Perfect stop for a trip to Milan

We planned a day trip to Milan, but the hotels were hard to find at a reasonable price. Found this hotel on the shore of Lake Como for only a 5 euro train ride outside of Milan. It has great views across the public square of the lake and mountains, and in a nice, quiet area with plenty of restaurants close by.

May 2012 Stay

We stayed for two nights. For the price this is a very average to poor hotel. It's very tired. The building is quite ugly in person. Beds not comfortable. We won't come back. Sorry!

Sister in Laws on Holiday

The women at the front desk were amazing, the lacation was the best you could hope for, we loved it. We walked everywhere and the boats to cross the lake were just across a beautiful square w/ restaurants and shops. We would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Como. Enjoy and Caio

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

On Saturdays Como has a open air market by the old wall, ask anyone they know the location. We purchased many things for the folks back home and our selves, but be sure to check labels, look for make in Italy. We had a ball.

Comfortable with great views

This was a two-night stay on route for Tuscany - it proved an ideal base for two days of relaxation. View from room across Lake Como was superb and hotel felt very comfortable and friendly. Parking is at a nearby hotel and easily acccessible. Some good local restaurants, especially for sea-food. Como will look better when current lake-front improvements have been finished - currently a bit of a building site. Even with satnav, finding the route through Como from the motorway was an interesting experience - returning was much easier!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

For those who like to lounge in the sun there is a decent lido a fair walk along the lake side - usual facilities and at a reasonable cost.

Good Location

Good location, lake view room worth the extra. Parking is at the Palace, a sister hotel about 100 yards away. Friendly and helpful staff.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Across from the hotel is the Como Lake transportation hub. But a Turistico ticket for 6 Euro and take a 1 hour tour of the lake on the boat Taxi. It stops at 6 towns in the south end of the lake and you can get off and explore if you want - but the roundtrip ride is a great way to see the sites.
