Old fashioned hotel furnished with interesting antique items in particular warming pans of copper all displayed on the walls down the beautiful wrought iron and marble staircase.Well worth exploring the hotel to look at the different items contained within.There are two buildings to the hotel and we were booked in here as part of a Treyn tour to Stresa from...

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

Have stayed at this hotel twice this year - once in July and again in September - love it x Location on the main Piazza was perfect as walking distance and just opposite the ferries to the islands. Lovely large rooms beautifully furnished and we had a room facing the lake with a small balcony. The staff were incredibly helpful... More

The location of this hotel is excellent for a hotel without grounds, lake facing, in Stresa town centre, and close to the ferry and coach stops. The view from the front of the hotel over Lake Maggiore and the mountains beyond is stunning! Many rooms have little balconies. The hotel is on the street, but the lakeside promenade gardens are...

Dear Guest, thank you for taking time to write this detailed review! It is true that here you won’t find a modern hotel but a more traditional and “old worldly” place. It is exactly this kind of style what keeps alive the original charm that made Stresa a picturesque destination over the past century. You’re right to remind to everyone... More

This hotel was selected for us by our Cosmos tour. The location of this hotel is excellent, across the road from the lake. The room was small but clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. My only issue was the lack of fridge in the room nor a kettle to make a cup of tea. This was common across Italy, is... More
