The staff was very friendly and always did their best to help you and accommodate your needs with a smile always on their face. It is attached to a nice restaurant. The breakfast is OK, but their dinners are fantastic. They have a deal for Lizard hotel guests, 2 dishes and a glass of wine per person for 15 euro... More

I took a car from Malpensa and it was easy to drive straight to the hotel having there own parking place. The hotel is modern, but the rooms have not so good soundproofing. While I was staying I had no problems, but could feel the phenomena. The breakfast was fairly adequate, so the over all experience was a satisfactory- apart... More

This hotel is an average one. The rooms are quite small and the amenities are barely passable. The owner couple and other family members are quite warm and friendly but don't ask them for any directions -they are lousy at this. The restaurant attached to this hotel is quite good for authentic local cuisine and good wine.

My hubby had intended to book the Hotel Como (a nice place) but instead somehow booked us into a dirty 2 star. The walls of room were filthy - I think it was an handicapped room by the look of the toilet and shower. The hotel shuts of the power to the air con at 2am to save power. We... More

Not that we haven't stayed at cosmopolitan and exceptionally luxurious hotels but this one I will remember mostly because of the owner. He was extremely friendly and warm and he was almost everywhere, anytime! Most of all he was flexible and smart, always with a sweet smile on his face. A small hotel but if you'd ask me, yes I...

The Staff was really friendly and they had a computer installed at the reception, where you were able to use the internet for free. The breakfast was ok: bread, marmelade, honey, cheese, ham, coffee and orange juice. The room was ok, too. It's not the cleanest and the walls are really thin. But compared to the price we paid, it... More

Great hotel. Nice, clean and air conditioned rooms. The night we stayed we were lucky; the restaurant next door catered a specialty menu all based on truffles. We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

I think it should be clear on the website if you are going to charge a fortune for parking. The staff were not particularly welcoming, the breakfast very poor and the area of town unattractive. I'm certainly not going to return to this hotel which is on a route I take often.

Larius is pretty hard to find coming from the Como train station - until you are use to the street signs/allys in Como it's is difficult to navigate. We got lost on the bus systems, luckily an english-speaking student helped us! I would recommend taking a taxi from the train station for 7 euros, it's worth it! After we ventured... More
