We stayed in Hotel Elena for a week. Stresa was a perfect choice for exploring the Lake Maggiore area (by boat 3 minutes walk to the ferry terminal) as well as taking the train (15 minute walk to train-station) to Milan where we stayed the next week. The hotel has an excellent location on a nice piazza, in the middle...

Hotel Elena - a welcoming place for a weary traveler. Laura, Marco and staff went out of their way to welcome this weary traveler. The service is impeccable and the smiles are on the house. Laura and staff know the area quite well and were eager to help any way that they could. Friendly, safe and unbeatable location!

We stayed in the Hotel Elena for three nights. One day's cold weather and rain meant we avoided the boat trips, but we really enjoyed wandering around the cobbled streets, trying the many good restaurants which are less than 100m from the hotel. Fancy hotels are nearby with a wide choice of restaurants. Souvenirs were cheaper than Florence or Rome....

After walking along the front at Stresa we once again visited Bar Elena, where we had been on our previous visit to Stresa. The bar staff actually recognised us and made us most welcome. As the terrace was full, we were invited to sit inside. We were given the menu very promptly and as we knew what we wanted, we...

We try to stay hotels that have a local atmosphere. (If visiting Venice try and get the attic room at B&B Sandra). Hotel Elena certainly lived up to our expectations. It is located on the main Piazza in the centre of the town. The room was large with a balcony overlooking the Piazza, perfect for evening drinks or snacks from...

This a very comfortable budget hotel right in the center of all the action. The breakfast was excellent, my room with its ceiling fan was most comfortable and there was a small balcony. The room was very nicely appointed. It had everything you could want.

“A room facing the yard is quieter and has a nice view to the mountains”
  • The room is a double but I was staying alone. If a couple it is a bit too small
  • All the rooms have a small balcony. This room is facing to the yard
