“Great location and reasonably priced but......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

A 15 minute walk from the railway station and centrally located in the centre of town, this Hotel is extremely difficult to find without very specific instructions. Check in is in the downstairs restaurant which can be confusing, and there is no lift to the hotel rooms, all of which are on the upper levels. All rooms are of different configurations, ranging from quite spartan to very comfortable and you must be prepared to be firm and positive when dealing with the front desk if you want one of the better rooms. Breakfast was a disappointment, tinned fruit and stale croissants do not do it for me.

However the staff, without exception, were wonderful and the location was superb. Despite being located on a busy street with many passing tourists everything calmed down about 9pm and sleeping was not a problem.

I would stay here again (but buy breakfast off the premises), only if I was guaranteed a superior room, which are good value for the location.

Very convenient hotel in the centre of Stresa. The overall cleanliness, rooms, linen and towels were very clean. The rooms were well lit. Very good value for money. Getting to the hotel is relatively simple only a short walk from the train station through some narrow streets. The place is very central, shops, waterfront and ferry all very near.

The location of this hotel is great - only metres from the waterfront and ferries, right in the middle of the village. Parking nearby is a slight problem. But they helpfully assisted us with getting our luggage from the car. The room was spacious and clean, overlooking the lane below.

Room Tip: The new rooms are good.

A good location in a nice village.Good service and a helpful ower.
The lady of the house need to cool down a bit. Its tourists she speaks with, not an employee.
She have to tink about her heart. Problem with the temp.balance in the shower.The breakfast was a disappointmant.Specificallyl the bread. The juice tasted a bit like a mix with water.Rooms OK, but not all. Better cleaning in the shower area wood help.I wood like to go back.

We stayed for one night on our way from Florence to Switzerland, and really enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly, the price very reasonable, the location great and the breakfast very nice. Stresa is a most beautiful little town. If we have the opportunity to visit Stresa again, we will certainly stay in this hotel.

Booked an economy room for the weekend .
We arrived in the evening , no reception ( it's all done in the resturant)j.
The room was dark and dingy,very basic and sparse poor furniture in bedroom.
The cleaning was average and cleaner, cleaning floors at 8.30 on a Saturday morning did not help.The room had the smallest shower I have ever used (or tried to).
Breakfast is taken in the resturant and is very very basic.
I would describe this as a resturant with a few rooms.
I have stayed in Stresa many times, this is the worst hotel I've stayed in .
There are many other hotels which provide much better value for a few euros more.

Nice staff. Cheap rates. We got a double toom for 60 euros including an okay breakfast. Hotel was centrally located. Remote control for TV did not work.
