Opposite the ferry terminal, next door to the tourist info office and the main restaurants are behind this hotel, this is a location that would be hard to beat. The staff were very helpful to us and lots of people, including us, ask for extra pillows which they happily fetch. We had a corner room at the back st one... More

Hotel is older, but all is comfortable. View is lake was worth the extra price, and cost less than in other hotels facing the lake front. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location excellent for catching ferries and walking the town.

Recently stayed at the Milan Au Lac for a few days, and it was a good experience. We stayed on the third floor with a lake and mountain view, which is well worth the extra charge. Beds were comfortable, and room was clean. Breakfast is very good as well. Wifi was consistently good, though we had friends who were staying... More

Stresa was our first stop on a two-week trip to Italy and we spent two nights here. We took a shuttle service from the Milan airport. I had made a reservation online and the shuttle was right on time and took us about an hour to get to Stresa. There is nothing like driving down the mountain as you approach... More

We had a room with a lovely laneway view. I had almost changed it to a lake view, but am glad I didn't as we spent a lot of time in and beside the lake - so it was nice to have the view we did. Many restaurants and shops on the hotel's doorstep. The boat for the islands is... More

We have been to the Milan Speranza over the past 25 years and always find the staff warm and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful - we had a gorgeous view of the lake. The bathrooms have been updated and are lovely.

Hotel “Milan Speranza au Lac” in Stresa is situated on the Piazza Marconi near to the tourist port that permits easy access to the boats that could transfer the tourists to the famous Isola Bella. The hotel is one beautiful classical building that inscribes itself very well in the aristocratic spirit of the town. The hotel offers elegant and enough... More

The location is great. But that's the only great thing about this hotel. Other than that it is average or even below. Very old hotel and room. Bad water pressure in the shower. I guess the leaks in the shower tube didn't help. No mini bar fridge. No balcony.. Two single beds that were put together although we specifically asked... More
