I knew before we arrived that I was going to like this hotel. The communication we had had from the hotel when I booked was very prompt and gave us options I wasn't aware we could have. Upon arrival we were greeted wonderfully and given maps of the area with suggestions on what to do. The room was lovely overlooked...

From the minute we arrived we loved this place. This hotel is exactly as good as the photos show. The owners were so nice and it felt like a family hotel. Our room was compact but very comfortable. They even did a bag of washing for us which after 4 weeks on the road was very welcome. We enjoyed dinner...

A quite little hotel nearby Lake Como in a small town about 15 km from Como. Nice wine bar under the hotel with friendly people. Only a few parking places for cars which made it sometimes difficult to park.

A family owend hotel. Clean, nice staf and a very good restaurant and nice winebar in the near the hotel. You can reach Como by boat or by car. Possibility to make nice walks (green walk without cars :-) and nice ridings around the lake. I love the place.

The owner of the hotel are incredibly kind and helpful. We had a lovely stay here with our two children en route to Tuscany. Since we were traveling with children, we especially appreciated the play toys that were available. Also the pizzeria attached to the hotel was delicious. Thank you!

The hotel was exactly what we needed and our room was upgraded! Everything is closed in January so their restaurant was not open, but we didn't mind as their hospitality made up for it. Great value and would recommend.

An older and small property run by very friendly owners. In the winter is stays open but the restaurant is closed. The rooms are nice, basic with good beds and double glazing (roadside), with airco and free wifi. Bathrooms are old but well maintained. Parking in front of the hotel or in nearby public garage/parking. Stayed 2 nights in room...

At first was hesitant to stay in this part of the lake as it is quite far from the main areas such as Bellagio. Ultimately, however, it was the best decision. Great hotel with nice views from the rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant in the hotel also great, with great views of the lake. Pier located just opposite...

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
