This small hotel is a gem. It's across the street from the lake and has both a bus stop and a water taxi stop right in front. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate. Be sure to ask about long term stays (over 10 days)! The proprietors are very accommodating to their guests. They called around and found a shop... More

Average service but guests have no privacy. I found that the hotel staff had even looked up the internet sites we had checked at the lobby's internet station. Very dissappointing. Very indescrete. In our opinion, not worth the money.

If you are travelling by foot, take the ferry to Urio in Lake Como. When you get off the first building you face is the hotel. It has a bar downstairs and you can sit out and drink. They also have a very good restaurant, serving mainly fish courses (although lots of other choices available e.g pizza). The village is... More

WOW, go to lake Como - the pearl of the lakes, and aptly named. We had a lake view room in this small but very friendly and clean hotel. The facitilies are simple but adequate. the owners are charming and helpful, the resturant is fantastic, simple buffett breakfast but great lunch and dinner menu. Packed every night with locals (although... More

My husband and I drove past this hotel on our way trying to find a hotel in Como. We did not book. It is a very clean and friendly, well run hotel. The owners - a couple- are kind and such considerate hosts. I say hosts as they made us feel like treasured guests and nothing was too much trouble.... More

We stayed here for 1 night in March 2007 just by chance. We were looking for a place along the lake and happened on this Hotel. Very friendly couple and decent price (80 Euro) convinced us. We had a great time there. Nice room and an excellent meal. I had probably the best Creme Brulee I have ever had there.... More

I have stayed at this lovely little hotel 3 times over the last few years. Most of the rooms have stunning views of the lake which is barely 15 m from the hotel. My preference is the 2nd floor in the corner room or the one facing directly onto the lake. The little restaurant on the first floor is jolly... More

This is not your normal touristy hotel it is quiet and friendly. Hotel rooms have been recently updated. On arrival we were treated like treasured guests. The owner and his wife live on the premises and are very friendly. We booked into a double room which was very clean as was the bathroom. Our room had a lovely balcony which... More
