If location, location, location is everything, then the Atlantic has it all. Its about an easy 25 minute drive to Malpensa airport, its only a short distance from the bus and train stations (about a 45 minute ride into Milan Cenrto), and only a short two block walk to the boat terminal where I believe you can still take the trip as far north as Locarno. I think every double room at the Atlantic has a balcony and a great view of the lake; rooms are clean, confortable and on the large size for Italy. Their resturant food is exceptionally good and their are many really good resturants in all price ranges within a five block walk ... and the promenade along the warterfront is unforgetable. Parking is reasonably easy unless there is a special event going on in town. A good spot for tourists and business people.
