Hotel was FANTASTIC. Had a nice large hotel room (by European standards) and a HUGE terrace with a lake-front view of Lake Como. Absolutely spectacular, breath-taking views. This hotel is the closest hotel I saw on the lake (others are across the street or up on a hill). Hotel is located right in the center of town and within a half block of two ferry stops. Room was decorated with antique furniture and high ceilings with wainscoting and backlit crown molding. Very accommodating and friendly front desk staff. Very good breakfast with a wide selection of items. One night the restaurant next door had outdoor entertainment that we were able to enjoy from our terrace while having our wine and cheese. We ate at L’Antico Pozzo and Terrazza Barchetta. Both are very nice family run restaurants with very good pasta, pizza and meat dishes and friendly staff, located on side streets a few blocks from the hotel. I would recommend the latter for a more romantic dinner (see separate reviews of each).
