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

A charming hotel on Stresa's main piazza with a bar at the front and breakfast room at the back. Our room was on the fourth floor with views over town and towards the hills. Bathroom was lovely and everything was clean. Continental breakfast was fine. The owner is a business-like lady who's friendly but not the type who'd want to... More

The hotel is gloomy and old-fashioned. Room small. No designer interiors here! But - scrupulously clean! Lovely comfy bed with spotless white starched sheets. Extra big fluffy pillows. A thick mohair rug/throw provided for a bit of extra warmth as the sun went down. A tiny balcony with a little table and chair and, being at the back of the... More

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
