Central location Charm Friendliness of owner Yummy breakfast and delicious cappuccino's
The location The outlook over the piazza below The manager, Laura and her son
Small family run hotel right on the Piazza. Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Best cappuccino in Italy.
Run by a very nice woman who prepared a take out breakfast for me when I was leaving early for a bus tour.
The lady that runs the hotel is lovely, helpful and attentive. Great breakfast and bar/cafe. The hotel conveniently opens onto the square and is within walking distance to the lake. The rooms are simple but spotlessly clean and functional. We will stay here again.
Super location on a main square and very near lake and boat departure point. Attentive staff and clean spacious room. Breakfast was varied with excellent coffee
Shower was a little small with fixed head
Location in heart of town. Welcome and recognition by staff even though we only visit for one night per year recently, though first stay was some 25 years ago before the bar became a proper hotel with en-suite rooms!
Great location on edge of Piazza. Balcony view over square was great. We will return. Good for base to visit islands and villages around the lake. Just be leisurely and sit by the lake. In house bar best place for a drink before going for dinner. Prices very reasonable. Popular accommodation for other Australians.
Great location in the middle of Stresa overlooking busy piazza, wonderful for people watching whilst sipping an aperol spritzer on the balcony. The room was quite basic but comfortable and had a fridge which was a a great bonus. The hotel owner was very helpful and kind.
The piazza was quite noisy at night at the weekend. Double glazing helped when closed but you might want to take earplugs if you like the windows open.
It was certainly a pleasure to visit Stresa and of course stay at Hotel Elena. Convenient to everything you could want or need to do whilst visiting this wonderful part of Italy. We would love to come back and stay again.
Could not find or think of anything to comment on here.
Friendly staff who made you feel comfortable. Good location
Church bells were quite loud but you get used to them.
Everything! The place was very easy to find, just 7 min walk from the station. Just 100 m from the lake and ferry station, with lots of shops and restorants, with a supermarket 1 min walk. The room was big and clean, with a balcony. Everything I need in the room was there - safe, which I did not use, minibar, hairdryer, fast Wi-Fi. The bed was comfortable.They changed towels every day. No AC, but the big fan did a great job. Breakfast was delicious with great cappuccino. I really do not understand why this place has one star, it deserves at least 3. Dear owners, thank you very much, you made my stay a perfect one!
Spacious family rooms Very family-friendly Great location
This hotel is located right on Stresa's main piazza--it couldn't be more central. Even though it was right in the heart of everything, the rooms were peaceful and quiet and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was terrific--fresh fruits, meats, cheeses, pastries, and great cappuccinos. I really enjoyed my stay there.
The rooms are small and the decor is dated, but everything was clean and the room was airy anyway, so it really wasn't a problem.
Fantastic location, staff were great to deal with very friendly and extremely helpful. Good breakfast with fantastic coffee. Great value for money
Excellent location in the old centre of town with good restaurants and 2 top class ice cream outlets in the square below. Friendly helpful staff. A really good bar.
It rained next morning!
room balcony overlooking piazza staff 1st class good breakfast would definitly return to the elena
Fabulous location, lovely staff. Music in the piazza at night. Bed made up each morning and fresh towels appeared like magic.
Location is good for taking the boat and meals. Nice breakfast too.
The location in the center of this small town. Hotel is nice . although somewhat run down. Personnel very helpful.
You should have a clear description of the route to the parking 100 m from the hotel. In reality one is not allowed to drive up to the hotel. We did it - hope we shall not find a ticket when we come home.
Location was right in the center of Stresa. The staff was very friendly and willing to help. Room and bathroom was a good size for 3 people.
Floor could have been cleaner. View from balcony was not great.
