On the banks of Lake Maggiore, the hotel, built in 1861 and completely refurbished in 1991, located inside a vast park, commands a superb position in Stresa, directly facing the Borromeo Islands. Traditionally the most famous resort of the lake, Stresa is a small town with a waterfront of about 2 km. The town centre is 200 metres away. The international airport of Malpensa is 45 km away (45 min by car).  

Room Description
174 stunning rooms faithfully recreate the Belle Epoque era; Impero or Maggiolini style, lavish drapes, warm, rich colours, fabrics and Murano chandeliers enhance the authenticity. Most lake-facing rooms enjoy a private balcony, and all bathrooms are tiled in Italian marble and have a whirlpool. Suites are magnificent, boasting fine art, inlaid ceilings, statues, vast whirlpool baths and separate showers in imperial suites.

Business Facilities
20 elegant conference rooms are suited for deluxe incentive groups and high level conferences for 5 to 200 people.
