Short walks to station, tow and lake ferries. Very good service. Basic room but it had everything we needed. Comfortable bed. If you want a good 2* traditional hotel then this fits the bill. Breakfast included homemade cake and plenty of fruit. It didn't bother us at all but be aware no lift or air con. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again if we went back to Stresa.

We spent 3 nights at this pleasant little hotel. It is located a short walk from the station but about 15-20 mins from the town centre along the lake front. The staff were helpful and most spoke some English. Breakfast was great and tea or coffee was available anytime for a small charge. Our room was in an older block but well serviced daily. Parking is available for a fee. Most ferry trips to other islands left from the terminal a few minutes walk from the hotel rather than in the town,which was a bonus. We had a lovely trip to Villa Taranto, a superb former privately owned garden on the mainland, and the nearby town of Intra.

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 ;-)
