We had a wonderfull stay in this piccilo Hotel, it was just pico bello. The views on the lake, the ferries on the jetty in front of the Hotel makes it easy to make beautiful day trips, the very friendly service, fluent in English and the warm hospitality of the owner Danielle.

Carate Urio is ideal if your main priority on vacation is to relax. There is no hustle and bustle here, except when the green grocer sets up at 7am. That is also the charm. Located only a few steps from the ferry dock, this hotel is small, but comfortable. The hosts are warm and friendly, particularly the husband, and seemingly... More

The room was small. The mattress worn! The staff were not disinterested. Far too expensive for what you get.

I have been to the restaurant on many occasions as I normally stay in an apartment near by, all I can say is the food is just fabulous! I have even driven from Milan with friends on a friday evening just to have the food, the amazing creme brulee, the wonderful prosecco and to soak in the evening beauty of... More

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

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
