Travellers' Choice
La Fontana is a beautiful 3*** hotel located on the main lake walk of Stresa. Born in the 70s following the renovation of Villa Lattuada, a private residence of the 1930s, it still preserves the architecture of the period and some original furnishing elements such as fireplaces and chandeliers. Located few steps from the center of Stresa and less then 50 meters from the lake front, Hotel La Fontana is rally close to the train station, to the pier for the Borromean Islands and to the Mottarone funicular. Hotel La Fontana has a big parking lot inside the hotel’s park and it is free for hotel guests. In the park guests can find several relaxing areas equipped with chairs, tables, umbrellas and deck chairs that allow guests to enjoy their holiday to the fullest.

We had a great stay at Hotel La Fontana. Rooms have been recently renovated and were very clean. We had a great view of the lake from our room, it was lovely to see each morning. There was a lot of choice of both sweet and savoury food at breakfast, and we could sit on the terrace to eat it, enjoying the sunshine. Staff have gone to every effort to ensure a safe stay at this time. It is a 10/15 minute walk to the centre of Stresa, where there is plenty of choice for eating out. We shall return!

Nothing fancy here, just comfort, convenience, and an extremely helpful staff (Elena). The hotel offered reasonably sized rooms (for Europe) at a very reasonable price. The place was clean with a pleasant ambiance. Elena gave us restaurants tips (really good selection in town), directions to the ferries (just a very short stroll away) and helped us book trains for our next stop (Firenze). Breakfast choices were abundant and tasty. This is not the Ritz, but it is not a Holiday Inn or Budgetel either. If you're a walker, you'll love the location -- the city center is an easy reach. And if you're driving, there is parking on the premises.

This hotel was very good. I had a large room with a view of the lake. The interior of the hotel is wonderful, the breakfast area was great and the breakfast was very good. We got to meet one of the owners who was able to tell us about the history of the building as well as what to do in the Stresa area. The price was very good considering the quality of the hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Lovely spot, nicely decorated, helpful staff. Simple and comfortable. Great cold breakfast options and good coffee (when you order from the barista) Only downsides were the thin walls (could hear our neighbours in the morning) and hot breakfast was average.

I enjoyed my recent stay in Stresa and found the La Fontana a comfortable spot located within walking distance to everything I wanted to do. The owners are welcoming and easily accommodated my need to leave early in the morning by checking me out the night before. The breakfast room is lovely and the food a delicious variety of treats to give you a good start in the morning. I especially appreciated the espresso bar service. My room was clean and attractive with a beautiful view of the lake and mountains beyond. I was traveling by myself so found it big enough, but I think I would ask for a more spacious room if I came back with my husband. The bathroom especially was tiny. My main concern about my room was that the walls were so thin I could hear every flush from next door. Still, that wasn't enough to spoil a very pleasant stay at La Fontana.
