Milan, Italy
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The location of this hotel iS central and very convenient. However the impressive outside facade portrays something that is not matched on the inside. Poor service, poor room and hotel decor. They have basically turned the magnificent main building into offices and a conference facility, and are operating the hotel in a another building right next door.

Dear 777paula2017, thank you for your review. I am truly sorry for failing to meet your expectations. We normally pride ourselves on the excellent comments received about our service and hospitality. The Palace Hotel is indeed developed in two buildings: the magnificent main building does in fact host 62 completely renovated rooms and our conference centre. No offices are present....

Located in heart of Como should make this place special but unfortunately it is quite old hotel which should be renovated long time ago. Old rooms with not nice taste and damaged equipment - rather B&B not a Palace. Service Ok, breakfast Italian style but OK. Prices too high comparing to the quality.

The hotel is a great location in Como very close to the train station and right across from the ferry port which takes you to the other towns on the lake. Bars, restaurants & shops are within minutes walking distance. The hotel has lovely grounds and free car parking very convenient.

The Palace hotel is well located in Como close to the lake. The staff is very friendly and willing to help. The superior rooms are clean and fairly large but are starting to be fairly out of date. A refurbishing is needed. Therer is no dry cleaning service in the hotel which is surprising for a 4 stars. The erstaurant...

My family enjoyed the breakfast at the Palace Hotel every morning. Ambience was fantastic with the mountain view at the backdrop, interior felt like the grand and pretty version of Laduree restaurant in Champs Élysées.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Majestic and prestigious, the Palace Hotel faces the lakefront and perfectly combines the Liberty style of its main building "Plinius" with the classic lines of the "Pianella" wing; two styles, yet one soul defining the Palace and its history, making this property unique. The hotel features 94 rooms - the majority of which completely renovated - and common areas where the elegant atmosphere of the art deco blends with the modern facilities of the highest standards. ... more   less
