Nice hotel in a central location. Staff very friendly & amenable. Rooms are small & clean. Breakfast had a good selection & decent choice of gluten free foods. The room was beautiful. We picked this hotel as it had a bar which was closed when we were there. So that was a shame. Beware if you are limited mobility as... More

The Palace Hotel is well located on the Lake front in Como (a road separates the Hotel and the Lake). Opposite the Ferry/Water Taxi's wharf for services around Lake Como. Short level stroll to many Restaurants, Bars and Shops. The rooms are on the smaller side with small bathrooms. A few rooms here have balconies, but not many. The fine... More

This hotel is only 4 star but it could easily be a 5 star hotel. It's situated in a fantastic position right in front of the lake , where one can catch the boats doing the various cruises on the lake. It's very near the city centre and very good restaurants. The rooms are spacious , clean and very up... More

We stayed in the Palace Hotel in Como back in June of this year. Superb lakeside location close to Como station. Efficient staff. Well appointed rooms and large breakfast area. Good choice with fresh fruit and hot food. Thoroughly recommend.

Have always wanted to go to Lake Como and wasn't disappointed, the place was spectacular and the hotel was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, and everything in and around the hotel was spotless. The location is great, about 20 steps away from the lake and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and dinner here. Saving up now... More

Stayed at the Palace at the start of a two-week trip to Italy and France. This may be one of the most central locations in Como, with such wonderful views of Lake Como from one side. The rooms are a bit small, but perfectly fine. I would imagine that rooms that DO NOT have a lake view may seem more... More

Really pretty hotel, perfectly located. Not quite sure why it is 4 stars though because I do not think they should rate prettyness. There is paying parking available which you just need to go for as there is just no other option (and they know it). Rooms are small but pretty, amazing bath products though!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Majestic and prestigious, the Palace Hotel faces the lakefront and perfectly combines the Liberty style of its main building "Plinius" with the classic lines of the "Pianella" wing; two styles, yet one soul defining the Palace and its history, making this property unique. The hotel features 94 rooms - the majority of which completely renovated - and common areas where the elegant atmosphere of the art deco blends with the modern facilities of the highest standards. ... more   less
