“SCW on tour 2”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Excellently Located overlooking the Lake Maggiore the rooms varied in size and quality, found the staff to be most helpful, the food even though on a tour, was very good baring in mind that this is a largish hotel with lots of covers to cater for at dinner. My only comment would be that the plumbing in my room was very noisy and intrusive to say the least.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

The hotel is right by the lake. I took Alibus from MXP to Stresa ( the ride was about an hour, 12 Euro, good value), the bus dropped me off right acroos the street from the hotel. The location is very convenient for bus riders. From the hotel it's an easy walk to the plazas and restaurants. It's approximately 15 mins walk to Stresa train station.

I had a single room and it's really just designed for one person only. The size of the room, the way it's laid out and the way the bathroom is designed ( just as big as what you would see on a cruise) almost made me feel it was a regular size room cut in half to have two single rooms. Despite the small size, the room is adequate for a night sleep. The room rate was under 100 USD a night at last minute booking included breakfast and internet ( unstable and on the slow side). I consider it's a good bargin.

We stayed as part of a group excursion and found the hotel very accomodating. Service was excellent and the food was very good. Staff were helpful and friendly. The level of English spoken was quite high.

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.
