The hotel is perfectly situated at the square. The family owners are very helpful. We had a very comfortable stay in this great hotel. It may only be two stars but leaves many 4 stars hotels behind. It is two stars as no fridge or air conditioning. The overhead fan and open windows were better than any air conditioner. We will return here again as the hotel was great and the town of stresa beautiful. We are fussy with hotels and generally stay 4 or 5 star, but this is worth every euro. Downstairs bar and meal was good.
