One of the historical hotels on Lake Como, the Grand Hotel Imperiale is a 4 star Hotel Resort of great charm, built in late Art Nouveau style, with a new wing reminiscent of the Rationalist style which originated in Como. The hotel looks directly on to the Lake and is set in a luxuriant garden. The hotel has kept all the atmosphere of a period hotel, in a very picturesque setting, as though it were an integral part of the landscape and architecture typical of this part of Lake Como.
Garage Euros 18 per night, all other extras (bar, restaurant, mini bar, internet, etcetera)

Large rooms but no view. Extra 20 Euro for parking quite steep when room rate already high (some free parks on street nearby). Great breakfast and selection (checks it's included in booking). Freezing cold pool, shame it wasn't even slightly heated.
We stayed at this hotel the first time we visted Como and were not disappointed. The location is great -- 5 minutes out of town from the main city, a ferry stop right outside, and several restaurants across the street. It's on the same street as
George Clooney's house (but in the next town over). A+ service, great room, great building. The one negative is that the restaurant and amenities are expensive. For instance the breakfast buffet is 20 euro per person. If you are willing to pay, the amenities are high quality at least.

Short walk from hotel
Eat at the little restaurant around the corner for great food at less than half the price of the hotel.
Very "rustic", certainly not a modern hotel... the staff was friendly, the room was clean and the food was great. We hit this hotel right after peak tourist season so it felt a little empty - which is not bad.
The room we booked was supposed to have a balcony and it didn't- so we were told for another 25 Euros we could upgrade to a room with a balcony - and we did... meaning we were no longer in the old Italian quaint part of the hotel, but rather in
the Modern/Trendy part of the hotel... this wasn't as romantic since you practically share a balcony with your neighbor. Moltrasio is not a happening city as they make it seem ... there are 7 restaurants within walking distance - 3 at the hotel and 3 at the neigboring hotel and one beach bar with inconsistent hours, but great food. There is little to no nightlife. The staff wasn't well versed in English, so if you don't speak Italian, don't stay here - they also get very aggrivated when you don't speak the language. For the price of this hotel - stay in Como or Cernobio... they're much livlier and friendlier than this small town. The hotel also doesn't have a look to it like the pictures on their website - on the website it looks very pristine and established. I think this has been photoshopped to remove graffiti and the other buildings which block this "view" from the lake.
We had constant problems with the TV and the power went out 3 times during our stay.
