Hotel Miralago
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in Cernobbio
Reviewed August 11, 2010

A short walk from the boat dock to the hotel, we paid more for a lake view (and so well worth it). We stayed 2 nights, dined at the hotel restaurant, and had their speciality "Rissoto with Fresh Lake Fish" both nights because it was so delicious. The hotel is charming.

The location is wonderfull. No parking near, and they give you a place to park, not so near, and they do not report that it is charged. The hotel was poorly renovated. The room is very small. Even the place for an only suitcase is so small that it falls immediatly. We had to put it under the table. You are charged for a balkony, but it is too small to get in. the balkonies on the first floor are bigger ut no one tells you. Opening the balkony doors give permission for moskitoes and other flies to get in. Then, you close doors only to find that whatever you do with the aircondition result in a message "centrally controled" which is not understood by the reception. So - you sleep in 29 centigrade (!!) and a lot of showers. All doors are cracked. I slept in 5 Italian hotels in this trip. All of them were very good. This one has the location and nothing else.

To all who seek quiet comfort, good food and elegant surroundings then the Miralago is the hotel for you. I booked two rooms for myself and my parents for one week - we all agreed we should have stayed a month! The place itself is lovely but the hotel was the crowning glory. The staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them. My mother has a restricted diet - every evening the owner asked her what she felt like eating and he prepared it regardless as to whether it was on the menu or not. He always advised on the dish of the day so that really I didn't bother to look at the menu and just trusted him to bring me whatever he thought best. The food was excellent - while there I ate ravioli stuffed with fish from the lake and served in a divine seafood sauce - I really wanted to lick the plate it was so good. The wine was superb and we were only drinking the house wine!! The rooms are lovely and everywhere you look there are lovely black and white photos of how Cernobbio looked 50, 60, 100 years ago. The only disruption to your afternoon nap is the church bells chiming the hour which is so romantic. The pace of life here is slow and elegant, no one shouts yet everyone is happy. While we were there the local Cernobbio Festival opened with a gala all about Dante. It was so interesting and entertaining. Ferries run regularly from the end of the pier which is a two minute walk from the hotel, to Como and other towns and villages on the lake. This place is a real gem! I cannot wait to go back.

Stayed for two nights while visiting Lake Como; the hotel is in a small village just outside Como town but perfectly located to catch ferries to all parts of the lake. There are a couple of bars and restaurants to eat in evening if you don't want to go into Como.

The hotel reception staff were friendly and helpful. We had a Deluxe room which was ok but would be interested to see the size and decor in lower standard rooms as facilities were basic. The room was clean though. Would recommend for location but don't expect much from the rooms.

This hotel is on the waterfront and a short 1minute stroll to the ferry along the promenade.

Breakfast is a range of fruits, yoghurts, pastries, cereals, cold meats and cheeses, with bread. The toaster is slow and the toast comes out crumbly, so I gave up on toast, but that's the only complaint I had with breakfast. Coffee was on tap and if you wanted an espresso or capuccino you just had to ask. There is plenty of food, and the service is prompt and attentive at breakfast.

The hotel serves delicious and fairly inexpensive meals for lunch and dinner and we ate here on a number of occasions. At the time of staying, you got a 10% discount if you booked the meal to your account. The whole area is a sea of fantastic restaurants and cafes, with deli's in the shopping area selling all manner of pre-cooked foods if you wanted to eat cheaper.

We stayed in room 414, which was the largest on the floor. Ask for a balcony room if you can, because that will give you 3 balconies to access from your room...delicious when the evening breeze starts up.

The internet is wi-fi and cost 5euros a day for 24 hours.

The rooms are a little hot for us, the airconditioning not quite up to the challenge in this hot climate, but we managed. An afternoon siesta was a must to cope with this heat.

There didn't appear to be room service, but the mini bar had plenty of cold drinks.

The hotel is spacious and pretty, and everyone speaks english.

The hotel doesn't serve meals after breakfast on Wednesdays.

The bathroom is huge in our room, don't know about other rooms. The shower is excellent.

If you bring a string/stretch travel clothesline then you'll have 3 balconies to choose from when it comes to drying clothes. We were here for 10 days and that became an issue as it's not that cheap to get clothes laundered here.

My husband and I loved staying here and we'd come again in a heartbeat. It's perfectly positioned and the views are fantastic. We would stroll over to catch the ferry to Como and other lakes district towns.

this is an older style hotel set right by Lake Como in the delightful town of Cernobbio -- it is absolutely lovely with balconied windows overlooking the lake. the staff is helpful and very friendly, the restaurant is very nice with outside tables and a good breakfast included. there is a ferry dock nearby with boats to many other Lake locations. we cant wait to go back. if you require a very quiet room you might want to pass up the view and ask for a room on the back -- the lake front can be a little noisy at night.
