“Value-for-money, hassle-free accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

We arrived at the beautiful lakeside town of Stresa without much planning. Since my wife just got pregnant, we just wanted a relaxing and hassle-free weekend break without breaking the bank. Thankfully, this hotel helped us experience that (too bad the weather was sucky).

The hotel is superbly located near the ferry terminal, just off the main lake-fronting road. Conveniently, restaurants, cafes and shops are abundant within the vicinity of the hotel.

The owner was also very helpful in planning our days there. Every morning, the cappuccino is awesome. Restaurant recommendations were also good. Yeah he may have business arrangements with them but if the food is great, why should we bother?

He also constantly cleans the room whenever you leave the hotel. Even during evenings. While some people may find it to be intrusive, I personally don't care as I really love someone cleaning up my mess. For me, he is very nice and has good intentions, but some of his peculiar habits can easily be misunderstood by people who are very particular on how things are done. In other words, if you hate living with your mum, then this is not the place for you.

Overall, I definitely recommend this hotel as we really enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful hotel, perfectly located within a 5-minute walk to Lago Maggiore ferry with clean, somewhat spacious rooms, soft linens, light continental breakfast of coffee and croissants, free-Wi-Fi in the lobby and a very pleasant, attentive English-speaking host! It is also close to shopping and restaurants. No need to stop in a tourist office in Stresa if you stay at Hotel Saini Meuble! Gianni kindly provided maps, directions, recommendations, and reservations. Although we arrived somewhat later in the evening, he recommended an excellent nearby restaurant (we recommend the gnocchi). Thankfully, we happily followed his suggestions and added Isola Bella and the Monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso that were highlights of our trip. Although we arrived to the monastery after hours, the views at sunset are romantic, surreal and well worth the drive. Although it took us a while to post since our stay, our memories remain as fresh as the delicious melt-in-your-mouth Stresa cookies Gianni introduced us to—a Stresa must try!

We are a group of Ramblers from Yorkshire who recently spent an enjoyable few days in the lovely town of Stresa on Lake Maggiore. It's truly beautiful and must be a delight in the spring.
We stayed in a small and friendly hotel called Saini and the chap who owned it was most accommodating and helpful and showed us what was what and where to go for best grub etc.. Price was quite good as well.

We stayed 2 nights in 2 double rooms to accommodate 2 adults & 2 kids (aged 13 & 10). The rooms themselves were basic/spartan but clean. Annoyingly, there was a fridge in the room but it was not turned on. The location of the hotel is excellent and we were able to park in a nearby carpark. The breakfasts are basic, the highlight being the cappuccino, the lowlight being the pastries wrapped in plastic.

Reading other reviews, we can't believe we encountered the same person they describe. We found Signor Saini to be pushy, rude and intrusive. From the moment we arrived, he laid out all the ground rules including that no washing was to be done in the rooms. After that, he proceeded to tell us what we should do each day; when we indicated we had slightly different plans, he was not happy. He was insistent with his suggestions, then wanted to know where we had been during the day. He also suggested restaurants for the evening (which is always welcome),but then was presumptuous enough to make a booking for us even though we said we might not eat there (kickbacks, anyone?).

Everytime we left the room, we came back to find our things had been moved - this we found very intrusive. The first time we thought a number of items were missing; turns out Mr Saini put them in a cupboard in the bathroom.

On the last evening after explaining that we were heading to Sirmione on the next leg of our trip, he was insistent that we should give Sirmione a miss and extend out stay in Stresa as it needs more tourism. Stresa is a lovely place, but we could have done without the ear bashing from Signor Saini. No way to treat hotel guests.

First of all we do not keep always on , the fridge in the rooms, however, it is sufficient to turn on the switch ! In addition,in the Hotel , there are four big refrigerators, always on .
In our Hotel the rooms are cleaned in the morning and in the evening , although our Hotel (3 star) it is not a 5 Star Hotel , in the evening we execute the "mise en place" of the rooms, his means : settle the beds and bathrooms and if necessary replace the wet bathrobes and towels .For our breakfast we have , every morning, fresh pastries and croissants and all other ingredients to a good breakfast (biscuits, cookies, butter, jam, croissants packaged ,tea, coffee, cappuccino, fruit juices etc ....) .
Unfortunately we have to point out that these "incorrect" customers have just arrived, have washed a lot of clothes (also having two children) in a room and therefore have wet the precious wooden floor. As a result of this, we have communicated to them our disappointment, and indicating that there was a laundry suitable for this purpose . Stresa. Normally we have a good practice to inform our customers in their specific interest, as in Stresa there is a lot of opportunity to be not well advised , on things to be able to visit and about the restaurants serving meals at the best price / quality '. We must also point out that after having committed to book Stresa. We must also point out that after having committed to book for 4 people in a restaurant for dinner , according to their liking . Unfortunately did not go and did not have the education to advise , compromising the reliability of our work . We would like to make , also , a further clarification on our advice to extend their stay in Stresa, Stresa. clarification on their extended stay in Stresa. First of all because we were required to go to Como ( not Sirmione ) for only one day, and as the lake of Como is just an hour's drive from Stresa , was clear that it was more comfortable to stay in Stresa .After we give them a map of Italy and indicated the various destinations and the next day they went to Sirmione on Lake of Garda ( not Como ), following, however, our recommendations for the easiest way, as described on the maproad .
As specified by us in this review is to defend the reputation that our Hotel Saini in Stresa, has always had .

We stayed here for 4 days. The owner was a delightful man who shared his knowledge of the area with us and gave us great tips on what to do, availability of various payment options (yes we saved by following his advice) and pointed at the great eating places. Rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet.
I'd come back again.

Hotel Saini Meuble is a great little gem in the heart of Stresa. Gianni [Johnny] the hotel's owner is wonderful. He is always present to provide help and advice as to places to see, and places to go, and excellent restaurants to enjoy. This was our second stay at Hotel Saini. The first was in 2009 and when decided to return to Stresa, Saini was an easy choice. The hotel is well-located within easy walking distance of all activities in the area. The hotel is not fancy, but is very clean and neat. Johnny is always attentive to the needs of his guests. Every time we left the hotel and returned, we found that our room had been made up and was always neat and clean. Johnny is wonderful with his suggestions of things to do in the Lake Maggiore area. I recommend the Hotel Saini Meuble without any hesitation.

Room Tip: Double rooms are a little larger. I believe there are only 15 rooms, they all looked fine.

Rooms were lovely and clean and the location was perfect.
Really had a lovely time throughout my stay.
