We really loved the free breakfast and the fun of meeting other travelers! The lounge/living area was so comfortable. The owner is very helpful but prone to lecturing. :) Our room was small but clean and had a large patio. The grounds and exterior need some attention. The location is good because you "have" to walk along the beautiful lakeside... More

This was our first time in Stresa but definitely won't be the last and Hotel Fontana is great place to stay. It has everything you could wish for and more. The rooms are basic but comfortable. We had a room with a balcony and a view of the lake which was fabulous. The breakfasts were amazing with a range of... More

As my wife, son and I entered Stresa, we were struck by the many luxurious, grand hotels. As we turned into the drive at Hotel Flora, though it was smaller than some of the estate like hotels we saw along the lake, but still we thought perhaps we had made a mistake when we saw the beautiful building and hotel...

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights here and found it to be a great place to stay. It has an old fashioned charm and wonderful hospitality from the staff. The location on the edge of Stressa was ideal for us with a pleasant easy walk into the centre. We will be back again.

Signor Giuseppe was a great host. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel for 2 night around Easter. Breakfast was great and we had a lovely view of the lake and one of the isole from our room. One thing was that the weather was unbelievably cold during Easter around the area, and the heater was not quite sufficient during... More

We stayed for 2 nights - in June, when the scent of the jasmine blossom spilled into the main hall of the hotel and up the stairs, just delightful. The hotel has WiFi, and is about 10 minutes from the ferry, same to the SV boats for the islands and just a short walk to the station. Giuseppe is really... More

We booked this hotel more than three months in advance for three nights but they telephoned the day before we travelled to tell us that they only had availability for one night and would transfer us to another hotel for the remaining two nights. This is simply not acceptable - we had no idea where we were going to stay... More

Hotel Fontana is a warm friendly hotel with spacious rooms and huge balconies! We stayed 1 night and were on the first floor and loved the room we got. The bathroom could have been larger and the exhaust fan was quite noisy but in totality it didn't really matter. The bed was comfortable. The room décor is simple and amenities... More

This was our second stay at the Hotel La Fontana, and I must say we looked forward to our 2-day stay as part of a 2 week tour of Northern Italy. First, the hotel facility is well decorated, is clean and neat, and provides amply sized rooms, bathrooms, and in our case a large balcony overlooking the lake with a... More

Having had Hotel la Fontana recommended by a friend in Australia, we booked online...having checked TripAdvisor as well. We arrived on a glorious sunny day, and were pleasantly surprised to be allowed into our adjoining rooms when we arrived, rather than having to wait until later in the afternoon. Signor Guiseppe, his wife Christine, and daughter Valentina take great care... More
