This was a great place to enjoy the beauty of Lake Maggiore, conveniently located within the town of Stresa and close to the ferries.The breakfast was better than average and the staff was amazing: very friendly, multilingual,and always eager to do anything possible to make our stay fun and memorable. We wish our 6 days could have been 12!

We enjoyed a room with a balcony and lake view. Even when raining, we had a beautiful view of surroundings. The breakfast is good, served in a room that overlooks the lake. On our last day, we had to leave before breakfast was served. They were kind enough to pack us a breakfast to take along. I would recommend this hotel for reasonable prices and good service.

We stayed in Stresa 3 nights. The hotel staff is really very friendly, the man on the reception (may be even the owner) welcomed us really really nicely - he gave us a map of Stresa, showed us where is the hotel, what would be interesting to see, showed us a room, etc. The self-service breakfast was rich (from bread to sweets, yoghurt, fruit, juice etc.). We had a great stay, the hotel is just couple of meters from the port - start of all trips arond the Borromean Islands so its really a perfect stay for good price. Definitely would choose it again!

Really enjoyed our stay at the hotel sempione. The staff were all fantastic, really welcoming and very helpful. The rooms were cosy and enough for what we needed somewhere to sleep and get ready, with all the things avalible to do in stresa there was no need to do anything else in the hotel! This hotel is perfect for people on a budget but it doesn't look or feel cheap at all! I would go back there in a flash!

Great location on the main street overlooking Lake Maggiore. Our room had a balcony towards the lake, very beautiful. Mattress/beds were dated & room was tiny, no A/C on a hot night & no fans make it hard to sleep. But the breakfast was excellent & location convenient.

The real strengths are the lakeside location, and the friendliness of the staff - we were given a bottle of wine and a hug on departing. It's cheap for a lakeside hotel in a tourist town so you don't get luxury. Our room was big enough, small TV, but meticulously cleaned every day. Parking is not provided but we got free spaces, no time limit within 100 meters. Breakfast was good, espressos and ham, cheese as well as pastries.

I had stayed at Sempione previously and was disappointed that my room was not available because the bathroom was under repair. However, the clerk had booked me alternate accomodation at the same price at a very nice hotel just around the corner. My rating is based on my stay at the alternate hotel, which was just as good as the Sempione.

Whilst the staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly, the breakfast was good and the location very nice, the hotel interior badly needs updating. My room was spacious and quiet but not all rooms are the same. The interiors of the rooms and hallways need brightening up generally, new mattresses and shower screens installed and a general overhaul to get rid of the old, tired feeling, in order for this hotel to be considered good value compared to other hotels in the area in the same price bracket.

Hotel sign broken, so proved difficult to find. When arrived, could not find the advertised free parking, because they had none. They then gave me a tall story about why they did not have a room for me and sent me elswhere. I'm guessing they sold my room for a higher price. Undoubtably terrible experience.

Hotel Sempione is the best value for money hotel we have ever stayed in - and there are plenty to compare with! What a fantastic location and very friendly staff. It is not luxury but it is very clean and comfortable. If you are not a "hotel snob" you will not be disappointed here and we would highly recommend it to those of you who want great value but NOT at a dump :)

Location is excellent, regarding boats to arrive from Como, which is reccomended as one gets his first view to the scenery of Lake Como in a magnificent way. Car-Ferry links to Bellagio in front of hotel, every half hour untill 23:30, so, no need to stay in high-priced Bellagio. Ferry links to other destinations. Staff very much willing to help with guides to the area and other needs. If you manage to have a room in the front of the hotel, you will have an exquisite view of the lake and Bellagio when one wakes in the morning, and also very romantic at night. Rooms very clean although some renovation needed, spacious enough. Breakfast good quality, limited choice. Cadennabia has little to offer at night, and the bus stops (in front of the hotel, both ways) at 19:00, but with the daily pass at €11 for the ferries one can easily shuttle between the nearby excellent locations for night life untill 23:30. One is willing to return to this hotel.

Sempione has a good location and the views from the balcony are great (make sure you get on the second floor or higher at the front of the hotel). However, although reasonably clean, it is very "tired" and in need of a major revamp throughout. We doubt whether our room had been redecorated for at least 20 years. The bed sank towards the middle and was uncomfortable. We stayed at 6 different hotels on our trip and this was the worst, but not the cheapest

very nice and hospitable staff. it seems, that manager and owner is the one person. So he's really attentive to clients. Although the furniture is not modern and breakfast is quite small (for choice of meal, quantity was ok), all staff is so well-wishing, friendly and helpful, that there is very good impression. if we go to Stresa again, we'll stay there for sure.
