This is an ideal hotel to settle into on Lake Como. My only regret is not spending more time there. The location is right on the lake--the ferry stops at the front door, as does the local bus. The rooms and bathrooms are good size and ours (204) had the absolute luxury of a balcony with chairs overlooking the lake.... More

This is a great location part of its charm. We spent six days here early June. The rooms may be a little older but beautifully clean and spacious including the bathroom, but the owners, location, and their restaurant far outweigh any new furnishings. This is the place to stay far away from the maddening crowds right in front of the... More

The reason why I'm giving not giving this hotel a higher rating is because of location. It's not easy to get to, nor is it quick and easy to reach other attractions in the area. The reason why my rating is not lower is because we got a great room - 204. The view of the lake is excellent and... More

Spent 2 nights in this comfortable and quaint bed and breakfast style of hotel. Owners were very friendly and helpful. In house restaurant served some of the best food I had in Italy. Spending the extra money for the lake view room was well worth it. Off the beaten path. Be prepared for a limited amount of ferries in the... More

We stayed at the Orso Bruno for three nights during a motoring tour of the Italian lakes. What a delight! We had booked a balcony room with Lake View and were not disappointed. The rooms are not huge, but have all that is necessary for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was large and well appointed and everything was beautifully clean.... More

We had an extraordinary time in Lake Como. The owners of Orso Bruno went above and beyond to accomodate our stay at a beautiful location. The view was spectacular and the staff was beyond helpful with any request. The location sits directly across from the water taxi and the bus stop is directly in front of the hotel. We would... More

We booked the hotel for 2 nights based on the positive reviews on tripadvisor and the reasonable (almost low) price level. The hotel itself is a beautiful building in a great location. In a nice small village with the boat stop right on the doorstep. For less than 4 Euro you are in the center of Como and the boat... More

Extremely friendly staff, good understanding of English. Simple, clean rooms, good bathrooms. Basic but good breakfast, excellent restaurant. As it's a bit off the main road, it's quiet, but you do have do drive 5-10 mins down narrow lanes.

My husband and i stayed here for our 10th anniversary. The owners of the hotel/restaurant were charming and accommodating. We booked on-line through the hotel's website, so you receive the best price. We tried to book last minute for 3 days in a row at the end of September, but were unable to secure a room for the middle night.... More
