The Palace Grand Hotel in Varese is a dream. A stay in the Palace is very special. The hotel grounds are majestic and inviting; the rooms are large and well decorated. We enjoyed the breakfast which was served in pure elegance. The staff was very nice too. The downtown is just minutes walking where you can find numerous restaurants and...

From the very first moment you get the "Grand" impression... from the driveway, through the front park with tall, majestic trees towards the entrance and the reception. Everything is organized in one classical style. Rooms are spacious with a historical impression, comfortable beds and large bathrooms. Breakfast/Dinning room is enchanted-like, really classical with typical selection of Italian breakfast (Cappuccio e...

Dear Mark we are grateful for your kind words and for having stressed publicly that you found here at the Palace Grand Hotel Varese something more 'of a classic hotel, but rather' a "second home" where you could rest and recuperate in total tranquility. Our home is 'always open to anyone who like ... We wish you a happy new...

We spent three nights at this truly 'grand' hotel in the middle of September and we loved every moment. Our spacious and well appointed fifth floor room had a view to the lake. We slept so soundly in the quiet room, in the comfortable bed that we had to rush down to breakfast before the end of service - always...

We were on our way back to the UK and we needed to stay somewhere for the night. Before Milan we stopped and tried to call a few hotels, hostels if they have any avaliable rooms for three.

This is a lovely grand building with wonderful old-world charm splendidly located among a charming garden on top of a hill. However - a modern up-to-date hotel it is not. The rooms are very basic and in desperate need of an upgrade. The furnishings are worn and tired and the shower barely functional. No air-conditioning makes the rooms very stuffy...

Hotel is very nice. Old glory and very nice view. But if you want to eat, please don't stay at the hotel restaurant. Food is all frozen and far to expensive. We had the fried fish with vegetables. No taste at all! And it was fried to lang and black.....to bad for a 4* hotel.
