“Friendly, clean hotel in excellent location”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

Our motorhome broke down in a nearby town and so we were booked into the Primervera. The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful and professional as we arrived late at night with three tired children in tow. We had a double and triple room in a quiet corner of the fourth floor. Both had balconies and the views over the rooftops to the lake were lovely. The continental breakfast was excellent and the location perfect: in town and near to the lake.
Although a little dated, this hotel feels like a very well-run and cared for family hotel. We also thought that the clock chimes were charming and a feature you will need to contend with in any Alpine town!!

The Primavera was a good hotel for an affordable price and a good breakfast. This is a centrally located hotel across from the boat docks at Lago Maggiore, and right in the middle of the Stresa's center. It's close to great restaurants and the owners also own the restaurant next door. A comfortable room with roomy bathrooms, at a good price.

Room Tip: Try and get a room facing the lake. Rooms facing the rear of the hotel are not a problem if you'...

This bright, clean hotel is only a couple of minutes' walk from Alibus stop, Lake Maggiore for walks and ferries, and the town centre for meals and drinks. We had a nice double ensuite room on 4th floor with a balcony directly opposite bell tower and view of lake over the rooftops for our 8 night stay. Free wifi, a safety deposit box and a fridge in our room at no extra cost were all very useful. All the staff were very helpful and the management honoured our booking, despite us arriving a day late (due to a flight change, which Omega flightstore didn't inform us of) and only charged us for the nights we had. Hope to return...

Room Tip: Better views and quieter on top(4th) floor

Staff we're very helpful, spoke excellent English and could not do enough to help. Breakfast was good, plenty of selection, excellent location for travelling around the lake.
Room was clean, free wifi and English TV channels. Only criticism was very noisy at night as people are using the restaurants til 12 - 1 in the morning and very hard to sleep

Only stayed for one night. I had emailed to ask for a quiet room at the back but ended up with a noisy room at the front but as only one night it didn't really matter. The biggest problem with noise is the regular church bells and s
The street cleaning that started very early in the morning. There is in fact metal shutters that can be used. The location is good, staff very pleasant and breakfast adequate . WiFi very good.

Stayed at Primavera for two nights in a family room (1 double, 2 singles). A few faults with the room, for example bathroom door didn't shut properly, soap tray was loose, bits were falling off here and there, but clean and acceptable. The location was perfect however; a 2 minute walk from the lake front, and in the centre full of restaurants and general Italian buzz. Staff were exceedingly helpful; several parking options were recommended, advice on what to do was willingly given in perfect English, and they general seemed always there to help. Free wifi with average connection. Breakfast had quite a large continental selection, including ham, cheese, bread, boiled eggs, cakes, fruit salad, yoghurt and pastries amongst others. Avoid the cereal and tepid uht milk though, it was revolting!
Would I go back there? Yes I would, as the location and service were huge huge positives.

Nice clean hotel in the centre of town. So easy access and stroll home from most parts of town. Nice little balconies to Watch the world go past. Only issue is the noise. If you are a light sleeper then bring some earplugs. When I was there the street cleaning started at 6.30am, and it was very audible even from the top floor. Ok for a night, but not much longer I would say. Nice staff.
