“Excellent apartments in the centre of Stresa.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

The Stresa Residence consists of 3 apartments above a restaurant; we stayed in the top apartment “Lavanda”.

The apartments are situated in the centre of Stresa, 2 mins walk from the lake and the boat departure point. It is 15 minute walk to the train station.

The "Lavanda" apartment is newly renovated in a modern “Ikea” style and is on 2 levels.

The first level consists of a studio style living area with a mini kitchen, dining table, wardrobe/cupboard space, a comfortable pull down sofa bed and satellite television. The room has a quiet air conditioning unit and is double glazed. There is also a large bathroom which leads out to a small balcony.

The second level has a large double bedroom with plenty of cupboard space, satellite television and an air conditioning unit. The bedroom is in the roof space and has 2 large skylights which when open give the room a very light and airy feel. There also seemed to be a chair bed.

The apartment has free high speed Wi-Fi which worked in every room, including on the balcony.

The kitchenette is suitable for making breakfast and for preparing simple meals, though there are plenty of restaurants nearby. The supermarket is less than 5 mins walk away.

On arrival we were greeted by the friendly owner who took great pride in showing us around the apartment. He was always available by mobile phone should any problems have arisen and was onsite at some point during every day.

The apartment is an excellent place to stay in Stresa, particularly if you want a break from hotels.
