Stayed one night in this pleasant and interestingly decorated hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and had good views of the lake, which are not panoramic since there are some trees in between. I would not recommend it for those wanting complete peace and silence, but although there was some water noise as well as traffic and the occasional train, none of these were unduly intrusive. It is a walk of five minutes or so down the road (there is no lake promenade here) to the outskirts of Stresa where you can take a ferry to the islands or a cable car up the mountain, so the hotel is very handily located. (Should you eat in Baveno, and we would recommend the restaurant at the far right corner of the square if you do, you will either need to have a driver who’s not drinking, or get a taxi back, as walking isn’t really an option.) All in all, a very enjoyable stay in a comfortable hotel ideally placed for sampling the delightful attractions of this part of Lake Maggiore.
