We stayed two nights in June 2013 specifically to enjoy the views of Maggiore. The Jr. Suites with lake views are large, comfortable, quiet and beautifully decorated. Our particular room had two balconies that both provided a panoramic view of Lago Maggiore and the mountains. If you have a lot of hotel experience in Italy, you will know that finding a full size bathroom with a tub and wall mounted shower is rare at mid-price properties. Simplon delivers on both accounts and the only reason this property is affordable is because it is in Baveno instead of the touristy center of Stresa (a five minute drive). On my two previous trips to the area, I was set on staying in Stresa but, it has become overpriced and most of the lakefront hotels are in serious need of rennovations. This is not the case with Hotel Simplon and honestly, Baveno retains the charm that Stresa had before it turned into a tour bus hotspot. We found the location to be exactly what we wanted in regards to peace and easy acess to the surrounding towns. The ferry service is a two minute walk from the hotel and will take you to the islands, Stresa and other lake towns. Staff here are very approachable and will do anything to make your stay a perfect experience. The gardens are lovely, the pool is huge and again, the rates are a steal for what you get.
