This property is not a typical hotel and as some of the review responses indicate, it is more like an intimate guest house. We stayed in the top level room with the view of the garden, lakes and mountains. It is cosy and you will certainly mix with guests in close proximity (for example at breakfast or even just coming out of your room) as the common areas are not vast and large. This is something we liked! The manager and staff were very helpful and welcoming and as we are not the traditional or experienced "European" travellers, it was likely they found some of our requests odd or interesting. This didn't phase them. We enjoyed the fact that it was in a more quiet location within the Como district but that the town across the lake provided pretty much everything we could need. We used it as a base for some nice self-drive day trips to St. Moritz and other well known areas. The drives were lovely. A few things that could be improved; the entrance is not very well marked and dragging your luggage through the gravel entryway is a little bit difficult on rollers, they should definitely share with all guests that they should have their own car, or rent a car as the dining options are limited on their side of the lake and you may not feel like walking out to get food after your day as a busy tourist, the open concept shower unfortunately sprays water all over the floor and it stays wet all night (including getting the toilet paper all wet!). However, on the good side, the design is unique and enjoyable to look at and experience, the size is small and intimate set among the pine trees and with a gorgeous mountain as a backdrop, the breakfast is nice and fresh and well served, the Honor Bar concept is cool and we liked it. We would definitely return.
