Location perfect for walking into Stresa town centre and access to Lake Maggiore
A lot of noise at night as sound seemed to travel through the hotel.
It was cheap accommodation in the centre of Stresa. You are literally in the middle of the shopping precinct of the town so everything - services, ferry terminal, shops, banks, restaurants - is no more than 2-3 minutes walk. However the railway station is 15 (easy) minutes walk away.
The location - above the hotel's restaurant and the others all around it and the shops - means it is not quiet and you cannot expect the area to quieten down till well after midnight so light sleepers will have a problem. The hotel is old and has the usual bathroom with a small shower and no room to swing a cat. Our window facing the 3 metres wide street was directly across other private residences so it was necessary to keep curtains, blinds and windows closed for privacy and quiet.
good economy hotel in great location.
Central location just yards from the town's main square with plenty of shops, restaurants etc. Two minutes walk from the lake. No car park but free public parking 2 minutes walk away.
Shower was tiny and no lift.
The location is perfect, friendly hotel staff, cheap accommodation, early check-in time.
Quite noisy room, but I still had a good sleep. Keys are not stored safely while the guests are away from the room.
staff were very welcoming and helpful-mosquito gauze on windows was very good
Location ideal next to the lakeshore and central square.
Rooms small but clean. The furniture is looking very tired and in need of refurbishment to bring it up to a more modern standard.
didn't like the room and the "so called" shower and toilet
The staff were very friendly and helpful.The location of the hotel allowed for a peaceful nights sleep.
The decor of the room could have done with a little refreshment. and in common with a number of hotels I he used in Italy shared an obsession with incredibly low wattage bulbs.
A stay at Hotel Da Cesare places you in the heart of Stresa, steps from Villa Ducale and Stresa Ferry Terminal. Featured amenities include express check-in, luggage storage, and a safe deposit box at the front desk.
