“Sleepy weekend getaway...great service.”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

We stayed at this place through a few recommendations... As a young couple looking for a couple of days of rest and relaxation this was perfect! We arrived via boat to Torno... It is quite a remote area of Lake Como, but is accessible via all major routes. There is a delightful restaurant situated on the water with delicious food and wine and is great value for money. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and even helped book us a few day trips. The only down point was there was no air conditioning, and after a few unusual days of humid weather there was no relief in the dead of the night.
We will continue to be recommending this hotel to friends!

Well firstly if your after total 5 star pampering this is not for you and there are many many places that will charge you up to 1000 Euros a night nearby and that offer the identicle experince that every other 5 star gaff offers.

Now thats out of the way I have to say having stayed in a wide variety of the best hotels in the world that my experience here was something close to perfect. The village of Torno is like something from a picture book, its dominated by a square with a tiny port right on lake Como surrounded by friendly and frankly excellent restraunts (a cheap pizza/beer place and a family run bar and restraunt with amzing local dishes). Then on the right hand side is The Vapore which has an outside dining area right on the Lake complete with boat moorings. The food is stunning every single night and the wine list is great and well priced. The hotel itself is bloody charming and the staff are lovely people almost all family of the owners. The rooms are very basic (Bed, TV, Lamp Shower sink) but imaculate and clean and best of all have a series of panoramic windows and shutters most of which overlook the lake or the square. I cannot descibe the view or the sounds of the lake that drif in your room, heaven. My 2 year old son LOVED the whole place, from the boatman (Marco) to the food and the boats themselves. And more importantly the locals totally loved him and made him feel very special (imagine that in spain or France). He has not stopped talking about Torno, The Vapore or indeed Marco since and would be beside himself if he though we were not going back (we are). In short, the best holiday I have had in Europe. People forget these days that Chrome and Marble lobbys with contempory art dont maketh a fantastic hotel. Only location staff and food can do that, and The Vapore has all of those in spades full. One last thing to point out is that I honestly did not run into anyone that wasnt Swiss or Italian on our whole stay but I wonder how long the secret of this place will stay that way. George Clooney aparently lives opposite and Matt Bellamy from Muse not far down the lake, I'm told that both Liam Gallagher and Louis Walsh have been looking too. Enjoy whilst you can!!
