Hotel Belvedere is situated on the east side of Isola Pescatori (Fisherman’s Island), or to give the island its full name, Isola Superiore dei Pescatori. Take note of this, as the ferries seem to use this name on their timetables and on their tannoy announcements and sometimes even abbreviate it to Isola Superiore. The island is small; maybe 300m, or... More

This is the second year in a row that my sister and I have stayed at this charming, comfortable hotel in Stresa. Situated on picturesque Isola Pescatori in Lago Maggiore, the Hotel Belvedere offers a respite from the bustle, cars and tourists on the mainland and an unparalleled view of the beautiful lake and surrounding Alps. Frequent, convenient boat rides... More

Our first visit was so special we returned for a longer stay a year later. This place is comortable, friendly, and oh so quiet at night, being on a small island in the middle of Lago Maggiore. Fabulous view from our balcony. The island itself is wonderful to explore and many good eating places. The hotel restaurant is excellent. Easy... More

If you are going to stay in the area, I highly recommend you avoid the mainland, but rather stay on one of the islands. Being away from the crowds at night is a big plus. And if you do stay on an island, where better than Belvedere? Staff is warm and helpful, the rooms lovely, and did I mention the... More

We were a little worried about the limitations of being in an island, but it was a wonderful and peaceful experience. We very quickly adapted to the ferry system to get around the lake. The small hotel was clean and our room on the top floor was massive. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant was the best we... More

Dear Judi, thank you for your comments! You are right, a lounge area would be perfect for our guest to relax, especially in the rainy days (very often on the lake!!)

We visited in June for the second or third time and will probably return. The rooms were more than adequate and we enjoyed the lake views. Service was excellent on both visits. Our hosts, Paco and Laura were outstanding, we felt like family. They took care of everything. The wait staff were outstanding, they always seemed to second guess our... More

Fabulous views and fascinating history. Staff really went out of their way to look after us. We were lucky enough to have the best room, with a big terrace and wish we could have stayed longer. It felt a real privilege to have the island to ourselves (almost) at night, after all the day trippers have left. Great restaurant, with... More

A stay at the Belvedere on Isola Pescatori is the perfect place to recover from a long flight. A pick up from Milan airport is well worth it and soon you are whisked across the lake into the welcoming arms of the lovely people at the Belvedere.
