Great location,comfortable beds,kind and helpful staff.
The interiors look outdated rather than vintage.The hotel definitely needs rennovation.
The location was excellent, close to restaurants and bars and shopping.
It didn't live up to 4 star accomodation
Great location. Great view of the Lake & surrounds. Close to station re arrival/departure. Most of all, friendly, courteous & helpful service (the French could learn a thing or 2 from your staff!) . Had a very enjoyable & relaxing stay. Would definately return & recommend to other family & friends.
No - 100% satisfied.
Our room had a balcony with a lake view which was stunning. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and breakfast was very good. The hotel is very central to all the boat landings and not far from the station. I would recommend this hotel and definitely come again.
Very comfortable; wonderful breakfast buffet and interesting dinner menu; beautiful lake-view; great location, really easy to access and move around the city, nearby shops and museums.
Charge for WIFI internet; a tad bit noisy at night; very friendly staff but not so helpful.
Nice central position with great views of Lake Como and the mountains, convenient for exploring the whole area with good access from airports.
Great staff,good position,clean rooms and breakfast good.
The location of the Hotel was great, very accessible to shops lake transport. Breakfasts were great too plenty to choose from and good quality.
the location could not have been better for access to the lake and the city and the receptionist in particular was very accomadating
the arrangements for the breakfast could have been better organised as people had to queue for quite some time to be seated
Great views over the lake front, great location
Rather old build meant that soundproofing was not the best. A lot of traffic / road noise during the night
Easy access by car to Monza (for the Italian Grand Prix) whilst providing a relatively restful break each evening in a quieter area. Good buffet breakfast included in room rate.
1. The requirement to pay for parking in a four star hotel when so many guests would be likely to travel to Como by car. 2. The non-availability of free wireless internet in-room. Hence, "services/facilities" and "value for money" only rated as "fair". The hotel website does not make it clear that these facilities are to be paid for in addition to the room rate. Any recommendation would be accompanied by a warning about these shortcomings.
Enjoyed convenient location and excellent included breakfast buffet. Room had a balcony with a great lake view.
Did not have on-site parking.
I loved the location, we had a fantastic view from our balcony over Lake Como and were in very close proximity to shops and restaurants.
The door leading to the balcony didn't shut, so it was noisy during the night. The restaurant always looked very empty at night, not a good sign!
The location and views of the lake weed excellent
Lovely view from junior suite on top floor two balconies. Hotel situated very near shops and restaurants. Staff very friendly. Was offered upgrade from room to junior suite at a price but was worth it.
