Recent guest reviews

We stayed many different times in this hotel. my husband loves to stay on the corner room om the 3rd floor. The hotel is a historial building, a bit old but well maintained. We loved "Marco" the waiter who does other jobs also, he is very attemptive, fun and courteus staff. we keep coming back and asking for him , he is always there , from many years ! Really a great location on the top of a hill close to downtown ! we recommend it !

Excellent location, worth a trip just to visit it. You will live few days in a "debut du siecle XX Grand Hotel " Excellent room, friendly and professional personnel both at the restaurant, reception and room service. I enjoied a nice dinner, excellent service.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night this week. The hotel is set in a beautiful park on a hill. I is a beautiful hotel but has seen better days. The outside has not been maintained which is not a surprise due to the low prices for the rooms. The staff was very welcoming and the room was rennovated and had a very pleasant feel to it. We dined at this hotel as well and were very happy with our meal which was well prepared.

This is a very grand hotel on top of a hill. It's a little old and jaded and is probably past its best. That said it is still grand. The rooms are spacious and clean, the breakfast is very good and the staff are fantastic. I would have loved to have stayed here in its hayday. They have a free shuttle to the town which I never tried but if you don't Like walking hills you will need it. Some of the views especially from the restaurant are fantastic. It's also situated I a lovely part of the world.

The Palace Grand Hotel was one of the highlights to my trip to northern Italy. Although Varese is usually not on the list of tourist destinations, it was an amazing addition to my trip to Milan. Truly, as other reviews have stated, it is worth visiting Varese just to stay at this hotel. The room was very spacious with comfortable beds and a stunning view of the town and the lake. The bar and common areas were grand palatial rooms and the staff were extremely helpful. Also, make sure to contact the hotel and arrange a transfer to and from the town center as they offer a very comfortable Mercedes van and a driver for your convenience.

I loved this turn of the century art nouveau hotel. It is a trip back in time. The rooms are spacious with large remodeled bathrooms. The views of lake Varese are breathtaking and the staff is formal and so gracious. The food was outstanding. They should charge more. It is worth well worth it.

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 shops. If you prefer not to walk then the Palace Grand shuttle will take you. We visit this area often and look forward to our next stay at the Palace Grand hotel. The perfect get away!!!

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 brioche) + the light music creates the right atmosphere same as the highly sophisticated and helpful staff. Large garden is perfect for summer night walks and the outside terrace is the place to be to really experience the "Grand" feeling.

Stayed for two night while visiting the mv agusta factory near by. Received two weary motorcycle riders with no prejudice.excellent room & breakfast. The decor was classy with excellent views and made stay on the whole a very grand experience

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 a good sign I think! Buffet breakfast was excellent, with something for everyone, dishes replenished in good time, and we were never hurried out. We had dinner on two nights, and the food and wine were very, very good. The public areas are really beautiful and make one feel really special. In warm sunny weather there are plenty of places to sit around the outside of the building. We found a path down to street level and so did not have to walk down the very long drive. We didn't make use of the outdoor facilities, but they looked fine. I didn't give an 'excellent' rating due to the fact that some things are sorely in need of improvement - for example some stair carpet on the stunning stairway is really past it in some areas and soon will be a hazard - but I imagine these things are renewed on a regular basis and I hope that this will be better on our next visit. And we really do hope to return to this hotel, and hope to enjoy the next visit as much as our first.
