The hotel is located directly near the lake in a small community, where there is not much else to see or do. Beautiful view over the lake though. We were with 3 persons, but I asked for a quadruple room (with lake view) since we believed that we would have more space then. This was confirmed to us. But we... More

What a lovely little hotel ! My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in August. It was our first time around the lake. The hotel itself is quaint, typical Italian. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful and speak good English. Everything was clean. We paid extra for a lake room with a balcony. The room was... More

We anxiously awaited our trip to Lake Como and this particular hotel because of all the tremendous reviews and Trip Advisor Awards it had received. It may at one time have been a lovely spot, but my boyfriend and I were beyond less than impressed with this hotel and their service all around. PRO'S: -Across the street from the lake,... More

Located right at the ferry dock, this is a very nice hotel with extremely warm and welcoming owners. We found it from a positive review in the NY Times. The restaurant offers terrific homemade breakfast foods on buffet and the pizza restaurant is quite good. They have a full bar -- a hard thing to find in Urio -- but... More

We have now visited this small family run hotel twice, both times thoroughly enjoying our stay. The hotel has a certain authentic Italian charm and the young couple running the place Samuele and Antonia certainly make you feel welcome. It is situated just under one hour's drive from Milan Malpensa airport and about 10-15 minutes' drive from Como itself. During... More

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
