Crotto del Misto
Ranked #6 of 9 Lezzeno B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 30, 2012

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of July. Having spent a busy week at Lake Garda, we decided to visit Lake Como for a little more peace! The drive up to the hotel from the centre of Lake Como took about 50 minutes, the road is very windy and narrow and if you get behind a motorhome as we did, it can be quite a tedious journey. However, the minute you reach the hotel, you forget all about the motorhome and the tedious journey. This place is a little,undiscovered (it seems by many) spectacular place to stay with the most wonderful views of the lake. The business has been owned by the same family for over 300 years (obviously a few generations!) and is run precisely and perfectly in my opinion. The staff (family) are so helpful but most of all, sincere, one can tell that they are genuine people. The rooms are basic but very clean with nice recently refurbished bathrooms. The view from the bedroom and bathrooms as I said before are stunning. You fling open the shutters upon waking and you are in paradise! The hotel is right on the lake, infact you couldn't get any nearer to it if you tried. The pool is lovely and there are ample sunbeds. The visit to the restaurant is a must, this place is famous on Como and renowned for its wonderfully cooked food. The only downside for me was that we couldn't really go for a stroll after dinner. There is no pavement on the road and the nearest place to walk to is quite a walk, don't get me wrong I love walking, but walking on a bendy road with cars flying round at top speed is not for me. This of course is no fault of the hotel, but I had to point it out. To be honest, everything you need is at the hotel, food, drink, watersports, pool, free wi fi, there is even a lounge with a bookcase full of books that previous travellers have left behind. I would say that you need a car to visit this place as there are such wonderful places nearby. Bellagio is a ten minute drive, we took the car on the ferry across to the other side of the lake (31 euros return) and drove up to an adorable little place called Lanzo D'Intelvi, where you can follow a road which takes you to a mountain top where you can see the four lakes and the surrounding mountains. Another five minutes drive and you're in Switzerland (no need for passports anymore, the barrier was up and the checkpoint which once was was shut!) So, if you're thinking about Crotto Del Misto, I say just go for it!!! From Como centre just head towards Bellagio and you won't go wrong. By the way, ask the proprietor to show you around the cantina, it is over 300 years old and is absolutely fascinating. Have fun!!!

Room Tip: Go for a room with a lake view.

If your travelling to Lake Como, Crotto del Misto is the place to stay.
You will get the full Italian holiday experience on the Lake.

Rooms are comfortable and pleasant with new renovated bathrooms and has internet access.
Worth booking in a Lake view from as the views are spectacular!
Lezzeno is only a short 10 minute car trip to Bellagio, which makes it easy for sight seeing and other activities.

Crotto Del Misto has everything you need, no need to leave the grounds if you don't want to. Great pool for summer months, water sports - wake boarding and skiing lessons available.

Great restaurant within the Hotel for wining and dining. One of best restaurants we ate in Lake Como!

Hotel is very family friendly, or very romantic stay for couples and lots of fun for groups of friends.

A visit to Lake Como has always been a dream of mine. I travelled alone in 2010 and had such a wonderful time I came back again 12 months later with my husband. The train trip from Milan is easy and the bus ride from Como To Lezzuno something to remember! Once at the Crotto though it’s like another world, there’s no need to leave, everything is there, the facilities are fantastic for all water sports, the restaurant food with wine to match is amazing. The resort is family run and very fun and friendly. If you have to have a shop, Bellagio or Como is only a 20 min bus trip away both with amazing shopping.
PS: The family recipe of the white fish pate is a must!!!
PSS: A tour of the wine cellar is something to remember, the crotto is naturally cooled by the mountain and spring water and the temperature does not change year round!
PSSS: The views, the views, the views!

This really is a hidden gem in Lake Como. Beautiful setting right on the lake with pool, water sports, an amazing wine feller you can take a tour round and blissfully peaceful. The owners are very welcoming, run by a few generations of family. Bedrooms are basic but more than comfortable (you are not going to be in your room for long!).

Few tips - you can get a bus ticket from the bar a short walk left out of the hotel which would take you either to Como or Bellagio to pick up the ferry and do a day trip. We went from Como to Cerbino, Trezzmeno, Melagio, Verena and finally finished in Bellagio for dinner later that day and caught a taxi back later that evening to the hotel. I would be tempted next time to change it round and end in Cerbino for dinner, it was beautiful!
There are a few good restaurants near the hotel, particularly Hotel Auberge a short drive left from the hotel, beautiful food.
You will need a car to get to the hotel from the airport and is handy for trips out for dinner

Only improvements (and these are minor I must stress) is breakfast is very basic, would be good to maybe offer eggs as an option and although others are saying how great the restaurant food is I have to say I wasn't overly impressed, but these really are just minors!

Do not hesitate to book this hotel, most other hotels we saw didn't match the character, location and charm of this place

The staff were fantastic and made us feel very happy and comfortable.
The facilities were great with amazing views from the poolside area and restaurant.
The food served in the restaurant was of a very high quality.
I was taught how to wakeboard on the lake.
The location of the hotel was in a very quaint, picturesque area that was not too close to any real busy, crowded tourist thriving places. This gave us a taste of true life on the lake.
The value of the stay was extremely reasonable and I will be returning indefinitely in the future.

We stayed here for a long weekend in June 2012 after deciding to visit Lake Como. The Crotto del Misto is a wonderful family-run hotel on the banks of Lake Como with a wakeboard/ski school attached! The service was warm, welcoming and first-class. The food was local, authentic and delicious. The rooms were clean, spacious and simply furnished and the wakeboarding was great fun with excellent coaching included.

The hotel is situated in the small village of Lezzeno on Lake Como. Emphasis on small. It is a 20 minute walk to the nearest ferry in the centre of Lezzeno (main way of getting about the lake) and there is a bus connection north to Bellagio (which has better ferry connections) and south to Como.

Overall we would definitely recommend the Crotto and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have lake view

We stayed at crotto two years in a row my husband couldn't believe the celler under the restaraunt was older than Australia! We love it there the people are friendly and love children and you have to try the fish pate it's the best!!! Can't wait to go back.
