We stayed in the hotel in February, so only claim I have, that it was a little bit cold in the room. Everything all was really excellent. Stuff was very friendly and helpful. We came at about midnight and were allowed to checkout late, at 1 pm. We had the room with lake view and a balcony. It surely worth...

Stayed at the hotel very recently and found it to be a really pleasant stay! The view from the hotel room was stunning over the lake and the owners are lovely and very welcoming! (Do anything for you!) Breakfast is continental and nice! We went out of season so it was very quiet and the weather wasn't great but couldn't...

After spending a glorious week skiing in Cervinia, I had a last minute idea to stay one night in Lake Como on our way back to Milan. We booked a night at Hotel Orso Bruno after stumbling upon an old (albeit great) review of the hotel in the New York Times Travel section online...I wasn't sure if it would still...

This family run hotel is located about a 15-minute drive from Como and is immediately across the road from the ferry and bus stops. We very much enjoyed our stay at Hotel Orso Bruno. Our room was clean and spacious, and had gorgeous views over the lake from one window and the village from the other window. A continental breakfast...

We stayed here 3 nights. We had a car but we used also the water shuttle to Como exactly in front of the hotel. We enjoyed a lot, also will send friends if will ask about the location. The food in the pizza restaurant was excellent.

We found this beautiful family run hotel by accident, what a delight it turned out to be. Right on the lake in a quaint village setting, stunning views, wonderful hosts, exceptionally clean rooms, lovely breakfast. We only stayed one night and wished it could have been longer. Thank you Antonia and Samuel for adding to the wonderful memories of our...

We stayed here for a couple of nights with out small Child that was at the time 6months old. We were met and treated very well and felt just as if we were visiting some friends. This is really a great hotel if you accept a fan for air conditioning and limited options closeby for food and shopping. So if...

My husband and I just returned from Italy and we spent 3 nights at Hotel Orso Bruno. This is a lovely B&B directly on the lake. We had a car so getting around was not a problem. The road is a little noisy but the view is amazing. The restaurant is a wonderful gem. Antonia & Samuel cater to anything...

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was clean and basic but the view was a #10. Ask for one of the front rooms with a balcony. You might hear a little road noise but the view is worth it. Their pizza restaurant served much more than pizza and was very good with a very ambitious menu. The hotel...

I chose this hotel based on other reviews and was not disappointed! We rented two rooms for our family of five. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. We were given boat schedules and directions, as well as tips on things to see and do. The passenger ferry across the street was super...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
L'albergo lo scoprite dopo infinite curve dagli scorci sempre diversi ed emozionanti, arrivate accostando comodamente l’auto sul piazzale di fronte e scendendo vi accorgete dell’incantevole posizione di questo piccolo albergo che si specchia orgogliosamente nel lago ed è avvolto dal rassicurante abbraccio delle montagne. Se arrivate di mattina il colore predominante è azzurro dalle sfumature d’oro, il tramonto invece è rosa.Ad accogliervi troverete sempre noi e sempre un sorriso e dopo un celere check in potrete andare direttamente in camera o rilassarvi un attimo nel nostro bar o nel nostro salottino sbirciando attraverso le vetrate l’animata quotidianità che si svolge al di fuori. Dicono che non ci sia panorama più affascinante del lago visto dal lago e per i nostri clienti più curiosi l’imbarco della navigazione proprio di fronte l’albergo sarà un’ irrinunciabile comodità per una gita in battello. ... more   less
