You can not miss the chance to sleep at this Hotel which is full with history and elegance. It's a epic experience not only the rooms, but the lobby, the bar with the Hemingway drink even the bar man was willing to do a cocktail which was not knowing in Italy just to please us. The service is good only... More

This place is all about elegance. Situated across the street from the western shores of Lago Maggiore with a view of the Islands for which it is named. I got a great value room, deciding not to splurge for a lakeview room. The service is impeccable--all about relaxing and being taken care of. The building itself shows great workmanship: The...

An art gallery on every floor giving you a taste of Italian culture throughout history and amazing architecture everywhere you look from the solid marble statues and carved lift surrounds to the plaster reliefs in the bathrooms. For those that appreciate the finer things

A hugely impressive grand hotel built on Lago Maggiore in Stresa, Italy, it is difficult to miss and impossible not to love. Save for this treat as it is expensive but it is well worth the effort. The staff is well trained and, with a few younger exceptions, eager to please. The dining room expenses may be reduced by ordering... More

Sometimes you say it best when you don't say much, and what else is there to say about this place other than the best? We got to Stresa and parked the car somewhere down by the lake for €10 for 24 hours, which we thought was an amazing deal, because we thought there was no way on EARTH a hotel... More

The visit began well with an upgrade to a room with a lake view - although the view to the gardens and mountain behind the hotel is also beautiful. But the view of the lake and the Borromeo islands from the 4th floor balcony was breathtaking. The staff were all friendly and helpful especially in the restaurant. Of course we... More

Just made a romantic getaway to Lago Maggiore and arrived in Stresa (reccommeded by a friend from the region). While driving through this lakeside town we stumbled across the Grand Hotel and knew instantly where we needed to stay. Quick and efficient check in. We got a room with a lake view on the 2nd floor. The room is quaint,... More

Fantastic view from lake view room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice restaurant and superb breakfast. Close to town centre. It was very overpriced and there was no kettle in room, but overall it was very nice.
