Stayed in July for a week. The hotel is split into two and we stayed in the Speranza. The staff are excellent, very friendly and helpful. The staff in the restaurant are a joy and are always very friendly. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. We enjoyed staying at this hotel.

Stayed three nights in the Milan Au Lac side of this hotel. Room was a decent size but housekeeping left a little to be desired. Rooms are getting a bit dated now and need to be refurbished. Hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good but was served in a room that was too small for the number... More

We travelled to Milan Au Lac with Rail Discoveries.Unfortunately all-inclusive food was poor and unimaginative including tinned vegetables and potatoes and frozen croquette potatoes and chips; no coffee offered and bland "English food".Our room was comfortable and well appointed with excellent air conditioning and housekeeping, but as it was on the 1st floor lacked the" Lake view" we paid dearly...

Dear guest , we are really sorry you didn’t appreciate our restaurant, is so strange because our chef takes always great care to choose and cook fresh and good food. We serve coffe if requested, you can certainly imagine that we cannot offer coffe to all our guests. We thank you for the compliments about the room , the air... More

The best thing about this Hotel is it's location right in front of the lake and in the middle of town. Everything is easily accessible and the ferry terminal to all the islands is right opposite so it is very convenient. The Hotel consists of 2 buildings (Hotel Speranza au Lac and Hotel Milan Au Lac) with a pedestrian street... More

Stayed at the Speranza in Stresa and paid that little extra for a room with a lake view. Wow! Were we glad we did! The room was very well presented with a lovely bathroom, but the crowning glory was the view of the lake - stunning. The staff and facilities were excellent too, so all round an excellent place to...

We love this hotel. It is perfectly located to walk into the cute part of the town. Just step outside the hotel and you are in the main piazza with all the shops and restaurants. Make sure you have a lake view room. We sat out on our balcony and looked at the lake at all times of the day... More

Arrived by train and hotel is about 10 minute walk (downhill). Hotel is centrally located for restaurants and ferries to the various islands/locations on the lake. The staff on reception very helpful and welcoming. Room clean and good size - décor and fixtures and fittings are dated and would benefit from updating. Though no swimming pool on site there was...

We stayed at Milan Speranza au lac with our toddler. The location is excellent, right across the ferry that runs to isola bella and not far from restaurants and bars. We bid for a 4 star hotel on Priceline and got this hotel. When we checked in, they said that they only had lake facing rooms available (I had previously... More

The hotel is just in front of the boats Departure to the islands. The location is perfect for that. There is a parking included 5 minutes walking. The breakfast is also fair. The fruits were the top items for me as they were all very fresh and tasty. The front desk attendent is able to help in several languages. I... More

This nice hotel is situated right across the ferry and near the market square. Our room was small but had a great view of the lake. The staff is friendly but does not go out its way to help you. The breakfast was very good. We were looking for the hotel with a parking garage and were surprised to find... More
