Dear Juliee, thank you for visiting Stresa and lake Maggiore, and choosing our Hotel for your experience. We are glad to know it was a memorable one and hope you will have the occasion to come back again in the future!
We attended the Sky Bar for a few early evening drinks with another couple having visited 5 years prior. It's till absolutely beautiful, 360 degree views of Lake Maggiore and a long list of delicious drinks to enjoy with Aperitivo. Staff were friendly and accommodating, prices similar to any City Sky Bar. Would highly recommend for a special occasion (try to book if possible).
Dear Aimee, thank you for visiting the Sky Bar, we are glad you enjoyed our offer and the marvelous landscape of Lake Maggiore.
The hotel is really nice, modern, bright and with great staff at reception and in the restaurant. The location and the view from the lake view rooms are amazing.
Just two negative points to mention: the prices in the sky bar are way too high, 16 € for a cocktail is just over the top.
Also the handeling of the breakfast during corona is not optimal. It makes people wait way too long when the staff has to prepare a plate for every guest at the buffet. Might have been better to stay with an a la carte breakfast.
Dear chubbycheek31, thank you for staying with us and sharing your experience, we always appreciate constructive feedback from our guest. We hope you will the occasion to visit us again in the future!
The hotel has a fantastic swimming pool in front of the lake with accurate staff. Only disadvantage is that the hotel allows the kindergarten behavior of reserving sun beds with towels :-(. You do not expect that in such a place. Probably it has to do with the very disorganized breakfast every morning. Our waiting time on average was 20 minutes at least. This logistical nightmare is related to how the hotel deals with the COVID regulations of course. We did see however other hotels that were more creative in solving this. After a complaint we were offered a free room service breakfast, which was nice and on time in our room. The room we had was nice looking. It has everything you need and an ingenious shower. Unfortunately the hotel is noisy. You hear stumbling in other rooms in the morning especially when the cleaning service is near your room. These ladies produce the sound of a construction crew. On the roof of the hotel there is a sky bar with a large Jacuzzi and a fabulous view on the lake. All in all we enjoyed our stay.
Dear Epvdlinden, thank you for choosing La Palma for your stay on Lake Maggiore and for sharing your experience. During the season we have taken measures to discourage the behavior described at the pool, however, we understand that there have been similar incidents. We will try to remedy it definitively. Thank you for your comprehension regarding the Covid regulations, we are glad you appreciated the offered room breakfast! We hope you will have the occasion to visit us again in the future.
Family with two kids (6 and 2 yr old). 5 nights.
In my view, value for money certainly the best option at the moment on the lake. This is why :
- Stresa is a very attractive location on the lake.
- the hotel is ideally located ON the lake and 5’ walk from the center (restaurants, etc)
- hotel has been completely renovated with GREAT taste and sense of details. Lots of friends renovated their home over the years never to achieve the quality of the architect and contractor of La Palma have reached.
- two pools (roof top) and opposite the road. Frankly, the big pool across the road that can accommodate ~ 80 persons is the master piece of the renovation. Lots of « beautiful people » without too much fuzz.
- rooms : renovated. Simply great.
- breakfast : great products. Does the trick for 5 nights without lassitude.
- restaurant at the hotel ? Well like everyone you don’t want to eat dinner where you have breakfast ? Mistake, the food is absolutely exquisite although a bit more expensive than in town.
Final remark : we had friends over for three days. All used to fancy hotels as business travelers. La Palma bluffed us. Enjoy your stay !
Question to the team of La Palma : what do you miss to get a fifth star ?
Dear jnp79, thank you for sharing such an enthusiastic review, we are very proud of reading it! We put the maximum effort these years to give our guests a unique experience on Lake Maggiore. And we will keep on doing it, so we hope you will have the occasion to visit us again in the future!
A highly effective hotel in a great location.Surrounded by little palaces, this hotel take a more sober approach and does so beautifully. The staff is multi lingual and goes out of its way to pleasers customers. Make sure to spend evenings at the Sky Bar that attracts a lot of the locals in crowd.
Dear Allard, thank you for choosing us and sharing your positive experience!
