Reviewed December 19, 2013

We stayed in room 6 for 3 nights. The hotel is very nice. We had a room overlooking the lake (though slightly obscured by buildings across the street) and on the main road into town (but we were not bothered by the street noise.) The staff was very friendly and helpful, and much more accommodating than in many hotels. An example, we arrived early afternoon after flying all night from the US. We checked in and went to our room for a short nap. When we awoke around 4 we were hungry, but did not want to eat too much since we planned to eat dinner in the hotel. They made us a lite sandwich snack with a bottle of wine for a very reasonable price - and you need to realize the kitchen was not open at the time. We had read many good reviews on their restaurant and must agree - the food was fantastic and the service was great. We ate there 2 of our 3 nights in Stresa. The 3rd night we had had a big lunch and picked up some pasta, pizza & wine in town and ate it out on our balcony - very lovely. Also they had a wonderful breakfast buffet with delicious homemade pastries.

Only caveat is its location. We did not have a car and it really was not safe to walk into town along the busy road with no sidewalks. This limited our flexibility; we would have preferred to be able to hop into town to walk around any number of times but could not. There is a bus, which we took, but it only ran hourly and did run later in the evening. If you have a car, or you don't mind these limitations, I would highly recommend La Sacca for your consideration.

BTW - a couple that had a car noted once they got into town they had a hard time finding a place to park.

Others have spoken about the low prices, free parking, etc but we found this hotel to be too compromised by it's position right on the main road. As we sat on the terrace for our mediocre breakfast huge gusts of wind generated by the frequent passing lorries blasted the plastic curtains around and . The traffic noise levels were very high and started early in the morning.
In truth, this hotel may be in the Stresa post code, but it's so far out of town that you would never try to walk in. The town itself is magnificent, so why not stay there?
We were interested to note that our room had padded walls - slightly worrying! - we assumed this to be fashionable.
We had read about the good food at La Sacca, but were put off by the evening menu which consisted of three courses of Chef's Surprise.

Room Tip: Bite the bullet and book a room in town.

Situated just outside Stresa which is a great location to be based at, so it's ideal for people with a car. The hotel is lovely and spacious but made even better by the family who run the hotel. We paid a little extra for the room with a large patio and spa bath, although it appears all the rooms have a view of the lake. The hotel has a relaxed feel, while the restaurant is more formal and we would recommend the chefs special menu. There is pleanty of choice at the continental buffet breakfast.

All round excellent value for money

We had visited Stresa for a day trip a few years ago and had yearned to return and explore. We were on budget and had a hire car so were looking for somewhere at a reasonable cost with car parking. Previous reviews suggested that this hotel met these needs so we booked it for our weeks stay.

We were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent english
on arrival we were asked for a deposit for the late door pass. This was needed if you stay out after 11. The deposit was small and returned on departure
The hotel has its own car park across the road with ample spaces. Do not park in spaces 1 to 5 as these are reserved. The hotel also has a quality restaurant. We only used it on our first night as we like to explore but ee were very taken at the quality for around 20 Euros per person
We stayed in an economy room which meant our bathroom was not en suite. That said it was only across the corridor and private to our rom. We encountered no problems
the bathroom and bedroom were both cleaned to a very good standard everyday. Not something we have always had in other continental hotels.
breakfast was very nice as well. Naturally being om the continent it took the style of a continental buffet. However unlike most places subtle changes were added to the fare each day.
only two small problems some people may encounter. The hotel is on the main road which is quite busy all night. However we bad no problem sleeping a d the views over the lake more than made up for it. The other was that the entrance to the shower was a tight squeeze s

We decided to stay just outside Stresa as we wanted to have a lake view at budget price with easy car parking. We got it all here, having a wonderful night at La Sacca. After enjoying a lovely early evening meal in Stresa, we returned to La Sacca and sat on our terrace and had some local wine while we watched the sun go down. Beautiful stuff. Our room was very clean with nice bathroom amenities. Breakfast was a very nice spread, probably the best we had in Italy. Loredana was very nice and hospitable, giving me a lovely La Sacca hand painted soap as a momento of our stay. Definitely recommend this place to those wanting accommodation which is well priced, with genuine, decent hosts, all in a beautiful setting on Lake Maggiore.

WE had a wonderful surprise when we choose a cheaper option and had rooms with the most beautiful view at the lake, The bath room was across the corridor. The breakfast was the best in Italy. Value for money.

We booked into this hotel largely because on the weekend we wanted to stay in Stresa the larger
hotels in Stresa were booked out. It was a pleasant surprise. We found the staff very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. We had a lovely balcony with our room with a fantastic view. We had a lovely dinner in the restaurant where we found the food presented to us to be very good and very fresh. We also chose a local wine which was lovely. The cost of the meal was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is close to Stresa, but removed from the chaos of the crowds. Contrary to some reviews, we did not find our room noisy at all and it was facing the road to Stresa?
