My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights while attending a sports competition. We had a double room with breakfast. The room was sufficient for what we needed. It had a balcony and the bathroom was plenty large and enough storage for our needs. The room updates and renovations were not in keeping with the original style of the... More

I stayed here for work for 2 nights. Walking into the hotel it's a bit of a weird style of... chintzy random nick-nacks, but the staff are friendly. The room followed the same theme of looking incredibly dated, however the bed was very comfortable and the room was very large with a full length built-in wardrobe and large double bed.... More

La Bussola hotel in Novara is one of the most wonderful hotels I ever been. It is almost at the center of the city. The staff is very nice, friendly, so cooperative. I still remember the days that I spent

We were on a long drive south towards Nice from Colmar and did a last minute online booking here. The hotel staff were very friendly, the food in the restaurant was amazing and the rooms were very clean and pleasantly decorated. Good facilities and not far from the centre of town. Wifi was a bit hit and miss in the... More

Back in 2010 I was visiting this hotel together with the German Baseball Team. Maybe not the best location for a hotel, but I thought it was a very nice hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast & Dinner in my opinion was also very good. Typical Italian! There was a supermarket right behind the hotel called "Carrefour" But... More

The main disadvantage is that the hotel is quite outside the city center. The lobby is overloaded with too much memorabilia. The room itself is clean and large, with extra large beds- the sleeping comfort is very good. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and could not complain.

This was my second visit to this hotel and I was not disappointed it was every bit as good as it was on my first visit. I arrived late so I could not enjoy the excellent dinner. I had breakfast in the morning which was a very generous and inviting buffet. For sure I would visit this hotel again.

This hotel was very clean, had large rooms, well stocked toiletries in bathrooms, and a good breakfast with lots of options. Also conveniently located is a grocery store around the back of the hotel. The only drawback is its location. It's definitely not close to downtown Novara. If you're without a car it's not very convenient, but only €10 will... More
