The hotel is located on the town piazza and about a 2 minutes walk from the ferry port. The rooms were basic but clean with flat screen TV and small shower only bathroom. Our room was at the rear of the hotel and had a balcony with nice views over the town. The rooms at the front have balconies overlooking the piazza.

Staff spoke English and were friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was cereal, bread, cold meats, cheese, yogurt and fruit. It was simple and very good.

There are lots of eating places close to the hotel.

We parked by the lake for free. The hotel does have parking but we did not use it.

Would recommend this good value place.

Hotel Elena is a real gem for anyone looking to stay in Stresa. It's a 15 min walk from the station and a couple of minutes to the lake and ferry terminal. We had a large room with balcony overlooking the square which was quiet and good for relaxing after a day spent sightseeing. There are great lakeside walks, good restaurants (ask Laura for recommendations) and interesting small shops within easy reach of the hotel. Breakfast was good and the service excellent. The hotel is very clean and well run and the staff are very helpful. If you are looking for a comfortable and well priced hotel this one is definitely worth considering.

A great place to stay. Rooms very clean, the owner meticulous in ensuring everything goes well. She was wonderful. The position is excellent and ideally situated for restaurants and the Friday market. Very good value and we will stay there again should we return to Stresa.

We stayed here for two nights in mid June. As all of the reviews point out, the location is great. Walking distance to the piers, evening stroll along the lake, shopping etc. A visit to the three Borromean islands is a must, especially Isola Bella. There are open air restaurants right outside of the hotel in the town square. as well as shopping and gelato stands. We were a little disappointed when we arrived, as I had requested a balcony room over the square and they had confirmed it. There was not a balcony room available, but they did apologize and offer to move us the second night (they had messed up the reservation), but we decided to stay in the room at the rear of the hotel as it was bigger and quieter. If you arrive by train, I would suggest taking a cab to the hotel, it's not the easiest place to find when you first arrive. It's a nice hotel on a beautiful lake, we only had one full day, and would have liked to have one more.

Stresa was our first stop during a 2 week European holiday and we loved this hotel! Great location with easy walking distance to the waterfront. We rented a room with 1 double bed and 2 twin beds for our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers). It wasn't a huge room but comfortably fit us. Our balcony looked right onto the square. We really enjoyed the breakfast they include and staff was friendly and helpful.
