8.0 Excellent
Cons: It's not the season to visit the beautiful lake place, so only one restaurant is open, and it is usually full booked at the weekend. And there aren't choices nearby. There is no room service for food. At bar there is no simple food. There is no water boiler in the room for whom need to enjoy a tea at room which is impossible.
7.9 Good
Pros: Nice building
Cons: Missing a coffee machine in the room...
2.0 Mediocre
Pros: The view was good.
Cons: Very nasty, arrogant staff. Walls between rooms are thin wooden board, soundproofing is the worst I’ve ever encountered. When I asked the manager to ask a group to keep the noise down a little at midnight (shouting, television full on etc) he told me to phone the police if I was unhappy. Shocking.

8.0 Excellent
Cons: Group occupying lounge space of residents
6.7 Good
Pros: Beautiful place on the shore of Lake Maggiore. The hotel is beautiful and may at times think that we have gone back in time.
Cons: In fact, the hotel staff is cruelly lacking in empathy for these guests and this is at the limit of arrogance. This feeling accompanied us throughout our stay including the check-out and is not the work of a single person but the result of a certain culture of the hotel. The current Spa space is ridiculous and it is high time to invest in a modern Spa, opening soon.
7.0 Good
Pros: Lovely location on the lake shore with a nice view.
Cons: Cooling had been turned off although it was still quite warm.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was elegant and beautiful and in a prime location with wonderful views. It's a short walk from the town and the many shops and restaurants located there. The staff was very welcoming and treated the guests very well. This is clearly a high end hotel but the staff members were not condescending as they sometimes can be at high end locations. It was certainly one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at and we've traveled quite extensively. The restaurant was excellent and the Hemingway Bar is charming. Later in our trip we stayed at a very expensive hotel in Rome (we had points, otherwise we wouldn't/couldn't have stayed there) and we talked about how the Borromees Hotel was far more elegant and welcoming.
9.7 Excellent
Cons: Tired of scrambled eggs every day
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel, but you need a car to get to the center. The staff is super proffesional and friendly.The room is nice (322) ,the bedding is very comfortable, sparkling clean , daily house keeping.The breakfast was good .Thanks for a very pleasant stay!We'll defenetly return.
Cons: Nothing.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff went above and behind. Simona was absolutely terrific
Cons: Advertise the food options at the bar, we only found them on our last day
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location, my room, although ‘bijou’ overlooking the lake was a bonus, with a balcony too, very unexpected. it was lovely to have breakfast in a bright sunny room looking out to the lake.
Cons: The bed was very hard and uncomfortable, with only one pillow, ok for sleeping but not so good for reading. Limited choice at breakfast, mostly tinned fruit rather than fresh, just grapes. I felt the city tax was excessive. According to online information I was expecting to pay €1.50 per night for a 4* hotel but I paid €2.50 per night - I did query this but I was assured that was correct.

Cons: Breakfast always the same. No variety
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Priced fairly except if you purchased anything. Drinks meal etc were expensive. Staff was helpful but a bit stuffy. Didn’t portrait authentic Italy like many other places. So probably won’t stay there again. Been to Italy 14 or 16 times and prefer a more authentic town and place to stay.
Cons: Facilities and location were good.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Competent, charming, well-run, old fashioned (that is a compliment) hotel in a comfortable, attractive, proper setting on the shore of Lago Maggiore in Stresa. I think a multigenerational family built, owns and operates it. Front desk very well run. Excellent advice from Concierge. Maids good. Rooms well disposed with good windows.

6.7 Good

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our room was spotless and had a wonderful balcony. The location and dinner at the restaurant were very good.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location is idyllic and so tranquil in the evenings.
Cons: Serving staff were dismissive and would not engage with the guests. Breakfast area and time disrupted by general cleaning of area daily.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great, the room was rather small for the price but I guess we booked a bit last minute. otherwise, secluded hotel on the tiny island. Feels nice and special to remain on the island when everyone else leaves with the last boats.
Cons: Nothing bad related to the hotel! Hotel was great! There is really not much going on after 5pm, the cheaper restaurants/pizza places close and only expensive restaurants open upon reservation at 7pm (due to small number of tourists that remain on the island over night). For the 3 nights we stayed, we missed some more normally priced food.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location and view from the room. I really suggest this hotel. The toilet had a bath without curtains on the side. Perhaps a different arrangement or a shower would have been a bit more practical
Hotel Lido La Perla Nera - Stresa - Building

