We saw this hotel nearly 15 years ago on our last trip here and dreaned of staying there some day. Well, they did not disappoint. This time, we brought our two children, ages 11 and 14 with us to Stresa and the hotel wowed us all. We had a suite overlooking the lake and the view and wrap around balcony... More

We stayed here in August of 2014 and had an amazing time. The location of the Hotel is perfect and the rooftop pool and bar is a must see. Unlike other reviewers we never had any issue accessing the rooftop or it being closed for private events, perhaps we got lucky. The rooms and grounds were clean and beautiful. The... More

We stayed at the La Palma Hotel in July 2014. It was the perfect hotel! The location was ideal for walking to all parts of town. What sets this hotel apart from other seemingly grander hotels are the unique amenities. The rooftop is incredible for 360 degree views, reasonably priced cocktails or bottle of bubbly and relaxing in the large... More

We stayed here from the end of June for 2 weeks. It has taken me a while to write the review because I didn't want to be unfair. SO, I will start with the positives. The hotel is in a lovely position with wonderful views across the lake. There is an easy walk into Stresa and to the ferry terminal.... More

We visited hotel to go to the roof top Sky Bar for lunch and drinks. We had a wander round the hotel and it looked good quality and spacious. The Sky Bar has fantastic views over the lake and is a quality establishment. The salads were very good along with the Aperol cocktails we tried. A bit more expensive than... More

My first experience of the Italian lakes, that I have heard so much about. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the La Palma Hotel one the side of Lake Maggiore. It was beautiful. The hotel was charming and wonderfully furnished in a traditional way. The staff were so helpful and friendly, and the rooms lovely with balconies with flowers... More

This is the 2nd time we have booked the La Palma Hotel for our business meetings. And, we have already decided to go back! The hotel staff is excellent, the meeting space is great, the rooms are nice. All in all, this is a great choice. I highly recommend the La Palma Hotel, not just for a leisure trip, but... More

The hotel was conveniently located to the town of Stresa, its shops and restaurants, and within easy walking distance to boat rides and the lift to the mountain. Rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was very good. Public spaces for dining, bar scene, or meeting friends were excellent. The Sky Bar on the 7th floor is an attraction in its... More

We stayed at the La Palma Hotel in Stresa as part of a tour but were treated very well. It is right along the main street of Stresa, convenient to shops and restaurants. It has two outdoor pools, one on the roof that is heated and one on the lake. It also has a sauna, steam room and massages. The... More
