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

Great view of the lake and valley from our room on the second floor. The staff were very friendly and helpful - they even opened the restaurant to make us dinner on a Monday night when everything in town was closed. Yes, the safe didn't work (as indicated by previous guests) and there isn't WiFi, but there is wired Internet... More

We booked 2 nights here on our way home from Ukraine, and paid in advance for a lake view room. When we arrived there were no lake view rooms available, and the room we did get had no fan, no working refridgerator, and no wireless internet as they previously advertised. Glad we only stayed 2 nights as we really got... More
