Just 10 minutes up hill to station or stroll along lake into stresa 20 minutes . 15 minutes to cable car and boats to islands, Shuttle bus from malpensa drops you off on the road where hotel is up a quiet street. Charming frontage and Italian rustic charm. Continental breakfast basic croissants superb. Hotel spotlessly clean .Rooms basic but lovely with balcony on upper floors Beds comfortable. View over hillside very pretty. Travelling without a car is ok but if you have mobility problems it's challenging especially up hills in heat. Taxi back from Stresa is only 9 Euro and worth it . Make sure you grab a card from excursion shop with taxi no as hard to get one especially when airport days they're all in malpensa ! Eating out in Stresa is relaxing strolling around shops and restaurants you'll find cheap eats from pizza takeaway shop great Italian ice cream and range of choices . Not expensive similar to U.K. . Hospitable friendly locals . A must is days on the Borrimon islands take a couple of trips to see it all. Absolutely stunning . Isla madra pay to see gardens and palace predatori quaint. Takes you back in time Isla Bella is a real jewel. By way free wi fi in hotel great watching Netflix no probs!
We found a little late the bus schedules are hourly to baveno but you can get ferry as well. In Stresa you can stay in the luxury five star hotels to lovely b and bs and share the same beautiful place. Having a car is a great idea to see more if the region. The hotel has a small car park. It would be helpful for the hotel to sell affordable snacks and drinks as no fridge or drinks making facilities if you are staying a few days . I would recommend this hotel for a local experience of Italy however if like me you have mobility challenges walking in heat up hills then there are lovely small hotels similar right in the centre of stresa too.

Nice hotel in a lovely village close to the lago di Monate. Sober decoration, confy room, tiny TV with zillions of (Italian) channels. Do not expect fast Wifi, why would you need it anyhow: just relax and have a pleasant walk. Very friendly & hosting staff

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a view on the lac ;-)

This wonderful hotel is a family run business which we stayed at as part of a Bishops tour of Northern Italy.
The rooms were modest but as clean as a pin and the family made us feel truly welcome.
The hotel is located a short walk from the station and downtown Stresa.
I would recommend this hotel to any traveller looking for clean budget accommodation.

A cosy hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is in a quiet corner of Stresa, very near to the train station and to the cable car.
I loved the chocolate cake in the breakfast :)
Thank you for everything.

Clean, quiet, comfortable, good breakfast, very attentive staff and equidistant to train and lake maggiore. About 5-8 minutes walk to the lake. Views of the mountains, islands is in front of you. Isola bella, isola madre and isola pescheira at your disposal. Views are unbelievably gorgeous and safe to walk anytime of day.

Room Tip: All the same on every floors
