We recently stayed at the Darsena for a weeks holiday in early Sept. and what a great hotel this is, both in location and service/hospitality. We managers were always pleasant and made us feel very welcome.

We can't praise this hotel enough. A must if you want to stay in Tremezzo.

The La Darsena Hotel is beautifully situated at the side of Lake Como, it simply couldn't be in a better position. We had one of the lake view rooms with a balcony and it was very special to open the doors of the balcony and to be looking straight out over the lake. The hotel is easy to get to from Como, we took the C10 bus on the way there and the fast ferry on the way back. I definitely recommend the fast ferry, it was much more comfortable and didn't cost that much more (about 15 euros each). The bus stops outside the hotel and the ferry arrives 100 yards down the road, so very convenient. Our room was lovely and quite spacious. I think it is important to remember though that this is a 3 star hotel. It is an exceptionally good one but you are not going to get the facilities of a 4 star. I confess I would have liked to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room and some comfortable seating. The bathroom was clean and modern. Room cleaning was carried out very well every day. Besides the wonderful lake views, I consider that the best thing about the hotel was the fabulous restaurant. It certainly wasn't cheap, but the food was absolutely excellent and the restaurant was always busy, both with hotel residents and people coming from other hotels etc. Breakfast was also very good, not a huge variety of foods, but plentiful and of good quality. Do try the home made jams, which were brilliant. As others have said, the staff at this hotel are extremely pleasant and eager to help in any way. Some of the large hotels may have more in the way of room facilities, but La Darsena more than holds its own in terms of location, service and its restaurant.

Room Tip: It would have to be a lake view room every time for me. It would be such a shame to stay here and no...

Beautiful room with breakfast. Stayed for 2 nights. Had dinner here on the balcony on the water. Delicious food and beautifully presented. Will definitely stay here again when we return next year for a longer stay. Ferry is in walking distance as is Villa Carlotta. Friendly and informative owners. The Lake is truly heaven on earth.

We had a wonderful stay here after a hellish experience at the Milan airport where our passports were lost or stolen. The hotel staff and owner worked so hard helping us to contact police and airlines to find our passports. We were so grateful.

The hotel is lovely and extremely clean and modernized but without losing any old world charm. Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, and the restaurant.... oh the restaurant! The pasta made my husband nearly cry.

Room Tip: ask for a lake view room. even the attic ones on the lake side are lovely. the street side is a li...

Delightful little hotel with an excellent restaurant and great views over the lake. Run by 2 brothers and nothing is too much trouble. The room was comfortable and well cleaned. We had a lovely stay and wish we could have stayed longer. A evening meal in the restaurant 1 evening is also recommended, it is clearly 1 of the popular places to eat locally - excellent food.

Room Tip: Ask for side/ lake view room

Spacious airy rooms many overlooking lake with outstanding views across to Bellagio. Strange decor but you get used to it. We were in a room with partial lake view next to road, but did not find the traffic noisy. Easy walking distance of passenger ferry to Bellagio and other resorts. Don't take the car ferry which crosses further up the road if you have heavy baggage and are on foot. Hourly bus service to Menaggio. Gourmet restaurant worthy of its reputation which also serves an excellent breakfast, overlooking the lake. We missed the hotel when we left for another in Bellagio.

We stayed here in the middle of August. The quality of the hotel was outstanding, staff were really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We took the halfboard deal and the food was first class. My normally fussy kids really liked the food- for them it was perfect- Italian enough but not too radical the adult food was purely Italian. . The view over the lake was out of this world. Nearby is a lovely park and wine bar serving snacks. One thing the local shops are great but if you want any thing for the beech take it with you. Come here you'll love it. Might be worth coming in a taxi as train, boat & ferry is quite arduous.
