This was a very nice hotel with comfortable beds. From the lobby we could see lake Como. From my room I was only able to see the next building. I was very tired from spending a few hours on the coach. I welcomed the quiet and comfort of my room.

Excellent hotel with a very comfortable bed. Our room on the fourth floor overlooked a square and the lake. The breakfast buffet offered delicious fresh fruit with none of that preservative that some places use. Choice of cold and hot food as well.

We took the mainline train from Milano Centrale; to Como the Hotel is a short taxi ride or 10 minute walk Como is a great base and a good destination- in itself with a lovely Cathedral and historic centre.; staying here you are adjacent to the Ferry wharf so you can take a ferry to some great Lakeside towns including Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna
