        I did like the location. It was located in a appropriate distance from where I did the purpose of my stay.

        In my opinion the hotel needs maintenance, and will benefit of a total renovation, in order to comply being a 4 star hotel. To me it is more or less a standard 3 star hotel. The 4th star is most likely caused by the location. Having said that, I do not mind using the hotel again due to above mentioned rating.

      • Family with children
        7.0

        Perfict location on Lake Como, rooms are clean

        I have arrived to the hotel with my children at around 10:30 am after long international flights but hotel staff refused to allow us for check in before 02:00 pm, we had hard time waiting till this time.

      • Older travelers

        the location is perfect

        every thing was fine but I think the price of the hotel is to high

      • Couple
        7.4

        The view of Lake Como was superb and the reception and bar staff were very helpful

        The walls were very thin and so we were woken up very early by the people in the next room talking. Some of the decor was a little tired, but passable.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Location The hotel was kept very clean & tidy.

        The hot breakfast items [scrambled egg/bacon etc.] were not kept hot - on some occassions they were almost cold. No "casual" bar where snacks as opposed to restaurant meals could be taken.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        very warm and polite welcome at reception.big room and bathroom.we chose to stay in a room with back view ;the Duomo,which protected us from any outside noise from the center of the city.the staff was well organized.we noticed a lamp in the bathroom was out and there was a knock on the door from a man who came to replace it,which meant that the housekeeper had already informed the responsible persons.

        no complaints at all.

      • Group of friends
        8.2

        Pleasant room well soundproof, with a good view of the lake. Friendly staff, good breakfast

      • Couple
        7.8

        The hotel is in the perfect location. Everything is very close by and the view is amazing. We upgraded to a lakeview room and it is well worth it.

        I found it quite expensive. The hotel is in an extremely noisey location due to the road in front of it and the walls are extremely thin. Ear plugs are a necessity here. I was not impressed by the e15 per night charge for car parking.

      • Older travelers
        6.6

        good location-balcony room spacious

        no local information-no leaflets available to what was on in the local area-no cheap snacks available

      • Group of friends
        9.6

        Excellent location, so near shops and restaurants. All the staff were very friendly and helpful the barman even suggested a very nice restaurant for us to visit.And the reception staff were more then helpful,

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        Superb view of the lake from a lake view room on the fifth floor with a balcony. (Definitely worth upgrading.) The staff were very efficient and friendly and the overall service was excellent. We had travelled to Italy by train and the station at Como was only a ten minute walk away from the hotel.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        Excellent location. Very clean. Comfortable bathroom with good shower. Relatively spacious room.

        Very noisy location, as all city buses make a turn right in front of the hotel and then stop, with a noisy engine running, as of 7 A.M. One can also hear noises from the corridor as there is no double door in the room. The staff could be a bit more friendly. No wi fi in the room and old tv set. No parking. No charm, just efficient and sparkling.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        We liked the convenienve to the town and lake

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Location, location, location! Lake Como is one of the most beautiful spots in the world and this hotel is in the prime location to take advantage of all that Como has to offer

        Extra charges for internet -- penny ante stuff in this day and age

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Convenient to lake and ferry and funicular and old city centre. Good breakfast

        Suggest using Como Nord lago train station as it is within easy walking.
