Reviews - Hotel Italie et Suisse

Piazza Marconi, 1 , STRESA, 28838
HOTEL ITALIE ET SUISSE has an enviable position. It is located in the town centre of Stresa, directly on the lakeside, just a few steps from the embarkation to the Borromee Islands and to the other resorts overlooking Lake Maggiore.
Stresa is 35 km from the international airport of Milan-Malpensa and is easily accessible through the Sempione national road (s.s.33), the A26 motorway or the shuttle service (Alibus with reservation)

The hotel is well-furnished. Our clients have at their disposal a bar-room with Sat-TV and reading room with Internet Point. Breakfast buffet.

All the rooms are with private bathrooms, bathtub or shower, direct telephone line, Sat-TV, safe, air-conditioning and wi-fi Internet access. Nearly all the rooms are with balconies from where you can admire the Borromeo gulf with its islands, Pallanza, Santa Caterina del Sasso and all the peaks of the mountains surrounding Lake Maggiore.

The Hotel Italie et Suisse is the ideal starting point for excursions on Lake Maggiore and surroundings. From Stresa you can visit the Borromee islands – Isola Bella, Isola Pescatori and Isola Madre -, the Zoological and Botanic Garden of Villa Pallavicino, Mottarone with the Botanic Garden of Alpinia, the latter can be reached by car or cableway (The cableway is distant 1 km from the Hotel) and the Umbrella Musuem at Gignese.

You can visit by car or by boat the city of Verbania where you can go shopping and admire the Botanic Gardens of Villa Taranto or visit the town of Arona with the Fortress park and the statue of San Carlo Borromeo and the Fortress of Angera.

You can reach the town of Ascona and Locarno in Switzerland in less than an hour, and the Ossolane Valleys towards Domodossola: Val Formazza with the Toce Fall, Valle Vigezzo also called Valle dei Pittori (Valley of the Painters) (with the small Centovalli train), the National Park of Valgrande, Valle Anzasca with Macugnaga at the foot of Monte Rosa and finally Val Bognanco and Valle Antigorio renowned for its mineral springs.

Public beaches at 200 meters from the hotel. Apart from lake sports such as fishing, sailing, canoeing, water skiing, you have tennis courts, swimming pools in the immediate vicinity and trekking paths, a wide manège at Fondotoce, pitch and putt on the lakeside of Stresa and also 5 golf courses – Golf Club des Iles Borromées, Golf Club Alpino of Stresa, Golf Club Castelconturbia, Golf Club Bogogno, Golf Club Premeno.

Never again
The staff was not friendly. It looks now we have paid too much money for such an accomodation out of season.
I have selected this hotel just because of the location. The bain towels were very thin and when we have asked for thick ones, at the beginning they argued. No minibar in the room. We have asked for small buttle of waterand they charged 2 euro, and have asked the money on spot. Not enough sockets in the room. The room and the bathroom very tight, not comfortable. During the breakfast they have not allowed to use an extra plate from the buffet, but only the one in our table. For an omlet have asked extra money.
Consequently, it was not a pleasant stay.

A room with a great view
A stress free stay in Stresa, with a little balcony overlooking the lake at a bargain price.

Gute Bewertung
Hotel liegt sehr gut und zentral am See, leider aber auch zentral am Platz, der abends/Wochenende gerne mit Musik bespielt wird, leider mit Verstärker. Vielleicht gibt es ja die Möglichkeit, dies etwas in der Lautstärke runter zu fahren. Ansonsten dank der Lage gut zu empfehlen.
