Hotel Lago Bin
Reviewed 10 August 2014

I stayed for a week at Lago Bin hotel with my girlfriend our 3 year old son in July. I chose the hotel because of the swimming pool area and the reasonable price. I was not disappointed at all with my stay.

The hotel itself is quite old style looking, its interior is heavy with dark wooden furniture, rugs on the floors and decorative lamps and stuffed animals ... It's charming, but also looking a bit dated. The hotel definitely needs a bit of a facelift but shouldn't lose the charm if it receives a facelift. The room was decent, it was spacious enough for us, the bathroom as well and we had a balcony overlooking the garden and the river. The bed was big and quite comfortable.

The swimming pool was used a lot since the weather was extremely good the whole time, sunshine and 30°C every day. The children's swimming pool and the sunbathing area for the grown ups to relax was also very welcoming, it's not always that you have a children's pool. The whole swimming pool garden looked nice but needs to be maintained a bit more, it looked a bit "used".

The biggest plus however is the breakfast. It's the best hotel breakfast I have ever experienced. So much varied selection, this was a real buffet! Everyone can find something they like. I ate so much in the morning that I was normally full until the afternoon so we often just ate fruits in between breakfast and dinner. The restaurant was very fancy and the food was excellent. Not cheap but not really expensive either because the food was so good, the portions were very big (much bigger portions compared to the other Italian restaurants we ate at) and they don't charge you for the water or a "coperto" which is like a "cover charge" for napkins and bread. So try the restaurant, you will not be disappointed. The restaurant actually looks to very popular for private parties of some kind because during our stay there, two weddings were held there in the big separate room that is located next to the swimming pool.

The location of the hotel is both good and bad. It's located on a mountain side so it's little bit "outside" the main towns on the coast but it only takes 15-30 minutes to drive to nearest towns/cities such as Ventimiglia, Sanremo or Arma di Taggia which has nice sandy beaches.. The location also proves to be good because the surroundings are very beautiful with the mountains, the trees and the river. It's very quiet area so you will relax if you are looking for a good place to really relax. There is practically nothing disturbing you there. In 5 minutes driving distance is Dolceacqua which is very old and small town, so beautiful and charming little place that you MUST visit.

All in all, I really liked my stay there and for the price that I paid, I couldn't have asked for more.

We randomly chose this hotel en-route from Pisa to Nice. It has a nice parking lot (a bit far from the lobby though). The rooms are nice and charming. The bar was pretty much closed at night. We enjoyed our one night stay, but did not have time to enjoy the local charm.

Lago bin is located on beutiful green mountain side, next to a river. The landscaping is beautiful. You can enjoy the groomed garden, meditate while looking at the waterfall in the river below, or sit down with a drink in one of the comfy sitting areas.
The hotel itself felt from a different time. When you enter the lobby you are surrounded by a large collection of stuffed animals. The kids freaked out a bit... the furniture is brown and heavy, and the overall atmosphere is dark. The rooms were ok, with a large bathroom and a cute terrase, over looking the river.
One important feature of the hotel is its restaurant, but we didn't try it.
Overall, i enjoyed our stay very much. We spent lovely time i the garden, and toured the charming neighbor village Dolceacqua.

It's 15 minutes from the nearest town up a very narrow mountain road. It's decorated like a hunting lodge, with very austere rooms. AC didn't work, TV was the oldest and smallest I've seen in quite some time. Everything was quite clean though. As positive points, the hotel has very nice gardens and the surroundings are beautiful, but as a hotel (rooms, food, service) I would not recommend it.
