The location is perfect ! the Como lake is beautiful, the Como town beautiful, some small improvements can place this hotel at much higher rating. In 2014 free internet is a must. What is more annoying is that the town provides free internet but this hotel blocks and requires payment. The food is average not more, rooms are clean and... More

We found a comfortable sized room that was clean, quite and comfortable. They have a good free breakfast and the staff is helpful. Good location near everything. Across the street from the on and off boat, very near Cathedral, old town, shopping and many restaurants

We stayed recently with a group of friends. The hotel is in a great location, across from the lake and not far from the train station. We all upgraded our rooms to lake view balcony, what a treat! We were on the 5 th floor and it was awesome! The view of the lake is terrific. The rooms are very... More

Beautifully positioned. Whilst our room was small and not a lake view room as such we were able to view the lake through one of the windows. Front desk reasonable but after coming from The Giorgione in Venice where the benchmark was set I can only give this 3.5 out if 5. Mostly because one guy was not overly friendly... More

We have now stayed twice at this hotel. Each time we are greeted immediately and quickly processed and moved to our room. The best rooms to get are always lakeview. All the comforts of home and if eating out is too much trouble, you can always dine in at the in house restaurant. It's close to ferry services and all... More

The room was on the fifth non smoking floor. A little treat to ourselves for two nights.the reception was wonderful. We felt really welcome. The breakfast is adequate... More