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The breakfasts were generous and the coffee very satisfactory. The location - next to the ferry port. The room was simple and functional and once I got the hang of the Wifi, that was also OK. We needed to turn down all of the radiators, which were super-heated. The room was comfortable in the end.
Cons: Nothing really. If you were there to enjoy the bar, then forget it. Stresa is only 25 to 30 minutes stroll away, so the bar is not needed.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very accommodating. They explained the transportation choices to Milan Airport and arranged a very early morning taxi for us (which also turned out to be cheaper than arranging at the tourist center). They also offered to prepare breakfast for us, either to take away or eat before our pickup. The front desk was open 24-hours.
Cons: Not much we didn't like. The location was towards the end of town, not close to the city center where most restaurants and shopping are, however, we chose this location because it was also very near the ferry to the nearby islands. It was about a 20-minute pleasant water-front walk to the city center.
10.0 Excellent

Pros: The people and location

7.9 Good
Pros: Ideally located for the cable car and ferry
Cons: Hard mattress, and only on pillow each, had to request mattress topper and extra pillows, they should have these as standard

5.0 Okay
Pros: The room was big with double bed, a lovely balcony with partial lake view, a safe, a fridge, all the comforts. Clean bathroom with small shower sink bidet and hairdryer. The front desk staff, especially the man when I checked in and the lady when I checked out were so very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was good for an included meal. The location was perfect for train, ferry, even walk to downtown Stresa. The price was perfect, and I found standards were above other hotels on other lakes on my trip in the same budget.
Cons: I couldn't spend more time there. Also the hairdryer barely dries hair but this seems to be common in all the hotels.
7.5 Good
Pros: Confortable

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic elevated view over the lake, clean, smart hotel with nice small garden to relax
Cons: Not as close to centre of town as booking.com website suggests. Definitely not 1 mile. (cab ride or 30min walk). Uphill walk to come back. You really need a car to get about.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent breakfast. Very nice staff. Super accommodating. Great location
Cons: Nothing place was really great
7.5 Good
Pros: Great view of the lake. Peaceful but lots of church bells! Our balcony was a great addition. Easy drive to Locarno Switzerland for a day trip. Breakfast was very good. Grocery store in Stresa
Cons: It is difficult to find. It is a crazy switchback road to get to Stresa. The next village is even harder to find.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The view, grounds and position were all exceptional. The hotel provides a very good breakfast inside or on the terrace in the summer months. Free parking right in front of the hotel is a bonus. The staff were very accommodating and friendly.
Cons: The room was lovely with a beautiful view. Unfortunately, one of the mattresses in the room we stayed in needs replacing. It was quite saggy and made it difficult to sleep comfortably.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Views and charm
Cons: Thin walls
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view and breakfast
8.3 Excellent
Pros: This is a nice hotel with a spectacular view looking out over Lago Maggiore and toward the mountains beyond. If you just want a fully modern hotel to rest in and breathe deep of clean air and majestic vistas, this will suit you well. Staff were very helpful with all issues.
Cons: The only problem is with Brisino, not with the hotel. Brisino has nothing: no shops, no restaurants, nothing but a handful of houses, a church and the hotel itself. If you want to get something to eat or something from a supermarket you will need to go down the hill in a car to Stresa (3km) for that. And it is a BIG hill ... which brings me to the other negative: under no circumstances do what I did and go there by bicycle ... not unless you are a serious Giro d'Italia cyclist!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful hotel with an absolutely amazing view. The view was worth more than we paid. I would go back in a minute.
Cons: What could have been better - staying longer!

Villa Toscanini - Stresa - Bedroom
2
8.6 Excellent (175 reviews)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location on the island and hotel large room with lots of character with lovely old furniture. Great view from balcony.
Cons: Island rather full during day but not many people left after the last boat leaves. So worthwhile staying over night.
7.9 Good
Pros: Maria really nicely took care of us; the English breakfeast was exceptional!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location and the room.
Cons: Everything was very good.
4.6 Okay
Pros: The view from the hotel over Lake Maggiore was exceptional, and whilst the island had its charms it seemed to be better to visit rather than stay.
Cons: You can’t judge the hotel without judging the island. The last public ferry was at 19:10 and after this time the only option was a (more expensive) private taxi boat. But returning at 19:10 presented its own difficulties as most of the bars, restaurants and virtually all the shops were closed at this time (even though it was only early September). On the first night we had a choice of just 3 restaurants, on the second 2. The restaurants were also more ‘high end’ and appeared to be catering for commercially organised groups on ‘island trips’. This was not ‘get away from it all quiet’ but simply ‘dead’. Essentially, once you were on the island you realised you really wanted to be back on the mainland with all the choice and general ‘buzz’ it offered.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view on Isola Bella Palace. Staying there was a good way to enjoy the island at the end of the day when there is almost no one left.

