We stayed in the Hotel Milan building; the other couple we were traveling with stayed in the Speranza. Rooms in both buildings were adequate; we did have two mechanical problems with our room, but these were taken care of timely when reported to the front desk. The front desk personnel were also helpful with finding restaurants and ATM's, etc. The... More

We walked from the Station - a fair distance walk but reasonably easy in 10 minutes. The hotel is old but out rooms were more than adequate. The staff could not have been more helpful. (they kept helping me get internet access), spoke excellent "Australian" and willingly offered advice on the local area transport and tour options. The buffet breakfast... More

Enjoyed our two night stay at the Milan Speranza Au Lac in Stresa. Didn't realize until we checked in that there are two buildings, side by side. There is a red colored building and an orange building. We stayed in the orange one. We hadn't paid the extra for a room with a view. We were at the back of... More

Loved our week long visit to Stresa at end of September and enjoyed Hotel Milan au Lac in room 354 enormously. For our tastes we found everything there thoroughly pleasing, elegant surroundings, comfortable room excellently serviced, fine restaurant, delightful staff. Just one little niggle, there seemed to be no bartender after any dinner time when we were there but perhaps... More

Attentive and helpful staff, the room was very comfortable with a great view over the lake. Breakfast buffet was good and always being refreshed. Staff very knowledgeable about the local area and transport. We travelled by train and you do have to go down a hill to get to the hotel, but plenty of taxis at the station if required.... More

Stayed here in August on a Treyn holiday. The hotel is right on the lake and is a nice clean place. We had rooms on the top floor with fabulous views of the lake. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and meals were in the restaurant in the adjoining hotel. There were always second helpings if required. Stresa... More

We stayed here a week. Location is brilliant, right opposite the ferry terminal and round the corner from the shops and restaurants. We paid extra for a lakeside room and it has to be done because to wake up to that view is heaven. The food was really good and the pasta first course was always fantastic and so much... More

Stayed for 3 nights on half board basis. We had typical continental breakfast with the addition of boiled egg which could get cold if you were late coming down for breakfast. The evening meal was satisfying and tasty but we missed the salad bar. We had a nice spacious room with a small balcony. We had a good sized bathroom... More
