We came here on a two day package (arranged by the hotel) which seemed terrific value for money. Two nights with 2 breakfasts (very good) and 1 evening dinner and a bottle of sparkling wine in the room on arrival.
The hotel was very nice and clean. Room was quite small but the bathroom was big with lovely large fluffy towels and a great shower (spoiled only by a slight drainage smell). The staff were helpful and friendly.
However there were some niggles..
If you come by car and you don't want to pay a fortune on parking meters, book one of the two hotel parking places. We didn't but parking is a nightmare in Como and it could have spoiled our stay. Later on our arrival day we were lucky the receptionist was able to find us a free place. We didn't use the car after that!
Second niggle was the bottle of wine. There wasn't one until we asked about it on day 2. It was there when we came back after sightseeing, but it was hardly a BOTTLE of wine. In fact it was 200 ml. Oh well, we had a small glass each, not a problem but a bit misleading nevertheless. Third niggle was the dinner. This, we were told, was not at the hotel but in a restaurant up the road. We knew that drinks were not included. The menu given to us at the hotel had a choice of three starters and three main courses so we assumed (as did another couple from the hotel who were on the same package) that we could choose one starter and one main course from this menu. Not so. Dinner was only either a starter or a main course. Hardly dinner and because the meal was not at the hotel, a service charge (coperta) was also charged so we ended up paying over 26 euros extra, The hotel must make this clear to avoid people feeling they have been misled.
