“Great location and friendly host”
Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for two nights. Location was great and parking was easy. The host was very helpful in making recommendations on what to do and reservations for restaurants. It is right on the lake and the setting is beautiful. The only drawback...no fans in the room when it got really hot.

Stayed July 2012, traveled with family

My first trip to Como so I cannot really compare but must say that this hotel was everything we expected from it. The terrace of the restaurant was stunning with shade or sun when needed, the staff was friendly and willingly booked us restaurants, boat and other trips. Rooms were good, but go for the lakeview ones for perfect time. Restaurant is good, bit pricey but the view goes a long way! Good location to explore Como, can only recommend!

Taverna Bleu isn't blue from the outside but mustard. It sits right on the Lake with wonderful views across to the other side and a wonderful peaceful ambience. The staff are warm and friendly and particular recommendations go to Aurora, receptionist, who was infinitely helpful, cheerful and friendly. Our room had a large balcony fronting the lake and it was a joy to sit there and contemplate life and watch the ferries coming in and out. It was beautifully decorated and light and airy with wooden floors, the bed facing outwards to catch the best of the view through the French windows. The bathroom was large with good hot water. and An adequate breakfast was served and guests ate on the delightful patio in the garden. Our only criticism was the dinner. Although the restaurant had been reviewed as good we were very disappointed in the food which we thought very ordinary, lacking in any finesse. However, the restaurant La Tirlindana two minutes walk away on the edge of the Lake had spectacularly good food. Free WiFi was available in the room but the signal was very weak however adequate for checking emails. We had a car and parking was available in front of the hotel but we also travelled on both the ferry service and the buses which were very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony overlooking the lake.

Just got back from 3 nights at the Taverna Bleu.
It is a stunning, beautiful location.
Slightly challenging to get to without a car, but the hotel helped us with taxis to and from Lugano (for less than half the cost quoted by Lugano taxi companies).
The staff also helped organise buses, boats and tickets. We got a bit marooned on Sunday due to paucity of buses, but could still have got the small ferry from Sala Comacina to the Isola and taken a boat from there (however our kids were happy to just explore the island itself anyway). The staff were very helpful throughout the stay.
There were some small shops and restaurants nearby (as the hotel restaurant is quite pricey), but not much really, so be prepared for the quiet life here.
The apartment room has a full complement of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans and glasses, a fridge and a couple of hot plates, but we weren't able to use them for much due to lack of nearby shops for supplies - next time we'd be more organised though - the purpose of our short trip was to get a feel for the place before going back for a longer trip next time.
Although the hotel isn't specifically designed for kids, they were friendly and tolerant of ours, and the kids loved the place.

Room Tip: The rooms above the restaurant looked like they have spacious terraces, with stunning views ...

We loved our stay here - perfect location, in the gorgeous village of Sala Comacina. Great food and surroundings. The ferry to the historic island of Isola Comacina leaves from the front of the hotel (with little noise implications). Overall, highly recommended.

Room Tip: A room at the front of the hotel - overlooking the lake!

This hotel, on Lake Como, is a little gem in the quiet village of Sala Comacina. If you wish to avoid the throngs of day trippers in Bellagio and other popular towns, this is the place for you. The hotel has the advantage of a good parking area at the road level. From there you descend a flight of stairs through the hotel's garden to the terrace. Help is available to carry your bags, if needed. The owner, Gabriele, is very welcoming and helpful. He is happy to make suggestions for excursions. There is a landing stage right next to the hotel, from where ferry boats take you to other towns on Lake Como.
The rooms are finished to a high standard, with beautiful wooden floors, excellent bathrooms and constant hot water. There is free WiFi on the terrace, but not in the bedrooms. The restaurant is a bit pricey to use every day, but we foud two others nearby for dinner, that we would recommend. There is a delightful walk from the hotel along the water's edge, which leads to a little bay,where there is a restaurant called "La Tirlindana". We enjoyed eating fish there and watching small boats carrying diners across the short stretch of water to Lake Como's only island, Isola Comacina, where there is a restaurant. Another restaurant with good food, close to the hotel, is "La Comacina", where we ate on a balcony with lake views.

Room Tip: The lift only goes to the first floor, so if you have a problem climbing stairs, ask for a room ther...
