We arrived at Milan Malpensa airport quite late in the evening so we wanted a place not far from the airport where we could easily find whislt driving in the dark, so we booked this place.
However, it wasn't that easy to locate it using the over simple map posted on the hotel's website. Somehow we drove to the Arona from another direction and had to stop and asked for direction for going back to Dormelletto. If you're also driving there, it's better to get the directions with more details by either emailing them or using the google map. That's my advice.
Other than that, our short stay at this hotel was nice.
The plus: the room was modern and clean, but a bit small; shower was great; our room was very quiet even though the hotel was by the main road -- maybe it's because we were given a room facing inwards; breakfast offered descent varieties but remained largely continental style.
The best thing was if you're patient enough to wait until mid-night, you can smell nice bakery from the groud floor -- the guy at the reception was obviously very multi-task and he was baking bread and croissants at 1am!
The minus: the map provided on the hotel's website wasn't very helpful; it's a bit pricey -- 75 euro for a double room in late Nov in a place where there's no view (we paid less later for places just next to the lakes!) but then there's not many choices.
In all, it's a good place for a short stay.
