“Fantastic value for overnight stay”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We stayed here when passing through Maggiore for one night on our Italian Road Trip. This hotel is fantastic value, clean, with all the amenities you will need. It's about a 1/2 hour walk into Stresa or a 5 minute drive. Breakfast was good and the service was friendly.

We stayed here for two nights in June and had picked it specifically as it was just outside Stresa which can get a little crowded. It has a big open car park across the street (just be quick as it's a motorway) and an amazing quasi outside eating area with stunning food. It was easily among the best food we had the entire trip. The room balconies are small for the most part but still enjoyable with a glass of wine. And what a view.... you could happily wake up to that every day. After touring Stresa and the islands all day La Sacca is a brilliant place to return to wind down and enjoy the evening. Highly recommended to anyone.

Only 2km from Stresa with magical views from your room across the lake. The rooms are very comfortable and the service is very good. If you stay make sure that you have dinner in the restaurant it is a little more expensive to your average restaurant in Stresabut the food is some of the best you will ever taste, absolutely exceptional meals.

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.
