We stayed one night at Darsena on our way up to the mountains. We were a bit early but our room were ready so we could check in. The room was clean and nice, window towards the lake.
We had dinner at the Darsena restaurant and it was pleasant surprise. Good service and good food, the dessert was the best!

Good with free parking just outside the hotel.

We were in Italy for 2 weeks and stayed at Hotel La Darsena for three nights at the end of our trip. This was by far our favorite place to stay and we stayed in some wonderful places. What sets this hotel apart is really the the customer service, hospitality and friendliness of the staff. It is a family run hotel and it really shows. You really feel as though you are experiencing authentic Italy but in a friendly way with an old family feel. These people are just plain nice.

Another thing that really set this hotel apart is the food in the restaurant. We are into really good food and are gluten and dairy free. The hotel was prepared for our arrival with the most amazing gluten free bread I have ever had for dinner on our first night. For breakfast...they had gotten more gluten free goodies for us and soy milk for my coffee. My husband and I are not pasta fans but the homemade corn gluten free pasta my son had for dinner was incredible. We stuck with seafood or whatever we wanted and they tailored it for us. Ezio (one of the owners) could tell you where all the ingredients came from and was extremely knowledgable about his food. We ended up eating here every night of our stay because it was really that good.

The rooms were very clean as were the bathrooms. The hotel sits on the water so the location is great. You are next door to a beautiful park and a short 2 minute walk away from the ferry to take you to Bellagio and the other lake como towns. There is not too much to do in Tremezzo as is a little town so it is nice to be close to the ferry. We had a 7 year old with us so we went to Bellagio and hit a castle and chocolate factory in nearby Swiss towns. If we were on our own without kids...we would have been fine to just hang out at the hotel and park and take in the beautiful scenery.

Thank you Hotel la Darsena for making our last few nights in Italy memorable. Oh and one more thing. We LOVED their balsamic vinegar...it was the best (no preservatives) and we asked where we could buy it. As we were leaving they left two bottles of it for us...thank you! Its the little things that made this place unique.

Room Tip: We had a room that faced the lake. It was an attic room without a balcony. We thought it was great. There was a skylight and a window in case we wanted fresh air. There was also a window in the bathroom. Very clean

A lovely boutique hotel on Lake Como. Location is wonderful and very easy to access shuttle boats around the lake. Parked our car for the entire time we were here.

My wife and I spent 5 days here in early July and were very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel, the very friendly and accommodating staff and with our room. We had a lake view room with two balconies which was awesome. Definitely a relaxing and serene environment. A lovely buffet breakfast was available each day and served on the balcony of the dining room overlooking the lake. A very special way to start your day.

The hotel owners took special care in acknowledging each guest every day, providing a warm and memorable experience. Would definitely stay in this lakeside gem again.

We are here now at La Darsena sitting on our beautiful balcony stretching out our last of four days in Tremezzo.

In addition to the great things people have already said about the lovely rooms and balconies, I'd like to add that I've never experienced hotel owners who work so hard to please and always with a smile. They make it look effortless. Everything is "No Problem!" Always time for a chat or a thorough answer to a question.

The setting cannot be beat. . . . . .your room is literally hanging over the lake. The breeze is divine.

The community park (so lovely) is just next door, and if you love open water swimming, you can just dive in and take a grand swim morning, noon, and night. The local families and children are there squeeling with delight and splashing around, AND there is ample space for a real swim along the shore. And after your swim, you can take a stroll through the delightful community park.

We are seasoned travelers and we both agree that this has been one of our most memorable stays. And by the way, the food can't be beat. We've tried nearly everything on the menu. We come back each evening for more.

Thank you Tiziano and Ezio for a most pleasurable experience. We don't know when we will be back in this part of the world, but we will certainly tell our friends to book early.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the lake are wonderful. We did take a peak into the others. They are still nice rooms but without the view.

We stayed in La Darsena for two nights and it was just perfect. No photo can descrive how awesome the bedrooms are. Even the fourniture inside looks better when you see it in reality. We had the room with two balconies. Best views ever, you'd never go out from those chairs in the balcony. The breakfast is just awesome. Homemade croissants and a great variety of food. And the service is perfect. The hotel doesn't have any common area.... so what? I didn't miss it. If we had to say two "negative" points: very slow internet (although it's for free) and in the morning the light eneters inside the room even with the courtains so it makes it difficult to sleep. The parking is also for free. There are not many free spots but the owner will always be helpful in that sense. And we always found a spot so no problem with that either. In short: if you go to La Darsena, you'll enjoy your stay for sure.
