Truly 5 star! The pool is wonderful, the breakfast is outstanding and the rooms are very comfortable. If there was one drawback, it's that you take a chance of smelling cigarette smoke when you open your windows at night. Most all rooms are NOT smoke free.

I just stayed at Dino for a weekend. It is a great hotel in many ways: Large and comfortable rooms with lovely beds, great food and drinks, outside area, and friendly staff. Dino has it all. They also have indoor parking and a pool. The passanger ferry terminal is just outside the gate.

Let's start with what what good. Great location on the lake with amazing views. The bar was very nice and service was OK. Parking and even charging your car is free... So that's the good; now the bad. When I booked the hotel it advertised having multiple restaurants. When we arrived it had one as all the others were blocked booked by huge tour parties that domminated the hotel and the sister hotel it was attached to. As a result we we ate in the only option available having arrived fairly late from Switzerland. I would characterise that restaurant (Last Hall Restaurant) as the worst food and service that I think I have ever experienced. I asked for a cocktail to which I was told that they couldn't do cocktails despite us sitting maybe 20m from one of the hotel bars. We ordered mains off the menu which came suspiciously quickly - becuase they had clearly been sitting for quite some time. Inedible. Worst food since I was at school at a child of 10 in the UK. Yes, the UK. I complained at which point the waiter basically said, yes I could see that was awful. But they still served it to us. We ended up having a toasted cheese sandwich at the bar - wasn't exactly what we were aiming for as part of our 28th anniversary trip. Aside from that, the rooms were tiny (although again, the views were great). No coffee or tea making facilities and no mini bar (blamed on covid?) The basic sense you got was that if you were not in one of the main groups then you should consider yourself lucky to be there. Several parts of the main hotel (Grand Dino) seemed to be blocked off and the shared pool was mobbed. I would say three star hotel at best but charging 4 star prices. I will go back to the area which is amazing but not to this hotel

The location is really good in front of the lake. The outer space is also very good BUT if you choose room for single use prepare yourself to be shocked!!!! Really small bed really small room. I paid for four nights. If I knew the dimensions I would have stayed only one. So if you travel solo avoid it. There are no twin rooms for single use unless you are overcharged!! Also I have to point out that people on charge (I believe it was the owner but I am not sure) seemed not to be interested to understand and not willing to help at all. I felt very disappointed.

The Grand Hotel Dino sits right on Lago Maggiore and maximizes its location. There is a nice lobby bar and restaurants facing the lake and our room had a balcony which provided great views of the Borromean Islands. In addition to several pools, there’s a dock from which one can swim in the blue waters of the lake. Beyond the lobby, the grand qualities fade considerably. There was no bell man or concierge. The guest floors and rooms are decorated in grand style but finishes are worn and the rooms need updating. There was no desk in our room and the shower enclosure leaked badly. There was an odd mix of toiletries in the bathroom, which were not replaced every day. The hairdryer looked and functioned like one from the 70’s. The mini bar was not stocked but still required use of the room keycard to open it. There were no glasses provided; there were four paper cups wrapped in plastic(!) in the room when we arrived but they were not restocked during our five day stay. Drinking wine out of a paper cup from the lovely balcony certainly is not the same experience a glass would provide. In general, many of the little luxuries one associates with a grand hotel are missing at what perhaps should be called the Formerly Grand Hotel Dino. It’s a fine place for a conference or a tour stop, which seem to provide much of its business these days, but it really is not a grand hotel.

Ignore the stated price. What Internet? Pay more? Coffee in your room? No facilities - pay more? Iron a darned shirt. Not safe apparently. Pay more. I cannot say it loudly enough - avoid like the plague. Stuck here for four more days and really wish I wasn't.

Loved this hotel, my only negative comment is that the wi fi was not unlimited. The location is gorgeous, perfect to walk around and enjoy Bavena and Lake Maggiore. We had a room with a balcony facing the lake, it was really nice! Bedroom and bathroom were super comfy, pretty and clean. Breakfast was included and was quite nice. It’s a very nice hotel to stay in.

View was great BUT….air conditioning didn’t work, we turned down the air to the lowest setting with no change. Mentioned to front desk but no improvement. Beds were hard as a rock. Very cheap mattresses Mine had a plastic protective cover on it.

plus points: Very friendly reception on arrival. The staff (except management) is friendly all the way through. The rooms are great, the lake view is fantastic. A really large parking garage is available. The facilities are very well maintained and clean. Great location, a few steps into town. Still neutral points: Breakfast is OK, good quality salamis and ham, poor quality and very small selection of cheese (only slices). Tea unfortunately only tea bags and pots with not quite hot water. In the room (junior suite) no possibility to make tea or coffee. The minus points: On arrival on 31.08. we were told that from 01.09. there would be no more restaurant service. On the second, third and fourth evening extremely loud disco operation until late at night - complaints were not taken seriously: neither was offered to move to a more distant room (we were directly in the room above the "disco room"), nor were we offered a drink at the bar or even a discount as a small compensation. At check out not a word like "thank you", "come back soon" or similar. Conclusion: The management is completely out of their depth. Instead of distributing the rooms from the beginning so that the (known) noise disturbance is low, they do not even react to complaints. Completely inappropriate reaction at check out instead of goodbye. The Dino was always a dream, a "grand hotel" - that was once and is now history. Such a hotel has to think carefully whether it wants to be a disco or a grand hotel.
