“Choose your room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

In an overall nice and well located residence/hotel you have to choose your room carefully. We booked a double room and got sort of half a suite. Between us and the neighbours was only a very thin door. Consequence, we heard every word and other noices from across. This can be disturbing. But as said otherwise ok and no complaints! Choose your room!!!

Room Tip: Don't take half a suite!

We booked the apartment on the strength of the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We had a third floor apartment, 1 double, 1 twin and a bed in the living area for 2 extra if needed. 2 bathrooms, great space and very well kept, looked pretty new. View of the lake from the balcony although there is another hotel in front (Hotel Dior?) but that doesn't stop the fantastic views of mountains and lake. Staff were very friendly and the whole visit was great. There is no parking but don't let that deter you, there is plenty of free parking opposite down the residential roads. Highly recommended.

Be warned, this is not a hotel but a Residence and a very good one at that!

The staff, especially the owner, an elderly italian gentleman Mr. Adami, try to cater for every request your family may have. The family owned/run Residence is newly renovated with spacious rooms, large beds and most importantly, Air Conditioning!

Our positive experience started before we confirmed our booking, requesting specific room types to accomodate our 13 month daughter, a mother-in-law and us. We were offered a 3 bedroom apartment with self-contained kitchenettes and baby cot which exceeded our expectations.

Arriving mid-evening in 36C heat to find there is no hotel parking and surrounding streets already full, the owner Mr. Adami moved his car from the parking spot in front of the hotel and offered it to us. Within minutes we unpacked our car and were being cooled by our airconditioned rooms and settling our toddler.

The restaurant is typical of local italian fair, so dont expect fancy furniture, however the service and the quality of food is excellent! Try the calamari!

Breakfast is overpriced and basic, €7/ person. But a short walk outside and you can get yourself a coffee and pastries for much less and the cafe next door does hot sandwhiches as well. Italians dont generally do hot breakfast so dont expect to see eggs and bacon.

Take advantage to cool off in the lake by taking a short walk (5-10mins) to the 'Lido Beach Club Baveno', entrance is free, so is access to the change rooms and toilets and there is cool shade of trees right beside the water.

Overall it was a perfect few days serving our needs and exceeding our expectations.

We'll be back again for a short stay very soon!

Room Tip: All rooms have AC, rooms with a balcony or facing the lake are noisy as they are facing the main roa...

We were sleeping at Hotel dei fiori. The rooms look like it was just renovated. Everything is very new and clean. Rooms are very cozy and spacious. There's even a small kitchen. Staff is charming and hospitable. Good location. I highly recommend

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in Jun 2010. I was travelling by myself and attending a wedding at the Hotel Dino which is directly across the road from Residence die Fiori.

From the moment I called the hotel to enquire about availability the staff were so helpful and friendly that it really made my trip to Italy very smooth. I had booked a single room but was given a nice double room. The room was very spacious and clean. It had a double bed, a small terrace facing the back of the hotel so it was nice and quiet, satellite TV, air conditioning, a safe, and a small fridge.

The hotel is in a good location (I found it very convenient to Hotel Dino). The waterfront, local shops, cafes, bars, and restaurants are a very short walk from the front of the hotel. There is a supermarket about a 10 min walk away.

The staff helped me with train timetables for trains from nearby Stresa and even drove me to the train station the day I departed.

Overall this is a decent 3 star hotel offering good value accommodation in Baveno.

Journey
Travelled with Ryanair via Bergamo, then bus to Milan Cantral Station (7 euros single) and train to Stresa (4 euros 40 single). Onward boat to Baveno was another 3 euros single.

Apartment
Apartment was lovely. We had one on the third floor, with a living room and large bedroom. It was newly refurbished with a neat kitchen concealed behind sliding doors. We had a large balcony with lake and (albeit obstructed) lake views. THe apartment had a nice bathroom with Jacuzzi Bath and low level hand held shower.
We sourced the apartment via their own web. You need to be aware that aircon is extra, and allow for the compulsory cleaning charge at the end (regardless of how many nights you stay.

Eating out
Lots of Pizza / Pasta and other restaurants in both Baveno and Stresa.

Trips and Excurions
Lots to see and do. We did an organised trip to Lake Orta and the "Big Carlo" statue via the travel agents next to the "Italie Suisse" hotel opposite the Stresa Boat station. It was very enjoyable.
We also visited the three islands via public boat excursions - they are all lovely.
Finally, there is good walking available - we walked up to the Alpine Gardens from Baveno (approx 2 hours 30) and back down to Stresa (another 2 hours).

Return journey
Did same journey in reverse. Be warned that late afternoon traffic out of Milan can be very heavy. The coach journey back to Bergamo took over two hours (inbound was less than an hour) so allow plenty of time.
