We had reserved a room with a view of Lago Maggiore and ended up with Room 546, the only one with a small balcony. It's been said before, but the view absolutely makes this room. Blue sky, blue lake, in fine weather it's stunning. From the balcony you can watch water taxis and ferries come and go as they take...

Have been visiting this hotel since 2001 - Everything is perfect - anyone who gives this hotel less than a glowing review is a moron. The staff are friendly and helpful and will do anything to help you - even smiling whilst having to suffer a loud arrogant fat german tourist loudly demanding bacon and eggs which he hadn't paid...

Right in the center of town. Rooms are simple, comfortable. WiFi is excellent. My room - a single - had a small balcony and faced the lake. I would sit there in the morning with my second espresso. The breakfast was excellent. Staff was ready to accommodate all my needs. I would return here.

Excellent restaurant .The menu just perfect with a rich selection of fine Italian food.No lunch available but in fact not necessary for visitors who take boats to see islands of Lago Maggiore. Breakfast and Diner is what the hotel offers....

Not a large hotel, but with so much character and charm, Speranza au Lac was a delightful place to stay. I had asked for 2 lake-view rooms and got them (that doesn't always happen) so we were instantly pleased. The rooms aren't big, but perfectly adequate with good beds and the bathroom facilites were fine. Breakfast in the restaurant on...

Excellent position between the ferry and the 'town'. The dining room staff could not be faulted and the food was excellent and plentiful. The view from our balcony was beautiful and the sun shone all week. What more can one ask?

The hotel is ideally situated overlooking Lake Maggiore and in the pretty town within metres of shops and the many restaurants. this is not a problem noise wise. The views are amazing looking over to the Borrromean Islands. The staff, food and public rooms are excellent. Although our room wasn't the largest the hotel has, it was spacious enough, clean...

We spent a night in September at the Hotel Milan Speranza Au Lac in Lake Maggiore. While we loved the lake the hotel left a lot to be desired. The room was small and the bathroom was no bigger then a closet. Making the experience even worse, there was loud music playing until 110:00PM keeping us up after a long...

Dear Michael, it seems that the music played on the pedestrian street just beside our hotel spoiled your stay with us and negatively affected your review. Stresa is an holiday destination and you cannot pretend that during the summerly months with good weather and mild temperatures at 10.00p.m. everything is silenced when, in any case, the municipal rules impose to...
