“A room with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We loved this hotel - the staff were lovely - very helpful! We had chosen this hotel because it was a small family run hotel, and it was perfect. The room was wonderful, with a view overlooking the lake, and a balcony. It was a lovely light and airy room. The food was fabulous - we ate there both nights we were there. The dining room also had a wonderful view overlooking the water of Lake Como, and was a bright and well presented environment. I would certainly recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room overlooking the lake - we requested the corner room which had two balconies...

We have been looking to stay at the Darsena for some time, when we spotted a booking possibility late Sep/early Oct. Stayed six nights half board. Wonderful hospitality from the family, really excellent food and service, both dinner and breakfast. Very clean comfortable room overlooking the lake, with the ferries passing close to the window and a wonderful view across the lake to Bellagio. Location excellent for the ferries and local buses, we forsook a hire car for a change. Access from Linate easily accomplished, using buses and trains. Beautiful area, we will be going back to explore further some time in the future.

Room Tip: Lakeside rooms a must.

The best thing about this hotel is that everything you read in previous reviews is true. It is an impeccably run boutique hotel and restaurant right on the waters edge. We stayed 4 nights and dined in 3 of those, it is best to reserve a table early because even though the restaurant is quite large it is often booked out by locals or other tourists, it's that good. It is family run and nothing is to much trouble, the included breakfast is a delight, the free wifi is good, the bed was very comfortable, the room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom was a little bit tight in a wheelchair, it had a wheel in shower with a shower stool, a good vanity basin and toilet but there were no grab rails. Unfortunately there is only the one wheelchair accessible room (room 109) and it is at the rear with a double glazed window on to the road, you do get a little bit of noise but not enough to make it uncomfortable or stop you sleeping. The ferry stop is only about 150 metres from the hotel and is accessible via a footpath which is very narrow in parts. Villa Carlotta is about 500 metres away and is completely wheelchair accessible if you have a narrow chair. In all our stay at Hotel La Darsena was a highlight of our holiday in Italy and we would love to stay here again. The only other advice I can give is book in early.

Read previous reviews and decided to book here for 2 nights. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in attic room 222 which has a small window looking directly over the lake. Room very quiet, spotlessly clean with good Wifi signal in the room. If we came again would definitely try and secure lakeside balcony room on the first floor.
Ate at the restaurant on our first night on the balcony. Excellent food and service with a thoroughly relaxing view. Hard to beat watching 2 white swans and their young cygnet feeding just below us and then watching the quite large lake fish feeding the following morning at breakfast.
The restaurant prices are a little higher than some of the other Tremezzo restaurants but this is more than made up by the quality, service and the excellent wine cellar.
An excellent choice if you are staying in Tremezzo.

Room Tip: Try and secure a lakeside balcony room on the first floor the extra cost is well worth it

This was our first visit to La Darsena and it won't be our last . The two brothers-in-law who own the hotel were wonderful to us even accommodating us at the last minute for dinner when we didn't have reservations and it was raining so hard, we couldn't leave the hotel. It was very much appreciated. The view on the lake were spectacular and the breakfast was spectacular, with the best fresh fruit salad ever.

We wanted a place with a balcony overlooking the lake that wasn't a huge hotel for 3 nights. You are made to feel really welcome upon arrival and throughout your stay.. Breakfast was just as good as the view Including home made jams. The best fresh bread and croissants we have had so far. Our room was spacious and pictures show the good bathroom. We booked dinner there and it was also delicious and made for a delightful evening. Other nights guests having dinner are heard if windows left open but no sounds if closed and all is ended by midnight even on a Saturday night this was no problem for us any night going to bed 11 pm. Mid lake location can be more difficult to get to late in the day by boat if coming a long distance but the bus runs there departing Como lakeside 8:30pm about 50 mins. Last ferry from Bellagio isn't late enough if you wish to have dinner there unless you use boat taxi.

Room Tip: Lakeside room for view to Bellagio is with the extra dollars as road is directly behind hotel.

We took a trip to Lake Como for a friend's wedding and picked La Darsena as our hotel base. It was a fantastic stay - the location is right on the lake (as opposed to most of the accommodation in the area that is across the road from the lake), the staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was very good. The hotel incorporates a restaurant that is used for the breakfast buffet and sitting at the table looking out across the lake is absolutely wonderful. I would definitely return and thoroughly recommend the hotel.
