This B&B, in the small town of Ispra on the shore of Lago Maggiore, is a lovely place to stay, with very friendly proprietors (who do speak excellent English). Ask for the “Room with a View” and a spectacular view (weather permitting!) it is. This room, while small, has an adjacent bathroom, and is light and airy with big picture windows looking out on the lake and garden of the property. The room has a lockable door leading to a small kitchen (which is shared with the other room for let downstairs). In the kitchen, you find ample breakfast supplies (coffee, tea, juice, water, bread for toast, fruit, etc.) and a great espresso machine and microwave. Internet is free and the connection is fast. Overall, a great place to stay, and close to the Ispra research complex.

While the hotel was excellent and the staff great, Expediate claimed that the hotel provided free pick up at the train and a shuttle (surcharge) to the airport. We only chose this hotel in a small rural village because of that claim. There was no train station in Taino. The nearest was 10 minutes away. The phone number on Expedia was incorrect. The men in the station spoke little English. I finally explained my problem and they found a different phone number for the hotel. They were able to find someone to pick us up but it cost us 20 euro. The hotel said they have been with Expedia for a few years and never provided free pickup at the station. They were 30 minutes from the airport which was not close and cost another 40 euro. I booked this place because it was reasonable and not only had extra expense but considerable stress besides. I will hesitate to trust Expedia after this. Patricia Berens, Chicago area.
Everything about the apartment was just utterly perfect; the furniture and fittings were of the highest quality. The kitchen was fabulously well equipped. The private nominated underground parking was secure and kept the car cool. The pool has the most fantastic view of Cannobio across the lake and of the mountains, and as it is west facing you get to enjoy the sunsets. The air conditioning system was wonderful and made the apartment feel like a sanctuary from the heat. This is the nicest place I have ever stayed in (and I have stayed in a lot of places).
On arrival I was a little concerned as the hotel seems a little dated. I shouldn't have worried! There are lots of steps so a challenge with a push chair, but other than that it is a wonderful place to stay. Very relaxing, friendly helpful staff and amazing views.
