My wife and I stayed at Eremo Gaudio for our honeymoon. The hotel is fantastic - not overly luxurious but really comfortable, and with the most amazing views. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the lake was stunning, as were evenings on our balcony. Be warned though, the lifts are scary for anyone who is afraid of heights!

This is an old orphanage turned monastery turned hotel. There are three main points : Beauty: We travelled all around the center of Lake Como, and never had a better view than from our own room. Breathtaking, quiet, awesome. We had to walk out our door and down a little staircase to our cliffside outdoor 'patio', but it did not... More

Rick Steve’s didn’t let us down once again! This recommendation from Rick was a great place to stay! It was quite a hike from the train station, I would suggest a cab next time. The view on the way up is amazing and so are the rooms! The staff was helpful and gave us the scoop on the ferries. I... More

We stayed at the Emero Gaudio May 28-31 2006. We had a double room in the upper building with a lake view and balcony for 120 Euros/night. We really enjoyed our stay. The room itself is a pretty standard european 3 star. But it has such a great view and the peace and quiet of being so high up the... More

yes this place is up, up, up the hill, but that what gives it the best view on Lake Como! Taxi's are at the train station to take you to the hotel, well worth the cash if you have heavy bags. As for day-to-day stuff, the short stroll into town is not bad at all if you don't have a... More
