This is my second stay at The Palace in Como. I visit for work and this hotel is lovely, with a great location, lakefront view, and updated rooms.
Pros: location is perfect and easy walking, great breakfast, updated bathrooms with outlets! (Something not common in Europe in bathrooms). And as I said, great view.
Cons: no water bottles in the room(except in minibar), wifi is not free and not cheap and requires a visit to the front desk to buy a wifi pass and it sometimes dropped, room service is great for breakfast but no other. Oh, and the bed is really hard but this seems to be the norm in many hotels.
This is one of the nicer hotels I've stayed, I will come again. My colleagues who also travel to Como for work prefer this hotel, or the Terminus next door, and have tried many in Como.
Como is beautiful and you won't be in your room much no matter what.
