4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Amazing hotel with fantastic views! Positioned across the road from the lake. Ferry terminal 2 minute walk. The best place to stay in Como town. The staff here are very helpful and speak English:) parking available.

Hotel with old style and modern comfort.Centrally located, everything in walking distance.

Great location in Como. Excellent staff and breakfast. Room was small and ordinary.

Cons: no free wifi, room is really small. Pros: excellent breakfast buffet included in price

Nice, convenient, old fashioned hotel. Walking distance to the town center, shops, restaurants. Lake view!

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.

very friendly and professional staff. Perfect location for our plans. Beautiful setting!

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 palace hotel locate convinent place to everywhere at Como in Italy. The rooms are clean and everyone kindly communicate with smile. It is a little disappoint no free drinks like coffee or tea with pot in a room. However, total score is more than average.

Very comfortable,great views, good breakfast, central location, but no pool

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.

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!
