Everything there is excellent; the lake view, restaurant and rooms
Not a thing
Nice hotel, not overwhelmingly luxurious, or large, just right for our taste. True 4 stars and in off season good value for money. Probably the most enjoyable in a trip that took us from Italy through Switzerland, Germany and France.
Street noise as we were offered lake view room, but the heat in the room to high and we slept with the window open.
Near the train station, breakfast, and could walk most places
Front desk employees when in the concierge services could be more helpful and answer questions in greater detail, especially if a traveller is new to the area and new to Europe's transportation modes.
It was great. I would return. Perfect location, modern, and clean. Pool is across the street and right on the lake (better since you are in Stresa). They accomodated a family of three with an upgrade to a junior suite -- making sleeping arrangements comfortable for our adult son. It's hard to find a room for 3 with comfort!
Location and view to lake
The hotel atmosphere.
Location in Stresa
A very nice and supporting atmosphere, caring staff, they even run to the railway station to bring you the left colledge ring. Bath, brilliant view to the lake.
friendly staff who spoke English
only buffet dinner available. No wine in the minibar. Pool outside and you had to cross the road with heavy traffic to get there.
