To be honest this is more of a good rather than very good hotel. The location is perfect though and convenient to walk to and around lake Como. The hotel itself is a little tired in places and in need of a refresh (the bar), but the staff are polite and efficient and the rooms are good. Bedrooms are a... More

Uniformed guy, also reminding a character from that movie, helping us with the baggage. Later it appeared that the great portal is not entrance to the main lobby. And inside the hotel -... More