Pros: The rooms, the view! Service! One of the best service that our dog got. You should have seen how they cooked food for her!!! It was amazing!!! They yard was so beautiful!
Cons: SPA was very poor. Steam room was very weak. It’s almost cold inside. You can afford only one towel. They are telling you at the entrance to take only one towel.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is beautiful with wonderful views. It is a pricey hotel but definitely worth the money - the staff are lovely, the food is great and we had a wonderful time. I would definitely recommend this hotel and go back. It is not the largest but has a wonderfully Italian boutique feel and the spa facilities are excellent.
Cons: It's a little further from Stresa town than the other hotels but there is a hotel shuttle that runs to and from the hotel.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was great. Location is stunning with amazing views of Borromeo Islands and of sunset.
Cons: Islands are beautiful but absolutely nothing was open, not a coffee bar, not a restaurant, no gardens. Our trip on a private boat organised by the hotel (extra cost) was fun but the whole expedition was a bit melancholy with very few people and nowhere to eat/drink on the islands. The hotel was not organised in terms of giving ideas to guests on how to amuse themselves in these circumstances. We went to the next town ourselves (were advised against going right but did our own research) and found a lovely winding road that had spectacular views etc. We usually travel in the Winter but this was really deserted and we wouldn't return again at this time. Lago di Como for instance was much busier and more full of life during Winter.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! Absolute indulgence and the staff just can’t do enough for you. Our view was just incredible and we loved waking to it daily. The Grotto ... AMAZING and a must experience. I could not recommend this property high enough. We absolutely loved our 3 nights there and were sad to leave.
Cons: I honestly could not fault this property, the amenities or staff ... all perfect!!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Reception staff were excellent, very helpful and made us very welcome ! Breakfast was amazing and again staff were very attentitive.
Cons: It was an amazing hotel , only minor problem was on two occasions no staff on the Spa desk and having to look for staff or hanging around waiting for towels and locker key. Also for a 5 star hotel they should have large towels instead of tiny ones !

4.6 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was good, wide selection, bright airy space, though facing the road so with associated noise.
Cons: On our first night we returned at 22.30 from dinner & fancied a nightcap the bar - it was closed although the night reception staff agreed to serve us a drink ‘as long as it was a simple beer or wine’. Went to room after to find was very hot & a/c seemed to be blowing hot air. Night reception staff said they’d try to reset and to try again after 10 mins. We turned it off & opened the windows to cool room as much as poss. After 10 mins tried a/c but was still hot. Night reception brought up mobile ‘swamp cooler’ & sent a man to set it up. He charged in in a very annoyed manner shouting that he was not God & how could we expect a/c to be fixed at nearly midnight. Why didn’t we just open the window? I told him we had just closed them again in order to retry a/c as recommended. I asked his name - Anton. He muttered on as he set up the machine. Night reception had told us no spare room but this guy chucked a key at me & said there was an empty room if I wanted to look. I couldn’t find the room & returned to our room where he seemed to have calmed down a little & machine was working (tho outlet pipes meant door & blind had to stay open) He then showed me alternative outside ground floor room - it had no a/c at all & again he said just leave door open. Not acceptable. Bad night sleep due to noisy machine & too light in am. In am I complained to reception staff about Anton only to be told he was the owner of the hotel. I was appalled. Reception staff offered another room that was not yet ready but we went to look. Tried the a/c, was blowing hot air. Told reception who went to check system only to find that someone had put the temp up! Once turned down all a/c worked. We stayed in room 205 but didn’t feel welcome nor particularly enjoyed our £140 per night stay. Pleased to leave. Hotel seems geared to coach/tour parties. Also only x 1 pillow per person provided. I asked for another.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The property was about a 10 minute walk to the old town and a short walk to the railway station.
Cons: The breakfast was a little ordinary. We stayed for 4 nights, so had 4 breakfasts, and every day the scrambled eggs were a bit runny and not at all appealing. There was no variety with the hot food. It was just bacon and scrambled eggs every day. Most of the time the fruit was canned and not cut fresh fruit. Only one morning the fruit salad was fresh.
7.5 Good
Pros: Love staying here as the staff are friendly, the breakfast is good and it is close to the lake and city centre.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was centrally located and an easy walk to the train station and to the sites of the town. The staff was very accommodating and helpful.I would recommend this hotel.
