We have been there for four nights in June 2015, The location is perfect, the town is small, but you are 5 minutes walk from the Duomo, and in front of the lake. The building is old and very well maintained, some of the common areas are fantastic, especially Breakfast room and Bar (see pictures). Our room was OK, a... More

The best is the building, a big mansión right in front of the Lake. Rooms are clean and airy, not decorated in the antique style like others, but quite simple. They are quite modern. The worst is that you have to pay wifi, which I think is unacepptable in the XXIst century.

We were upgraded to this hotel from a sister hotel. What a treat! We had a beautiful lake view room that had been recently remodeled. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and the location can't be beat.

New lakeview rooms are OK, older rooms are too expensive for the quality, you can find the same for less. The room was clean but really small and tasteless. Location is perfect, but anyways the town is small so you could stay anywhere.

The Palace doesn't have much in the way of facilities ie pool, spa, gym etc. that big hotels have but the rooms are modern, clean, light and airy and the building has style and gravitas. Get outside and enjoy Como would be my advice. Staff are really friendly and helpful. We had rented bicycles to ride the Ghisallo climb and... More

The hotel is five meters away from the lake and very close to the centre of the town, making the location fantastic and I believe one of the best in Como, and despite the buildings being quite old (=> very beautiful from the inside and outside), the rooms are very well maintained. The New Year dinner was fantastic, a lot... More

Reading reviews always make me smile, how can someone give this hotel one star ridiculous! Its a great hotel the location is so good just off the square giving you a peaceful night, (although the rooms have sound proofed windows) but two minutes to the busy square and the ferry port and 5 minutes to the funicular. We are a... More

These reviews are absolutely missguiding about this place. Hospital atmosphere, cold and the interior couldnt be worst than it is. I would never come again to this place and wonder how it can receive such good reviews.

This hotel has it all....great location, great food, and the best room we stayed at on our Italy trip. Our room had a terrace and a perfect view of the lake. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the hostess was the sweetest person...we loved her. Paying for Wifi was a small issue in that you needed to rejoin each day.... More
