Poor for the money and location

Location fabulous on Lake Maggiore, check in staff great, bathroom smelled of sewage, bed was very uncomfortable, minibar was exhorbitant, breakfast very expensive. One member of reception staff extremely ignorant. This should be a superb hotel, let down by a few annoying details which should not happen.

Das Hotel hat die besten Tage schon länger hinter sich. Das Personal ist demotiviert. Am Pool (offen bis 20 h ) werden die Sonnenschirme um 18 eingesammelt und die Bar um 19 h geschlossen. Ein Bier im Plastikbecher ohne Schaum kostet Euro 8.-- und auf jedem Tisch ist der Aschenbecher voll. Schlicht und einfach schlecht geführt und auf keinen Fall zu Empfehlen.

Kurzaufenthalt in Stresa

Das Hotel befindet sich in einer guten, relativ zentralen Lage und ist zu Fuss in Kürze erreichbar. Das Zimmer mit Seeblick ist gut ausgestattet, inklusive Klimaanlage. Für die hohe Preiskategorie des Zimmers wäre gratis WLAN zu wünschen gewesen, gratis sind jedoch nur die ersten 3 Minuten am Tag, danach betragen die Kosten 25 Cent pro Minute.
