“lovely hotel, nice people, great breakfast”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

hotel Sempione is small but lovely, great location, we stayed here in early November, the lake-view rooms are bigger and very nice view from the window, whilst the ohers are small and basic... which is reflected on the price. Nice and helpful staff, great breakfast. good Quality/price rate. A little bit far if you walk to train sation with heavy luggage.

Room Tip: lake-view rooms!!!

This little hotel is in a great lakefront location toward the southern end of the Stresa promenade, only a few minutes walk into the charming town centre. We were able to park nearby for free overnight, and at a low cost in the day. We were really impressed with the friendly staff and nice breakfast buffet. The decor of the hotel is a bit tired, but the cleanliness is good and overall we found this hotel to be very good value for money.

The hotel is situatd in a good spot, right on the last, nice view from the window but the good things stop there. The hotel is old, not cute old, just old. Our towels were frayed and had holes in one. The carpet on the walls made it impossible for an astmatic to breathe in there and the room was so ridiculously hot it wasn't funny, but you can't open the windows at night because a million mosquitoes are waiting. The bed was uncomfortable . Service was average but even for the price and location I just couldn't stand staying another second in that room.

Spectacular view over the lake, right on the promenade. The rooms are small and basic but this is reflected in the price. A perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area (almost directly across the promenade from the ferry terminal) yet convenient for Malpensa airport. Very friendly and helpful staff ensured we had a very pleasant stay. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ensure you ask for a room overlooking the lake

I was there two time ...
First one with my children, in July 2011, for a backpack trip in Italie, the sempione albergo was ous first stop, and that was really fine with the 3 boys, a quite far from the train station, the hotel was on the front of the lake, and really nesar of the centrum.
Second time in July 2012, by chance we get the same room (quite funny), and my friend was agree with me, the hotel was really fine and has a very good Quality/price rate ...
And the town, the lake, the boromé Island are just beautifull ...
Perhaps, no surely, we'll go there again and again, as we are convinced ...

This hotel is right on the sea front - close to everything but yet slightly removed as it is further up the promenade. It is quiet, old style but quaint and retains its charm. Our first room wasn't great but we were moved upon request on the second morning. The rooms are small but what you are getting in return is the convenience and views afforded by a sea front location. This is definitely a budget option but the continental breakfasts and customer service first class. If you are not intending being out and about much (?!), then splurge on a room at the front with a balcony.

This hotel is so conveniently situated, almost opposite the ferry terminal and around the corner from the centre of town, with all its lovely bars and restaurants. It also is right on the lake, so if you are lucky enough to get a room at the front (which unfortunately we were not) you get a wonderful view of the lake.
Our room was quite big with a lovely little balcony, which overlooked the building behind! We were only there for the weekend and were out all day so the view didn't bother us. The furniture is a bit dated but for the price we paid, 64 euro per night B and B it's a bargain! The only slight problem was the shower which was a bit temperamental and had obviously been there for a long time but with a little patience you could make it work!
The breakfast was very good-plenty of juice, tea, coffee etc, ham, cheese, rolls, pastries and fruit and certainly filled us up! The view from the window overlooking the lake when eating breakfast was perfect. The staff were all very helpful and as often in smaller hotels, were prepared to go that extra mile - my electric adaptor would not work to charge my phone and they went off to look for a spare that I could use.
We arrived by train and the hotel is about a ten/fifteen minute walk from the station and it's uphill on the way back!!!
