I went to Verbania for a long weekend to attend a wedding. I stayed in a single room, modest in size, but suitable enough for my needs. The water pressure for the tub/shower was good which was nice. Warning: bring your own toilet paper because the hotel uses cocktail size single sheets of hard paper towel in their dispensers.
The noise from the hallway or outside might annoy the unseasoned traveller.
The location is about a 30min walk along the water front to the centre of town, but I preferred that because I like the exercise. The lakeshore path is directly across the street from the hotel.
There is a grocery store 1 block away to get beverages and snacks...great place to go if you want to have a picnic. I didn't eat or use the bar at the hotel, so I can't comment on the food/service
The hotel staff was super friendly and spoke English fluently.
Note: you need to book your return shuttle to malpensa 48hours in advance, or you could be subjected to 2hr+ bus/trains. A taxi will cost you 120euro incl tip.
