“Perfect stay.”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

Service and quality in this hotel was well above average, for the price paid. Location and helpfulness of the staff ( giving directions, parking instructions to find free spots, and even translating my postcard into Italian ) were the best features, but the room and breakfast were very acceptable too.

My partner and I stayed here to attend a wedding in August 2011. The hotel was in a perfect situation, central to shops, restaurants and bars plus near everything including the 'beach'.
Our room was spacious, clean and did overlook the lake albeit in the distance - a clever photo made the lake appear much closer. Only downside was that our room was directly beneath the clock tower that struck twice a day, very loudly!!
Breakfast is continental, plentiful and varied. Staff were friendly and efficient without being 'in your face'.
Air conditioning wasn't working at all during our stay but apparently aircon engineers are in short supply in Stresa.

Room Tip: For the view choose a room at the front of the hotel but take ear plugs!!

What we loved:
*The extremely central location, close to the centre and restaurants, and close to the parking/
*The spacious and clean room
*The great light filled bathroom with plenty of warm water
*The super friendly staff

What we like a little less:
*The somewhat outdated decoration of the room (it was very pink!)
*The breakfast (it was ok but not great, we ate it because it was included but wouldn't have paid for it)

What we really didn't like:
*The noise (our room was overlooking the inside patio, not the street, but it was still very noisy and we could hear every movement in the corridor and neighbouring rooms
*The very hard pillows. They were stone-like, seriously our head would not even sink it because they were so hard. We woke up every morning with a sore neck because of them. The mattresses were pretty firm too, but that's something we like so it was ok for us.

The hotel is situated in a quiet sidestreet near the lake front and beside good eating and drinking places. The staff are friendly and helpful, they mostly speak good English. Bedrooms and public rooms are very clean. Bedrooms are rather sparsely furnished but of good size and comfortable. There is adequate free parking on streets within 200 metres. There is fast free wifi in the hotel lobby.

Great hotel, perfect location in the centre of town, not far from the harbour and main carpark, adorable multilingual staff, excellent food, we had the chef's set menu every evening in the gazebo outside. Superb value for money! Can warmly recommend it.

Room Tip: 315 has a wonderful view of the lively piazza.

Upon arrival, we were told that we had to stay at the nearby Hotel Astoria for our first night and then move our belongings back to Hotel Moderno for our second night. We were not happy with this arrangement. However, I must say that both hotels were very nice. Hotel Astoria had a beautiful pool and Hotel Moderno picked us up in the morning to transport us and our bags to their hotel with a bottle of sparkling wine on ice and a note of apology. Breakfast was excellent and the view from our room overlooked the square which was quite nice. We visited the Borromeo Islands and had a delicious seafood meal on Isola Pescatore. July, 2012

Hotel Moderno is a real gem . . . relatively inexpensive for such a famous and popular tourist destination. The rooms are spacious. The staff is friendly and helpful! The breakfast has great variety, and one can "brew" ones' own cappuccino, which is a treat, especially if one wants a second cup before facing another challenging "tourist day." Thank you to the nice folks at Hotel Moderno.

Room Tip: I know that rooms 116 and 216 open onto the wonderful Piazza Cardona (http://stresasights.blogspot.c...
