We lived until recently in Italy for 3 years and have travelled extensively throughout both Italy and Europe, as independent travellers. This hotel was the worst experience we've had in all respects. Cold, non existant service, no atmosphere (contrary to what we love about Italy) and appalling 'value for money'. It is the most we have paid for a mid level hotel in Italy (as well as other countries in Europe), and for this we didn't get breakfast ... or even a coffee. The bedroom was dark, the towels frayed and old, and not even a glass for a drink of water but 'throw-away' plastic cups. The shower was a pipe at one end of the bathroom.
Cernobbio is a beautiful place and a favourite for us when we lived in Como; so we know the area very well and would recommend the village to anyone. This hotel was a major disappointment for our trip - it's lucky we know a great osteria and some friendly local bars in Cernobbio otherwise we would have had a ruined weekend. If you want to experience 'Real Italy' - passionate service and great value, choose another hotel for your visit.
