“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Gianni made sure we made the most of our 3 nights at his hotel. Of course we were tired when we arrived and so we were shocked that he did not insist we go through a long check-in procedure. Instead he took charge of our bags and told us to rest and come back down later so he could make suggestions for our dinner plans as well as plans for the next day. We accepted his suggestions and enjoyed an incredible train ride to Levanto with return by boat as well as excellent meals at local establishments. We also had wonderful conversations with this very interesting gentleman. The hotel is right in the middle of everything, near the dock and an inexpensive cab ride to the train station. One night we were caught in a sudden storm while at dinner and Gianni even showed up with umbrellas for our walk home! The room was especially clean and was evidently cleaned twice daily. We would stay here again and again. Thanks Gianni for making our trip so special!

This hotel was such a welcoming place for me. Gianni and Mari Saini were the best host. Gianni made recommendations for sight seeing and great places to eat. He was always available to answer questions and have great conversations. Loved the breakfast and the rooms were very clean and spacious and quiet. The location was excellent for catching the train, boats, and exploring downtown. Can't wait to come back.

We have traveled numbers times in Italy and have never had such attentive and friendly service anywhere else. Gianni and Mari were there to make your stay in Stresa as amazing as you were wanting it to be. The hotel was clean and comfortable and we did not feel lacking in any area. The location was so perfect and you always had good ideas where to eat or visit. These set up train reservations and hotel reservations for us as we ended our visit in Milan. We would definitely return should we go to Stresa again. We feel like we made new friends!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back side of the hotel if you go to bed before 11. We enjoyed hearing the sou...

We had just a little trouble finding the hotel, it is hidden in a little side-street, in an old building, right in the old town. The owner, Gianni Saini and his wife welcomed us warmly, made sure we were comfortable and gave us recommendations for eating out in the evening. They even made sure that our bicycles were taken inside for the night. The rooms were spacious and very quiet, but there was no real view of the lake. The location is excellent for visiting the old town and catching the boats. For those that arrive by car, parking is a slight problem, there is nothing right near the hotel. The railway station is within walking distance.

Room Tip: The top floor rooms have a view over the rooves of the town and even a glimpse of the lake.

Long overdue praising this hotel from our visit in February 2014. Gianni "rescued" us after we discovered that our online booked hotel was closed for renovation. Gianni immeditely took us in and besides providing a five-star experience in accomodation, was the perfect one man chamber of commerce for Stresa and Lago Maggiore. Our visit was deep in the "off" season with many attractions and services closed for the season, but Gianni knew what was open and all his recommendations for food and entertainment were spot on. Additionally he was most helpful in directing our transportation and even booked accomodations for us in Rome for our return trip. Five star service, family friendliness and secure, comfortable accomodation, you could find no better in this beautiful region.

The hotel is run by one of life's real characters, Gianni. As other reviewers have said, his knowledge of the area, of sights, trips, shops and restaurants comes free with a stay here which gives you a head start. This never happens in the bigger impersonal hotels. Staying here is like living here among the locals. You can learn so much and get a genuine feel for the area in record time, which in my opinion is what travelling is all about. It is a hotel of about fourteen rooms. Ours was spacious and spotlessly clean. Service was great - even the bed was turned down in the evening. I have rated the hotel as "Excellent" because it suited my needs. The breakfast is modest but we were here out of season and many of the local suppliers, bakers and cake shops for example were closed, so Gianni was unable to provide all that he might normally for breakfast. Again as reported, the coffee was great with plenty of refills. Good strength free WiFi in all rooms is an added bonus.
I shall certainly be going back here on my next trip to my "Holiday Home" in Stresa.

Room Tip: We always request a quite room, which ours was, and because the hotel is really in a pedestrian area...

Gianni was the perfect host and owner. His greeting and total knowledge of all of the Stressa area were beyond our expectatiions. The room was immaculately clean and of more than adequate size. Ice was even available for our evening beverage. Coffee in the morning was awesome. We arrived as guests and left as FRIENDS.
