Albergo Ristorante Giardino
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Cernobbio
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2017

The Giardino hotel and restaurant is located on the central walking street of Cernobbio, a 2 minute walk from the promenade on the lake, where the ferry to Como also leaves.
The location is excellent to walk around the beautiful small town of Cernobbio, but be aware that it is on a one-way street with heavy traffic. This became evident during the evening and the morning when the room became quite noisy. Additionally, the blinds did not block out enough light, and overall the room felt a bit dated.

On the positive side, the staff of the hotel is very friendly, and the food offered both at breakfast and in the restaurant during other meals is very good.

I would stay again at this hotel because of its great location that allows you to walk around Cernobbio and get to Como quickly with the ferry, but request a newer room, which the hotel has.

Room Tip: Ask for newer rooms that do not face the street

Enjoyed a great pizza and a carafe of house red blend..... both very good. Staff was attentive and place had a good vibe.

My only knock is the decor. Super bright lights apparently to highlight art combined with modern decor isn't my idea of a relaxing evening in Italy. We like the old cantina atmosphere... stone walls, wood tables. Next time we'll to takeout.

Three pleasant nights at the hotel in a single apartment with breakfast:

- friendly service: (early) check-in/-out, socket-adapter, trip information etc.
- extensive breakfast
- top restaurant and possibility for take away (e.g. pizza)
- great WIFI
- central but quiet
- cozy room (functional bathroom with static shower head)

It did not feel like a business trip thanks to the location, the hotel and the friendly staff. I will come back and recommend everyone to try out at least the restaurant.

We were travelling from Switzerland to central Italy and this hotel was recommended to us by a fellow traveler. The location was perfect, much smaller than Como, easy to walk around, and easy to catch a boat to tour the lake or visit Como and surrounding towns.

I missed the notice to reserve a parking spot - they only have 3 spots - but we found paid parking right up the street. Free parking is available a few streets over, but you'll have to carry your luggage since there's no place to stop and unload in front of the hotel.

The room was clean and adequately sized for our 2 night stay. (For a longer visit I would have wanted a dresser with drawers). The AC was welcome, and the street noise died down after 10 p.m., but if you go to bed early and/or are sensitive to noise, ask for a room in the back.

The staff was always friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was very nice, and even included fresh eggs to soft or hard boil. We ate dinner at the restaurant both nights and the pizza was delicious. Service was good for both breakfast and dinner.

The hotel offers good value for money, and is easy to reach for those just passing through. For those staying longer, Cernobbio is much quieter than Como, but still well connected.

The artwork featured on the walls ranged from modern to funky to bizarre, and was quite a surprise.

Be warned: there is no lift/elevator.

Room Tip: For a quiet room ask for a room in the back

This is a really lovely little hotel . Clean and comfortable and very welcoming . Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Only 2 * because it has no lift - but the helpful staff carried our cases to the top floor . Simple breakfast . Dinners were lovely - pizzas , salads etc eaten in the garden.
Bring insect repellent as the mozzies are around as its so close to the lake. Definitely recommend highly !
