“Nice place in Stresa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Very central, next to the lake, excellent service.
We were very impressed by the high organization of breakfast. With the large number of people at the hotel in August, the waiters managed to attend everyone within seconds and it didn't feel crowded.
the reception available for advice on sightseeing and tickets booking.
overall good impression.

I stayed at Speranza in June 2013 and It was a home away from home. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. THe food was delicious and special mention must be made of the head waiter and one of the waiters, Massimo.

I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a Cosmos Italian Lakes tour.
The Hotel is old, lovely, with great views of Lake Maggiore. Strangely, we ate in the Hotel next door. However, the Speranza was really nice, clean, good size room and blessed with absolutely lovely staff. Nothing was a trouble to them and they made the stay even better. Plenty of restaurants around the rear of the Hotel, which is a little village. Absolutely lovely.
I would rate this Hotel 7.5 out of 10 and would not hesitate to stay there again

Probably one of the best possible locations in Stresa, on the border of the lake, close to small squares deeper in town, next to the boat departure point.
Room is large and comfortable, I have to say though that the floor was quite squeaky, I was always thinking of poor neighbors below :-) might be they didn't hear anything.
A positive critique would be the breakfast though, quite limited, no hot option and more importantly, there was no fresh vegetables at all, not even tomatoes. Fruits only dried and the juices were all sugared.

we arrived in stresa via train and could of walked to our hotel Milan from station as so very close. This hotel is situtated right on the lake and we had a lake view room which is a must. It costs more but the view is amazing. The staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful with all of our questions (train strike at the time) and did their best to help us. The hotel itself is an older style hotel with the décor in the rooms a bit old, but very neat, clean and tidy so no real complaint about room or bathroom. The only issue we had was that there were no power outlets/power points in the room and so when we needed to charge phones,cameras etc we had to do it in the bathroom, which was not ideal with water etc around. Also, we feel that a bar fridge and tea and coffee making options should be in the room. We had a fantastic view from our balcony where we could sit and enjoy a coffee or drink but no fridge? There is a great bottle shop just down the alley from our hotel with a good range to select and enjoy on our balcony whilst looking at a view of the snow capped mountains. Overall, a good hotel, great location, great friendly staff, just a couple of minor things that could really make this hotel fantastic and it would not take much to add those things mentioned to the room. The breakfast was good, with plenty of places to eat around us. Right near the ferry for the lake tour and a very good tourist company just down the road, the lady in there was very helpful and nice.

Room Tip: ask a lake view room and level four.

Just to say that following our lovely holiday last May , we've booked to go back again in May 2014! I think that says all we need to about this fabulous hotel! We were treated like royalty which was especially lovely for my Mom ( who was 82 when we last visited ) and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I am sure that this second visit wont be our last.

Room Tip: the balcony rooms are lovely

From the location (right across the street from the ferry) to the AMAZING staff ( everyone we came in contact with on arrival welcomed us, to the staff at breakfast wishing us a good day to all the staff wishing us goodbye on check out) to to clean rooms and great breakfast, it was all great! Special shout out to Oksana- worked breakfast & the bar, she was not only pleasant but personable & cheerful.
