We have now been 16 times to the Italian Lakes. Our favourite is still Lake Garda. We had booked 3 nights at this hotel before moving to Malcesine in lake Garda. We found the staff to be helpful and pleasant.. especially the dining room staff. The hotel is certainly grand and our room was big and well appointed. The hotel itself is situated well over a mile from the main part of Como but the walk into town was quite nice. ( We had a car but still did a fair bit of walking).
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel.. the food was good if not brilliant and the hotel grounds were lovely.
On the down side, we found the hotel a bit impersonal. Many of the guests were business types with formal dress and laptops. Also on one occasion we tried to get a lunch time snack at the pool bar but were told they only did meals and we could try the hotel itself which was clearly not the same thing. The restaurant itself was lovely but had no windows and so there was a feeling of being shut in.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at the Grand hotel di Como but will not be rushing back.
