Reviewed September 29, 2011

First of all I must say that I personally didn't stay at this hotel - but booked it as a surprise anniversary trip for my parents.

I dealt with Maria who was excellent - friendly, quick to respond to e-mails, patient and extremely efficient. Booking was easy and she helped with any queries I had e.g. booking day trips and storing luggage in the event of an early arrival.

My parents reported that they absolutely loved this hotel and would love to stay again. From my own perspective, my whole experience was positive. I was 100% sure just from those few e-mails with Maria (and other reviews here on TA) that my parents would have a lovely stay.

The hotel is easy to reach by bus or ferry but my parents did note that they had to wait until the fourth C10 bus from San Giovanni station before they could board so if you are tired or in a hurry, it may be worth paying for the hotel pick up or take a taxi/walk to como le nord as the bus station and start of C10 route is there.

This is one of the best places we stayed at on the 2 week trip through the Italian Lakes. Great food, great location (walk to Villa Carlotta), wonderful rooms with the views of Bellagio, very helpful and attentive staff. Would come back any minute. The food was so good that in addition to breakfast and both dinners, we also came back for lunch. Thanks to TripAdisor for suggesting this place for our stay in Tremezzo.

We stayed 3 nites and had a wonderful time at La Darsena. Tremezzo is the best place to stay on the Lake, and La Dersena the best hotel. A small hotel, away from the crowds, very friendly family-run hotel, spacious room, quiet and great views, excellent breakfast and coffee ! Highly recommended, we will certainly be back to this hotel in our future trips to Italy.

We stayed 4 nights in La Darsena and would happily recommend it.We had a lovely room with a little balcony overlooking the lake and found the whole setting just wonderful.The staff were always kind and courteous and we were very grateful for the use of an umbrella on a particularly wet Sunday.Breakfasts were good and plentiful and I would advise guests to try the home-made jams,especially the peach jam.Delicious!!

Room Tip: Definitely best to choose a room overlooking the lake rather than the busy road.

We have just returned home after one of the best holidays we have had. La Darsena was perfect in every way,the cleanliness the beautiful position on the lake, friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff, the delicious food and glorious weather. Flowers were put in our room on our 55th wedding anniversary, what a lovely touch.

We spent a week at La Darsena and but for one thing would have awarded a 5 star rating. Although the hotel has direct lakefront access it is also on a busy road and when we booked the only rooms available were at the back of the hotel. There was a lot of traffic noise in our side room with lake view. Coming from a quiet village we needed ear plugs to sleep at La Darsena and there was no way we could leave a window open. A real shame as the weather was perfect. Make sure you book a lake front room!

Having said that the room was spacious and comfortable. This is a small intimate hotel and the customers are treated very well. The staff went out of their way to ensure we had a table overlooking the lake for dinner. We ate three dinners and each one was delicious and beautifully presented. The Tiramisu was the best we have ever tasted. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the view from the terrace over the water was wonderful. A perfect way to start the morning.

The staff were very nice and the lady on reception was particularly helpful offering advice on local activities and sights.

There is a small bar in the park beside the hotel, a perfect place to sit outside and watch the comings and goings on the lake whilst enjoying an aperitif.

In summary, we would happily go back but only if a lakeside room was available.

Room Tip: Room with lake view

We have just returned from Italy where we had the great pleasure to stay at Hotel La Darsena. We found the location to be great and I strongly recommend the lakeside rooms with balcony. Room 103, a corner room,was great fun with two balconies. The rooms were large and very clean with nice wood floors. The bathrooms were large and very clean. We enjoyed the lake and mountain views and most especially the full moon that rose over the lake during our visit. We enjoyed a terrific meal one evening in the restaurant and the daily breakfasts were substantial and offered many great choices. The ferry, which covers the lake in both directions, was steps from the hotel. Very convenient. There were several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.

But the very best part was the staff. They were very friendly, efficient and most helpful. They were at the desk all day and took our food orders during breakfast and dinner. We weren't sure when they slept because they made themselves available to us whenever we needed them. Their English was excellent! We felt welcome from the first minute we entered the hotel. We were most sorry to leave and look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: Request a lakeside room with balcony. Room 103 has a great party balcony over the lake.
