“What a pleasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Having travelled around the world on business I often find myself unimpressed, on firsthand acquaintance, with so called "businessmen friendly" hotels. The Hotel di Varese actually both a first class business hotel and a perfect touring base for the Italian Lakes for holiday makers like us.

We came to Italy from one of the top boutique hotels in London which iis constantly getting accolades for its service but the staff at the Varese were genuinely friendly and couldn't have been more helpful and they are genuinely on. Par with the best.

If you are on holiday then I recommend that you stay in the purpose built villa behind the main hotel as it is very quiet and our room on the top floor was the only one on the second floor. Well equipped with two small balconies.

I am not one for crowded tourist destinations and Varese as a base was perfect. Easy access to the lakes and the pedestrian only gown centre was a few minutes walk away. We liked the feeling at dinner in the town that we were surrounded by locals rather than other tourists with the constant feeling, as in Verona, that the restaurants were just churning out the food for the visitors.

A beautifully renovated city center hotel, large rooms with all the amenities at a very reasonable price. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The owner also owns a great Enoteca in town on a lovely piazza, highly recommended.

Hotel di Varese is absolutely wonderful. The hotel is extremely clean and has very modern furnishings. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and most all speak fluent English. The room is very large with all new furnishings. They cleaned the room promptly everyday and they tidy up the room in the evening and place a small candy by your pillow. The breakfast is very fresh and has something for everyone: meats, cheeses, breads, pastries, fruit, and cereal. Also, cappuccino or expresso fresh made. There is a nice size courtyard, with small dining tables to enjoy your breakfast outside when the weather is nice. A full service bar is also available daily. They have private parking, which we never had trouble finding a parking space. The location is very near to the train station and many restaurants. Thank you Hotel di Varese for a wonderful stay!

Coming to the inner city of Varese everything seems to very crowdy, noisy and busy, but leaving the street to park in the baxhyard of the hotel, everything is more quiet and the atmosphere seems to be very inviting, like the staff too.
We can recommend this hotel: it is clean, has modern rooms, nice surroundings and especially it in a very short wlaking idstance to the historic inner city with the old cathedral and nice palces to drink an coffee (or two).

Room Tip: The rooms(like #23) in the new building in the backyard are very modern and quiet. This rooms are 5s...

Back in Varese, at the Hotel di Varese more than 2 years since we first discovered it.
Still the same warm welcome from staff and owners, and still the same outstanding attention to detail in design and maintenance which makes it such a pleasure to stay here. Though the hotel's restaurant is open only for breakfast, the staff have on several occasions arranged to have meals delivered (there's a good sushi restaurant just around the corner) when we've had young children with us and not wanted to leave the premises.
Quite outstanding for a hotel of this type, with well appointed bedrooms, easy parking, good breakfast and a small terrace for an early evening drink when the weather permits.

Room Tip: Some rooms in the upper floor have only roof windows ("Velux" type) so if you must have re...

Very good location, clean and modern hotel with very friendly staff.
The hotel is conveniently located at the historic center of Varese and you don't need a car.
The hotel is modern with well decorated rooms.
The bath is wide and comfortable and I can recommend this hotel for tourists and business.

Stayed here for a medical conference which was at ATA hotel. Glad I chose to stay here than at the other hotel (I borrowed a hotel bike to cycle the 2km ride). The hotel is well located to the central area with a number of good restaurants close by and a Carrefour a few blocks down the road. The staff are great-very helpful (particularly the lady with the red hair). Loved the stylish contemporary rooms and showers....so refreshing from some of the daggy old rooms you often see in Italy
