We had an extraordinary time in Lake Como. The owners of Orso Bruno went above and beyond to accomodate our stay at a beautiful location. The view was spectacular and the staff was beyond helpful with any request. The location sits directly across from the water taxi and the bus stop is directly in front of the hotel. We would...

We booked the hotel for 2 nights based on the positive reviews on tripadvisor and the reasonable (almost low) price level. The hotel itself is a beautiful building in a great location. In a nice small village with the boat stop right on the doorstep. For less than 4 Euro you are in the center of Como and the boat...

Extremely friendly staff, good understanding of English. Simple, clean rooms, good bathrooms. Basic but good breakfast, excellent restaurant. As it's a bit off the main road, it's quiet, but you do have do drive 5-10 mins down narrow lanes.

My husband and i stayed here for our 10th anniversary. The owners of the hotel/restaurant were charming and accommodating. We booked on-line through the hotel's website, so you receive the best price. We tried to book last minute for 3 days in a row at the end of September, but were unable to secure a room for the middle night....

I was traveling from the US to Milan for business and had a weekend to explore by myself. I decided to get out of the city and Lake Como seemed like an appropriate weekend excursion due to its proximity to Milan. After searching where to stay on the lake, I found a reference to the Hotel Orso Bruno in a...

We stayed here one night on our way to Bellagio. The hosts were incredibly sweet and cooked us a quick meal even when the kitchen was closed. Small accommodations, but the view was wonderful. The location is right in front of a ferry stop and the walking paths around the hotel gave us more exposure to the sleep little village....

After a long search we picked this little hotel on the shores of Como. We only stayed one night while we were showing around a friend who came to visit us in Zurich. A fantastic drive to Como via San Gottardo pass (over the mountain route). We booked the hotel in a short notice. After seeing the reviews I requested...

If you do not have a car I would not recommend staying at this hotel. There are a very few eateries in the area and the boats/buses stop working by 8pm. It's a approximately a 40 Euro taxi fare from Como. The hotel provided us with some misinformation which was a let down.

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
