Old hotel with style, however.. deteriorating. Big rooms, not very clean. I spotted one of the hotel personell spraying some kind of insecticide on the carpet in the hallways (it also smelled like that). When he saw me, he quickly hid the can. Food is below average (breakfast &

Amazing location on top of a hill. It gives the feeling of private property with a big garden. The pool is rather small but the hotel has beautiful big rooms with view of the lake. Bathroom was spacious and breakfast was rich. We can only recommend this hotel.

We booked a suite, which was lovely. That being said, there was NO HOT WATER and not all of the taps worked. I then went to breakfast and due to illness I cannot eat gluten, dairy or meat. I asked if I could have an egg white omelette as there was literally nothing else I could

Response from Giorgio O, Responsabile reception at Palace Grand Hotel
Responded 1 Jan 2019
Dear Sarah, I am deeply sorry to have caused you a disservice during your stay at the Palace Grand Hotel in Varese. Unfortunately, the request for simultaneous hot water of 160 people that evening and the failure of a hydraulic pump, have meant that our hidraulic system could not meet our usual standards and in some rooms not enough hot water has arrived. I personally apologize to you, Giorgio Orsenigo, the reception manager. The problem was then promptly resolved, but I understand your discomfort well. As far as the breakfast buffet is concerned, I would like to remind you, as also indicated on the buffet, that we offer products for celiac or intolerant people, just ask our staff. Our buffet offers a wide range of foods, but for special extra requests we ask for a small additional cost. Unfortunately, the girls in the breakfast probably could not understand your discomfort, otherwise they would certainly have prepared what you requested, without any supplement. I was not really in the hotel at that time, otherwise I would have certainly apologized to you in person and I would have tried to fix any disservice properly. I ask you to believe me, I'm really sorry. I ask you to write to me personally at the hotel, to try and remedy our mistake. I wish you and your family a good start in 2019 and I would like to think that we will welcome you again here in Varese to fully demonstrate our potential and the quality that we almost always offer to our Guests.

Marvelous hotel sitting on a top of a hill with an outstanding view of the city and the lake. The building is of 1913 and you can feel the atmosphere of the elegance of the past almost everywhere. It is very well kept and we were lucky to be there when it was decorated for the

What is the easiest way to get from Milan airport to Palace Grand hotel, or Varese
You can take a train (Trenord) from Malpensa to Gallarate and change trains in Gallarate to Varese - about 1 hour trip. You can also take a taxi from Malpensa to Varese which should cost you approx €60. The connection Malpensa-Varese is indeed difficult. I would think there would also be a bus service. Enjoy your stay in Varese!

"Get a high floor room with views, both lake and mountain views are good. All are quiet and traffic free because of the hotels location."
"Room 214 was far nicer than room 424."
"Be very, very careful in room selection."
"High floor with a lake view."
"Ask for a room with a view of the lake"
