Hotel Milan Speranza Au Lac
Ranked #5 of 35 Hotels in Stresa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 1, 2011

We visited this hotel as a coach party (24-29 September 2011) with Edwards Coaches, South Wales, UK. We couldn't have been happier with the service and care shown to us this week. Some members of our party were vegetarians, and they were given the utmost care and consideration possible to ensure that they enjoyed their stay.

Ourselves, we had adjoining rooms on the first floor with a balcony with extensive views of Lake Maggiore. The reception staff were always friendly and ready to assist at all times.

All in all a most enjoyable holiday and thank you to all who made it possible.

We were upgraded to a lake view room this trip, and agree now that it's well worth paying the extra. The hotel is old but the dinners are excellent (breakfast is continental). If you don't like the bed, complain: they changed ours. Make use of the facilities at the nearby Regina Palace. It's not the best hotel in Stresa but it is excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Pay for the lake view: floor three upwards. Eat in the Milan

Just back from a week's stay in this hotel and could not find fault with it at all. The room was pleasant with a balcony overlooking the lake ,the linen was changed every day The staff in reception and the dining room were excellent, very friendly and helpful. The food was very good with excellent choices each evening. Because we were traveling independently we used the conservatory at the front of the building bus parties dined in the main dining room. A bit 'them and us'. Location very central but a bit noisy because of the car park and the church bells nearby

Room Tip: Rooms to the front have a lake view but can be noisy

The staff at the Hotel Speranza Au Lac are great and make you feel very welcome. We stayed in the Speranza side of the hotel and yes, the beds could be a bit more comfortable but otherwise we were satisfied with our room which was kept very clean throughout our stay. We ate in the dining room of the Au Lac side of the hotel in a very attractive, airy room which looked preferable to the smaller dining room in the Speranza but which seemed to have the same, great staff. The food was very good, with plenty of choice and plenty of it! You may have had to go a short way down the road to their sister hotel, the luxurious Regina Palace, for a swim but you are in Stresa, Lake Maggiore with the shops, the lakeside, the sunshine and the Borromean Islands so what more do you need? I would be very happy to stay at the Speranza Au Lac again.

Room Tip: Get a lake view if you can but the street views are good too

Just returned from Stresa Italy whith Crusader Holidays, we stayed at the Speranza Hotel which is next to the Milan, which is owned by the same family , unfortuantlay the Milan is the one shown on the webb pictures and not the Speranza which is only a 2* hotel, rooms were very small and beds were so hard it was like sleeping ton the floor. Make sure you do not stay in this Hotel if going to Stresa.

This hotel was very central with one of the best views on the lake at Stresa. We booked directly with the hotel and were delighted with the location. Located right on the water with views over the lake. Directly accross from the ferry terminal and a 10 min walk from the station. The hotel was quaint, maybe the furnishings a little dated but it was clean the beds comfortable and the lake front rooms had a small balcony to sit out on and take in the magicall view of the lake. Rooms had air conditioning and were very large with good block out shades on the windows. There is a large room for breakfast facing the lake which had a really good range of items. The food and service was excellent. The resteraunt opens at night and is very well patronised, although we didn"t use it. All the little shopping lanes behind the hotel lead into the square and we meandered our way around here in the evenings with lots of variety good places to eat and interesting little shops and some music. Would highly recommend this hotel, for the excellent pricing and its location we were just stunned with the magical view of the lake and mountains and we would deffinately stay here again..Thanks to management for making our time in stresa a joy to remember.

Room Tip: book a room with a view..its worth the bit extra to wake up to such a magicall view of the lake aks...

This hotel is in a fantastic location overlooking Lake Maggiore in the centre of Stresa. The shops, restaurants and the ferries to the island are a five minute walk. Our room was on the first floor and had a balcony and view of the lake which was lovely.

The room however was dingy. It looked like a hotel room from the 1970s. From the worn carpet, to the cheap wardrobe where the doors wouldn't slide, the tired sheets and blankets - no duvets here and only a half size sheet between the main sheet and mattress it felt old. There was even one of those old hotel radios on the wall - not working.

The hotel is obviously investing gradually. The bathroom was nice and new, there was new double glazing and blinds and a flat screen tv, but it was wasted in the dingy room. There was no book of information about the hotel or facilities. According to the website they have a pool, though we didn't see any information about it or where it was. We eventually found out you could get internet access on their computer for 35cents a minute. There isn't any free wifi in Stresa.

The restuarant was fine. Breakfast was very basic although there were a lot of staff around. Less staff and more food would be better. Dinner was good, with second helpings offered!
If they finish the refurbishment of the rooms this would be a lovely hotel, but currently I wouldn't stay there again.
