We stayed in a lake-view room, and the view is worth it! Very nice hotel: amazing location, modern facilities, decorated with taste, very friendly staff, good breakfast, good quality for price. Only small defects: rooms not very clean and soundproof, bed not extremely comfortable, restaurant can get crowded and noisy some nights.

My husband and I stumbled onto this hotel when searching for a place to stay along our travels from Italy to Switzerland. At first we had a difficult time finding the hotel but once we did it was well worth it!! The hotel staff is amazing! We checked in at the front with the owners daughter who was pleasant and...

The view from the rooms together with the kindness of the personnel are the only good things of this hotel/Restaurant. We have been here one night, having Dinner and breakfast. The Restaurant serves very little portions for very large prices. Breakfast Buffet has very little choice, even though good quality. Rooms don't have the same standard, even though the same...

Our room was nicely decorated and very modern with a beautiful view of Lago Maggiore. We had no issues with parking; when the lot was full a hotel staff...

Down below is the lake and the town, up above is the giant statue of San Carlo which attracts coach loads of tourists. We were unfortunate to have a room overlooking the road (and a very busy one it was), and...

It was our first stay at this hotel with a fabulous location on Lake Maggiore. Our room had the tiniest balcony, but it was enough for two! The picture window gave a beautiful view of the lake. The room was well appointed, comfortable and quiet; the staff were really kind. We enjoyed lunch and dinner during our stay, and it...

My husband and I stayed one night here on our way driving from Germany to France. It was a great break for us. The hotel is located on a quiet section of Lago Maggiore, and the surrounding areas were sleepy and gorgeous. You can't walk to the beach from this hotel, but it's a short drive down the hill. Our...

My boyfriend and I came to eat at lunch at San Carlo Hotel. We were welcomed by the manager who was very kind and brought us at our table. The food was excellent, the view wonderful and the staff very lovely and fast. We will certainly come again.
