Because of a problem with our originally booked hotel we were moved last minute to this hotel. Because of its position between a busy main road and a railway station we were a little concerned when we arrived but we need not have worried. it was very quiet inside and we heard very little noise. Rooms were clean and the bathrooms were particularly good. We had a very modern room on the third floor and it was spacious with wooden parquet flooring and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was immaculate, featuring an amazing multi-head shower.
Breakfast was plentiful, in a bright dining room. The hotel does dinner as well but we didn't try it as it is closed on Monday evenings. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Regarding the position, it is not exactly right on the lake, but you can see it from some of the rooms. Neither is it in a major tourist centre like Stresa, but with a car you can visit the main towns on the lake very easily. It is an ideal base for touring the area at a very reasonable price. In all we were very pleased with the Sirio Hotel.
