The breakfast was Ok. Same every day. Typical continental . The family who run it are not very friendly. You have to talk to them. Really missed... More

Location is excellent, right opposite the ferry terminal, close to the town square and plenty of restaurants nearby. Apart from that though, nothing special. Small rooms - biggest problem was the lack of plug points. Staff is ok. Breakfast was also ok. Good enough for a quick hop into Stresa. But I'm sure there are better options down the road... More

If you are looking for a hotel with a lake view, you can't beat this one in value for money. There is a lift that serves the first 4 floors - we were on the 4th floor and the views were spectacular. If you have a car you can park across the street at a reduced day rate. The rooms... More

Cons: Welcome could have been friendlier, however didn't spoil our stay. Room which we had (63) was a bit noisy due to people walking up the stairs and water pipes from other showers in the hotel so got woken up at 7am. Pros: breakfast was good and young lady was nice who served us coffee. Hotel was immaculate as far... More

1. Most of the hotel floors are not served by a lift, so you'll be lugging your bags up and down each day. 2. My room didn't have any electric sockets save for an unusable one tucked away behind the TV. How do you charge your iPhone, camera? 3. The shower water temperature undulates from warm to cold in an... More

Basic 3* accommodation but perfectly adequate. Good, clean en suite rooms. Very courteous staff. Great location, close to bus and ferry stops and to local shops and just across the road from the lake. Some evening noise from the entertainment in the town square which typically ends between 11pm and midnight. No Wifi.

This has to be one of the most beautiful places on planet. Stresa is to lake Maggiore what Bellagio is to lake Como and this as good a place to wake up to this wonderful view as any.It literally took my breath away every morning. It was central with the ferries right in front and short walks to beautiful views... More
