With an excellent view of Lago di Como, (the river boat stop is 30 metres from the hotels front door), attentive guest service, understated rooms with tasteful decor and excellent well-priced accomodation and food, in an area where there is much to explore....it's a superb base from which to explore the Lake, Bellagio, Cernobbio or Como

This small,nice hotel, just beside the lake with friendly owners and great views was a excelent choice to explore the area around the Como Lake. Easy to reach by car, bus or boat. We took the bus C10 from the St. Giovanni train station. Be carefull to get off at Carate Urio Pontile. From the other train station (Como Nord... More

Thank you Antonia and Samuele for an amazing stay at the Orso Bruno! During our stay we were lucky enough to spend 4 days waking up to beautiful views of the lake at your hotel. Your attention to detail does not go unnoticed. From local suggestions to helping with our lost luggage to wonderful breakfast in the morning, it made... More

Wonderful lake view, very nice welcome, as well as big and confortable rooms and bathrooms. And cherry on the cake: a delicious breakfast capuccino. Better bed pillows and bathroom towels would still be a plus.

We stayed in the hotel in February, so only claim I have, that it was a little bit cold in the room. Everything all was really excellent. Stuff was very friendly and helpful. We came at about midnight and were allowed to checkout late, at 1 pm. We had the room with lake view and a balcony. It surely worth... More

Stayed at the hotel very recently and found it to be a really pleasant stay! The view from the hotel room was stunning over the lake and the owners are lovely and very welcoming! (Do anything for you!) Breakfast is continental and nice! We went out of season so it was very quiet and the weather wasn't great but couldn't... More

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
