Good, small hotel with lovely views. Many rooms facing lake, with balconies so that you can enjoy the stunning location. Rooms are good sized, clean and comfortable. Breakfast choices good, home made cakes each day, fresh fruits. A little gem, at very good value price.

The San Carlo hotel provides excellent value for money as a B&B: Room is quite spacious, clean, with a comfortable bed. The view from the restaurant terrace is wonderful and a fabulous place to enjoy breakfast which is better than average. Only real shortcoming, no pool. We did not eat lunch or dinner at the restaurant.

The San Carlo hotel provides excellent value for money as a B&B: Room is quite spacious, clean, with a comfortable bed, and we even got a room with a huge private terrace with a magnificent view of the Lago Maggiore - all for the basic price of EUR 100 for the night. I would assume prices to rise sharply in the Summer season. But with this location, and proximity to the Milan Airport - Malpensa, the San Carlo is a great find in the southern part of the lake - in Ancona. However, when you hear the sentence "I have ristorante" at check-in: Be aware, nod, smile, and quickly come up with an excuse for not making a dinner reservation: Already eaten; not hungry; made a previous arrangement at a different restorant, etc. Unfortunately, we did not, and ended up with the worst "gourmet meal" ever experienced in Italy. From the menu and its prices, you look forward to each course. From the first taste you wish you could leave immediately, and by the end of the meal you have sworn to not eat again for a long time. And by the time you shall check out, you realize that your unfortunate visit to the restaurant ended up costing you more than the night at the hotel! So in short: Excellent stay at the hotel if you stay away from the culinary offerings of the restaurant.

The hotel is on the top of a hill, right across the street where stands the statue of San Carlo (beautiful point of interest, by the way). Breakfest is good, but do not expect a very wide array of options. Very very very quiet at night. Room is clean, with a nice terrace. Bathroom is good but the shower space is really tight for a guy my size (not a basketball player but not a race driver as well).
