My husband and I spent a night here last month while visiting a friend in Milan. After an easy drive from the city, we were impressed with the beauty and location of this fine hotel. It surpassed other four star hotels we had stayed in in nearly every aspect. We had a standard room with a balcony and gorgeous view over the lake. The bathroom was spotless and beautiful with upscale fixtures and had some thoughtful touches, including a built-in converter.
The public areas of the hotel were in excellent condition; obviously the spaces had been recently restored and the furnishings were new. These spaces were also nice to look at; beautiful original mosaic tile work on the floors, high ceilings, elegant plaster and stonework, lovely art and light fixtures throughout, etc.
The included breakfast was superior to all the 4-star hotel breakfasts we had during our two weeks in Italy. Coffee was served at the table rather than part of the buffet.
The 25 euro fee to park seemed high but not ridiculous - we expected to pay a premium (parking at most hotels in Chicago runs $40++ so I guess it didn't throw us too much).
The front desk staff was efficient but not particularly helpful or friendly - "cool" would be how I'd describe it - that would be my main complaint.
Otherwise, for the price, this hotel was a GREAT value and we would recommend it highly.

Room Tip: Our standard lakeside room with balcony was perfect - very quiet although the hotel is on a busy tho...

We had a lovely time at this Hotel, strongly recommended, great and easy location to reach. It has fantastic views overlooking the lake from majority of rooms, friendly & very helpful staff. Restaurant is excellent on quality of food and service but could do with changing their menu every few days, we were there 5 days and it was the same every night(although there was a good selection). Only real grumble is the 25 euro a day parking fee in their own on the premises car park, bit naughty for hotel residents!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view as there are a very few without and if you get one with it is special.

Beautifully restored historic hotel with AMAZING views. Loved it.
Wonderful service, so friendly and helpfull staff. Delicious breakfast can be enjoyed on the terrace right on the lake, we had the most beautiful Italian weather and it was the perfect morning! Got everything we wanted, even honey with my tea.
We think that Villa Flori is the best value for the money at lake Como..
Doubleroom with small balcony to the lake, 160 euros per night. Standard room was not large, but pretty. Bathroom luxurious, all brand new and spotless with quality fittings.
Big bonus is also the ferry stop in walking distance, lake cruise is not to be missed!
Truly enjoyed our stay at Villa Flori, our dog, Louix the bullterrier too ( could not get him off that fabulous balcony, they truly hang over the lake! ) Thanks Villa Flori, 3 customers 100 % happy.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are not large. Corner rooms are fabulous.

First, we stayed in Oct '11. This is a great location. The rooms are literally OVER the lake. However, our room was where the hotel 'curves' so was tiny. Make sure you get a Lakeside room that is large. The balcony overlooking the lake is great. We had exclusive use of the spa which is on the rooftop. The restaurant is pricey, but it is on the lake. Any restaurant overlooking the lake is! The staff were extremely attentive and gave a great personal service. It really felt like they were looking after us. The reception staff were very helpful, even providing a travel adaptor, which we forgot to pack. Yes the parking and wifi are very expensive, and maybe the hotel could consider how better this might be funded - it seems most visitors are put off by this. The hotel is close to Como, the ferry and local amenities. I would stay again.

If you are going to visit Lake Como then is has to be here. Truely breathtaking views and next to the ferry. Eat in house. The restaurant is superb. The staff in all the hotel are superb and completely genuine.

Room Tip: Top floor. Worth it.

I was there with my wife for our 10years wedding anniversary.. Lets start with the positives; the historic hotel building is beautiful and the location right by Lake Como is great, it not far away from neither Como or Cernobbio, and just a 5min stroll to the nearest ferry port. ( the ferry is a nice sightseeing exerience by the way, recommended!) We had a room with a stunning lake view and it was really nice to sit and relax on the balcony and glace at the lake. But then the not-so-positive things; we were welcomed by the parking fee of €25per night...Another provocation was the horrendous Wifi charge of €8per/hour. In my view, a Eurpoean hotel which considers itself luxurious and modern should provide free Wifi for its guests, and this is what I am used to when I am out travelling. We are in 2012 after all. Anyway, we decided to skip the Wifi, but we had now already got the feeling we had come to a hotel which really wanted to rip us off... The room was nice and clean, but it was by no means as spacious or luxurious as the room type (de lux double) or the pictures / description on the hotel's web indicated... We felt that service and attitude from staff was generally good, except for the reception perhaps. (But I realise it cannot be easy to the messenger of the such bad news such as the parking and Wifi charges... ) I really hope the hotel amangement will consider how these things affect customer satifaction and make the necessary changes, in order to unleach this hotel's true potential.

Room Tip: Must have lake view

Cheap hotel - they nickel and dime you. No soap/toiletries refill/ no robes, slippers
Etc. Spa barely exists - you need to ask where it is - and- ask them to unock it and/or give them 20 minutes to tuen on sauna. Thwy charge too much for wifi that doesn't work. parking fee is an insult. RUDE staff beyond belief. Find another hotel - enjoy your vacation.
