The Metropole Suisse is a lovely hotel. Our room looked out on a small garden area of beautiful flowering shrubs and an array of other plants. Everything was well maintained and the staff was friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel makes it easy to walk through the shopping area of Como and enjoy all the sights and sounds... More

Great location on Lake Como & friendly staff are the best 2 attributes of this hotel. Definitely older & small but my room, while very small was clean & comfortable & furnished with basic amenities. Breakfast was decent but did not dine in during the evening as there were so many other options available that were within walking distance. Aside... More

My family and I stayed in Metropole Suisse Hotel for a couple of nights. The hotel is situated on a square overlooking Lake Como. We had a 2 bedroom suite at the front of the hotel with great views. The hotel has some lovely historic features and has been updated with the latest technology (lighting, electric blinds, internet etc). There... More

This hotel is the best location in Como. It is right on the water, by the ferry station and all the activities. Our room had a fantastic view of the harbour and the piazza. Although in a busy location the windows are great and there was no noise at night. The hotel staff was warm and welcoming. The criticism I... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as part of a travel group. It was a nice size room with a great sized bathroom. I did make somewhat of a mess in the shower, but that seems to be the norm in the 5 different hotels that I stayed at on my Italian tour. Bed was comfy and the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and on arrival were told that we were being given an upgrade and instead of 1 room for 3 adults we were having 2 , a single and a double. Upgrade, well that's not what I would have called it!!!. They were awful, dark, drab, dated. We immediately went back to reception in said... More

My family and I recently stayed 3 nights in this hotel. First of all the location is fantastic! Right opposite the boat dock where you can get a boat to the various villages around the lake, or walk to the many restaurants, lido or funicular up the mountain. The staff were always friendly and very helpful - especially when our... More

If your preference is for bland corporate chains without any sense of locality, go elsewhere. This is a classic hotel with excellent service and a lot of character. The location is central....directly opposite the ferry terminal and a short walk from the Lago Nord station. Buses to/from the S Giovanni rail station stop directly opposite. Some rooms have small balconies... More

It's just beside the lake and if you're luck you will get a room with a window view. In general is a traditional hotel with corresponding facilities, so if you choose it you have to respect it! My room was quite tiny. People are gentle and breakfast is decent. The most important is it's position, which is close to almost... More

This is a classic hotel for those that favour traditional style and values. Built over 100 years ago with large rooms and decorated in sympathetic style to the period, marble staircases etc. Over the years modern facilities have been sympathetically added, air conditioning, central heating and lifts. The bedrooms are large and decorated with traditional furnishings and surprisingly user friendly.... More
