The hotel was small. Very friendly and the location in town was excellent. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking. Each night when you go out you leave your room key and take the key to hotel in case it is locked when you get back. Thought that was very unique. The people were so nice and helpful. The bed was a bit hard, but not terrible. The shower was great and the bathroom was very clean. The proximity to the ferry and town center was perfect with a sidewalk along the lake. Would highly recommend Albergo Milano and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Pros: The hotel had about 8 rooms total. Very charming and on the water. Each room has an excellent view. You need to reserve parking. Loved the charm and would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to everything. Excellent restaurant.
Cons: No loved this hotel.

Pros: The staff was excellent. Everyone was very cheerful, helpful, and attentive. The rooms are clean and comfortable.The hotel is very easy to find and centrally located in the main square.
Cons: It was warm so we kept our windows open. The nearby church bells startled us awake a couple of times and the noise from the road and the bar across the street was a little loud on Fridays nights (Italians do like to stay out late - why I love Italy). I'd recommend perhaps adding ceiling fans to the rooms and guests could keep the window closed? Once the windows are closed the rooms are fairly quiet. Luckily we're night owls so it wasn't much of problem.
