Spectacular view, exciting drivePosted Jul 11, 2015
Cons: English speaking
The hotel is located in Como suburbia on a mountain overlooking the city of Como and the lake with the surprisingly spectacular view from a balcony of every room (we even stayed extra day because of it). If you are a confident driver, you will share my excitement from the 5-km road from Como to the hotel, and finding a parking spot will be quite an entertaining challenge, since most of the empty spaces that don't block the streets are reserved for the registered residents only. For the reluctant commuter-type drivers I recommend the funicular line that runs from Como center to within 1-minute walk from a hotel (5.50 euros round-trip, operates till midnight in summer). Hotel personnel are inviting and helpful, but they speak only a few words in English. Breakfast is minimal, but it matches the hotel price range. The area is extremely quite at night (some might even say too quite) except for the neighboring church bells in the morning. The town of Como looks much better from the hotel balcony, than it does from the city center. Nice base to make half-day car trips along the shores of lake Como.

Don't go therePosted May 28, 2015 on Hotels
Swedish: Detta är det sämsta hotell jag någonsin bott på och jag har bott på flera hundra hotell runt omkring i världen. Bemötandet från personalen var helt ok bortset ifrån att det inte pratade ett ord engelska. Det fanns inget varmt vatten när jag skulle duscha och frukosten var ett skämt. Kvällen innan åt jag på resturangen som hör ihop med hotellet och maten var uppvärmd men inte hela. Jag måste på avråda dig från detta hotell, och då är jag ändå inte gnällig typ, jag brukar tåla mycket, men det här var över gränsen. English: This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and I have stayed at hundreds of hotels around the world. The response from staff was quite ok except for the fact that the didn't spoke one single word of English. There was no hot water when I was showering and the breakfast was a joke. The night before I ate on the dinning associated with the hotel and the food was heated but not the whole. I have to dissuade you from this hotel, and then I'm still not whiny type, but this was over the limit.

Highly recommendedPosted May 11, 2015 on Hotels
Best place to stay while in Como. 25euro taxi fare from train station, which is a set price. Absolutely a fabulous location, Swiss alps in distance, Como accessable by a venicular with station very close to hotel. Bathroom a bit squeezy but but excellent facilities. Good value for money. Early check out difficult as manager not on site.

Nice hotel up a mountain !Posted Apr 29, 2015
Pros: Amazing views, good breakfast, comfortable beds. It would be good to have tea making facilities in room though.
Cons: When Expedia advertising this hotel should mention from Como it is up a mountain & accessed only by fuinicula (rail) or car.
Location: Lots to do in area ferry on lakes, restaurants museums walking etc
Brunate is a pretty place with amazing views, helpful staff.

Hotel provides gorgeous overview of the lake and mountains. Location is quite convenient, hotel is about 100m from the top of funicular (~8min ride, EUR5.50 return ticket) which starts at about 300m from the train station (Como Nord Lago). The breakfast was fine. Staff was friendly. Rooms are quite small and unfortunately not very clean (as well as towels) which was a major disappointment. Also note that the reception is closed before 2pm.

Location, views & value great, minor compromises.Posted Sep 12, 2014 on Hotels
Location of Brunate, 800m above Como, provides great views and minimizes tourist zoo. Few, but very good options for dining and shopping. Vista Lago is next to church with bell tower if that matters. Mattresses could be firmer and in-room fridge barely cools. Breakfast buffet adequate, staff very helpful. Good value, would return.
