We stayed here for 6 nights on an art history tour looking at ancient frescos, interesting architecture and gardens so were out all day and every day. The rooms are small but the bathroom was cleverly designed to incorporate a bath with overhead shower. My only gripe with the bathroom (which is often the case) is that there is nowhere... More

This hotel is right on Lake Como, just across the street on the square. It is family owned and feels like it. The staff is excellent and friendly and the complimentary breakfast is to die for. It is located right in the middle of the action, minutes from all the stores and restaurants, and it even has its own, which... More

I liked the Metropole Suisse Hotel in Como....on the north corner of the Como Square, adjacent to the beautiful Lake Como and, if your room is facing east as ours was, a great view of the Brunate Funicolare, etc. The hotel service was great. The room was very nice and I liked the window that would open allowing unobstructed photo... More

This hotel is perfectly located right opposite the ferry terminal at Lake Como. It is an old building but internally it is modern. It has lots of character and we found it to be comfortable and inviting. We had a lake/mountain view which was spectacular. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast more than adequate. Would we stay... More

The location is great but don't trust your GPS as it may take you through the TZL for no reason and they do not warn you about this and are not sure if you will get a ticket or not. The hallways are bumpy and slanted and the rooms and hotel is way more dated than the pictures show. Also... More

Dear Kevincanada, we really regret to read about these misfortunes you experienced driving around Como area. As we are few steps from the city centre, that is a limited traffic zone, we understand that it could be little bit confusing finding the right way, especially when you are following incorrect directions from a GPS. Our Hotel is located in Piazza... More

We began our three week tour of Italy in Como. Much to our delight, we had three nights at the Metropole. This hotel is very well managed, clean, convenient and well appointed. We are in the hospitality business ourselves so we can be a bit picky about hotels. This hotel is a gem! Our room was very clean and quite... More

We stayed here two nights with our tour. Great location, right on the water's edge. The staff were all very friendly, and the food was good. The breakfast buffet was especially good. The view from our room was fabulous, facing the courtyard, lakefront, & adjacent mountainside. There might be better, I'm sure there are worse - I would stay here... More

We stayed here two nights with our tour. Great location. The wait staff were very good as was the food. Breakfast was especially good compared to other hotels on our tour.

This is a old historic building, now a hotel. Everything was clean, and the staff was great. The location is right by the lake and couldn't be better. You can easily walk the entire historic district, and its close to many restaurants and shopping. The breakfast buffet was nice, but not extensive. Note that this hotel has narrow, winding hallways... More
