We were there three nights and while the staff seemed helpful at times, there were consistent problems with virtually everything. The free internet in the lobby never worked; there was not even a signal in the bar where it was supposed to work. The paid internet went out several times and did not connect with one computer at all. Other... More

This Hotel is beautiful, well located etc...(as one expects for the price) However...apart from the reception which was impecable, one person made it very special.. the Maitre d'Hotel MICHELANGELO FRIGERO was of an exceptional presence,service and professionalism that is becoming a rare and precious commodity today.

We were looking forward to staying at the Palace Hotel since we had checked it out three years ago when we were in Lake Como for a four day period. This time we were there for six full days. This hotel really was a palace that the then King of Italy built along with his own railroad station right next... More

We stayed at the palace for 2 nights and had 2 rooms. The place had a good appearance. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The breakfast had a nice appearance but the eggs and meat were not good. The internet was very poor,worse than dial up, and much slower than the free Como internet. The location is excellent What people... More

Very well situated centrally with good, if not close views of the lake, this is a grand establishment. The rooms are very comfortable, well equipped and quiet. Food in the restaurant is OK but fairly standard, although there is fair list of very reasonably priced wines. Breakfast is very good; lots of variety and fresh foods. The complaints would be...

If you look at the hotel's website and reviews on TA, you might think this hotel has been completely renovated. It has not. We got a room with lake glimpses with furniture and fittings that would not be out of place in a 1960s motel - it was very underwhelming. I did ask the front desk, as my booking indicated... More

Nice hotel with beautiful views of the lake. However, only a few rooms have balconies so next time I would pay extra for this option. The room seemed newly decorated and very comfortable. Great location in Como, walking distance to the Duomo and all the attractions and restaurants.

I can't quite report anything remarkable about this stay. Granted we were only there one night on our way to Florence so we only spent less than 24 hours here. Service met my expectations, breakfast was good and location was very good. There is no hotel fitness center but you have opportunities right outside for a jog and lots of... More

This is a great location to explore the lake and the town of Como, the town is bigger than I was expecting in the past they had a thriving silk business now mostly gone thanks to Chinese competition. The hotel had a first class renovation in the last six months with everything you could ask for in a modern hotel... More

The renewed and repositioned, Plinius wing guestrooms, suites and corridors transformation is now complete and the results are luxurious and gratifying. It's evident that every finish, fixture and furnishing has been selected with quality and finesse. Underpinning the entire establishment is the courteous, earnest hospitality delivered by GM Robert Webber and his colleagues in every department. Polished service in the... More
