CHECK AVAILABILITY

Less than an hour's drive from Milan Malpensa airport you can find yourself in one of the most picturesque destinations in northern Italy. The Hotel Moderno is delighted to offer you charming and affordable accommodation in Stresa, located in a peaceful piazza and only 100 metres (109 yards) from the jetty leading onto this beautiful lake.

Stresa is a former 15th century fishing village, and enjoys a popular reputation with tourists from all over the world. Famous for its elegant and affluent villas, including the Villa Ducale, the Villa Dell'Orto and the Villa Pallavicino, which is now a zoological site, the area has a distinctly aristocratic feel. Which is why finding this competitively price 3 star hotel on Lake Maggiore is sure to bring you out in a majestic glow! In addition to its surroundings, the hotel offers free wireless Internet access, computer station, child care for a fee, and one conference room.

Tumbling terracotta rooftops and spectacular views make this the perfect destination for a lakeland and mountain retreat, and you can enjoy a pleasant ferry ride to the Borromean Islands, as well as admire the landscape from an elevated vantage point courtesy of the Stresa Mottarone cable car. The wonderful climate understandably attracts visitors from far and wide, and the Lake Maggiore surroundings are home to lush Mediterranean vegetation and many rare and exotic plants.

You can find numerous gardens to explore, including those on the Isola Madre and Villa Taranto, as well as the Alpine Botanical garden just above Stresa itself. You could be forgiven for imagining that the second largest of Italy's lakes is this epitome of calm, but in July and August you can find a different kind of rhythm at the lively open air Spirit of Woodstock Festival at Mirapuri, as well as Stresa's own Settimane Musicali classical music concerts which take place every summer.

Hotel Moderno reviews

Unfortunately our overall experience was not a good one. After booking and pre paying we were contacted direct by the owner of the hotel and advised that the Hotel would have to close for the first 4 days of our 6 day visit due to maintenance. We were to be moved to another hotel for 4 nights and then return to the Moderno for the last 2. We reluctantly agreed to this. If we had not already pre-paid, however, we would definitely have cancelled and rebooked another hotel to avoid disruption to our holiday of having to move and pack/unpack twice, exactly what we had wanted to avoid. It would have been much better customer service if they had just moved us into the other hotel for the entire stay or at least they could have a made a token offer of compensation. Aside from that, location is good, near to the Lakeside and Ferry terminal; a 9 euro taxi ride to the train station. Breakfast very basic with poor quality juice and coffee, probably the worst coffee I have tasted in Italy, generally the home of good coffee. Fixed price dinner menu at 22 euros was good value though restaurant short on ambience.

The room was shabby and in need of renovation. Compared to the other hotels of same rating and similar price that we stayed at recently, the Mkder o was below standard. The hotel would cater more for low priced coach travel.

Very comfortable, family-run hotel in the centre of Stresa. 2 mins from the lake, where the swimming was lovely. The breakfast was rather average however.

We stayed in Stresa for three days only. In order to visit the surroundings I suggest at least a week. The hotel is in a central position that allow to reach easily islands and other locations using the boat but also around the lake. In this hotel I felt almost like at home, personnel is competent and really nice. We tried also the hotel restaurant, while typically is not a good idea, in this case we were really satisfied by the quality. Be aware to the islands restaurants, ask reception before choosing randomly.
