After spending a glorious week skiing in Cervinia, I had a last minute idea to stay one night in Lake Como on our way back to Milan. We booked a night at Hotel Orso Bruno after stumbling upon an old (albeit great) review of the hotel in the New York Times Travel section online...I wasn't sure if it would still... More

This family run hotel is located about a 15-minute drive from Como and is immediately across the road from the ferry and bus stops. We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Orso Bruno. Our room was clean and spacious, and had gorgeous views over the lake from one window and the village from the other window. A continental breakfast... More

We stayed here 3 nights. We had a car but we used also the water shuttle to Como exactly in front of the hotel. We enjoyed a lot, also will send friends if will ask about the location. The food in the pizza restaurant was excellent.

We found this beautiful family run hotel by accident, what a delight it turned out to be. Right on the lake in a quaint village setting, stunning views, wonderful hosts, exceptionally clean rooms, lovely breakfast. We only stayed one night and wished it could have been longer. Thank you Antonia and Samuel for adding to the wonderful memories of our... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights with out small Child that was at the time 6months old. We were met and treated very well and felt just as if we were visiting some friends. This is really a great hotel if you accept a fan for air conditioning and limited options closeby for food and shopping. So if... More

My husband and I just returned from Italy and we spent 3 nights at Hotel Orso Bruno. This is a lovely B&B directly on the lake. We had a car so getting around was not a problem. The road is a little noisy but the view is amazing. The restaurant is a wonderful gem. Antonia & Samuel cater to anything... More

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was clean and basic but the view was a #10. Ask for one of the front rooms with a balcony. You might hear a little road noise but the view is worth it. Their pizza restaurant served much more than pizza and was very good with a very ambitious menu. The hotel... More

I chose this hotel based on other reviews and was not disappointed! We rented two rooms for our family of five. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We were given boat schedules and directions, as well as tips on things to see and do. The passenger ferry across the street was super... More

We researched before going so knew what to expect before arrival. Situated in a quiet area but close to the water bus stop that will ferry you around the lake this place is a little gem. Friendly, welcoming owners, as others have said, with a nice bar with lake views and a restaurant next door which was very nice. If... More
