Reviewed 10 June 2014

Excellent hotel and service. Our room with large balcony overlooking the lake was extremely comfortable. The complimentary bowl of fruit and box of confectionery was a nice touch as were the excellent toiletries provided in the bathroom. Towels, bathrobes and even slippers were changed daily and the room kept in immaculate condition by the very efficient and friendly staff. We like trying local restaurants, but did have dinner in the hotel restaurant twice. Both meals were very satisfactory and again the service was helpful and efficient. Throughout the hotel, it seemed that the guests came first, which is, I know, as it should be, but often is not. Thank you Hotel Dino for a very enjoyable stay. Almost forgot to mention the great indoor pool and spa and sauna.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and felt that the junior suite was well worth the cost. Lakeside views re...

Very beautiful hotel overlooking Lake Maggiore and very central to everything.
We were lucky as far as hotel price for the night as we arrived in Baveno late and tired after riding a motorcycle all day and pulled up there and thought this will do and so we enquired on price, when they told us price we thought we would go check some other places out and then they decided to do us a deal and we got a beautiful room for a reduced cost, guess better having someone in a room for less than no one at all....thanks so much we helped each other out.
The staff were very friendly and very helpful during our stay.
The rooms were absolutely beautiful and our balcony room overlooked the mountains and lake, absolutely breath taking. The rooms had everything that you needed, plenty of room and very luxurious, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Although we only had a motorbike, there was still a charge to park the bike at hotel for the night. Also wifi is not free, well guess you do get a short time free if you wait until after 9pm but not long enough so does cost you.
Breakfast not included so have to pay for it.
Overall fantastic place to stay though.
Recommend it if you have the money to spare and want luxury.

Directly overlooking Lake Maggiore with elegant gardens, lobby and rooms, this hotel offers a unique and charming experience with great views of the Borromeo gulf and islands. The views from the restaurants, bars and the open-air terrace will leave memories of an unforgettable journey. Live piano music each evening and attentive and cheerful bar staff will make you wish you could stay in this idyllic location longer. With indoor and outdoor swimming pools, views, gym. sauna, Turkish bath, solarium, massage room and Jacuzzi it covers most of the things you would expect for your well-being. It also has a hidden treasure - an underground tunnel whose walls are lined with copies of many famous artworks. This tunnel leads to the hotel next door so you can walk all the way along the tunnel admiring the artwork and then return to Dino via the street. Don't miss this hidden treasure if you are staying in the area. A large hotel, extremely well run and brilliant location. On our bucket list to return for longer one day soon.

Room Tip: A room with a view is always good but if you don't get lucky enjoy the tunnel and feel as if you...

Stayed for 3 nights a little before the high season in this spectacular location. There is a lot to recommend it in terms of physical features, services, the ability to cope with breakfast for very large numbers and so on. However, given the price range, some things were just mean. Wifi for example is free for the first 2 hours only and you can't open the mini-bar without paying a €10 fee. Breakfast

Room Tip: if you get the choice ask for a lake side view. inevitably, some rooms overlook the car park or Kitc...

The Grand Hotel Dino is wonderfully located right on Lake Maggiore in Baveno, Italy with a balcony view of the lake and within easy walking distance of the primary boat dock. The lobby is elegant and spacious and beautifully decorated. Our room was lovely with cloth wall coverings and a marble floor in the bathroom. It was very small,however, and the two of us couldn't walk between the bed and the wall at the same time. There were a few other annoyances: wifi was not free and, once paid for, could be used by only one device at a time; the air conditioning was not on yet for the summer so we had to keep the balcony door open for air circulation, letting in noise and mosquitoes. The property is large and hosts conventions and special events so a cozy feel is not part of the experience. Our time in the lake view bar was shared with reps from Suzuki Marine and our balcony overlooked a wedding reception in the late afternoon. It is also quite expensive.
