No thanksPosted Jul 23, 2014
When I walked in my room for the first time I was immediately hit with a strong odor of "old". It stunk so bad that it seemed like no one had cleaned or opened a window in there for a century. I didn't want to even eat or sleep in there. The shower head is absolutely horrible and the water goes all over the floor. Also there's a light outside the door that let's staff know when you are in/out of your room which makes me uncomfortable. I once left that light on to make it appear like I was in the room and left the do not disturb sign on the door and left for the day only to come back and find that hotel staff had entered my room. Overall I don't recommend this hotel. The location isn't bad but the quality of the rooms isn't worth the location.

Nicely situated on the water at the south of the lake. Old world charm, big rooms, comfortable big beds. Nice bathrooms except low water pressure makes taking a bath a lengthy experience. Good restaurant and breakfast experience.

Close to ferry terminal and central to everthingPosted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: I would stay here again.
Cons: Tea and coffee facilities in the room
Location: Tourist bureau is right next door. The ferry terminal is acroos the road on the lake and the starting point to enjoy all to see in Lake Como.
The hotel had old world charm but its position is its best feature. The buffet breakfast was sufficient nad the staff made it enjoyable. Evening meal wer of a higher standard.

Excellent location for overnight stay.Posted May 5, 2014
Location: A boat trip up lake Como is a must and a meal in the traditional Osteria del Gallo is recommended. No menus, just excellent freshly prepared food.
Beautiful looking hotel from the outside and an old world serene charm inside. All the staff were very efficient and helpful. Our room on the top floor was surprisingly quiet when the window was closed but when open it was fascinating to see and hear the hub bub of the piazza and lake front and watch the funicular in action until late at night. The breakfast was excellent served in an elegant restaurant with the views of the lake.The location was perfect being a few minutes from the Lago Nord station, opposite the ferries and near all the shops and cathedral.

Family visit to Lake ComoPosted Mar 10, 2014
Cons: Rooms on the side of the lake is quite noisy at night because of the road that runs next to it.
Hotel situated next to Lake Como with wonderful views. Ferries depart right in front of the hotel and it is very easy to discover the lake. Good restaurants nearby. Lots to see and discover with some fantastic villas. We discovered the area by seaplane; it is definitely worth it!
