Our travel agent recommended this hotel when our first choice (recommended by a business colleague) had no availability. We were pleased to discover its prime location on a piazza with a lake view, when we arrived after an overnight flight from the U.S. Elena greeted us with an enthusiastic "Buon giorno!" and, after checking us in, informed us that, due...

We found this hotel online, and were very happy with our choice! The hotel is in a great location...close to restaurants, bars, stores and a beautiful church, and the best part it is very close to the beautiful Lake Como. There is a small bar in the lobby with a very nice bartender who provided extra treats even though we... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a Trafalgar tour group. The rooms were clean and roomy with larger-than-average bathrooms, which was appreciated after what we had in Venice. It is also a very modern hotel with nice amenities (I still have their complimentary slippers). The location of the hotel couldn't be more convenient to doing things in Como... More

The position opposite the Lake Ferry Terminal is first class.The Piazza, the Bus stop zone, the close proximity to all that the lake has to offer, and, all outside the front door is just perfect. The Funiculare Railway is within 400 metres walk as is the Nord Railway Station and the Bus Terminal. There is also a multitude of shops,... More

The view from our room was breath-taking, morning and evening. Not only could we see the lake but the ice rink below and the Christmas market. We were close to pleasant places to eat, the markets (Christmas and local), pleasant walking areas and the terminal for catching the ferry. The room was extremely comfortable in size and appointments with large... More

This hotel was a 15 minute walk from the train to the hotel, but there is public transport if you need it. It is also very close to the marina to take the boats out to around Lake Como. Nice clean hotel with bar and breakfast. Also quite close to a few nice restaurants in the heart of Como.

We were fortunate to be able to take advantage of the hotel's "Spring Package". From our comfortable room, we had a lovely lake view. The package also included dinner at the hotel, a delicious dinner which was one of our best in Italy. The breakfast buffet included a wide array of hot and cold offerings. I would be delighted to...
