Recent guest reviews

Location was perfect,got train from Milan which was easy and station walking distance to hotel. Room clean, fresh, beds changed daily, fridge in room and balcony overlooking lake, perfect. Staff are probably most helpful in a long time. Lovely pleasant welcome on arrival and very informative. Booked bed and breakfast for 6 nights so overwhelmed when were given 3 meal vouchers for free evening meal in hotel. We thought would be a catch however the nicest 3 course meal had in long time and very competitive wine price list too. Grilled asparagus n cheese to start, sea bass, fresh veg n potatoes for main followed by a delightful orange cake all presented beautifully. Breakfast was basic like most continental hotels however eggs n bacon too and plenty of choice with bread, meats, cheeses, cereal and fresh fruit. Definitely recommend this hotel as very pleasurable all round

Wonderful hotel starting our Italy Tour. Beautiful scenery, great location. Very friendly staff and nice big room. Good food. Many cafes and shopping right outside the front door. Must buy some gelato!! Recommend highly. CT

Spent 3 nights here from Sunday 28th until 31st May. Location was brilliant - as opposite the pier to get boats along the lake. The hotel is very poor standard, needs a thorough re-decoration. Breakfast was absolutely disgusting, no variation or choice of anything and the breakfast room is really depressing. We only had breakfast at the hotel for 1 day and after used to leave the hotel and eat at local cafes. It needs a total update. The staff are very nice and welcoming especially Mirene. The rooms clean but like I said needs modernising. In a way, it spoilt our holiday and I don't think I would recommend this hotel. Maria Pattichis

Great location! Can walk from the train station, located right at the boat docks to explore the Lake and villages. Easy walk into Como for shopping and restaurants. Staff very helpful, nice rooms, breakfast and dinner at the hotel very good.

The best location! With a bar, restaurant and charming Euro vibe. Helpful staff. We spent 3 perfect nights. The hotel is in the prime center where you have access to everything. Many of the rooms have views of the lake but the best part is the location and the the lovely staff.

This hotel is located in front of the lack. We could see the beautiful lack from the window. The staffs were very polite and the breakfast was various. Everything was agreeable. But, one thing that bothered us was that we couldn't find how to enter the hotel parking. So, we've turned around the area of the hotel several times. If you go by car, you had better ask hot to enter the hotel parking in advance.

This hotel is great if you just need a place to stay with great location. It's nothing special, but has everything you need for a good sleep, shower and breakfast. It's right across from the ferry which takes you around the lakes - super easy. It's 5 minutes walk to the train station and 10 minutes from the funicular tram. Around the corner is all the fun of Como town - the street cafes, shops and fruit markets. The staff are friendly and the breakfast is very ordinary. It's cheap!

This is a very old hotel.... smelly and in dire need of renovation. The water seeped in the room from the balcony when it rained there were damp patches on the wall I normally don't write negative but this hotel should get better.. They need to improve. The staff at breakfast is good They inform me that taxi is there but no one offered help with the luggage.Even though they bid be a good bye. This is not good hospitality.

We stayed here as part of a Gate 1 Tour group but arrived a day earlier than the rest of the group at our own cost. There seems to be a variety of opinions online regarding the rooms & everyone in our group seemed to have slightly different types of rooms. Our room was lovely - very old-worldly with a small balcony on the side of the hotel that overlooked the lake. The rooms aren't ultra-modern but I think they have their own charm which we just loved. The staff in the restaurant & bar were excellent - friendly and attentive. We had dinner there & ate the prawn, lime & thyme risotto - my husband & I both agreed it was the best risotto we had ever eaten (& hubby cooks great risotto), so hats off to the chef on this one. You can't beat this hotel for its position across the road from the lake. The only reason I've given this hotel 4 out of 5 is that the water pressure in the shower was terrible plus the walls between the rooms are quite thin - I could hear the bloke next door snoring at night - everything else we really enjoyed.

We did not actually plan to stay at this hotel, however due to unexpected booking cancellation we tried to find a hotel that is centrally located in Como. The location is excellent, close to the central pier where you would take the ferry around lake Como. Staff were friendly and helpful, check in was efficient. The only issue that we had was the hotel condition which was really old. We have been staying in some old hotels but at this hotel we really felt that it needed a makeover.
