The Hotel is right on the Lake about two minutes walk from a boat terminal which is on the regular boat route around Lake Como. For those travelling by car it has plenty of parking and is on the main Lake road. It is two minutes walk from Tremezzo and close to Villa Carlotta. The service is spot on and very friendly and personal. We had a bottle of Champagne and a welcome card which i thought was a nice touch. The staff speak relatively good english and are always delighted to help. When booking make sure you get a lake side room. Book early as they only have a small number of rooms. The road side rooms can be a bit noisy and if you are staying more than two nights may detract from your stay.The rooms themselves are a good size and functional not luxurious but comfortable.The hotel also has a very good restaurant which is also popular with the local's. Always a good sign!

Room Tip: Book Lake side with balcony....you get one of the best views on the Lake

The hotel was recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. This was one of the best hotels we have stayed in whilst in Italy. We stayed for a week while attending a wedding nearby. The hotel is located a short walk just along from the ferry dock at Tremezzo and is right on the edge of the lake. It has fantastic views over the lake to Bellagio. The main bus between Como and Colico stops just over the road from the hotel and the mini train from Menaggio also stops at the ferry dock. Do not be put off if you stay in one of the 'attic rooms'. It was busy when we stayed due to the Grand Prix at Monza and the only room available was the attic room. It has two velux windows which provided lots of light and are operated electronically. All the facilities in the room and the hotel itself were of top quality. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and clean. The room had a TV, free WIFI, minibar, safe, air con, hair dryer and the bathroom had a good sized shower. Everything was in good order. The staff were friendly and the standard of food in the restaurant was excellent. The best meal we had all week was at the Darsena. Breakfast was always fresh and they had a good variety of food available to eat while you look out over the lake. Definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake are quieter. The rooms on the other side are near to the road, so no lake view...

We stayed 4 nights at La Darsena and loved every minute. The location could not be better - it's right on the water and from our balcony we could look across the lake and see the lights of Bellagio on the other side. We spent 5 weeks in Europe and our stay here was the highlight of our holiday. Breakfast was the best we had anywhere, and to be able to eat it on the balcony overlooking the lake was magic. We had one evening meal here - food and service were both excellent. Other nights we ate at different restaurants in Tremezzo, all within 5 minutes' walk, as is the ferry stop. We really liked Tremezzo - it was the perfect base from which to explore Lake Como. We met English people who come back to La Darsena every year and I can understand why - I only wish we were close enough to do the same!

Room Tip: We had a corner room with 2 balconies. Fabulous view, very quiet.

I've stayed both at La Darsena and hotels nearby that were slightly cheaper, but nothing compares to this place. I chose the room on the top floor with a view, and it was totally worth it - absolutely stunning! The internet worked great and the staff was friendly. It's in the perfect location, as it's a short walk to the ferry (and is directly across from Bellagio, so the ferry ride is quick and easy!). Great place all around!

We stayed for three nights in this small family run hotel on the lake shore. The owners and staff are all most friendly and helpful and the location is superb. The buffet breakfast was excellent and our room was spacious and clean. If you can ask for a Lake view room.

We ate all three nights in the restaurant and were lucky to get a table on the balcony overlooking the lake as the sun set, absolutely superb. The view was matched by the cooking which was the best we had during our trip to Italy.

The hotel is only a short walk from the ferry stop at Tremezzo and has a nice park next door. Also it has parking adjacent to the hotel.

Hotel La Darsena is strategically placed with the most tremendous views overlooking the beauty of the Lake - providing you ask for a Lake view room, of course. Our room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was superb. We stayed for 8 nights and enjoyed every moment. It was wonderful to return to after sightseeing. It is conveniently placed to get ferry, buses etc. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. Restaurant was also excellent.
We would highly recommend!

Room Tip: It is well worth booking a balcony and lake view!

We have just returned from a one week stay at this hotel. This small and beautiful hotel lies on the lakeside. The rooms are nicely furnished with a small balcony hanging over the lake with wonderful views. Breakfast (excellent) and lunch and dinner (at a very high standard) can be taken on the restuarant balcony as well. We ate in some nights and out on others. HOWEVER what makes this hotel really special are the staff - on the desk, in the kitchen and in the restaurant - and we mustn't forget the room cleaning staff who also did a great job. I would classify the service as EXTRAORDINARY. Thank you.

Room Tip: Choose a lakeview room. It is well worth the supplement.
