Tiny family run hotel is in the heart of Stresa.Easy access by foot to all places in town. Clean rooms but no A/C. The beds were not the greatest.The family that owns it provided excellent service, and the continental breakfast was great! I

This small family run hotel is right on the piazza and within walking distance of almost everything. The rooms are clean but very basic. The breakfast is good, the Illy coffee great and you can have a aperitivo on the front porch and people watch. There are many good restaurants nearby. If you are looking for a good value I... More

The hotel is located on the town piazza and about a 2 minutes walk from the ferry port. The rooms were basic but clean with flat screen TV and small shower only bathroom. Our room was at the rear of the hotel and had a balcony with nice views over the town. The rooms at the front have balconies overlooking... More

Hotel Elena is a real gem for anyone looking to stay in Stresa. It's a 15 min walk from the station and a couple of minutes to the lake and ferry terminal. We had a large room with balcony overlooking the square which was quiet and good for relaxing after a day spent sightseeing. There are great lakeside walks, good... More

A great place to stay. Rooms very clean, the owner meticulous in ensuring everything goes well. She was wonderful. The position is excellent and ideally situated for restaurants and the Friday market. Very good value and we will stay there again should we return to Stresa.

We stayed here for two nights in mid June. As all of the reviews point out, the location is great. Walking distance to the piers, evening stroll along the lake, shopping etc. A visit to the three Borromean islands is a must, especially Isola Bella. There are open air restaurants right outside of the hotel in the town square. as... More

Stresa was our first stop during a 2 week European holiday and we loved this hotel! Great location with easy walking distance to the waterfront. We rented a room with 1 double bed and 2 twin beds for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers). It wasn't a huge room but comfortably fit us. Our balcony looked right onto... More

Hotel Elena is right on the main square and walking distance to the marina, waterfront and quaint shops. The family-run hotel is well managed and has a wonderful breakfast. Having a/c, a lift and an outside terrace (facing the quiet back) made this a most enjoyable stay. Yes the room was small, the wifi intermittent but overall a great value... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a great location being on the town square. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was very quiet. It is a very short walk to the lake and other parts of Stressa. The manager was very helpful and gave us lots of information.... More

Laura and Marco are friendly and helpful hosts. The hotel is clean and the location is very central, the lake being a short walk away. The piazza at the door is lively with a wide range of restaurants and cafes - we were entertained one night by the town band who had the crowd joyfully singing Verdi. A glass of... More
