We visited Como again this summer and despite having looked at other hotel options around Como, we thought the Palace was the best bet. We would definitely recommend staying in a lake view room (or higher category) as you get the renovated block which is better. Views across the lake are lovely and the window (full length) opens right out... More

We booked a room with a view and it didn't disappoint. The room itself was nothing special. A good choice at breakfast, with quick and efficient staff. We had an evening drink in the outside bar and lucky to see a small firework display. A very odd ironing board service, you had to walk through the main reception and iron... More

The staff was not too friendly, and car entrance from the main street was a challenge as well as parking inside. There were too many stairs to climb. Stairs to lobby, stairs to elevator level and even stairs in between the rooms !!! Breakfast room was amazing and breakfast was ok. My room view was a WALL !

The bathroom was spacious. The room was nice, but felt a little damp. May have felt a little damp because the air was not on continously (as they are not in Italy without a key), but overall a nice stay. We were there only one night, it was restful.

This hotel was in the perfect location. Literally 5 mins walk from train station which links to the airport. It's located at the bottom end of the lake perfect for catching the ferry across the lake and Clare to main squares/shops/restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay, had a lovely room and amazing breakfast buffet. Staff were extremely friendly. Would happily... More

A Hotel in the perfect of locations, close to the old city and the shopping and restaurant area and access to the lake and the ferries. We rode our cycles from here each day around the lake either way and to Bellagio so great access. The staff kindly stored the bikes for us and we're very helpful in suggestions of... More

I stayed in this hotel with a tour group. We had to wait ages for the rooms to be completed and then the room was disapppointing and looked out on a dingy courtyard. The hotel lives up to its name in its outside appearnace and grand entrance. It is well located on the lakeside and near the Old Town .

The overall rating is a little bit of a tough choice. We were there with a group for 6 nights. The hotel is located on Lake Como, across the road along the Lake. It is well situated for a stroll along the water, seeing the boats, or to the Cathedral (interesting inside) and it's square with a selection of nice... More
