Hotel Elena is right in the centre of Stresa but staying that it is still seems tucked away the location is great, and the staff were very helpful in every way telling us the best place to park the car and how to to get in and out. The rooms are clean and tidy WiFi is good. Stresa is full...

We were making our way back from Venice, having taken part in the Crumball Banger Rally. We decided to stay in Lake Maggliori and as we left Venice we used Trip Advisor and found this hotel. There were 3 of us sharing one room, it was very reasonably priced, and the reviews were good so we booked it. It certainly...

This is an awesome little B&B a short walk from the station. The location is fantastic, right in the heart of restaurants, bars etc. Service was fantastic and the breakfast superb. Basic, but clean. Would definitely revisit. We didn't have a room over the restaurants etc. we had a back room with a view over the town itself, was was...

One of the best hotels I've visited. Extremely friendly yet unobtrusive staff. Great central position overlooking the central square of Stresa (ask for a balcony room) lovely breakfast, excellent cappuccino. Very grateful for the packed breakfast provided on the day we were leaving!

This is not a luxury Hotel but the breakfast was excellent the staff very friendly I would definitely use this hotel again and...

We are just back from a week at the Elena. We had a family room overlooking the square which was lovely. We could sit on the balcony in the late afternoon, early evening sun and watch the buzz in the square. We thought it might have been noisy at night but it wasn't bad as most of the bars and...

I stayed at the Elena for two nights recently. If you value location, this is for you, as it sits on the central piazza in the city - restaurants abound, you're five minutes from the boat landing and/or a stroll along Lago Maggiore. My room was small, but then all of my rooms are small. This one had a nice-sized...

The café and bar sits below the hotel and is centrally located in Stresa and a short walk to the lake. It has a pleasant indoor area and a small outdoor area and provided a good spot for coffee and watch the people pass by in the rain.

Nicely located in Stresa's "main" square (it's a very small town), Hotel Elena was exactly what we needed to wrap up our two weeks in Northern Italy. Easy access to the nearby public (free) parking area, and to the lakeshore for ferries or walking. We got a room on an upper floor away from the square and had no issues...

“A room facing the yard is quieter and has a nice view to the mountains”
  • A small bathroom and shower and not much area to keep your amenities
  • All the rooms have a small balcony. This room is facing to the yard
  • The room is a double but I was staying alone. If a couple it is a bit too small
