So first of all this is not a "Grand Palace Hotel" that line the main road of Stresa. However, this is a clean, friendly family run hotel that is in a perfect location to explore Stresa and Lake Maggiore. For how much time you spend in your room this is a perfect intro to Stresa. The couple who run the... More

In a great location overlooking the lake, this tired old hotel is prime for a bulldozer. Hopelessly badly run, this is a waste of great real estate. The management was incompetant overall, although the younger male tried to help. Patron did not! Room was bland, and not worthy of any stars at all! Internet is grossly inadequate, breakfast was a...

The hotel is simple and clean and a great location directly across for the terminal docs that run regular ferry services on Lake Maggiore. The staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. The included buffet breakfast is enough to set you up for the day. This is a great hotel that won’t break the bank with a location just as good... More

Central hotel with a fabulous location, opposite the lake and near all the local shops, and main square, boat trips directly opposite the hotel. Terrible breakfast, I was actually disgusted with the breakfast that was on offer, stale cake that smelt and tasted like it had been in the cupboard for 6 months, even the butter sachets tasted stale the...

This place is in the most amazing location, right opposite ferry terminal, town & carpark (although you have to pay for the carpark). Rooms are ok, nothing special, but quite comfortable.

Lovely little family-run hotel right opposite the ferry terminal in Stresa, with the town's pedestrian area just behind, perfect for exploring the town and for access to the ferries to the Borromeo Islands and beyond. Less then 15 minutes walk to/from the railway station; the Lake Maggiore Express round trp to Locarno is to be recommended. Standard buffet breakfast and... More
