Atahotel Varese4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We visited the AtaHotel Varese as a part of our tour of Europe and as it was our 30th anniversary, we were staying in a mix of 4 star and 5 star hotels and to be fair, the Varese stop was an extra stop between Fussen in Germany and Cogne in Italy and as it was only a 3 hour drive to our next 'proper' destination and it was a 4 star hotel, we thought perfect. The hotel is new and very modern and looked great, our reception from Alfredo, was great, we decided to spend some time by the pool and Matteo who went out of his way to serve us drinks (they do not serve beer in glasses at the pool and they did not have plastic 'beer glasses' to serve beer at the pool??? Any Matteo, worked something out and we had beer.... Then all downhill really... The bedroom was OK and the bed comfortable although a view of the horse racing track was a tad woeful and is not a view to sell the room by. However, the reminder of the hotel, need some serious customer service training. Unfortunately the hotel restaurant is woeful, the menu for a 4 star hotel was 'childlike' with,Very limited choices of food and wine, the tables in the restaurant had a knife and fork (we wanted a 3 course meal), there were no condiments on the table and there were only 7 guests in the reastuarant... We sat down and wanted to order starters and was told by a Basil Fawlty style waiter, no we could not order that as a starter it was a first course order only and we had to stick to anti pasta course or order mains only... with a choice of a very limited number of starters we elected to order main courses only... The Lamb chops I ordered and the risotto my wife ordered was delivered to us, but the food was not even 'warm' in fact the lamb chops were so rare, they could have run off of the plate..... We asked for the waiter and were ignored for 5 minutes and in the end I have to 'shout' to get Basil Fawlty to come over, he then took our food back to the kitchen, 10 minutes later, my food was put back in front of me.... As I was eating 'with' my wife, we waited and waited and after 5 minutes, we elected to leave, the service was shoddy and the food woeful... We made a complaint to were informed of a restaurant nearby, (apparently they get a lot of business from the hotel and we can recommend Enzo's restaurants, good Italian food a good prices) who would stay open to service us, some 10 minutes walk away... We walked and had good food, but were very disappointed as we wanted to stay in the hotel and had no intention of leaving to eat out... When we got back, we were told that fruit had been delivered to our room as an apology, which was kind. But, the standards of a NON 4 star hotel showed again when the cutlery sent to us with the fruit was 'dirty' and unwashed, the final straw really. We left in the morning, (no sign of a Manager, who should have been called to deal with us) we did not pay for the meal, but our room was bed and breakfast and we would not have eaten breakfast as we would dread to know what was wrong with the food... Really disappointed with the hotel in Varese and whilst it is a OK hotel to stay in, expect poor food and poor service in the 'cafe'
Pleasant place to stay. Clean rooms. Good variety for breakfast. Internet works fine. An excellent place for business/conventions. Courtesy and helpful staff must also be mentioned. Situated in the back of Varese's horse race track, it is not very distant from downtown area and jst about an hour drive from Malpensa airport.
I recommend this hotel. Rooms are big and perfect for work. Staff is helpful especially Luisito :) There is gym. 15 minutes walking to the city center. Breakfast are good and wifi. There is big parking, So there is no problem with car parking. Joanna
Hotel is situated in a good location, close enough to the multinational I worked for. Room was cosy and comfortable. Staff was also professional and helpful (i.e. one day the heating was not working properly and the staff immediately fixed it). Also in the bar/restaurant, an employee called Francesco was professional and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good and at reasonable price - the only issue was that sometimes we had to wait a bit too long. The people in the reception also very helpful. Overall, I had a good experience, I enjoyed my stay and could focus on my work. Thank you!
This hotel is 45- 1 hour from Malpensa air port. Hotel is nice. Tried restaurant food and it was great. Rooms are specious and nice. Staff is friendly. You get few restaurants when you walk about 5-10 minutes.
Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights, had a comfortable stay. staffs were friendly. Room was clean and big. however, if you want to explore anything outside hotel, there is nothing. i didnt find any restaurant or market near to the hotel. Hotel food was not good and it can be approved with some additional items on the card.
Very nice, modern facility, clean and comfortable for a rather inexpensive rate! Very surprised with the quality of the place and well served breakfast with included! Lounge area with modern sitting and bar. Rooms are top class. Bathroom and shower with ample room, American standard! Perfect for business, room has a desk, well equipped with outlets, comfortable chair and work area.
Very comfortable stay in large room with reception and restaurant during dinner always ready to answer all the questions and desires. Breakfast is a kind of uncomfortable environment... absolutely to refund... on service and food offer
It was my first stay at this hotel abd I'd like to confirm all the positive opinions about it. Rooms are comfortable, clean and well equipted. What is really lovely is balcoon where you can rest with a glass of wine in the evening. Bar downstairs has a variety list of drinks. I haven't visit a swimming pool due to lack of time but I've heard is really ok. Breakfasts - fresh, tasty placed in a big restaurnat so you don't feel tightly even when there is a lot of guests. According to the hotel location - it was like 20-25 minutes walking to the old town in Varese, so it is not that far (especially on the way back after pizza / pasta) ;-) I recommend it for a stay! Best regards to the very nice stuff in Atahotel!
I had a chance to stay there for two nights. The room was good and clean. The service is good as well. The stuff are friendly. The breakfast was good (not excellent) with many items such as fruit, yogurt, egg, honey ...etc The location is little bit far from any activities or from Lugano if you decide to go there. The price paid for the room worth the value
