Hotel is located off a narrow road; so road noise is not a problem but noisy neighbors (other hotel guests) could be a problem if you happen to be unfortunately enough to be staying in a room next to a bunch of noisy inconsiderate! We requested a family room at the time of booking; paid extra for it of course... More

We stayed at this hotel in May 2013 for a week down to Lake Como from Zurich. Booked a standard double room for 2 nights, and found it large, clean, basic and magnificent views of the lake. The staff were very friendly with Antonio at check-in extremely helpful. The hotel has parking so easy if you drive. The room had... More

Stopped here for a couple of nights with a group of 12 adults. We were given a very warm welcome with snacks and wine in the bar. Our room was on the top floor with a balcony giving views down to the lake. It's a good 15 minute walk down to the Lake side and tough going on the way... More

We booked 2 nights in a Junior Suite before finding the less than complimentary Tripadvisor reviews. On reading them, we tried to cancel our booking, but we would have lost our deposit, so we went ahead filled with fear and trepidation! Our suite was incredibly spacious and clean. Basic, yes, but we didn't exactly pay top dollar for it. Breakfast... More

Rooms more cheaply furnished than the impression given by the pictures, however balcony very useful and view splendid. Rooms were cleaned daily very well. Minimum depth of swimming pool at 80cm prevented our 3 year old from using it. Breakfast was ok but spartan and could run empty if you arrived too late. Restaurant quality was below standard for this... More

We booked Sonenga because it looked good nonlinear. What a mistake! When we arrived, we drove up for a look and instantly regretted our decision. There is no way this hotel is 3 star, although it charges like it is. We called to see if we could cancel. He said yes that was fine. The next night during dinner he... More

Stayed at this hotel and still unsure of why I chose it. It is up a hill - don't be walking with any luggage. A taxi should charge (8 Euros - for 5 minutes!) but they charged us 9 because his car was new. Yussef from the hotel will do it for 5 in his pocket. The reception was closed... More

I'm writing this review solely as a warning to those who, like I did, may have booked this hotel online because it seemed to be the most accessible during the Lake Como off-season. Please do not do this! I booked two nights (during my honeymoon) at the hotel Sonenga though their on-line reservations engine, which I found out too late... More

This hotel dosen’t meet the minimum standards for a three star hotel. For instance, the door that acces to the reception is always closed. The same happens with the door that gives you acces to the fitness and the sauna. We did ask for the timetable and each day we had a different answer, but the fact was that the... More

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel Sonenga with our two teenage daughters. The hotel is definitely a trek from the downtown area, but for us, that just added to the adventure. The best part of travel is experiencing life like the locals. Hotel Sonenga is located in a residential neighborhood at the top of a steep ramp and step... More
