This hotel was well-located on Stresa's central square, close to restaurants and bars. It is very close to the landing stage for boats to the Isole Borromee. We had a top floor room with a balcony facing the rear of the property, looking out over quiet residential buildings rather than the hustle-bustle of the square. The room was a bit...

I arrived at the train station with 8 other travelers to find no taxi service available. We were able to follow the signage to the Hotel Elena which was approximately a mile. This property is located at a central square; within minutes to Lake Maggoire(?). Amazing maze of shops, cafes, gelatto, restaurants, amazing architecture in the surrounding areas. The properties...

We stayed for three nights in this hotel. We found the staff to be friendly and the location is great as it is in the main square of Stresa, within easy reach of many shops, restaurants and the lake. Our room was at the back of the hotel and had a balcony overlooking the hillside which was very pleasant. The...

We are two couples and we stayed at the Hotel Elena for a few nights in April this year. The hotel is right on the piazza just a few minutes from the lake and ten minutes easy walk from the station. The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke English reasonably well. The rooms were big and spotless -...

After lack of support/help at Malpensa airport, we eventually got to our hotel much later than anticipated but were welcomed. This is a small family hotel, well worth its one star rating. Our room, top floor, overlooking the main square, with balcony was good size and clean, everything that we needed. Breakfast was fairly typical continental but adequate. Plenty of...

I stayed in the Hotel Elena for 4 nights.My room was very clean and comfotable - it was cleaned every day. The owners were very welcoming and the staff were very helpful as I do not speak any Italian and they spoke a little English. The hotel is just a short distance from the lake is it in the square...

Stayed here for three nights on a short break and found nothing to complain about except that the shower was a tad small for my bulky frame! (As much my fault as theirs!) The exterior is rather functional and unappealing but the room was spacious, had a wonderful balcony with views onto the square which was very pleasant for sitting...

Initially, I was pleased with my single room in Stresa, but sad that it had no lake views at all. While the room was clean and nice, I found upon closer look that the mattress on the bed was approx 3 inches thick. Having a bad back, I knew that this would be very bad for my stay of three...

A group of 8 of us stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It is a small hotel on the edge of a large square in Stresa, great location for being in the centre of things, just a short walk to the lake and where the boats go from. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were basic but...

Stresa is a real find. The hotel Elena is 10 min from the station, a few mins from the port and you step outside the front door to the Piazza with restaurants. Room was clean and quiet overlooking courtyard and they served a good breakfast. A very pleasant place to stay.

“A room facing the yard is quieter and has a nice view to the mountains”
  • The room is a double but I was staying alone. If a couple it is a bit too small
  • All the rooms have a small balcony. This room is facing to the yard
