Just back from an eight night stay at this hotel in wonderful Stresa. I had an extremely comfortable stay at this lovely little hotel. It sits right on the busy main square so is ideal for getting to the town and ferry terminal. I had a nice little room at the back of the hotel which was nice and quiet... More

This is a small family hotel smack dab in the middle of Stresa. Right in the central piazza. We were on the third floor I think, and from our room we could see snow capped mountains in the distance, and enjoy watching the comings and goings in the piazza below. Noise was not an issue. This location was absolutely excellent.... More

Spent our first night in Italy in Stresa. The Hotel Elena is a wonderful location. Right on the main square. The quad room was tight but clean and comfortable. It had a great balcony overlooking the town, square and mountains. The breakfast was good and it was fun sitting on the patio/cafe sipping a few beverages. I would recommend the... More

We stayed here for a week in the summer with our two small children. The location is very convenient, right on the piazza. It's a very very basic hotel, but very clean and convenient. Family run with excellent service and a pretty good breakfast. We were out all day everyday and sat on the balcony of an evening watching the... More

This hotel is located in the square in the centre of the old town, a couple of minutes from the pier where the boats leave from, and about 15 minutes' walk from the railway station. The rooms are slightly old fashioned but clean and functional. We took the advice in other reviews to ask for one at the rear so... More

Excellent hotel in the best spot in Stresa - good clean rooms and extremely friendly staff - mother and son team [Laura & Marco] are so helpful and assist with local information. A local hotel worth returning to.

The hotel is perfectly situated at the square. The family owners are very helpful. We had a very comfortable stay in this great hotel. It may only be two stars but leaves many 4 stars hotels behind. It is two stars as no fridge or air conditioning. The overhead fan and open windows were better than any air conditioner. We... More

We twice stopped at the bar of this hotel for coffee. In fact it was only on the second visit that we noticed that it was also the reception for a hotel. Coffee and cakes excellent, as breakfast must be.

A family run hotel that is close to everything in Stresa including being within walking distance of the station. We were given a generous size room with a small balcony and wonderful view and a spotlessly clean bathroom. Most importantly there was a lift to get our heavy cases to our room. The breakfast included fresh fruit and as much... More
