“Noisy but fine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

The rooms are fine and we had a nice little balcony out to the street side. Which is a problem if you are a light sleeper. The noise from loud people on a saturday night was considerable, and a problem for my girlfriend. Clocktower were two meters away from our window, but unlike other churches around the lake, it didn't ring all night long. But you sure will hear it from around 8 in the morning.

You will have the noise problem in any street facing room in most of Stresa on a weekend.

Breakfast was standard Italian. Ask for real coffee, and they'll make it, no charge, instead of the nescafe machine stuff.

Overall, noisy but friendly and well worth the price.

I really liked this hotel set one street back from Lake Maggiore. It is a traditional Italian style hotel and is very clean and comfortable. The bedroom was spacious and modern with a small balcony. The Hotel is air conditioned and it is controlled centrally at reception. The bedroom was spotlessly clean and the towels and linen were changed frequently. The breakfast was basic cold buffet style, evening meals were better. I would certainly stay there again.

Great location, friendly staff, large, clean room, BUT we were there in mid july and the air conditioning in our room would not cool it past the low 80's. After a terrible 1st nights sleep I asked the front desk and they set the minimum temperature (controlled by them not by the thermostat on the wall) lower, after a day exploring stresa and the islands the room was still warm and they turned down the temp some more. The room was still in the 80's. I went to the desk at midnight and the lobby was dark. The next morning they offered to change our room but we had enough and checked out a day early. The front desk staff was very apologetic and although we had booked 3 nights, after a call to management they only charged for the two (restless) nights we stayed.

We had a room with a balcony facing the busy plaza. and always had something interesting to look at. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast buffet was good. Staff was extremely nice and helpful, we got better and more valuable information from them than at the Tourist Information Office!

Service and quality in this hotel was well above average, for the price paid. Location and helpfulness of the staff ( giving directions, parking instructions to find free spots, and even translating my postcard into Italian ) were the best features, but the room and breakfast were very acceptable too.

My partner and I stayed here to attend a wedding in August 2011. The hotel was in a perfect situation, central to shops, restaurants and bars plus near everything including the 'beach'.
Our room was spacious, clean and did overlook the lake albeit in the distance - a clever photo made the lake appear much closer. Only downside was that our room was directly beneath the clock tower that struck twice a day, very loudly!!
Breakfast is continental, plentiful and varied. Staff were friendly and efficient without being 'in your face'.
Air conditioning wasn't working at all during our stay but apparently aircon engineers are in short supply in Stresa.

Room Tip: For the view choose a room at the front of the hotel but take ear plugs!!
