Have just returned from a four-night stay at this hotel. as we were visiting friends nearby. The hotel was very clean. Room quiet. Very good shower with lots of hot water. Comfortable bed. However, in other ways, found it rather basic. No wardrobes in the room. Just coat hangers on the wall. No drawers, just a slot under the safe,... More

Stayed here for two days in late September. The room was very spacious. The bed very comfortable. Although not a great deal within walking distance, there is a roadhouse restaurant across the street but I did not get a chance to try it. The restaurant in the hotel was terrible. The dinners I believe are catered in and the quality... More

Good points - Helpful staff, minimal noise from neighboring rooms, free breakfast includes hot scrambled eggs and hot ham, very clean bathroom, walking distance to local grocery store (Tigros), free bike rentals, it's just off of a major highway but no highway noise. Points for improvement - This hotel has no second story so no privacy when curtains are opened,... More

We got a room to be the back of the hotel as requested. The room was practical but no press for hanging of your clothes just hooks and hangers (business hotel - ok, if you're only there for one night with one suit...) The beds are very hard and I was in quite some pain in the mornings due to... More

Good quiet hotel with easy access and good sized rooms. Good location close to main roads. Didn't opt for breakfast so can't comment. Would've liked to be able to make a cup of coffee in the room. I've stayed in a lot of hotels in Italy and this is by far the cleanest that I've been in. Sky in the... More

We stayed six nights in this hotel while participating in an event in the area. After a cramped, noisy hotel in Milan, we appreciated the quiet and comfortable room. Capolago has more in common with an American motel than a typical Italian hotel, but it suited our needs very well. The breakfast buffet was the best we found in Italy,... More

I stayed for two nights at the Hotel Capolago in June. This is sort of a hotel/motel hybrid -- although it is more upscale that one might think of a motel, many of the rooms are accessible directly from the parking area through a patio door. This would make it very convenient if you have lots of gear to bring... More
