Great value hotel for Lake Como. This was a celebration trip for my birthday and so we requested a nice room with a view. The hotel did not dissappoint with a 3rd floor room with double aspect patio doors each with a balcolny overlooking a fantastic view of the lake at the front and the hillside and village to the side (where we sat with a glass of wine each evening, glasses provided by hotel - there is a small supermarket in the village a short walk away). However, please be aware the hotel is on a very busy road so it is loud, but that's maybe the sacrifice for having such a lovely view, but once patio doors are shut the noise cannot be heard. The hotel has underground parking at E5 a night which has to be booked in advance. The room and ensuite were both large and were spotlessly clean and looked as though it had been recently reburbished/decorated. The room had a large double bed with comfortable linen, but we thought the mattress was a little lumpy, a large wardrobe, a dressing table area including a fridge, tv and air conditioning. The staff were all really pleasant and efficient. Breakfast was good with unlimited continental style food. We thought the pool was a disappointing as it was a good size, but the area around it very limited and crowded with only two umbrellas for shade which made it very difficult as it was so hot. Towels were provided for the poolside. We had a late flight back so to make use of the whole day we freshened up using the outside shower by the pool and changed in the toilets adjacent to reception. It would have been better to have a small room with a basic shower and changing facilities instead which we've used at several other hotels/accommodation we've stayed at previously. Be aware the hotel is on a busy road which makes walking to the adjacent villages Tremezzo and Lenno difficult as there is intermitent pavement. We had a meal in the local restaurant by the lake called 'Magnolia' which was good. However, we walked the other two nights to Lenno and would recommend the Sports Bar right on the lakeside which has a basic menu (pizza/pasta) with wine and bread etc at E25 to E35 for two - cheap as chips but very good! We also used the ferry/boat trip from Lenno (day ticket at E15 each to travel to the main tourist villages in the centre of the lake which is well worth doing) as we felt it was a little quicker and safer to go from there as opposed from Tremezzo. We warned many of the restaurants/establishments do not use credit/debit cards and will only accept cash (and that includes buying your ticket for the ferry!)
