A fine place to stay in Como area
Posted Oct 8, 2016
This hotel was a nice adventure. We had a room on upper 5th floor; to get there you need to take two funiculars up a steep cliff, then an elevator. The view out our window was stunning overlooking the lake. The room was simple; king bed with dressers and night stands. Tile floor and bathroom was just fine. The breakfast was a pleasing European affair with meats, cheeses, pastries and yogurts.
A bit tricky to find. When traveling down through town, you will pass on your left a public parking facility. Right after that you will see a road that veers left and up towards the hotel. Take that road for a hundred yards or so and then the road narrows a bit and there is a sign with a big red X on it, for no admittance...or so I thought. It turns out you can drive further up; if any people walking down they get up against the wall to let you pass. Up top is the hotel parking. Worth the effort...very pleased.
