This hotel is located in the square in the centre of the old town, a couple of minutes from the pier where the boats leave from, and about 15 minutes' walk from the railway station.
The rooms are slightly old fashioned but clean and functional. We took the advice in other reviews to ask for one at the rear so as to be quieter, and had a pleasant outlook over houses and gardens to the hills beyond.
Breakfast was very good with a good supply of bread, rolls, cold meat, cheese, cake, and fruit.
I'd be happy to stay there again if we returned to Stresa. The town itself is probably one of the best places on the lake for setting off on the Lake Maggiore Express and boat trips, and also has access to the cable car to Mottarone, and a pleasant walk to Belgirate. It feels completely safe to walk around and has plenty of restaurants.
