This is a great property if you want to avoid high priced hotels in Bellagio' and have a good home base at a great rate. Probably the ugliest property on the lake - this place has some of the BEST views. Simply amazing! Family run, don't expect 5-star service or 5-star decor. The rooms are basic (yet clean) and a...

Our stay at the Lake Como was beautiful and unforgettable. We were very lucky to find availability at Hotel Glavcj and am very sure you cannot find such an amazing view for a very reasonable price. The balcony was overlooking the lake and although the furniture may be a bit dated you won't be bothered if you look outside your... More

The Glavjc has wonderful views and is incredibly peaceful. This family run hotel is charming and the staff are genuine and really helpful. The restaurant is excellent with huge portions and a good wine list too. We had some of the best food of the trip here. Breakfast is similarly generous and includes lots of fresh fruits and cakes and... More

The balcony rooms are a bit more in price, but the views are STUNNING ! We bought a 1/2 bottle of wine (10 euro) from the hotel and sat on our balcony in the evening to enjoy the view over Lake Como. The rooms are a bit dated but clean and functional. Take the boat from Torno around the lake.... More

Finding this hotel was one of our greatest achievements. Como simply doesn't have hotels for this price with such a location, views and cuisine. Its a little out of town, the exterior of the building is daunting but don't be off put...here the rooms have probably the best view on to the lakes you could ever hope for. The hotel... More

This hotel is about 10 minutes drive from Como town, on a narrow but very beautiful road towards Bellagio. Free outdoor parking on site. The hotel itself looks a bit 70ies, but the rooms are clean and ok. The clues with this hotel are two: First the view from the balcony - must be one of the best on the... More

Great view, very inexpensive. Very Good restaurant on site. Small rooms, but who cares! All balconies overlooking lake. Parking included. People very helpful. Not noisy. Good place to get just outside of COMO, or towards Bellagio

Before going to this hotel, I read the reviews and was a little concerned about the reception. I need not have worried. The lady at the reception desk was very pleasant, and altough her english is not good, as is my Italian, we got on well. There was no problem with credit cards. Also, the shower trays criticised by some... More

We didn't stay here, just ate one night. The windows were all open to the lake and the warm summer air was gorgeous as we ate our food, which was very nice. The staff and waiter could have been a bit friendlier but I'd definitely go back, it was lovely to sit and eat while the sun went down over... More

This hotel was for us a stop between home and destination, but it’s a very good stop at a very lovely location and with a beautiful view on Lake Como. Our room was normal and good, with a clean bathroom. Best thing about the room we had was the terrace with a perfect view on the lake. Dinner and breakfast... More
