Now I don't want to set your expectations, as this hotel is far from the most amazing hotel I have stayed in but........ Myself and my girlfriend stayed here back in September on Monza GP weekend. We travelled straight up to Como on the Train from Monza itself, easy, pleasant and cheap.... Arriving in Brunate after having a hectic few... More

We arrived at Vista Lago by car which is a treat in itself as the drive up the hill to Brunate from Como is an amazing experience. The views from anywhere and anywhere are amazing. The hotel is just what we wanted, friendly, small, quaint, and relaxed. The rooms, restaurant, bar, and facilities were excellent. An amazing experience. The proprietor... More

We had reservations to stay here but then didn't get to because of the fenicular schedule and an early flight. BUT, we took the fenicular up to Brunate and had the owner tour us through the hotel. It's nothing too fancy, but very well kept and clean. Small rooms, but AMAZING view from the front of the hotel, all the... More

A good 3 star Italian hotel. Personally we didn't find the drive too bad, a few hair pin bends but nothing untoward. The rooms are on the small side but very comfortable and with fabulous views and the owner could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Brunate is a lovely little hilltop town, the cable car to Como is... More

As other reviewers have commented, this hotel's primary asset is its view - perhaps one of the most beautiful in the world. Ask for a top floor room to see it at its best - the twin bed option has an enormous terrace with room for sunbathing and simply enjoying the visage. The hotel itself is somewhat dated. My room...

Amazing view from this hotel with very friendly and helpful staff to ensure you feel right at home. The rooms are modern and clean but could do with some sound proofing between the rooms. Location wise it is worth checking the Como to Brunate Funicular is working as travelling via bus up the mountain can be a little tiresome and... More

It's quite obvious that the main reason to want to stay in this hotel is the spectacular view over the mountains that the hotel's high altitude offers. This is why we chose it, and we weren't disappointed. Also, the rooms were modernly equipped, and very clean. Breakfast was alright, and the staff reasonably helpful/friendly. Sleep quality was not great, although... More

Vista Lago is located on the top of Lake Como, giving your a perfect view of the City of Como and the Lake Como region. We arrived in Como from Verona via Trenitalia, the high speed rial like that travels from Milan to Zurich. We took the City bus to town then took the FUNICOLARE (an elevator bus) up the... More
