“Excellent value, very good position”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We stayed already 5 times at Hotel La Locanda in Stresa.
Excellent value for money, coupled with a favorable position relative to the city center, ascending to the Mottarone top, boarding to Isole Borromee or to train station. Mr. Daniele is a very nice host and amazingly discreet. Always we return in Stresa with pleasure, being impressed by the hospitality of the family. Recommended to all who want harmony and relaxation in a family environment.

Room Tip: My recommendation: rooms facing the Mottarone mountain

Enjoyed our recent stay here, especially location, easy 10 min walk from Train Station, 5 minutes to Lido for ferry & Gondola up Mottorone (must do) & 15 minute lakefront promenade route to town centre. Our Host Danielle was helpful and attentive and the rooms larger than Italy standard. The room we had was at the back of hotel with a spacious balcony with view over residential homes which to me gave an authentic feel. Breakfast was quite good in a charming dining room. Would definitely stay again...Thank you Danielle.

Rooms are very clean and large : a 4-people room for our couple. No air conditionning, but the owner gave us a blower and it was very good! Breakfast is OK (yoghurt, fruits, bread, jams) and the people working there is very nice. The parking is more than interesting and the hotel is not far from Stresa center (1.5 Km, 20 mn walking) and very close to the funicular for Monte Mottarone. The hotel is quiet, just a few trains during the night.

Room Tip: If you mind heat, maybe not take a room just under the roof (2nd floor)

Clean and comfortable hotel in a quiet area, about 15 minutes walk to the town centre, along the lakefront. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms not large but adequate. Ours had a small balcony. Breakfast the usual - yogurt, fruit, breads, good coffee.

Stayed three nights at La Locanda. The hotel was small but cute and the staff were welcoming and attentive. For the three of us, the room was spacious, clean and the surroundings of the hotel are very quiet. It's only a five minute walk from the beautiful lake Maggiore where there are nice bars and restaurants nearby. Also, would recommend a boat trip to the nearby Isola Bella, absolutely stunning! So if you just want a clean bed and breakfast, La Locanda is just the ticket, great value!

I stayed here for 5 nights this week and the reviews were spot on. Daniele was fantastic and helped me with train information and without asking, took my case up to the room and showed me where to find an extra blanket. The heating came on when the temperature dipped too. Breakfast was adequate and my room was
fine. Great to have such a hot shower. Location is perfect for the train station and so quiet too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return.

We recently stayed a night at La Laconda on a brief visit to Lake Maggiore in the rain! The room was comfortable and, although we feared we might be a bit cold as we only had one blanket and the heating was not on, we slept well. Location is great for taking a ferry ride to the islands and staff were helpful in arranging a discount. We also had a very pleasant stroll into town to find dinner. We didn't notice the friendliness that others have spoken of, but we were only there for one night. Staff were definitely helpful when asked. Would I stay here again? Sure.
