Villa Isabella, now named Hotel Laurin, is one of the most well-preserved examples of art nouveau in Italy,
and offers a perfect blend of history and contemporary comfort.
The villa was built at the start of the 20th century by the Simonini family, who turned it into their private residence. Majestic and elegant, it has frescoes by Bertolotti and Landi, large wrought iron spirals and refined wooden inlay. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs was based in the premises during the Social Republic and in the 1960s Franco Rossi, the son of local hoteliers, bought it and turned it into a hotel, naming it Hotel Laurin. The Laurin is surrounded by a charming garden with sweet-smelling flowerbeds and shaded areas where it is possible to dine outdoors as early as spring.
A beautiful swimming pool enhances the garden and can be enjoyed throughout the day, from breakfast time through to evening and the time for sipping before-dinner drinks. Soak up the magical atmosphere of a bygone era throughout the hotel, be it in the reception area, bedrooms, meeting rooms or dining room.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff
Hotel Laurin is amazing, a complete one-off, a building of great beauty. Staying here felt a bit like a dream you were suddenly going to wake from.

4th visit and we will return
Great service, excellent food, comfortable rooms with stunning views and free parking! The town centre is an easy 15 minute stroll. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Salò."

Art Nouveau splendor in a magical setting.
The beautiful Art Nouveau architecture and decoration was a real plus for us, and it was great to see that it had been retained during the renovation of the bedrooms. Hotel Laurin is situated in a most beautiful spot , Salo is a lovely town with good restaurants and wonderful vistas. We experienced a wonderful start to our Italy visit, and the staff at the hotel were a massive part of our good experience.
