We spent 3 nights at La Casa Sul Lago (actually sleeping in the B&B Emporio, see review I made of it for details regarding the room).
This place is classified as an hostel, but it really feels like an hotel with an informal, but still very professional, feeling.
We were welcomed by Agnese, who showed us the room. After that she checked us in and explained us some of the things around, i.e. where to go, where to eat, ... She was really very helpful, nice, and fun as well.
Our dog was very welcome as well.
We decided to dine directly at Casa sul Lago, and it was a good surprise. The restaurant featured a somewhat
small but varied selection, with tasty food and properly sized servings: both the lasagne and the octopus salad were great, and so was the Catalan cream. It was very nice to discover that they were fully equipped with gluten free choices (one of us is on a gluten free diet): they even had gluten free pasta.
Breakfast featured a variety of choices, ranging from ham/cheese to cakes and cereals. They also had gluten free cereals and snack. The last day, since the main building was closed on Monday, they left a quite big breakfast in our room. We found an handwritten letter by Agnese along with the breakfast, which was a very kind gesture since she didn't have the chance to see us before the last morning.
The staff members are clearly passionate about their work, and do a great job in helping you, making you feel welcome and ultimately treating you like a friend. This place feature ad unique standard of service and friendliness, and I would therefore recommend it to anybody.
