Such a great little hotel. Wonderful location with panoramic views of the lake and the mountains that will take your breath away. Perfectly situated. A very short walk (downhill) from the train station and right across the street from the ferry station. A quaint, comfortable hotel that takes you back in time. Laura and staff are fantastic and made us... More

Location is very easy to find, just down the hill from the train station...when you hit the water, it's the yellow building behind you. Our rooms were very nice and nicely furnished, the bathrooms recently updated. The elevator is the slowest thing I've ever heard of, just send it up with the luggage and take the stairs. The young man... More

The perception of this hotel is likely to be quite varied depending on one's expectations. It's location is great if one is planning to spend time touring the lake by ferry as it is situated immediately across the road from the terminal. This makes it a busy place until about 10pm but after that until about 9am it is very... More

We had a late arrival by train after a long day that started in Barcelona with a stop in Milan. By the time we arrived at the Hotel Olivedo, it was 10:00pm and we were shot. The wonderful matriarch of this place had our keys ready and allowed us to go up to our rooms and get settled in before... More

Loved the hotel, loved the location, room was wonderful, views were wonderful, BUT, it was so noisy way into the night that there was no way to rest at night, and we stayed many nights so as much as we liked it we never got any sleep.

Positive: Best of all was the food in the evening. Much better than the local restaurants we sampled. The hotel rooms were very clean and comfortable. Nice view of the lake from the room. Convenient location next to harbour. Negative: The lady at reception was initially very friendly-almost over the top. This seemed to change when we decided to eat... More

Loved the quaint hotel which is a throwback in time. The host was welcoming and we had a room with great views on the 3rd floor. Breakfast was simple European continental style which was fine for us. We also styaed in sister hotel Villa Torreta and it was fabulous aswell though views from Olivedo are more beautiful. The ferry stop... More

The classic european hotel - it has the best location in town. We had a great room (room # 1) which had a great view of the lake. The owner had very good English, and was very helpful and welcoming. She was also there at breakfast and made sure everything ran smoothly. It was fun to watch all the activity... More

Great large room with magnificent views over Lake Como and the mountains. Character hotel with Lake Como Ferry Station across the road, railway station some 300m away and easy walking distance within 5 minutes to most restaurants.

Overall we had a very good experience at the Hotel Olivedo. The location was ideal if you want to be on the water.Easy access to the ferry boats and walk into town. Owner was helpful most of the time.
