I stayed here for 4 nights recently on my annual business trip to Cernobbio. The place is old-fashioned, nicely decorated. My room was quite small but cozy and comfortable. The lady assisting at breakfast every morning was very nice and helpful, always smiling, and that is exactly what you need to start the day in a good mood. Would definitely... More

This hotel was very clean, very quiet, and had the essential amenities such as free wifi and breakfast. What was incredibly odd to me was that the bathroom had no shower curtain so it was hard not to soak the entire floor.

Pleasant but rather dated hotel with private parking. Basic room which was clean and adequate. Hotel is in a good position being only minutes from the lake. The staff were very friendly and we were pleasantly suprised by the range of food served at breakfast.

The hotel is situated close to the lake. So ideally for discovering the neighborhood. We stayed in de deluxe rooms. These were ok for a 3 star hotel. The main building of the hotel, hosting the reception, bar and restaurant is really dated and in urgent need of an upgrade. Breakfast was good. The room rate is too high (approx... More

Positives are the charm, location, easy walking distance to almost everything in Cernobbio and to the ferries to various locations on Lake Como. Our room was clean enough and staff were pleasant. At a closer look the hotel does give off a bit of a "budget" feel in little ways (e.g., no mattress covers, just a sheet over a mattress... More

I landed in Milan and the drive to Cernobbio was quite far!!!! The hotel had a restaurant next to it...nice food but a bit expensive. The staff weren't the most friendliest. The room was just ok. I personally wouldn't stay here again. The hotel is very close to Lake Como!!!! BEAUTIFULLLLLLLL Lake!
