The day we arrived temperatures were near 100 degrees. When we opened the door, the hotel room was already hot and sticky. The air conditioner unit stated that one must call the front desk to either adjust the room temperature or turn the unit on. Upon placing a call to the front desk asking for someone to turn the unit on, I was told the air conditioning unit was broke and would be fixed the next day. Why such material fact was not conveyed to us by the front desk clerk upon our arrival speaks volumes about this hotel. That night we all sweltered in the room and attempted to sleep. The opened lake side window provided no relief as the was little breeze and the temperature stayed in the 80's for most of the night. The hotel made no billing adjustment for such major inconvenience nor did it even offer something as simple as a bottle or two of water. Moreover, when the unit was repaired the following day, it was placed on a timer by the staff. As a result, the room was once again incredibly hot when we returned at the end of the day. Other examples of the hotel's frugality can be demonstrated by the absence of any front desk staff on a couple of occasions, the lack of elevator service between midnight and 7:00 a.m., the fact that the hallway leading to the main elevator had motion sensor to turn a light on but meant you were in complete darkness for a couple of seconds when leaving the elevator and the fact that television remotes were given to you at the front desk ( as opposed to be left in the room) with the caveat that they be hand delivered to the front desk at checkout. While this hotel likes to consider itself as a luxury hotel ( charging 250 euros per night), its staffing levels and Ora ices indicate otherwise. I got a clear sense that it was all about profit with no real concern for it's customers. Will not be going back!

My niece and her partner (now husband!) had their wedding there on the 26th July. Our room was very clean and had an excellent view of Lake Como.
The wedding was terrific. The buffet after the ceremony, and later in the day the seven course evening meal were fantastic. Absolutely marvelous food and all in such a beautiful setting.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 212. No air con but the quiet fan was more than adequate and the daytime temp was around 34.. Lovely view of the lake. We asked for a twin room. This one had a double and a single so no complains!

The view from our very large room was spectacular--lake como and the surrounding mountains as well as beautiful gardens. Our room was sparsely furnished but very clean, huge and very comfortable. Also, it was very quiet and we could stroll through the beautiful gardens whenever we wanted to.

Stayed in Villa Cipressi hotel in room Villa Magnolia. There is a beautiful well-groomed garden in hotel where like to provide weddings local population therefore the restaurant of hotel is often closed. Hotel staff very useful.

Room Villa Magnolia is rather big - about 40 m or more. The big and well equipped bathroom. Huge balcony with a smart view of the lake. Sitting on this balcony you feel as the owner of own private villa. Such impression that this small lodge served earlier as an arbor at Villa Cipressi. In room it is necessary to replace windows which are badly closed therefore even in June at bad weather it was rather cool. But in room to be in a full privacy - there are no neighbors from above and sideways.

The sad impression was left by a breakfast. Very modest. Fried eggs can't be received even for an additional payment. But most of all surprised 3 iron barrels with inscriptions: coffee, hot water, milk. For 360 euros per night it would be desirable to see at least the coffe machine, allowing to receive some types of coffee, and also to have opportunity to receive fried eggs.

This was where we began our Italian adventure. It was a perfect start to a wonderful two weeks. Very convenient, comfortable--and wonderful breakfasts! The view from our room was worth the walk from the train station. Besides, the town is downhill from the station. We missed out seeing the garden--a wedding was in progress the day/night we were there. Will definitely plan to stay more than one night next trip!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of Lake Como. You won't regret it!
