of the lake below. (Cannobio rises from the lakeside uphill in this hilly area.)

The bathroom was fine, with modern glass shower and glass sink, toilet and bidet. Hot water was plentiful with good pressure.

Breakfast was a plentiful buffet of meats, cheeses, cereals, yogurt, cakes, bread, and croissants. Eggs are made to order, as is coffee.

I would return to this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: Ask for Room X (10) - it has the balcony.

Booked this hotel due to a review in the Telegraph. It's fantastic. Lovely lovely friendly staff who can't do enough for you. They recommend fab restaurants and even paid for the bus for 6 of us to get to one. Simple breakfast served, but lots of choice. Great location. Clean rooms, and the hotel is great to relax in if there is a rainy day. The adjoining restaurant is lovely. This is not a criticism but you need to be aware of lots of beautiful old stone steps. And some in the bedroom to. Just be aware don't let it put you off , it was an old monetary before. Just loved my 4 days here.

Everything perfect, but the welcome from the staff makes all the difference. Have stayed in Como a few time, never again.

Hotel Pironi is hidden away from the lakefront, which makes it even more private. Exceptional open air restaurant just outside the hotel. This is a dream hotel in every way.

This was the second time we have stayed in the hotel. The last time was 15 yrs ago. It left a great memory15 yrs ago and it was the same this time.

It has a feel of friendly helpful service and that is what is delivered. It is not over the top. Just well balanced.

Restaurants just outside the hotel was also great value.

The Hotel Pironi is a choise that you would not regret for one second, set in the small streets of Cannobio right amongst the hustle and bustle of the town is an oasis of calm and serenity. My wife and I stayed for five nights and were really impressed with the Hotel, staff and general area. We were on a motorcycle tour and arrange with the hotel for a garage to park in which was a real asset as parking is at a premium in the town, reception made us very welcome indeed looking after all our needs during our stay. Breakfast was faultless with a fantastic selection of items to chose from.
Overall 5 star and would have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Pironi to anyone looking to stay in this area. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Take a room with a lake view to really enjoy the stay.
