I have to say that Croce di Malta is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in Novara, the owners are wonderful people, they treat you with excellency and make you feel just right at home and they are very kind, the rooms are very clean and neat, I highly recommend everybody to stay at la Croce di Malta!

Croce di Malta has friendly and efficient staff and the hotel is spotlessly clean. The breakfast has a good variety and coffee is made freshly for each guest. The location in Novara is central to all the attractions of this delightful city, especially walking around the historical centre and the markets a few hundred metres away (3 times each week) A train from Novara to Milano takes about 25 minutes and this makes Novara a cheaper option for sightseeing, even through to Venice on the same line. Perhaps for Venice you could stay at Padua close by, again much cheaper accommodation than in Venice itself.

Room Tip: I loved the attic room on the third floor although the lift only goes to the second floor. The amenities are great, including free wifi in the room

We were pleasantly surprised by the room's quality and size. The hotel is situated on a busy junction with traffic lights which means there can be a lot of traffic noise particularly early morning. It's the trucks and buses pulling away which create the rumbling vibrations. There was no parking on site but the receptionist is well versed in directing you to local parking spaces. You need to park around the corner outside some shops till 6 pm or so when the commuters move away. Then you can park for free in a side road across the street. You can stop outside for unloading.

The main attraction is the Basilica within walking distance. The town centre is pedestrianised and has a number of al fresco bars and coffee shops. An attractive, vibrant place.

For eating we can definitely recommend a local trattoria. Turn right out of the hotel, 1st right and walk to the bottom of the slope. Diagonally right is a collonade where the restaurant is. We had a set meal of 3 excellent fish dishes for around 30 euros.

Breakfast was OK but nothing spectacular.

All in all a good hotel.

The Croce di Malta is located in the center of Novara, just opposite one of the numerous parks that fill this charming 19th-century city less than an hour west of Milan. I prepaid on-line for a small attic room, which was perfect for a single traveller. As occurs in Italian buildings, the elevator did not go all the way to the top floor, so I did have to carry my suitcase up the final short flight; this might present a challenge to some travellers. Breakfast was adequate and was served in an underground salon. The spartan atmosphere is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5; otherwise this hotel is a very good bargain and centrally located for tourism or business.
