4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Stayed with my wife a month or so ago and had a wonderful stay.Owner and son were a delight and most helpful.Perhaps the pillows could do with a change as were a bit firm for us.Overall a relaxed in the heart of town stop over

Room Tip: Ask for one on the street, very quiet but a bit more atmosphere

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

I loved this hotel, mostly for the owners and their restaurant. It's a great value, with good clean basic rooms, and centrally located. The owners are just so charming and lovely. I ended up eating at the restaurant two or three times because it was one of the best in town. If you're going to be in Stresa, this is a wonderful economy hotel.

The hotel is very nice on a main street in Stresa. It's a short walk to the lake. The rooms are basic but very clean. Ours had a small balcony that we didn't use much due to the weather. The best thing about the hotel is the extremely friendly family that operates it. The breakfast was good and I hear the restaurant is outstanding but we didn't eat there. If I were returning to Stresa I would stay at Hotel Luina.

We stayed here 2 yrs ago as part of a multi-city vacation. The owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Very basic accomidations, but immaculate. Convenient location. Good continental breakfast.

We didn't stay at the hotel but had a meal in the restaurant and it was by far the best meal we had in the 2 weeks we were in Italy. Other restaurants were good but this was exceptional. We had scallops and the beef tornado plus desserts of course! The staff were wonderful and we had complimentary drinks because we were a little early for our reservation and had to wait a few minutes. The prices were reasonable and although there weren’t the hundreds of options you find in some of Stresa’s restaurants, everything was made using fresh ingredients and demonstrated its commitment to quality not quantity. If you go to Stresa, you must go to this restaurant, it is outstanding.

Nice little hotel. The rooms are not spectacular, but it's reasonably priced, excellent location right by the town centre and the main boat port, good bed with a firm mattress, bathroom just fine. What sets it apart is the warmth of the owners. Happy to show you the room before you commit, very friendly and helpful. My wife had sprained her ankle walking in the evening after pharmacies had closed - they provided pain killers and cold spray and helped any way they could.

Our room was towards the town centre which, although pedestrianised, means a bit of noise from chatting people since the narrow streets echo a bit. But not a problem.

The beginning of July is an excellent time to visit Stresa - the school holidays hadn't started yet and we had no trouble getting rooms or dining out without reservations.

Why go else where? Hotel Luina in the centre of old town Stresa is a delight. It's position is perfect being only a yards from the ferry port and promenade as well as being in the cool of the ancient cobbled streets and alleyways of the shopping area. The hosts are the loveliest I've ever encountered and you are made to feel special the moment you walk through the door. They treated my mother in law with such hospitality that she even signed the guest book 'Mamma'!The decor is still in the old fashioned style but that gives Luina added Italian character. I like this place very much.

Room Tip: Ask for one with balcony maybe on second floor (no lift) which may be quieter from pedestrians below...
