I understood that the hotel has a new owner. He was kind and caring and served us pretty fine breakfast every morning. Rest of the time the public spaces (etc lobby, restaurant) were closed. A little bit strange was that the cleaning lady went our room despite the sign "do not disturb". She took away all our soda and water... More

My wife and I stayed here for two days in April 2013. We learned that the Owners had recently remodeled/upgraded the hotel. We were not disappointed. The location is perfect within walking distance of the Funicular and a focal point for the hiking trails. The view of Lake Como from our balcony was beautiful. The Owner were extremely kind. We...

This was our second visit in the last 3 years, and despite change of ownership this hotel remains an absolute gem. The views are just superb, you can see pretty much all of Como and the alps. The staff are happy to provide you with anything you need and are very warm and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable... More

The view from this hotel is fabulous and something I didn't think possible with a low budget. You can see the whole city of Como and the lake and mountains. The free breakfast was so good! Fresh warm crossiants and the best cheese. The restaurant seems to be family run, the cook being like the "typical Italian mother." That being... More

This low price hotel offerd me a small but fine singel room (€60) it was clean and i slept well. The breakfast was the only negative. Brunate is the place for hiking and in the small village there little to do.

I have read the other reviews and feel that they don't represent the property. There is free parking in front of the church in what looks like a little park. We parked there all day and night, no problem. The room was clean and comfortable. The sheets and comforter on the bed were luxurious. They seemed brand new. Yes this... More

Last week all hotels in idyllic Cernobbio across from Como was overbooked.I found Vista Lago on Hotels.com sitting in a restaurant (It said 1,8 miles from Cernobbio and free breakfast) I paid the night on my smart phone, but as I punched the address into my car GPS it said 29 minutes and 11Kilometers). After an quite extreme mountain climb,... More

Our reservation said there would be free parking. There was no parking at all near the hotel. Free breakast. Nothing not even a cup of coffee offered. Staff working at hotel was much more interested in their smart phones and sleeping in than helping us out. Hotel is located in Brunate about 2000 ft. above Como. It's a very narrow... More

We booked through laterooms.com and traveled to Italy for 1 night in Milan followed by 1 night in Como. Upon arriving in Milan, we received an email from laterooms saying that Vista Lago had overbooked and we had to call during business hours (Monday - Friday) for help. Instead of traveling up to Como for a relaxing weekend, we spent... More
