I loved this place, but it is not for those who are afraid of heights. Rooms are old fashioned, but delightfully so. Reminds one of European hotels of 50 years ago or more. Balcony overlooks the lake far below giving a view of little villages in the mist by day and sparling lights by night. Restaurant has good food if... More

Parking aside, this hotel is superbly located, spotlessly clean and quiet. From our very wet arrival, when the receptionist shifted his own car to allow us close access to shift our luggage and then carried as much as he could through the rain, to the stunning menu - try the antipasta service - this hotel is an absolute winner. Our... More

The room did not have one working reading lamp and the hair dryer did not work. What was however worst was the slanting bottom of the shower wich is very dangerous. You have to be alert to this but the shower is otherwise in good order. Be careful when going down to the parking because of steps that take you... More

Travelled as a couple. Here are our review! Him: Hidden Pearl of Como This has got to be the best value hotel in all of Como. Yes - the Hotel is a bit old, but I hope they newer upgrade (and triple the prices)! First: The View! Large private balconies with panoramic views of the lake. Absolutely 5 star. Recommended...

Our review of the Hotel Glavjc will be the same as many of the others on TA. Yes the décor and furnishing were really dated – it was like being in a retro time warp, but the room was spotlessly clean and in exceptionally good condition. The condition of the room would put many other hotels to shame. And the... More

This is a great property if you want to avoid high priced hotels in Bellagio' and have a good home base at a great rate. Probably the ugliest property on the lake - this place has some of the BEST views. Simply amazing! Family run, don't expect 5-star service or 5-star decor. The rooms are basic (yet clean) and a...

Our stay at the Lake Como was beautiful and unforgettable. We were very lucky to find availability at Hotel Glavcj and am very sure you cannot find such an amazing view for a very reasonable price. The balcony was overlooking the lake and although the furniture may be a bit dated you won't be bothered if you look outside your... More

The Glavjc has wonderful views and is incredibly peaceful. This family run hotel is charming and the staff are genuine and really helpful. The restaurant is excellent with huge portions and a good wine list too. We had some of the best food of the trip here. Breakfast is similarly generous and includes lots of fresh fruits and cakes and... More
