I have to totally honest with you, On reading the previous reviews of this hotel my heart was filled with dread and a certain amount of fear but i shouldn't and nor should you take any notice of some of the previous reviews.
On arriving at the hotel (we travelled from Como to Bellagio by bus) i was instantly hit with the beautiful location the hotel was situated, looking straight out over Lake Como.
The lobby to the hotel is special and is filled with sofa's and chairs which are in keeping with the style of the hotel.
We were allocated a Lake view room on the 1st floor which was massive and had a large double bed and 2 single beds, the bathroom was a good size as well.
The breakfast we received was ample and plentiful, on each table there is a basket with bread or rolls, there is also a an area in the corner of the dining room which has a good selection of cold meats, cheese, cereals, cakes / croissants, Yoghurts and finally fruit.
There is also a juice dispenser and a hot drinks dispenser which i have to agree the coffee is terrible but the hot chocolate was very nice as was the tea.
I found the staff very helpful even when i managed to lock the safe in the room and forgot what number i had entered, nothing was too much trouble for them.
We came early season and it was very quiet which was a benefit as we had the place pretty much to ourselves.
In front of the hotel is the ferry terminal which has ferries going all over Lake Como, we bought a day ticket at travelled all over the centre of the lake which was brilliant.
All in all we all had a wonderful time and i would recommend this hotel and i will definitely return in the future
