Hotel Astoria in Stresa, Lake Maggiore ©Solange Hando
This lovely 4-star hotel is only 100 metres from the old town in Stresa and just across the road from the pleasant lakeside promenade. It is close to bus stops in both directions.
Twin Room at the Astoria ©Solange Hando
The Astoria has 100 rooms, including seven junior suites. All rooms have balconies overlooking the garden at the back or if you wish to pay a little more the lake at the front. Free wifi and air conditioning in all rooms.
The Astoria Restaurant ©Solange Hando
This is a large restaurant overlooking the garden and lake with panoramic windows. Choose from à la carte or menu of the day which usually includes regional and international dishes. Superb buffet for breakfast.
There is a bar in the lounge area and in summer another by the pool.
There is a quiet heated pool at the back of the hotel with whirlpool and solarium. Facilities also include a panoramic roof garden, Turkish bath, fitness room, table tennis and games area.
Looking right across to the lake, the front lawn of Astoria is beautiful, close to the bar with cosy chairs inviting you to relax in the day or until late at night. Definitely a highlight.
