    Location on the lake is nice, but be aware, it is not really possible to walk into town from this hotel, as the road it is on is narrow with no safe place for pedestrians. It is easy to get a taxi, and drivers are friendly, but they do charge a lot for the very short trip to town. We visited during a heat wave so kept balcony doors open, but this let in a lot of bugs.

    The owner is incredibly nice and helpful. The breakfast is wonderful and served in a lovely room. The lake view is great. No a/c but fans provided in rooms were appreciated. Husband and son swam in the lake. Daughters and I did not as we were already suffering many mosquito bites. Stresa in general is beautiful and highly recommended. Do the ferry tour of the islands!!

    Our room, which was not in the main Villa was so damp and loud from a stream under the building and trains passing by every 10 minutes. The damp smell and slightly damp feel of the sheets made for a bad sleep.

    Located between Stresa and Baveno the only way to get to these towns is to walk on the narrow road. This is a little stressful and you would not want to do with children. This is the same for all the accommodation in this strip. Not very romantic to have dinner and walk home on the narrow road (only 1 km) in single file in the dark.

    The owners were extremely friendly and helpful especially with train and taxi movements. Beautiful views from the balcony which was great for a happy hour.

    There was no air conditioning and the weather was quite hot. Fortunately it wasn't too noisy at night (no car noise but the incessant flow of water at teh garden fountain) as we let the balcony door open to refresh the room. The shower is very small due to the multi-jet system taking half of the space of a 70x70cm cubicle: very difficult to move around. The owner seems always very busy running from one place to another: he is efficient but difficult to chat with, especially at breakfast time when the service was a bit hurried.

    Comfortable bed and good bathroom, even though a bit small. The view from the room (we were in room 1 in the annex) was very nice, towards the island. Good breakfast; a few bagged biscuits with some fresh bread and sweets and enough drinks. Good location if you have a car as parking is easy and located halfway between the two ports; walking on the road is not advisable.

    The room would have benefited from air conditioning and extra sockets for appliances. Found the room extremely hot and humid. Without transport the hotel is a bit isolated and I wouldn't recommend walking to nearest town as there are no pavements for a stretch of the road.

    Very spare rooms.No comfort extras or decoration in the rooms - public areas were more elaborate.

    Good position between Baveno and Stresa. Lovely property surroundings.

    Internet connection should be improved as the speed is very variable and limited to low rates

    In fact on Via Sempione, 64 there are several accommodation spaces having generic name Villa Ruscello. It’s a family property owned by two brothers. Entering the reception room I was impressed by hosts’ friendly spirit and hospitality, their readiness to help the newcomer. I had a not very large room, with balcony having a beautiful view to Lago Maggiore. The room is kept flawless clean. Breakfast is served in a beautifully decorated room and although not particularly abundant it’s according to the price paid. The parking is across the street, is very large and is kept secure, the gate being locked overnight.

    Maybe a fan in the room would be good idea if the air con is not working or on. The road may be quite scary for some people.

    Location by the lake. The owner gave us a hint to go visit the island in front of the hotel for dinner and borrowed us their rowing boat. Great dinner!

    • Couple

    As we were there over the hottest period in a number of years the lack of Air Con was not so good. Also with windows open the noise of traffic and trains was more than evident

    Location of the Hotel right on the Lakeside was great. The walks into either Baveno or Stresa were short enough although the road has no designated pavements so always take a torch in the evenings. Staff were very friendly and informative of things to do, see or visit etc. Very relaxed feeling

    our room was in the annex building and to the back, on the ground floor, and very dark, furniture a little outdated

    garden and lakefront location are very nice with great view to Islands and Alps. Breakfast very good, rooms in main building seemed very good.

    This is a villa consisting of two buildings. I stayed in the second (not main) building. Nice room, a shower with massage sprinkle heads, a fantastic view of the lake and the islands (Isola dei Pescatori and Isole Bella). The stream under the window is quite relaxing. There are several areas where you can relax and enjoy the day/evening/glass of wine. Beautiful garden. Very good coffee for breakfast. Nothing to complain about. The Hotel has its own beach across the road. And you can walk to Baveno center in about 20 minutes.

    My husband and I chose this hotel to celebrate our first anniversary. The hotel is beautiful, with a lake-view terrace, a small river, and very clean rooms. There is a parking in front of the hotel and you can have access to the lake. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, very great people you don't meet that often!

    The only thing is the size of the shower in the room. It is to small, I am 6ft2 and 95 kilo and yes I am a big fellow but my wife is 5ft9 and 64 kilo and she said its to small, you drop the soap and you cant pick it up

    The hotel is owned by the family and run by the family, this is a small hotel in a perfect location overlooking the fabulous isolas of lago maggiore. Close to stresa and boveno either way you can walk. There is a great little restaurant called cava in boveno, I think this is how it is spelt, great little hotel
