This is a small family hotel smack dab in the middle of Stresa. Right in the central piazza.
We were on the third floor I think, and from our room we could see snow capped mountains in the distance, and enjoy watching the comings and goings in the piazza below.
Noise was not an issue.
This location was absolutely excellent.
Room facilities and cleanliness were adequate.
Breakfasts were adequate.
The hotel is run by Laura and her husband Marco(?), both of whom are courteous and helpful.
There is a choice of good restaurants only a few steps from the front door, the ferry wharf is 3 or 4 minutes walk away.
This is not luxury accommodation, but it is everything that any reasonable person could wish for.
We did inspect several other hotels in Stresa while we were there, including a couple of very much more expensive ones. We did not see any that we considered to preferable to Hotel Elena, even had they been priced at the same rate as Hotel Elena.
This is an excellent small hotel and we would definitely stay here again.
