When i booked i was deceived by the pictures into thinking the big yellow character buiding you can see across the lake was the hotel. Instead it is a beastly modern apparition that is a two star masquerading as 4 . Add says rooms are spacious --haha-smallest room I have had -dirty wallpaper -small bathroom. The only redeeming features are the nice desk clerk who speaks Excellent English & is charming & the nice view from the lake view balcony -can' t believe the so-called air conditioning no way to adjust -No charm -no character -i would prefer a Best Western which is saying something. Next time I would take a ferry & stay in Bellagio -Como is a has-been resort with little charm.
