Honeymoon accommodation??

Good evening all!

I was hoping to get some advice for some Lake Como accommodation for the first night or two of our honeymoon in Italy.

We are flying into Malpensa (via Dubai) from Australia... and don't land until mid afternoon (late April). After a long haul flight, we don't want to drive too far... so we are looking at staying the first night or two around Como or Tremezzo... but we're happy to consider any other great ideas within about 90 minutes of the airport.

We're thinking of then heading north into Switzerland and then coming back via Simplon Pass and heading for Genoa... and then to the south... if that helps at all.

I've been looking at Hotel Villa Marie and also Hotel La Perla... but wanted to see if anyone had some better recommendations. Our budget would be up to about 200 euros per night...

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated!

Thank you!

Neither Como (not the prettiest part of the Lake) or Tremezzo (not much of a village, and almost everywhere you're confronted with the very busy lake side road) are the best spots on Lake Como.

Check Bellagio or Varenna: much better!

We're going to be staying at the Hotel Regina Palace in Bellagio in Sept. and after much research found this is a perfect location. Wanted to stay at Hotel La Palma but they were sold out. Whichever hotel you decide on make sure you have a lake front view - that's what the lakes are all about - the view.

Soup-er - Thanks for correcting me. M:y mistake - Hotel Regina Palace and Hotel La Palma are both in Stresa/

.

In Bellagio we are staying at the Hotel Metropole right on the lake.
