“Wonderful boutique hotel in peaceful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This is a gem of a place! The rooms were spacious and comfortable with lovely bathrooms but as everyone else has said, you MUST get a lakeview room to fully appreciate the place. The staff were great and the breakfast was very good. The bathing area and sunbeds were lovely and all the rooms had small balconies or terraces. Meina is not like Stresa, the town is very quiet and certainly not suitable for anyone looking for nightlife though there are a couple of restaurants in the vicinity. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a holiday with a bit of serenity in a beautiful location. Don't let the front of the hotel put you off!!

Room Tip: Lake view room is a must

Hotel Bel-Sit has to be one of the most pleasant hotels on Lake Maggiore. Our extremely comfortable, spacious and quiet room had beautiful lake views. The hotel is very convenient for exploring the western side of the lake,the friendly and helpful hotel staff really helped us to enjoy our four night break. The tasty and varied breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking the lake. For a peaceful restful holiday you wont do better than the Hotel Bel Sit.

Room Tip: Do book a room with a view of the lake!

Can't say enough about this Hotel. Exquisite suites with perfect view of the lake. Wonderful breakfast. Extraordinary service before and during stay, especially from Barbara. Couldn't be better and very fairly priced.

Room Tip: Go for the suites!!

Hotel Bel-Sit was easily the most pleasant and best value accommodation during our five week holiday. The very comfortable and quiet room with beautiful lake views, convenient location for exploring western side of the lake, and friendly, helpful hotel staff resulted in extending our stay of one night to four. Excellent complimentary breakfast on the terrace that overlooks the lake and a relaxing spot for drink and snack in late afternoon. Also enjoyed two fabulous restaurant meals at Antico Verbano, as recommended by Bel-Sit staff, and only a five minute walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: Request room on lake side.

It is just impossible to find any cons about this hotel. We went there for a small family break with our children. We had very large and clean rooms, the staff was very friendly and the location is very convenient. The very good breakfast is served on the terrasse overlooking the lake, same as did our rooms. The small extra for getting a room with a view on the lake is quite worth it, as the room will be very quiet. Actually, this is one of the few hotels in the area where one can get a quiet room looking at the lake. In most of the others, the main road sits in between. In addition to a splendid hotel, I must say I got extra attention from the staff, as I forgot some clothes in the room and they made the effort to contact me to let me know and then send them back to me. Thank you again for your kindness!

Great location with no noise, nice and wide terrace on the lake, breathtaking view, and friendly staff. The rooms are clean, and nicely decorated. Recommended for people looking for quietness, instead of the crowds of Stresa.

I've stayed here a few times. The location and staff make this place one of the best small hotels on the lake. The rooms are modern and the balcony that opens onto the large sun-deck is great if you want to have a lazy morning.

One thing you have to keep in mind is that in some seasons the restaurant isn't open, as it happened last time we were there. Another positive aspect is that you can park your car in their underground garage, if you want it out of sight overnight.
