Convenient location. You'll feel at home.

The owner of the property is very nice and would help us with anything we asked. She also gave us discounted tickets for Villa La Carlotta which is walking distance.

great location

Posted Oct 6, 2016 on Hotels
great to eat breakfast overlooking the lake, but difficult to find food in the area in the evening other than the expensive attached gourmet restaurant. easy walk to the ferry. friendly staff, but the room could do with updating.

Great small family run hotel on lakeside

Posted Sep 13, 2016
Pros: Owners, food, view, old fashioned style.
Location: Middle of Lake Como so ideal position to explore all of the lake via car, bus ferry etc.
We loved this hotel although it wont suit everyone. I knew what to expect based on previous reviews and it lived upto expectations. Small family run, owners couldn't have been more helpful, parking very close by. Best bits were position right on the lakeside and freshly cooked locally sourced food. It is right on a busy main road which wouldn't suit everyone and I wouldn't have been happy with young children there, although it did quieten down through the night. Dinner in evening was a fixed menu but varied and delicious however you need to be able to eat most things to fully enjoy it. Breakfast buffet was delicious. Good old fashioned style and hospitality with modern conveniences like air con and Wifi as well.

Simple rooms, great location

Posted Aug 29, 2016
Pros: Great location, friendly staff and perfect breakfasts.
Cons: Furnishings and décor just a bit dated. Damaged curtain in room 12.
Location: Ferries from just down the road to Bellagio and Varenna.
We stayed 4 days late July. Small hotel just over the road from the lake. The rooms were simply furnished, and with a tiny balcony looking over to the breakfast terrace next to the lake. Those breakfasts were again simple but perfectly formed - choice of eggs and a cold buffet of breads meat cheese. perfectly ripe fruit and home-made preserves etc. All served on the shady terrace with amazing views. Didn't have dinner there as the menu did not have many choices that appealed, but plenty of restaurant options in Menaggio. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

fabulous stay

Posted Aug 18, 2016
Pros: beautiful lakeside position within easy walking distance of lido, bars and ferry. Lovely helpful staff and wonderful fresh food.
Fabulous stay at this characterful hotel. Lovely staff and wonderful breakfast, served on the edge of the lake. Paola was full of advice and information about the local area and was happy to lend beach shoes and towels for lake swimming and even did a load of washing for us! Location is just at the far end of Griante lakeside but restaurants and ferry in easy walking distance, although the bus stops directly outside. Only drawback is the road, which passes directly in front but the positives definitely outweigh this.

Charming hotel with stunning views of Lake Como.

Posted Aug 14, 2016
Lovely, characterful hotel right on the shore of Lake Como. It is on the main road so if you are disturbed by traffic noise then this might be a problem with rooms at the front. However this is more than made up for by the stunning, uninterrupted views which are breathtaking! The owners are fantastic and really make this hotel a very friendly place to stay. The rooms are spotless and cleaned daily. The breakfast is the usual continental affair of cereals, bread, cheese, ham etc, and boiled or scrambled eggs! Ideally placed(1/3 of a mile) for the ferry(15eur for a day ticket) which will take you exploring across the lake to picture postcard hamlets!

Delightful experience

Small hotel on lakeside. Delightful owners who were generous with their time helping us with their local knowledge. Good breakfast served by the Lake, weather permitting. Evening meal highly recommend. Free parking

Unforgettable Room with A Lake View

Posted Jul 18, 2016
Pros: Room with the lake view and the balcony.
Cons: Hotel WiFi did not work for the whole night, even though it is part of the hotel amenity.
Location: Take the ferry to Bellagio, then visit the beautiful Villas, or shopping
We got a lake side view room with a double door open to a balcony. Even though we stayed there for only one night, we enjoyed the sunset view of the lake and mountains, and in morning, sitting in the balcony, breath the fresh air and looking at the fantastic view of lake Como. The hotel is walking distance to the ferry which runs every 15 min to Bellagio.

A good choice with an Aussie recommendation.

Pauola was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is served on the waterfront terrace if the weather is appealing and the bonnie Irish lass Kate negotiates the morning traffic to ensure you enjoy it.
