Hotel Eden is really good value for money. It’s got a nice location on Lake Maggiore in the quiet town of Baveno, which is just along the shore from Stresa. It’ll take about ten-minutes in a taxi to get to Stresa, which makes for a nice day out. But there’s enough shops, bars and restaurants in Baveno that you don’t need to venture far if you don’t want to.
The hotel is located right on the lake and has lovely views. The restaurant has tables set up outside during the summer so you can dine right next to the water. The rooms are traditionally furnished and lake view rooms are available for a supplement. Before you head out for the evening, grab a drink at the hotel’s bar and enjoy the sunset. If you’re there in the day, it’s nice and peaceful and a good place to catch up on your book and relax.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.
