“Nice place”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

We stayed one night in this hotel during our return trip from Italy. We had a superior room facing the lake and we found a very clean room with a good working airconditioning. Room is not very large, but it has all you need for a good night's sleep. The main road passes in front of the hotel and a tunnel is nearby, but we had no disturbance from that.

We also had dinner in the adjoining restaurant, because it was easy and didn't have to drive to find something to eat. It's a big restaurant with a lot of sitting places, also on the terrace with a nice view over the lake. The food was just OK, but the waiters were really terrible. It looked like it was almost the first time they were working in a restaurant. For our table and for the table next to us, courses were forgotten. We sat there for 2,5 hours just for primi and secundi course, which is aboslutely too long. Breakfast was average.

The owner however was very friendly and spoke very good English and German. It's a family run place and you notice that as well.

I will definitely stay again in the Hotel, but won't eat anymore in the restaurant.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are facing the lake with a nice terrace

Turned up pretty late in the evening on the motorbike to a very nice welcome and delicious dinner, amd some good natured humour from the staff . Clean and comfortable. Nice bathroom, and a lovely balcony with a view of the lake and mountains.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view and balcony

Our experience of Hotel Sole in the north part of Lake Como are very good. Its really "spick and span", clean, proper and well managed. Perhaps it is not the most cosy and genuine in the sense of having the flavor of pastoral romanticism, but its "honest to god", the service are impeccable and the food (breakfast, dinner) are better than the Italian average.

The hotel beach is one of the best in the whole area of Lake Como and the little village of Rezzonico near by is a precious little jewel.

My wife, four children (ages 12 to 17) and I spent five nights at Hotel Sole. We had a very positive experience. The owners of this family-run hotel are friendly and helpful. The hotel is on a well-traveled road, between the beach and the mountains, but the traffic was not a bother, and the location is ideal for exploring different areas of Lake Como. Several good swimming beaches are within close walking distance, and if you have a car you can easily reach other beaches offering all sorts of water sports (kayaks, wind surfing, etc.). The mountains directly behind the hotel offer excellent hiking opportunities with incredible views of the lake. Rooms are recently refurbished and are air conditioned (contrary to some older reviews). The jewel of the hotel is the restaurant: the food and wine are outstanding in quality and price--not to be missed even if you stay somewhere else!

I am writing this review mainly for the restaurant, as this is very much our local hostelry when we are in Lake Como (our second home). Hotel Sole has a very large restaurant, and also a very attractive enclosed terrace area (which used to be open until they glazed it in).

They cater for walk in guests, as well as those residing in the hotel and the camp site next door, but don't let that put you off.

The food is always of an excellent standard and we have tried most things on the menu over the years. We can recommend the Insalata de Polipio, a warm seafood salad which we invariably order as it is so good, and the Filetto di Manzo with Porcini is also quite legendary as is the 'home made' Tiramisu.

The hotel is located on the main Via Regina on the west coast of Lake Como, around 5-10 mins drive from Menaggio - although set back off the road is is located next to one of the tunnels, so traffic noise can be heard if you are outside.

The place is always spotless, and we always received a warm welcome from the family and staff alike. The service is always excellent and the menu is varied and wine list comprehensive.

Family owned and very friendly reception. Great view of the lake, but the road in front is very busy and the rooms with the view noisy. Delicious food and great wines, very reasonable priced.

We had one night at lake como and stayed here as it seemed reasonably priced for the area. The hotel was just outside a little village on NW side of lake and you would have to have a car to stay there. There is nothing within walking distance except the lake itself which is the other side of the main road. We were too tired to go out driving so settled for eating in the hotel restaurant which was surprisingly nice and a nice room. The service all round was very friendly. The rooms were basic but clean.
