Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Since it opened its doors in 1907, the wonderful Hotel Eden has offered stellar levels of family service in one of Baveno's most enviable locations. Overseen by the warm and welcoming Luca Pagani and his family, the Eden is incredibly efficient and considers guest service absolutely tantamount. The decor of the hotel is simple, traditional and homely with hues of ivy, gold and cream scattered through the antique furniture and local artwork which lines the walls. Bedrooms are spacious, bright and airy with views of the lake, town and stunning nearby church. For guests on half board, both breakfast and dinner are taken in the delightfully quaint dining room complete with vintage fireplace and large bay windows looking out onto the lake. Should you wish to dine a la carte then you can do so at the Eden's public restaurant on the lakeside terrace perched over the water. Chef Luca who caters for both half board and a la carte creates some fantastic dishes including fresh fish, homemade pastas and decadent desserts such as creamy homemade panna cotta and sumptuous gelato. All dishes have the perfect wine to compliment them taken from the Pagani family cellar and can be served with dinner or at the small bar which opens up onto the terrace so you can sit during the day and live 'La Dolce Vita' with an Aperol in hand or watch the sunset with a cool glass of rose in the evenings.
