Falls short of expectations

This hotel is not suitable for people with impaired mobility. Key areas (reception, breakfast and dining room, bar) involve negotiating steps with no handrails nor ramps. The rooms in the newly refurbished wing are very ordinary, and amenities (wifi, room service) are short of expectations for a hotel in this price range.

Great Hotel - Small Rooms

The Palace is a great four-star hotel right by the transportation piers. The location and staff couldn't be better. The restaurant is also excellent. The rooms are on the small side and there is no room for a desk or comfy chairs. Other than that, the furnishings, especially the rain shower in the bathroom, are first-class.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The water taxi is by far the least expensive way to get to the other towns on the lake, like Bellagio. The scenery during the trip is fantastic.

Beautiful View

The hotel is close enough to the train station that the cab ride is inexpensive and the location is ideal. Within a few minutes walking you can take a boat around the lower end of Lake Como and to the Funiculor to the top of the mountain. The hotel staff is nice and the rooms are fairly spacious.

The ride up the Funiculor is 5 Euro and well worth it. There is an amazing view from the top and a little town you can walk around.

Perfect Location, Gorgeous from the Outside, the Inside is another Story

This hotel is a pebbles throw from the Lake. It is a great location as it is right next to one of Como's train stations. It is a short walk to shopping and the Duomo. However, the actual room was disappointing. Since the options available allow you to get a standard room with no lakeview, we ended up with a room that faced a busy alley and the garbage cans. We couldn't open one of our windows since the smell of dirty garbage would have engulfed our whole room. And since we couldn't control the temperature in the room, we were constantly opening and closing the windows. The room itself was spacious compared to most european rooms, but I don't think it had been updated for 40 years and it smelled it. The bed was very firm and not plush like most nice hotel beds. The linens were not soft as well so getting a good nights sleep was not in the picture. It was nice that the breakfast was included but was nothing special. One of the girls that worked the front desk was wonderful and extremely helpful while some of the other employees were lacking. Overall, the location was ideal, but the room itself was not one of a 4 star hotel.

Excellent location, great old charm hotel...

Rooms are old, but comfortable. Bathroom clean, but if you love modern bathrooms, this is not your place. No central air, unit is in the room, lucky me, weather was cool I did not have turn it on. Breakfast was good, Location is good, walk to all the shopping, literally across the street from lake and boats... Hotel provides paid parking!
