Dull and dated hotel.

Would not recommend Sun, Oct 4, 2015
We stayed one night in Como on the way home from a 6 night stay in Bellagio. The first impression of this Hotel was how dull and dowdy it looks. This impression lasts all the way through the hotel. It needs a total refurbishment to modernise to current expectations. Not all the facilities in the room worked - which they were going to report to maintenance. The breakfast was very poor both in choice and quality. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone - especially for the price you pay. If it was a third of the price you may say you get what you paid for.

Perfect stop for a trip to Milan

Would recommend Sun, Mar 23, 2014
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

Would not recommend Thu, May 10, 2012
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!

Dining

Sister in Laws on Holiday

Would recommend Tue, Oct 18, 2011
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 hint

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

Would recommend Wed, Aug 18, 2010
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!

Attractions

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

Would recommend Mon, Jan 11, 2010
Good location, lake view room worth the extra. Parking is at the Palace, a sister hotel about 100 yards away. Friendly and helpful staff.
