“A great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Excellent stay! We wanted to stay at one of the grander hotels and ended up here due to lack of availability and on the strength of tripadvisor reviews. The hotel exceeded our expectations and the photos on their website do not do it justice. Location is excellent and the cleanliness of the room is faultless. We had a stunning view from our suite and would definitely come back again.

Great place to stay. Very clean. Quiet (during my stay anyway) and attracted like-minded people: so no TVs blaring away into the early hours. Having said that, it's only 4 or 5 minutes walk to the centre of town and a wide selection of bars and restaurants. (Which are needed as the hotel has no restaurant of its own)
The owner/manager Marisa is exceptionally helpful. The breakfasts give an extensive choice of cold food and the woman who presents them is nice and engaging.
The location is on the lake front, the boat station/main ticket office an easy and short walk. Watch out for the Stresa boatmen who eagerly offer you a trip to the islands: these are private and more expensive trips then you may wish to pay. Might be just what you want of course.
If you can skip around the big tour groups, the 3 primary islands are great to see. Ticket combinations can be a little confusing and I found Tomassucci Travel - in a small tourist shop opposite the embarkation point - very friendly and helpful, giving advice and selling boat & entrance tickets at the lowest price available, as well as offering various tours.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a lake view.

Booked this hotel on strength of reviews and it certainly lived up to all expectations. Our suite was very comfortable with a lovely terrace. Sonia and Denise could not have been more helpful, helping us to plan various outings and recommending restaurants. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Stresa.

This hotel does not disappoint. It lives up to and beyond the reviews. It's location at the southern end of Stresa ensures a quiet, relaxing stay with stunning views, and the most comfortable and spacious accommodation. Delightful staff top off a stay not to be forgotten. Would highly recommend it.

Our last 5 days in Italy were spent at La Luna nel Porto, so after the bustle of Rome, Florence and Milan we were ready to breathe out. La Luna is a blissful package - warm, gracious staff; elegant suites with terraces, balconies and views of the lake; well-kept gardens and a superb location with a very short stroll to the ferry terminal. Views across the lake stretch across the Alps to Switzerland. The Borromean Islands and their spectacular gardens are only minutes away by ferry. The La Luna staff are able to recommend restaurants and tour experiences nearby. We particularly enjoyed the regional cuisine at 'Piemontese' and the lake seafood at 'Casabella' on the Lago Superiore e Pescatore. Thanks to La Luna and the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.

We stayed for one week and can't speak highly enough of the hotel. The owners and staff were so helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Our suite had a very large terrace on the 2nd floor which overlooked Lake Maggiore and the islands with snow capped mountains in the background. The location is a few minutes walk to the centre of town and the ferry terminal. Stresa is such a relaxing and beautiful place to be and we can thoroughly recommend this hotel which is right on the front but very quiet with pretty gardens and wonderful vantage points to admire the views. Order a drink from the bar and be fed with yummy snacks and chocolates.

Room Tip: Choose a one bedroom suite with a large terrace.

We have been staying  in hotels on the Lago Maggiore for more than 10 years. Last year we visit the Luna nel lago where we decided to sojourn this year. Among the reason of our choice was the location of the residence, close to restaurants, bars, shops and embarkment.
We enjoy the "suite 101" for a five-nights stay, in early June this year. We appreciate the terrace with the raising sun in the morning and the afternoon the changing view on the lake, the armchairs before dinner and the whole modern large space. 
The staff was very friendly and the assistance they provide to guest is highly professional. 
We did not use the kitchen since for dinner, the pizzeria Papagallo was welcoming us each night and at lunch we were either outside Stresa or in the restaurant Vicoletto which we recommend. It was a pleasure to have breakfast (a coffee and viennoiserie) at the Bar, a few doors away or a drink in the afternoon for watching people.
We shall come back next year to visit again the gardens and the museum and palaces of the Borromees islands,  to walk along the lake or to climb the Mottarone. It is not far from Milano and Switzerland (Hundred valley railway from Locarno to Domodossola).
