Very nice room overlooking beautiful Lake Como. We chose to wander around the area and eat dinner out, however, there was a dining area adjacent to the Lobby. The front desk was staffed by very pleasant people. Was surprised in the morning to see 15 or so canopies across the street in a plaza each with wonderful Italian items like... More

With no control over our arrival time, we got to the hotel at 11 a.m. No problem! They let us check in early and were given a corner room with a great view of the lake, even though we had not requested a view and did not have to pay for it. The room was very nice, very ample in... More

We found the hotel without any trouble, registered, and took our car to their sister hotel’s (Palace) garage, where she was parked automatically in (we were told) a seven-story deep garage with eleven cars per floor for 16 euros. The hotel was an older hotel and very nice. The lights on either side of the bed could have been brighter,... More

Have to say expected more modern interior due to the outdoor exterior. Indoor was more quant antique, very lovely, comfortable room. Must say to Danielle at the front desk, THANK YOU for accommodating a very grouchy traveler (me). The view is spectacular, breakfast was delicious and location was perfect. All of the staff was very friendly and courteous.

Our travel agent recommended this hotel as it is very central for the Lake Como region. She was right! We were right across the road from the ferry service, 2 minutes from restaurants and shops, a short taxi ride from the train station. The room was spacious, bathroom and amenities clean, great balcony overlooking the lake.
