Hotel Risi
Ranked #3 of 3 Hotels in Colico
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This hotel has amazing views looking out over Lake Como which is aestically pleasing to the eye.
The hotel could be done with some decoration work to the rooms as they are a bit dated.
I would recommend the restaurant which is very good for Authentic Italian food. Its very busy, which is a good sign in my opinion.
The staff at the hotel were excellent. I borrowed the hotels mountain bike (FOC) and was touring around the village in my spare time.
The free wifi offered by the hotel was good, slight intermittent problem with the reception but on the whole it worked well.
The hotel has a free car park which is a 2 minute walk.
I was recommended this hotel by my customers in the area and wasn't disappointed.
It would be a nice location for a romantic break as a couple.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of Lake Como.

Hotel Risi is an excellent 3 star hotel in the quiet town of Colico at the side of Lake Como. The restaurant is extremely busy at the weekends which is a testament to the cooking at the hotel. Although we were on a Treyn tour and on a set menu, our daily choice never disappointed. The room was charming with a view to the lake. The furniture was a little rustic but a liberal application of talcum powder to the drawer runners cured the sticking and jamming! We were on the 1st floor but the view of the Lake was fine and we watched the daily boats come into the mooring opposite. The room was kept exceptionally clean by a very efficient maid service. The restaurant staff too were very efficient and helpful. Apart from the storm which knocked out the wifi and was unable to be repaired, we could not fault the hotel for the service and value that it provided. Again 'Fi' our Treyn guide was just the ticket and had everything so well organised that the holiday was one of the most relaxing we have had for a while. We achieved so much and once again cannot fault Treyn for providing an exceptional value for money trip.

With the mountains, with the location, Hotel Risi and its staff and rooms overlooking the Lake Then appreciate the care, attention and organisation brought to us by our tour Guide 'Fi' of Treyn Holidays'. This was a full week of excellence despite the mixed weather. Food, ambience could not be bettered. Missing it already.

Room Tip: Ask fro third floor front facing.

This hotel is right across the street from Lago di Como. It is 20 feet from the Boat launch that takes you to the many small towns around the lake. It is about 50 feet from the main square where one can enjoy a freshly made Capuchino or Gelato to help people watch. The restaurant is excellent if you want a nice bite to eat.This is the place to stay when you are near the northern tip of Lake Como.

Room Tip: Choose a room that faces the lake for a spectacular view of the Swiss Alps. Book early as this place...

My wife, sister-in-law and I recently spent 5 nights in this wonderful hotel. The hotel has a wonderful dining room and a separate bar area where drinks and light foods and desert are served. We had rented a 2 bedroom suite on the 4th floor, and though the furnishings were a bit dated, the space was a perfect choice for our entourage.
The suite had an extremely large and well appointed bathroom, a living area and kitchen space with a stove top and fridge. All the necessary flatware, glassware and plates were available.
The beds were very firm which was just what the doctor ordered for a good night's sleep. The highlight of the room though is the balcony overlooking beautiful Lake Como.
People, this is an exceptionally beautiful lake and the surrounding area matches the lake for beauty. The dining room served a very nice breakfast also overlooking the lake. The employees in the dining room and reception were all very nice and were eager to help us find the right restaurant or the right place to go for shopping & sight seeing.
The hotel Risi is an excellent choice for your stay in the Northern Lake Como area.

It was now my 3rd time to stay at the Hotel Risi and in different rooms every time and now found my favorite. It's the lakeview room on the 3rd floor. The food would be another reason to stay there or at least to eat there. No complaints at all.

we stayed in the Hotel Risi,September 2013, the hotel is clean & tidy, with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms with the lakeside views would be very hard to beat. We stayed for 3 nights and would have stayed longer if we had the time. Third and fourth floors are best for the views of the lake. Breakfast was provided and plenty of choices, fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals etc, varied selection of tea's. Would like to return soon with family/friends in the near future.

Room Tip: 3rd 4th floors
