The hotel was well furnished with antique furniture. The room was quite small but perfectly adequate with a small balcony overlooking the courtyard. Shower bit of a squeeze for large people but worked fine. The breakfast of lovely croissants, breads, jams, cake, fruit and yoghurt was included in the very reasonable price. It is a bit of a trek into town (20 mins)and the nearest bar/restaurant is about an 8 minute walk away at the Lido. We did find the atmosphere a bit oppressive though as the staff, although pleasant, do not engage with guests at all. However, it is a good budget option.

From : Feroza and Meher Chinoy La Locanda is a very good B&B place for the price. Strategic & conveniently located which is important for tourists to get around; impportant locations within walking distance. Rooms / bathroom very comfortable and clean as was rest of the place. Breakfast - sumptuous & wholesome. Daniele did his best to meet ALL our needs. He is thoughtful, helpful and kind. Courteous and professional staff. We were sorry to leave. Our best wishes to Daniele and his staff. If we know of anyone visiting Stresa & looking for a B&B we will recommend La Locanda ! Feroza & Meher Chinoy, Mumbai, India.

Hotel La Locanda was the perfect end of our little family toad trip before our final drive to Zurich airport. It’s a sweet, cozy family-run hotel on a hidden alley of a street just a few minutes walking distance from the center of pretty Stresa. The lakeside promenade was just around the corner for easy strolls and the ferry lines to the various islands equally close in the other direction. Our 4-year old and us slept very comfortably in our cozy light-filled room. Breakfast offered a variety of options with coffee, fruit, fresh croissants, jam and yogurt to help us start the day. The palatial hotels of Stresa are beautiful to look at but La Locanda is the place for me :)

The hotel was very clean and tidy. Our nicely furnished room was rather big but the bathroom was quite small, especially the shower cubicle. The shower worked well. The location of the hotel was good for us. It is on a small quiet street about one kilometer from Stresa city center and about 500 meters from Carciano Lido where one can take the boat to the islands and other villages or the funicular to Mottarone mountain. The railway station is also only about 500 meters away. It was easy to get out of the city, and back, also by motorbike. We appreciated the parking possibility, and the spacious balcony.   For us, this was the first hotel where they would not provide an extra roll of toilet paper, only one each day. We stayed eight nights and the Italian sweet breakfast began to taste a bit boring. Especially as gluten-free bread (requested in advance) was only served the first four mornings, and then only crackers and rusk/zwieback - in addition to a sachet of corn flakes and a muffin. Non-special diet included croissant and rolls as well as cake and pie. In addition there was yoghurt, jam, butter and fruits, and beverages of course, but no cheese, cold cuts or eggs. Also, almost everything (butter, jam, honey...) was individually packaged which is not that environmentally friendly. The double bed was a bit like a trampoline and the bed legs were loose.

What a gem on the outskirts of the main tourist area, so lovely and quiet. Two star hotel with five star service. Everywhere spotlessly clean, good sized room with small balcony and air con (room 15). Freshly baked croissant (divine), cereals, rolls, jams, lemon cake and marmalade tart with ample fresh fruit for breakfast. Hotel is family owned and their aim is to please. Location is perfect - 10 min walk from railway station (for fantastic Lake Maggiore Express trip to Switzerland, back by boat), 5 mins from cable car (a trip not to be missed) and 5 mins from local boats trips to islands. About 15 mins stroll from main centre, along the lake and past all the big old hotels to reach the town centre where there are plenty of restaurants, the main boat dock, and all the shops. After your evening out you can have a night cap in the bar before making your way to your room to sleep in your very comfy bed. All in all a real gem.
