This hotel has probably seen better days as it is in a prime spot facing Lake Como but has the feel of something of out the 1960s. The positives? The staff is all very professional and polite and are always quick to greet you and assist you. With one exception, when my family and I checked in at 12:30am, there... More

We just spent a few nights at the Palace Hotel. We loved the view of the lake and loved the location. Parking was onsite and was very easy. We didn't like that they charge for Wi-Fi. This was the only hotel on our holiday that charged for WiFi. The breakfast each morning was very busy no matter what time we... More

Just returned from a week at the Palace Hotel, have never known such a friendly, helpful, staff, from the very approachable Manager, Mr Robert Webber, reception (who greeted you everytime you walked into the Hotel), the dining room staff, were all excellent. Once in our lake view room, with wonderful aircon, we never heard a sound, from other guests, traffic,... More

I stayed at the palace while traveling around Italy with a friend. We had a lakeview room and I must say when we drew back the curtains the view was stunning. The front desk staff was more than welcoming and tended to our needs and questions. It is walking distance to the ferry that takes you to different locations around... More

The Palace hotel is ideally located near the Lake and the city center in Como. Our room was recently renovated and had a lake view, although I understand that not all the rooms have been updated. Make sure you request a recently renovated room. The bathrooms are updated as well. The buffet breakfast was OK. The service met expectations. The... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your review. Pleased to know that your stay was pleasant and that you enjoyed our brand new rooms. Just a note to fellow readers: the non-renovated is area is far from being "old" and the rooms are much larger and bathrooms have natural light. So when booking, please do specify if requesting a renovated room.... More

We spent a night in this nice hotel, fully refurbished. Everything was perfect except that you have to pay 15€ for the parking and some more additional euros to get wifi access. That's a shame since everything else was perfect. The hotel is perfectly located in Como, right in the centre.

We had a great stay at the Palace Hotel. The front desk staff was extremely helpful, the buffet breakfast was outstanding, and the location was great. We had a lake view room (more like facing the lake, view of the trees out front), but the room itself was very nice and you could tell the floor had just been updated.... More

We spent 5 nights there in August and enjoyed the rooms, location and free breakfast. The rooms were always clean and comfortable. The location is right by the water and the ferry dock. The breakfast was a great buffet. The front desk staff was not very helpful with suggestions for restaurants or attractions. It did not appear that they were... More

We ended our Italian trip in this lakeside hotel. And it was perfect, especially after the hustle and bustle of Venice. So we could unwind and walk out. Perfect location for accessing the wonderful shops around the corner, the Duomo (sit in the cafes opposite, drink Spritz, have spaghetti pomodoro and people watch), the Lago di Como, and the travelator...

Dear 101 Charma, thank you very much for your nice review. Very pleased you had a great stay with us. I just need to correct one detail regading wi-fi: the 24-hour connection costs € 12,90 and not € 20 for just two hours as you mentioned. Best regards, Robert Webber General manager More

At this day and age is almost disrespectful for a hotel to charge extra to have wifi in the room, but this hotel does. The wifi in the lobby was not up to par. Breakfast was good. Room was big as was bathroom but not worth the stars or the money. Find something else.
