Hotel La Locanda was the perfect end of our little family toad trip before our final drive to Zurich airport. It’s a sweet, cozy family-run hotel on a hidden alley of a street just a few minutes walking distance from the center of pretty Stresa. The lakeside promenade was just around the corner for easy strolls and the ferry lines to the various islands equally close in the other direction. Our 4-year old and us slept very comfortably in our cozy light-filled room. Breakfast offered a variety of options with coffee, fruit, fresh croissants, jam and yogurt to help us start the day. The palatial hotels of Stresa are beautiful to look at but La Locanda is the place for me :)
What a gem on the outskirts of the main tourist area, so lovely and quiet. Two star hotel with five star service. Everywhere spotlessly clean, good sized room with small balcony. Freshly baked croissant (divine), cereals, rolls, jams, lemon cake and marmalade tart with ample fresh fruit for breakfast. Hotel is family owned and their aim is to please. Location is perfect - 10 min walk from railway station (for fantastic Lake Maggiore Express trip to Switzerland, back by boat), 5 mins from cable car (a trip not to be missed) and 5 mins from local boats trips to islands. About 15 mins stroll from main centre, along the lake and past all the big old hotels to reach the town centre where there are plenty of restaurants, the main boat dock, and all the shops. After your evening out you can have a night cap in the bar before making your way to your room to sleep in your very comfy bed. All in all a real gem.

Wir waren 5 Nächte im La Locanda, die Zimmer sind sehr sauber und haben eine schöne Größe. (wir hatten allerdings zu zweit ein 4Bett Zimmer) Das Frühstück war gut, es gab sogar ein bisschen Käse, sehr gute Croissants und leckeren Kaffee. Saft, Obst, Joghurts und Müsli waren u.a. auch zu haben. Wir kommen gerne mal wieder.
