“Renewing past visit”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We visited Lake Como for the first time 8 years ago staying at the Grand Hotel Tremezzo. During our stay we visited La Darsena for several meals and found the quality of food and service extremely good and sensibly priced. We took a brochure of the Hotel La Darsena and vowed that one day we would return and stay there rather than the Grand. 8 years on and we did just that to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday.
We stayed for 1 week in the best room lakeside with 2 balconies overlooking a magnificent view of Lake Como, and booked half board as we knew the food would be memorable. We were not disappointed. The standard has been maintained impeccably. The family who run La Darsena are incredibly charming and professional, and our stay there could not be faulted. The food remains at a very high standard and the wines are very reasonably priced and the whole staff are extremely helpful and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend La Darsena to the most discerning clients for a memorable holiday on Lake Como. The position of the hotel is exceptional, with easy access by boat to the best locations on the lake.

Room Tip: Stay lakeside to avoid traffic noise and definitely book half board as this is the best restaurant o...

After a lovely drive up from Milan to Lake Como, we arrived at La Darsena - a beautiful little hotel right on the lake. The room has a balcony overlooking the lake with a breathtaking view towards Bellagio. It was in perfect condition and was quite spacious. The breakfasts were excellent and the two dinners we enjoyed at their restaurant were easily the best we had in Italy (we had traveled through Venice and Milan on our way to Lake Como). The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the location right on the lake is perfect. It's a short walk to the ferry stop which we took to Bellagio and to Villa Balbianello in Lenno. And it's a short walk to Villa Carlotta which is a definite must see in Tremezzo. Don't know when we'll be back in that part of the world, but we'd be sure to stay at La Darsena again.

We have been at La Darsena hotel last october!
More than located in a wonderfull, dreaming place...This hotel is quiet surprising!
We didn't expect what we've lived.
This hotel is so made Italia, romantic and exquisite !
The room was perfect..good bed, beautiful view, big bathroom, clean... So perfect!
The most surprising thing was the restaurant... The pumpkin risotto was the best Risotto of my life!
No the best dish I have ever eaten! Congratulation for that !

Moreover the breakfast in front of the lake was MAGIC !!!

So keep going I will definitely recommend this hotel and come back one day because I will remember this short stay of 1 night all my life!

Stayed at this incredible small inn for one week last fall. Truly a spectacular place. Accomodations included a 5 star several course breakfast each day. The inn is directly on the water ...making it rare, since most hotels are across the road and up and away from the shoreline. Many of the recipes include ingredients from the owners gardens ..how rare is that!
Honestly, we can not say enough .....it was a stop on our tour of Italy that we shall never, never forget. Travelers worldwide...enjoy!!

We can only agree with all the other favourable reviews on Tripadvisor - La Darsana really is a great place to stay when visiting Lake Como. We were "en route" to Italy by car and thought a stop-over on Lake Como would make a relaxing break. One of our reasons for choosing La Darsana was because unlike many hotels in the area it's restaurant was open on a Sunday evening and as it was full, make sure you book! All the staff were friendly, our room was comfortable with a small balcony overlooking the lake and the dinner we had in the restaurant which also enjoys a lovely lake view, was truly excellent, as was the all inclusive breakfast. The drive to Tremezzo from the motorway takes about half an hour on a narrow twisty lakeside road....but the Darsana is definitely worth it! Thank you for a very memorable stop.

Room Tip: This is not an expensive hotel so do pay the extra for a lake view room.

Thank you Trip Advisor for providing us this review site. We chose Hotel La Darsena having never been to the Lake Como region and had an unbelieveable three nights...We were about to book in Bellaggio when we read the reviews of La Darsena.in Tremezzo and decided to try it. It is a small boutique hotel with 13 rooms and a 5 star restaurant that sits over the water with incredible views. It was much quieter and a less commercial atmosphere than Bellagio and the staff was very friendly providing any information you need about getting around the lake region.
If you are looking for a small, quiet, great service, personal boutique hotel with very nice rooms and views Hotel La Darsena is definitely my first pick for you. We can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Book early so you get a room with a balcony overlooking the lake. Rooms 103 and 107 have 2 balconie...

We stayed here on our last day of our Italian trip. We had arrived early but although our room was not ready everything was done to accommodate us. Our luggage was stored and a pass was given to us for parking.The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
We then made our way to Villa Carlotta and were greatly impressed by this magnificent house and above all the gardens. It is only a ten minute walk from the hotel. The weather was closing in so we decided to make our way back to the hotel and pick up waterproofs before making our way to the jetty which is just beside the hotel. We had chosen the hotel for its location and rooms over the lake. The location of the hotel enabled us to use the ferry facilities and not have to worry about driving afterwards! Bellagio was certainly worth the visit. What a quaint spot.
We had chosen a room with balcony over the lake and my only regret is that we did not get to use it. By the time we came back to the hotel it was pouring and we could barely see the other side of the lake! The rain was on for the night so we decided to eat in the restaurant and for once I have to thank the rain! What a wonderful meal! We opted for the taster menu and were delighted with our meal. Can't believe how much we ate!!
Breakfast the following morning was spent gazing at yet more rain. What a pity as this place has so much to offer in respect of outlook. We will just have to return in better weather. We would highly recommend!
